Cannabidiol (CBD) in cannabis does not impair driving

Research shows CBD safe for driving and THC effects fade in hours
"Scientists from the Lambert Initiative have shown that a medically active component of cannabis does not impact driving ability and moderate THC intoxication lasts a few hours, with implications for drug-driving laws and managing medical cannabis."..."Lead author Dr Thomas Arkell said: “These findings indicate for the first time that CBD, when given without THC, does not affect a subject’s ability to drive. That’s great news for those using or considering treatment using CBD-based products.”"


I know quite a few people who would try CBD except for the current implications when driving or at work.

I did not know that.

Frankly, I'm pretty illiterate on CBD. I know it's widely used to prevent spasms and such but that's about it. The big question I've always had is that there's a disconnect on whether or not you can get CBD without THC.

I remember reading an article years back when I got into it where they tested 10 top brand CBD oils and found THC in every single one of them.

I think that's part of where the distrust in CBD comes from. If it's PURE CBD that's one thing. If it's regular old cannabutter made in someone's kitchen then you are going to get THC along with that CBD.
