Can I take CBD with blood pressure medication?

While CBD is generally considered safe and well-tolerated, it’s important to exercise caution when combining it with other substances, especially medications that affect vital bodily functions. 

CBD is metabolized by the liver through a group of enzymes known as cytochrome P450. Some blood pressure medications, such as beta-blockers and calcium channel blockers, are also processed by these same enzymes. In theory, this means that CBD could potentially influence the metabolism of these medications, possibly altering their effectiveness or leading to unwanted side effects.

However, it’s important to note that the interaction between CBD and blood pressure medication is not yet fully understood, and more research is needed to determine the extent and nature of these potential interactions. The effects may vary depending on factors such as the specific medication, dosage, and individual physiology.

Given the potential for interactions, we strongly advise against combining CBD with blood pressure medication without first consulting your healthcare provider. Your doctor can assess your individual situation, consider any potential risks, and provide personalized guidance on whether it’s safe and appropriate for you to use CBD while managing your blood pressure with medication.
