Potential Side Effects

Natural and convenient nk9d’s CBD oral drops let you incorporate CBD into your daily life effortlessly for maximum wellbeing. Made from the purest, broad-spectrum CBD extracted from hemp grown in Colorado, USA, (where, under state and federal law, the CDA (Colorado Department of Agriculture) must test all hemp plants for their THC content) ensuring our CBD Oil is rich in active cannabidiol (CBD) and the other beneficial cannabinoids, terpenes and fatty acids.

CBD has seen extraordinary success in the wellness industry in recent years, but as beneficial as it has been reported to be, are there any drawbacks to using it?

First off, it should be noted that CBD has been found to be safe for human consumption and unlike THC, CBD is non-psychoactive and its side effects are minimal. Any side effects of CBD are extremely uncommon and many users claim to experience no side effects at all. Even in high doses, CBD is considered non-toxic for humans.

The quality of the CBD plays a large role in whether people experience adverse side effects. Broad spectrum CBD is extracted from well-cultivated hemp plants using high-quality processes and therefore tends to be more effective and less likely to cause any unwanted side effects.

However, there are some side effects that are worth pointing out, though they are minor and very uncommon.

A dry sensation in the mouth is a common side effect of consuming CBD and other cannabinoids. This is mainly caused by anandamide, an endocannabinoid which blocks signals from the nervous system to produce saliva, leading to a dry mouth. Dry mouth can be avoided by ingesting CBD via oral drops or topical creams rather than vaping.

High doses of CBD oil may cause a slight drop in blood pressure, which can lead to feelings of dizziness and light-headedness. Lowering blood pressure can be useful in those who are at risk of heart disease and diabetes due to high blood pressure, but it may be a minor issue for those with normal blood pressure. However, this side effect does not last long and can be quickly resolved by drinking a caffeinated drink.

CBD may in some cases when taken in high quantities cause drowsiness, people who experience this should avoid driving or operating heavy machinery. However, CBD does not typically induce feelings of drowsiness and in most cases is actually more likely to cause a state of wakefulness and increased energy. If you find CBD makes you feel drowsy, try reducing the dosage.

It is good practice to consult with your doctor before taking CBD as there is a small chance that CBD may interfere with pharmaceutical medication.

Although there are potential side effects associated with CBD, these effects are generally not hazardous and are largely uncommon.
