Is it safe to take CBD with other medications?

One of the biggest concerns we've come across are possible CBD drug interactions, and if CBD is safe to take with other medications. Considering the ambiguity of what's really in some of these prescribed medications and how they work with the body can be a very concerning subject.

Due to the nature of chemical compounds, whether natural or synthetic, virtually every substance, including CBD (Cannabidiol), will interact with other substances. For example, labels on a variety of prescription drugs will advise you to avoid grapefruit when taking the medication because it can significantly affect how the body metabolizes the drug.

While CBD can deliver a variety of health benefits and is safe to take with many medications, CBD can illicit problematic interactions with certain drugs, as any natural dietary supplements, herbal remedies, or other home-made remedies. In this article below, please find more information about several CBD drug interactions and explore important facts every CBD user should be aware of.

Note: Please be advised that findings are not always conclusive as further research upon the interaction with certain medications is still needed. Depending on the type, quality, and purity of CBD being administered, CBD can have interactions with a drug. We highly advise consulting your doctor or a certified health professional before taking Cannabidiol (CBD).
