WHAT IS CBD or CANNABIDIOL?
There are many CBD oil brands on the market, but none compare to AELEXI. We’ve worked long and hard to create a proprietary formula of CBD oil that is as effective as it is fast-acting. Using BIO-Micelle™ technology, our products boast an 85% absorption rate in the GI tract and 15 minute onset-of-action — numbers that no one else even comes close to. Before we get into the science behind BIO-Micelle Hemp CBD Oil, here’s a quick breakdown of the differences between marijuana and hemp, which both come from cannabis.
With more states legalizing marijuana for medicinal and recreational use, cannabis and CBD oil are gaining recognition for their uses in helping people who suffer from a multitude of health issues. While coverage and exposure are great, it can also allow for misconceptions, confusion and myths to perpetuate.
Hemp and marijuana are both derived from the cannabis sativa plant, but hemp comes from the male pant, which is high in CBD and low in THC, while marijuana comes from the female plant, which is just the opposite. Even though they both come from cannabis, CBD oil and marijuana are completely different products, and as long as they meet Federal regulations, products containing CBD oil can be sold in all 50 states.
So what’s so great about CBD? It may be the single most important cannabinoid ever discovered for its ability to manage the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is is responsible for effects throughout the entire body including sleep and relaxation, inflammatory responses and cognitive function.
Cannabinoids are phytocannabinoids which are natural chemical compounds secreted by the cannabis flower. Included in among over 66 classified cannabinoids identified in cannabis are the two main active, most recognized and studied compounds CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol). Unlike TCH, CBD is devoid of psychoactive effects and seems to have a natural protection against the high that comes from marijuana.
While all cannabinoids have been proven to provide various benefits, CBD has been shown to be a strong regulator of the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is a group of endogenous receptors located in the brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems. The ECS has been associated with the regulation of pain, Central Nervous System (CNS) affects and even sleep.
While research is ongoing for a number of uses, early results show that products using CBD, including full spectrum CBD hemp oil, may have a positive impact on a number of common health ailments in both the central and peripheral nervous systems. AELEXI uses a Full Spectrum Hemp CBD Oil which is not a distillate, isolate or chemical version, and in addition to CBD contains other natural cannabinoids that together create an entourage effect that helps activate the effects of CBD in the body.
To put it simply, CBD oil has the power to affect the health of thousands of individuals without any of the psychoactive or other side effects found in medical marijuana. It is also non-addictive. Which brings us to our next point.
The most commonly known forms of consuming cannabis-based products is smoking or vaping, but there are other, more preferable and healthier ways. Ingesting AELEXI Hemp Oil is as easy as filling the dropper and orally ingesting it, or mixing it with your favorite drink. From there our BIO-Micelle technology does the rest of the work, making the peak effect of the CBD oil quicker and the duration longer.
The human body is over 60% water. Water helps to regulate our temperature, flush toxins and waste, lubricate joints, and supply nutrients and vitamins via absorption to every cell, which is critical to our health and well-being. Absorption happens during the digestive process primarily in the intestines which are covered with a fine water film. Only water soluble substances that can permeate this film are directly absorbed or “bioavailable.” Fat soluble substances cannot permeate this water film and have to be pre-treated, a process that takes time and occurs indirectly in the intestine by the building of micelles by means of gall salts.
The micelles that we create using AELEXI BIO-Micelle technology are capable of mimicking the way the human body makes oil-based ingredients bioavailable. With an absorption rate of 85%, AELEXI PROPEL Hemp Oil has a significantly higher effective absorption rate than other leading brands of CBD oils.

One in ten Americans has experienced pain every day for the last three months, yet only 23% of those individuals have found opioids effective in treating their symptoms. The data is clear – prescription pain killers don’t work. Could an all natural alternative like CBD oil turn things around? Promising research using CBD oil is being done, and some experts think CBD oil could help solve America’s opioid epidemic.
Did you know that chronic pain is the number one cause of disability in the United States? From migraines and lower back pain to sore necks and slipped discs, a 2011 study found that over 100 million Americans suffer from persistent pain. These pain problems lead to more than $6 billion in lost productivity and medical treatments each year.
Since the 1920s, doctors have relied on prescription opioids like Vicodin, Percocet, and Fentanyl to treat patients suffering from chronic pain. These drugs are manufactured to address physical discomfort, but they are also highly addictive. A 2015 study by the American Society of Addiction Medicine found that 2 million Americans “had a substance use disorder involving prescription pain relievers.”
The same study noted, “drug overdose is the leading cause of accidental death in the US, with 52,404 lethal drug overdoses in 2015“. Sadly, in the two years since that study was published, the numbers have continued to rise. The White House has even declared an Opioid State of Emergency.
Opioids rewire the brain’s pain receptors causing mental and physical addiction, but CBD oil works differently. The hemp plant is the only known botanical that interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system the part of the human body tasked with homeostasis or general well-being.
Imagine the endocannabinoid system like you would the computer of your car. Your car’s computer keeps things running smoothly, but if something goes wrong it can negatively impact your steering, your mileage, or even the battery. If your car has a malfunctioning sensor, you can replace the sensor, but if the real problem is the computer’s hard drive, you’re only addressing the symptom and not the actual cause. Opioids only address the pain centers in your brain, while CBD oil traces the root of the problem, directly impacting your neurotransmitters.
Here’s an overview of some recent studies displaying the effectiveness of CBD oil in treating chronic pain:
▪ In 2008, a review found that CBD oil “was effective in overall pain management without adverse side effects.” The same review “also noted that CBD was beneficial in treating insomnia related to chronic pain.“
▪ In 2016, scientists performed tests on arthritic rats, concluding that “Transdermal CBD gel significantly reduced joint swelling, limb posture scores as a rating of spontaneous pain, immune cell infiltration and thickening of the synovial membrane in a dose-dependent manner.“
▪ Cancer patients are using CBD oil to treat the pain and symptoms of regimens like radiation and chemotherapy.
▪ The U.S. government notes that “CBD is very good at calming over-excited nerves and “study demonstrated that endogenous cannabinoid system signaling is likely to provide intrinsic protection against colonic inflammation and cannabinoids may also contribute to pain modulation through an anti-inflammatory mechanism.”
If you have been using prescription drugs to fight back against chronic pain, you may want to talk to your doctor to see if CBD might be a better alternative than opioids. It’s an all-natural product derived from the cannabis plant, it isn’t addictive, and side effects are minimal.
Hemp CBD may yet prove to be the best way to counter opioid addiction.
