My family learned about the significant benefits of CBD oil in 2016 when my wife had comprehensive shoulder reconstruction surgery in February followed in June with me being diagnosed with cancer at the base of the tongue. Yeah, 2016 was just not a fun year for my family!
My Wife's Story: The shoulder surgery left my wife with significant pain and arthritis but she was very reluctant to continue on the prescribed opioid drugs. After going thru significant physical therapy, the pain and range of motion was still limited. The orthopedic surgeon explained that due to the significant damage to the shoulder the best thing would be to replace the shoulder. My wife was having nothing to do with that. She was also told that the arthritis pain in her knee would continue to progress if she didnt plan to have her knee replaced. She decided she didnt want to become a bionic woman mostly because she didnt think she would look good in the tight outfit (hehehe) so she began her long hours research to find a more natural, God-provided remedy. A friend recommended cbd oil to potentially fix her arthritic problem as well as my recently diagnosed cancer. After many more hours of research and interviewing folks using CBD Oil she opted to give it a try. She didnt want to live on opioids for the rest of her life. Within a couple weeks she was noticing a major change. She didnt have to take as many Motrin 800 tabs and she was moving much better. Her sleep was uninterrupted by the nagging pain she had been experiencing for so long. After a month she no longer had to use the motrin 800 tabs. So she started researching and trying the many CBD products out there to find which one is the most effective for both of us. That's how we discovered Elixinol CBD products!
My Personal Story: The Lord works in mysterious ways. While my wife was recovering from her surgery, I got the nasty news that no one wants to get. The doctor found a tumor at the base of my tongue. I was diagnosed as Stage Three because the tumor had metatisized to my lymph node. I had this very noticeable lump sticking out of my neck! We were told 22 rounds of Radiation and 3 intensive Chemotherapy sessions was the recommended avenue to take. While awaiting for the treatments to begin (4 VERY LONG weeks - probably due to making sure all the insurance approvals were in!) my wife insisted that I start taking cbd oil because "well it cant hurt, right?" . Before the first treatment of Chemo and Radiation, the doctors examined me again and were surprised to note (and yes, they checked their records) that the lump in my neck had been reduced significantly. The first round of chemo was bad with the nausea etc caused by what the chemical poisons were doing to my body. I was losing weight because I couldnt keep anything down. Not even water. The second round of chemo just about did me in. I went from 170 lbs to 130 lbs. My wife was getting concerned because I was not eating or drinking so she scheduled an appointment with a surgeon to put a feeding tube in my stomach. I was just too weak to argue with her. So, some nourishment was getting in but my weight was still dropping...down to 125.... down to 118. My wife was monitoring me around the clock and researching everything and anything and decided that Chemo was doing more harm than good so we told the oncologist NO MORE CHEMO!!! My wife increased my cbd oil intake, used her essential oils concoctions, made all types of smoothies that were loaded with ummmm I dont even wanna know, but I was able to DRINK them while still using the feeding tube to take my prescribed formula. My wife told me that I needed to force down anything she was giving me. Yes, I trust the woman with my life, so I took the vitamins, cbd oil, smoothies, formula, etc. Also, as an added threat, she told me if I didnt recover then she was going to sell off my hot wheel collection (almost 10,000 cars) and all my weapons for $1 to my best friend. I believed her! lol. So following this new regime of a more natural solution, increasing the cbd oil, my weight started to climb back up... 120, 123, 130. My energy was returning. I was drinking the formula and had the feeding tube removed. I was feeling more like myself. As of today, I am currently cancer-free! I am at 155 lbs and gaining -ok some of it is due to the fact that I can eat real food again and drink my beer and whiskey again! As I said, the Lord works in mysterious ways. I went from death's door to a clean bill of health which is pretty wild since before the cancer diagnosis I had diabetes and high blood pressure. I am no longer on metaformin or blood pressure meds. I cant say how that is, but I am sure that God just wasnt ready for me to leave this world or my wife (and my four kids, ok, my hot wheels, weapons, horses and 9 dogs). I honestly dont know what turned everything around. I do believe that the change to the more natural, God-provided products was a significant factor as well as the fact that my wife wouldn't let me quit. I personally believe that cbd oil's properties did have a significant impact on my recovery and I will continue to take my daily Elixinol CBD products (I prefer the capsule form) to ensure my continued good health!
These are our personal stories. We don't and can't guarantee that what worked for us will work for everyone. God has blessed us both so very much! My wife continues her Elixinol cbd oil therapy and has been able to increase more time in her craft room! I continue with my Elixinol cbd oil and products and have regained, no make that surpassed!!! my previous energy level! All I can say is if you are going thru any ailments whether they are cancer, arthritis, seizures, diabetes, inflammation of any kind, etc. give it a try.
Don't take my word for it, read on! Studies have shown that using hemp oil is successful in treating inflammation - Here’s even more proof that hemp oil for inflammation and cannabinoids can help in reducing inflammation: A study published in the Free radical biology & medicine journal by US researcher G.W. Booz from the University of Mississippi Medical Center showed that cannabidiol can be helpful in lessening the impact of inflammation on oxidative stress, decreasing the risk of organ damage and dysfunction. Oxidative stress and inflammation contribute to a number of diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes type 1 and 2, atherosclerosis, hypertension, metabolic syndrome, Alzheimer’s disease and depression.
Scientists from the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda (US) showed that cannabinoids can suppress inflammatory and neuropathic pain without causing analgesic tolerance.
Cannabinoids suppress inflammatory response and attenuate disease symptoms by inducing apoptosis in activated immune cells, suppressing cytokines and chemokines at inflammatory sites and upregulating FoxP3+ regulatory T cells.

God Bless you and enjoy a long painfree, disease-free life!
