Can i take CBD with my other medications

When it comes to taking CBD with other medications, we only ever advise one thing- if you are unsure, check with a medical professional before using it as it can, on occasion, interact with other medicines. Always stick to the recommended dose too and if you are taking other meds keep a two hour window between taking CBD and whatever else you take.

I get drug tested at work... will I be ok?

Drug tests are carried out because THC is known for the feelings of euphoria it provides and this is the illegal part!  CBD products to be legal in the UK must be less than 0.2% THC, and there should be less than 1 mg (THC) in any subsequent container of CBD oil or product that is sold.

To summarise, although you shouldn’t have a problem passing a drugs test, consumers that take full spectrum CBD products may fail a urine test for traces of THC. However, further testing such as a blood test, will show that the levels of THC from a full spectrum CBD product are none psychoactive.
