Is it fine to take St. John’s wort with cannabidiol (CBD) Cannabis?
I am taking 25 mg CBD hemp oil for 3 days now and I am on 900 mg of St Johns Wort for depression. Im taking CBD for insomnia and relief from arthritis. I feel great for about 3 hours and then get a slight headache. I am not sure if this is due to an interaction between the CBD and St Johns Wort but would like to learn more.
So you have been taking the CBD for 3 days? How long have you been taking the st. john’s wort? I know from personal experience that st john’s can cause heachaches. Also CBD effects Cannabinoid receptors in the brain which is different than st john’s because it effects the serotonin receptors. I don’t think an interaction is likely but if anyone has any other info about this then I am all ears. Hope this helped.
P.S. Try buying a St John’s wort tincture, and break your dose into 500mg (.5ml) in the morning and at night. See where that takes you.
