You will be hard-pressed to find any CBD Oil Drops being sold at this price per milligram. And, if you do, chances are the quality is NOT the same. All Highland Pharms CBD products are infused with CBD Hemp Extract that isn’t “just CBD”. Our extract is a Full Spectrum of Cannabinoids extract. This means, in addition to cannabidiol, or CBD, it includes CBDA, CBC, CBCA, CBG, CBGA and only trace amounts of any THC, so you will NOT feel any ‘high’ or grogginess. With Highland Pharms, you get All the CBD Goodness – Without the THC High. All of the CBD Extract used in the Highland Pharms CBD products is extracted using the gentlest extraction method: SuperCritical CO2 Extraction. This method prevents the damaging heat that destroys the effectiveness of cannabidiol (CBD). It costs more to do it this way, but it delivers an Ultra Rich and Pure CBD Extract for our products.
We’re not able to make any health claims as to what CBD can do for you. One of our business partners takes this product, 10 drops in the morning and 10 drops in the evening for a pinched nerve which causes Chronic Back Pain. And, our other business partner takes these CBD Oil Drops for his metastatic colon cancer. It is generally taken by putting a few drops onto a spoon and putting that into the mouth. After 60-90 seconds under the tongue, the drops are then swallowed. However, you can take these by putting them into juices or smoothies or however you wish to take it. The natural flavor is rather “hempy”, which is why we’ve lightly flavored it with a natural mint flavoring. The “hempiness” is due to all the natural elements of the hemp plant still present in the extract. A common question we have been getting at here at PotGuide is about the shelf life of cannabis concentrates. All good things must eventually come to an end, but when it comes to concentrates, when exactly is that end? The idea of timeless shatter has become almost an urban legend that many seasoned smokers will recount with glee. Some long lost gram found in the back of a closet or bottom of a drawer resurfaces and smokes as good as the day it was purchased, some season, year, decade ago. In reality, the truth is that most well-stored concentrate will have a shelf life of approximately one year, but to really understand the complexities of long-term smokability, one must ask oneself, what exactly is “bad?” What is Nucleation? In terms of flavor profile and terpene retention, air exposure is the real enemy. All terpene-rich preparations will start to quickly degrade in open air. As one extractor told me, “If you can smell it, it’s evaporating.” Don’t go burning all of your live resin at once though; you’ve got a while to enjoy it. In general, full flavor and terpene profile will stay consistent for four to eight months in most concentrates – especially those extracted with hydrocarbons. Better storage methods can help concentrates to retain their freshness, and the preparation of a given concentrate will greatly affect the rate of terpene loss. Shatter and oils, especially those that have been winterized, tend to be more shelf stable. Winterization does not affect THC content, but the reduced amount of lipids means less terpene retention overall. Some consumers report a preference of winterized products for smoothness, so in the end it might come down to personal preference. Though winterization can help fend off changes in concentrate, over time, many will become more sugar-like in appearance regardless, a process known as nucleation. Simply put, nucleation is when homogenized particles within the hash (think contaminants, lipids and cannabinoids) begin to separate. Many factors can contribute to or hinder the nucleation process, such as time, temperature, contaminants and lipid content. THC and THCA are naturally prone to separation, and the process is induced in preparation of pure THCA crystals, which are then reintroduced to terpenes to make “sauce.” The terpenes in concentrates also want to congeal which further contributes to the sugaring process. Some smokers prefer their concentrates this way, and claim it adds to a more terpene-forward smoking experience, though others argue over the quality of concentrates in this state. Either way, concentrates are still good for vaporizing after nucleation occurs and will still contain high THC levels. Over time, concentrates will degrade just as flower does. THC will convert to CBN, usually imparting a more amber or rusty coloring to the concentrate.
While CBN can be uncomfortable in large doses, in smaller amounts has been found to be a potent sleep aid. For flower, one study found that cannabis loses about 17% of its potency if kept at room temperature for one year.
Anecdotal reports have stated a loss of as much as 50% THC content for hash preparations, but little research has been done in the field to substantiate this claim.
