Side Effects of CBD: What We Know and What We're Still Learning

CBD has been increasingly popular due to its many health benefits for athletes, dogs, the elderly, and those with health problems to name a few. Since CBD is a supplement rather than a medication, there is less regulation. So how do you know if CBD is safe to use or if the side effects of CBD outweigh the benefits? With CBD being legal and sold all over the united states, there is a lot that we do know about the safety of cannabidiol. Here's what we know so far and what we're still learning about the negative effects of CBD.

Is CBD Safe?

In order to practice taking CBD safely, it is important to let your doctor know if you are regularly taking CBD with other medications. Cannabidiol can increase the level of blood thinning and other medications in your body by competing for the liver enzymes that break down these drugs. Some people who are taking high doses of CBD show abnormalities in liver-related blood tests. Many non-prescription drugs such as Tylenol have this same effect. Using CBD along with other drugs (including alcohol), can slow brain function and potentially lead to injuries. Damage to fertility in males as well as damage to fertility in male offspring where females have been exposed has been reported in studies of animals that were exposed to CBD.

Potential Noticeable Side Effects

CBD can possibly cause side effects such as changes in mood, changes in alertness, and gastrointestinal distress. Although CBD oil is often used to treat anxiety, in some cases it can cause anxiety as well as dizziness and dry mouth. Do not drive or operate heavy machinery when taking CBD, especially when you first start using it. Some CBD can contain very small amounts of THC, which have its own set of potential side effects.
