Veggie caps – if these terms don’t ring a bell, you may be missing out on a lot of current knowledge about health and wellbeing these days. Aside from convenience, these dietary supplements have been making waves in the industry because of the many wonderful benefits they bring to the body.
So, what are veggie caps? Do veggie caps work? And in all honesty, are veggie caps healthy? Here, we will dissect all the things that you have to know about veggie caps, particularly the CBGa/CBDa Acidic Cannabinoid Complex Formula introduced by Complete Hemp.
What are Veggie Caps?
Dietary supplements are frequently used in the United States to provide the body with essential nutrients.1 Aside from vitamins and minerals, the chemical compound found in the Cannabis Sativa plant, Cannabidiol, has been identified to bring potential therapeutic benefits2 because of its interaction with the endocannabinoid system – which has been associated to manifest effects on those with dermatological disorders and other various pathologies.3
Currently, one of the most practical ways of delivering CBD into the body is through liquid capsules. These edible liquid capsules easily break down in the digestive tract, allowing the body to fully absorb their organic contents. From the name itself, veggie caps use alternative ingredients to gelatin to encapsulate the liquid content of the capsule. Instead of gelatin, veggie caps manufactured by conscious brands like Complete Hemp utilize plant-based ingredients like pectin—obtained from apples4 —that are easy to swallow, odorless, and tasteless.
CBD vs CBGa and CBDa: Explained
Note that there are more than 100 cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. While CBD-infused products are dominating the market, the truth is that this chemical compound is actually derived from its precursors: cannabidiolic acid (CBDa) and cannabigerolic acid (CBGa). Secreted from the stems, leaves, and flowers of the cannabis plant, when processed with heat, the acid is then removed, thereby activating CBD.
Initially, it was thought that these acidic forms of cannabinoids lacked pharmacological potency. Modern science has now refuted this notion after discovering that CBGa and CBDa have interesting biological and therapeutic potential.
Are Veggie Caps Healthy?
Complete Hemp’s Extra Strength Acidic Cannabinoid Complex Formula serves 25mg of CBGa and 25mg of CBDa per capsule. This non-decarboxylated acidic cannabinoid complex formulation was created especially to preserve the naturally occurring compounds present in the organically grown hemp plants. Simply put, these veggie caps provide full-spectrum hemp extract in its raw form. To do this, we made sure that the acidic cannabinoids were not exposed to any heat to preserve their natural form.
These veggie caps are made from hemp extracts that are organically grown within the US. In order to maximize the nutritional synergy of these veggie caps, the formulation is blended with cold-pressed organic hemp oil from hemp seeds – which are known to possess excellent nutritional value as it is rich in essential fatty acids, protein, vitamins, and minerals.5
