Ibuprofen has been used to manage pain for many many years, but many people are turning to CBD oil to help manage pain in a more natural way. However, this brought up a new question – can CBD be taken with Ibuprofen?
So far, there are not many research results on how CBD interacts with other medications, Ibuprofen included, but some research has shown that CBD poses inhibitory action on some enzymes affecting drug metabolism in liver and gut. That means that some of the side effects may occur when Ibuprofen is taken with CBD at the same time.
Since the interaction between the two may either increase or decrease how quickly liver enzymes are able to break down drugs, the overall effects of the Ibuprofen may be reduced or intensified. Also, the time when you take both substances matters, as it can help to reduce the workload on your liver and its function or possible damage.
Because of every person is different and can handle Ibuprofen with CBD differently, please consider talking to your doctor about possible side affects before taking CBD with Ibuprofen.
