CBD just might improve your life

Using CBD to improve your daily life

      CBD use has exploded in the health and fitness world. Two years ago, most Texans didn't know the difference between CBD and pot. 

CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients of cannabis (marijuana). While CBD is an essential component of medical marijuana, it is derived directly from the hemp plant, which is a cousin of the marijuana plant. While CBD is a component of marijuana, it does not cause a “high.” 

CBD is available in lotions, candies, chocolates, capsules, baked goods, coffee, and whatever else a creative mind can think of.

CBD is now commonly used for pain relief, recovery, sleep, or stress. Athletes are big fans, and even pets are benefiting from the product. My dog, Babs, enjoys his time among his rabble-rousing boarding mates when I'm away. I know he's more relaxed when he's had a CBD treat under the circumstances.

According to a report from the World Health Organization, “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential…. To date, there is no evidence of public health-related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.”

Full-spectrum CBD products will typically contain small amounts of THC. For it to be legally sold across the U.S., CBD oils must contain less than 0.03%THC, which is well below the quantity necessary to produce any psychoactive response. Broad-spectrum CBD products and CBD isolates have no detectable THC at all.

Is it for you?

Studies show that CBD supports reduced inflammation, calms nervous reactions to stimuli, reduces anxiety, and prompt healthy brain function. There’s even a CBD-based drug approved by the FDA to treat epileptic seizures.

Anti-inflammatory properties

CBD capsules and whole-body treatments, like Elixinol’s Omega Turmeric CBD Capsules, are purposely designed to calm and support aggravated muscles. A product like Elixinol’s Daily Balance CBD tincture under the tongue is great for inflammation.

They also have a sports gel, which adds capsaicin and arnica in a gel form that you can massage into sore muscles to help you relax. 


In June of 2019, Texas passed laws creating a state industrial hemp program. Here's a link to find out more from the State of Texas,  cannabis, and the future of Marijuana in Texas.
