CBD, or cannabidiol, has become increasingly popular as a natural supplement for supporting health and well-being. But is it safe for driving?
As CBD is a non-intoxicating compound, meaning it does not produce the "high" typically associated with THC, the assumption has always been yes.
But previously, studies were lacking to prove this.
Not anymore - a recent study has added evidence to this belief - read on to find out the results!
CBD Driving Study
A study undertaken by the Lambert Initiative for Cannabinoid Therapeutics shed further light on whether CBD is safe for driving.
The study involved 26 participants who were instructed to vaporise a placebo, 13.75mg of THC, 13.75mg of CBD, or 13.75mg of a CBD/THC mixture.
After inhalation, the participants were required to drive 100km both 40 minutes and four hours later.
The results of the study showed that THC and the THC-CBD mixture had a mildly negative impact on driving 40 minutes after administration but not four hours later.
In contrast, CBD had no negative impact on driving, proving what many in the cannabinoid industry had previously suspected. This is great news for people who rely on it for health reasons!
Studies like this are critical for providing real evidence to clear up misconceptions and help strengthen the future of cannabinoid-based well-being support and optimisation.
