First, a few words about CBD itself…

As you know, Cannabidiol is a natural cannabinoid that is found in the hemp plant as well as other cannabinoids, the most famous representative of which is THC. But unlike it, CBD is not psychoactive and its use does not cause any negative effects. On the contrary, CBD has a number of positive effects on human health. CBD acts on our endocannabinoid system, which is the cannabinoid receptor system. These receptors are important in regulating and balancing many bodily functions. Thus, by acting on these receptors, CBD can positively influence the functions of many vital organs.

For example, the following effects of CBD have recently been proven:

  • Pain relief
  • Reducing anxiety and stress
  • Improved skin condition
  • Neuroprotective Properties
  • Lowering blood pressure
  • Relief of cancer symptoms and side effects of cancer treatment
  • Reducing both the intensity and frequency of epileptic seizures

A number of other effects of CBD are still waiting to be explored in more depth.

Is CBD suitable for children?

Cannabidiol is considered to have a relatively high safety and low risk profile in both adults and children (and even animals). The question of whether and to what extent the effects of CBD differ in children and adults has not yet been properly investigated, but as medical practice shows, this difference is not significant. The impact of CBD often depends more on the individual characteristics of each person than on his age.

Read a study on the use of cannabinoids in pediatrics.

CBD rule: use everything in moderation.

But what is this measure?

There is still debate about the ideal dosage of CBD. A conservative estimate of the recommended daily dose is 2.5 milligrams of CBD per kilogram of body weight per dose, the total intake is doubled, for a total of up to 5 milligrams per kilogram per day.

But even a higher dose should not be dangerous to human health. So far, nothing like an overdose of CBD has been recorded. However, there are known side effects with excessive use of Cannabidiol, such as: fatigue and drowsiness, loss of appetite, diarrhea, so it is necessary to start taking CBD with lower doses, followed by a gradual increase.

What else do you need to know about CBD before giving it to children?

Before you decide to give CBD to your child, consider:

  • The health status of the child (presence of any choreic diseases/symptoms). This should determine the dosage of the intake and the duration of the course.
  • Which product shape to choose? CBD oil, CBD capsules, tinctures and more – different products differ in both effects and duration of action.
  • What concentration of CBD to choose?
  • Note that products with CBD must be certified!
  • Can CBD be used in combination with other medications my child is taking?

While there are no controversies with most medications, it’s always best to make sure beforehand. In general, CBD poses practically no health risks for both adults and children, and dosages should be scheduled and adjusted depending on individual tolerance.
