Are there any side effects to CBD?

I’m sure you have heard of some of the great benefits of CBD oil, with it being more popular than ever within the health industry. CBD oil has been found to relieve symptoms of depression, cancer, chronic pain, anxiety, PTSD, Multiple Sclerosis and more. This healing part of the cannabis plant contains just 0.2% THC which is not enough to get you high, or leave you with any psychoactive effects.

We truly believe in the healing benefits of CBD. However, some customers of the CBD Dispensary are still unsure and worry whether there are any negative side effects of CBD.

What are the negative side effects of CBD?

Generally, the CBD oil is safe for all, when consumed correctly. There are a few possible and minor side effects that could occur, however they are rarely seen and not detrimental to health in any way. It is nothing like the side effects of THC, which is psychoactive. 

Here are a few side effects you could possibly find when taking CBD.

Light headed and dizzy - Lowers blood pressure

CBD oil can be used to help lower blood pressure, which is great if you have high blood pressure.

However, if you have low blood pressure already and are taking CBD in high doses then you might feel lightheaded and dizzy. If this is the case then reduce your intake of CBD and see if it helps.

Cotton Mouth  

You might find that just as with vaping, your mouth can get a little dry.

Whether you vape the CBD or drop it on your tongue you could still find you have a dry mouth.

Combat this by making sure you drink extra water while you are using CBD.


If you’re taking CBD in high quantities you might find that you get a little drowsy.

If you find that CBD makes you feel sleepy then either reduce the dose, or only use CBD at night while you are winding down for bed.

CBD has been known to help people with insomnia, so if this is you then you might want to give CBD a go to help you drift off and stay asleep.
