As we all know there is always a reaction when substances are combined, especially when alcohol is involved and being CBD oil is no exception. Many researchers are into the debate to explain effects interaction of CBD oil with alcohol however as per my research it is not suggested to take while you are on the treatment. There is no clear evidence of mixing cannabis oil with alcohol or not to mix. Several clinical studies show that CBD oil may be used for alcohol induced medical conditions like neurodegeneration. By which it cannot be mixed while under any treatment.
You can also do your own research by reading medical journals case studies and clinical results so that you will get to know the conflicts and controversies on these combinations. Like this, I have made a special report after studied several reports on researches conducted by health centers and I gathered some possible impacts based on the results. Here I have given the nutshell on my whole study on CBD oil and alcohol. Read on to get yourself informed about scientific reactions when CBD oil and alcohol gets mixed.
The reaction of alcohol and CBD oil
The alcohol reacts with brain neurotransmitters so does cannabidiol compound in the CBD oil. When two mixed together, alcohol affects the effectiveness of CBD on the body.
The various research was conducted to find out the reaction of alcohol and CBD oil. Few of them are given below.
[NCBI – The US National Library of Medicines made a report on the research conducted by medical researchers on the Interaction of cannabidiol and alcohol in human begins]
The test was conducted on 10 volunteers by giving alcohol and CBD (200 Mg) for one week.
Research reports given by NCBI says, when alcohol mixed with alcohol plus CBD, it results in impairment of psychomotor and motor actions as it reduces the alcohol level in blood. As it reduces the poisoning of alcohol to the body at the same time it does not allow CBD to do its purpose.
By the way, in this study they have not used CBD alone, it was alcohol plus CBD used in this study.
The other study by Dr. Scott Lukas from Medical School depicts that smoking cannabis or vaping CBD oil after drinking will decline the absorption of alcohol level into the body. This makes people think that when CBD oil and alcohol added, it will not give any negative effects.
But several other medical advisors say that CBD oil has a different ratio of THC content, as alcohol and THC have its own role in interacting with brain neurons, it is better not to mix it.
When you give some time gap between the consumption of CBD oil and alcohol, maybe the effects would have been different. So, I tried my trials with this concept to understand what is really people like me going through.
I have taken CBD oil of 0.75 oz three times a day for my back pain. For two days, I could not get relief from back pain as I took CBD oil along with alcohol mixed with orange juice. I haven’t felt like I was drunk as well I don’t feel good about my back pain. So I thought of trying on the other way, over the next three days I took it without alcohol consumption and yes, the CBD oil has done its purpose very well. I understood that neither alcohol nor CBD oil resulted well when I mixed it. Maybe it is due to my body acceptance nature and my metabolism. It would be different from research conducted. So, my suggestion is to not try anything before you completely know about it.
Impacts of this mixture
As I said, the impact will differ from each individual. It depends on how you take it and it might produce a positive or negative effect. There was no study firmly states that it is okay to mix or it is not good to try this mixture
When talking about a few common test results, if this mixture reduces the alcohol absorption level, you might want to take even more of it and you ended up drinking heavily. By this way, you would cross the saturation level. This regular practice will put you in the habit of over drinking and greatly affect the neurons. It may cause liver damages and blood pressure.
As the half-life of CBD oil was estimated around 1 to 2 days, the effectiveness helps you that long. If you are planned to drink tonight, it is advised to keep it low since you want to feel the effectiveness. Though there is no research have come up with the proper conclusion it is better to stay in your own limit. So better not literally mix alcohol and CBD oil on your own. If you already have done that, then you can decide whether to combine both or not based on your personal experiences. If your body can manage to relieve you from the chronic pain, even after you drank alcohol along with taking CBD oil then observe the impacts like any side effects before continuing.
By now, these are the overview of all the facts and study results that I have collected so after in terms of combining CBD oil and alcohol. It is seen that effects after mixing these two combinations are not that clearly sorted out by researchers. The effect will change with respect to every person, so take it carefully and know your limit before you proceed.
