We started an online retail business out of New York and now we are the middlemen for two companies. Both of these companies sell Hemp Oil and CBD Oil. Therefore, I wanted to do research on what our company is promoting on our online store site. The health benefits that I have experienced have been less joint pain in my knees and hands due to arthritis. But according to the article “What Are The Side Effects of Hemp Oil? Facts You Need To Know.” The article was written by Dr. Ahmed Zayed Helmy states that “The use of hemp oil has become very common today due to its versatility and amazing health potential. Men and women who want to make healthier lifestyle choices and those who appreciate holistic approach toward good health and well-being love hemp oil.” https://www.consumerhealthdigest.com/cbd-hemp-center/hemp-oil-side-effects.html. However, according to Dr. Helmy there are side effects from Hemp Oil. The first one the doctor mentions is about your cardiovascular health. For example, the doctor states in the article that “Atherosclerosis is a condition wherein plaque builds up inside the arteries and increases the risk of cardiovascular events such as heart attack and stroke. In addition, atherosclerosis is the leading cause of vascular disease worldwide.” https://www.consumerhealthdigest.com/cbd-hemp-center/hemp-oil-side-effects.html. The next one the doctor mentions is about gastrointestinal distress which includes bloating, loose stools, diarrhea, and cramps in the stomach. He mentions that “Don’t be alarmed, these symptoms are usually mild, and they don’t worsen later. You are more likely to experience these side effects when you just start using hemp oil, and in many cases, they lessen or disappear the more you consume it.” https://www.consumerhealthdigest.com/cbd-hemp-center/hemp-oil-side-effects.html. The other problems that can occur are Blood Clotting, Prostate Cancer, Harmful Peroxides, THC Sensitivity, Interactions with other medications, Dry Mouth, Headaches, and Drowsiness. You need to do research on what you’re going to buy, the quality of the product and the merchant or drop shipper who is supplying the product. If you overuse a product whether it be Hemp Oil or CBD Oil there will be side effects, so it’s best to consult with a medical professional first before you start taking any products that can cause the problems I mentioned above.
