Blog 8: After Effects/Side Effects/Withdrawal

Quantum1™ has received a few emails asking if there are any after-effects/side-effects or withdrawal symptoms from using CBD…our website touches on this subject:

This blog will hopefully give a better understanding.

In Blog 7 Quantum 1™ touched on daily dosage and the effective amount which can be anywhere between 5mg and 70mg per day. Quantum 1™ CBD oil is not addictive; however there can be mild side effects if too much is taken.  
Quantum 1™ CBD oil is selected for its purity and potency because our endocannabinoid systems all react differently to various types and strengths of CBD oil. Therefore, if you haven’t taken CBD before, it’s best to start on a fairly low dosage and see how your body reacts and gradually build dosage to the maximum recommended.

Quantum 1™ believes in total transparency and can say that CBD oil is not for everyone. A review of clinical data on side effect of Cannabidiol (click link to view source). Clinical research has shown that CBD Oil can instigate some side effects especially if taking with certain medication and is always best to consult your doctor if you have any doubts.
The severity and type vary from one person to the next; People with liver disease should not use CBD as data has shown it may increase liver enzymes, also to be avoided whilst pregnant or breastfeeding. As more data is being processed it will further our understanding. If you see symptoms such as a change in moods, diarrhoea, dizziness, dry mouth, nausea and even vomiting then please stop using immediately and consult your doctor, it may not be the CBD and although the list seems daunting it is rare and like most supplements people can be allergic.  

Quantum 1™ is a big advocate of the benefits of CBD but feel that both sides of the story have to be told so everyone can have a better understanding and use our products safely.
