Gynecologists of famous medical institutes have reported that they prescribe CBD oil for women who deal with menstrual cramps.
Side Effects Of Using Hemp-Derived Products
Even though hemp products serve a lot of benefits, it also has its fair share of side effects. There is a flip side to the coin as well.
Can Be Addictive
We do not condone the use of hemp-derived products on a daily basis as they can be addictive. Hemp in itself is non-addictive, but the Fact is that consuming hemp makes you feel very good, and you can easily get addicted to that feeling, which is why we do not recommend using hemp on a day-to-day basis.
Not To Be Taken During Pregnancy
CBD products are not meant to be taken while you are pregnant. As while you are pregnant, a lot of hormonal changes happen in your body. CBD does not perform that well when a woman is pregnant and can cause brain damage to the baby she is carrying. We do not recommend using hemp-derived CBD products during pregnancy.
Precautions While Taking Hemp-Derived CBD Products
There are a lot of things to be aware of while taking CBD Products.
Not To Be Consumed By Children
People over the age of 18 can indulge in smoking CBD Products. CBD is strictly meant for adults. The reason why it should not be consumed by children is that the brain of a child is not developed. Hemp can permanently cause brain damage to children.
Some people are allergic to Cannabis, so people with cannabis allergy should skip hemp-derived CBD products. There are reports that many people ended up in hospitals after taking a dose of hemp-derived CBD oil.
Their faces were all swollen, and they reported that they felt like they were dying. If you are allergic, you cannot consume CBD products.
You should never consume CBD products before or after major surgery. There is a lot of protein in hemp, and it can lower blood pressure which is probably the last thing you would want during surgery. We would recommend you stop taking hemp-derived products at least two weeks prior to surgery.
