I have been given this product as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company.
Sometimes misfortune may be a catalyst to discovering new ways of healing. This is how Liberty Lotion began. Samson Garner was working in an industrial environment when he had an accident which left him with crippling pain and a decreased quality of life. He had such a severe injury that metal plates were put in his upper back and he was prescribed high doses of pharmaceutical painkillers. Finding these treatments largely ineffective with unpleasant side effects, Samson’s imagination and creative mind led him to find out what natural solutions existed to help his debilitating issues.
Samson was amazed to find that there were many natural options that could have a profoundly positive effect on his quality of life without harmful side effects. In his process of discovery, he came across CBD, or Cannabidiol, a substance found in a variety of plants and other sources, usually derived from hemp. He learned that scientific studies have indicated that CBD has a strongly potent effect on inflammation and appears to help the body regulate and regenerate by boosting and balancing the endocannabinoid system.
That’s when Liberty Lotion was born. Soon came Liberty Lixir and Liberty Lip Balm, and that was just the start.
I love that Liberty Lotion’s guiding principles are to use the best sources available and to support small businesses which help make our country great. They are rigorous about labeling transparency and quality. CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid commonly found in hemp. In anecdotal stories and scientific studies, it has been indicated that CBD may be a viable treatment for anxiety, chronic pain, stress, neuralgia, migraines, arthritis, and more, especially those conditions with a direct relationship to inflammation.
Evidence suggests that CBD is a potent anti-inflammatory, and, since inflammation is the cause of so many diseases, CBD has the potential to help so many.
I was sent the Liberty Lixer ULTRA 1,000mg 1oz Tincture to review. Liberty Lixir Ultra contains 1,000 mg in a 30 ml bottle dispensing 6.7 mg CBD per pump. You spray it under the tongue so it can be rapidly absorbed. Within 15 minutes, I began to feel a wave of relaxation that was very pleasant. As there is no THC in the Liberty Lixer, I was able to get work done, the only difference being that I was not in a lot of pain. As a fibromyalgia sufferer, I have daily chronic pain which can be annoying at its best and debilitating at its worst. It wears on you and it wears you out. I am always researching and writing, yet back, neck and shoulder pain (which often causes headaches as well) make what I love to do unpleasant.
After taking the Liberty Lixer spray, I definitely felt my shoulders were looser, my neck pain diminished and that unpleasant tension and stress was gone. I’m not saying that it was a miracle cure and all my pain disappeared; it just took it way down to where it really didn’t bother me, which is truly a blessing. I also noticed that when I took the Liberty Lixir at night I was able to sleep better and woke up without any ill effects.
I love that this company is all about quality and customer service. Check out their topical lotions and lip balms too!
