One would use Cannabis capsules in order to help the absorption of cannabinoids into the gastrointestinal tract (GIT).
Unlike sublingual oils, most of the absorption happens in the gut, where you need it to be absorbed if you have issues like IBS, a spastic colon etc. We also have to take into account that the cannabinoids will be metabolised through the liver and will have an effect on the pancreas as well.
Most of your CB2 receptors are situated in the GIT so communication between organs will be optimised. This communication is crucial when it comes to finding the balance in the body that is necessary to stay healthy.
The capsules offer you a stable measured dose instead of a milligram guestimation. Due to the fact that the cannabinoids (THC) will pass through your liver and will therefore be metabolized into 11-hydroxy-tetrahydrocannabinol, which will extend the effects of THC for an extended period of time and give you a psycho-active effect. This is necessary to treat many disorders, like anxiety, depression, sleep and OCD to name just a few.
If you are a first time user, depending on the strength your oil maker provides, it is advised to take your capsule and go straight to bed, so that if there is a psycho-active effect that is too strong, you will sleep through it…like a baby. Each person will experience their first capsule differently.
