CBD Softgels: Are They Right for You?


Taking CBD in a softgel form is different from other methods like oils. It offers unique benefits and is absorbed into the body differently, and it’s worth exploring to find out if it’s the best option for you.

Making CBD part of your daily wellness can be a deeply personal process. Like fingerprints, no two routines look the same. As you explore your options, we want to make sure you have all the information you need to make the best possible decision about which method works best for you. With that in mind, what can you expect from Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract CBD softgels?


Swallowing a CBD softgel means its ingredients will pass through your digestive system and be metabolized and sent to your bloodstream. A lot of CBD can get lost along the way in that process, so a product’s bioavailability is very important. Our Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract CBD softgels are made with the whole hemp plant – including the organic hemp seed oil in each softgel. Much like the coconut MCT oil in our tinctures and sprays, hemp oil has high bioavailability. That means you can feel confident that with each softgel you take, your body is absorbing as much of the CBD in it as possible.


Oil drops and sprays are great because you can have a lot of variety in your daily serving size. If you feel the need for an extra boost in the morning, maybe you enjoy a dropper and a half instead of just one.

But it can be more difficult to measure extremely accurately how much you’re getting: maybe your bottle is running low and your dropper isn’t filling to the top, for example. CBD softgels take all the guesswork out of serving sizes: each one contains a precise, consistent serving.

In fact, you may find that your preferred “CBD fingerprint” involves combining softgels and oils: a daily reliable CBD serving that you adjust and customize with CBD oil supplements!


A lot of softels have a shell that’s made of gelatin – an animal-based collagen. Manitoba Harvest believes in being accessible to everyone and staying true to our founder’s plant-based roots, and that’s why our softgel shells are made from plant-based ingredients.


Taking CBD as an oil tincture is a bit more of an experience than CBD softgels: you get the taste and the mouthfeel of holding an oil under your tongue for a minute or more. If that doesn’t sound appealing to you, CBD softgels are a great substitute.


You might already have a tried and true daily vitamins and supplements routine – CBD softgels are a natural addition! It’s quick and easy to wash them down with a glass of water and are a discreet addition to a pill container. They make travel a breeze too – there’s no risk of them leaking in your bag!


It’s important to remember that nobody can tell you the best way to take CBD except you. We encourage you to experiment with different methods and serving sizes until you find your perfect fit. We stand by that with our satisfaction guarantee!
