Cannabis CBD – Swiss Road traffic
CBD is on everyone's lips and is provoking numerous issues. What is the CBD? What form is it in? What are its effects? What do we know about the risks and what is its legal status? Swiss dependencies association for health promotion and for addiction prevention provides the answers in a new information sheet. Poor Hemp in THC and other CBD-based products are regularly sold in an increasing number of commercial spaces. This apparent contradiction between "Cannabis" and "legality" creates uncertainties as well as the fact that these products are destined for very different uses.
For this reason Swiss dependencies has prepared an Information sheet that collects the information available on products based on CBD.
Poor Hemp in THC (less than 1%) is not subject to the Narcotics Act. CBD is given a relaxing effect without causing it to be inebriated, but the long-term effects are still little known. Although CBD is a product that poses fewer risks to health than Hemp-rich THC, caution is a must, particularly when smoked, because combustion produces substances that are harmful to health. Drivers should renounce the consumption of CBD, as it is difficult to estimate when the legal limit of 1.5 micrograms of THC per liter of blood is reached.
In road traffic law there is a legal presumption that, in the presence of certain substances (example THC), there is an inability to drive. Tobacco substitutes contain a minimum amount of THC (less than 1%).
Within road traffic, the consumption of such substitute tobacco articles may therefore result in exceeding the allowable THC limit value in the blood (1.5 micrograms of THC per liter of blood) and rendering the person unfit for driving.
