DRINKING CBD AND ALCOHOL?
THIS SAY CURRENT STUDIES AND SCIENCE
CBD and alcohol are both substances that are very popular in Germany. A cold beer after work or one or two more at the weekend is probably an absolute tradition in the country. But what exactly happens when you take the combined CBD and alcohol? As with the alcohol-THC combination, are there any interactions? And what do current studies and science say? You can find out more in this article.
As a cannabis patient, I use medicinal cannabis on a daily basis. But there was also a time before my pharmaceutical medication. As a young man he liked to combine alcohol with THC. I found the effect to be quite pleasant. However, I have never taken CBD and alcohol in combination, because for health reasons I have not consumed alcohol for over 5 years. So subjectively I cannot make a contribution to the CBD and alcohol combination. So let’s look at the more important and crucial part: What do studies and science say about CBD and alcohol consumption.
THAT’S WHAT STUDIES AND SCIENCE SAY
A placebo study from 1979 examined in more detail how the combination of both substances affects the physical body. The placebo group received alcohol without the CBD and the other received the combination. Significant impairments in motor and psychomotor skills were found in both groups. There were no notable differentiations here. In relation, however, a significantly lower alcohol blood level was measured in the CBD and alcohol test subjects. No great differences were observed between the pharmacological effects of the effects of alcohol. One could conclude from the study that the active ingredient cannabidiol / CBD influences the blood alcohol level.
SHOULD YOU DRIVE A CAR UNDER CBD AND ALCOHOL WHEN COMBINED WITH CANNABIDIOL?
We can answer this question with a resounding no. Because, as the study mentioned, the only significant difference is that less alcohol is detected in the alcohol blood level. The motor and psychomotor skills, as well as the pharmacological effects of alcohol, remain severely impairing. In other words: alcohol consumption remains life-threatening for the driver himself, regardless of whether it is with or without the influence of CBD, but also for other drivers.
WHAT DO CONSUMERS REPORT WHO DRINK CBD AND ALCOHOL TOGETHER?
According to consumer reports, the combination of both substances could increase relaxing and sedating effects. With increased alcohol effect, the inhibition threshold and the ability to coordinate could decrease.
ARE THERE BENEFITS FROM THE CBD AND ALCOHOL COMPOUND?
Consumers repeatedly report a lower hangover effect when CBD was also taken. So it might be good for you if you take some CBD towards the end of your alcohol consumption to reduce the hangover.
There is also evidence that the beneficial health effects of CBD oil reduce the physically fatal consequences of alcohol.
How extreme is alcohol consumption on the human organism
“A glass of wine a day is good for the heart.” Or, no alcohol is also no solution. We humans love to talk about our alcohol consumption and justify our consumption with such slogans. Are we right with such sayings? Or is alcohol in moderation actually hazardous to health? Studies in the first decade of the millennium even found that alcohol was healthy in moderation. But now to the logical result.
