The short answer is that more research is needed on CBD oil's beneficial effects for thyroid conditions like Hashimoto's Disease.
Levothyroxine works by replacing the missing hormones that aren't produced quickly enough due to an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism).
CBD oil potentially relieves the symptoms associated with thyroiditis, such as inflammation and the associated anxiety and depression.
Levothyroxine and CBD oil could potentially work together to fight different issues caused by the same problem, but you should always consult with a doctor first and give it a few hours in between doses due to the potential for negative interactions between the two.

However, experts say CBD have anti-inflammatory and immuno-supressor properties which can help with Hypothyroidism, and because CBD is a natural medication, it is thought to have less side effects. Taking CBD in tandem with other medications might be detrimental as both drugs may compete for metabolism. See a doctor before using CBD and Levothyroxine together.
