When You Should STOP Taking CBD – CBD Instead

When You Should STOP Taking CBD

Published on

 Here at CBD Instead, of course we want everyone to enjoy the benefits of CBD hemp oil. With all the information we know, why wouldn’t we want to scream from the rooftops, “THIS CAN MAKE YOUR PAIN GO AWAY!”? However, we know that CBD isn’t right for everyone. And you should be aware of it, too. There are side effects that you could experience that could be harmful to your health.

One thing CBD is so well known for is how well tolerated it is. There has never been a single overdose of medical marijuana, which says a lot for this medication! But everybody is different, and every body is different. Though these risks are rare, it’s still important to be well aware of all possible outcomes when it comes to your health.

When Taking Medication

Not every medication is compatible with CBD. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms you should discontinue use of CBD and talk to your doctor about what steps you should take. You can either adjust your current medication, discontinue your medication if CBD works well enough for you to replace it, or stop taking CBD altogether.

Increased Symptoms

CBD can make matters worse by changing the way your body processes medicine. If your body eats it up and disperses it into your body slower or faster than usual, it can cause your symptoms to get worse and for you to experience more uncomfortable side-effects.

Increase In Side Effects

Some of CBD’s side effects can be similar to the ones you get from your current medication. If these side effects happen at the same time, they can get worse. If things like this are happening with or without CBD oil you should be talking to your doctor about it. The goal is to get you happy and healthy at as little cost as possible.

Without Taking Medication

You don’t have to be taking medication to have adverse reactions to CBD. Our bodies are made of billions and billions of cells making up organs and skin tissue and brain matter, if any two bodies were the same, it would be a scientific anomaly. Even twins have different fingerprints! Here are some side effects that can get out of hand if you don’t pay attention to what your body is trying to tell you.

Excessive Dry Mouth

Some people take CBD to increase their appetite from unwanted weight loss. Having excessive dry mouth can make eating even more unappetizing than it was before. If you are experiencing this symptom and it lasts throughout the day, it is going to make getting to a healthy weight more difficult.

Low Blood Pressure

Low blood pressure can feel like extreme lightheadedness, dizziness, and can even cause fainting. This can sometimes only happen when you get up too fast from sitting or lying down or get to the point it happens even staying still.



If you find that when you take CBD without taking any other medication, and you doze off or feel confused, you should stop taking the medication and consult with a doctor. It isn’t safe to drive, cook, or care for children in a state where you aren’t fully aware. Usually, CBD oil makes you alert and attentive, but not everyone reacts the same.

Even though CBD comes from a plant and is a natural alternative medicine that can be more effective than leading pharmaceuticals, it is still a chemical. Just like soda, lettuce, peanuts and our clothes, they have chemical reactions. It is always suggested to speak with a doctor before taking medication that can alter your body in any way. You only get one; you have to make sure you’re putting the right stuff in it. If CBD is the right stuff, come check out our shop! We have great high-quality products that can get you on your way to a healthier and happier you.

  • This is something you should definitely consult your doctor with. Many people have developed tinnitus in their ears from taking Sertraline, is this what you are experiencing? CBD has shown to reduce symptoms of tinnitus, yet there still needs to be more testing done to proclaim it as a treatment. Going off of these types of medications like Sertraline without weaning yourself off or with the help of a doctor can also make symptoms worse. Hope this helped!
