CBD Oil Capsules
To choose the best CBD capsules, the Forbes Health editorial team analyzed data on more than 50 products that are:
- Made from plants grown in the U.S.
- Have a certificate of analysis (COA)
- Are third-party tested by ISO 17025-compliant laboratories
- Are made with all natural ingredients
We then ranked CBD capsule products based on price, potency and dietary friendliness (gluten-free, vegan, organic and more).
What Are CBD Capsules?
CBD capsules are a pill-like product you consume orally. The capsules consist of a casing, often made with gelatin (or a vegan or vegetarian substitute), and filling containing a specific amount of CBD.
CBD capsules are one of the many ways people can consume CBD, including oil tinctures, gummies and other edibles, and smoke or vapor inhalation.
Why Use CBD Capsules?
CBD capsules are popular for a few main reasons, according to Nick Jackowetz and Cam MacNeil, the chief scientific officer and chief commercial officer of Cirona Labs, which manufactures and processes cannabinoid ingredients.
“Capsules are flavorless, which can be a pleasant experience for a novice CBD user,” says Jackowetz. “They also contain a precise dose that doesn’t require any expertise to use and takes the guesswork out for the consumer.”
Many people are already used to taking pills, and most capsules are small, making them easy to add to your routine even when on the go.
How Do CBD Capsules Compare to CBD Oils?
CBD capsules are handy if you want to take a specific dose each time. However, you are limited to the dosage of the product. For example, if one capsule contains 20 milligrams of CBD, you can’t adjust your dosage by 5 milligrams. You can only go up or down by 20 milligrams.
CBD oil tinctures, which come in bottles with a dropper, make it easier to find a middle-of-the-road dose. However, you also face greater variability in how much CBD you measure and ultimately consume with the dropper.
Time to Take Effect
CBD capsules take a bit longer to take effect than CBD oil tinctures. “With capsules, the CBD must travel through the stomach into the liver and gut to be metabolized,” says Laura Fuentes, a licensed compounding pharmacist and chief officer of science and innovation at Green Roads, a CBD company. “[On the other hand], if you hold CBD oil in your mouth for 30 to 40 seconds before swallowing, some of the CBD is absorbed through the oral mucosa (the membrane lining of the mouth) straight into the bloodstream.”

What is new about Charlotte’s Web CBD oil capsules?
A lot! First, as the name implies, our new capsules are filled with liquid, Charlotte’s Web hemp extract and organic extra virgin olive oil, to be exact. There are two new concentrations: 15mg and 25mg. Plus, we’ve added a new 90-count bottle, in addition to our 30 and 60 count bottles.
What is the difference between your new liquid-filled capsules and the old powder-filled capsules?
Our new liquid-filled CBD capsules are plant-based, vegan, and contain a higher concentration of CBD. They also come at a lower price per milligram of CBD.
What is the difference between liquid-filled CBD capsules and softgels?
There are a few. For one, our liquid-filled capsules are made with cleaner ingredients, whereas softgels can contain gelatin, glycerin, carrageenan, and other sorbitol additions. They also have thinner capsule walls than most softgels, which are designed to help them disintegrate faster. They are more stable in high-temperature and low-humidity environments as well.
