Cannabidiol, or CBD has been growing in popularity for a few years now, and that trend shows no signs of slowing down any time soon. Here’s what you need to know about CBD and drug interactions. Staci Gruber: Along with THC levels going up and cannabis becoming more potent over the last 10 or 20 years, we’ve also seen a huge drop in CBD. We know that CBD is a cannabinoid, and that our brains have endocannabinoid receptors. Cannabidiol is a safe, non-intoxicating, and non-addictive cannabis compound with significant therapeutic attributes, but CBD-drug interactions may be problematic in some cases.
CBD also inhibits the activity of a group of liver enzymes called cytochrome P450. We didn’t cover this in our episode but I can tell you we wouldn’t have any information on it. There just isn’t a lot known about marijuana and afib (or marijuana and blood thinners for that matter). Skin diseases like: acne , epidermolysis bullosa and psoriasis can be better managed by CBD oil.
Dr. Mainigi: It’s thought that between five and 10,000,000 people have atrial fibrillation, but that’s estimated to probably be on the low side because there are a number of people cbdoildb.com who have not yet been diagnosed but probably are walking around with the problem. I was certainly not quick to buy into the whole hype machine (I know that the cannabis industry is pretty crazy right now), but I can say as a first time user that it legitimately did work, and it caused absolutely no high or side effects whatsoever.
