Consider Side Effects/Interactions
Note other medications or substances that you may be consuming, and consider if there is any “enhancement” while using CBD.
While CBD is not known to have side effects, and has never been associated with an overdose, it in theory could affect other medications your taking, mostly making them more effective, but could rarely make them less effective, so it is important to pay close attention to your body, and patterns.
Of note, if you’ve been told not to take grapefruit products with your prescribed medications, talk to your Doctor before using CBD, as it can affect the CYp450 and CYB3A isoforms.
As with any supplement proceed cautiously, especially if you have a history of alcohol or drug abuse, mental illness, are pregnant, breastfeeding, or are taking other medications.
Notify and work with your health care provider if consuming any supplements. Educate yourself and understand that because of the rapidly evolving research, Cannabis Therapeutics are not widely accepted or yet well understood. We at Care By Doctors have Experts to communicate with you or your provider if they prefer and share their most up to date knowledge.
