Cannabidiol (CBD) is a completely non-psychoactive extract of the cannabis plant, one of over 100 natural components, filtered to remove 100% of the THC content. This cannabinoid reacts with our body’s endocannabinoid system to give users the benefits without the unwanted ‘high’.

So with CBD being an all-natural product, and reacting with the body in an entirely natural way, surely you can use any CBD product to get the health benefits? Wrong. When it comes to quality and safety, not all CBD products were created equal.

What Are The Side Effects of CBD?

In a recent study, Jarai et al. discovered that CBD causes vasorelaxation. This is when the vascular walls of the circulatory system become relaxed, reducing blood pressure. Although useful if you suffer from high blood pressure, vasorelaxation will occur regardless, and is therefore a side effect of CBD usage. This means taking CBD regularly could inadvertently help everyday blood flow by relaxing your arteries and veins. While not harmful, and even beneficial, it is important to be aware of if you have an existing condition that causes low blood pressure.

A rising star in the wellness world for the last few years, CBD is set to sky-rocket in 2020. With gym-users hoping for stronger recovery, people looking for natural pain relief, and everyone in-between searching for better sleep, it’s important to understand the side effects of CBD on our body.

Put simply, do your research. Don’t be suckered in by bold claims and unbacked selling points, instead be on the lookout for essential lab approval certifications and details of third-party testing. Confirming essential quality and safety gives you that extra peace of mind when it comes to using a health-related product on a regular basis, including CBD.
