Studies have recently found a range of benefits for CBD oil; the following have been highlighted:
- May alleviate pain and cancer related symptoms

- Natural antidepressant
- Could be effective in epilepsy treatment

While most CBD oil users don’t experience any negative effects, as with any treatment – natural or otherwise – there are possible side effects. These may include nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, bloating and dizziness. CBD oil could interact with common prescription medications, so it’s important you always seek the advice of your GP before giving it a go.
