Leaky gut syndrome is a serious health condition characterized by holes in the intestinal walls that allow bacteria and other toxins to enter the bloodstream. It can be fatal if left untreated. While there is limited information on the exact negative side effects of CBD oil, user accounts and partial scientific research have identified 15 possible side effects. Everyone's body is unique and may react differently to CBD.
Taking 1000 mg of CBD for the first time can cause nausea, as this is a decently high amount of CBD. To reduce stomach discomfort or nausea caused by CBD, it is recommended to lower the dose until feeling better or to drink water immediately after taking the CBD oil to rinse it off. Stopping taking CBD altogether should be avoided, as this could affect the effectiveness of consistent use. If experiencing digestive problems while taking CBD oil, it is important to look at what type of CBD oil is being used.
The quality of hemp-derived CBD oil, the specific oil base used, the cannabis extraction method and the overall quality of hemp in the soil can all make a difference. Additionally, both grapefruit and CBD contain compounds that bind and neutralize the enzymes in the intestine (the CYP450 enzymes), which help to destroy and remove the drug from the body. CBD can also be found to help increase appetite, but mainly in combination with THC products. If experiencing side effects from taking CBD, it may be worth trying a different type of CBD oil with a different carrier oil such as olive oil instead of MCT oil.
It is also possible to try other ways of taking CBD such as capsules or edibles. If experiencing digestive problems while taking CBD, it is recommended to stop consuming it for a couple of days and start again to see if it's CBD or something else. Current data suggest that CBD could be extremely useful for all types of symptoms or problems, and that the benefits completely outweigh the potential negative side effects.
