I take and sell HempWorx and live in KY whuch is a heavily opiate addicted state. I want to educate people on how CBD can help, especially with the Feds closing the doors on several pain clinics lately. The doctors who are “helping” these misplaced patients find solutions will not mention CBD and it is so frustrating.
I need to know the drug interactions so I can take CBD effectively. My GP will not tell me or look into CBD to give me any answers. He just shuts me down with “we can not, and will not, talk about CBD at all.
An interaction with CBD can cause elevated levels of another drug the person is consuming. I haven’t heard of the cantab tablets but have heard great things about CBD pure.
Like most when the pain started I took paracetamol and quickly moved onto other more effective meds until now where I’m on the maximum of morphine and sometimes I’m over the 150mg. I take this in 2 ways 100mg and 25mg fenanil patches and the rest topped up with oralmorph at regular intervals daily. Now I’m trying to reduce the sterroids to reduce my risk of complications from the bariatric surgery to support my lose of weight and eventually alleviate some of the hemp oil for pain symptoms of Asthma. I know all the complications like addiction and more from morphine and other pain meds.
B. There are plenty of CBD products out there without coconut oil. There is a possibility for a drug interaction between CBD and your other medications. I urge you to check with your doctor first as they may want to monitor your blood levels of other medications you are on.
Project CBD just released an excellent paper on drug interactions which you should download and check out. I always recommend speaking to your doctor or pharmacist first before you start using CBD, just to be on the safe side. Most people do not have serious problems with drug interactions but again, always better to be safe. I can’t answer questions on specific drug interactions because I am not a doctor. In addition, the sections on drug interactions in this presentation from Washington D.C.’s department of health has good information.
I used Suboxone which was harder to come off of than the opiates, especially cold turkey. Message me if you have any advice on how I can reach some of these patients without sounding like I just want to sell my product to them.
