Delta-8 hemp is a popular choice for many people looking to experience the benefits of hemp without the psychoactive effects of THC. However, before using Delta 8, there are a few things to consider. Grapefruit, St. John's Wort, and black pepper (in medicinal doses) can all interact with Delta 8 and should be avoided.
Additionally, alcohol should be avoided if you are taking Delta 8 while taking a prescription. DMSO is another substance that should be avoided when taking Delta 8.DMSO was found to be synergistic when combined with some medications, including heart medications, anticoagulants, steroids, and sedatives. People with liver, kidney or heart conditions, diabetes, and asthma were strongly advised not to use this substance. Athletes and older adults have both experienced adverse effects from using DMSO in combination with other medications.
It is important to be aware of any potential interactions between Delta 8 and other substances or medications before using it. If you are taking any medications or have any medical conditions, it is best to consult your doctor before using Delta 8 hemp. Additionally, it is important to avoid mixing Delta 8 with grapefruit, St. John's Wort, black pepper (in medicinal doses), alcohol, and DMSO.
