You have been hearing a lot about CBD lately, and probably all the positives. However, CBD critics are opinionated otherwise. They do not fully support the use of CBD for medical purposes. Firstly, because many of the medical benefits which CBD claims are still in research stages. And secondly, because the proved benefits of CBD have not yet been tested on the children. This being said let us have a look at the side effects of CBD which no one wants to talk about.
CBD oil side effects can be grouped as under:
On The Basis Of High Dosage
As you know already, like any other prescribed medicine, CBD also comes with certain specific dosages according to the severity of the pain or disorder the patient is facing. When consumed in high dosages, the patients develop the following side effects:
- Gastrointestinal problems
- Reduced appetite
- Alteration in the liver enzymes
On The Basis Of Dishonest Products
With the constant increase in the demand for the product, many dishonest products have hit the market. A majority of such products contain pesticides, synthetic cannabinoids, a high percentage of THC or contaminants such as mold, rancidity, bacteria, etc. When such dishonest products are consumed, the individuals develop the following side effects:
- Dry mouth
- Altered mood
Under the given circumstances, the use of CBD has been approved by a few of the health organizations, WHO to be in particular. Like the saying goes “Better Safe Than Sorry”, let us also be cautious. Listed below are a few groups of individuals who must think twice before consuming CBD.
- If you are already on prescription drugs

Pharmaceutical drugs are processed differently in a human body and it is nothing similar to how it processes CBD. Therefore, taking CBD together with your prescription drug is dangerous. Also, all of the CBD clinical trials came back with the result which read CBD could potentially elevate the liver enzyme. Furthermore, your CBD intake could adversely affect the fertility rate or the baby. Additionally, cannabinoids are known to do their work by generally lowering blood pressure. It is advised to talk to your medical aid provider before you decide to include CBD to your wellness regime.
