Are CBDa + CBD Tinctures or Softgels Better?

Posted on April 14th, 2023

If you’re checking out our line of Tanasi products and wondering where to start, you may ask: are CBDa + CBD tinctures or softgels better?? Well, all of our products are more effective than products containing CBD alone, since research shows that Tanasi’s patent-pending, 1:1 formulation of CBD:CBDa delivers a minimum of 2X greater results.

But as for the best delivery method for your needs? Well, CBDa + CBD softgels and tinctures are both popular methods of dosing. In fact, one of the best things about supplementing hemp extracts is that today, there are many options available when choosing the best delivery method. Below are a few of the basics to keep in mind when it comes to choosing between tinctures and softgels.

• CBDa + CBD softgels are also known as capsules, similar to tablets or pills

• CBDa + CBD Tinctures come in a liquid form

• You swallow CBDa + CBD Softgels

• CBDa + CBD Tinctures are used best sublingually

CBDa + CBD Tinctures vs Softgels

When trying to establish which method is better, it generally comes down to personal preferences. But some features of each option may make one a better choice for you over the other. Here’s the story:

Our CBDa + CBD tinctures are available in liquid form, in various concentrations and flavors, ranging all the way to a 3600mg bottle with a delightful blueberry taste.

To make these products, we extract CBD + CBDa from the hemp plant; then we suspend and store it in liquid. In contrasts, with our CBDa+ CBD Softgel, we encapsulate the active ingredients inside a soft gel that you can swallow like a vitamin. The Softgel features a design so that it won’t pop or break open when swallowing it. Tinctures are made to be taken sublingually (placed under the tongue).

What Is A CBDa + CBD Softgel?

There are many reasons why consumers prefer Softgels over chewables, caplets, and tablets. Softgels:

• Won’t leave a bad aftertaste

• Don’t break up inside storage bottles

• Won’t dissolve in the mouth while swallowing

• Are much easier to swallow

To make CBDa + CBD softgels, we engulf phytocannabinoid-rich broad-spectrum hemp oil in gelatin, water and glycerin, making them an easy supplement to store and dose. The gelatin preserves the “integrity” of the CBDa + CBD products. When encapsulating a liquid in gelatin, the phytocannabinoids will not disperse very easily. This means that the gelatin preserves them, ensuring that your product maintains its strength and purity.

CBD Softgel Benefits

Many people who take Softgels find that these products are more gentle on their stomachs when compared to chewables and tablets. Plus gelatin, along with MCT and sunflower oils, help the body absorb CBDa + CBD more easily. This may increase the bioavailability of the phytocannabinoids and fatty acids in the Softgels.

CBDa + CBD Softgels Are Sealed For Bioavailability

Our Softgels are hermetically sealed. This means that nothing gets into the Softgel, and nothing gets out. In that airtight environment, we can protect phytocannabinoids from oxygen and light, both of which could compromise their potency and quality.

What Is A CBDa + CBD Tincture?

Now that we have covered some of the benefits relating to our CBDa + CBD Softgels, let’s talk about tinctures. Tinctures containing hemp were widely in use in the 20th century before prohibition.

To create this CBD delivery method, we separate and extract active ingredients from the hemp plant. Then, we strain the plant material from the oil or liquid. What is left behind is a CBD-rich substance. CBD on its own is potent or intense, which is why many manufacturers add flavorings to their CBD tinctures. Also, CBD on its own is less effective than our patent-pending, 1:1 formulation of CBD:CBDa, which is why we infuse this combination into all of our Tanasi products, including our tinctures and our Softgels.

CBDa + CBD Softgel Doses Vs CBDa + CBD Tincture Doses

Perhaps the biggest benefit that a tincture typically has over Softgels is the bioavailability and dosage. Tinctures are available in liquid form so you can control your dose easily. A Softgel, on the other hand, comes in a preset dose inside the capsule. Since you sublingually ingest the CBD, it enters the bloodstream faster than in a Softgel. Plus, since the CBD won’t be passing through the person’s stomach or having to go through any of the usual digestive processes, the CBD availability enters the system better than Softgels that first need to be swallowed. Even though a Softgel is tasteless and convenient, tinctures are more versatile when put to use.

CBD Softgels Vs. CBD Tinctures: What’s Better?

Both CBD tinctures and softgels are equally effective. They provide the same general effects, but differ on how quickly you’ll experience results.

Now, Softgels are easier on your stomach. They’re also easier to swallow. Plus, when you take Softgels, you don’t have to think about the dosage or serving size. This does away with the guesswork linked to tinctures, which can be confusing.

Certain people also find CBDa and CBD tinctures to be too strong when it comes to their taste buds. However, the process of taking a tincture is much faster, so those who want immediate CBD benefits should try this option.

At the same time, when a product is made with high-quality ingredients and flavors the tincture can actually taste great. For those who find it unpleasant to place a CBDa + CBD tincture directly under the tongue, you can try our water-soluble CBDa + CBD drink concentrate, adding it to other products such as smoothies, soup, water, or even baked goods.

Are CBDa + CBD Tinctures or Softgels Better? Combos that Change the Answer

So, which product is better? CBDa + CBD tinctures or CBDa + CBD Softgels? The answer to this question as mentioned before will typically have to do with personal preference. For those that are looking for immediate or fast results, tinctures are one of the fastest methods to get CBD into the body. If you want an easier way to supplement, you should probably choose our Softgels. Regardless of which method you decide on, both provide the same general effects, so there’s really no wrong decision.
