What are the side effects of taking CBD?
Side effects of taking CBD oil are minimal if any. CBD is considered to be a very safe substance to take. Our body has an endocannabinoid system that produces its own cannabinoids, thus making CBD, a phytocannabinoid, very easy for our bodies to absorb and utilize.
There are many studies that show that long-time use and high doses of CBD are well tolerated by humans. www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5569602/#B1
While there is no denying the amazing health benefits from taking CBD, there are, however, a few areas where one should be cautious and aware of when taking CBD because of its potential side effects.
First and foremost, make sure that you are getting your CBD from a reliable source and there is no THC in it. THC is the psychoactive cannabinoid and even though it does have its own health benefits, it also can have many side effects if not taken with caution. Icaria’s CBD oils contain 0.00% THC. www.icaria.co
2. Pregnancy and breastfeeding
There are relatively very few studies and records of taking CBD while pregnant and breastfeeding. In my opinion, it’s best to be cautious about taking CBD during pregnancy or breastfeeding, especially if you haven’t tried it before.
3. Liver Metabolism
There are studies that have shown that CBD can inhibit the activity of some liver enzymes called cytochrome P450 which metabolize a lot of pharmaceutical drugs. If you are taking pharmaceutical drugs and want to take CBD, you should consult with your doctor and/or pharmacist.
