Can I Overdose On CBD?


MINT HILL - It’s natural for people new to CBD to ask this question. After all, anyone who wants to try CBD will want to know if it’s really safe. Well, let me help ease your mind a little.

This article talks about the safety of CBD, what happens when you’ve taken too much, and what you can do to relieve some of the discomfort.

Your body has a limited number of cannabinoid receptors that will not be able to receive more cannabinoids when saturated. This means that there is an optimum dose of CBD from which an additional unit of CBD simply does nothing. This is important because overdosing could lead to developing CBD tolerance, making CBD’s effect less noticeable with prolonged continuous consumption. Having said that, CBD will rarely cause an adverse overdose situation, and it is very safe to consume every day. However, we strongly recommend you consult your physician before defining your CBD intake schedule since, as we mentioned previously, CBD can affect each person differently.

So, to answer the question — no, you won’t lethally overdose on CBD, but it is possible to take too much and feel uncomfortable for a few hours.

Taking too much CBD may not result in fatal overdose and death, but it doesn’t mean that it won’t cause any discomfort.

CBD, just like any other drug, also has some side effects but if you follow my recommended dosage when purchasing our CBD sublingual oil, you will be fine.

Taking too much CBD may cause:

  • Dry mouth. When CBD activates the cannabinoid receptors found in the mouth, it decreases saliva secretion.
  • Drowsiness, lightheadedness, and dizziness. These may be caused by CBD lowering the blood pressure since it relaxes the blood vessel walls.
  • Loose bowel movements or diarrhea
  • Appetite changes
  • Nausea and vomiting, especially on high CBD doses.
