CBD can inhibit the cytochrome P450 system’s ability to metabolize certain drugs, leading to an overall increase in processing times (similar to grapefruit - if it has been recommended not to eat grapefruit with the medication, that's a good indicator to carefully time if/when you ingest CBD vs your dose of medication).
You can learn more about possible specific interactions here, an overview of the role of cytochrome P450 in metabolizing drugs here, and a more in-depth publication on the topic here.
