Can You Overdose on CBD?

Drinking too much water can be fatal, so it’s logical to think that CBD could also be overdosed. However, CBD is not only considered safe but is believed to have healing properties as well. Scientific studies support many of these healing effects. CBD is known to be anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, pain-relieving, and can also have a calming effect on the mind. Because of these qualities, there’s a lot of interest in researching CBD’s benefits for various health issues such as insomnia, mood disorders, pain, musculoskeletal disorders, and even cancer.

What Are the Side Effects of CBD?

If you consume too much CBD in a short time, you may experience the following side effects:

  • Fatigue
  • Drowsiness
  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea
  • Abdominal discomfort
  • Increased anxiety levels
  • Hepatotoxicity (harm to the liver)
  • Potential reproductive harm

It might be surprising that a product sold as candy can have so many side effects. However, it’s important to note that all of these adverse effects were reported in clinical trials, except for reproductive harm, which has only been observed in animal tests.

Next, we’ll discuss each of these side effects in more detail. Everything needs to be considered in context, as we can prove anything when we cherry-pick information.

CBD Oil Side Effects

Let’s talk about CBD oil side effects. It’s worth considering that CBD might not always be the cause of your side effects. For instance, if you consume more carrier oil than recommended, you’ll end up taking a higher dose of CBD oil, which could cause gastrointestinal discomfort if you’re sensitive.

CBD gummies could also potentially have negative effects, although this is less likely.

Drug to Drug Interactions

Consult your doctor before using CBD if you’re already taking medication. CBD interacts with various receptors in the body and brain. While it has a lower affinity than THC for the CB1 and CB2 receptors in the endocannabinoid system, it can affect other receptors like dopamine, serotonin, GABA, and opioid receptors, which are crucial systems in the body. Since many medications target these receptors, there’s a possibility of interaction with CBD.
