If you’re new to CBD and starting your own version of a CBD therapy regime, you’ll wonder how you’re going to feel and be affected.
As the North American CBD Market makes waves with online sales, many people are simply buying the products without much education, only hearsay from friends, family, and co-workers. Here’s what to look out for to stay safe and healthy.
As always, it’s good practice to be in touch with a physician before working out in any capacity. Additionally, when using CBD you should understand dosage and understand warning signs. If you feel dizzy or nauseous one should cease activity at once and consult a doctor.
Now that we have that out of the way, let us talk about safety, benefits and side effects of CBD.
CBD is quickly becoming a staple of many peoples supplement regimens.
It’s thought that CBD might affect your health by attaching to receptors in the body’s endocannabinoid system. This complex biological process is greatly involved in maintaining certain aspects of your health.
Emerging research shows that endocannabinoids may play a role in regulating memory, sleep, and mood, as well as metabolic processes like energy balance involved in digestion, and blood sugar regulation.
Proponents of CBD oil claim that it can treat a wide variety of health issues, ranging from everyday ailments to chronic medical conditions. These issues include:
In fact, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Epidiolex (a drug made with a purified form of CBD oil) in June 2018 for the treatment of seizures associated with two rare and severe forms of epilepsy in patients 2 years of age and older.
More recently, CBD shows promise in the treatment of a variety of issues that people face on a daily basis. It’s time that many feel the relief that they were supposed to.
So what about those just casually taking CBD? Are there concerns we should have?
Possible Side Effects
Some research indicates that the use of CBD oil may trigger a number of side effects, including:
CBD oil may interact with several medications, including some types of anti-epileptic drugs.
A report from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) published in the journal Pediatrics cautions pregnant women and nursing mothers to avoid marijuana use due to possible adverse developmental effects on their baby. In a study reviewed for the report, short-term exposure to CBD was found to increase the permeability of the placental barrier, potentially placing the fetus at risk from certain substances.
If you're considering trying CBD oil, it's important to discuss potential side effects and adverse reactions with your physician. In one study, for instance, children with refractory epilepsy treated with CBD experienced an aggravation of seizures, sleepiness, digestive disturbances, and irritability.
With that being said, a good rule of thumb to determine your proper CBD dosage is to take 1–6MG of CBD for every 10 pounds of body weight based on the individual's level of pain. For example, 20MG-33MG would be a great starting dosage for a 200 lb patient, while 15MG-25MG would be best for another who weighs 150 lb
CBD oils may contain some THC.
Understand the product and the provider you’re buying it from. Cannabis may impair your ability to drive safely or operate equipment and may have short- and long-term effects on your memory, attention, mood, heart rate, and mental health. It is also easy to over-consume CBD oil, so it's important to start with a low dose, as it may take several hours or longer to begin to feel the effects after consumption.
If you’re thinking of using CBD oil to treat a health problem (and it is legal where you live), make sure to consult your healthcare provider first to discuss whether it's appropriate for you.
Because CBD oil products are mostly unregulated, there’s no guarantee that any given product contains a safe or effective level of CBD.
In fact, a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 2017 found that nearly 70 percent of all CBD products sold online are incorrectly labeled, and could cause serious harm to consumers. Use CBD oils that you trust.
Hopefully, this post has put your mind at ease or your buying habits on guard.
Research and make sure you’re using the appropriate amount when dosing. Stay safe out there.
