So you want to use CBD but don’t know if getting behind the wheel is safe? Keep reading!

CBD AND THE BRAIN

CBD is not intoxicating like THC, but it does affect the brain. You wouldn’t be taking it if it didn’t! CBD changes the brain’s chemistry which results in reduced anxiety and feelings of pain relief, relaxation, and clarity. When taking CBD, it will enhance the brain’s serotonin receptors bringing you those feelings of clarity and reduced anxiety. CBD cannot and will not sedate you! If you’re thinking about taking CBD but are concerned about driving after, do a test run! Take your CBD dose and see how you feel. Trust us, you really won’t notice anything other than feeling calm, clear, and collected.

WHAT THE STUDIES SAY

In the last couple years, scientists have done extensive research on the effects of cannabinoids while driving. CBD does not impair drivers. However, you should use your best judgement before hopping behind the wheel after using CBD.

SHOULD I USE CBD BEFORE GETTING BEHIND THE WHEEL?

The debate around CBD and driving has very little to do with the fact that it is a cannabinoid, but rather that it can be seen as a mild sedative. In 2020, researchers conducted studies on driving while using CBD and found no correlation to driving impaired. This is great for those who use CBD for anxiety, epilepsy, chronic pain, or anything they need daily relief from!
