The short answer is this: pure CBD seems to be safe for most people. However, we don’t have rigorous studies and long-term data to prove whether or not a wide range of CBD products are safe for everyone. For example, there is no evidence to suggest that CBD is safe during pregnancy or breastfeeding, or for people who are immunocompromised.
So far, there’s not much evidence on the medical benefits of CBD, partly because laws on marijuana made it difficult to study. Until we learn more, it’s wise to keep in mind that few high-quality studies have been done.
Are CBD products safe?
Other potential benefits of CBD aren’t clear. No high-quality research shows that CBD improves sex drive, decreases pain, treats depression or mood disorders, decreases PMS symptoms like bloating and cramps, or relieves symptoms of menopause like hot flashes. This may change as more studies are done, but for now, the jury is out.
Cannabis Sativa and Hemp are two different plants. Marijuana is not a plant, it’s a slang term used by rhetoric spewing racists seeking to profit from a new prohibition. How can you publish this when you clearly don’t know the basics?
There are a lot of extravagant product claims out there about the benefits of CBD for women, but little high-quality research supports them. CBD oil and other CBD products aren’t well regulated. It’s possible what you are buying is counterfeit or contaminated. Before using CBD — especially if you plan to vape or ingest it — first talk with your doctor or healthcare provider to learn whether it could be safe and helpful for you.
Kerrigan says the team at Sagely always recommend consulting with a physician if you are concerned about side effects or interactions with other prescriptions. “While we’d love to say conclusively that it doesn’t interact with other medications, there is still a lot of research that needs to be done on this particular question. Our first priority is the health and well-being of our customers, so we always suggest on erring on the side of caution and checking with an expert.” CBD can interfere with hormone levels, though subtly, and for that reason the interaction between cbd and estrogen should be monitored.

We were pretty excited to hear this too. Nearly a third of adults experience anxiety in their lives, with women experiencing anxiety twice as often as men. Many women in the throes of the perimenopause-to-menopause transition experience anxiety, some having panic attacks for the first time as hormone levels fluctuate. Anxiety can be debilitating, and relief is often hard to find. For this reason, CBD for hormone imbalance and anxiety is one of its primary implementations.
What other benefits are there from CBD?
CBD is effective against joint and muscle pain because the pain you’re experiencing is due to inflammation. Fortunately, the areas that hurt also seem to have high levels of cannabinoid receptors, meaning they’re ready to take up CBD with all its wonderful inflammation-fighting properties.
