Who Shouldn’t Vape CBD? – It’s Not for Everyone
Who Shouldn’t Vape CBD?
OK. I believe that vaping CBD is really amazing.
Plus it is impossible to overdose on CBD.
But not everyone should be vaping CBD.
CBD is Real
Well, CBD in and of itself is pretty powerful and affects a lot of other systems in the body. It can also either interact with other drugs or compete with them for liver enzymes – possibly causing a rise in enzyme levels.
Vaping is Not for Everyone
Furthermore, breathing in compounds – however beneficial – into your lungs is just not good for certain people.
Who Shouldn’t Vape CBD
Everyone considering vaping CBD should consult a physician before taking CBD – just to be on the safe side.
But here is a list of folks who should be very cautious or avoid vaping CBD altogether.
- People with respiratory issues such as COPD, asthma or lung cancer.
- Patients taking blood thinners such as Warfarin
- Woman taking oral contraceptives
- Pregnant or lactating women
- Anyone under 21
- Cancer patients
- Parkinson’s sufferers
- People taking beta blockers or other drug that uses the P450 enzyme.
- Pets 🙂
“Hey, you always say how safe vaping CBD is!”
Well, it is. However, as you see, most of the people on this list have serious pre-existing health problems and are probably taking powerful prescription meds.
Some of this list is just common sense – kids, pregnant women, asthmatics.
But others need a little more explanation.
Your body uses the CYP450 enzymes to metabolize CBD. Several types of pharmaceutical drugs also use this enzyme. So there will be competition for it in your liver and your liver enzymes could be elevated.
Your liver also uses the P450 enzyme to metabolize grapefruit juice. So if your prescription say to avoid grapefruit juice, CBD is probably not for you.
If you are taking a prescription med, ask your doctor if yours promotes production of the CYP450 enzyme. He’ll be impressed!
CBD can either enhance a drugs effect or counteract it.
CBD actually makes blood thinners more effective – and that’s not a good thing.
So ALWAYS check with your physician before vaping CBD if you’re on any prescription medication.
Also, CBD helps regulate and balance the various systems in our body – including the endocrine system – which is our hormone system.
So if you’re taking high amounts of estrogen for birth control, CBD is going to try to counter and regulate your hormone levels. It could make the pill less effective.
And I’m guessing you don’t want that. 🙂
Vaping CBD can be a very powerful tool for wellness.
Yes, it’s powerful.
Therefore, if you’re considering it, you should look at your overall health and do some research to see whether you should or shouldn’t vape CBD.
If you are unsure, go online, do a little homework and then ask your doctor.
If you decide vaping CBD is right for you, great. Get ready to breath in the goodness of CBD!
