When I first got interested in taking CBD for the health benefits, I wanted to learn more about it.
Although the second-most abundant cannabinoid is gaining lots of attention and popularity due to its curative potential, I hoped to have a better understanding of what exactly I was ingesting.
I know that CBD is generally considered safe and as a natural substance, avoids the harmful consequences of synthetic pharmaceuticals. However, there can be some mild side-effects, such as drowsiness, diarrhea, change in appetite and fluctuation in weight. When taking larger doses of full-spectrum CBD products, there are small amounts of THC and the resulting effects. I’ve read that eating a high-in-fat meal can increase CBD in the blood and elevate the chance of side-effects, but I’m conscientious about what I eat. So far, I have suffered none of the possible side-effects. I typically shop for broad-spectrum CBD oils, gummies, topicals and cartridges. Broad-spectrum options offer all of the curative properties of cannabinoids and compounds of the cannabis plant without any THC. Now and then, I try full-spectrum CBD strains, which can contain up to 0.3% THC. The THC level is so minimal that there is little chance of anything but slight psychoactive effects. I believe there are advantages to the combination of THC and CBD. In recent studies, researchers have found that CBD and THC provide greater rewards when combined than when taken alone. It is called the entourage effect and has tempted me to be a little more generous in the percentage of THC I am willing to consume.
