Can you take CBD oil on the same day you're being sedated?

Hi everyone!

I am having my wisdom teeth out on the 30th June under IV sedation, I am absolutely terrified as I have never been sedated before, and I have recently started taking CBD oil for my anxiety as it helps to calm me down. I was wondering if I would be able to take CBD oil on the morning of the procedure or is it not recommended? I don't want to do anything which could make the sedation not work or anything, but I am just worried I will be so scared you won't be able to get me in the chair in the first place!

PS: I live in the UK by the way if that helps with answering the question, just in case there are different rules or something!

Should be fine, but to be on the safe side check with them first.

It is possible to ask for a premed to take to make going to the appointment a bit easier, you're going to be escorted anyway so it's not a big deal.

Hi Gordon!

I have been prescribed something to help me sleep the night before, but I've been told that I'm not allowed to take an oral sedative the morning of for some reason, so they may say no.They said something about how an oral sedative can affect the sedation, but I see quite a few people on here say they have taken something the morning of and been fine so I don't really understand why I can't! But anyway thank you for the advice!
