Can I use CBD while Riding a Motorcycle?
Updated: May 12
Do motorcycle and CBD mix? It turns out they are as compatible as peanut butter and chocolate.
CBD, or cannabidiol, is not psychoactive in the way that THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is. Psychoactive substances can alter one's mood, perception, or behavior by affecting the brain and central nervous system.
CBD, on the other hand, does not cause psychoactive effects. Instead, CBD interacts with other receptors in the body, such as the serotonin and vanilloid receptors, which can have a range of effects that are used as a part of a healthy regime to fight anxiety and reducing pain and inflammation.
It is important to note that some CBD products may contain trace amounts of THC, which could potentially cause psychoactive effects. However, legally sold CBD products in the US must contain less than 0.3% THC.
How long does CBD stay in your system? - Since it takes approximately five half-lives to completely eliminate a drug from the human body, it's likely that CBD stays in the system for about 85 hours, or about 3.5 days” says Dr. Johnson-Arbor, medical director of Hyperbaric Medicine in the Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine.
Is CBD legal? – Yes. The 2018 Farm Bill removed hemp from the legal definition of marijuana in the Controlled Substances Act. This made some hemp-derived CBD products with less than 0.3 percent THC federally legal. However, CBD products over 0.3 percent THC are consider illegal federally.
To recap, CBD doesn’t get you high. It can be used as part of a regimen to increase your experience on two wheels.
