Whether in Berlin, Frankfurt or Leipzig - hemp is currently more in demand than ever in Germany. Due to the increasing demand, the market now offers a variety of handy products around the topic of hemp and, if there is no hemp store nearby, you can also buy hemp capsules and co. online. These hemp capsules enjoy great popularity thanks to their handy form.
If you are wondering what these capsules are exactly, how they work and how to take them correctly, then you are in the right place - we will explain everything about hemp capsules!
What are hemp capsules?
In hemp capsules, extracts of the hemp plant are further processed into capsules in several steps. For this process, the extracts are obtained from the female cannabis plant and purified to produce the purest possible product. Subsequently, the hemp oil is filled into capsules and thus brought to the market in a handy way.
The capsules often contain broad spectrum hemp extract from the cannabis plant that is "packed" into liposomes. The advantage of using liposomes is that the ingredients can be better absorbed by your body. This technique is also often used to facilitate the absorption of the ingredients in the body.
The capsules themselves usually have no flavor. Since some people don't particularly like the mild nutty taste of hemp oil, taste neutrality in hemp capsules is one of the big advantages over hemp in oil form. Depending on the processing, it is also possible that the manufacturer has added flavors or aromas to the capsules - so always read the product description carefully.
There are also hemp tablets where CBD oil is added to the hemp extract. However, these tablets are not legal in Germany according to the current legal situation: In this country, CBD may not be sold as a food supplement or for consumption. Products such as CBD oil may therefore only be sold as cosmetics for external use. In other countries, such as the USA, things are different. There, CBD capsules may be taken regularly.
How do I take hemp capsules and what is the best amount?
Hemp capsules, like all other capsules, are taken orally and then travel through the gastrointestinal tract. All you need is one capsule and a sip of water. Capsules with liposomal formulation also often have good bioavailability.
Finding the right amount for you will require a little trial and error on your part. In the beginning, you should start with a smaller amount to test the potential effect of the hemp capsules on you. However, please make sure that you do not exceed the recommended intake. In addition, supplements are not a substitute for a balanced and varied diet. However, they can be an ideal addition to your everyday life if you lead a healthy lifestyle.
What are micellar hemp capsules?
In micelle technology, the value-added ingredient of a formulation (e.g. hemp extract) is introduced into the interior of so-called micelles. Micelles are small fat droplets that can be absorbed very well in the intestine. The advantage of such a formulation is that substances that actually show poor bioavailability can thus be absorbed faster and better by the body. The bioavailability of the active ingredients of the hemp extract can thus be effectively increased.
What do I have to consider when using it?
Food supplements are not a substitute for a balanced diet. - Do not exceed the specified recommended daily intake. - Do not use during pregnancy and lactation. - Keep out of reach of children. - For adults only.
