Even though CBD oil has become a widely popular way of treating various medical ailments, not everyone who uses the substance is knowledgeable about the properties that it contains. Thus, it is not widely understood whether or not you can take too much.

What happens if I take too much CBD oil?

Can You Overdose on CBD Oil?

The first thing to note is that it is impossible to overdose on CBD oil. A report on this subject by the World Health Organisation has concluded that CBD oil is relatively low in toxicity. The report also noted that extremely high doses would be required for any negative outcomes to be noted.

This particular report pointed to a level greater than 30 mg of CBD per kg orally daily and that this dosage must be continued for over 90 days. And this amount was associated with monkeys, not humans.

By comparison, an adult of 150lbs would need to quaff an entire bottle of this CBD oil substance, continually, for over three months! Not a very likely scenario, considering that one is only recommended to take 2-3 drops per day.

Side-Effects of Taking Too Much CBD

Nonetheless, it is still theoretically possible to take too much CBD oil. There has been an insignificant number of reports where people experienced side effects after taking too much CBD oil. This is extremely rare, and most people that use CBD oil will never have this experience, but it is worth noting.

Tightness, diarrhoea, and headaches have all been experienced by people that have taken too much CBD oil. If users fail to give the body time to adjust to the substance, there can be some negative consequences. Still, there is absolutely no danger in serious health issues, just as it is impossible to become addicted to CBD oil.

Should You Be Worried About Overdosing on CBD Oil?

In all of the medical literature, no individual has ever died from consuming too much of any cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant, it simply is not toxic enough to kill you unless you take almost impossible amounts of it. This doesn't mean that you should proceed without caution as people can still experience side effects from CBD oil, especially if you are sensitive to the substance.
