What else should I be aware of?

The cannabidiol (CBD) in medicinal cannabis is not psychoactive but may interact with other medications to cause drowsiness. Therefore, you should always seek your doctor’s advice before driving or operating machinery.

Some medicinal cannabis products may also include tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), in which case, there is a strict ban on driving and operating machinery.
