Softgels are water soluble making it more digestible to the human body. The human body will absorb the entire 10 mg these CBD softgels have to offer. Whereas, tincture is absorbed through the sublingual gland and anything swallowed will decrease absorption. However, if more than 10mg is needed we recommend you try the tincture as it will last longer. Also, if you want a dosage that is different from let say 10mg, 20mg, 30mg, 40mg, 50mg, or 60mg you are better off using the tincture. This is to say, you will be best to use tincture when demanding 13mg, 25mg, or 33mg dosages.
