There are many many articles online claiming pretty insane benefits for using CBD Oil. For example, this article in High Times provides evidence that this relatively new product can aid in the following:
- Quitting Cigarettes
- Clearing Acne
- Mad Cow Disease
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
- and a few more
Personally, I’m a little more gun shy about listing those benefits in this article. For one, they are written up about CBD Oil in general, and not any specific product. That can be a factor due to the potency and type of the oil generated. That’s the reason I’m going to keep it a little more anecdotal and stick to the benefits of Elixinol that I found to be true. I’ll also give you a few other benefits many other people claim but don’t necessarily apply to me.
The main reason I began taking CBD oil was to help with anxiety. This is such a loaded word in today society that I really should explain what I mean. While I dont consider anxiety to be a huge problem in my life (some people seem crippled by it) a sense of worry can sometimes cloud us all. Thinking about the future, what you need to do or what we might have done wrong during the day. These are all a part of the human condition and can plague our thoughts. It’s nice to get some release from that in a non-psychoactive way. Elixinol definitely helped me there. Perhaps it was part CBD and part placebo effect but it definitely worked.
I am also an avid exerciser. In any given day I could go for a 10km run, swim and 50km bike ride if I’m feeling energetic. This can result in quite sore muscles. Elixinol helps to relax and sleep better which definitely aids in the recovery portion of a good work out.
What Others Say
One of the biggest benefits and breakthrough of Elixinol and CBD oil is its claim to help epilepsy. This is particularly evident in young children. The evidence out there seems indisputable. I’ve seen footage of children’s fits and suffering stop within minutes of taking the oil.
This, to me, seems like a truly major breakthrough. While I don’t directly benefit from this positive side effect (I nor anyone I know suffers from epilepsy) the benefits cannot be ignored. If anything this should be one major reasons for legalizing hemp and CBD based products world wide.
With that I leave you to make your own decision whether or not CBD and Elixinol is right for you. I hope this article has helped you make an informed choice.
