Making your own CBD capsules is an ideal option for those seeking the most convenient and yet precise way to take CBD. CBD, or cannabidiol, has been found to have antioxidant and neuroprotective properties and has shown in studies to be potentially beneficial for conditions like epilepsy, anxiety, Alzheimer’s disease, chronic pain, depression, and even cancer. Creating your own do-it-yourself capsules makes it’s quick and easy to get your daily dose of CBD, no matter how hectic your day gets or if you’re on-the-go.
Plus, by adding CBD oil to empty vegetarian capsules, you have complete control over serving size. While CBD hemp oil capsules are available to purchase, they contain a specific amount of CBD per capsule. By making your own, you can create capsules of higher or lower potency.
Creating your own DIY CBD hemp oil capsules takes just minutes. You can fill a single capsule before each use or make enough for the week or month ahead. Any filled capsules that are meant for later use can be placed in a baggie or pillbox and stored in the refrigerator until needed.
Things you’ll need to make your own CBD capsules:
- Your favorite CBD hemp oil product
CBD hemp oil is legal under federal law in the United States. Individual state laws, however, are dynamic and states may enact their own laws related to hemp-derived CBD. You can also obtain CBD products through ECHO’s charitable program. Learn more about how to get CBD oil here.
- Vegetarian capsules
Vegetarian capsules can be found online for around $10 or less for a quantity of 500.
How to make your own CBD capsules:
Adding your own CBD hemp oil is simple and doesn’t require any additional tools.
First, separate the two ends of a capsule and set aside the smaller end. Fill the larger end of the capsule with the desired quantity of CBD oil without overfilling. Some CBD hemp oils come in oral applicators with a nozzle and measure markers, making it easy to cleanly and precisely fill the capsule.
Once the end is filled with the oil, securely replace the smaller end to reseal the capsule.
When you’re ready to take a capsule, simply swish it down with a mouthful of your favorite beverage.
