Does CBD interact with prednisone and other steroids?

Asked 2 years ago

How are CBD oil and steroids related? Can you take CBD oil with steroids?

Many steroids, such as hydrocortisone and prednisolone, inhibit the cytochrome P450 enzyme CYP3A. Unfortunately, so does CBD. This means that taking CBD oil and steroids together could lower the rate at which the drugs are metabolised and therefore cause an increased level of side effects relating to the drug.

It's advised that you don't take CBD with steroids or any pharmaceutical drugs before consulting with a doctor as the interactions could be dangerous.

Yes, CBD can interact with different types of steroids, but it would largely depend on the type of steroid. For instance, Hydrocortisone and prednisolone interact with CBD if you take them simultaneously. The same applies to corticosteroids, and taking them with CBD could lead to unwanted corticosteroids related side effects in the body.
