CBD is incredibly popular these days, but not all products are created equal — and neither are the companies that sell this hemp-derived product. Elixir Group is different, and the cannabidiol products they create are, too.
These products are not intended to prevent, treat, diagnose or cure any condition or disease and have not been tested or approved by the FDA.
3. They only use safe, natural extraction methods.

CBD also seems to be helping patients deal with anxiety and therefore might be useful in treating the anxiety in those patients undergoing treatment for substance abuse.
One of the more promising developments is in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, where CBD seems to prevent the development of social recognition deficits in patients with the disease. This could mean that CDB might be helpful in these patients from losing the ability to recognize people who are familiar.
CBD also binds to or influences the cannabidiol 2 receptor, which is located all over the body and deals with the immune and nervous system.
This system, although poorly understood, is believed to help coordinate the body’s nervous system and help to make it work better when it is malfunctioning, such as with chronic pain. Therefore CBD oil can be seen as a nervous system-specific nutritional supplement.
It is believed this method provides the full spectrum of cannobidiols for consumption unlike the CO2 method, in which the various cannobidiols are specifically extracted and separated for the specific CBD wanted. The full spectrum method is believed by some to be better since all the CBDs are extracted together and used together.
CBD is often taken in many forms. These include as an oil extract that can be mixed with food and drink, a tablet or pill form, droplets, as an oil that can be rubbed into the skin or even as a spray. The exact dosing of CBD oil for its many uses in not completely determined.
None of the small-scale studies done to date have found any adverse effects in adults or children who have taken CBD. Some studies have even found CBD to help patients with chronic pain since it seems to block the chronic inflammation seen in this condition.
Unlike marijuana, or THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD does not have any psychoactive properties and therefore does not produce the high that is seen with THC. In fact, CBD binds to and blocks the cannabidiol 1 receptor located in the brain that THC binds to, thereby preventing THC from producing a high.
Since CBD oil is not regulated by the FDA, the current recommended doses are just guidelines from practitioners and from patients who have used it extensively. For example, for chronic pain, the recommended dosage is 2.5 to 25mg by mouth for 25 days.
