When one refers to the Cannabinoid Complex, what usually comes up in the minds are two words, namely, CBDA and CBD. What many do not know is that there are other compounds that belong to the same group of vitamins and minerals, called the vitamins C, D and E. That is why most people prefer to take CBDA instead of other more traditional drugs. The reason is simple – it is an extracted form of CBD, which is a highly potent antioxidant compound that has the ability to fight many harmful diseases and aging symptoms, as well as controlling mood swings, seizures and even depression. Hence, the reason why many health supplements and manufacturers have included it in their products.
But what exactly does CBDA do? How does it work? When we say ‘CBD isolates’ this means that this particular compound contains a cannabinoid acid, and hence it acts like an anti-psychotic drug. It is not just any kind of anti-psychotic drug, though – this one contains some very interesting and complex chemical properties that make it stand out among other anti-psychotic drugs. And just like any other drug, there are certain side effects that come along with it.
One of the common side effects associated with CBDA is drowsiness. In fact, if a sufficient amount is ingested, some patients may even lose consciousness. This is a disturbing side effect because it suggests that the substance is having potentially fatal effects on the body – something that cannot be overlooked at all.
Another side effects of taking CBDA is related to anxiety. The experts say that this effect is caused by the fact that this substance also blocks the effects of norepinephrine and dopamine, two substances that are considered to be the brain’s neurotransmitters. As a result, the patient develops anxiety, restlessness and a lack of concentration. In more extreme cases, patients may experience hallucinations, severe shaking, rapid heartbeat and, in some cases, convulsions. These symptoms are also seen in patients taking high dosages of Celexa.
These are not the only side effects of taking CBDA. Some patients have reported experiencing nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, gas and weight loss. There were also cases when people developed allergic reactions to this substance. The reaction is quite similar to those experienced by people who are allergic to Vitamin A. All of these effects make it highly unadvisable for pregnant women to use this substance.
