What are the side effects of CBD?
Unlike the other known molecule (THC) in cannabis, CBD has no psychotropic effect and is not addictive. This was confirmed in 2017 by the WHO (World Health Organisation), a UN body, which does not classify CBD as a narcotic substance. It is for these reasons that he is positively viewed as being able to enter a therapeutic process.
CBD can have drug interactions with a wide range of medications, from anti-cancer drugs to Voltaren. In particular, CBD can change the way the liver breaks down certain drugs. Before taking CBD, it is therefore advisable to check with your doctor that the action of CBD is compatible with these treatments.
Taking CBD at the same time as a therapeutic treatment involving a drug whose effect is altered by the liver can potentially increase the effects of that drug as well as its side effects. The usual response is to reduce the dosage of the drug treatment.
CBD also has some side effects of its own. These side effects have been noted in some cases, but are not inevitable. CBD can cause diarrhoea, appetite problems and a feeling of tiredness or even drowsiness.
