Common safety concerns about CBD oil

The legal status of cannabidiol 

Yes, CBD is legal!

The legality of cannabidiol products is unclear for many of our readers. Our webshop receives many emails from confused customers who have concerns about the legal status of CBD products. Finding trustworthy and appropriate information on the topic can be really challenging. Dozens of cannabidiol blogs have misinforming articles which portray CBD in a false manner.

Purchasing, possessing and consuming hemp-based, cannabidiol products in the United Kingdom is legal.  CBDOilStore UK offers only certified and safe products which have no tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content. As a proof for the legal status of our CBD-containing food supplements, check out this attached confirmation letter that we got from the Home Office. Food supplements with cannabidiol content are not covered by the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 or the Misuse of Drugs Regulations 2001, therefore they are not considered to be illegal.

Can CBD oil get you high?

No, you cannot get high on CBD.

Our CBD products have virtually 0% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content.  THC is the main psychoactive ingredient in the cannabis sativa plant. While THC has severe mind-altering effects and it changes the perception of reality, CBD is a non-psychoactive substance. Therefore getting high on CBD is impossible.

 Side Effects of Cannabidiol (CBD) Oil

CBD is safe to consume.

A small minority of people who are interested in CBD consumption have concerns about the potential side effects which come with administering cannabidiol. Does keeping yourself away from CBD products a good idea due to its potential side effects? Will you experience any negative side effects if you take a couple of CBD pills a day?CBD might cause unwanted symptoms like:

  • tiredness,
  • diarrhea,
  • changes in appetite
  • and weight changes.

These unwanted symptoms sometimes can occur and they are often dosage-dependent.  Based on the finding of a recent scientific research, which was conducted by the nova-Institut, in 2017, the usage of CBD-containing medicine probably has a milder side effect profile compared to conventional drugs.1

“In general, the often described favorable safety profile of CBD in humans was confirmed and extended by the reviewed research. The majority of studies were performed for treatment of epilepsy and psychotic disorders. Here, the most commonly reported side effects were tiredness, diarrhea, and changes in appetite/weight. In comparison with other drugs, used for the treatment of these medical conditions, CBD has a better side effect profile. This could improve patients’ compliance and adherence to treatment. CBD is often used as adjunct therapy.”1
