Most people consider using CBD because of an underlying condition and are most likely on other medications for the same conditions. “Will CBD Interact with Pharmaceutical Medications?” is a very concerning question as CBD is known to interact with receptors all over the body’s Endocannabinoid System while inhibiting the activity of cytochrome P450 (liver enzymes responsible for breaking down drugs and toxins). This simply means that CBD can really affect the way other drugs are metabolized in the body.

Studies also show that CBD can induce a sedative effect, interact with anti-seizure and chemotherapy medications, and multiply the effects of blood-thinning medications. Grapefruit juice is another substance known to inhibit the cytochrome P450 enzymes and slow down the metabolic process, and any drug or medication that is advised to not be consumed with grapefruit juice, should also not be consumed with CBD.

In conclusion, it is important to consult with your doctor before using CBD with other medications, as CBD has been proven to interact with other drugs.
