Confirmations of the Safety of CBD
The safety of the products that we sell is of upmost importance to us at Ology Essentials. We know it matters to you and your family too. In 2011 Mateus Machado Bergamashci completed a comprehensive survey of the safety and side effects of CBD. Bergamashci found that CBD is safe for humans and animals.
Iffland Kerstin and Grotenhermen Franjo from the German research center nova-Institut set out to expand on Bergamaschci’s findings with a new comprehensive study, An Update on Safety and Side Effects of Cannabidiol: A Review of Clinical Data and Relevant Animal Studies. Kerstin and Franjo’s studies found that CBD had no adverse effect on blood pressure, heart rate, body temperature, glucose levels, pH, pressure exerted by carbon dioxide or oxygen, hematocrits, gastrointestinal transit, emesis, rectal temperature, potassium and sodium levels, no reparatory depression or cardiovascular complications. The study also found that even chronic use of CBD in humans caused no neurological, psychiatric, or clinical adverse effects.
In even more positive news the new study found CBD is potentially beneficial in the treatment of heroin addiction, reducing seizures, managing psychosis, inhibiting cancer, and reducing anxiety. They also found that cannabinoid has immunomodulatory and neuroprotective properies. This is of no surprise since the American government has obtained a patent already on cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants.
Regarding the treatment of epilepsy and psychotic disorders Kerstin and Franjo concluded, “In comparison with other drugs, used for the treatment of these medical conditions, CBD has a better side effect profile.”
