Review: Liberty Lixir 1000 mg CBD Tincture


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.

Today I'll be reviewing the Liberty Lixir Ultra 1000 mg tincture from Liberty Lotion.

This tincture is an isolate which means that it's gone through a very rigorous process to remove anything other than CBD from the oil. Like with just about every CBD-only product, there is no THC in this.

According to the Liberty Lotion website, each pump from the bottle gives you close to 7 mg of CBD oil - 6.7 mg to be exact. They talk about how the most effective dosage is different for everyone but mention that around 3-5 pumps every 4-6 hours seem to be about the average.


What you do is pump the oil under your tongue and wait as long as you can for it to absorb. In addition to CBD oil, this contains Vitamin E and coconut oil. I don't really like the taste of coconut oil, so I'm not always able to wait the recommended ~60 seconds. It also means I don't necessarily love to swallow the remainder of the oil that doesn't absorb.

I remedied this by following up the oil with a non-water beverage. The oil you swallow has to travel through your GI tract anyway and it likely won't give too much benefit... so I'm not worried about following it with soda or anything else really. 

Okay, with all that out of the way... how did this work?


Generally, when I'm dealing with a fibromyalgia flare-up like I have recently, I can't even wear clothing. I sit in a fleece blanket on our soft couch and try to make it through the day. I'm lucky if I can shower maybe once a week, depending on how long this flare-up goes. Everything hurts from head hair to pubic hair to anything touching my skin. I'm unable to sleep so I'm up at all kinds of weird hours instead of sleeping in bed with my husband.

I really freaking hate not sleeping by T when we're both home. It's something that is so out of my control and something that my diseases dictate. I always worry about resentment or loneliness. For a while, I just couldn't even try to sleep in our old bed. I would come in and read him a story or listen to a podcast and then head back to the couch once he was asleep.

After starting this tincture, though, I don't want to go anywhere without it.

I have slept in my bed next to T every single night. I'm crying writing this because it's been a long time since I made it through a week sleeping in our bed.

The fact that I've been able to sleep at all has contributed to this flare being less severe than those I usually experience. 

On top of that, though, I'm being able to go do things. Maybe wearing clothes still isn't the most comfortable, depending on the dose I've used, but I'm able to do it instead of breaking down in pain and crying. I've been able to keep lunch dates with friends and plan others because I have some semblance of a life back.

CBD, in general, is something that I love, but I have not ever tried something that impacted my life as much as Liberty Lixir.

I mean, I'm crying writing this right now. I have control over more of my life than I've had for years. It's no surprise that this, then, is pretty much my favorite product I've ever tried - EVER.

Oh, and did I mention they also have a reward system? There are so many things you can do to earn rewards, too!
