Some people enjoy the soothing effects, while others experience a horrible faded high.
If you are an adult, you already know that mixing substances is not always a success. Sometimes you get the results you want; other times you lie on the floor lousy and wondering how much longer it will be before it's over. The same goes for CBD and alcohol.
The combination of cannabis and alcohol is well documented. Some people enjoy the smooth effects, while others experience a terrible cross-faded high, which is often more difficult to handle than a simple drunken experience.
When it comes to CBD and alcohol, there isn't much data, even now that there are some manufacturers in the United States that make packaged CBD alcoholic drinks. Of the few studies conducted, some experts theorize that alcohol and CBD can maximize each other's effects, for better or for worse.
While some may assume that people would be less inhibited and more relaxed, as these are some of the most common positive side effects of both CBD and alcohol, a study from 1979, published in Psychopharmacology, that the combination of CBD and alcohol can cause significant changes in mood and behavior.
More recent research, published last year in Experimental and Clinical Psychopharmacology, concluded that "there are too few human studies to draw conclusions about CBD and alcohol interactions".
For the time being there is not enough information to get an accurate picture and fully estimate the results for people who combine alcohol and CBD.
It's important to note that CBD is said to have an effect in helping restore alcohol addiction and coping with some hangover side effects.
It is said that consistent use of the compound can protect people's livers from alcohol damage, reduce withdrawal symptoms, and reduce the chance of relapse. When it comes to treating more basic hangover symptoms, CBD is said to be able to reduce nausea and headaches.
