Can you drive when you have had CBD?
Simply put, Cannabidiol contains no psychoactive substances (in contrary to THC) and therefore in no way affects your ability to drive a car or any other vehicle. Trace amounts of THC that contain Full Spectrum CBD oil is so small that it is unable to induce a change in perception in the body and effect your motor skills, coordination or movement. Cannabidiol itself even counteracts the psychotropic effects of THC. In Germany, you can drive safely even after ingesting CBD oil and it is not possible for you to lose your license or your ability to drive to change after taking CBD.
Small doses of CBD are associated with stimulating effects that boost mood, whereas large doses are linked to more sedating effects. For these reasons, it’s better to start out with small doses of CBD if you are new to it and driving daily. Additionally, CBD affects different people in different ways. What may be a small dose for one user might make someone other to feel a bit sleepy and relaxed. Find out what your tolerance level is first at home and stay in safe to avoid any accidents.
Although CBD oil is safe for most, you must be aware of your body. Cannabinoids react differently to an individual’s body chemistry. Before you set off on your journey, consider these factors;
- Have you recently taken legal or illegal drugs?
- If in any doubt at all about prescription drugs, always check with a doctor before taking that risk
- If you are not 100% sure you feel fit to drive, DON’T!
- Make sure the labelling on your product is extensive, and you know exactly what the content includes
When it comes to CBD oil and driving, the bottom line is that it’s perfectly legal, and safe, to drive after you’ve taken CBD oil.
