ABOUT CBD EXTRACT
There can be a lot of confusion when it comes to CBD Extract. We carry the RAW form as it is the purest, most natural form there is. Raw means that no heat and/or chemicals (solvents or alcohols) have been used in the extraction or packaging process. This is hugely important.
When the extract is taken from the plant by use of CO2 extraction as ours is, the resulting gel or goo is just as nature intended it. In this natural state, the extract has around 100 cannabinoids and around 400 trace compounds – approximately 200 of which are terpenes. But, the second that any amount of heat (or chemicals) gets applied, the entire make-up of the extract changes. CBDA which is hugely available in Raw Extract, gets converted to CBD. CBDA has its own unique list of benefits that CBD does not. And, when CBDA and CBD work WITH each other, they each amplify the effect of the other. This dual effect is lost when heated. Heat can also damage or entirely eliminate almost all the other trace compounds naturally found within the plant’s extract.
While the resulting extract can have still have many beneficial compounds, much has been lost. This is why we recommend RAW CBD EXTRACT for our CBD Regimen (link to that page). And, the purists want only the pure Raw extract.
BENEFITS TO BOTH KINDS OF EXTRACT
It is important to note that other types of extract still have great benefit. In fact, when heated, the CBDA found only in the Raw form becomes additional CBD. So, an extract that has been heated, while having no CBDA, has approximately double the CBD…and still has many of the other cannabinoids. Also, it’s this type of extract that is used to make most of our products like CBD Drops, Gummies, Vape Oils, Capsules, etc.
We offer this product in either 1gram or 10gram syringes -or- in 5gram, 10gram or 30gram jars. Many people like the syringes for easy dispensing, but others prefer the scoopability of the jars. Either way, the product is the same.
CBD Extract FAQs
Will these work for (your condition)?
The FDA will not allow us to say that any of our products will relieve or heal any particular condition. However, we can tell you that we have many customers with many conditions (such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, migraines, PTSD, insomnia, anxiety, epilepsy, ADHD, IBS, autism, diabetes, psoriasis, and so much more) who have been using our CBD extracts regularly for years. Some people report that hemp CBD products help them with certain conditions and others report no relief. Many who report positive results say that it took them a while to find the right amount to take. The only way you’ll know if they help you with your situation is try them.
How do I know which strength to get?
There is no definitive answer for this as it seems to come down to each person’s own body. We have a page on our website dedicated to this subject (CLICK HERE). And, on this page you’ll find a link to an outside page that has a chart. We find it very important to read ALL the info on both pages for you to have the best results. In the end, most people find a little trial and error is required to find the “best” amount for any given individual.
Once you know how many milligrams of CBD you’ll want to take per serving, you can simply divide the total number of milligrams in any of the extract packages by the number of milligrams you want to take per serving to determine the total number of servings you’ll get per package. And, in all cases, the better value (cost per serving) will be achieved by using the packages that have the higher number of servings.
How often do I take them?
Very similarly to the Q/A above, everyone is different. We typically suggest in the beginning taking your CBD extract twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening, then adjusting after a few days to whatever schedule works for you.
Do these work better than the capsules (or drops, or vaping, or extract, etc)?
All of Highland Pharms CBD products utilize the same hemp extract, which is a full spectrum hemp extract that contains not only CBD, but ALL the cannabinoids and phytonutrients found naturally in the plants. Since all our products contain the same main ingredient, most people find that all the products support them equally well. However, as everyone’s body is unique, there are some people who notice differing results from the various products.
Is CBD extract legal where I live?
As all our products utilize extract from hemp (not marijuana) and thus have THC levels below 0.3%, all of Highland Pharms CBD extract is legal in all 50 United States and its territories, as well as many countries around the world.
Can I take this with my other prescriptions?
If you question this, we recommend you discuss this subject with your physician.
Does the CBD extract taste good?
Everyone’s sense of taste is different. Most people find the taste of hemp extract to be not very appealing, but some people come to like “naturalness” as an acquired taste. However, just about everyone realizes they’re not using CBD for flavor, they are using it for well-being. And, a few seconds of good or bad taste doesn’t matter to most. If you’re someone who taste is a big concern, perhaps CBD capsules, gummies or drops would be a better choice.
Is Highland Pharms CBD extract made with CBD Isolate or whole plant extract?
All our CBD extracts are pure whole plant extract (or full spectrum extract) meaning they contain not only CBD, but all the cannabinoids and phytonutrients found naturally in the plants for increased effectiveness.
