How our CBD Capsules are produced
Elixinol™ produces a whole-plant hemp-oil extract, derived from specially bred, organically grown industrial hemp plants with a high cannabidiol (CBD) content. Our hemp oil extract is non-synthetic and not an isolate, typical of chemically produced CBD oils. We apply a supercritical fluid extraction method which uses CO2 and no harmful chemicals in the process. It contains all the synergistic cannabinoids, terpenoids, essential oils and other compounds in the original plant. All the hemp we grow and use in your capsules is non-GMO industrial hemp which is grown in Europe and Canada. Our CBD oil capsules contain a full spectrum of terpenes, phytocannabinoids and other important compounds found in the original plant.
How do CBD capsules work in the body?
CBD is unique in that it (and often in combination with other cannabinoids) can positively interact with your endocannabinoid system (ECS). This neural network exists throughout your body and in every organ. The importance of the endocannabinoid system is clear when you consider it is responsible for the regulation of biological functions such as appetite, sleep, immune response, mood and pain. These are mechanisms which when faulty, contribute to a wide range of health problems. Cannabinoids act by attaching to receptors in the ECS and modifying their activity. This interaction can reduce symptoms caused by imbalance in the ECS such as inflammation, tremor, stress, lack of appetite and pain. CBD oil capsules will work differently depending on the person and should not be considered as a replacement for any prescribed medication, nor be taken with other medications without getting advice from a medical professional.
Before taking any CBD supplement, we advise you to speak to your medical advisor – particularly if you are taking other medications.
