CBD OIL SAFE?

The NCBI conducted a review on the ‘Safety and side effects of cannabidiol’  Their verdict was that controlled administration is entirely non-toxic and safe in both humans and animals with minimal side effects. They further argued that it does not affect physiological parameters like a person’s heart rate and body temperature.

The World Health Organization has also recognized CBD as being non-toxic, safe, and with little to no CBD hemp oil effects. So, why not have a play around in your kitchen and see if you can create a new and exciting new dish that’ll also promote health and wellbeing?

How long does CBD stay in your system?

Hemp-derived CBD is legal in all US states and most European countries – so there’s no need to worry whether you could pass a Cannabis drug test as the majority of urine drug screens don’t detect CBD anyway.

With that said, it’s thought that CBD stays in your system for two to five days (according to clinical studies performed on patients affected by Huntington’s disease). The time required for the molecule to effectively leave the human body depends on each person – as well as the quantity of CBD taken.

Side effects of CBD

However, it’s essential to be informed of the potential CBD effects before you incorporate it into your routine. While only minor, it’s also important to remember that CBD can affect everyone differently and what might happen for one person might not be the same for you.

So it’s important not to go too crazy when you first start taking CBD. Instead, start with a low dose and gradually build up. If you notice any side effects, simply lower the dose again.

Dry mouth

Although only a mild consequence that is likely to make you thirsty more than anything, mouth dryness, or ‘cotton-mouth’ is a potential side effect of hemp oil and CBD administration.

 A 2006 study suggests – cannabinoid receptors are present in the submandibular glands, which are responsible for producing saliva. When CBD gets involved with the endocannabinoid system’s process, saliva is unable to be made.

 

A small drop in blood pressure

When using CBD oil in higher doses, a slight reduction in blood pressure is one of the potential CBD hemp oil side effects. Usually, this happens within a few minutes as the CBD enters your system and is not permanent.

However, we recommend consulting your doctor before taking CBD if you are taking medication for blood pressure.

Light-headedness

Often caused by a drop in blood pressure when taking high doses. However, this effect is only temporary and resolved quickly by having tea or coffee.

Increased tremor in Parkinson’s disease (only with a high dose of CBD)

Early research around CBD initially suggested that those with Parkinson’s disease may experience worsened tremors and muscle movement when taking CBD in very high doses.

However, more recent studies have also claimed that cannabidiol is safe for use by patients with Parkinson’s disease. Either way, we recommend consulting with your doctor before taking CBD.  Begin by taking small doses. If this side effect occurs, reduce the amount to lessen the chance of this potential side effect.

 

Drowsiness

Information suggests that CBD is a wake-inducing agent. However, in higher doses, CBD can affect people differently and cause drowsiness. If you experience this side effect, do not drive or operate heavy machinery — and simply reduce the dose you’re taking.

While scientific studies and clinical trials are still taking place, evidence suggests that CBD can have positive health benefits on our body. These include:
