CBD oil is still the backbone of the hemp supplement industry. But the problem with ingesting CBD is that it may not sit well. This could lead to side-effects that make it difficult - or impossible - to keep taking the product.

Are there CBD oil alternatives that won't have side effects? Yes, but there are benefits and drawbacks.

Alternatives to CBD Oil With No Side Effects?

The amazing thing about CBD is that there are many ways to use it, each with its own set of advantages and disadvantages.

Unfortunately, most CBD gets into your bloodstream, either through direct ingestion, smoking, or vaping. As long as there's CBD circulating in your body, it can cause side effects.

CBD topicals are the only products that won't cause any of the side effects above.

Shop Smart

CBD products can have side effects for a slew of reasons. Most are due to the risks of a largely unregulated market. Consequently, contamination from chemical pesticides and herbicides is possible.

There could also be more THC than advertised on the bottle. This happens due to sloppy extraction or poor (if any) testing. When you shop around, look for vendors with some of the following features:

  • Organic, Certified Organic, or "organically-grown"
  • No chemical pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers
  • 3rd party-tested (with results available)
  • All-natural
  • No added terpenes
  • Money-back guarantee


If topicals work well for your symptoms, then that's fantastic. But when CBD oil is your only choice, choosing a new company could be all you need to do.

If you plan on taking CBD or experience any concerning side effects, talk to your doctor immediately.
