Is it safe to mix CBD and alcohol?

CBD or Cannabidiol, is popularly used as a non-psychoactive to help ease symptoms of depression, anxiety, inflammation, and sleeping problems. Used alongside alcohol, CBD can increase the mellowness you feel with a longer-lasting effect, according to Georgetown University Medical Center’s Professor of Neurology and Biochemistry James Giordano.

Some studies have also shown that CBD and alcohol lowered motor and psychomotor performance.

While there is still limited research on the topic, the best way is to drink in moderation, especially if it’s your first time taking CBD. Know how much CBD you can take to feel your best, but remember to keep the liquor in moderation.
