About CBD Oil

Sometimes, simple is best. When it comes to CBD the most basic and effective form is oil. Highland Pharms oil products are imbued with premium hemp extract containing only pure CBD oil that has been extracted from the hemp plant with utmost care. Unlike other companies, they use the premium supercritical CO2 extraction method which requires precise and exact decarboxylation to extract raw cannabinoids from the cannabis sativa plant. This method ensures the hemp CBD oils are never heated past a temperature that could compromise the quality and purity of the product. (1)

All of Highland Pharms’ custom-made CBD oils and extracts contain a full spectrum of cannabinoids, including: CBCA, CBC, CBG, CBGA, CBDA, and CBN. These products only have a trace amount of THC in them, meaning they’re non-psychoactive and there’s no risk of experiencing any hallucinogenic effects. 

The hemp oil extract used in their products comes from a small Colorado hemp farm that only grows high-grade cannabis sativa.  

Choosing CBD

Full-spectrum oils contain lots of compounds found naturally in hemp plants. These include proteins, flavonoids, chlorophyll, and terpenes—each of which are thought to offer substantial health benefits. 

CBD oil is still in the early stages of regulation and medical research. As such, we understand how difficult it can be to find an authentic CBD product that contains everything it claims. Many brands intentionally mislabel their products, skip important stages in the manufacturing process, and forgo the use of organic ingredients in favor of cheaper ones.

When choosing the right CBD oil, there are three things we recommend considering: origin, extraction, and ingredients. We believe Highland Pharms ticks all of the boxes.

  1. American-grown: Highland Pharms uses hemp that is farmed right here in the U.S.
  2. CO2 extraction: All hemp is grown using organic growing methods and extracted via the CO2 method to ensure product purity.
  3. Contents: Not only are all products accurately labeled with their contents disclosed, but each is accompanied by a researched and referenced product page for your peace of mind. 

What is CBD oil used for?

Our customers use CBD Oil for many different reasons.  Some prefer to be proactive to prevent something from happening while others use it because it provides them with some level of relief of something they are battling.  While the FDA does not allow us to make any claims of what CBD oil can be used for or what it treats or what others use it for, there is much information available on the web.  We encourage you to do your research.  No matter what condition you’re considering CBD for, chances are you can easily find someone who has had some degree of positive results and is more than happy to discuss their experience with you.   We truly wish the veil would be lifted on all the wonderful results people have obtained using these naturally occurring hemp derived compounds.  But, for now, governmental agencies require us to stay quiet.

Before using CBD oil, it’s best to consult a healthcare professional. The scientific community is far from releasing any concrete findings, but the results thus far look promising. We here at Buena Vida Botanicals believe strongly in the products we sell and the testimonies provided by Highland Pharms’ existing customers.

CBD Oil FAQs

Is CBD oil effective for pain relief?

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not permit any sellers or producers of CBD to make health claims about the medical efficacy of its products. As such, our CBD oil products are intended to supplement and support your wellness, rather than cure a particular ailment.
Our customers use our products for many different reasons; many hope to experience the potential health benefits for which CBD is being scientifically studied, such as increased pain relief from inflammation.

Is CBD oil effective for relieving anxiety?

The products we offer are not designed to treat any particular condition or symptom. However, Highland Pharms products are often purchased by people in search of alternative ways to alleviate anxiety, and in the hopes of inducing an overall sense of peace and relaxation.

What benefits do CBD hemp oil drops bring?

All Highland Pharms CBD products are manufactured using the same CO2 oil extraction method, culminating in a full-spectrum CBD oil that contains both CBD and all other naturally occurring phytonutrients and cannabinoids found in hemp plant matter.
Since all of the products we offer contain the same main ingredients many of our regular customers find that all forms render similar results. Remember: every person’s body is different. Some consumers may notice differing results depending on the type of CBD they prefer to use.

How do I use a CBD oil tincture?

The CBD drop applicator attached to the lid of our CBD oil tincture products is designed to deliver the precise number of drops desired. We recommend either applying them directly under the tongue or adding drops to a spoon and then pouring it under your tongue. When the product is in your mouth, optimize the absorption rate by holding the drops under the tongue for 90 seconds before swallowing. CBD oil drops can be taken on a full or empty stomach.

Can I take these with my other prescriptions?

It’s best to speak with your regular physician before adding any new supplement to your medicinal regimen—particularly when you’re already taking medication. The FDA still classifies CBD as a food supplement but it may still interact with particular medications.

How do I know where the CBD comes from?

All Highland Pharms' CBD oil products utilize the same CBD extraction method from hemp plants grown in Colorado using organic growing methods.
However, not all CBD is equal. There are many other CBD brands on the U.S. market that source their CBD extract and isolate from plants grown internationally, with minimal oversight. Some companies even buy their CBD from brokers who don’t know anything about where or how it was grown. To ensure your safety, please exercise good judgement and conduct due-diligence before making a purchase.

Are Highland Pharms CBD drops made with CBD isolate or full-spectrum extract?

All Highland Pharms CBD drops are made with full-spectrum extract, meaning in addition to CBD, they contain all of the cannabinoids and phytonutrients found naturally in cannabis plant material for optimal effectiveness.

How is Highland Pharms CBD oil extract better than other brands?

The highly skilled farmers of Highland Pharms begin the CBD oil production process by planting premium cannabis sativa in the crisp air of Colorado.

It's then mixed with a premium carrier oil and used across the entire Highland product range. (8)
