Why would someone want to buy Jacob Hooy CBD capsules?

We're big fans of CBD oil, so it can sometimes seem strange to us why someone would want to buy any brand of CBD capsule. But actually they're really convenient, they're not messy and you don't have to taste anything, so we can understand why people might want to buy them. As for Jacob Hooy CBD capsules, it's likely that many of the people buying from Holland and Barrett like the idea of CBD oil, but don't want to taste anything. So this is likely why the Jacob Hooy CBD capsules have been so popular - they're more for CBD newcomers than experienced users. 

What do we think of the Jacob Hooy CBD capsules?

When reviewing CBD capsules, it can be quite tricky. You can't taste anything or see anything, so unless you're willing to cut the capsules open you sort of have to rely on your instincts.


What we'd say about the Jacob Hooy CBD capsules, first of all, is that they're affordable and at 10mg , 15mg or 20mg of CBD per capsule, they're also very convenient. If you're new to CBD and just looking for a consistent source of CBD to get started with, these are a good choice.


However we're not big fans of the capsules themselves - we prefer the chewier capsules made from modified food starch as we believe they can be digested more easily. The Jacob Hooy CBD capsules contain hemp seed oil, but we typically prefer capsules that contain MCT (which is better for improving absorption of the CBD)


So to conclude, these CBD capsules look good for beginners and a great affordable option. But if you're serious about CBD absorption, we'd recommend looking elsewhere.
