CBD comes in all shapes and sizes, and it’s easy to get lost in the sea of CBD products on the market. Even here at Smile, we offer CBD in multiple forms depending on your preferred method of consumption. There are great advantages to CBD in all its forms, but some are more suitable for certain needs than others. Some users simply have preferences for a certain form, while others may have an easier time ingesting one form versus another.

What’s the specific difference between CBD oil tinctures and CBD capsules? Is one better than the other? When should one or the other be used? The truth is, with so many forms of CBD available, it’s hard for consumers to know which choice is the best one for them. Smile is here to clear up any confusion about CBD capsules vs. oil so you can be properly-advised on making the best choice for enhancing your healthy lifestyle by using safe and natural CBD supplements.

What are CBD Oil Tinctures?

CBD oil is one of the original and most well-known forms of CBD you’ll see available for sale today. A CBD oil tincture is simply a balance of CBD isolate– 100% pure liquid cannabidiol– and a compatible solvent (or “carrier oil”) that helps the tincture go down smoothly. At Smile CBD, we don’t use any alcohol or unnatural, unhealthy mixtures in our CBD tinctures. Instead, our health-conscious CBD tinctures are made with a carefully-selected combination of plant oils– hemp seed oil and medium-chain triglyceride coconut oil– to ensure your body is getting a natural and healthy blend of ingredients that’s free of adulterants or synthetic chemicals.

Oil tinctures are most commonly used by way of a glass dropper and can be consumed directly by mouth or indirectly by applying to food or drink. While Smile’s CBD oils have a pleasant and mild flavor, you often don’t notice much taste at all when consuming your oil applied to food or drink. Most CBD oil tinctures, including those made by Smile CBD, come in 1-ounce bottles that are easy to carry around with you and store in any medicine chest with your other supplements.

Advantages of CBD Oil Tinctures

CBD oil tinctures are very simple to use. Most customers measure their doses with the included marked glass dropper which makes it easy to add to food, beverages, or even drop right into your mouth. For individuals who have trouble swallowing capsules and for those who don’t like gummies, CBD oil tinctures are an incredibly easy way to consume their health supplements.

Oil CBD products are also easy to combine with other popular health-promoting ingredients that make Smile CBD oil tinctures more than just a simple CBD supplement. Our “Energize” blend contains a mixture of vitamin B12, ginseng, and 5-HTP that helps keep you calm, focused, and clear-headed. On the other hand, our “Unwind” CBD oil tincture is made with a blend of melatonin and 5-HTP which helps you, as the name suggests, wind down and relax after a stressful day.

5-HTP sounds like it’s only found in science labs, but actually, it’s a naturally-occurring amino acid that stimulates serotonin production in the brain. Low levels of serotonin have been linked to an increased risk of depression, but serotonin production can be enhanced with the proper use of 5-HTP products. For this reason, we’ve found that 5-HTP is a safe, popular, and all-natural additive to use in combination with CBD oil tinctures. It has also been known to help suppress appetite and promote weight loss.

Our CBD oil tinctures are also fortified with rich omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 fatty acids that are well-known for their unique and important health benefits. While you traditionally have to consume a very specific diet to ensure you’re supplying your body with all three of these crucial healthy fats, Smile CBD oil packs all of them into one easy-to-use tincture so you can get a daily boost that promotes your heart health and mental health along with helping to decrease inflammation.

What are CBD Gummies?

CBD isn’t just sold in oil tinctures or capsules. It can be baked right into a delicious and easy-to-use flavored gummy that makes them go down smooth and has a delicious taste. CBD gummies are small in size and come in packages of thirty 10mg pieces, and Smile offers its CBD gummies in 3 fun and fresh fruit flavors that offer a little something for everyone.

CBD edibles are very popular because it doesn’t feel like you’re consuming a vitamin or supplement, but you’re still giving your body the wellness boosts that CBD offers. Smile’s CBD edibles aren’t just packed with health benefits, but they’re 100% all-natural and vegan. In fact, we offer the only completely vegan CBD gummy around, making our CBD edibles suitable for any individual despite their dietary preferences.

Like our oil tinctures, our gummies are pure CBD isolate meaning the active ingredient is 100% cannabidiol without any unwanted adulterants. Your health and wellness is our priority, so we use only the best lab-tested and third party-verified isolate in each and every one of our CBD products.

Advantages of CBD Gummies

CBD gummies are popular among users looking for a more familiar and tolerable method of CBD consumption. Gummies are sweet and packed with flavor that makes users look forward to their daily supplement rather than feeling like they’re keeping a strict schedule they have to work hard to adhere to.

Gummies also contain a fixed dose of CBD which makes it very easy to control how much active ingredient you’re ingesting. If you and your physician decide that you need a specific dosage for effective health supplementation, it’s as easy as counting out however many gummy pieces you need to meet that threshold. Different needs may merit different doses, and your physician can help you determine exactly how much CBD is right for your wellness plan.

CBD edibles are an enjoyable way to consume your CBD that’s much easier than taking a pill or capsule. Some users experience trouble with swallowing CBD pills, so instead of offering unpleasant CBD capsules, Smile instead offers you a tasty gummy you can easily chew and swallow so you can take your supplement even if you don’t have any water on hand.

Like our CBD oil tinctures, our CBD multivitamin gummies are fortified with other safe and all-natural additives to further enhance the health benefits they can add to your wellness routine. While our CBD oil tinctures contain special blends to enhance your mental well-being, our CBD gummies are packed with a blend of well-known vitamins and minerals to enhance your physical health. We fortify Smile CBD edibles with zinc, magnesium, iron, calcium, and vitamins A, B12, and D3 to offer a holistic supplement that boosts your body’s needs with ingredients that are hard to get on their own without a very carefully-regulated diet.

Different Forms of CBD for Different Needs

Working with your physician, you can determine the best method of CBD product consumption for you. As we’ve explored a little bit above, you’ve learned that Smile CBD products are fortified with different all-natural additives to enhance different aspects of your overall well-being. Cannabidiol itself is associated with benefits like stress relief, mood stability, and improved focus. But taking CBD in its different forms offers more specific benefits.

The special blend of vitamins and minerals in Smile CBD gummies is optimized to promote complete body health. CBD edibles make it very easy to control your dose and take your supplement even without water, and Smile’s CBD edibles are completely vegan and made with all-natural additives.

Our CBD oil tinctures, on the other hand, are designed with your mental health in mind. The CBD oil experience feels a little bit more medicinal but offers you the option between direct sublingual ingestion or combination with food and drink. Our CBD oil products have a mild and pleasant flavor that makes it easy to consume, especially since taking oils is less common than it used to be.

When it comes to CBD products, you have different choices you can make depending on your individual needs. CBD may be a good choice for your health and wellness regimen if you’re seeking a whole-body solution to enhance your overall well-being.
