Elixinol Liposomes 300mg Citrus Twist CBD Oil Review
We’ve been looking forward to reviewing some liposome products, and we found a good one to start with by trying Elixinol’s 300mg Citrus Twist CBD oil. The idea of a CBD product using a liposome delivery system is to enable faster absorption by the body. Combined with the other ingredients in Elixinol’s product, the phospholipids (liposomes) are a unique proposition in the CBD world. We found dosage guidance and helpful information on the bottle and a spray pump dispenser rather than a dropper (Yea!). We anticipated a good experience, and as you will read below, Elixinol did not disappoint.
Taste (8.5 out of 10)
For a CBD oil, this is pretty tasty stuff. You will still get a slight hint of vegetation, but the citrus flavoring does a good job balancing things out, without being overpowering. Elixinol’s website claims that the product contains 100% natural fruit and herb extracts, which is a bonus. While we put a huge emphasis on taste, it’s also great to know that a company is not pumping a product full of artificial flavors and colors to get there.
Delivery (9.0 out of 10)
Elixinol went with a spray pump dispenser instead of a dropper, and we commend them for that. The delivery is incredibly easy to determine CBD dosage (serving size) and does not cause the dripping you might get with a dropper. The spray volume seems consistent, so you can easily determine the dose you are getting. For example, the bottle tells you that one pump is .5 ml (60 pumps per bottle per 30 ml bottle). So, with a 300 mg bottle you are getting 5 mg per pump. Easy!
Potency (7.5 out of 10)
At 300 mg, this is a mildly potent CBD product. Of course, there are other potencies offered and we plan to try the entire range from Elixinol. We are making our way into higher potency CBD oils we will definitely be back with review of the stronger Elixinol oils. For this one, we ingested more than the recommended serving on the bottle in order to evaluate. While not overly potent, as anticipated, we felt the product lived up to its potency claims.
Effect (9.0 out of 10)
We were definitely curious if Elixinol’s claims around liposome delivery would pan out. As stated above, the whole idea of a liposome delivery system is an accelerated absorption into the body. This CBD oil definitely delivers on that promise. Although this is not a high concentration of CBD, the effects were fast and clearly noticeable. This is definitely a product to consider when you want quick relief. The ease of which you can administer a dose on-the-go makes it that much better.
Price (7.0 out of 10)
When you compare this offering to standard CBD oils, you correctly assume that the process for making a liposome product adds considerable expense. You’ll be taking a step up in the world with this CBD purchase. The price of this oil is approximately double the cost of Elixinol’s standard oil product on a price-per-mg basis. However, the benefits of fast acting, positive relief are real, and we think our readers will love it as a potential product for daily use.

Elixinol Hemp Oil + Coconut Extract 300 mg Review
Elixinol presents a good customer experience, with a nicely organized website filled with helpful information, an interesting blog, and a statement of the company’s ideals. As with most brands, they offer a variety of products in varying strengths, application methods, and intended purposes. CBDtop10 reviewed the 300 mg oil to begin with, but will definitely try other Elixinol products and post our reviews here. Our impression of the oil was positive, and we recommend it as a good all-around product to try.
Taste (8.0 out of 10)
We selected the natural flavored oil, although cinnamint and grape flavors are also offered. We found the taste to be mild and pleasant, at least in the way that CBD oil can be considered pleasant. There is the usual vegetation taste of hemp, but it is not overpowering.
Delivery (7.5 out of 10)
Elixinol’s oil was comparatively thin and easy to drop under the tongue. We have bemoaned the use of droppers throughout our reviews, and we have the same gripe here. However, we will definitely try the new X-pen oral applicator shown on their website and see if it provides a better delivery system for future reviews. Elixinol also offers hemp oil liposomes, which we will be certain to try as well. For our initial review, the dropper was adequate and the oil itself smooth and easy to swallow.
Potency (6.0 out of 10)
At 300 mg, this is a mildly potent CBD product. Of course, there are other potencies offered, and we intend to review those as we continue our evaluations going forward. It doesn’t pack the most powerful punch, but you can vary the amount you take to achieve your goal. We sampled more than the recommended serving on the bottle in order to attempt equivalence with our reviews of other products.
Effect (7.0 out of 10)
Since the potency is on the lower end, it’s not unexpected that the suggested serving size delivers a limited effect. (unless you do a multiple of the suggested serving, as we did). At our higher dosage we found this oil to be calming and helpful. We navigated our stressful day on an even keel and felt the oil was having a beneficial effect. Perhaps you would need to increase your dosage after a longer period of use, but this is a good product to begin your CBD protocol with.
Price (8.0 out of 10)
All CBD is expensive – there’s no getting around it unless some laws change. Elixinol’s price is toward the lower end of the usual range, so we consider it a good value for a good product. Given the potency, taste, and helpful information noted above, this is a well-priced oil.
