FAQ

What is CBD?

The Hemp plant is full of benefits. From getting tons of fiber and protein by eating hemp hearts to juicing the leaves for a boost of chlorophyll and vitamins A, C and E….oh, and of course there is CBD!

CBD, or  “Cannabidiol”, is one of the most prominent phyto-cannabinoids found in the hemp plant, and recently we have gotten more research around the benefits of the specific cannabinoid, CBD and other non-intoxicating phyto-cannabinoids produced in Hemp. The research around CBD in particular, has shown that this specific cannabinoid can offer significant relief from the symptoms of a variety of ailments including inflammation, pain, stress, depression, anxiety, nicotine addiction, acne, psoriasis, Schizophrenia and much more. 

This research has also taught us that there is supposedly not a “lethal dose” of this cannabinoid or a supplement that includes it. It is important to note that some CBD products can be bad for you or make you sick due to aspects of cultivation. If the hemp farms use pesticides or that don’t handle their product with care, can transfer chemicals into CBD products because hemp is a bio-accumulator. This means that hemp pulls all of the nutrients from the soil around it, but it can also pull in metals and pollutants. If a CBD processor isn’t testing for those toxins that CBD product could ultimately make someone sick. That is why New Highs takes every measure to bring you a clean and effective product by third party testing on all of our product and source our hemp from Oregon which has strict soil testing for heavy metals and allows New Highs to provide a clean product.


What is a “Phyto-Cannabinoid”?

"Phyto-cannabinoids" are plant produced Cannabinoids that are mostly found in cannabis and hemp plants. Hemp produces other non-intoxicating cannabinoids like CBD, as well as CBN, THC-V, CBG, CBD-A, CBD-V and more. All of these cannabinoids have individualized benefits. For example, CBD can work as an inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-spasmodic and more.

But  when you pair that CBD with CBN, which can work as a sleep aid, pain reliever and antibiotic, you are multiplying the benefits.

CBG or “Cannabigerol” is another phyto-cannabinoid that is non-intoxicating and has a long list of potential uses and benefits.

Recent studies on CBG have shown that this cannabinoid can help slow or stop bacteria growth, works as an antifungal, and a neuroprotectant, which makes it very useful when treating gastrointestinal disorders when used orally or skin conditions when used topically.

Some researchers in Europe have even found that CBG can help greatly in the treatment of MRSA virus and gut bacteria because of these anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties.

CBG also interacts with both the CB1 and CB2 receptors (of the ECS), acting as a possible inhibitor to the intoxicating effects of THC. CBG is also thought to boost anandamide, an endocannabinoid that naturally increases dopamine levels and responsible for regulating various health functions such as mood, sleep, and appetite. GABA uptake in the brain may be obstructed by CBG, making this cannabinoid a possible anti-anxiety agent and muscle relaxant. CBG may also block serotonin receptors, showing potential antidepressant traits. And these are just a few of the over 110 phyto-cannabinoids and their benefits that we know of.


What is the Endocannabinoid System (ECS)?

The Endocannabinoid System also commonly referred to as the ECS is an endogenous system found within the body of every mammal. This system is a complex network of physiologic compounds and receptors labeled CB1 and CB2. The ECS is responsible for creating and maintaining a state of homeostasis throughout the body. This system is highly accountable for the regulation of things such as appetite, sleep, stress, pain perception, gastric motility and more. As we age, or get sick the Endocannabinoid System is much like any other Endogenous system and may need the help of supplements, in this instance those supplements consist of cannabinoids.

The body naturally produces cannabinoids known as endocannabinoids that activate cannabinoid receptors in the ECS. Phytocannabinoids such as THC and CBD that occur naturally in hemp also activate these receptors that are otherwise deficient.

The intake of phytocannabinoids is helping many individuals find relief from a wide range of different diseases, conditions, and ailments by supplementing and strengthening their ECS.

Researchers believe the reason why hemp is able to help so many with various issues is due to phytocannabinoid saturation of these receptors. Without the intake of cannabinoids, your body can systematically enter a state of endocannabinoid deficiency. This deficiency is believed to cause things such as IBS, migraines, fibromyalgia and more.


Where does New Highs oil come from?

New Highs CBD oil is made with CBD rich hemp that is grown in Oregon. All of the New Highs CBD oils are comprised of CO2 derived hemp extract and fractionated coconut oil, MCT (Medium-Chain Triglycerides). New Highs CBD oil is free of pesticides, herbicides, and residual solvents.

Many CBD products on the market today have unclear and inconsistent labeling due to the lack of regulation and the high volume of imported products from overseas. At this time there are only four states that have stringent regulations on labeling of CBD products including Alaska, Washington, Oregon, and Colorado. All products in these states must pass state-required lab tests for potency and purity.


Is the oil a full spectrum or isolate?

New Highs CBD oil is a full spectrum food grade CO2 extracted hemp oil, meaning that we feature the “Full Spectrum” of beneficial elements of the hemp plant. Our oil is multi-use, meaning it can be ingested, used topically, added to food and even used sensually. Unlike isolate, our CBD oil offers all cannabinoids found in hemp, not just CBD. These “supporting cannabinoids” have a lot of benefits of their own, for instance CBG helps with ocular tension and headaches which can be beneficial to anyone who gets a lot of screen time causing headaches or eye strain, and CBN can work as a relaxant helping you stay calm and relax a little when dealing with stress and anxiety.

By using Full Spectrum extract we are ensuring that New Highs has more benefits for you and your endocannabinoid system.


What other ingredients are in the oil?

New Highs full spectrum CBD oil contains no additives, sweeteners, preservatives, or artificial flavorings to make it safe and easy to use in a variety of ways, from skin to ingestion. The oil contains nothing more than CO2 derived hemp extract and fractionated coconut oil, MCT (Medium-Chain Triglycerides).

Cannabinoids such as CBD are fat soluble and more effective when consumed with fat. This is why we chose to mix our extract with coconut oil as it contains saturated fat helping the body to absorb the cannabinoids better. MCT oil is metabolized directly into energy, which allows your body to burn fat. This rapid fat burning also leads to a faster release of cannabinoids into the body in comparison to other carrier oils.


Is it 3rd party tested?

Yes! New Highs CBD oil which is derived from CBD rich hemp flowers is 3rd party lab tested for potency and purity by PIXIS Labs.

Test results for cannabinoid content and more can be reviewed for New Highs 2000mg and 700mg formula.


Can New Highs be used topically?

Absolutely. New Highs CBD oil is safe to eat, and uses only natural ingredients, making it safe to use on your largest organ, your skin. The oil base of this product is great for skin hydration, and the plant nutrients in it can help relieve symptoms of psoriasis and other skin conditions, and when CBD is used topically it causes your DNA to halt the production of  Arachidonic acid,which causes inflammation and pain. You can massage this oil tincture into areas where you are experiencing muscle and joint pain for relief of muscle tension, making it a perfect muscle rub.New Highs can also be rubbed on temples to help with headaches or on the jawline to help with jaw tension. With so many benefits, we definitely recommend using New Highs inside and out.


Can I take CBD with other medications?

While cannabinoids are widely believed to have no interaction with pharmaceuticals and other medications, it is always best to consult with your healthcare provider if you have any questions or concerns about the addition of CBD products or any supplements to your regimen.


Can I sell New Highs CBD Oil in my store or on my website?

No. By purchasing New Highs CBD products, you agree not to distribute or resell the products for any commercial purpose. The purchase of New Highs products is for personal use only. We reserve the right to reject and/or cancel your order if we feel that you may be purchasing the products for anything other than personal use.

Does New Highs contain THC?*

New Highs CBD oil is a “Full Spectrum Oil”, which means that we have extracted all of the plant matter and benefits into our oil because we believe in the power of all of the cannabinoids of the Hemp plant working together, encouraging the “Entourage Effect”. Because of this there are trace amounts of THC in our product, but these amounts are small enough that they are not intoxicating and fall well under 0.3% THC, the legal limit of THC that can be in a CBD product that is sold nationally. 

*Because of the trace amounts of THC in this product, drug tests may show false positive results.
