Elixinol CBD Reviews: The products

Elixinol has a really fantastic range of products, including oils, capsules, gummies, and topicals, many of which contain extra ingredients to help enhance the effectiveness of CBD when used for specific symptom relief.

For example, by harnessing the power of a variety of therapeutic botanicals such as ashwagandha, turmeric, boswellia, and beta-caryophyllene, Elixinol is able to manufacture products that offer healing powers above and beyond that of the CBD alone.

Update (September 22): New product alert!

Earlier today Elixinol announced a brand new product launch… EXTRA STRENGTH GUMMIES! These strawberry flavored gummies contain 25mg of CBD in each gummy, offering an even tastier way of getting your daily dose of wellness. I’ve already put in my order so will be reviewing them soon (watch this space)!

Elixinol CBD oil review

Elixinol CBD oil review

Excellent option

I knew from my research that Elixinol’s CBD oils contain a full spectrum hemp extract. So I was very surprised when I opened up the bottle and tried it, as I found the oil to be much lighter in color than I was expecting. So much so, I had to double check I’d gotten my facts straight!

I was right (of course!) and after a bit of digging I found out the reason that Elixinol hemp oil is a lighter golden color than any other full spectrum oil products out there is due to the extensive filtration the extract undergoes in order to remove unwanted plant materials, while retaining all of the beneficial cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids.

So, if you don’t like the hempy taste of full-spectrum oils, then the filtration process that Elixinol’s CBD oil goes through is a huge  deal as it means that the resulting oil will have a much milder taste, making it undetectable in your morning coffee or smoothie.

I personally couldn’t tell you for sure because the CBD oil I tried was flavored with cinnamint.

I’d heard about this cinnamint flavor from reading other Elixinol CBD oil reviews and in all honesty I can’t say that the flavor sounded particularly appealing to me (definitely not one I would have picked given the choice of other flavors) but in actual fact it was delicious!

I took it under my tongue after brushing my teeth in the mornings and the flavors mingled delightfully well, which is handy as I always forget to take my CBD before I brush my teeth (always a problem when I’m testing gummies!).

Depending on your needs, Elixinol produces several different incarnations of their CBD oil, including a Daily Balance blend (with added beta-caryophyllene), Everyday Rapid Reset and Sleep Rapid Rest (which contain liposome technology for better absorption), Everyday THC-Free (pretty self-explanatory), and an extra strength version of the Daily Balance formula. I tried the Daily Balance formula.

Elixinol Daily Balance review

Elixinol CBD everyday daily caps
Total Score iIndependent testing by the CBD Incubator team
Excellent option

Elixinol’s Daily Balance formula is available in both CBD oil and capsule format. As I mentioned above, the oil can be natural or cinnamint flavored, but both the oil and capsules are available in two different strengths.

Elixinol’s standard strength CBD oil contains 16mg of CBD per serving or the extra strength offers 33mg per serving. The capsules standard strength is 15mg serving of CBD and their extra strength formula jumps up to a massive 45mg per serving. If this is too much for you, then you can just take two capsules of their standard strength.

I take CBD every morning, often with a few days break in between each product, for my overall health and wellness, as opposed to needing to combat any regular symptoms.

Daily Balance does just what it says it will, it sets you up for a well-balanced day. During my trial I felt great, had lots of energy, and also noticed an improvement in my mood. I felt more positive and motivated and, because of that, enjoyed a particularly productive month, in terms of work, exercise, and socially.

This is a really great product but I can’t help but think it’s slightly wasted on me. Due to the added beta-caryophyllene, Elixinol Daily Balance will be particularly beneficial for people dealing with occasional stress, body discomfort or inflammation after exercise as both CBD and beta-caryophyllene are well-known for helping these issues.

Elixinol Calm Capsules

Elixinol CBD Review

Great option

I usually prefer to take CBD oil (sublingually) when I have bouts of stress due to it being faster-acting, but I ended up finding these capsules really handy for times when I knew I was walking into an anxiety-inducing situation.

Big meetings, air travel, and those social gatherings that you feel like you have to attend (and hardly know anyone) get me going every time. For all those times and more, these capsules helped keep me calm throughout.

I found that they helped me order my thoughts, stay focused, and kept any anxiety and stress that may have crept in, totally at bay. I wondered whether 15mg of CBD would be enough to make a difference, but I found that it was, although I was taking them on top of my usual daily serving size of CBD. If I had forgotten to take my CBD that morning, I’d probably take two.

Having said that though, it would be great if Elixinol could work out how to deliver this formula in an oil too, as I would love to be able to take advantage of more immediate relief.

Elixinol Active Sports Gel review

Elixinol CBD Sports Gel

#1 — Best in class!

Of all the products I tried, I have to say that it was the Elixinol sports gel that impressed me the most. It’s just amazing.

I was using it almost daily after working out, rubbing it into my sore muscles. Being a gel instead of a cream, it goes on really light, is very easy to rub in, and melts into your skin quickly. It smells quite strong, but it’s a nice smell of botanicals which I like, so that’s fine.

The gel was great, so I was already impressed with this product, but then one of my close friends injured her knee while dancing, so I reluctantly handed it over (just joking, she’s totally worth it).

She had been using another hemp cream that I’d given her, but Elixinols Hemp Balm was stronger and had the added benefit of arnica and capsaicin, two other powerful anti-inflammatories to compliment the analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties of the CBD.

She was bowled over by it and immediately wanted to order some of her own. I think it’s safe to say that I won’t be getting my Active Sports Gel back…

Elixinol CBD Balm review

Still waiting for reviewer feedback

When I’m testing products for a review like this, I either try the products for myself or I give them to someone who can benefit from them more than me, whether that’s a friend, or a friend of a friend.

I’ve been pretty lucky, so far, in receiving feedback from the testers, but every now and then one will get away from me. I have yet to hear back from my friend of a friend who got away with the (highly sought after) Elixinol Hemp Balm. But if the Active Sports Gel is anything to go by, then the resulting Elixinol Hemp Balm review would surely have been a glowing one.

Elixinol brand review

Aside from trying out the actual products, I also conduct extensive research into each brand I review. I’m secretly hoping to dig up some dirt that would make this Elixinol review go viral, but no such luck. Although I did uncover a couple of things that I could finally put on my “cons” list, this brand is completely above board, transparent in their business practices, and squeaky clean.

Elixinol CBD product reviews

Well-established brand

Elixinol is one of the pioneering CBD brands and after nearly 30 years in the industry, it’s safe to say they aren’t going anywhere. Their tagline “we have CBD down to a science” is a clever and poignant one as their formulas have been tried and tested over 25 years.

Elixinol CBD is also certified with the US Hemp Authority, which shows that they are helping to lead the industry forward with high standards and best practices.

Premium quality ingredients

Elixinol global is headquartered in Australia. Elixinol has proven to have complete control over the entire production process of their products. All of their US products are manufactured using organic hemp cultivated in the US and extracted via supercritical CO2 extraction methods (the cleanest in the business).

Looking past the hemp extract, Elixinol are also always on the lookout for ways to make their products better, innovating the industry. For example, they recently introduced an ingredient called Ginfort into their products for immunity and gut health. Ginfort is the next generation of ginger supplements, providing 13 times more active compounds than other, traditional ginger supplements. Elixinol is, unsurprisingly, the only brand to offer CBD products combined with Ginfort.

Third-party lab tested

Elixinol can and does produce third party lab results for every single product they manufacture and they make these results available on their website where you can find them easily. You can link to the results from the product pages or if you have an older batch, then they also have a library of their certificates of analyses linked at the bottom of the homepage.

The COA’s verify each product’s potency and purity, so you can be sure that it is free from contaminants such as pesticides, heavy metals, microbials, mycotoxins, and residual solvents.

Great website

Browsing Elixinol’s website is like a breath of fresh air as you just click into the product page and there you have everything you need to know before making a buying decision! I love that they make it so easy and will perpetually wonder why other companies don’t follow suit.

For example, head over to the sleep gummies page and you’re presented with an expandable list that offers information on product details, ingredients, FAQ’s, certificate of analysis, and information about shipping and returns.

The FAQ’s answer all of the questions I imagine I might have about that particular product including about the benefits, the other ingredients (in this case CBN), what this product does, and whether you can take it with other products.

You wouldn’t believe how long it takes, on some CBD websites, for me to find the most basic product information to share with you and in some cases it’s just not supplied at all! I find this kind of thing worrying as to me it can only mean one of two things, either the company didn’t think to supply the information (why on earth not?) or they’re trying to conceal it.

It’s not just the product pages that are designed well either, it’s the entire website. Shop by product type or by benefits, learn about CBD, contact Elixinol, it’s all right there on the homepage.

So, big shout out to Elixinol for saving me what could have been hours of research on this project. And for making your shopping experience as simple and straightforward as can be. If you’re not sure where to start, then I recommend taking their product finder quiz or contacting customer service to get in touch with their partners Leaf411.

Partners with Leaf411

And speaking of Leaf411, in January last year Elixinol announced its partnership with this non-profit group based out of Colorado. Leaf411 is a hotline that allows customers to speak to cannabis-trained nurses about hemp and legal cannabis. It’s an excellent resource that offers unbiased information to anyone that has legitimate questions about the potential benefits of CBD.

Elixinol’s partnership with Leaf411 means that, as a customer of Elixinol, you will receive exclusive free access to this service. All you need to do is contact customer service first who will give you a special Elixinol code that is needed to access this service free of charge.

Money-back guarantee

Elixinol is also one of those rare brands that offers a no questions asked 30-day money-back guarantee. If, for any reason, you’re not happy with their products, then you can return them and get your money back (minus the shipping fee if applicable).

I always think this kind of guarantee shows that the company has complete faith in the quality and efficacy of their products. It also offers a great risk-free way to try CBD for the first time or just try this brand for the first time.

Elixinol products review: The final word

If you’re thinking about buying products from this brand, I would recommend that you stop thinking about it and just go for it. All of the products I tried were fantastic and the brand is known for providing consistent quality, making me confident that you’ll be happy with them too.

And considering the quality you’re getting with Elixinol products, their prices are extremely reasonable too. At full price I would say they fall into the mid-price bracket, but you can also save yourself a ton of money by setting up a subscription to all your favorite products, joining their loyalty program, and recommending all your friends.


Is Elixinol legitimate?

The CBD market is unregulated so it’s important to question a brand’s legitimacy before parting with your hard earned cash. Having tried their products and personally conducted a lot of research into Elixinol in the US, I can 100% vouch for their legitimacy as a clean and consistently effective CBD brand.

What is Elixinol used for?

Elixinol products are used for a variety of benefits that CBD is well-known for providing. Their product range includes lines to support mobility, stress, immunity, sleep, and everyday balance, and they also have CBD products for pets.

Is Elixinol full spectrum?

The majority of Elixinol’s products are full-spectrum, but they do also produce a couple of broad-spectrum options, including THC-free sleep gummies and THC-free CBD oil.

Is Elixinol global?

Elixinol is available outside of the US but, you do have to visit a different website, depending on what country you’re in. As far as we know, Elixinol is available in the UK, Europe, Mexico, Brazil, South Africa, Japan, and Australia.
