If you begin to notice any negative or unusual side effects, reduce your dosage or stop taking CBD right away. The most commonly reported side effects associated with CBD are drowsiness or dizziness, changes in mood, and upset stomach. It’s always a beneficial idea to talk with your doctor before you begin using CBD products!
