This overview will provide a summary of the most important aspects of Highland Pharms and its CBD products.
Since 2015, Highland Pharms has worked hard to make its mark on the CBD world. This company is determined to make safe, plant-based remedies to offer alternative natural solutions.
One of Highland Pharms’ biggest accomplishments came in 2020 with outstanding recognition from CBD Validator. This company created a proprietary and unbiased tool to independently rank CBD oils around the world. Based on their ranking criteria, Highland Pharms Full Spectrum CBD Oil Drops (15,000mg) was ranked 8th out of 1,776 CBD oil products. Pretty remarkable!
The company sources high-quality hemp grown in Colorado. These farms utilize sustainable and organic agricultural practices, to produce happy, healthy plants.
Then, Highland Pharms uses a heat-free method known as supercritical CO2 to extract CBD rich oil from the hemp plant, preserving its valuable phytonutrients. Yet, it’s disappointing that the company doesn’t test for contaminants or impurities.
Brand Product Line
Most of Highland Pharms products are full-spectrum to include all the benefits that the ‘whole plant’ may offer. With that said, it does have a few broad-spectrum and CBD isolates to cater to consumers looking for THC-free options.
The company’s extensive product line includes CBD oil drops, gummies, capsules, CBD for pets, topicals, and vape oils. It also sells more novelty items like bath bombs, waxes, concentrates, terpene drops, and superfoods.
What Are Customers Saying?
When reading customer reviews for products like the FX CBD Vape Oil (i.e. Chill & Think) and the FX Terpene drops, many people say it’s the best vape oil or terpene blend they’ve ever tried.
Also, several repeat customers who’ve purchased different Highland Pharms products say they’re consistently getting the same great quality they’ve come to expect and rely on.
It appears that the numbers don’t lie. Or in this case, it’s the sheer volume of 5-star reviews that paint a nice picture!
Highland Pharms: All About the Company
Highland Pharms launched its CBD business during 2015 from the Highland Lakes region of Texas. This is where part one of its name originated from. Co-founders, Eliot Harris, and Luke Johnston decided the second part of the name should be “Pharms”. It’s a mash-up of the words pharmacy and farms – because they believe in the power of plants and natural remedies.
One year after inception, Luke Johnston lost his life battling cancer. Luke “believed in the power of CBD and worked hard to let everyone he came in contact with know about its amazing properties.”
Today, the company honors Luke and his belief in the abilities of CBD by focusing on high-quality products at various strengths to appeal to a wide range of customers and their diverse needs.
How Does Highland Pharms Source its Hemp
Highland Pharms sources its industrial hemp from boutique farms in Colorado. These farms use organic and natural growing practices, including the use of non-GMO seeds.
Additionally, the company applies a supercritical CO2 method to extract CBD oil from its hemp plants. This technique is one of the best possible options because it doesn’t degrade the hemp’s cannabinoids or terpenes.
Finally, the company posts the cannabinoid profile of every product on its website. But, it doesn’t pay to test pesticides, heavy metals, or residual solvents. Also, we noted a few instances of expired lab reports. Hopefully, this is an area the company improves upon in the future.

Highland Pharms CBD Hemp Oil Drops come in five different strengths and three flavors. All drops contain a full-spectrum formula with MCT coconut oil as the carrier to make hemp digestible.
As mentioned earlier, Highland Pharms 15,000mg CBD oil tincture was rated 8th out of 1,500+ CBD oils in the world.
The company offers three varieties of full-spectrum CBD capsules. One option is made with vegan capsules. Another choice is a soft gel and finally, there’s a water-soluble capsule with the added boost of curcumin and black pepper extract.
Like the CBD Oil Drops, these capsules also come in a variety of CBD potencies.
The CBD gummies by Highland Pharms are one of its best-selling products. There are only two options however, a 10mg or 20mg potency. The flavor is the same on both — a mixed fruity taste. The price borders on the expensive side, but the full-spectrum blend and use of many organic ingredients make the price worth it to most consumers.
CBD Creams & Lotions
The Therapy Hemp Cream and Lotion are paraben-free and have some sensational ingredients. For example, there’s mango butter, chamomile and peppermint essential oils, aloe vera, apricot, olive, coconut, and olive oils.
Yet, the CBD potency is quite low. So, these products make good topicals because of their formulas but they don’t deliver on big (or even medium) doses of CBD.
CBD Vape Oils
Highland Pharms has a line of Vape Oils with average CBD potency and a line of high-potency vape oils under the brand FX CBD Vape Oil. Both brands are free of propylene glycol (PG) which can cause adverse reactions in some people.
And the FX Vape oils have plant terpenes added to increase the synergistic action of the formula. Essentially, the experience of using this vape oil is more full-bodied and more powerful. More bang for the buck, if you will.
Next, we have CBD extracts. These products are a highly potent and raw form of hemp. So, there’s a nearly equal amount of CBDa, the raw unheated molecule, as there is CBD. Extracts can be consumed under the tongue, like CBD oil.
It’s nice to see a few extracts offered by Highland Pharms because not a lot of company’s carry these.
Terpenes are molecules in plants that produce their aroma and flavor profile. They may even have certain therapeutic effects (think aromatherapy). Highland Pharms developed its terpene drops from various plants so consumers can add them to their vape juice, CBD oil, or CBD edibles.
Each terpene has a name like ‘Think’, ‘Chill’, ‘Concentrate’, and a few others to describe the type of effects you can expect.
CBD Waxes & Dabs
CBD waxes and dabs are called concentrates because they’re extremely potent and meant to use in a dab rig, bowl, or vaporizer. Highland Pharms offers wax crumble, wax dab, crystals (isolate), and shatter. These products are either whole-plant extracts, broad-spectrum, or isolates.
CBD for Pets
Highland Pharms carries PAWS Hemp Oil Drops and Pet Treats. The hemp oil drops are low potency, so they’re only advised for small pets under 20 pounds. For larger sized bets, consumers can buy the company’s regular Hemp Oil Drops or the Pet Treats that have 15mg of CBD per treat.
If money is a concern, you’re better off with the ‘human’ CBD Hemp Oil Drops because they’re more affordable than the pet branded oil.
Lastly, the company has a few non-CBD related products. The first is Moringa Capsules, and the second is Authentic Shilajit Resin. Moringa is a tree that has a plethora of health benefits. Research shows it’s full of minerals, vitamins, essential amino acids, and antioxidants.
Then there’s Shilajit Resin. It hails from the Himalayan mountains on the border of India and Nepal. This resin is a thick black paste and literally oozes from the cracks of these mountains. It’s highly regarded in Ayurvedic medicine for its ability to increase strength, endurance, immunity, and energy.
