Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Hemp oil can provide good pain relief in people with pain syndromes like arthritis. However the problem with hemp oil is its dependence. You have to level up the dosage to attain the pain relief. So prolonged use is not recommended. You can take all your routine drugs along with hemp oil. No drug interactions have been reported and it doesn’t affect the efficacy each other.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further
