With so many different ways to consume or apply CBD it’s often difficult to understand the differences and nuances between different product types. In a previous blog we covered the pros and cons of CBD oils and capsules, in this blog we’re going to highlight what makes these products different from one another. Looking beyond the differences in how these two products can be absorbed, the most profound difference lies in consumer preference.
How you choose to consume CBD products completely depends on your desired outcomes. It can be tricky to find the right CBD product to buy if you are unaware of the different products that are available and how they can help you. Read on to discover different CBD oils and capsules and find the one that suits your needs the best.

What is CBD oil?
CBD oils are one of the most commonly found CBD products in the market today. It is an all-natural product that comes from extracting cannabidiol from the hemp plant. The result of the extraction process is a pure and potent cannabidiol extract that doesn’t contain any psychoactive elements. This extract is then diluted in a carrier such as coconut oil or hemp seed oil and packaged in small bottles with a dropper for easy application under your tongue.
Types of CBD oil products
CBD oil comes in a variety of concentrations and blends. They are very easy to consume – all you have to do is measure your desired quantity, and use the dropper to drop it under your tongue. Hold for 30 to 60 seconds, and then swallow.
Found makes available CBD oil tinctures of different concentrations that are perfect for all kinds of CBD users. This means that if you are an experienced CBD user, you can try out our Flow Max Strength CBD oil which contains around 6,000 mg of CBD per 30 ml bottle, or our Flow AM CBD Oil which provides 900 mg of CBD per 30 ml bottle.
The difference in the types of concentrations means there really is something for everyone. People who are new to CBD generally should start with lower concentrations, depending on their body composition and gradually increase over time.
CBD is usually added to different carriers or blends for added benefits. For instance, Found’s PM CBD Oil offers CBD in a blend of lavender, bergamot, and roman chamomile helping you rest and relax at the end of a long, tiring day. On the contrary, if you are looking for a boost of energy before you start your day, you can also explore Found AM CBD Oil that offers CBD in a blend of lime and black pepper. There is a range of different complementary ingredients that can be added to CBD oils, depending on the manufacturer.
What are CBD Capsules?
CBD capsules are a simple and convenient way to take CBD oil. They look just like other types of supplements and can be taken with your favorite beverage. The dosage of CBD in each of the capsules is fixed, so you don’t need to keep measuring your desired amount of CBD as you would with a CBD oil.
Types of CBD capsule products
CBD soft-gel capsules generally contain CBD oil and is stored in the form of soft gels mixed with another carrier, instead of CBD oil in bottles. Found provides a selection of CBD softgels that are made with active ingredients such as melatonin which is a naturally occurring hormone that can help regulate your sleep cycle.
Found provides a range of CBD capsules that are made from active ingredients such as curcumin, melatonin, and others to help you regulate your sleep cycle and support muscle recovery and relief.
CBD Capsules are slightly different in that they generally don’t contain CBD oil, rather a CBD isolate. CBD isolate is a white powdery substance that has undergone an extraction and refinement process to remove everything besides the CBD compound. This CBD isolate can be placed within capsules on its own or with other complimentary active ingredients such as curcumin which can support muscle recovery and relief.
CBD oils vs. CBD Capsules – Which is better?
There are benefits to both these forms of CBD products, but neither is 100% better than the other. If you find CBD capsules to be a convenient way to incorporate CBD intake into your daily diet, or you prefer the flexibility on your CBD serving offered by CBD oils – the choice is yours. Neither is better than the other but can become the best for you if your requirements are met.
