Are There Side Effects from CBD Oil?

As many of you know, CBD is a natural compound that is found in the Cannabis plant. Many people who use CBD oil to get relief from such things as pain, seizures, anxiety and nausea, just to name a few. One of the main benefits of CBD oil is that it does not get you “high” because CBD only contains 0.3% or lower THC, the active ingredient most associated with cannabis.

Moreover, CBD, also referred to as Cannabidiol, is one of the most studied active cannabinoids that is found in the Cannabis sativa plant.  If you are looking for a safe, effective and natural treatment option, then CBD oil might be right for you.

Are There Any Side Effects from CBD Oil?

CBD works because it interacts with your body in very profound and specific ways.  While many people believe any natural medicines are 100% safe and don’t have any side effects, the truth is even natural medications could have certain side effects, and those side effects could vary a bit from person to person.  Here are some possible side effects to consider.

1. Drowsiness, Feeling Tired or Sleepy

If you choose to take CBD oil for any reason other than insomnia, you may experience drowsiness, especially if you take a high dosage. The reason for this is that everyone reacts to CBD oil differently. In many people, CBD makes them feel more energetic and alert. In others, the opposite is true, and they feel tired or sleepy. 

If you experience drowsiness with CBD oil, don’t operate any machinery or drive. Additionally, you can reduce the dosage of CBD oil to assist you in feeling less drowsy, or, in the alternative, you can try one of our products that has a different cannabinoid profile. 

2. Mouth Dryness 

Noticing that you have a dry mouth is another possible side effect you may experience when using CBD oil. The reason some users have dry mouth is because of the way in which the CBD is interacting with your endocannabinoids system, which have receptors in your salivary glands that inhibit secretion of your salvia. 

If you experience dry mouth when you use CBD oil, the easiest thing to do is drink some water, herb tea, or other type of hydrating liquid.  Additionally, if you vape CBD, then you may want to try a different type of CBD product such as a water-soluble product. 

3. Lightheadedness or Feeling Dizzy

Some users have experienced feeling lightheaded or slightly dizzy after using CBD oil. This is because there is some evidence that suggests that CBD oil can lower your blood pressure which can be useful if you are suffering from heart disease or high blood pressure.  However, if you have a normal blood pressure, these changes can lead you to feel dizzy or lightheaded. 

As a precaution, if you have low blood pressure or are taking high blood pressure medicine, you should consult with your doctor before using CBD oil. If you have a normal blood pressure but experience lightheadedness when you use CBD oil, you can drink a cup of coffee or switch to a slow-release CBD product. 

4. Change in Weight or Appetite

If you have been using CBD oil for a prolonged time period, it is possible to experience a change in appetite or weight.  Some studies suggest that CBD oil has the potential to regulate your glucose levels. While this may be good news for people who suffer from insulin resistance disorder or diabetes, if you don’t have these types of issues, your appetite my alter during the day.

To experience this side effect, you can take a lower dosage of CBD oil or try a slow-release CBD product such as a gel cap. You can also change to a different CBD product that has a different cannabinoid profile. 

5. Digestive Changes 

One of the most common side effects of CBD oil is a change in their digestive system. If you experience changes to your digestive system, like diarrhea, when you take CBD oil, try reducing your dosage.  You should also have a chat with your doctor to make sure you’re not suffering from dehydration or any other cause of your digestive issues. 

In sum, the marvelous benefits of CBD normally outweigh any side effects.  However, you should keep a watchful eye out for any changes in your system when using CBD oil, and always be careful in your dosage to make sure that you minimize any side effects as much as possible.  Also, we recommend that you always consult with your own physician before and during your use of CBD oil or other products, just to make sure you are doing what is best for your body and mind.
