Can CBD Make You SICK?

Sick? No.

However we have recently discovered some in-depth info about how CBD products can bring about some symptoms while your body detoxifies. These symptoms have often been referred to as the Herxheimer's Effect.

Yeah I said it. CBD can initiate detoxification of the body and cells. Toxins, viruses, bacteria, fungi, parasites, and other pathogens are being killed that are attached to your cells.

Have you ever received a deep tissue massage and within 24 hours you feel lethargic or drained? These massages can have the same result - toxins and inflammation within the muscle cells will release temporarily. Most of the time when you leave a spa post-massage, your masseuse will hand you a cup of water! She will then recommend that you drink plenty of it while your body recovers.

That's all this means. Sometimes CBD users will actually report feeling worse before they feel better. I know this could feel frustrating, especially while CBD isn't a super cheap option. Effective, affordable, but not always cheap. We STRONGLY urge you to continue with your dosage. The CBD (pure, legitimate, premium CBD) is not harming you. It is aiding your body in ridding itself of all the bad sh*t.

Here's what can do if you happen to experience these symptoms post-CBD dose:

1. Drink lots of water. You should do this any way, but definitely in this case to ease symptoms.

2. Perhaps take an Epsom Salts detox bath.

3.Invest in an aforementioned deep tissue massage to help speed up the process!

4. Consume food or drink you know to be high in electrolytes and antioxidants.
