Today there is no legal text which stipulates the prohibition of the consumption of CBD before taking the car. Deli Hemp warns you against the relaxing effects of CBD which can however make you less vigilant and therefore become a source of danger.
Using CBD while driving, what does the law say?
Since November 2020, the sale and consumption of CBD is authorized therefore that the product’s THC content does not exceed 0.2%. Even though CBD is legal today, if you are stopped driving your car for a police check, it is indeed THC that could be a problem for you. Indeed with a positive saliva test you can incur the withdrawal of 6 points on the driving license but also up to 4,500 euros of fine and two years of imprisonment.
In order not to take any risks, it is better for you to choose a CBD that does not contain no trace of THC. For this you simply need to choose a quality CBD product, and origin controlled to be absolutely certain that the THC level mentioned is in force with European standards. Today it is possible to verify the amount of cannabinoids ingested via a CBD oil unlike CBD flowers, or the amounts of inhaled active molecules are less traceable. To summarize but also from a legal point of view, nothing prevents you from consuming CBD just before driving. Despite everything Deli Hemp warns you that in the event of a police check, the tiny presence of THC could be a problem for you enough to outlaw you. Let’s not forget that you have to wait 6 hours in order to eliminate the THC from the body.
What effects does CBD have on driving?
Even if today the consumption of CBD is authorized, the Deli Hemp team advises you to be careful while driving. First of all, it is best to know your body’s reactions to CBD. Indeed the action of CBD is specific to the metabolism of each.

Even if you are a connoisseur of CBD and have complete control over its effects on your body, Deli Hemp does not recommend that you drive after consuming CBD.
Among the many benefits of CBD, we can find soothing and relaxing virtues. Even though this feeling may seem so pleasant to you when you are behind the wheel, it is better to be vigilant and to be within your means. By consuming CBD you therefore increase the risk of road accidents due to your inattention.
Indeed, consuming CBD in high doses could lead to significant muscle relaxation.

Moreover, depending on the mode of consumption of CBD, whether oral or inhalation, allow between 2 and 6 hours for the effects of cannabinoids to wear off. Today CBD is certainly harmless to health but can lower your vigilance on the road and therefore cause many accidents.
Deli Hemp advises you to consume CBD only when you are in moments of relaxation and leisure without having to get behind the wheel right after. Thus you will avoid endangering people on the road or simply endangering yourself.
