Dr. John Kim, Pharm.D. joined us in Portland this past June. He sat down with Bevon for a one on one interview. In this clip, he talks Cytochrome P450 enzyme & drug interaction when it comes to taking CBD.
Thank you to our video sponsor Life Elements.
Medications that are known to use the cytochrome p450 enzyme system
Here is a list of medications that are known to use the cytochrome p450 enzyme system, according to the Indiana University Department of Medicine:
- HMG CoA reductase inhibitors
- Calcium channel blockers
- HIV antivirals
- Immune modulators
- Beta blockers
- Angiotension II blockers
- Oral hypoglycemic agents
Before you begin to worry, not every medication in each of the categories listed will cause an interaction. But, be aware that this list does not necessarily contain every medication that could be affected by Cannabidiol. While it’s true that taking CBD by itself has not been shown to cause any unwanted side effects, it may increase the chances of experiencing side effects from other medications you might be taking at the same time.
