Okay, so here's the deal. I challenged my friend Linda who is always being negative about Hemp/Cannabis as medicine to write an article for me about the use of CBD and its many side effects. It is quite well written especially when you consider that english is not her first language. She is a very intelligent young woman and I think by the time she had completed the article she had began to realize just how safe CBD products really are.
Here is the complete untouched article.
What are the side effects of using CBD?
Cannabidiol, which is also known as CBD became extremely popular among people in the recent past. The amazing health benefits delivered by CBD contributed a lot towards its popularity. People have been provided with the opportunity to use CBD to experience a large number of health benefits against the conditions that they face.
Before you try out CBD, you will come across the need to figure out whether it can lead you towards any adverse health conditions or not as well. Below mentioned are some of the most prominent side effects that are linked with the usage of CBD. You are strongly encouraged to be aware of the side effects before you go ahead and consume CBD in any form.
Dry mouth is the most prominent side effect that is linked with the usage of CBD. From the recent studies, it has been identified that a lot of people who consume CBD experience dry mouth. However, this is not a major side effect associated with the usage of CBD and you don’t need to worry about anything.
CBD oil can make you feel excessive thirsty. This health condition is also known as cotton mouth. The scientists call this effect to be xerostomia. CBD oil can cause an impact on the nervous system of your body and lead you towards s dry mouth. This fact was verified from a research that was conducted back in 2006. From the same experiment, it was identified that CBD 1 and CBD 2 receptors can be found within the submandibular gland. The same gland is associated with saliva production as well. Around 60% of saliva is produced by these glands. When you consume CBD, the production of saliva within these glands is reduced. As a result, you will be led towards dry mouth.
You will be able to overcome this side effect by enjoying a fruit juice, wine or a beer. You need to keep in mind that it is temporary and you don’t have to worry about anything. Or else, it is also possible for you to consume water. In case if you want to restrict the usage of bathroom, you are encouraged to go ahead and enjoy a sugar free gum. Then you will be able to stimulate the saliva glands located inside your mouth to go ahead and produce more saliva. As a result, you will be provided with the chance to overcome the frustrating side effect that you experience.
Decreased blood pressure
Decreased blood pressure can also be considered as a major side effect that is linked with the consumption of CBD. However, it is important to keep in mind that reduced blood pressure will not be considered as a side effect for the patients who are dealing with hypertension. In fact, the ability of CBD to reduce blood pressure is being used to benefit the individuals who are dealing with the negative consequences of hypertension.
But for the average individuals, the consumption of CBD can cause a slight reduction in the blood pressure. As a result, you will have to experience the symptoms that are linked with low blood pressure as well.
As you already know, hypertension can simply be defined as a troublesome health condition. When you are affected with it, your heart would be subjected to additional stress. As a result, the chances of getting a stroke will increase as well. Therefore, people with hypertension will be asked to take medications to reduce their blood pressure levels. That’s where CBD comes into play.
Even if you use traditional medicine to overcome hypertension, CBD is in a position to increase their efficiency. But if you are an average person, you don’t need to worry about the blood pressure that is reduced through the consumption of CBD. It is not in a position to lead you towards any frustrating conditions and you will not have to worry about anything.
Drowsiness can also be considered as a symptom that is linked with CBD. It is important for you to keep in mind that CBD is not in a position to lead you towards psychoactive effects. Therefore, you will not have to feel high through the consumption of CBD. However, CBD can still lead you towards drowsiness. Therefore, it is important for you to be aware about the new health condition.
CBD can cause a wake inducing effect within your body. That’s the main reason why you will be subjected to drowsiness. However, the feeling of drowsiness is temporary and it will go away after a short period of time. But you need to be careful not to interact with any machinery when you feel the drowsiness. If you do, you will be taking a big risk. On the other hand, you shouldn’t think about driving as well.
Lightheadness is not a prominent side effect linked with the consumption of CBD. However, it is important for you to keep that in your mind as well. Then you will be able to make sure that you are not doing anything silly when you come across it. Lightheadness can take place among individuals because of the reduction in blood pressure. In such a situation, you just need to go ahead and enjoy a beverage that comes along with caffeine. Then you will be able to overcome the side effect in a convenient way.
As you can see, all the side effects that you will have to face after the consumption of CBD are temporary. Therefore, you don’t need to worry about anything before you enjoy CBD products and experience the positive results offered by them.
