New Year: 2022’s Top 5 CBD Softgel Brands

As the year begins winding down, many of us have our sites on the new year ahead. Some of us may already be thinking about the dreaded new year’s resolution. But in today’s world, the traditional resolution is stale. Lose weight? Work more? Be more organized? Meh.

While most resolutions are at best difficult to attain, and at worst damaging to our mental image, resolving to create healthy habits (without judgement), is always a winner, no matter the time of year. That’s where CBD softgels come in. Taking CBD is a simple way to build a healthy habit that doesn’t become negative or cumbersome.

Why CBD Softgels?

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is the new darling of the health and wellness market. It’s one of over a hundred plant compounds called cannabinoids (THC is another) found in cannabis or hemp. Like THC, it offers a plethora of potential health benefits. Unlike THC, it has no psychoactive properties – it won’t get you high.

Science is currently struggling to catch up with the hype, but research is being conducted across a variety of categories due to the promise of preliminary studies and anecdotal evidence. Some potential benefits that are being further explored include:

Many people with chronic illness and athletes take CBD for its pain relieving effects. With a good safety profile, it’s an excellent alternative to the highly addictive and sometimes dangerous prescription drugs available.

Softgels are a popular way to get a dose of CBD, as the pure hemp extract is generally combined with nothing more than MCT oil and packed into small, easy to swallow capsules. Some people don’t love the taste of CBD, even with flavoring, so softgels are a great alternative to tinctures.

Choosing a Great CBD Company

Something you need to be careful of when starting a CBD regimen is to find a quality source. CBD is not regulated by the FDA, and its popularity means that there are a lot of products on the market that aren’t pure, or don’t even have CBD in them at all.

Be sure that when you buy CBD you buy it from a well-known company with a name in the industry. Find out what third-party publications are saying about the business, and look for ones that are part of professional organizations and that have won industry awards.

And under no circumstances should you buy from a company that doesn’t offer independent third party test results for their products. This is the only way to be sure that the product is both the advertised potency, and free from contaminants.

To make life a bit easier and eliminate some of the research, we’ve created a list of softgels from our top 5 CBD brands of 2022.

#1 Joy Organics Premium CBD Softgels

Joy Organics is a family run company that has been an industry leader since 2011. They have a reputation for transparency, offering full third party reports on each of their products (which can be found right on the product page).

Their 10 mg and 25 mg CBD softgels are made only from pure CBD, extracted from organic hemp, MCT oil, natural emulsifiers, and beta caryophyllene, packed into a gelatine capsule. You can choose either 10 mg or 25 mg potency per capsule, making dosing easy no matter what your body needs.

Joy Organics also offers a 30% discount for repeat purchase (you can choose a subscription for every 2, 4, 6, 8, or 12 weeks). They also offer a full money back guarantee.

#2 Lazarus Naturals CBD Softgels

Another company with a solid reputation, Lazarus Naturals offers CBD extracted from organic Oregon hemp. Their softgels are very convenient for dosing, as they come in a wide variety of potencies: from 25 mg to 250 mg per capsule. This makes them a good choice for those who require larger doses (larger bodies, those who have used CBD for a while, or those using it for specific chronic illnesses).

They also offer third party testing for potency and purity and a money-back guarantee. They do not offer subscription discounts, but they do have a generous assistance program for qualified individuals: those with disabilities, active service military and vets, and low-income folks.

#3 American Shaman CBD Softgels

American Shaman offers a softgel dose that settles into a middle of the road dose: 15 mg per capsule in a 30 or 60 capsule bottle. This is enough to provide a “moderate” dose for most users with one or two capsules.

Their products are stringently tested by a third party lab, and they offer the results directly on the website. They also source their CBD from organic domestic hemp for best quality. Like the previous company, they offer an assistance program to qualified applicants – they believe in accessibility for all.

#4 cbdMD CBD Softgels

cbdMD offers an option for those who are extremely THC averse, or who require frequent drug testing for work. Their softgels contain CBD isolate, an extremely processed version that filters out all beneficial plant compounds (terpenes, cannabinoids, and fatty acids). While no CBD on the market will have more than 0.03% THC by law, taken in large amounts it can allow for a false positive on a test for THC.

Their capsules come in both 15 mg and 25 mg strength, and use domestic hemp. They also offer third party tests for potency and purity.

#5 Kanibi Full Spectrum CBD Softgels

Kanibi is a newer brand compared to some of the others on our list, but it is already gaining recognition in the industry. Their softgels are made from CBD extracted from organically grown hemp, and MCT oil. Nothing else. Each capsule contains 25 mg of high-potency full spectrum CBD, and is double tested for purity and potency.

While they offer no discounts, they do have free shipping for orders over $100. They also back their product with a 100% money back guarantee.
