CBD Products Benefits and Cautions

While CBD products are becoming more and more popular, there are some things you should consider before using CBD products. For instance, despite its popularity, there can be some side effects from using CBD products, some drug interactions, and consistency. We'll explore all of those issues.

CBD Source

CBD oil is made by extracting cannabidiol from a variety of the Cannabis Sativa plant. While both marijuana and hemp plants are Cannabis Sativa, the variety which has more THC and produces marijuana is different from the hemp variety which has little THC but it higher in cannabidiol.
Cannabidiol is the effective ingredient of the hemp plant which produces so many benefits, while avoiding the high produced by THC. In fact, CBD products are supposed to have less than .3% in order to be legal...and in some states even that little amount is still not legal.

Are CBD Products Effective?

Let’s take a look.

As mentioned above, there may be some possible side effects from ingesting CBD oil and CBD products. These may include:

  • Dry mouth
  • Reduced appetite
  • Fatigue
  • Drowsiness
  • Diarrhea
  • Increase in liver enzymes
  • It can also interact negatively with certain medications.
Overall, CBD oil is quite safe and is not addictive. Most of the possible side effects are quite mild.

Serious Possible Side Effects from Ingesting CBD Products

As with most drugs, even natural remedies, there are a couple of possible serious consequences, too. Not all potential drug interactions are known yet. However, but if you take anti-seizure medication or blood thinners you should check with your medical professional (who will probably advise you NEVER to us CBD).

Also, ingesting CBD products can also raise liver enzymes. This may indicate that the processing CBD may stress the liver. So if you have any liver issues, you'll probably want to exercise caution when it comes to using CBD.

As with any medicinal product, it would be wise to consult with your physician before using it.

Known Benefits of Using CBD Products

Notwithstanding the cautions mentioned above, the benefits may out weigh them in the long run. The known benefits include:

Nausea and Pain of Chemotherapy

CBD oil can reduce nausea, vomiting, and pain in those receiving chemotherapy treatment. Many people with cancer claim the treatment is worse than the cancer itself. CBD oil can make the cure for cancer a lot more tolerable.

Pain Relief

Records show that marijuana has been used to treat pain for nearly 5,000 years. CBD is one of the primary components of marijuana that soothes pain. CBD oil has been found to reduce pain in several studies. Given that many traditional pain medications have many negative side effects and are addictive, CBD oil is very attractive for treating chronic pain.

Anxiety Relief

CBD oil has been found to be effective in treating anxiety. This is great news, because CBD oil isn’t addictive. Many anxiety medications are addictive and often produce undesirable side effects, such as insomnia, agitation, drowsiness, and sexual dysfunction.


One study showed that CBD oil lowers blood pressure and may reduce the likelihood of stroke and heart attack.


The anti-inflammatory effects of CBD oil are believed to be responsible for the reduction of acne in regular consumers of CBD oil. It’s also believed that CBD oil reduces sebum production.


Studies in animals suggest that CBD oil could be effective in treating and preventing diabetes. This benefit, however, is still being researched. However, in the laboratory CBD oil was found to reduce the incidence of diabetes in rats by over 50% when CBD oil was ingested.


Studies also seem to indicate that CBD may be effective in both preventing and treating cancers. During experiments, researchers found that tumors grow more slowly, and cancer spreads throughout the body more slowly in rats that are given CBD oil.


Many would be surprised that our pets can also benefit from CBD products and for many of the same reasons. Pain management is one area where pets can really benefit from CBD.

You Sure About No High?

Yes, we're sure. While some might be concerned that CBD oil might produce a high since it’s a marijuana-related product. The short answer is “no,” it will not produce a "high". Again CBD-based products contain cannabidiol, but not THC. THC is the compound that produces the “high” in marijuana. In fact, as mentioned above, CBD oil products are illegal in many states if they contain even trace amounts of THC.

What About Consistency?

One of the issues with CBD oil is dosing and consistency. CBD oil production is largely unregulated. One manufacturer’s product might have significantly more or less CBD than another’s. A product from the same manufacturer might have consistency issues from one batch to the next.

If you decide to use CBD oil, consider the source before you purchase. This is one reasons that Essential Natural Remedies has done the research for you, and found the more reliable and more recommended sources of quality CBD oil and CBD products

While CBD products have a lot of benefits and provide a minimal amount of risk for most people, you need to do your own research and talk to your physician. CBD oil and products might be a great choice for you, but be sure to make a well-informed decision.
