Elixinol is a CBD oil brand started in Colorado by hemp enthusiast and advocate Paul Benheim. It all began in 1991 which makes them one of the oldest CBD companies around.
The company was formed after extensive research on longevity and how the use of natural products can make people’s lives longer and more fulfilling.
The main goal was to manufacture and supply high grade CBD across the world. With a South African launch in 2016, Elixinol is well on its way in achieving its plans on expansion.
In terms of quality, Elixinol only produces 100% organic products with high quality, full spectrum CBD in every product.
All products are fully legal and adhere to the set out regulatory framework in South Africa, using CO2 extraction for high purity, full spectrum extracts.
You will notice that they have a variety of products that you can choose from. To make things a bit easier, here is a low down on Elixinol products.
Elixinol’s Hemp CBD oil is derived from specially bred hemp plants that are grown organically and extracted purely through CO2 extraction.
Elixinol only uses full spectrum hemp oil in order to offer you the best quality. The reason why Elixinol extracts CBD from hemp plants is because there are cannabinoids in hemp oil extract that are crucial components that influence the effects of CBD.
You are able to buy an oil tincture that has either 100mg or 300mg of CBD hemp oil in a 30ml bottle.
Elixinol suggest half a drop under the tongue three times a day. You can choose a cinnamint flavour for your oil, or if you prefer there to be no flavour then you can opt for the natural flavour.
Elixinol’s CBD Liposome is probably one of their biggest differentiation from other CBD brands.
Liposomes are used in some pharmaceuticals to help your body digest medicine faster, so in this case, the liposomes help your body absorb the CBD faster.
Of course, full spectrum hemp oil has been used to offer you the best quality. Elixinol has also done really well in their packaging overall, but we especially like this pump bottle as it makes it easier to spray the oil directly under your tongue.
Alternatively, if you really dislike the taste, then you can also dilute the CBD liposome with water or a cool drink.
Elixinol’s capsules promise the same quality and extraction process of their oils. Only natural ingredients are found in these capsules that also contain a full spectrum hemp extract that ensures that you benefit from as many cannabinoids as you can. Capsules are also a great option if you suffer from inflammation of the digestive system.
The CBD hemp oil in the capsules is absorbed quickly by your body, and although capsules are more potent than the oil, capsules offer you the benefit of knowing exactly how much you are taking and consuming that exact amount consistently.
Each capsule contains 5mg of super concentrated, full spectrum microencapsulated CBD and a further 176mg of hemp extract.
CBD Hemp Balm
Elixinol’s CBD Hemp Balm is an all natural topical skin balm that soothes and rejuvenates your skin. Filled with ingredients such as phytocannabinoid- rich hemp oil, ucuuba butter, andiroba oil and eucalyptus, this cream promotes optimal skin health and slows down the aging process of your skin.
Elixinol’s Cbd topical hemp balm immediately soothes dry, itchy skin that is constantly irritated by hand washing or sanitizing, so it’s great to have this balm close by at all times. We really like that this balm is non-greasy and entirely free of synthetic chemicals.
Elixinol is definitely one of the best CBD oil brands available in South Africa, with their wide selection of CBD solutions for different ailments.
To give you peace of mind, Elixinol provides batch numbers for each product, providing you with full transparency and traceability of what is inside the product that you are buying.
