Marijuana is no longer a topic of taboo, thanks to its legalization across states. CBD oil, one of the by-products of the Marijuana Industry, is gaining popularity for its tremendous health benefits. But are there any cons to this wonder drug?

CBD or cannabidiol is one of the many chemical compounds present in the cannabis Sativa plant. But what gave this particular compound the popularity is its non-toxic nature. It does not give you a noticeable euphoria that is usually experienced after vaping or smoking weed.

Studies suggest that vaping is better for health than smoking. If you think vaping is a better option for you then visit go smoke free uk.

CBD is marketed under many labels across registered dispensaries in marijuana legalized states. Unlike what the name suggests CBD oil is used and consumed in many forms. Soft gel capsules, creams, salves, under-the-tongue sprays, and even tinctures. The potency and concentration, however, varies with each product.

Health Benefits of CBD Oil

Cannabidiol can be used for a variety of purposes. People dealing with anxiety, bipolar, seizures, and dystonia (a muscle disorder) find it extremely beneficial. Many chain smokers have testified that inhaling cannabidiol helps them get over their smoking addiction. Besides CBD oil is also used for increasing focus and clearing mental fog. And thanks to the massive industry growing around it, availability is not a problem. To buy weed online, Quebec has many licensed online and physical dispensaries.

Unlike many other drugs that are consumed for recreational and medicinal purposes, CBD has a fairly decent safety profile. It is often mistaken with its base plant, Cannabis, which has much stronger effects and side effects. It seems like a rather innocent drug. But does CBD oil have negative side effects?


CBD oil, once in our bloodstream, interacts with certain drug-metabolizing enzymes that are primarily responsible for CBD metabolism. These enzymes belong to the cytochrome family. When you are under medication, certain drugs tend to inhibit the production of this enzyme which slows down the metabolism of CBD. On the other hand, other drugs, accelerate the enzyme production breaking down CBD faster. Such complications often come naturally to people having CBD with pharmaceutical drugs and are often considered dismissable. But it is always wiser to consult a doctor before taking any CBD therapy while you are on an alternate medication.


Terpenes are mainly responsible for this mild side effect. Cannabis vape oil uk is derived from cannabis flowers. These are molecules present in cannabis flowers with a typical aroma. Terpenes come with many medicinal benefits. Terpenes and cannabinoids, the two most dominant compounds found in cannabis,

work in sync to generate synergistic effects in your body.

Terpenes are believed to heighten the sedative effects of CBD oil.


Some patients complain of a dry mouth sensation immediately after starting the CBD oil treatment. Our submandibular glands have an entire endocannabinoid system in them. CBD affects the endocannabinoid system, inhibiting the production of saliva. A rather harmless side effect. Simply increase your fluid intake and pay more attention to dental health.

If conditions persist, consult a doctor to get medical advice. However, this dry mouth syndrome usually goes away as the body adjusts to CBD oil.


CBD oil is widely popular for its sedative effects. But different bodies react differently to CBD oil. It could get unpredictable at times with effects varying from sedation to stimulation.

Ironically, the ill monitored usage of CBD can lead to overstimulation, triggering anxiety, instead of relieving it.


Sedation is the most common side effect of CBD oil.

Some users choose this oil specifically for this side effect, excessive sedation can be a major concern. In this case, you need to wisely regulate the amount of CBD oil that goes into your system. Excessive sedation could be a result of a high dosage of CBD oil. Reduce the dosage and wait for a while. Your body should adapt to CBD with time, if not, never hesitate to consult a doctor instead of experimenting with self medications.


Like the old saying goes- Too much good can do bad. Excessive use of CBD Oil can have you taking trips to the bathroom. An upset stomach and mild diarrhea if not fatal are rather inconvenient. Cannabinoids can also alter your appetite at times. While some individuals feel like gorging on food others get sick at the sight. This can substantially reduce your weight over a short period of time.

However, there is no well-defined rule book when it comes to CBD. The topic needs and awaits a lot of research. If you say that I love growing marijuana than go for the hydroponic growing techniques and detailed marijuana guides that give you the hassle-free option to grow. In-depth medical research and creating awareness among masses is the only way to lift the shroud of this mysterious yet beneficial medicine. While some see it as a wonder drug, others detest the very idea. In the meanwhile, it would be wise to enjoy the benefits of this wonder drug with careful and conscious consideration.

Wellness Coaching
$20 USD
50 & Beyond Health & Wellbeing Discovery Session

Join me for a comprehensive look into what it will take to stay physically and mentally strong as you move through the second half of your life.

We all want to age without the fear of suffering from a chronic illness and still have the energy and strength to live the life we want.

The number one reason people fail to stay healthy as they age is the inability to consistently follow the right habits and behaviours for health transformation.

Through working with 1000's of clients over the last 20 years, I have been able to develop a coaching program that not only looks at nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress management but also how to develop the right mindset needed to succeed.

Having a plan is not as important as having the ability to implement it.

If you are someone who struggles to follow healthy habits consistently. Or you are someone who wants to learn more about what they need to do personally to avoid chronic illness. Then my 30-minute Discovery Session is ideal for you.

From the 30 minutes we spend together, we will go through in specific detail what it is you can do today when it comes to what to eat, how to get the most from exercise, how to develop a powerful sleep routine and how to build a healthy environment needed to live a healthy life.

And with over 20 years of coaching experience in the health & wellness industry, I have witnessed firsthand what it takes to consistently follow the right habits and behaviours for lasting change.

Expect to hear things that will challenge what you have always been told about nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress management. As someone who is over 50 and is stronger, fitter and healthier than I was in my 20s, 30s, & 40s, I am well-placed to know what works and doesn't as we move through this period of our lives.

Check Your Vibes! Find out how much Positive and Negative energy you have!

The Energy Leadership™ Index (ELI) assessment is the proprietary, research-backed assessment tool, created by iPEC, that takes something abstract, like the way a person views the world, and turns it into something tangible—a metric that you can see and feel and even reevaluate in the future.

You’ve probably taken personality tests, like Myers Briggs, DiSC, and Enneagram, but this is different. And transformational.

The ELI is an attitudinal assessment tool that captures how an individual currently perceives and approaches work and life. This means that you learn to make change happen in real-time when you encounter a moment of self-doubt, fear, or frustration.

With the awareness and insights gained through the Energy Leadership Index debrief, you have the opportunity to reshape your attitudes and worldview and transform your life into the one you envision.

Our worldview is the result of a combination of many different aspects: our past experiences, level of consciousness, perception of situations. Each of us has a unique combination of all seven levels of energy which, in turn, creates your typical viewpoints, perceptions, and beliefs about life.

Learning about your energetic makeup can help you to reframe your perspective, shift your consciousness, and increase your energy level as a result. Discover your unique energetic makeup by taking an ELI Assessment!

This comes with an hour debrief - As an FYI the price is what it is because there is a price to me- I have to pay the institution for the assessment and the scoring. Then I'll walk you thorugh your results.
