If you’ve been taking your CBD products for some time now or have just started taking some of them, you are likely to be interested in the way they work with other substances. Compatibility of CBD oil with food and alcohol-free drinks does not cause doubts though. But what about alcohol? Can you mix it with your CBD treatment or should you avoid it? What is the best place to buy CBD oil? In this overview, we answer these and other questions you may have about the topic. Enjoy your reading!

Should you consult a doctor before mixing alcohol drinks with CBD?

Surely, you need to do that. If you have any health conditions that you cure with CBD oil, asking your doctor about possible outcomes of adding it to your booze is a must. By doing so, you will know the right dose and way of mixing these substances to get the best effect. Also, your doctor will advise you on the high-quality brands of your favorite CBD products that go best with spirits. 

Can you drive after taking your CBD oil with alcohol?

Definitely not. We strongly recommend you to refrain from driving after drinking regardless of CBD concentration in your booze. Since alcohol can make you feel sick, sleepy, unable to control yourself and more vulnerable to the danger on roads, there is no point in getting behind the wheel after drinking. CBD oil added to your drink does not eliminate or reduce the effects mentioned above. 

How to add CBD to alcohol?

The answer to this question  depends on the kind of drink you want to taste and your CBD product. If you think that adding a few drops of CBD oil to your glass of beer, wine, or whiskey is a good idea, we have to tell you the truth: the oil is likely to form a layer on top of your booze and spread its smell. 

Instead, you can mix the CBD oil with other oils to increase its absorption. For this purpose, it is better to mix oils made of plants, e.g. nut oil. 

What effect should you expect from a “CBD plus alcohol” cocktail?

Let’s take a look at the effect these substances have on the human body aside. CBD helps to sleep better, train more effectively, and rest faster. Booze suppresses a human central nervous system and slows motor coordination of the one who takes it. Together, CBD oil and spirit can double their effects, and make a person feel even more sedated. Hence, if you expect some fun from taking such a cocktail, think twice. 

How old do you have to be to buy CBD oil?

The majority of trusted manufacturers of CBD oil and other hemp derivatives sell it only to those who are older than 18 years old. They take their business very seriously and would not lose their license by selling their products to kids. 

Can you buy CBD oil online?

Second, find out  as much as possible about brands you were advised to try out. Third, check their accreditation by the FDA to manufacture and sell CBD products. Finally, find the website and make your order.
