CBD, in its purest form (CBD isolate), is a completely safe medicine to use, under the proper dosage. CBD isolate is quite literally CBD isolated from all other parts of the cannabis plant. This process creates non-dangerous products, guaranteeing a pure, THC-free product. And, many countries deem it as legal.
The danger, however, comes when companies decide that they value quantity over quality. Most countries create laws that state that CBD becomes illegal once a certain percentage of THC is found within a product. Commonly, no more than 0.3% of THC is allowed within any given CBD product, but certain countries have far stricter regulations.
The Chemical Make-up
Cannabis has over 100 cannabinoids that can interact with and consequently affect the human mind and nervous system. The two substances most well-known are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). And, to name a few more: THCV, CBDV, CBG, CBC, and CBN.
The danger of CBD rests on how the user decides to use it. Anyone can have too much of anything–even water! Water intoxication is a real thing, and drinking more than a body can handle can lead to a pressure buildup within the skull. That can then lead to coma and death. If you take too much CBD, the body will not know what to do with the excess and the help that the medicine is meant to provide suddenly turns against the body. That is one of the many reasons why it is essential to start at the lowest dosage. And, when possible, remain at the lowest dosage needed. Furthermore, drug tolerance is very important to understand, no matter which drug a person may be taking.
Does CBD Have Dangerous Side Effects?
Side effects are always a concern, no matter the type of medication. CBD, in that regard, is no different. However, since CBD does not interact with the nervous system in the same way THC does, CBD’s effects are far tamer than what may be assumed.
According to the CDC, CBD in high dosages begins to lose its medicinal power. CBD may also cause drowsiness, liver damage (in extreme cases), changes in mood, changes in appetite, and interference with certain drugs that someone is already taking. Moreover, CBD, like most drugs that influence a person’s mental state, is not recommended for those pregnant. It is not yet known how CBD affects the developing minds of children and the CDC recommends CBD products remain out of the reach of children.
Where Can I Find Safe CBD?
Most companies offer edibles and products with “CBD oil” or “hemp oil,” but Feel Good Edibles edibles are different. FGE sells CBD products exclusively using CBD isolate.
As stated prior, CBD isolate is the literal isolation of cannabidiol from the rest of the cannabis plant and its cannabinoids. This helps FGE guarantee a THC-free product every single time, evidenced by lab-tested-and-proven reports. FGE is trusted by many buyers, and guarantees genuine lab-results of all products.
