A reader emailed asking if Elixinol might be of a benefit to her elderly mother with arthritis. There’s evidence to suggest CBD can help ease the pain of arthritis. They were also interested in an appropriate dosage. Here was my response:
Elixinol and CBD Oil in general has proven effective in treating inflammation and arthritis so I’m sure it would be of benefit to your mother. It sounds like she is quite uncomfortable and it’s definitely worth a shot.
While I can’t give you a specific example for elderly use (I don’t know anyone personally) my advice would be to start with a low dosage and work your way up. If you purchase the tincture use no more than half a dropper, perhaps in the evening to aid sleep. See how she goes and if you need more you can increase it. There is very little chance of negative side effects. If you have any doubts I’d recommend consulting your doctor.
Please note, I am not a doctor and my opinion is not medical advice. Just an opinion from someone who uses the product (I have to say this 😉 )
