CBD is a short name for cannabidiol, one of the main active ingredients found in cannabis (marijuana). Unlike THC it does not cause a “high” and is absolutely safe to use. According to a report from the World Health Organization, "In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential…. To date, there is no evidence of public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD."

Is it safe?

According to most recent research it is safe to use by most healthy people, including children. There are very few possible side effects, like nausea, fatigue and irritability, but they are very rare and don’t cause any real danger. Cannabidiol can increase the level of blood thinning and other medicines in your blood by competing for the liver enzymes that break down these drugs. Grapefruit has a similar effect with certain medicines.  

People taking high doses of CBD may show abnormalities in liver related blood tests. Many non-prescription drugs, such as acetaminophen (Tylenol), have this same effect. So, you should let your doctor know if you are regularly using products containing cannabidiol.
