CBD is used to help with common conditions and ailments that include anxiety, panic attacks, depression, insomnia, disturbed sleep patterns, chronic pain, inflammations, nausea, seizures, neurological issues, and digestive problems.

When it comes to alternative treatments, safety and side effects, are extremely important to those who want to try it for the first time. Especially since there is limited research of these products, and a complete lack of oversight or regulation, you need to know what to do in case of an allergic reaction, or what to look out for when starting CBD regiment.

Although in general CBD is very safe for use in humans and animals, always use caution when starting CBD or another new supplement. If you experience any allergic reactions, or other negative effects, discontinue using right away. Don’t risk your health or comfort and reevaluate your CBD regiment.

What Are The Side Effects of CBD Products?

Here is a list of possible side effects that have been reported when first starting use of CBD products. Note that many of these side effects go away after just few days of continuous use, and overall do not affect your general well being.

  • Drowsiness, Feeling Light-Headed, Dizziness
  • Low Blood Pressure
  • General Changes in Appetite / Eating Habits
  • Mood Change
  • Diarrhea
  • Dry Mouth
  • Nausea / Abdominal Discomfort
  • Vomiting

CBD products you use can also contain trace amounts of THC. Most CBD extracted from hemp will have a maximum of 0.03% of THC.  If you’re allergic to THC, you may experience different or additional symptoms, like nasal discomfort and congestion, red or watery eyes, and itchy skin. Those three symptoms are a sign of allergic reaction to THC. You may want to consider using a Broad Spectrum or Isolate CBD products instead of Full Spectrum.

What Should You Do if Side Effects Occur?

Most side effects of CBD are very mild, and most decrease with continuous use. You should discontinue the use of these products as soon as you notice any adverse reactions. If you are experiencing heightened symptoms or other problematic reactions, contact a healthcare professional without a delay. You should always talk to your doctor before starting any new regiments, especially if you take prescription medication. Learn how CBD could possibly interact with your current medicines and treatments. This applies to all and any CBD products including gummies, vape products, tinctures, and even topical creams & ointments.

As with any adverse or allergic reaction, be sure to check the ingredients list to make sure this reaction is not caused by other factors. We are all different, and your body might be more accepting of CBD in a different form, or without certain additives.
