Is CBD Oil Legal?

Scientist holding cannabis leaf questioning is CBD oil legal

Is CBD Oil Legal? All you need to know:

While the use, manufacture and distribution of cannabis is illegal in the UK, CBD is legal. As long as it complies with current regulations, CBD can be manufactured and sold in the UK.

One main reason CBD is legal is because it doesn’t contain THC. THC is the psychoactive cannabinoid that causes you to get high after using cannabis. As well as numerous other cannabinoids, THC is strictly controlled in the UK via the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 and the Misuse of Drug Regulations Act 2001.

CBD is not listed as a controlled substance under the Misuse of Drugs Act. As long as a CBD product is produced using an EU approved strain of Hemp Plant, it’s legal for you to purchase and use in the UK.

Any CBD oil sold in the UK must have a THC content of 0.2% or less, which all of our products do.

Some forms of cannabis oil may contain above 0.2% THC, but these oils cannot be legally manufactured or sold in the UK. All our products are rigorously tested to ensure the THC levels are within the legal 0.2% limit.

Therefore, as long as a CBD oil product is between 0%-0.2%, it is legal in the UK. For more information on the benefits of CBD, check out our Benefits page to find out why CBD has gained so much popularity in recent health studies.

Benefits Of CBD


The Benefits Of CBD With Daily Use From Dr. Josh Axe

This video explains some of the benefits you may find when taking CBD daily. As CBD is in it’s early stages of medical research, no medicinal benefits can yet be claimed by those who produce and sell CBD. There are many consumers that claim CBD can help with a wide range of issues from pain relief, anxiety and even help skin conditions. We recommend that any one considering taking CBD should do some research and see for themselves the long list of benefits many swear by.

How CBD Actually Works

Unlike THC, CBD is not known to directly act upon CB1 and CB2 receptors. Rather, it is believed to influence receptor action by indirectly associating with behavioural neurotransmitters.

As a plant-based phytocannabinoid substance, CBD’s main role is believed to be in supporting the body’s endogenous (endocannabinoid) system, which is an innate molecular network that (amongst other things) helps to regulate various elements in the body.

Also, CBD is widely known to act on FAAH enzymes, which readily inhibit the function of CB1. For this reason, CBD is recognised as a powerful component able to reduce the psychoactive effects induced by THC.

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO) CBD is generally regarded as being safe and well-tolerated. In a general sense, it is also routinely used by healthy individuals to help provide the body with a state of balance and homeostasis.

CBD is known to interact with and mimic the effects of naturally-occurring receptors inside the body. These receptors have been found on essentially every cell type in the human body, which helps to explain the seemingly endless capabilities that the plant-based cannabinoid possesses.

How could CBD help people quit smoking?

We all know that when it comes to breaking a habit there’s no easy road; that’s why using CBD to quit smoking could be a game-changer. Quitting a long-term habit requires serious dedication, and almost always requires help — like replacing the poor habit with a healthier one, or using a patch or gum.

First, you are able to replace the negative, debilitating, toxic habit of smoking with a natural alternative: your CBD oil. One option is even to vape the CBD oil, as some studies suggest the similarities in vaping and smoking are enough to compensate for the smoking habit and curb the desire.

Second, one of the best ways to break a habit is to remove the environment that triggers the habit. Simply put, if being stressed causes you to reach for a cigarette, treat the stress and that desire to smoke will go away.

And since CBD is most commonly used as a treatment for stress, and has been known to help calm both it and anxiety, you are getting the bonus of replacing the habit while removing the trigger.

Third, CBD can assist in soothing some of the most common side effects that come with quitting smoking — making it an ideal companion to help you truly quit. For example, since nicotine releases serotonin, the time between and while quitting cigarettes often emphasizes the sluggishness, stress, and depression that comes with a dip in serotonin. But CBD oil also has the ability to trigger the release of serotonin so it can calm the stress, anxiety, and irritability, making it easier to say no to the desire to smoke.


CBD E-liquid is similar to regular E-liquids in that it is often composed of propylene glycol-PG, and vegetable glycerine-VG, with the active ingredient in this instance being CBD rather than nicotine. These mixtures may be used in regular vape pens or mods without any problems.

However, if the CBD is diluted in an oil, rather than the alcohol of PG and VG, then a specialised device will be required to enable effective vaping. The oils used are often hemp oil, but maybe other oils such as coconut oil.

If you want to use your regular vape device, then you will need CBD Vape Juice not CBD oil. CBD oil vaporises at around 200ºC.

When you begin vaping, it is usually recommended that you choose an E-liquid that contains nicotine closest to the amount you smoke and slowly work your way down from this.

CBD and muscle recovery


CBD Muscle Recovery: Have you ever been in the middle of a workout, run, swim, or hike and realized how badly your muscles were going to hurt the next day — or three? 

Some people prefer to take different pills to prevent it from happening. No doubt, there are medications and supplements that are able to relieve pain, but are you sure they are harmless?

We are happy to tell you that you have another option. A lot of people that had either examined CBD in labs or people that picked up CBD infused products and gave them a try, belief in genuinely amazing properties of CBD.

There are several pieces of evidence that CBD influences suppressing cytokine, chemokine, and T-regulatory cell production, which in turn affects the acceleration of the recovery process.

What Causes Muscle Pain?

While working out when you exert pressure on your muscles, there is microscopic damage to millions of tiny proteins that form your cells. This leads to inflammation and causes pain. This is referred to as Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS), and it occurs the next day after a workout. Further, we have elaborated on how to speed up muscle recovery using CBD.

CBD relaxes muscle tissue 

CBD may relieve acute pain in the muscles

CBD reduces inflammation

CBD improves sleep quality 

CBD may enhance satellite cell differentiation in the muscles 

CBD may support protein synthesis by reducing cortisol levels

There are different ways in which CBD can be consumed or used for medicinal benefits and this has been modulated into numerous forms. Some of these forms include;

Smoked or Vaped; possibly the most common mode of using cannabis around though health effects on the lungs with respect to fumes has to be considered as well.

Consumables; CBD has been incorporated into edibles that can easily be taken and consumed without the health risks associated with smoking or vaping.

Topically; lotions, oils, creams, and ointments containing CBD are easily applied topically on the site of stress and inflammation to account for local relief from pain.

Supplements; CBD has also been incorporated into tinctures and capsules that can easily be used the way normal medical supplements are taken to further promote health balance.

We hope that this article was able to help you clarify the effectiveness of CBD for muscle recovery. If you are wondering how to take CBD oil, then the dosage of cannabis varies from one person to the other. Therefore, consult a doctor or certified medical professional to find out what the right dosage is for you.

CBD Frequency: How Long Does CBD Last ?

CBD time

CBD Frequency: How Long Does CBD Last? On average, experts say the effects of most CBD doses last from 2-4 hours. Of course just because you don’t necessarily feel anything strongly doesn’t mean the cannabinoid isn’t working nor has it exited your system. The human body stores CBD just like any other substance, and it naturally depletes as it is expelled.  

Everyone has unique body chemistry, which would explain why CBD and other active substances can affect people differently. Your metabolism, water content, body mass index, and diet can also influence how long CBD will stay in your system.

As for how long CBD takes to exit the human body, most experts site three to four days at maximum. It is reasonable however to assume that edibles like CBD gummies may take longer to process and exit due to digestive absorption.


Some people are generally more active than others. They walk around, are always up and down, and maybe even work out in the gym, while others tend to sit for long hours at a time, and rarely complete intense exercise.

Those who work out would burn fat faster than those who regularly don’t work out. In this way, CBD in the body of an active person will be burned with the fat at a quicker rate as they go about their day, thus making it stay in the body for a shorter period of time.

The food we eat also affects the amount of time CBD spends in our system, as fiber-rich diets facilitate the digestion of extra fats in the body, and CBD as well.

 CBD Frequency of consumption

Taking CBD daily will affect how long it stays in your system. If you take it only once in a while when required, the chances are that you will not have it in your system for very long after, and you will be free from it in around three days. Daily consumption, however, increases the time it takes to have your body free from it, going as long as seven days to clear out of your system completely.

Can CBD get you through your hangovers ?


Incorporating CBD with hangovers: In an already under-researched area, potential as a hangover cure is not a main priority for CBD research – let’s be reasonable. However, there is a growing catalogue of anecdotal evidence that Cannabidiol could be the answer to restoring you to yourself, whatever that may be, more quickly. 

  Since CBD is a known neuroprotectant and antioxidant, consuming CBD oil in the morning might add some much-needed vitamins back into your body and help flush out those hangover-inducing toxins like acetaldehyde.

CBD oil offers the ability to provide relief in hangover headache without giving a numb sensation that you can encounter in THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). Plus, it does not offer the risk of addiction that you can encounter in other Cannabis like marijuana. 

The human body contains cannabinoid receptors; these receptors are of two types CB1 and CB2. These receptors are responsible for the functioning of proper health operations such as pain, metabolism, and sleep pattern of the individual. 

However, consumption of alcohol can greatly damage the functionality of these operations. Furthermore, overconsumption of alcoholic beverages can also lead to imbalance in hormones and can also damage the cannabinoid receptors of the body.

CBD oil is scientifically proven to improve the functioning of the human body by interacting with the cannabinoid receptors and also helps in balancing the hormones of the body.

CBD oil helps in the treatment of various effects that you can experience from hangovers. These effects may be temporary but they sure can take a toll on your body and can be really uncomfortable and irritating on occasions.

CBD For Children

When parents think about the use of CBD for their kids, they automatically reject the idea thinking their child is taking ‘drugs’ or getting ‘high’. This is simply not the case, CBD is only one of many compounds that are found in the cannabis plant.

Something that is already known is that children first come into contact with cannabinoids immediately after being born. They receive them via their mother’s milk and they are therefore of vital importance for survival.

Cannabinoids have a key role in establishing the working of our bodies and balancing bodily functions such as sleep, memory, appetite, and mood, among others.

If we use a simile, it could be said that cannabinoids are our bodies’ ‘conductor’. They take care of communication between cells, and help maintain the body’s balance.

Thanks to the role of cannabinoids, immediately after birth babies are already able to perceive the needs (hunger, sleep…) that are essential for their survival.

Not only is CBD safe, it’s safer than a lot of things on the high street that your child will take at some point in their lives including paracetamol.

CBD and autism

Autism is a complex disorder that affects most areas of development and prevents children from progressing and developing in the way that these processes take place in neurotypical children.

It mainly manifests itself as changed behaviour in the area of social interaction, and verbal and non-verbal communication. It encompasses a wide spectre of disorders of varying forms.

Researchers in the area of CBD cannabinoids and autism have come up with findings that indicate that the use of cannabinoids can help to alleviate the condition. They found a connection between autism and the cannabinoid receptor CB2, which is located in the endocannabinoid system and which provides great hope in the continued treatment of the syndrome.

My CBD Dosage

analysis blackboard board bubble

Since there is no universal dosage for CBD, finding the right one for you isn’t an easy task. There are a number of factors that go into determining your personal dosage to get the results you are seeking from CBD. Some of these major factors include:

  • CBD strength
  • Delivery method
  • Body weight
  • Body chemistry
  • Severity of condition

In addition, cannabidiol acts on multiple molecular pathways in the body, so everyone’s experience will be different based on the factors listed above, according to experiments conducted at King’s College London. In this guide, we will show you how these variables play a role in determining how much CBD you should take.

How much CBD should I take?

There is no direct answer to that question, but delivery method of CBD plays an important role in determining dosage. Each delivery method has its own unique potential for your body to absorb the cannabinoids. This is a concept known as bioavailability, which we explain in greater detail below.

Before you can determine your CBD dosage, you will need to know exactly how much CBD you are getting in the first place, expressed in milligrams (mg) on the label. This can be confirmed by looking at lab test reports for the product to make sure they contain the exact amount of CBD as advertised.

You can always experiment with slightly higher or lower potencies until you find what works best.

The thing about CBD is that it’s not exactly cheap, and taking an excessive dose isn’t necessarily going to provide any additional benefits. On the flip side, if you’re not taking enough, you might not even notice the benefits, which can be just as much of a waste of money. Here are some of the most common ways of taking CBD, and how to determine your dosage for each one.

For CBD oil and tinctures.

CBD oils are oil-based tinctures that are taken sublingually, which means taken under the tongue. They are not the same formula used for vaping—we can’t stress this enough. However, finding your dosage is actually a very similar process. The graphic above can also be applied to CBD oil dosages.

First, you’ll need to divide the total amount of CBD per bottle by the size of the bottle in mL. This will give you the amount of CBD per mL, which is an important number to know. Most CBD bottles come with a dropper that is designed to pull exactly 1 mL of liquid when you squeeze the rubber bulb. Some bottles will actually have the measurements in mL on the dropper itself for added precision. Once you know how much CBD is in each mL, you’ll know how much to take. A 1 mL dropper holds approximately 20 drops of liquid. If you really want to get technical, you can divide the mg/mL by 20 to get the amount of CBD in each drop, but it’s not necessary to count each drop.

Tip: Hold the CBD oil tincture under your tongue for at least 15-30 seconds before swallowing so that it gets absorbed into the blood vessels. Otherwise it will have to pass through your digestive tract.

For CBD edibles and capsules

CBD edibles and CBD capsules are similar in their effectiveness in that they both must pass through the digestive tract. For this reason, your ideal dosage for capsules and edibles are going to be similar. One of the biggest advantages of these delivery methods is that they utilize predetermined doses.

Most of them state the exact amount of CBD per gummy or per capsule. If by some chance it only states the total amount of CBD, then you can just divide that by the number of gummies or capsules per bottle. This will tell you exactly how much CBD is in each one, which is essential for figuring out how many and how often you should be taking them, based on your individual needs.

Recommended dosages for CBD

Keep in mind, your dosage is subject to change based on the condition you are trying to treat. Also, these dosages are for taking CBD orally, so if you’re vaping it, you might not need as much due to the higher bioavailability of vaped CBD. Here are a few recommended doses:

Increase appetite in cancer patients – 2.5 mg CBD (best when combined at a 1:1 ratio with THC, if it’s available where you live)

Chronic pain – 2.5-20 mg CBD

Epilepsy – 200-300 mg CBD

Sleep disorders – 40-160 mg CBD

Social anxiety – 40-300 mg

Use this guide as a reference, but keep in mind that finding your dosage typically may also require some trial and error. You may also want to consult your doctor if you are using CBD for medicinal benefits, especially if you’re taking medication.

CBD And Epilepsy – What Do The Studies Say?

A CBD product is available on prescription in the UK for two specific types of epilepsy, called Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome. For a drug to be made available on prescription there has to be scientific data concluding that not only does the substance help with the condition, but it does so without producing any unwelcome side-effects.

Examples of some studies conducted are:

  • A 2017 study concluded that CBD reduced the number of seizures in drug-resistant patients suffering from Dravet’s syndrome.
  • A 2019 study concluded that CBD is completely safe for use in patients with Dravet’s syndrome and effectively reduced the number of seizures suffered by patients who previously were unresponsive to other treatments.
  • A 2019 study concludes that CBD significantly reduces seizures in patients with both Dravet’s syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut’s syndrome.
  • A 2018 study also demonstrated seizure reduction but also advised that further research is needed to understand how CBD controls the seizures. This is to help determine whether tolerance is built up to CBD over time, which is unknown.

CBD For Epilepsy – Is It A Cure?

CBD effectively reduces the seizures suffered by people with epilepsy and it certainly increases their quality of life. Unfortunately, there is no known cure to fully prevent seizures as a result of epilepsy.

Because seizures with Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome are particularly severe, CBD is being used as a medication to be taken several times a day, with or without the current threat of a seizure.

It seems that CBD will be utilised as a long-term treatment to reduce seizures in conjunction with other pharmaceutical medications to prevent tolerance build-up to medications.

CBD And Seizures – What Are The Benefits?

There is currently a wide range of pharmaceutical medications available in the UK that reduce seizures, so why has CBD become so popular?

It seems to be because CBD:-

  • Causes little to no tolerance
  • Is a natural compound
  • Has few side effects

Little to No Tolerance

CBD doesn’t directly bind to the receptors of the ECS, so it doesn’t build up a tolerance in the same way other medications do, meaning that it can be used for long-term treatment.

Natural Compound

Although being a natural compound doesn’t automatically qualify something as being safe; CBD is extracted from a cannabis plant as opposed to being made artificially in a lab.

Fewer Side Effects

Although CBD does have side-effects, they are only apparent in a small amount of patients and they are much less severe than most other medication used to treat epilepsy. It’s clear that the benefits of CBD far outweigh the negative side effects.

Key Takeaways

CBD is not a cure for epilepsy, but it is by far the best treatment out there for a good proportion of patients in controlling the symptoms.

If you looking for more information on how to find out your optimum dosage for epilepsy treatment, check out our CBD dosage guide! However, CBD is only currently being used in treating epilepsy when other forms of pharmaceutical medication have failed.

Further research is needed into how effective as a long-term treatment, and once this is completed we may begin to see CBD as the first port of call for more epilepsy patients.

CBD Myths

Even though CBD is now a household name around the country, there’s still a lot that people don’t understand about this non-intoxicating cannabinoid.

In some cases, myths and misconceptions can add to the mysterious allure of a substance or topic, but the myths surrounding CBD continue to lead consumers astray. In this list, we’ll cover 10 of the most prevalent CBD myths and provide facts that unveil the truth.

  1. CBD Comes From Weed

Most people now understand that CBD is different from THC, but it’s still a common misconception that THC and CBD come from the same source. While THC-rich cannabis can contain small amounts of CBD, most CBD on the market comes from Cannabis sativa with less than 0.3% THC, which is usually called industrial hemp.

While intoxicating marijuana and non-intoxicating hemp are both forms of the Cannabis sativa plant, they have been bred to express different cannabinoids. CBD is not just another form of “weed,” and it contains negligible amounts of THC.

  1. CBD Converts Into THC

Even though they recognize the profound differences between CBD and THC, many people still believe that CBD can convert to THC in your digestive system. This idea isn’t entirely off base since the acid forms of cannabinoids, such as CBDa and THCa, do convert into their neutral cannabinoid forms upon the application of heat.

CBD does not, however, convert into THC under any circumstances. These cannabinoids have entirely different chemical structures, and to convert one into the other, it would be necessary to alter molecules one at a time using state-of-the-art lab equipment. Regardless of how you use CBD, you don’t have to worry about it transforming into intoxicating THC after this cannabinoid enters your system.

  1. CBD Will Make You Fail A Drug Test

Like many myths, this CBD misconception contains a seed of fact at its core. CBD itself will not make you fail a drug test, but some CBD products contain small amounts of THC, which could show up in urinalysis or other types of drug testing.

There are no drug tests in existence that test specifically for CBD, so if you use CBD isolate or another type of cannabidiol extract that contains undetectable levels of THC, there is no chance that you will fail a drug test. If you consume high quantities of CBD products that contain up to 0.3% THC, however, there’s a small chance that enough CBD will accumulate in your system to cause you to test positive for THC when drug tested.

  1. CBD Is A Scam

We’ll be the first to admit that there are some undoubtedly shady sides of the CBD industry. Especially in the first few years that CBD was on the market, unscrupulous entrepreneurs took advantage of consumer ignorance to sell sub-par products at sky-high prices.

Just because a few bad apples took advantage of consumer interest in a new product type, however, doesn’t mean that CBD itself is a scam. Plenty of honest CBD producers do their best to keep their prices low and offer as much value as possible. Calling these reliable entrepreneurs scammers would be the same as declaring the entire modern system of commodity sales a scam.

  1. CBD Doesn’t Work

Some people believe that because CBD has occupied a unique regulatory status for so long not enough studies have been done to determine if this cannabinoid has any benefits. While it’s certainly true that CBD isn’t a miracle cure and that it isn’t the answer to every disease on the planet, the medical benefits of CBD have been thoroughly demonstrated in a wide variety of peer-reviewed studies.

There’s still a lot we need to learn to determine the exact benefits of CBD and discover which conditions this cannabinoid is best at treating. It’s also a fact, however, that a CBD product has been FDA-approved as a drug treatment for epilepsy, so saying that CBD doesn’t work for any conditions flies in the face of the entire modern medical model.

  1. CBD Isn’t Psychoactive

In the early days of the CBD industry, it was common to see CBD referred to as “non-psychoactive” since this cannabinoid doesn’t get you high or cause any of the other hallmark effects of THC. Recently, however, we’ve discovered that this term doesn’t reflect the effects of CBD as accurately as we’d like.

While it’s true that CBD isn’t intoxicating, it does cause certain psychotropic effects. For instance, most people who use CBD report that this cannabinoid causes a calming, relaxing sensation, which couldn’t be the work of a non-psychoactive substance. Therefore, it’s more accurate to refer to CBD as “non-intoxicating” instead of calling this cannabinoid “non-psychoactive.”

  1. CBD Is Legalized By State Marijuana Laws (not UK relevent)

Recently, quite a few states across the nation have legalized recreational marijuana, which is defined as cannabis products containing THC as their dominant cannabinoid. Just because your state has legalized recreational marijuana, however, doesn’t necessarily mean that it has also legalized CBD.

Some states, such as Texas, have legalized CBD without legalizing recreational marijuana. Other states, like California, have legalized recreational marijuana without legalizing CBD.

While the federal government has clearly removed CBD from the DEA’s definition of marijuana, states may view CBD and THC differently. Make sure to look into your state and local laws to learn all the details regarding CBD and THC legislation in your area.

  1. CBD Requires A Prescription

Some people who would otherwise gladly use CBD refrain from doing so because they believe that this cannabinoid can only be prescribed by a medical doctor. On the contrary, CBD products are widely available for sale in all 50 states from distributors located all around the country.

The main reason for this popular CBD misconception is the existence of Epidiolex, the world’s first CBD-based prescription drug. While it is necessary to receive a doctor’s recommendation to purchase Epidiolex, this rule does not apply to CBD products that are not branded as Epidiolex. Medical doctors are, in fact, incapable of prescribing CBD products aside from Epidiolex since they are not considered to be prescription drugs.

  1. CBD Is Always More Effective In Higher Doses

There are two common misconceptions regarding proper doses for CBD. Some people believe that CBD is equally effective no matter how much of this substance you take, and others are under the impression that CBD becomes more effective the more of it you ingest.

Since CBD doses as high as 1,500mg per day have been well-tolerated in clinical studies, there doesn’t appear to be any significant reason you shouldn’t take CBD in high quantities. Research has also shown, however, that CBD remains effective at doses of 200mg per day or less, indicating that there’s no compelling reason to ingest huge amounts of this cannabinoid. It’s also worth noting that unless you use full-spectrum or broad-spectrum CBD, this cannabinoid becomes less effective at extremely high doses, so it might be best to use CBD in moderation.

  1. CBD Is More Effective In Isolate Form

There’s a common misconception regarding many different natural substances that they are more useful in their sanitized, isolated, or synthetic forms. In almost every case, however, the most natural forms of substances are also the most beneficial, and this principle certainly holds true for CBD.

As we mentioned above, CBD isolate performs worse than full-spectrum or broad-spectrum CBD at higher doses, and isolating CBD doesn’t even make this substance purer or safer. Even isolate CBD can contain THC, pesticides, heavy metals, or other contaminants, so the best way to produce high-potency, high-quality CBD is to grow hemp organically and use safe solvent-free extraction methods.

Cannabidiol (CBD) has been scientifically accredited with a host of therapeutic qualities and potential applications. However, as is the case for every consumable compound, it is crucial to understand if there are any potential dangers associated with accidental overdose. After all, even water can be lethal if too much is consumed within too short of a period. So what then is the case for CBD? Can you overdose on CBD oil?

While CBD products won’t get you high or lead to a fatal overdose, it’s still possible to take too much CBD and experience a few side effects.

CBD is well tolerated by most people. It’s considered a safe supplement. Most unpleasant experiences with cannabis occur due to the overconsumption of THC-dominant products — not CBD.

Most of the time, too high doses of CBD will result in dry mouth and lethargy. Although the risk of overdosing on CBD is low, the potential adverse effects include:

  • Dry mouth
  • A temporary drop in blood pressure
  • Drowsiness
  • Sedation
  • Changes in appetite
  • Diarrhea

So, how much is too much CBD?

Again, that depends on factors like your weight and unique body chemistry. As with any health supplement, people will respond differently to different doses. You can follow the recommended serving size indicated on the CBD bottle. Start low and slow, gradually increasing the amount until you feel the difference.

Can You Develop a Tolerance to CBD?

One primary reason for the dangers associated with virtually every pharmaceutical prescription medication is directly related to tolerance development. The human body quickly becomes accustomed to the drug’s presence. It adapts accordingly, making what was once an ideal dose no longer sufficient for therapeutic relief, resulting in self-increased dose strengths despite potential threats of lethality.

As it relates to CBD, very few consumers have claimed the need to increase dose strength due to the development of tolerance. However, most do not experience this problem, as supported by several CBD-focused studies.

Bottom Line: Can You Overdose on CBD Oil?

Considering zero cases of fatal overdoses to this day, it’s very unlikely that you overdose on taking too much CBD oil. However, keep in mind that the CBD market is largely unregulated and not all products are created equal. In fact, there’s a large degree of difference when it comes to the quality of CBD extracts being sold over the counter.

Although it’s rather impossible to overdose on taking too much CBD oil, there are a few side effects that may occur upon taking too much CBD at a time. Thankfully, these side effects are very mild and nearly nonexistent in regular doses. We always advise our customers to take CBD oil responsibly in order to maximize the benefits and avoid the above reactions.
