CBD Capsules and CBD oil – what to choose? What’s the difference?

If you’re new to shopping for Cannabidiol (CBD), a natural compound found in the Hemp plant, then you may have this question. 

At Medterra, the CBD capsules and CBD oils are made with our well-known, hemp-derived isolated CBD. Both are made using MCT Oil, too. The standard CBD capsules have one other difference in the ingredients list: Bovine Gelatin. This is added to make the end product into its small, portable oval shape.

The most glaring difference between the two wellness product options is their physical structure. Capsules are, as named, a simple gel-capsule form. The oil, conversely, is in a liquid form and stored in bottles. Another difference is in the strength and amount of CBD in each serving.

The CBD Capsules come in two strengths: 25mg and 50mg. Convenient, simple and portable, capsules are an easy choice for those looking for concrete serving amounts as the milligrams listed is per capsule.

Medterra CBD Oils come in three different strength amounts: 500 milligrams, 1,000 milligrams, and 3,000 milligrams. These numbers are indicative of how much CBD is in the entire bottle. To know how much is in each milliliter serving (a full dropper), you can find that information on the serving size label on the back.

To measure a desired serving amount, one would simply read the indicating lines on the dropper that is inside of the bottle.

When it comes to choosing one or the other, it depends on personal preference and lifestyle. Some may choose capsules for the ease, convenience and portability. Others choose the oils because of the customizability of servings. 

For those that are new to CBD wellness supplements, the capsules are often the first choice as they get to know the compound and how they feel about consuming it. If you’re new to CBD, it’s often best practice to choose the lesser amount. Increasing the amount of milligrams per serving can be done over time and as desired.

All of Medterra’s CBD products are made using CBD isolate. Isolated CBD is just the Cannabidiol compound, safely extracted from the hemp plant. Once the hemp plant has been harvested, the natural compounds of THC (.3%), Terpenes (other cannabinoids) and CBD are pulled from the plant fibers. Extraction continues with the removal of the CBD from that initial process. 

[About CBD Isolate]

Some hemp extracted CBD products are labeled as Full Spectrum or Broad Spectrum. These are not CBD isolated products. They are still federally legal, but both contain other natural compounds found in the hemp plant. When you shop with Medterra, you’re choosing from recognized and well-loved CBD isolate products. No THC, ever. Guaranteed.

Whether you want to enjoy a capsule, an oil (or both), Medterra has exactly what you’re looking for. Shipped directly to you, our products are legal and third party tested for consistency.
