“It’s an extremely promising compound and there are a lot of studies that show its potential,” says Dr. Kevin Hill, addiction psychiatrist and Director of the Division of Addiction Psychiatry at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
⠀ 
Short for cannabidiol, CBD is a non-intoxicating chemical in the cannabis plant. Unlike THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD does not make you high. But CBD is gaining a reputation as as a magical elixir to treat everything from anxiety to depression, inflammation to acne. Some researchers are even looking into whether it could be used as an adjunct treatment for opioid addiction.
⠀
“But while pre-clinical or animal studies show CBD may have anti-anxiety properties and may be antipsychotic, for the majority of uses, there is not a lot of evidence.” Dr. Kevin Hill added.
⠀ “While the compound itself appears to be relatively safe, we need to know more,” he says. “It’s not a great scenario to have millions of people using cannabidiol when we don’t have the level of evidence that we need about its long-term effects or interaction with other medications.”
⠀ 
That’s why — if you do decide to experiment with CBD — it’s imperative that you tell your doctor. “It’s better to do it under some supervision than none,” says Hill. “If you are taking CBD and are on five other medications, I need to know that.”
