Frequently Asked Questions
What is CBD Oil?
CBD, otherwise known as cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid found in the cannabis sativa plant. It’s typically extracted from industrial hemp. Learn more at our dedicated What is CBD page.
What is CBD Oil Used For?
CBD Oil has a number of potential therapeutic uses. Some people use it for addressing symptoms of pain, anxiety, depression, nausea, seizures and more. However, keep in mind that CBD is not an FDA approved treatment option for any condition.
What is CBD Oil Made From?
CBD oil is made by extracting the compound from high-grade industrial hemp. Extraction can be completed using either CO2 or alcohol. At Myriad Wellness, we use both techniques to offer our customers more options. Our RAW product line is made with an alcohol extraction, while our PURE line is made with a CO2 extraction. Learn more about our process.
What is the Difference Between CBD and THC?
There are many cannabinoids in the cannabis sativa plant – the two most commonly talked about are CBD and THC. CBD is a non-psychoactive component that has significant therapeutic value. THC, on the other hand, is highly psychoactive and causes the “high” associated with marijuana.
What is the Difference Between Hemp and Marijuana?
Both hemp and marijuana come from the same plant, cannabis sativa. Marijuana is cultivated for medical and recreational use as a drug, while hemp is cultivated for industrial uses. Marijuana contains high levels of THC, the main psychoactive compound that’s responsible for the “high”. Hemp contains very little THC, if any. We make our products from strains of industrial hemp that are high in CBD and extremely low in THC.
Is CBD Legal?
CBD oil that is derived from hemp plants is legal in most states. We sell only hemp-derived CBD oil. That said, CBD oil derived that is from marijuana, or CBD oil with THC levels higher than 0.3%, is subject to different laws and may only be legal where there are medical or recreational marijuana laws in place. We encourage customers to research laws in their area before buying.
Does CBD Get You High?
There are no psychoactive effects from CBD, so it does not cause a “high” of any kind. THC is the main psychoactive compound that is responsible for the high from marijuana, and our products contain extremely low levels of THC.
How Can I Use CBD Products?
Most of our CBD products are taken orally, either by swallowing a capsule or administering tincture under the tongue. We also offer topical creams. Learn more at our How to Use CBD page (internal link to how to use CBD page)
