The Verdict: Does CBD Affect Your Driving?

Millions of Americans use CBD for various purposes, such as pain relief, anxiety, depression, sleep disorders, and more. While CBD doesn’t generally cause any harmful symptoms, is it safe to consume CBD and drive?

“This is a highly important topic, given the increasing prevalence of CBD use by the public for a variety of medical and psychiatric symptoms,” said Thomas D. Marcotte, PhD, co-director of the Center for Medicinal Cannabis Research at the University of California, San Diego

A new study has concluded that CBD doesn’t impair the ability to drive, even at higher doses.

“Although CBD is generally considered ‘non-intoxicating,’ its effects on safety-sensitive tasks are still being established,” study author Danielle McCartney, PhD, a researcher at the University of Sydney’s Lambert Initiative for Cannabinoid Therapeutics, said in a news release. “Our study is the first to confirm that, when consumed on its own, CBD is driver-safe.”

While this is good news for the general public’s safety, it is best to take the serving size for CBD products, or as prescribed by your doctor. If you experience any troubling symptoms, contact your doctor right away.
