The benefits and effects of CBD are still being researched but it has been shown to help with an incredibly wide range of issues. Unlike so many other supplements, chemicals, and pharmaceutical drugs, CBD doesn’t just remove a symptom or cure a single ailment. It can impact many different systems in our bodies and promote balance in a wide range of physiological processes.
CBD has been found to exhibit anticonvulsant, antiemetic, analgesic, antioxidant, antidepressant, antipsychotic, and anti-inflammatory properties, making it an incredibly well-rounded source of relief. Many diseases come with a variety of symptoms that are all treated with a barrage of different medications each designed to affect different physiological systems. CBD influences so many of these systems that it can at times replace the need for multiple medications.
While CBD does have an impressive resume of therapeutic properties, it can trigger side effects in some people, such as anxiety, changes in appetite, changes in mood, diarrhea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth, and nausea. The use of CBD oil could also increase production of liver enzymes which could be a marker of liver damage.
*While side effects may be minimal or not typical, it’s good to be aware of all potential reactions.
