Can you overdose on CBD?
No. CBD is non-toxic, as such no fatal overdose levels have ever been reported. Several studies have evaluated the safety of CBD in adults and the World Health Organisation states that it’s well tolerated to levels greater than the average person would need.
The FSA has just recommended the max daily intake to 70mg. It is not recommended for children or during pregnancy.
Should I take CBD if am taking other medication?
CBD inhibits the enzyme CYP450, as does grapefruit. Some medications are eliminated from the body by the liver using this enzyme so inhibiting it actually increases the amount of the medication left circulating in your body. Think of the liver as a waste treatment plant in the body and of CYP450 as one of the filters. Stopping CYP450 from working allows more waste to get through. Drugs you ingest are treated as ‘waste’ by the body which is why you might need to take the same drug three or four times a day to keep it working.
Not all drugs are removed by the liver and of those that are, not all rely on this enzyme. However, it is good advice to say that; IF the drug you are taking mentions grapefruit in the Patient Information Leaflet, or if you’ve been advised to avoid grapefruit by your doctor or pharmacist, you shouldn’t take CBD before asking their advice.
What are the beneficial properties of CBD perceived to be?
People have told us they take CBD as part of their lifestyle. Due to the classification of CBD as a food supplement, it cannot be given any medical claims, however what we can tell you is that CBD gives your system a little boost by working in harmony with your body naturally, specifically with your endocannabinoid system (ECS).
Our ECS is absolutely vital to our survival because it regulates a huge number of everyday functions that support health and well-being, and restores balance, functions such as appetite and digestion, metabolism, chronic pain, inflammation and other immune system responses, mood, sleep, cardiovascular system function, muscle formation, bone remodelling and growth, liver function, reproductive system function, stress, skin and nerve function.
Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a varied diet.
