Study finds that using CBD alone has no negative impact on driving ability

Researchers say they have determined that using CBD does not impair driving performance and consuming moderate amounts of THC produces only mild impairment lasting up to four hours. That’s the conclusion of a new study that involved 26 healthy participants inhaling vaporized cannabis containing different mixes of THC and CBD before driving 100 kilometres under controlled conditions on public highways. The subjects received weed containing mainly THC (enough to cause strong feelings of intoxication), mainly CBD, both THC and CBD or placebo pot, notes a press release from the University of Sydney. Using the four different types of cannabis in random order, the hour-long drives in a dual-control car with a driving instructor present were taken 40 minutes and four hours after consumption. The standard deviation of vehicle position (called SDLP) measures considered in testing driving ability included lane weaving, swerving and over-correcting.

With cannabis containing THC or a THC/CBD mixture, there was mild impairment at the 40-minute drive mark, but not after four hours. “The SDLP following vaporized THC-dominant and THC/CBD-equivalent cannabis compared with placebo was significantly greater at 40 to 100 minutes, but not 240 to 300 minutes after vaporization,” the study states. “There were no significant differences between CBD-dominant cannabis and placebo,” authors write. Led by the Lambert Initiative for Cannabinoid Therapeutics at the University of Sydney in Australia and conducted at Maastricht University in the Netherlands, “these findings…
