Some research indicates that the use of CBD oil may trigger a number of side effects, including:
- Changes in appetite
- Changes in mood
- Dry mouth
CBD oil may interact with several medications, including some types of anti-epileptic drugs.
A report from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) published in the journal Pediatrics cautions pregnant women and nursing mothers to avoid marijuana use due to possible adverse developmental effects to their baby. In a study reviewed for the report, short-term exposure to CBD was found to increase the permeability of the placental barrier, potentially placing the fetus at risk from certain substances.
If you’re thinking of using CBD oil to treat a health problem (and it is legal where you live), make sure to consult your healthcare provider first to discuss potential side effects and whether it's appropriate for you.
Because CBD oil products are mostly unregulated, there’s no guarantee that any given product contains a safe or effective level of CBD. In fact, a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 2017 found that nearly 70 percent of all CBD products sold online are incorrectly labeled and could cause serious harm to consumers. Some CBD oils may also contain incorrectly labeled amounts of THC and other compounds. This is why all products offered by FinallyCBD have independent laboratory testing available to validate their purity and potency.
