The study authors report that CBD had powerful anxiety-relieving effects in animal research. But the results weren't what you'd expect.

Dosage and Preparation

CBD is the short name for cannabidiol , one of the two chemicals in cannabis with the most health benefits. The other chemical is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

Common side effects include:

CBD oil contains CBD mixed with a base (carrier) oil, like coconut oil or hemp seed oil. The bottled CBD oil is called a tincture and is sold in different concentrations.

Possible Side Effects

CBD oil may also increase liver enzymes (a marker of liver inflammation). People with liver disease should consult their healthcare provider before taking CBD oil and use it with caution. Regular blood liver enzyme level checks are recommended.

You might experience nausea, diarrhea, or dizziness when you take CBD oil. Don't take CBD oil if you're pregnant or breastfeeding. Also, CBD oil affects the way your body breaks down certain drugs, so talk to your healthcare provider if you're on any medications.
