POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS:
Clinical research has shown that CBD oil can trigger side effects – the severity and type of which can vary from one person to the next.3 Common symptoms include:
Changes in appetite
Changes in mood
CBD oil may also increase liver enzymes (a marker of liver inflammation). People with liver disease should use CBD oil with caution, ideally under the care of a doctor who can regularly check blood liver enzyme levels.
CBD oil should be avoided during pregnancy and breastfeeding. A 2018 study from the American Academy of Pediatrics warned women to avoid marijuana during pregnancy due to the potential risks to a baby’s development. Although it is unclear how CBD contributes, CBD is known to able to pass through the placental barrier.
If you are thinking about using CBD oil to treat a health condition, be sure to speak with your healthcare provider to ensure that it is the right option for you.
Be advised that some CBD oils contain trace amounts of THC. As such, you should avoid driving or using heavy machinery when taking CBD oil, particularly when first starting treatment or using a new brand.
CBD oil can interact with certain medications, including some used to treat epilepsy. CBD inhibits an enzyme called cytochrome P450 (CYP450) which certain drugs use for metabolization. By interfering with CYP450, CBD may either increase the toxicity or decrease the effectiveness of these drugs.
The potential drug-drug interactions include:
Anti-arrhythmia drugs like quinidine
Anticonvulsants like Tegretol (carbamazepine) and Trileptal (oxcarbazepine)
Antifungal drugs like Nizoral (ketoconazole) and Vfend (voriconazole)
Antipsychotic drugs like Orap (pimozide)
Atypical antidepressants like Remeron (mirtazapine)
Benzodiazepine sedatives like Klonopin (clonazepam) and Halcion (triazolam)
Immune-suppressive drugs like Sandimmune (cyclosporine)
Macrolide antibiotics like clarithromycin and telithromycin
Migraine medications like Ergomar (ergotamine)
Opioid painkillers like Duragesic (fentanyl) and alfentanil
Rifampin-based drugs used to treat tuberculosis
Many of these interactions are mild and require no adjustment to treatment. Others may require a drug substitution or the separation of doses by several hours.
To avoid interactions, advise your doctor about any drugs you are taking, whether they be prescription, over-the-counter, herbal, or recreational.
