It is already established that CBD may interact with certain types of foods, such as mangoes, due to mangoes containing terpenes. Similarly, CBD as a dietary supplement can affect certain medicines and drugs. If you are planning on combining CBD with medication, we recommend taking some time to learn how to do this safely.
There are currently few studies that specifically investigate how CBD as a separate cannabinoid interacts with other drugs and medication. It has been observed, however, that an intake of CBD affects the body’s liver, which in turn can affect how the body metabolizes different types of drugs. This could, for example, result in your body taking a long time to break down the other medication, which in turn can contribute to the drug staying active for a longer period.
Studies have shown that the blood thinning drug Warfarin is able to interact with CBD.
The combination could result in significantly lower doses of Warfarin being sufficient to produce the same effect as higher doses.
