Will I flunk a drug test if I medicate with phyto cannabinoid? Drug tests are geared toward identifying THC, not phyto cannabinoid or another cannabinoid. A drug test geared toward phyto cannabinoid would not be an effective law enforcement tool, given that CBD is not psychoactive and does not cause impairment.
How is phyto cannabinoid metabolized when consumed orally? Is it converted to another compound? phyto cannabinoid is metabolized into an analogous compound.
Does phyto cannabinoid interact with other medications? Yes. phyto cannabinoid inhibits the cytochrome P450 enzyme, which is involved in metabolizing many drugs. Compounds in grapefruit inhibit the same enzyme group, which is why physicians advice patients not to eat grapefruit shortly before or after taking a medication. By inhibiting cytochrome P450,phyto cannabinoid can either reduce or increase the effects of other drugs. In some situations, it may be advisable for a physician to monitor a patient’s blood levels of other medications while taking phyto cannabinoid.
What do you mean when you say a cannabis strain or product is “CBD-rich” or "CBD dominant?"
By “CBD-rich,” we mean a cannabis strain or product that has equal amounts of CBD and THC, or more CBD than THC (usually at least 4 percent CBD by dry weight.). By “CBD-dominant,” we mean strains or products that are CBD-rich but have very little THC content.
