Medicinal Interactions & Side Effects with CBD Oil

A 2019 study also raised concerns about CBD’s potential for liver damage by increasing the level of liver enzymes. Further, CBD may also interact with other medications that you might be taking. Therefore, as always, please do your research and consult with your doctor before using CBD products.

According to the Mayo Clinic, doctors seldom recommend using sleep medication for longer than a few weeks. While CBD and other medication can be helpful in treating conditions such as insomnia, it is important to investigate the root causes of any health problems as they may require additional treatments.
