There is no harm. It is almost food product.

Thank you doctor - I am aware that it is a food product but have noticed on the sites that give info on CBD oil that they can react with certain medicines and slow down their efficiency

Please rest assured these interactions are not significant. Many irritant drugs are advised to be taken on full stomach.

One last question - understand it will not affect my regular medication but I am taking Amoxicillin and Prednisolone for a chest infection at this time and wanted to be sure that it wouldn't interfere with them specifically

Amoxycillin may cause some loose stool so may withhold cbd if so, till motions regular.
