As a pharmacist and now owner of Green Acres CBD, I’m often asked about using prescription medications along with a CBD product. The vast majority of prescribed medications will be safe to use with most CBD products. However, there are some areas of concern. People using blood thinners and some platelet inhibitors should consult with their prescriber prior to using oral CBD products. The use of CBD with some products, may elevate the blood levels of the prescription medication. With a blood thinner, this could be a dangerous mix. Additionally, if your prescriber or pharmacist cautions you about using grapefruit or grapefruit juice with a particular medication, then an oral CBD product may require additional monitoring as well.
Stay tuned…next I’ll talk about ”water-soluble” CBD formulations. Do they work?
