Capsules may not be the most glamorous way to reinvigorate your body and accomplish some modicum of homeostasis for the day, but you cannot say that capsules are not a convenient way to get your fix of anything; whether it be something as commonplace as Vitamin D3 or something more complex like CBD. Particularly in the case of CBD, which is oil-based. You are getting a delivery system more direct than gummies, if not as quick as sublingual CBD oil.

CBDistillery full-spectrum capsules are the subject of today’s versus blog against PureKana’s CBD oil capsules. A liquid cap of CBD can carry as much as 40 mg of CBD between the two brands, a significant amount considering even PureKana’s highest recommended serving of its most potent tincture is barely double that, at 83.3 mg. PureKana CBD capsules are available in a few different varieties, as are CBDistillery capsules; we will compare and contrast their respective CBD oil pills below. Read on after the jump.

Our Take 

The capsules you will find within both of these brands are not massive horse pills but smooth, easy-to-swallow gel-like capsules with potent amounts of CBD. Both brands made these capsules as powerful as possible, not going anywhere below 25 mg for each dose, and keeping the serving to a simple 1-capsule dose. 

So how do they match up? It turns out that they each give each other a run for their money. Ingredient quality in both is solid, as neither relies on fillers or preservatives to help their capsules keep fresh. Instead, both use MCT oil and simple gelatin and glycerin.

Strength and concentration do not vary with CBDistillery and vary slightly with PureKana. With CBDistillery keeping their dose at a reasonable 30 mg while PureKana goes between 25 mg and 40 mg. Servings and supply are a PureKana weak spot, as it is the only CBDistillery that includes a 60 count option (PureKana only has 30 count options for both of its strengths).

Value also gets CBDistillery some points by including a 60 mg version of its 30 mg capsules priced at $130.00, enhancing value, while PureKana stays at $83.00 for only a month’s supply of its 25 mg. 

The product range is a wash between the two brands. They both include vital spinoff versions, including sleep and immunity for PureKana and broad-spectrum and kava/mushroom for CBDistillery.

Our take? We give a slight edge to CBDistillery for more clarity of price and innovation with spinoff editions, though PureKana is worth its salt.
