A significant amount of research has been done on the different ways that various cannabinoid formulations can affect an individual’s driving skills, telephone or computer skills, memory or even work productivity.
However, as researchers do not know the exact cannabinoid that may cause any concerning issues, they do admit that it is likely that CBD may impact any of these areas mentioned above. You should therefore exercise remarkable caution when indulging in order to maintain a positive work environment.
Further studies on cannabinoids and how they affect IQ and memory have shown that no significant changes in IQ have been observed.
The first study to suggest a decrease in IQ was a British study that found that a seven-point drop in IQ was observed when individuals use cannabinoids daily. However, a subsequent study conducted in New Zealand found no notable change in an individual’s IQ.
Latter findings received more support from another study that was conducted in the United States which not only had a greater number of participants than the former studies combined but also had a number of identical twins. The researchers in the U.S. study found no change in IQ in the identical twin pairs when one of the twins was not using cannabinoid formulations while the other was.
However, it should be noted that significantly heavy use of CBD formulations may bring about changes in an individual’s memory. If you are experiencing issues with your short-term memory, studies show that short-term memory deficits resolve in about three weeks. Recent data suggests that an individual’s memory function will return seven days after cessation of consuming a cannabinoid formulation.
When it comes to driving, one should never drive under the influence of any mind-altering substance, including drugs and alcohol. However, one company holds 55,000 patient-years supporting their product, which demonstrates no increased risk of parking tickets or motor vehicle violations when on different cannabinoid formulations.
Despite this though, it’s still hard to say whether cannabinoids contribute to any risk when it comes to driving.
Other individuals may also be concerned about how CBD impacts their telephone and computer skills. CBD isn’t a psychoactive, meaning it can’t get a user high as marijuana does. It may, however, result in a sense of calm. Researchers hypothesize that no measurable difference is observed with regard to either of the above skills when use of cannabinoids is considered. While some subtle changes are noted, those changes are dependent on how well individuals have memorized their jobs and also how long individuals have been at their jobs.
