does cbd oil thin your blood

CBD oil in all forms is regulated as a medical supplement, because this is typically how it is advertised. As a result, only five states currently have no significant restrictions on its sale and consumption. Every other state has either restricted it through marijuana laws or limits the sale of CBD oil in some form, whether through food and drink regulation, medical regulation or other forms of restriction.

Cannabis-extract CBD oil is typically legal in states that have also legalized recreational marijuana, however its status is usually complicated.

It can make Parkinson's disease worse.

Is CBD Oil Legal?

In short, there's a different answer for this question for every single state. Make sure to research the laws of your state carefully, and for more information check out our article here.

Most of the side effects of CBD oil are moderate. Unless you fall into one of the specific categories above, the odds are that this is a generally benign product with limited negative consequences, according to one research paper. Most of those include:

Some research indicates that CBD oil can exacerbate the symptoms of Parkinson's Disease. This research is ongoing, but patients should avoid the product until more definitive results come out.

Cannabidiol, or CBD oil, is an extract from the cannabis plant. It has boomed in the wake of the legalized marijuana movement, now that businesses can grow and sell the substance freely in several states.

No studies have examined potential interactions between CBD and metoprolol. However, some placebo-controlled research conducted on healthy people at the University of Nottingham in England and published in 2017 in the journal JCI Insight has linked CBD with decreased blood pressure when taken on its own. For patients taking metoprolol, however, the combination with CBD could potentially have negative impacts on blood pressure.

Potentially, CBD can increase the duration and strength of ibuprofen, thereby increasing the risk of adverse side effects. No human studies to date examine CBD’s interaction with NSAIDs specifically. Still, two studies conducted on animal models in 2006 and 2008 and published respectively in the journals, Pain and Pharmacology, suggest that other cannabinoids may work synergistically with NSAIDs like ibuprofen to reduce pain.

Eliquis (generically called apixaban) is a blood thinner used to lower the risk of stroke or a blood clot in veins, the heart, the lungs, and the legs following knee or hip replacement surgery. Eliquis increases the risk of severe bleeding, and patients taking Eliquis are typically prescribed precise dosages by their doctor.

Should I take CBD with metoprolol?

More research is required to confirm potential interactions between CBD and acetaminophen. Patients looking to take both simultaneously should consult their physician.

Patients taking Eliquis should speak to their doctor before using CBD products.

More research is needed on CBD’s interaction with diabetes. Patients taking metformin should talk to their doctor about whether CBD is right for them.

This legally available and increasingly popular natural remedy appears to have such a wide range set of health and fitness benefits due to the way it interacts with human “receptors”. It supports and stimulates the way our bodies carry out their own natural tasks and creates a “balance”.

So how can CBD affect blood and the circulatory system?

There is a lot more information to be uncovered on CBD’s ability to thin blood – or indeed how it has such a marked impact on other natural bodily functions too.

One comment

This can even out mood, manage pain and inflammation and generally make us feel calmer and “recovered”.

What is understood so far is very interesting and promising.

Medical science to back up recommendations

It all adds up to some very promising results and some interesting medical evidence of value on its way!
