CBD comes to the Club

You’ve probably heard about CBD oil

Now you can find CBD-infused products in the WAC Wellness Center, Spa at the WAC, and Club Shop. Here’s a quick look at some of the most frequently asked questions about CBD.

Q. What does CBD stand for?

A. Cannabidiol. It’s most often derived from hemp (a close cousin of marijuana), non-psychotoxic, and often credited with reducing stress, decreasing inflammation, and improving sleep.

Q. Can CBD get me high?

A. A 2017 report by the World Health Organization notes that CBD alone is non-psychoactive. That said, trace amounts of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol)—the psychoactive component of marijuana—can be found in many CBD products. Though getting “high” from these products is unlikely, anyone required to pass a drug test should avoid all marijuana-derived products.

Q. What are the benefits of CBD oil?

A. The Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 prohibits specifically stating what conditions CBD may help. WAC members are encouraged to research CBD and consult their doctor. You should always speak with your doctor before starting any new nutritional or dietary supplement.

Q. What CBD products are available at the WAC?

A. The Club carries Charlotte’s Web whole hemp extract products intended for topical applications, such as massage oils, balms, and lotions. The WAC has partnered with the Center of Healing, a wholesale distributor of Charlotte’s Web products. WAC research shows that the Center of Healing is one of the most trusted hemp brand organizations in the United States.
