There are lots of concerns with giving children any sorts of medications if there isn’t ample research available detailing the short term and long term side effects.
This is certainly true with medications for people of any age, but it’s especially troublesome if children are exposed to any compounds that are deemed as harmful after further research is completed. Thankfully things like acetaminophen and guaifenesin are tried and true over-the-counter medications that are both safe for children and also safe across the board if you follow proper dosage instructions. I don’t think you could ever consume too much guaifenesin, but you could easily take too much acetaminophen and run into serious problems with live toxicity. That’s why you need to follow proper dosage instructions regardless of your age. But CBD and hemp products are easily safer than acetaminophen and can also be given to children at the recommendation of a pediatrician. For instance, if your child suffers from epilepsy a regimen of CBD could be the difference between misery and an otherwise happy life. CBD oil could also be given to a child with chronic pain as an alternative to unsafe painkillers like opiates which could have addictive properties that CBD lacks. If it’s not already obvious, I’m a huge proponent of CBD for people of all ages. I think that pet CBD products are amazing as well, especially if you already have dogs with joint and hip pain. CBD used to be expensive because it was only made in a handful of states, but now you can find affordable hemp and CBD products all over the place. If you really want to save on CBD and hemp, getting them at an online store might be your best bet.
