Health Tip: CBD Oil Fast Facts

(HealthDay News) -- Cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD oil, is a chemical in marijuana.

It's increasingly popular among people looking for muscle relaxation and anxiety reduction. But researchers still have a lot to learn about the substance.

MedlinePlus reminds consumers that:

  • There is insufficient evidence on CBD's effectiveness for most conditions.

  • Some medications cannot be taken with CBD.

  • Side effects range from dry mouth to drowsiness.

  • CBD is not the psychoactive component of marijuana.

  • Proper dosages have yet to be defined.
