Does CBD Oil Interact With Supplements?

There are many people out there that, like myself, take multiple supplements to assist in their continued health.

CBD Oil is just another factor in my daily regiment and pursuit of a healthier and happier life. So the question remains: "Can I take CBD Oil in conjunction with supplements?"

The answer is YES!

Multi-vitamins, natural herb and plant supplements -- all are finding a way into peoples' households. Just like CBD Oil is. In conjunction with a proper balanced diet and exercise, the potentials of CBD oil and other supplements are claimed by many, with no call to alarm for interactions at this point in the research.

According to the FDA:

A dietary supplement is a product intended for ingestion that contains a "dietary ingredient" intended to add further nutritional value to (supplement) the diet. A "dietary ingredient" may be one, or any combination, of the following substances:

  1. a vitamin
  2. a mineral
  3. Feline cbd hemp oil tincture
  4. an herb or other botanical
  5. an amino acid
  6. a dietary substance for use by people to supplement the diet by increasing the total dietary intake
  7. a concentrate, metabolite, constituent, or extract

Dietary supplements may be found in many forms such as tablets, capsules, softgels, gelcaps, liquids, or powders. Some dietary supplements can help ensure that you get an adequate dietary intake of essential nutrients; others may help you reduce your risk of disease. (Read More)

CBD Oil has been found to have little to no side effects. The side effects that are known are that CBD can decrease the activity of liver enzymes called cytochrome P$%), responsible for metabilizing more than 60% of prescribed drugs. (RR2)CBD may also cause mild low blood pressure, dry mouth, lightheadedness, and sedation (RR2). According to SelfHacked.com

I continue to do research on this, and so far have yet to find any testimony of how CBD oil has had side effects with over the counter supplements. As always, you should consult your physician in regards to what you take, but for now, it appears that adding CBD to your daily routine does not pose significant risks if you are not taking any precription medications. 

Stay Healthy!
