Living With Chronic Pain: Liberty Lixir
I have been in a massive flare for about 6 months now. My regular regimen of medication and supplements, that normally works really well, haven’t been able to touch my pain and fatigue.
I have been hearing a lot of positive things about CBD oil and one of the companies that specialize in this oil caught my eye was Liberty Lotions.
My anxiety and panic have also been off the charts so I was really hoping I could find a CBD that would help with that too.
Liberty Lotion has a pretty decent product line that is geared towards anti-inflammatory agents.
Some examples are:
A little background on CBD oil:
(from Liberty Lotions’s Website)
CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid commonly found in hemp. It has been indicated by anecdotal evidence and numerous scientific studies that CBD may provide significant health benefits across a broad spectrum of potential applications.
It has been indicated that CBD may be a viable treatment for anxiety, chronic pain, stress, schizophrenia, dementia, neuralgia, Alzheimers, strokes, arthritis, migraines, Parkinsons, and essentially any and every ailment, especially those which have a direct relationship to inflammation, since the evidence suggests that CBD is first and foremost a potent anti-inflammatory. In addition to its anti-inflammatory properties, recent scientific research has indicated that CBD may have profound immunoregulatory and neuroprotective effects. It appears that CBD not only helps the body repair and recover from illnesses, but also boosts health in general and protects against disease. For more information on CBD, please view this article.
The product that I was given to try was the Liberty Lixir. Liberty Lixir is not a topical product but a tincture. You place it under your tongue for 60 seconds until swallowing. The average is 3-5 pumps (6.7mg CBD per pump) every 4-6 hours. On bad pain days I averaged, 4-5 pumps every 4 hours. Liberty
Liberty Lixir is made with an Isolate CBD that is refined an extraction process which removes all of the terpenes and trace cannabinoids associated with CBD. This results in a colorless crystalline extract. Since organic coconut oil is also colorless, when the two ingredients are mixed together, the result is a colorless, if highly potent, fluid CBD product.
Basically, I found is that you have to play with the dosage to find what is the best for you. My body processes medication quickly so my effects hit in about 5 minutes. Others it might take longer. My suggestion is to actually keep a piece of paper so you can see how long it takes to feel the effects. It will help you determine if you are dosing yourself correctly and frequently enough.
Using tinctures is not an exact science. Everyone’s body reacts to it differently and because it’s basically treating yourself with a natural product, it has a learning curve like most organic and/or natural products. You can choose from the 300mg or the 1000mg bottle. I choose the higher level because of my tolerance to all things. It’s high and trying things at low dose is pretty much a waste of time, as my doctors have found out.
I will say, it’s the first tincture that I have tried that actually stood up to it’s claims. I had absolutely no side effects, it worked pretty quickly and the taste was NOT AT ALL gag-inducing.
