First time CBD users are faced with a serious question, “can you overdose on CBD oil?” The answer is no! No one has ever overdosed on CBD or THC. CBD oil is safe to take, even in large amounts. The side-effects of taking too much CBD oil are very mild and rare. 

What is CBD?

CBD is a non-intoxicating chemical compound found in cannabis. The cannabis plant has over 100 compounds called cannabinoids they include CBD and THC. Unlike THC, CBD will not get you high, no matter how much is ingested. CBD has become the latest natural health craze because of its medicinal benefits. Users have reported less anxiety, better sleep, a decrease in inflammation, and many more. 

Can You Ingest CBD Oil?

CBD oil is CBD taken in a carrier oil. The carrier oil is usually made from hemp seeds or coconut oil (MCT oil). Both are safe to ingest and have their own benefits. 

Taking CBD oil is done sublingually. This means letting the oil dissolve under the tongue. This allows the CBD to absorb into the blood stream. Sublingual administration is a fairly efficient type of CBD administration. Compared to taking CBD in the form of edibles, CBD oil has a faster release time and higher bioavailability. 

CBD Overdose

Overdosing on CBD has never happened. Even THC has never led to a known overdose. While there have not been any cases of a CBD overdose. Some people have reported having a bad experience. Users have reported having these side-effects. 

  • Anxiety and depression

  • Dry mouth

  • Nausea

  • Vomiting

  • Diarrhea

  • Appetite changes

  • Psychosis

  • Drowsiness

  • Dizziness

These side-effects are rare. However, new users need to be cautious. Start with a small dose and consult with a physician if you have any uncertainties. 

Side-effects like anxiety, depression, psychosis are most likely caused by users with mental health problems. Taking cannabis products with conditions like schizophrenia can be extremely dangerous. Usually when you hear about a person who has had an episode after taking marijuana, cannabis with a substantial amount of THC, it is because they were already suffering from a mental disorder. 

Taking Too Much CBD

According to a study done in 2011 on the safety of CBD, taking doses as high as 1500mg per day is tolerated well by humans. Taking this much CBD every day is not only wasteful but extremely expensive. A tincture of CBD oil containing 1500mg of CBD or CBD capsules containing 100 mg can be priced as high as $300. 

Finding the Right CBD Company

The biggest concern to a new CBD user is finding a brand they can trust. Many CBD companies found online or at gas stations are misleading about the contents of their products. CBD’s relationship with marijuana has created a legal grey area surrounding the industry. Many companies have seized on this opportunity to take advantage of new users. 

When trying out a new CBD company, make sure to see their 3rd party lab tests. They should be provided in the for of COAs (certificate of analysis) ensuring that the amount of CBD in their products is legitimate. 

These fraudulent companies have also been known to have dangerous ingredients in their products. Pesticides and harmful metals can create unwanted side-effects completely unrelated to hemp or CBD. Make sure to find a CBD company you can trust. 

Can You Overdose on CBD Oil? NO!

Even though CBD is a new health craze, it has shown promise in being safe to take. Users can be confident that they will not overdose when taking the CBD oil. Much more research is needed to be done, but the future looks bright for CBD and CBD users.
