What You Should Know About CBD Edible Capsules

Are you looking into taking CBD regularly to help manage a health condition? If so, you're likely looking at all the different ways that you can take it. While oils and edible gummies are popular ways to take CBD, you may be considering a simple edible capsule. Here are some things you should know about this form of CBD before you start using it. 

Why Use CBD Edible Capsules?

Many people use CBD in an edible capsule form because of the convenience. You can store the capsules in a normal container and take them as if they were any other medication or vitamins that you take every day. The capsule form also makes them incredibly convenient to take no matter where they are. All you need to do is store them in a container, and can be taken with you in a purse, briefcase, or backpack. 

Can You Alter The Dosage Of CBD Edible Capsules?

You will buy the capsules in a form where the dosage is set for all of the capsules you receive. If it is a gel capsule, you can't exactly cut the capsule in half to decrease the dosage. That is why it is recommended that you use CBD in another form at first to learn how much you need on a daily basis. It is easy to cut a gummy in half or to use a specific amount of CBD oil, so you can make small alterations to increase or decrease your dosage.

Once you know a dosage of CBD that you are comfortable with, then consider buying the soft gel capsules that have the exact dosage that you desire. You can also buy them at half the dosage and take two capsules at a time, which gives you some more flexibility over how much CBD you can take. 

Do CBD Edible Capsules Need To Be Stored A Certain Way?

Treat CBD edible capsules as if they were any other medication. You'll want to keep them in a place around 74°F and away from a heat source, which typically means in your home in a medicine cabinet. Don't keep them in your car, which can get very hot during the day when left out in the sun. They should also be kept out of direct sunlight, so avoid putting them on your windowsill or another place where the capsules will have light shining on them all day long.
