Cannabidiol or CBD is an alternative medicine for some ailments. It is safe to use for humans, but there are drugs that you should not take with CBD.
At the moment, American medicine is guided by the data of a study by Indiana University, whose specialists have compiled a list of pharmaceutical products that cannot be mixed with CBD (in any form – CBD gummies, CBD oil, CBD vape oil, CBD capsules).
Therefore, this list of drugs are the drugs you should not take along with CBD:
- Angiotensin II blockers;
- Antiarrhythmic drugs;
- Calcium channel blockers;
- Antiviral drugs for HIV;
- HMG CoA reductase inhibitors (statins);
- Immune modulators;
- Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs;
- Oral hypoglycemic agents;
- Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs);
- Steroids and corticosteroids;
The rejection of cannabidiol or CBD when taking these drugs is mandatory since this pharmaceutical group contains inactive compounds in the monotherapy framework, which become active when interacting with cannabinoids. Also, the interaction of CBD with the above drugs can reduce the concentration of the active substance in the blood.
CBD, in any form, is not harmful to humans. Also, there are no recorded overdose cases. However, this supplement should be taken with precautions.
