Who should not take CBD?

Who should not take CBD

In general, CBD, a natural cannabinoid found in the female cannabis plant, is considered safe and has a very good safety profile according to the World Health Organization (WHO). However, we are all different, and therefore, CBD products can lead to interactions or side effects in certain conditions. In this article, we answer the question: ‘Who should not take CBD?’ and try to provide you with some answers.

CBD – Possible Side Effects

CBD is generally well-tolerated by most people and rarely causes side effects. One factor that can increase side effects is poor quality. Lower-quality CBD products often contain chemicals and may not contain what is listed on the packaging. For example, if the CBD you purchase makes you feel intoxicated or high, this is primarily an indication that the maximum and legal THC content has been exceeded. At our store, you will only find high-quality CBD products, all of which are tested by reputable external laboratories.

Undesired reactions may include: fatigue, dry mouth, dizziness, loss of appetite, diarrhea, and allergic reactions (e.g., hemp allergy). They usually occur due to overdosing. We have summarized how you can find the right dose for you personally in the article ‘CBD Oil – Finding the Right Dosage.’

Who Should Avoid Taking CBD and Why

As you know, research on CBD is still in its early stages.

Pregnant and Nursing Women Since researchers are still not unanimous about the extent to which CBD is safe during pregnancy, we advise against taking it. Side effects can affect not only the pregnant woman but also the unborn child. Since the situation is unclear, we also advise against consuming CBD while nursing.

People with Liver Conditions Anyone suffering from liver conditions or simply having a poorly functioning liver should avoid CBD. Why? CBD is broken down by the liver, specifically by cytochrome P450 liver enzymes. If you are not sure, please always consult a qualified healthcare professional before taking it!

People with Low Blood Pressure CBD may have a calming effect and relieve stress, which can also lower blood pressure. However, if you already have low blood pressure or are taking medications that lower blood pressure, we also do not recommend taking CBD.

People Who Regularly Take Medications Since it cannot be ruled out that CBD may interact with medications, we recommend discussing CBD consumption with a medical specialist. On the one hand, taking them together may mean that the medications work differently or even lead to unpleasant side effects. Here it is important to thoroughly inform yourself in advance.

CBD and Children – Is It Possible?

In Bulgaria and the EU, the possession, consumption, and distribution of CBD are legal, as long as the THC content is below 0.3%. Depending on the product category, different age restrictions apply. Smoking CBD products (hemp flowers, vaporizers, e-cigarettes, etc.) are subject to a youth protection regulation from 2019, which sets an age limit of 18 years and older. Cosmetic products or dietary supplements containing CBD are not regulated in this regard, at least in Austria.

Some medical conditions, allergies, and other factors may restrict or influence the use of CBD. Always consult with a healthcare professional before starting any new dietary or wellness supplement, especially if you have any underlying health concerns or are taking other medications.”
