CBD FAQ

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the 113+ compounds found in hemp plants. It’s a non-intoxicating cannabinoid that has the ability to act on cannabinoid receptors that are part of the Endocannabinoid System (ECS).

Plant cannabinoids, also known as phytocannabinoids, bind with this system which helps regulate certain vital functions of the body, including:


  • Sleep
  • Appetite
  • Immune
  • Pleasure
  • Pain
  • Inflammation
  • And more!

When the ECS is in sync, the human body is able to achieve what is called homeostasis, which means your body is operating at optimal human performance.


What is the difference between Cannabis, Hemp, and Marijuana?

Cannabis is the plant species which is then legally recognized as two different plants, marijuana and hemp. Hemp is a cannabis plant that contains less than .3% THC. Marijuana contains much higher levels of THC which is the cannabinoid that causes intoxication.

What is the difference between Isolate, Broad Spectrum, and Full Spectrum CBD?

  • Full Spectrum
    • Created from hemp through full plant extraction
    • Includes all active hemp-derived cannabinoids, including <0.3% THC
    • Also contains plant terpenes, flavonoids, vitamins, minerals, plant proteins all from original hemp source
    • All compounds work together in what is known as the Entourage Effect to multiply the potential health benefits

  • Broad Spectrum
    • Created by taking Full Spectrum extract and further processing it to remove trace amounts of THC
    • Includes most active hemp-derived cannabinoids, except THC
    • Just like Full Spectrum, all compounds work together in what is known as the Entourage Effect to multiply the potential health benefits
  • Isolate
    • Created by removing all other molecules except CBD from the Full Spectrum extract
    • All that remains is a white powder that is at least 99% pure CBD with 0.0% THC

Why chose BNB Supplements CBD softgels?

There are many ways to take CBD. CBD can be swallowed, applied topically, vaped, or added to your favorite recipes. With such a variety of options, it’s not difficult to find a CBD product to suit your needs and your lifestyle.

If you’re looking for a convenient, no-fuss product, CBD softgels are a fantastic way to get your daily dose of CBD.

What Are CBD Softgels?

CBD softgels are a pre-measured dose of CBD in an easy-to-swallow gelatin shell. Softgels are formed, filled, and sealed in a single operation that protects encapsulated liquids from oxidation and contamination.1

Full Spectrum CBD Softgels

  •  Softgels made with full-spectrum CBD contain all the cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids found naturally in industrial hemp. Many consider full-spectrum CBD to be more potent than the isolate form.

Three Ingredients in CBD Softgels

The beauty of a CBD softgel is in the simplicity. There are three main ingredients and no need for artificial flavors. CBD Softgels commonly contain:

  • Hemp Extract

    Whether you select a full-spectrum softgel or a softgel made with isolate, it’s important to verify that the hemp oil in your softgel has been extracted from the stalks and stems of the plant because hemp seed oil does not contain CBD. It’s the hemp extract in your softgel that’s the star of the show because of its CBD content.

  • A Fat Base

    Cannabinoids are fat-solubleThat means fat is necessary for product absorption. While any edible, plant-derived oil would work to improve the bioavailability of CBD, MCT oil, which is most often a blend of palm kernel oil and coconut oil, is shown to be the best oil for product absorption. BNB Supplements uses MCT oil, a product that may also be beneficial for reducing inflammation and cholesterol levels.2

  • Gelatin

    Softgels are most often made with gelatin, a commonly used food additive that provides durability and flexibility. Gelatin is considered harmless, easy to digest, and usually dissolves within minutes of reaching your stomach. That means the contents of your softgels are released quickly.3

Five Benefits of Getting Your CBD from Softgels

When selecting a CBD product, it’s important to find the right fit for your lifestyle. Many people don’t want to carry a glass bottle of CBD while they travel or explain what they are doing while counting drops. If using a tincture seems a bit labor-intensive for your personal preference, you may want to consider the following benefits of getting your CBD from softgels:

  • Tasteless and Odorless

    Softgels are one of the few ways to consume CBD without having to worry about the flavor or odor. This makes softgels a reasonable alternative to those looking for full-spectrum CBD who don’t particularly care for the somewhat earthy or grassy flavor of a full-spectrum tincture. Since the CBD oil is safely contained in a gelatin coating, you won’t even taste it.

  • A Precise Serving

    Using a CBD tincture requires a bit of measuring to get your preferred serving size. Measuring an accurate serving requires knowing how many milligrams of CBD are in each milliliter of tincture or breaking down the CBD content by the drop. Since softgels contain a precise amount of CBD in each capsule, you know your CBD serving size is exact every time.

  • Portability

    CBD softgels are easy to take on the go. You won’t need to worry about the practicality of carrying a cumbersome bottle or worry about spilling the contents as you measure. CBD softgels are easy to slip into a pill or vitamin case and can be taken discreetly whenever you like. This makes CBD softgels ideal for busy people who are frequently on the move.

  • Easy to Consume

    When you select CBD softgels, your CBD is always easy to consume. There is no need to shake your bottle, count your drops, or experience a lingering flavor. Since softgels are smooth and easy to swallow, taking your CBD with a beverage is optional. Your CBD is ready whenever you are.

  • Easily Absorbed

    Since gelatin breaks down quickly upon entering your body, the effects of CBD can be felt more quickly. While it can take an hour or two to notice the full effects, the potential benefits can last up to 8 hours.

Factors to Consider When Purchasing CBD Softgels

Since the CBD market is rife with poor-quality hemp-derived products, it’s important to know how to differentiate the good from the potentially bad. Before finalizing your selection, consider the answers to the following questions:

  • Is the CBD Lab-Tested?

    Hemp is known for its ability to leach toxins from the soil. Any contaminants in the soil can make their way into your products. That’s why the most reputable companies rely on laboratory testing to be certain their products are safe for consumption. Untested products could contain pesticides, heavy metals, fungus, salmonella, E Coli, or residue from unsafe extraction methods.

  • What is the CBD Concentration?

    The softgels you select should clearly state the amount of CBD they contain in milligrams (mg). You will want to verify that the concentration of CBD per softgel meets your needs. If the concentration is too low, you will need to take multiple capsules per dose. If the level of CBD is too high, you will be taking more CBD than your body needs. While neither scenario is harmful, the wrong concentration could significantly increase your cost.
