What's the difference between PureKana CBD Capsules and PureKana Oils?
Considering the fact that many prefer our CBD capsules out of sheer convenience, you might be wondering why we don't just sell them exclusively instead of offering a range of oils, topicals and edibles.
Well, one of the key differences between CBD oils and CBD capsules is the mode in which they're broken down by the body. CBD oils offer slightly more potency and longer-lasting effects, given that they're taken under the tongue and are absorbed directly into the bloodstream via tiny sublingual capillary beds.
Because of this, oil drops are not subject to metabolic breakdown, and therefore more of the active CBD is available to reach the target destination and provide its therapeutic effects.
When you buy 25mg CBD capsules, on the other hand, you are obviously swallowing them like you would a normal pill, and thus they are subject to normal metabolic breakdown in the digestive system.
This means that while they offer a slight advantage in terms of convenience and more precise dosing, they have a marginally lower bioavailability compared to our CBD oils (bioavailability refers to the amount of CBD that is available for use by the body compared to the actual amount that you take).

Living with arthritis is no joke and it can be incredibly hard to stay mobile. I have been impressed with this CBD and it has made it much less painful to move my joints.

These are such a handy product to keep stocked in a cupboard at home. Whenever my back is feeling particularly achey I always take one and its not long before the pain subsides!

First of all I want to say that purekana make a great product. I've used their oils, capsules and recently been purchasing their gummies. The oils are extremely effective, but I prefer the capsules. Simply can't stand the fuss with the dropper.

I’m really enjoying the 25mg capsules, I feel the effect much quicker than others I have tried but I would suggest keeping them somewhere cool so they don’t melt.

I keep my oil at home and my capsules in my purse – and they work just as effectively.

If you’re looking for something to just relax you after a stressful day, these tablets work great. So happy I tried them.

These are great! So easy to carry them around with you during the day and they work surprisingly fast.

I’m really pleased with how relaxed I felt after taking one of these capsules – going to keep a bottle in my office draw from now on!

These are great! So easy to pop them in your bag for the day. Anyone with anxiety knows it can be so unpredictable but with these on me I never worry anymore.
December 23, 2018
I really don’t like the taste of many CBD oils but now I don’t have to worry about that as these tablets are so easy to take. I would suggest them to anyone who struggles with the oil.

These pills are such an easy way to take CBD, I could never go back to oil!

My husband is on Methotrexate for crippling Rheumatoid Arthritis. We have been slowly increasing dosage via CBD capsules and decreasing the Methotrexate dosage. So far, no debilitating attacks and no flares of any kind.

Have been using these capsules for a few days now and it’s hard to tell whether they have helped my anxiety yet, but I do think that overall I feel calmer!

I was in pain for over a year. After PT, chiro care, Accupuncture, Massage therapy and a cortisone injection, I still had no relief. Two days after taking these CBD capsules I was pain free. Truly miraculous.
November 21, 2018
These capsules are so wonderful. I am so grateful to find this product and will continue to use it for the rest of my life. I am a 64-year-old woman – in excellent health. Give it a try you have nothing to lose but annoying problems!

My son has epilepsy & has been taking the capsules for only two weeks. He has noticed an overall improvement - sleeping better, less hand tremors, appetite has increased & not as weary during the day(caused by side affects of epilepsy drugs). Would definitely recommend.

The best medication for migraines are these capsules. I often get migraines - I have a stressful job and as soon as tensions rise I feel the headaches kick in. I take a capsule as soon as I feel one coming on and I have relief almost instantly.
October 30, 2018
Great delivery and this product is a must have for anyone who wants to relax and be pain free at times. Very impressed will be ordering more real soon.

My husband has been using these capsules which has helped a great deal with his back pain. He’s also sleeping a lot better at night now - probably because he isn’t in so much pain.

I had dental work done a few weeks ago and the pain in my jaw has been excruciating. I have started using the capsules and the pain goes away almost immediately. I also have had some upper back and knee pain which the capsules also help with. I take one in the morning and one in the evening.

Just received my 25 mg capsules. I am very happy with the way they worked. Took 2 capsules & worked very well for sleep and minor pain problems so far.

Although a little pricey, the capsules are worth every single penny. I have severe back problems that go into spasm and when my medication doesn’t work I use these. I hope to someday be completely off prescription medication and only on CBD.

As a sufferer from GAD, I have been trying to get away from prescribed Xanax taken daily. When I first used these CBD capsules I found that I could lower my Xanax from daily use to weekly, then bi-monthly. Now I use my Xanax for emergency episodes only. The capsules have helped significantly with my Anxiety as well as the tingling and pins and needles feelings that I get as a side effect from my Beta-blocker prescription. I would recommend this to anyone suffering from anxiety.

Sharing some positive information. My daughter has had surgery on one of her thumbs due to arthritis. She has been getting cortisone shots in the other. I sent her some of the Purekana CBD capsules to try. She finally gave it a try and then called me later to let me know that the pain had reduced a lot. Before that she was sobbing with pain. Nothing has helped her as much as this product.

I suffer from anxiety and migraines and started using CBD products when I wanted to focus on natural pain relief and not feel the side effects from narcotic based medications. I tried a number of different CBD brands and didn’t like the feeling they gave mostly floating or even harsher headaches. I tried Purekana CBD capsules as suggested by a friend and have been loyal for about 6 months now. It’s the first brand where it actually helped with relief of my headaches and anxiety.

I switched from the oils to the capsules. Great stuff. I take CBD daily for neck pain, backache, and headaches.

Purekana is a great company to deal with. Had some of the soft gels get a little gooey during shipping and they immediately sent out a brand new bottle, everything perfect :)

Excellent product, would recommend to anyone. Either the pureKana pills or the CBD oils - have used both. Oils are a little more longer lasting

Have been skeptical about the potency of "legal" CBD (Georgia doesn't have a medical program) but it's nice to know there are brands like Purekana that you can trust to actually make a reliable and effect product

I speak from experience that purekana is one of the better CBD brands on the market. First time using the capsules, definitely recommended. Fast acting and worked well taken as needed for my anxiety

Seem to take a little longer to take effect than the cbd oils but still prefer the capsules for convenience

Love Purekana, have been using for the capsules and gummies almost 7 months now. Was prescribed xanax last year for chronic anxiety but have only ever taken them twice

Was using the Purekana oil at first but was finding it hard to hold under my tongue. The pills seem to take a little longer to kick in but overall seem to work about the same

Have used before and will use again. First time using the capsules, am undecided as of yet if I will stick with them or go back to the oil drops :)

I tried the 750mg capsules for over a week. I started out one capsule at night the first night. Nothing. By day 7 I had tried six capsules within two hours. Still nothing. I slept better with Benadryl and Melatonin than this. I still woke with crippling pain in my joints (fingers, shoulder, and elbow). I wear
Hoping for some sort of response since I cannot take NSAIDS and Tylenol is no better than a Tic Tac. Chalk the CBD oil up as another Tic Tac. A very expensive one.

I have fibromyalgia, and that truly is a pain in the everything, along with many other symptoms. These capsules help, not only with managing pain levels, but also helping with real sleep, IBS-D and C as well. Maybe because these major symptoms are better controlled, my general attitude isn't as depressed. I'm just glad to have found something besides my pharmaceuticals that adds to my quality of life. Thank you.

I love my capsules because I can just take them with my daily vitamins and I get my dose of CBD for the day! Highly recommend for anyone who wants to try a simple method of getting their CBD.
