Pharmaceutical Drug Interaction with CBD

Pharmaceutical Drug Interaction with CBD

Serious drug interactions have not been seen with Cannabidiol (CBD) in combination with any other drug.

However, CBD and other plant cannabinoids can potentially interact with many pharmaceuticals by inhibiting the activity of cytochrome P450, a family of liver enzymes.

This key enzyme group metabolizes most of the drugs we consume, including more than 60 percent of marketed meds.

When a compound is metabolized (this means broken down), the body uses it or gets rid of it. This metabolism can also involve breaking down a compound into a more basic molecule that the body then uses.

If you are taking any prescription meds listed we strongly advise you consult with a medical professional.
