Before considering any Cannabis treatment please do note that just like every other medicine Medical Cannabis does have potential side effects such as-
CBD has a narrow side effect profile. Some reported side effects of Cannabidiol include dry mouth, low blood pressure, light-headedness, and drowsiness, however, these are very uncommon.
Patients with autoimmune disorders or those who suffer from a lot of allergies could have a negative response from carrier oil or capsule container. In those cases, CBD Isolate (which is 99% pure CBD) would be a better form to try CBD.
Signs of liver injury have also been reported in some patients, but this is very uncommon.
Side effects from CBD are very uncommon but they might include dry mouth, nausea or even allergy to the carrier oil in the CBD. We also look for other interactions with other medications, most commonly the P450 metabolism medications.
THC is a psychotropic Cannabinoid and the side effects include increased heart rate, dizziness, drowsiness, impaired short-term memory, dry mouth, nausea, anxiety, increased appetite and euphoria.
This is not an inducement to use Medicinal Cannabis. Medical Cannabis doesn’t work for everyone, and it may not work for you. How Cannabis affects a person depends on many things, including their size, weight, age and health, dosage and tolerance, and the results can vary. Some people may experience side effects when taking Cannabinoid medication such as CBD oil or THC. The information provided by CDA Clinics is for educational and informational purposes only.
