It is always prudent with all over-the-counter health, beauty or medicinal products to educate yourself to any potential side effects that may occur. This is especially true when it comes to CBD products simply because there are so many different forms including creams, salves, gel capsules, edibles, tinctures, drops, even vape juices and cartridges. And the last thing you should do is put something in your body that you don’t have all the facts on. Dr. Jennifer Kovacs has made it her mission to provide her clients with the highest quality CBD products on the market today, along with educating them on the right CBD product for their lifestyle.
CBD is harvested from the hemp plant which is related to the marijuana plant but doesn’t contain the components that cause the “high” one gets from marijuana. In fact the World Health Organization has stated, “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential…To date, there is no evidence of public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.” But that doesn’t necessarily mean CBD products are completely side effect free. Please keep in mind while clinical studies have shown more than 70% of all people polled reported no adverse reactions, the list below doesn’t contain all possible side effects.
Potential CBD Side Effects:
- One of the most common complaints is dry mouth.
- Changes in appetite.
- Depending on the CBD product, some people may experience drowsiness and fatigue.
- Gastrointestinal problems including nausea and diarrhea.
- There have also been some concerns about CBD products, which are considered not a medication but a supplement, may adversely interact with certain prescription and over-the-counter medications. This is why it is strongly recommended you discuss in detail, not only CBD products, but any other supplements you may be considering.
In using certain CBD products with prescribed dosages, studies have indicated many of the side effects will diminish or completely subside after the recommended dosages have been reached. If the side effects continue, reducing the amount taken will often decrease or lessen the reactions.
Also, it is worth noting that since there are no FDA regulations when it comes to purity or safety in CBD products, it is definitely in your best interest to only purchase your products from a trusted source.
