Can You Use CBD Together With Viagra?

Updated: Feb 16

Viagra is a brand name of Sildenafil, a drug that is approved to treat erectile dysfunction (ED). Viagra works by increasing blood flow to your penis which helps your penis stay erect. Viagra only works if you are sexually aroused.


Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is the inability to have an erection or maintain an erection long enough to have a sexuall activity. ED could be caused by both physical (diabetes, heart issues, injury or physiological issues) or psychological (mental health issues) and sometimes both. Lifestyle can also be a factor too, like if you drink, smoke or lack of exercise.


Viagra is an effective treatment for ED and recently scientists have found that CBD may be very helpful in treating erectile dysfunction too.

So if you are current taking Viagra and would like to combine it with CBD, because you have heard great things about CBD then read on to learn whether using CBD with viagra is safe or not? Whether there would be any interactions between CBD and viagra or not?


First thing first, viagra should only be prescribed by your medical provider. Your doctor should advise you that taking Sildenafil like viagra may come with side effects like: priapism, that's when you have a prolonged and painful erection. Other side effects include dizziness, indigestion and headaches.


If you are thinking of using CBD products like CBD oil with viagra then make sure you discuss your options with your medical provider.


Combining CBD with vigra could heighten the side effects (do note the side effects do not occur to everyone).


One plus point and perhaps the biggest advantage of combining CBD with viagra is that CBD can prolong the effects of viagra as CBD slows down the metabolism of viagra.


CBD can interact with viagra in two ways: agnostic interaction and slow elimination.


With Agnostic Interaction, both compounds are able to relax blood vessels and using both CBD and viagra could cause an excess of relaxation to blood vessels resulting in headaches, dizziness fatigue and priapism.


With Slowed Elimination, first we must understand that medications are metabolized through the body through the enzymes in your liver called, CYP450.


When you use both viagra and CBD at the same time both will create a competitive interactions causing a slow down in the metabolism of one or two drugs. Medications like sildenafil will interact with the CYP450 enzymes and CBD does the same.


Keep in mind that if you use CBD with viagra the plasma in your body will increase and using vigra everyday can caused a build up of plasma which in the long run can be problematic.


Currently, there are no scientific report showing any harmful side effects of combing cbd and vigra apart from the risk of experiencing priarism as mentioned earlier.


If you notice any negative experiences from using both compounds then it would be wise to stop taking one or the other.


Always recommended to spread out the dosage of CBD and viagra. Consider using them for at least 2 hours apart.
