CBD has very few known adverse side effects at any dose. THC in high doses can make a person feel very weird for a while, but there are no known fatalities from overdosing on cannabis, as there are for many pharmaceutical drugs.

Many studies prove the effectiveness of CBD treatment of various conditions, and most conclude that it is safe and virtually free of side effects. A 2011 review paper concluded that, although further testing is needed, controlled cannabidiol administration appears to be relatively safe and nontoxic in humans and animals, without affecting food intake or physiological parameters like heart rate, body temperature, or blood pressure. According to the research review, high doses of up to 1,500 mg/day of CBD seem to be well tolerated in humans.

Cannabis products containing THC, the compound responsible for the “high” associated with cannabis, have more contraindications and cautions associated with them. We will cover these below as well, since most products contain at least a small amount of THC, and some have higher ratios. It’s important to note that, while most people do not experience the side effects

CBD associated with THC when taking CBD-dominant products (defined in this book as 20:1 ratio or higher), some patients may be sensitive to small amounts. For this reason, it is recommended to always start with a micro dose and go up from there until symptoms subside.
