ED Medications and Marijuana or CBD

It is not recommend to use PDE 5 inhibitors at the same time as marijuana.

There are 2 reasons for this.

1️⃣ Marijuana Lowers Blood Pressure

The first is that marijuana itself lowers blood pressure and there is a potential for the blood pressure to go down too much together with PDE 5 inhibitors.

2️⃣ THC & CBD Effect Breakdown of Sildenafil, Viagra, Cialis, Levitra

The second is that both THC and CBD (the active ingredients in marijuana) inhibit the breakdown of PDE 5 inhibitors, which may increase the blood levels of the medicine.

This could potentially increase the blood pressure lowering effects of the medication.

It is recommended to avoid the combination.
