Deb, pills are typically packed in 'something' such as calcium and sundry items not associated w/ the actual drug. Usually, the cheaper the item, the more weird the packing. One will get the effects of the CBD for sure, but any thing else in there will also bite ya! So, wherever you can get the real thing, in purer pill form or paste or edible or oil or best as there are so many 'healthier' forms of ingestion. Best to ya!
