Capsules and edibles deliver CBD in ways that are easy to consume.
There are two common forms of CBD isolate —oil, and powder. You can take them as tinctures, pills, edibles… the list goes on. We have an obvious favorite (more on that later). But the best way to take CBD is the method that works for you.
HOW TO TAKE CBD TINCTURE
It turns out that figuring out how to take CBD doesn’t have to be complicated. It all comes down to taste and effectiveness. Taste is just what flavors you prefer (and for many, herbaceous hemp isn’t a preferred flavor).

Higher bioavailability means it’s easier for your body to access and use more of a product’s CBD.
Follow the recommendations of the manufacturer to decide how many capsules or gummies you should take per day. CBD dosage depends on your body size, activity level, and health goals, as well as the concentration of CBD in the capsule or edible. Pay close attention to manufacturer recommendations and only use a product that is third-party tested to make sure you’re getting consistent dosing, and that the product is free of toxins or pesticides. If the manufacturer won’t share a third-party test, don’t use that product.

A tincture or oil containing the same quantity of CBD can be greater than double the price of the isolate product. Take the comparison below as an example:
