What if I'm taking Medication?
Even though CBD has a good safety profile, if you are taking medication, you should check with your doctor before trying it, however unfortunately most doctors are not familiar with the use of CBD. Both CBD and most pharmaceuticals are detoxified by the liver’s cytochrome P450 enzyme system. As a result, certain medications, including chemotherapy agents, anti-epilepsy drugs, and the blood thinner coumadin may be affected.
