Ten healthy volunteers (6 males and 4 females) were administered a placebo (glucose capsule and orange juice), a 200 mg CBD capsule and orange juice, 1 g/kg alcohol in orange juice and a 200mg CBD capsule plus 1 g/kg alcohol in orange juice in a double-blind, crossover, randomized design spaced one week apart. Researchers measured motor performance, psychomotor performance, a one- minute time production task, subjective effects (66 item adjective-pair semantic differential), and breathalyzer estimations of blood alcohol levels.
