Why Take CBD Capsules?
CBD capsules are one of the easiest and most convenient ways to ingest a pre-measured quantity of CBD. Both our regular and softgel capsules are infused with quality hemp extract containing CBD oil, so you simply have to decide on the most suitable dosage, and administer as needed.
We offer a wide range of CBD strengths and capsule types to choose from.
Advantages of Softgels and Other Capsules
When it comes to dietary or herbal supplements—including CBD—bioavailability is a key consideration of both consumers and manufacturers. This refers to the proportion of a substance that’s absorbed by the body and actively circulates the system, rendering a noticeable effect on the consumer. Poor bioavailability generally leads to lower efficacy, whereas better bioavailability and liquid solubility correlates with greater absorption. Softgel capsules, made with gelatin or vegan substitutes and containing liquid ingredients, typically have good bioavailability—thus why they’ve long been a popular delivery form of supplements. (4)
While softgels are more costly to manufacture than regular capsules, they’re very convenient to transport, store and consume. The contents are usually wrapped with a sealed band that protects them from oxidation and external tampering. (2)
Regular capsules are a good option for supplements made from powders and substances other than liquid. For instance, we offer a capsule that contains curcumin in addition to CBD extract.
Unlike some other CBD oil forms, softgels are easy to swallow and generally known to have minimal side effects. Both softgels and regular capsules are free of the strong smell and flavor that puts some people off CBD products. Additionally, studies have indicated that humans are quite tolerant to high doses of CBD, so the risk of overdose is almost nonexistent. A 2011 study conducted at the University of São Paulo found that chronic use of CBD and very high doses—up to 1,5000mg daily—are reportedly well tolerated in humans. However, you don’t need to administer a high dose to get the potentially desirable effects and holistic benefits. (1) (5)
Safe Use Of CBD Capsules
Prior to taking any sort of CBD product—whether pills, capsules or softgels—consult your doctor about the possible risks of introducing the supplement to your daily routine. This is vital to ensure there aren’t any known chemical interactions with prescribed medications you’re already taking. Once you start using CBD, it’s a good idea to carefully monitor how your body responds over time, and note any changes that occur as you increase or decrease your dosage. Significant side effects due to CBD are rare, but they can occur. While more conclusive evidence is needed to substantiate test results, researchers continue to study varied dosages of CBD, testing various formulations for different medical conditions. (3)
There are different factors to consider in regards to dosage and possible effects—both intentional and residual. These are things such as body weight, medical conditions, lifestyle and alcohol use. For instance, taking CBD regularly and consuming a lot of alcohol may cause drowsiness and potentially intensify the naturally sedating effects of CBD. In terms of safety, CBD products are considered very low risk, according to the World Health Organization. High-quality CBD oil doesn’t carry the chance of addiction and abuse that marijuana and CBD products containing high levels of THC are associated with. However, the FDA has not approved the use of CBD products for medical treatment, with the exception of one drug, Epidiolex, for certain epileptic seizures. Legally, it’s still considered a food supplement.
Which CBD Capsules Should You Use?
We offer CBD capsules in a number of strengths, with the milligram dosage referring to the quantity of cannabidiol in each pill. The 15mg, 25mg, 50mg, 75mg and 150mg sizes are all CBD softgels, while the 100mg dosage is a vegan-friendly powdered hemp extract capsule. This range allows you to choose the strength that’s most appropriate for your individual CBD needs. CBD softgels are thought to break down in the stomach little more quickly than regular capsules do, so the product may be absorbed into your system at a faster rate. Our powder-filled capsules are natural and vegan, so they’re suitable for all diet types and restrictions; they’re also environmentally friendly and sustainable.
We infuse our liquid softgels and capsules with the highest quality full-spectrum CBD hemp extract available. So, not only do they contain cannabidiol, but also countless other cannabinoids, from CBC to CBG, CBN, terpenes, flavonoids and phytonutrients. When combined, these are believed to work synergistically to enhance the effects on receptors in the body’s endocannabinoid system. This phenomenon is known as the entourage effect and many believe it may have the potential to maximize health benefits related to CBD.
We now also offer water-soluble CBD capsules. Since water-soluble CBD is believed to be more easily absorbed by the body, most people need only about 1/3 as much as regular CBD. For instance, if you typically take 15mg of traditional CBD, you may find that just 5mg of water-soluble CBD will achieve the same results. Our water-soluble products are available in three strengths—5mg, 10mg and 20mg—and each also contain 250mg of curcumin. This chemical compound is thought to have powerful anti-inflammatory properties and antioxidants, which may supplement the benefits of CBD.
Specifications on each water-soluble product can be found on their individual product pages.
In order to choose the most appropriate product for your needs, we recommend first identifying how many milligrams of CBD you wish to take. Read more about how much CBD to take and other frequently asked questions on this page. Once you’ve determined the amount of CBD you need, simply choose your desired strength from the options available above.

CBD Capsules & CBD Pills FAQs
Do CBD Capsules Expire?
Yes. CBD capsules and softgels generally have a shelf life of two years if they're stored properly in a cool, dry location.
What strength of CBD Capsules should I order?
There is no scientific answer to this question, as efficacy depends on the unique physiology of a person’s body and the amount of CBD it needs to render desirable effects. We have an FAQ page on our website dedicated to this subject—click here. On this page, you’ll find tips to help you determine the correct dosage for your individual needs and a quick method of calculating how much CBD is in each product. We suggest reading ALL the information provided prior to purchase, so that you can make a well-informed decision. Ultimately, most people find that some experimental trial and error is necessary to discover the optimal amount of CBD to take.
Are CBD capsules more effective than other consumable products (such as CBD gummies or CBD oil tinctures)?
All Highland Pharms CBD products are made from the same organic hemp extract—a full-spectrum extract containing CBD, along with a huge array of cannabinoids and phytonutrients found naturally in the plant (excluding THC). Since all of our products contain the same main ingredient, most customers find that each one benefits them equally. However, some people do find CBD capsules to be more effective than other consumable items like gummies, as each body is different.
Do CBD capsules and softgels contain THC?
No. In order to be considered federally legal for purchase in the United States, all CBD products must contain less than 0.3% THC. This content ensures the products aren’t psychoactive and therefore won’t get you “high”.
How long does it take for CBD capsules to become effective?
In most cases, CBD pills take approximately 45 minutes to go into effect, however this time frame can vary significantly. Some people notice the benefits of CBD within an hour of their first use, while others may not experience noticeable results until several days or weeks of regular consumption. The perceived benefits of CBD and the time it takes to experience them depend on how the body responds to cannabidiol.
How do CBD softgels compare to regular capsules?
Generally speaking, the ingredients inside of softgels are absorbed differently, often more quickly, than traditional capsules. This is thought to be due to their bioavailability and liquid solubility.
However, everybody responds to medication and supplements differently. The absorption rate of all supplements and medicines depends on many unique physiological factors, such as metabolism and tolerance.
Why should I take CBD oil capsules?
Many consumers choose CBD oil capsules for the sake of convenience. The ease and simplicity of taking a pre-measured serving of CBD is understandably appealing—especially to those who juggle busy schedules and benefit from a low-maintenance medication regimen. Many also prefer not to apply a topical product, or eat something containing CBD. They simply want something they can ingest fast and safely.
What is the difference between CBD softgels and CBD hard pills?
Generally speaking, most brands that offer CBD hard pills manufacture these products with CBD isolate. CBD isolate is the most processed form of CBD, and the result of removing all other chemical compounds from CBD extract including THC—the psychoactive chemical found in the cannabis plant.
Broad-spectrum is somewhere in between CBD isolate and full-spectrum CBD, in that it contains most naturally occurring cannabinoids, but is THC-free. In terms of manufacturing costs, broad-spectrum CBD is the most labor-intensive and expensive to produce, which explains why many companies choose to use CBD isolate in their products instead.
We offer CBD oil capsules and CBD softgels made with full-spectrum CBD. This form retains all of the cannabinoids and phytonutrients found naturally in the hemp plant. The hemp plants used in our products are all non-GMO (not genetically modified), grown without pesticides and contain no more than .03% of THC, so the presence of this cannabinoid is not an issue. When these additional compounds are present and no solvents, pesticides or heavy metals are detected in the final product, some users report experiencing better results and more therapeutic benefits.
It’s important to note that these spectrums aren't regulated by the FDA, so it's crucial to purchase CBD oil and capsules from a trustworthy source with excellent customer reviews and high star ratings. We’re proud to deliver quality products that have undergone third-party lab testing, derived from sustainably-grown industrial hemp plants.
Conversely, we offer CBD Oil Capsules and/or softgels which are made from Full Spectrum Hemp Extract. This is extract that has all of the cannabinoids and phytonutrients found naturally in the hemp plants. When all these compounds are taken together, most people realize much better results.
Are softgels vegan- and vegetarian-friendy?
Regular softgel capsules are made using gelatin—an animal product—making them unsuitable for those following a vegan or vegetarian diet. However, we also offer vegan CBD hemp capsules, with shells made from an alternative material.
How many CBD oil capsules or CBD softgels should I take?
At Highland Pharms, we offer CBD capsules in many different strengths. Due to the variety of our product range, you should be able to find an option that is appropriate for you in a single capsule. The correct serving size of CBD differs from person to person; some people may find they need to take CBD capsules more than once per day to attain the desired effects.
We typically suggest that those new to CBD start by taking CBD capsules twice a day—once in the morning and once in the evening. After several days, you can adjust your routine and frequency to a dosing schedule that works best for your lifestyle and needs.
