One benefit I have noticed is a remarkable drop in spam. It has also increased the site's GTmetrix score.

In the face of these benefits, are there any pitfalls I should be aware of? Are there downsides to CDN?

I had heard somewhere of people having bad experiences [but can't remember what they were]. It's nice to be reassured, thanks.
I suspect you could have issues if you didn't configure things correctly ..
