CBD and Statins

Statins are a common family of drugs to consider for interaction with CBD because most are processed by the CYP3A4 enzyme. Taking CBD with statins can theoretically raise the levels of statins in the body, increasing the risk of side effects. Additionally, statins are less compatible with CBD because statins tend to cause side effects that are common and similar to the symptoms we tend to treat with CBD. For example, most statin drugs can cause memory issues, muscle pain, fatigue and muscle weakness.

Taking CBD with statins can increase the concentration of Statins in your body. CBD inhibits enzymes that break down Statins in the body, and this will lead to high levels of statins in the blood.

On the other hand, CBD can help with cholesterol by reducing inflammation and improving blood flow, according to studies.
