To obtain the CBD-packed hemp extract from its organic crop, Highland Pharms uses a process called “supercritical CO2 extraction.” This method eliminates the need for more harmful solvents, while it also, the company says, yields CBD oil of an outstanding purity and efficacy. Those wanting to see for themselves can take their pick from Highland Pharms’ positively reviewed variety of tinctures – the strongest concentration of which measures up at 1,250 mg – as well as capsules and edibles. And if those potential customers have no idea exactly how much CBD they should be imbibing, then they can get themselves up to speed at the Texas-based company’s website, which offers a user-friendly guide to serving sizes and methods of CBD oil intake, among other common queries.
Much of the data we have about CBD is anecdotal, and its potential impact on drug testing is no exception. There are very few peer-reviewed studies on the subject, but there appears to be a small risk of a false positive for some users. Avoiding full-spectrum products containing traces of THC can reduce your risk of a false positive, but that may not eliminate the risk entirely.
But, CBD also has amazing potential when the product is created from the cannabis indica or sativa varieties with the proper extraction processes. A recent study from Israel showed that CBD in its natural form as a whole plant extract is superior over a single, synthetic CBD compound for treating illness. The plant has continually outperformed synthetic versions in research studies.
