Navigating the Difference Between Immediate and Extended Release CBD Tablets

So you have narrowed down your CBD preferences to tablet form. Now what? You might find yourself wondering what the difference is between immediate and extended release. Luckily, you’ve come to the right place because we’re breaking down the differences, benefits, and best fit for you.

Immediate vs. Extended

“Immediate” and “extended” describe the type of delivery. In this case, we are exploring how CBD enters the body and how long it stays. Immediate release entails quick delivery of CBD into the system, while extended-release allows for CBD to be released over an extended period of time. While one is not clinically better than the other, they have their differences. If you are interested in trying CBD tablets, it would be valuable to consider the pros and cons of each.

Pros and Cons

Immediate release CBD tablets start working within minutes of ingestion. The advantages of immediate release formulations are that they provide convenience and are cost-effective being that they are packed with CBD. Your body will begin to absorb the CBD immediately. Another dose will be needed when the desired effect wears off.

Extended-release CBD tablets have advantages because they require less frequent dosing. Though the effects may take longer to achieve, they are able to maintain a consistent level of CBD in your system. The downside is that they may cost more than its counterpart.
