CBD News Blog – Do CBD and THC impact your ability to drive safely? A new study hopes to offer some answers. Researchers found that using CBD does not impair driving, and that the effects of moderate amounts of THC are mild 40 minutes after use and have no impact at all after four hours.
The study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, involved a small group of 26 test subjects. Researchers from the Lambert Initiative for Cannabinoid Therapeutics at the University of Sydney and Maastricht University in the Netherlands worked together on the report.
The researchers hope their findings can provide a foundation for evidence-based laws around driving and the use of cannabis products. It’s a situation that has vexed law enforcement who use tests that may show past cannabis use but do not mean the person is currently impaired.
The findings also could prove significant for those who take CBD for medicinal reasons.
