Many of us experience the benefits of capsules as more subtle and long-lasting than CBD drops. Drops, in contrast, tend to be faster-acting. If you've never tried CBD before, we'd encourage you to try both capsules and drops and see what works best for you. Our capsules are free of animal by-products. They are slightly larger in size—something to be aware of, if you have difficult swallowing—but contain the same CBD oil as our softgels.
