It does depend on why you are taking CBD oil and whether you are taking enough to combat the symptoms you have..
CBD works in the body by activating receptors in the brain and nervous system – the endocannabinoid system (ECS). It affects different receptors to THC and affects many receptors which are responsible for the regulation of many parts of the body’s systems.
In general, most users do not suffer problems with CBD causing diarrhea. However, in larger doses taken orally, it is possible that CBD could cause loosend stools or diarrhea, but this is not a common side effect of CBD.
CBD can extracted from hemp using a number of methods. Elixinol uses a completely organic plant and extracts CBD and a full spectrum of other cannabinoids using a specialized CO2 extraction process. Other CBD suppliers use chemical extraction which leaves behind other essential cannabinoids which we believe reduces the effectiveness of CBD.
CBD oil is produced from the whole plant – Leaves, stalks, flowers and seeds. Some CBD oils sold are Hemp oil is produced from hemp seeds only. Hemp extract is made from the whole plant.
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors found in the brain of mammals. It is present throughout the CNS and peripheral nervous system. The ECS is composed of neuromodulatory lipids and many endocannabinoid receptors which regulate many mechanisms within the body. The Endocannabinoid system receptors are specifically receptive to cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant.

The effects of CBD will vary from person to person. It will depend on the amount taken, the method of application and the condition which they are trying to alleviate.
CBD side effects are almost negligible. They are certainly nowhere near the often scary side-effects lists that are seen in many FDA approved pharmaceutical products! Please read this article on the side effects of CBD. Perhaps a little stomach discomfort for those on high doses and some very low-level sedative effects. In a similar way that using a drop of Lavender oil on your skin might relaxes you.

A “Tincture” is substance is suspended or dissolved in another liquid. Usually alcohol but many volatile oils are also used. Generally alcohol is used to make CBD Tinctures in order to reduce viscosity. Viscosity reduction helps absorption of CBD into the body. It also allows a more concise dosage as CBD oil is very viscous/thick and hard to portion out into doses.
