While CBD is a safe and well-tolerated compound, you can have too much of a good thing.
Luckily, the adverse effects of taking too much CBD wear off as soon as it’s out of your system (3–5 hours). However, it’s still important to know the signs of ingesting too much CBD, so you know your limit and avoid unnecessary discomfort.
The adverse effects of taking too much CBD include:
- Changes in appetite
If you’re thinking about trying CBD for the first time, we recommend consulting with your healthcare professional to reduce the chances of negative interactions with medication. As a general rule of thumb, you always want to start on the lower end of dosing and work your way up so you don’t over-do it.
Some people find it helpful to write down their doses and how they feel in a journal or the notes app on their phone and adjust their doses until the desired effects are reached.
