CBD is perfectly safe to ingest.
While side effects are not common, first time users may experience one or more of the following while adjusting dosages:
- Changes in appetite
- Changes in mood
- Dry mouth
The biggest concern is how CBD will react with other medications as it is known to slow down the process by which your liver metabolizes drugs and breaks down chemicals. If you are already on prescription medications and are thinking of taking CBD, it is important to speak with your doctor before trying it on your own.
