Can You Overdose on CBD? 700 402 The Farmula

Can You Overdose on CBD?

With more people using CBD for its laundry list of health and wellness benefits, it is important to be clear on the effects it can have, both positive and negative. It is important to note that while there is not enough THC to get you high in even full-spectrum CBD products, you can possibly take too much.

So, what happens if you take too much CBD?

According to research, if you consume too much CBD, you may experience negative side effects such as:

  •         Diarrhea
  •         Vomiting
  •         Drowsiness

How much is too much CBD?

According to studies, people can consume between 20 and 1,500 mg per day. That seems like a wide gap, but dosing depends on a lot of factors. For instance, how much CBD you can handle versus what your husband or wife can take without feeling negative effects will be different. So, as with anything, it is important to figure out what dosage is best for you specifically.

It has been reported that you must ingest 20,000 mg all at once (or within a short period of time) for it to be toxic to your body, but you can still experience negative side effects with less depending on your body. It is also important to keep in mind that even though it may not be toxic to your body if you take a ton CBD, it can still make you feel super drowsy and funky.

If you purchase CBD gummies and you have children, it is important to keep them out of reach. If children eat a bunch of CBD gummies, thinking they are candy, they can suffer breathing problems.

CBD may interact with certain medications

CBD has been known to interact with certain medications, so it is important to ask your doctor before using CBD if you are taking a prescription medication. A good rule of thumb is to stay clear of consuming CBD if you are taking a medication that has a grapefruit warning. CBD and grapefruit may cause interactions with the same medications.

Some of the more common medications that may interact with grapefruit juice include:

  • Statin cholesterol drugs including atorvastatin (Lipitor), lovastatin and simvastatin (Zocor)
  • Calcium channel blockers
  • Loratadine (Claritin)

To be sure, ask your doctor before taking any additional supplements.

So the big question…is CBD safe to take?

Yes. It is safe to take and is known for its health and wellness benefits. While there doesn’t appear to be a high risk for overdose, if you take too much for your body, it may still cause you to be super tired, feel weird and experience stomach issues. So, if you are new to using CBD, start slow and see what you can handle comfortably.

It is also important to keep in mind that when you are purchasing CBD products you should investigate the company you are getting them from to make sure you are getting high quality CBD. Make sure they have third party lab test results available to ensure the CBD is free from pesticides and dangerous chemicals.

Can CBD Cream be Used for Inflammation? 750 500 The Farmula

Can CBD Cream be Used for Inflammation?

CBD cream has been widely used for its health and wellness benefits, including its ability to reduce inflammation. More and more people are using CBD cream to treat pain and inflammation caused by arthritis as well as joint and muscle pain. So, to answer the question…yes. CBD cream can be used for inflammation. In fact, that is one of the main things it is used for.

How does CBD Cream help with inflammation?

CBD is a naturally occurring compound found in the hemp plant, just like THC. It is a cannabinoid that interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) and, as a result, has several healing properties. It binds with the body’s CB2 receptor, which has a direct impact on our immune system. This means that CBD inhibits the production of inflammatory processes in the body, which in turn helps reduce pain and arthritis.

Unlike THC, CBD does not have psychoactive properties Consumers use it for its health benefits, including its anti-inflammatory and pain reducing properties.

How do you use CBD Cream?

Unlike having to ingest CBD oils, many consumers like using CBD creams for inflammation, because it can be applied directly to painful joints and muscles like the neck and back, knees, shoulders, hands, or wrists. When applied to the skin, the effects of CBD are felt almost instantly, whereas if you drop CBD oil under the tongue it takes longer for the effects to be felt.

Due to the healing effects of CBD cream, it is often used to reduce symptoms of:

  • Arthritis
  • Severe back pain
  • Achy joints from working out or playing sports
  • Neck pain
  • Hand and wrist pain
  • Tired feet

Some of the best CBD creams contain other healing ingredients that work together with the CBD for optimal results. These ingredients vary depending on the brand, but can include:

  • Menthol
  • Eucalyptus
  • Peppermint
  • Shae Butter
  • Jojoba Oil
  • Vitamin E Oil
  • Avocado Oil

CBD creams are also used to sooth dry skin and help with skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, and eczema.

What to look for when choosing a CBD Cream

If you are new to the CBD world and are looking for a high quality CBD cream, there are a few things to look for as you’re shopping.

  1.       Make sure the company you are purchasing your CBD cream from is a reputable company that gets its hemp from a farm that practices safe and organic practices. This will ensure your CBD cream is free from pesticides or other harmful additives.
  2.       Look at how much CBD is in the cream. It is also important to see whether it is full or broad-spectrum CBD or CBD isolate. If you are worried about having even the smallest traces of THC in your products, make sure it is THC free.
  3.       See if the product is organic, which means it uses all natural and organic hemp and other ingredients.
  4.       You can check to make sure the company tests its products with a third-party lab to check for safety and quality. You should be able to find the third-party test results on their website easily if they are a good quality company.
  5.       Its always a good idea to look through reviews about the company and its products to see what other consumers are saying about them.

Can CBD Cream Be Used for Pain? 688 516 The Farmula

Can CBD Cream Be Used for Pain?

One of the most common things CBD cream is used for is to help reduce muscle and joint pain. When you rub CBD cream onto your skin, it is absorbed into the body and helps reduce the inflammation that is causing pain in the affected area. So, in short…yes. CBD cream can be used for pain.

Keep in mind that more extensive research needs to be conducted to determine if CBD products are as helpful as other medications. But if you are experiencing pain in your muscles or joints or are suffering from skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis, you may consider trying a CBD cream to see how it works for you.

What is Exactly is CBD Cream?

To make CBD cream, manufacturers add CBD to oils such as hemp seed oil, avocado oil, Vitamin E oil and /or jojoba oil and then they use the infused oil as an ingredient in lotions, creams, balms, and salves. CBD itself is known to have anti-inflammatory properties which reduce symptoms of certain skin conditions as well as help manage joint and muscle pain.

Most CBD creams use broad-spectrum CBD which has other compounds from the cannabis plant such as terpenes and may or may not contain tiny traces of THC. But don’t worry! If there is THC in the CBD, it would be such a trace amount that you wouldn’t feel any of the effects such as paranoia or heightened anxiety.

What are the Benefits of CBD Creams?

  • Several health benefits have been associated with CBD creams, including:
  • Reducing pain caused by arthritis.
  • Reducing pain for people who have peripheral neuropathy, a condition where nerve damage causes numbness, discomfort and weakness in the feet and hands.
  • Alleviating symptoms of skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, and eczema.
  • Reducing feelings of anxiety and stress.
  • Reducing pain and stiffening around a person’s jaw who is suffering from temporomandibular disorder (TMD).

What to Look for in a Quality CBD Cream

Companies everywhere are popping up and selling CBD creams, but how do you really know you are getting the highest quality CBD cream? Here are a few things to think about as you begin your hunt for CBD cream:

  • Make sure the company you are buying the cream from has a third-party lab testing that reflects what they claim. Results from testing should be posted on their website. If you cannot find them, you should email and ask!
  • Look to see if the CBD is full spectrum, broad spectrum or a CBD isolate. If you do not want any THC at all, you will want to look for a cream that says made with CBD isolate or with broad spectrum CBD with zero THC. Full spectrum will contain THC as well as other compounds from the cannabis plant.
  • Check the ingredient list to see what other ingredients are in the cream. You’ll want to make sure all the ingredients listed are natural and high quality.
