Can I take CBD with my medication?

Estimated reading time: 1 min

At EthicaCBD we would always suggest checking with your doctor before taking CBD if you are on any medications. CBD can be taken with the majority of medications however, we would always recommend checking prior to use. 

CBD is usually very well-tolerated by the body, but there is still ongoing research into its effect. Many drugs are broken down by enzymes in the liver and sometimes CBD might compete with (or interfere with) these enzymes, meaning that the body may receive too much/too little of the prescribed medicine you are taking. The Harvard Medical School states that:

“People considering or taking CBD products should always mention their use to their doctor, particularly if they are taking other medications or have underlying medical conditions, such as liver disease, kidney disease, epilepsy, heart issues, a weakened immune system, or are on medications that can weaken the immune system (such as cancer medications)”.
