What is CBD used for?
Many people use CBD to promote a health state known as homeostasis, the body’s natural tendency to maintain a healthy balance in all its systems. Cannabinoids are an integral part of the human body’s ability to regulate and balance a wide variety of physiological systems. CBD is also used by some to treat particular ailments such as seizure disorders, mood disorders, anxiety disorders and others.
Is CBD legal?
The short answer is, yes! While hemp-derived CBD is legal in all 50 states, 'marijuana'-derived CBD is not legal federally. ... It classifies “marijuana” as any plant of the cannabis family that contains greater than 0.3% THC. In December of 2018, the United States Congress approved the final 2018 version of Section 7607 of the Agricultural Act of 2014 (the “Farm Bill”), which removes “hemp,” a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant species, from the Federal Controlled Substances Act (“CSA”) and legalizes hemp cultivation as an agricultural commodity similar to grain, meat, and dairy.
Although CBD is used as a component in a drug known as Epidiolex, which is used to treat seizure disorders, CBD oil is not considered to be a drug. Instead, it is a dietary supplement. Also, CBD does not cause a high like marijuana.
All of Mylaso CBD oil products are made from PCR hemp, contain zero THC and can be shipped to all 50 U.S. states. However, CBD oil made from marijuana can only be purchased in states with medical marijuana programs.
Is CBD Safe?

- Using CBD suppositories vaginally or anally
However, if you don’t like the taste of hemp and want an easier way to see how many milligrams of CBD you’re taking, swallowing CBD capsules could be the best way to take CBD.
Alternatively, if you want to avoid digestion completely (or have isolated pain for example), then applying CBD skin care or using CBD suppositories could arguably be the best method for you. To see the best way to take CBD depending on your preferences, read our guide on how to use CBD oil.
Is CBD considered a cure for certain conditions?
CBD oil is used by many people to treat a variety of conditions. However, it has not been approved by the FDA in the treatment of any conditions aside from particular seizure disorders. Nonetheless, there have been numerous studies which suggest that CBD may be an effective therapy for a wide range of health issues, and many U.S. states have approved the use of CBD to treat many of these ailments. Consult with a qualified medical professional to determine if your condition is treatable with CBD.
Is CBD safe to carry through an airport?
Yes. Rest assured that CBD can be transported on a plane. Authorities are not concerned with hemp CBD oil. They are concerned with interstate trafficking of marijuana and other drugs. Also, for this reason, drug-sniffing dogs are not trained to detect hemp CBD oil.
Is it possible to take too much CBD?
CBD is completely non-toxic. We have never heard of anyone overdosing on CBD. However, extremely large servings of CBD may cause drowsiness.
Will I need a marijuana card or doctor’s prescription to use CBD products?
No. CBD is not classified as a drug. You will not be required to produce a medical marijuana card in order to purchase CBD online. However, some states have laws allowing doctors to recommend CBD to patients for particular conditions.
Will CBD oil show up on a drug test?
No. Drug tests do not test for CBD. CBD cannot produce a false positive on a test designed to look for THC. As long as you’re using products which have all the THC removed, such as those produced by Mylaso, and you are not using marijuana products, you will not fail a drug test.
Does CBD interact with other medications?
Studies have shown that CBD may affect the metabolism of certain classes of drugs, but effects have been shown to be minimal. Much more research needs to be done in this area. If you are taking prescription medications, consult with a qualified medical professional.
How long will it take to feel the effects of CBD?
In some cases, such as when using a vaporizer or sublingual tincture, users often report almost immediate results. However, most of the effects of CBD are subtle and take some time to be detectable — usually half an hour or more. Personal results will vary.
Where is your hemp grown?
Industrial hemp is like any other crop. It is farmed all over the world, including approximately 40 U.S. states. The special PCR hemp used to produce Mylaso products is grown in Colorado.
Is your product organic? Vegan friendly?
Yes. Mylaso products are grown using organic methods and contain other organically grown ingredients. All of Mylaso's products are vegan friendly, except for the softgels. We are hoping to introduce our next generation softgel in the fall, which will be 100% vegan.
I have a gluten allergy. Can I use your products?
Yes. All Mylaso products are gluten-free.
Can I give my pet CBD?
Yes, CBD is safe for pets. Most customers use our Dog Treats for dogs and our natural flavored tinctures for other pets. We do recommend that you consult with a veterinarian who is familiar with your pet and knowledgeable in the use of CBD oil in pet health.
Products and Definitions
What does CBD stand for?
CBD stands for cannabidiol – one of over 100 natural cannabinoids found in cannabis sativa (one of the Latin names for this type of cannabis). It has a variety of health benefits, is legal in most countries, non-toxic and completely non-psychoactive. It is just one of several different molecules known as cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. CBD can act as a neurotransmitter and is also known to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
What is hemp oil?
Hemp oil is simply another word used for CBD oil, as both are terms to mean cannabis extracts. But be aware that there is also a huge misunderstanding about the difference between hemp seed oil and hemp oil, with many people believing they are the same.
Hemp seed oil is derived purely from hemp seeds, and is used in food preparation but does not contain CBD or any other cannabinoids.
What is medical cannabis / medical marijuana?
Medical cannabis, or medical marijuana, can refer to the use of cannabis to treat disease or improve symptoms. However, there is no single agreed-upon definition. Mostly, this term is used to define plants that contain high amounts of THC, but it is becoming more complicated to define what it is, due to the fact that we have recently found a lot of cannabis plants with many other molecules.
Medical cannabis / medical marijuana is a word used very frequently in the thousands of medical cannabis shops in the USA where they sell cannabis plants legally under state law. Most of the medical cannabis/ medical marijuana is sold for recreational purposes. Very few cannabis products on the market have been through any clinical trials. Unfortunately, the trials that have taken place are very small with inconclusive results.
What are Cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are active compounds produced by all cannabis plants. They account for most of the health benefits of cannabis. Cannabinoids found in plants are technically called phytocannabinoids. Phytocannabinoids can mimic neurotransmitters that we call endocannabinoids, which are produced naturally by our bodies.
How to take CBD oil drops?
CBD tincture can be placed under the tongue using the dropper provided (like CBD oil).
CBD oil drops are typically liquid extracts of hemp combined with either vegetable glycerin (VG), alcohol or oil. In fact, the word ‘tincture’ is used to describe any form of medication that is kept in an alcohol solution.
C02-extracted CBD oils tend to provide a safer and cleaner way to use CBD products. This is because these types of extracts leave no risk of residual solvents and other impurities.
However, CBD oil is another fantastic way to use CBD extracts if CBD oils are hard to find. As with CBD oil, CBD tincture can bypass digestion if taken sublingually and so reach the bloodstream much faster than other methods.
What is the endocannabinoid system?
The endocannabinoid system is a homeostatic regulator of neuronal activity and almost every other physiological system in the body. It has a regulatory role on pain, inflammation, memory, emotion, sleep and metabolic function.
It comprises a vast network of receptors in the brain, central and peripheral nervous system and cannabis-like compounds called endocannabinoids.
It has been likened to a dimmer switch, constantly working to bring balance when there is too much or too little activity in the body.
Plant cannabinoids like CBD and THC interact with the endocannabinoid system, which researchers believe may explain some of the reported physiological effects of the cannabis plant.
Scientists also believe that when this system isn’t working correctly, diseases can occur. This is known as Endocannabinoid Deficiency and could be at the root of many conditions such as migraines, fibromyalgia, IBS and multiple sclerosis.
Recent research has demonstrated that active compounds from other plants species such as carrot (Daucus carota), kava (Piper methyscum), New Zealand liverwort (Radula marginata), ginger (Zingiber officinale) and black pepper (Piper nigrum) contain compounds which interact with the endocannabinoid system.
What is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)?
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the cannabinoid found most in abundance in the cannabis plant. It has a psychoactive effect, hence plant varieties that have been bred for recreational use are particularly high in THC.
That is not to say that THC doesn’t have any therapeutic use. It has been found to be effective for reducing nausea and vomiting experienced by patients during chemotherapy, can slow down the progression of glaucoma and help reduce nerve pain.
How do Mylaso CBD products differ from others?
Mylaso products are specifically developed for high potency and easy absorption. All of our products contain THC-free, full spectrum CBD oil. We also use a patented nanoemulsion method which makes our CBD water soluble, resulting in a higher bioavailability than standard products. This means more of the CBD gets put to use by your body. Our CBD oil is extracted using a gentle process that does not involve harsh solvents that can degrade beneficial compounds. We use only the finest available ingredients in our products. Our tinctures are the only full spectrum THC-free tinctures available. If someone else claims to have a full spectrum 100% THC-free product, ask to look at their lab results.
What does the CBD oil / hemp oil contain?
CBD, Chlorophyll, Alkanes, Nitrogenous compounds, Amino acids, Sugars, Aldehydes, Alcohols, Ketones, Flavonoids, Glycosides, Vitamins and Pigments.
Research has found that cannabis/hemp contains over 400 molecules – and in recent research has uncovered a group of molecules that cannabis produces called cannabinoids, which are mostly responsible for its effects. There are over 120 cannabinoids including CBD, THC, CBG, CBC and CBN.
The most well known cannabinoid is THC, which is psychoactive and responsible for the high. However, at Mylaso we produce products with a high concentration of the cannabinoid CBD – which does not give the high.
What does Full Spectrum mean?
The term full spectrum refers to CBD oil products that contain a combination of cannabinoids, terpenes and other beneficial compounds found in PCR hemp. While many CBD oil products are made using CBD isolate, Mylaso full spectrum oils maintain the same concentrations of these beneficial compounds that are found in the original PCR hemp plant.
Is Full Spectrum CBD oil psychoactive?
Mylaso CBD products are made with full spectrum oils which have had all traces of THC removed. Our products do not cause a high.
Some of the effects reported by CBD oil users include improved mood, reduced stress and anxiety, increased attention and focus, pain relief and others. However, organic compounds such as CBD can produce different effects in different people. Your results may vary.
What are terpenes?
Terpenes are a class of volatile hydrocarbon compounds produced in the flower clusters of the cannabis plant. Terpenes are what gives cannabis its distinct aromas and have been utilized by humans for millennia in a healing modality known as aromatherapy. Terpenes are recognized as safe for human consumption by the Food and Drug Association and are used in a wide variety of food and cosmetic products.
How much CBD is in your products?
Mylaso offers some of the most potent CBD products available. However, the amount of CBD in Mylaso products varies from product to product. Please refer to the product label for exact concentrations of CBD in each product.
What is the ideal serving size?
The ideal serving size of CBD for each person depends on a wide range of variables, including the reason it is being used, the method of administration, sex, age, weight, diet, exercise and so on. It also depends on the product. Servings of 5 to 50 milligrams per day are commonly reported for health maintenance, mood enhancement and minor pain reduction. Higher servings, although not harmful, are not recommended unless being used to treat a particular disorder, in which case it is recommended that you consult with a qualified medical professional.

Do you test for potency, pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals and residual solvents?
How should I store CBD products? Do I need to refrigerate?
What is the endocannabinoid system?
The human endocannabinoid system, or ECS, is a system of neurotransmitters and cell membrane receptors. Neurotransmitters such as endocannabinoids are produced by the central nervous system and interact with cannabinoid receptors on cell membranes to adjust physiological processes at a cellular level.
What is the entourage effect?
Full spectrum CBD oil, such as that used in Mylaso products, contains a variety of cannabinoids and terpenes as well as other beneficial compounds. Each of the compounds has particular effects on the human body. Because terpenes can affect how the body responds to cannabinoids, the combined effect is often greater than the sum of the individual effects. The overall effect produced is known as the entourage effect. Non-full spectrum products do not have the benefit of the entourage effect and are therefore not recommended.
How do I choose a product that is right for me?
The ideal method for taking CBD depends on the reason for which it’s being taken as well as other factors such as age and weight. If using CBD oil as a supplement for health maintenance, tinctures or capsules are recommended. If treating a particular medical condition, consult with a qualified medical professional for advice on the ideal method of administration for your condition.
The Effects of CBD
How does CBD work?
There are some scientific experiments that indicate that cannabinoids work in a similar way to the endocannabinoids that the human body already produces in healthy people. CBD can act as a neurotransmitter. Neurotransmitters help to regulate bodily systems at a cellular level. CBD has been shown to have effects on a wide array of systems in the human body, such as the immune system, the nervous system, the endocrine system, the cardiovascular system, the digestive system, the heart, liver, and kidneys, the epidermis and others. CBD is also known to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
What does CBD do to you?
Can cannabis cause allergic reactions?
If you choose a product that is GMP certified you minimize the risk of contamination with allergens. Mylaso offers the finest quality cannabis extracts on the market as it is GMP certified. This means that our products contain no hazardous chemicals that can cause an allergic reaction.
In rare cases, individuals may be allergic to certain natural compounds. For example, terpenes are molecules that are in many foods and cosmetics and are known to trigger allergic reactions in a very small percentage of people. However, if you suffer from this rare allergy, it is extremely likely that you will already be aware of it.
In addition, poor indoor growing conditions and the use of pesticides, or the incorrect harvesting and curing of the herbal cannabis can cause it to become moldy, with toxins created by the mold fungi causing potential allergic reactions. The spraying of the plant material with chemicals including dangerous artificial cannabinoids or with chemicals designed to increase mass, can cause unpleasant allergic reactions or toxicities.
Will CBD get me high?
No, CBD does not get you high. It is 100% non-psychoactive. THC is the compound that gets you high.
Mylaso CBD oil contains high levels of CBD: a natural compound found in the hemp plant – a part of the cannabis family. Although THC can be present in CBD, it’s at such a low percentage that it’s not enough to get you high (0.3%).
When cannabis contains high levels of THC, it has psychoactive effects that will make you high – and is commonly referred to as marijuana.
What are the benefits of taking Mylaso Full Spectrum CBD products?
Full spectrum CBD users report a wide range of benefits, including improved mood, reduced anxiety and stress, reduced pain and many others. These benefits are usually greater than the benefits provided by non-full spectrum products, such as those containing CBD isolate. All Mylaso products contain full spectrum CBD oil. However, organic compounds such as CBD can produce different effects in different people. Your results may vary.
How long does CBD stay in your system?
It’s believed that CBD stays in your system for approximately two to five days. However, everyone is different and so the amount of time it takes for the molecule to leave your body completely depends on your body. It also depends, of course, on how much CBD oil has been taken.
What are the side effects of CBD hemp oil?
- Dry mouth
- A small drop in blood pressure
- Increased appetite
What does CBD do exactly?
In short, CBD helps to support our body in maintaining homeostasis. It does this by interacting with our endocannabinoid system – a hugely important system in all human and animal bodies that is involved in helping to control functions such as your mood, appetite, sleep and immune response by helping to bring about balance in our bodies. Check out our guide on the effects of CBD.
Can I use CBD with my medication?
It’s important to remember that while CBD is safe for you to use, it can potentially interfere with other medications. This is because of how CBD is metabolized by your body and the possibility that it can alter how your body normally metabolizes your other medication.
If your medication isn’t metabolized properly, the medication might not work. Instead, it may stay in your system longer than desired, or in a form that your body doesn’t like, leading to negative side effects and potential complications. For example, taking CBD with blood thinners can maybe result in them not breaking down in your system. However, there’s a chance that CBD can make your medication more effective – so much so that you might even be able to reduce your regular medication dosage.
The trick is to ask your doctor or medical professional if you can take grapefruit with your medication. Grapefruits can also mess with the metabolism of a variety of medications, so if your doctor says no to grapefruit then you’ll have to be careful about mixing CBD with your medication. Of course, we always recommend discussing CBD with your doctor anyway – especially if you’re already taking medication.
What is the difference between cannabis, marijuana and hemp?
All are actually cannabis plants. However, hemp or industrial hemp is a term commonly used for cannabis strains that contain very low levels of THC – to be precise below 0.3% THC. Marijuana, in general, is a word used for plants that contain high amounts of THC.
Our grandfathers did not know anything about THC (that it is psychoactive) and were just growing cannabis and calling it hemp. It’s only in modern times that the definition of hemp means low levels of THC.
On street level, when a cannabis plant is analyzed it’s found to contain 1%-22% THC. Cannabis products can even contain up to 98% THC.
CBD oil vs hemp oil: what’s the difference?
- Hemp oil is technically any oil that is derived from the hemp plant
- CBD oil is an oil that contains the compound CBD (cannabidiol). The compound itself is extracted from the cannabis or hemp plant and used to create an oil.
What's the difference between CBD vs THC?
- CBD is not psychotropic and therefore will not make you high, whereas THC is – and will create that euphoric effect.
- THC interacts with our CB1 receptor, whereas CBD’s mechanism of action focuses on our CB2 receptor.
- THC has a high-binding affinity for our CB1 receptor, meaning it fits perfectly into this receptor site. CBD has a low binding affinity for our CB2 receptors, preferring to regulate the release of our naturally produced endocannabinoids like Anandamide, which have high binding affinity for our CB2 receptors.
- CBD is abundant in hemp, while THC dominates in other types of cannabis.
- Hemp-derived CBD products are legal in most countries, whereas THC is not.
