Is CBD addictive?
CBD oils have recently become a very popular dietary supplement. They are proving to be very effective in combating the effects of stress or sleep problems, among other things. However, despite their many health-promoting properties, there is a possibility of side effects if we use them incorrectly.
How to use CBD safely
In order to ensure that we get the most benefit from using CBD oils, it is essential to choose high-quality products that are certified and legally grown. CBD can be purchased in many different forms such as capsules, creams, dried or the popular oil. So we have many options to choose from. However, it is important to remember that the form in which we take the product can affect the effect of the compound and the longevity of the effect. Certainly, in supplementation with CBD products, it is very important to use it regularly and to choose the right dose.
Advantages of using cannabidiol
CBD acts on the receptors of the endocannabinoid system present in the human body. This system has a regulatory role and its receptors are found throughout the body from the skin to the brain. Most are found around the nervous system. By binding to the receptors of the endocannabinoid system, cannabidiol influences our wellbeing and condition on many levels simultaneously. The benefits of CBD's action on the endocannabinoid system are many and we can mention, among others: Protecting cells from free radicals;
Reducing or eliminating inflammation;
- Improving cognitive function;
- Alleviating skin problems;
- Improving digestion;
- Reducing the risk of metabolic syndrome;
- Enhancing immune system function;
- Reducing levels of the stress hormone (cortisol) and increasing production of the happiness hormone (serotonin);
- Alleviating anxiety, stress, depression;
- Relieving pain, effects of migraine.

As far as drug interactions are concerned, CBD, like any drug or other compound introduced into the body, can affect various metabolic pathways including those related to the drugs taken. If we do not know what effect they may have, it is necessary to consult a doctor to get reliable information on the subject. Despite the fact that oils have the health-promoting effects of CBD, and the safety during pregnancy is not fully studied, so it is recommended to avoid such products during this period. When using CBD for the first time, you should start with the lowest concentration and then observe your body. Many people use it to improve sleep quality and sometimes it can even cause excessive sleepiness. Additionally, when starting supplementation, CBD oils affect the cannabidiol system, which is also present in the salivary glands and this will result in a dry mouth feeling. However, this effect is usually short-lived and we can reduce the discomfort by regularly drinking water or another hydrating drink.
Is it possible to become addicted to CBD?
CBD oils are produced from a species of fibre hemp. The cannabidiol extracted from them has no psychoactive properties. The topic of CBD and addiction is often raised in questions in forums due to a lack of information on what substance is actually responsible for the narcotic effect, and this does not apply to every species of hemp. Such an effect is shown by THC, which is present in the oils in trace amounts which, according to the new law, cannot exceed 0.3 %. Thus, the use of CBD oils is completely safe and there is no risk of addiction. Of course, before starting supplementation, a doctor should be consulted to choose the right dose and concentration of CBD. This is because side effects are often associated with incorrect intake of the product. Cannabidiol oils, like any supplement or medication, cause changes in the body, so it is important to take them properly and observe how you react to them. Unwanted effects can therefore occur when taking too high a dose or when combined with other medicines. This is why it is so important to consult a specialist who will tell you how to introduce CBD oils into your supplementation in order to benefit fully from their beneficial effects.
