DRUG INTERACTIONS WITH AEDs
If you are on an AED, anti-epileptic drug, including but not limited to Clobazam, Valproate, Levetiracetam, Falbamate, Lamotrigine, Clonazepam, Zonisamide, Topiramate, Lacosamide, Phenobarbital, Rufinamide, Carbamazepine, Stiripentol, Oxcarbazepine, or Ethosuximide, there may be a potential interaction with Phytocannabinoids. This interaction has shown the levels of these drugs to increase or decrease by up to 50% with the presence of Phytocannabinoids. Please consult your physician first if you take any AED, or any other prescription drug prior to taking Hemp Oil.
Be sure to dose Phytocannabinoids at least two hours apart from pharmaceutical medications. Take ½ the Daily Dose in the AM and the other half in the PM a few hours before Bed.
METABOLISM & INTERACTIONS
Phytocannabinoids are predominantly metabolized in the liver and is a known inhibitor of liver enzyme P450 2C19 (abbreviated CYP2C19). This enzyme is responsible for metabolism of several pharmaceutical drugs. Phytocannabinoid use may therefore cause fluctuations in serum levels for certain medications. If the client uses treatments which utilize these pathways, the standard protocol for Phytocannabinoid users is to measure baseline liver function tests (LFT), other labs of concern, and medication levels including desmethyl levels and then to repeat these assessments frequently thereafter. If unusual symptoms begin to present, the provider should determine whether Phytocannabinoids are potentiating the side effects of current medication.
Hemp Lively’s Whole Plant Products derived from hemp contain trace amounts of THC. With daily dosing, customers may test positive for THC in urine and blood. If you are concerned about failing a drug test, please purchase one of our Broad-Spectrum T-Free Hemp Oils which have all of the main Psychoactive Phytocannabinoid removed.
HEMP AND LAW ENFORCEMENT
The hemp plant is in the same family as high-THC cannabis, and smells the same, therefore law enforcement may identify hemp as an illegal substance.
