Is CBD addictive? Understanding CBD side effects

As more people discover how beneficial CBD oil products can be, a certain number of misconceptions also arise. Such a powerful, natural, and versatile product probably does seem too good to be true, but it is very much true.

This guide dispels some myths, so you don’t miss out on the relaxing and life-changing benefits of CBD oil.

Is CBD Addictive?

No. CBD has no psychotropic effects, such as a “high” or unnatural improvement in mood or feelings that can cause dependence.

Various cannabinoids like cannabidiol (CBD) stimulate the endocannabinoid receptors in our bodies and can cause an amazing array of positive benefits. They do this by encouraging our bodies to do things they naturally do, not by doing anything artificial.

Pure CBD isolate, which is used in all of OTO's CBD products, is completely legal and non-addictive. More so, it will not get you high.

Does CBD Make You Feel Intoxicated?

Once again, nope! Studies have shown that when testing for signs of intoxication, CBD showed the same results as a placebo.

Participants were asked to self-report their feelings of intoxication. Those given THC reported feelings of euphoria and sedation while those given CBD or a placebo reported no intoxicating feelings. This is because CBD doesn’t affect receptors that produce any intoxicating effects.

CBD helps your body to better regulate itself, which can have a positive effect on your sleep, skin and mood - just to name a few.

Can You Overdose on CBD?

Don’t worry - you can’t overdose on CBD. Much like a vitamin, your body is built to process CBD, so your body will naturally flush out any excess CBD that it doesn’t need.

While you can’t overdose on CBD, we suggest an optimum daily intake of 40-60mg. You should start to notice the full benefits after taking this amount consistently for 3-4 days.

Side Effects of CBD

There are no recorded side effects for lifestyle doses of CBD.

The Benefits of CBD Oil

Because CBD interacts with multiple receptor systems in the brain and body, it poses a wide range of potential benefits. It can help us to maintain balance and stability with regards to mood, sleep cycles, metabolism, stress, and more.


People frequently use CBD oil products to

  • Relax and reduce anxiety
  • Improve sleep
  • Increase focus during the day
  • Improve a variety of skin conditions
  • Improve mood

Key Takeaways

Scientists are blown away by the potential benefits of CBD oil, and as they continue their research, more evidence and more guarantees will probably emerge.

Do start with the recommended daily dose and remember to always listen to your body. You know what’s best.
