    This article got me thinking Is It Safe To Vape CBD And Drive? Know The Limits mainly because I vape cbd and drive all the time! Do any of you guys do the same? Have you run into any problems? I would love to hear individuals stories to put me at ease or to maybe not do it?

    My initial reaction is: if ya gotta ask you probably shouldn't.
    Being is I don't use the stuff it's an uneducated response though.

    Perhaps it's like drinking herbal tea or taking a melotonin pill and driving? Tolerance would play a big role. Me personally, I wouldn't.

    It’s not psychoactive and could make you more relaxed and alert, but it may make you too relaxed. Just my :2c:

    I use CBD, full spectrum, sublingually. About 25mg in the morning, 25mg at night hasn't affected me in any way when I'm driving. Maybe a little less agitated with my fellow drivers!

    If I Did use it and got into an accident, even if I didn't have the Law after me for it, I reckon I'd feel pretty awful about it. Especially if someone got hurt.

    CBD is to THC as Sharps or Odoules, (I know I butchered those names, I don't drink) is to actual bear. CBD is no more relaxing than chamomile tea, or the smell of lavender.
    Full spectrum, esp. that with terpenes, such as the chemical compounds responsible for the smell of lavender (which is in most blue strains, btw) would have various effects based on what's known as the profile. Linalool, lavender terp, is relaxing, as is mycerine. Other terps are stimulating, such as linoline.
    I seriously doubt full spectrum CBD would have any effects to be worried about while operating heavy machinery. Of course, I'm not a doctor, nor play one on TV. The prudent advise, is, before operating any heavy machinery, learn how YOU are affected, by anything that you may have a concern about. Be it cold medicine, antihistamines, that sleepy time tea that has valarian root you got at a health good store, or anything else that may be, relaxing... Couch lock, munchies, or other such issues? I doubt CBD is capable of such ...... madness.

    I've been vaping CBD flower lately and haven't noticed any sort of impairment or heavy sedation. But it depends on one's body chemistry, dose, etc - so, YMMV.

    Must say that I've been floored by how wonderful hemp flower is. The effects are definitely noticeable to me - relaxed, less anxious. Subtle and enjoyable. The taste and smell of the vapor is amazing. It's been helping me to focus and feel less stressed out. I've been vaping .1g every morning, and another .2ish throughout the day. If my math is right, I've been getting about 30-40mg of CBD per day. FWIW

    This.

    Personally I find that a significant oral dose of full spectrum oil does make me feel very relaxed potentially to the point where I would not drive. But the CBD isolate that I vape on a regular basis does not.
    If in doubt, then don't.

    I am not a major CBD "conneseur." But I really think you'd have to be vaping a very high dose to have to worry,

    Also they look for THC not CBD when they pull you over... At least as of NOW they do.

    If you have been driving on it a long time without issues, I can't imagine you would suddenly have them thanks to some article.

    When in doubt, just use your common sense.
