even if you don’t smoke “marijuana” or knowingly consume thc in some other fashion, you should still be in the know on these topics. the journal of the american medical association (jama) published findings in 2017 on 84 cbd products, with only 26 of them being accurately labeled for proper cbd content. that’s only a 31% accuracy rate! (again, we can’t drive the point home clearly enough as to how important it is to choose a cbd company that you can trust, since you are going to be physically consuming the product you buy)
with that being said, cbd (and cannabis as a whole) can still absolutely play a role in the secretion of sweat. anxiety, hot flashes, auto-immune diseases, and thc withdrawals are just a few of the ways in which cannabis may be linked to the human body and sweating.
cbd’s efficacy towards anxiety could be another way in which it plays a secondary role in sweat control. if you find yourself sweating as a result of becoming anxious, cbd may help with the anxiety, and therefore also solve the issue of sweating. it also may help with night sweats, and same goes for symptoms associated with hot flashes.
thc consumption and sweating
if you find yourself sweating excessively after consuming cbd, you are not alone. excessive sweating not related to heat or exercise (also known as hyperhidrosis) occurs as a bodily reaction to perceived stress. this sweating can occur on the palms, underarms, soles of your feet, and even your face. you might not even be physically stressed for these reactions to occur, which means they can become even more pronounced in stressful situations.
it goes both ways, though. people also report that thc consumption helps get rid of symptoms of hyperhidrosis. much like the fact that multiple systems could be at play to cause sweating, the same could be said for why cannabis may interact with a body’s sweat inhibition. thc may make people feel calm, physically looser, or more mentally aware (to name a few examples), and any of these may result in the body experiencing enough stimuli that it no longer finds itself in a state where it needs to produce sweat. it could also be from thc’s direct effects on the body with relation to body temperature.
no sweat! or. yes sweat? can cbd oil cause sweating? there are lots of claims out there about cbd’s benefits and side effects, but this was one that seemed interesting to us. read on and see what we found.
looking further into this, 43% of products contained less cbd than were advertised, while 26% were over-labeled in terms of cbd content. of the tested “cbd samples,” 21% of them, or 18 of 84 samples also tested positive for thc! this is another reason why it is so important to have third-party lab results that prove there is no thc in your tinctures – you could be consuming thc without even knowing it. and if you live in a state where thc is illegal, you could also be unknowingly putting yourself at legal risk.
I tried CBD oil one day in an airport to help with flight anxiety. But I noticed later that my hands and armpits weren’t sweating, which does not normally happen, as I’m always sweating. I continued to use the oil over the next few days and my hands and armpits remained dry. I have not sweat since!! I still sweat when I workout but I only sweat when I’m supposed to. I do one syringe full every morning and if I’m going out at night I’ll do one before I go out.
I just wanted to post what I came across that worked incredibly well for me and share it for anyone that wants to try it! I have suffered from horrible hyperhidrosis since I was a little. I get it in my palms, armpits, and feet. It was extremely bad and something I was incredibly self conscious about. I could never wear grey or colored shirts because I would sweat through them. I always avoided shake or holding anyone’s hands.
I have had 0 excessive sweating since. I have tried topicals, medications (glyco), injections and nothing really worked until the CBD oil. It has been a miracle for me.
Other potential benefits of CBD aren’t clear. No high-quality research shows that CBD improves sex drive, decreases pain, treats depression or mood disorders, decreases PMS symptoms like bloating and cramps, or relieves symptoms of menopause like hot flashes. This may change as more studies are done, but for now, the jury is out.
Because CBD products aren’t regulated by the FDA in the way that drugs are, there is huge variation in quality and, quite possibly, safety. In 2017–2018, counterfeit CBD oil was found that contained synthetic cannabinoids and led to a poisoning outbreak in Utah.
Does CBD have proven benefits?
CBD can cause side effects like dry mouth, diarrhea, reduced appetite, and drowsiness. Additionally, it can interact with certain medicines, such as blood thinners and antiseizure drugs. If you would like to start using CBD products, it’s best to first talk to your doctor.
Cannabidiol (CBD) oil and other products containing CBD are being touted as a natural, organic remedy for a wide range of women’s health concerns. Sellers of these products make many claims: CBD has calming effects on sleep, mood, and anxiety; eases hot flashes and improves bone density by balancing hormonal changes of menopause; and has anti-inflammatory properties that clear skin, cure acne, and calm rosacea. It’s promoted for PMS symptoms like bloating and mood swings. And CBD-infused lubricants claim to boost arousal and enjoyment of sex. So, how much of this is true?
The short answer is this: pure CBD seems to be safe for most people. However, we don’t have rigorous studies and long-term data to prove whether or not a wide range of CBD products are safe for everyone. For example, there is no evidence to suggest that CBD is safe during pregnancy or breastfeeding, or for people who are immunocompromised.
