Gwyneth Paltrow CBD Cocktails...

Gwyneth Paltrow and CBD - Bottoms up to Gwyneth Paltrow and her new found love for CBD or cannabidiol and her experimentation's with the cannabis-derived extract! The Oscar-winning actress and lifestyle guru is the latest A-Lister to have discovered the therapeutic benefits of CBD - at Happy Hour no less!

The mum of two wrote up recipes on her lifestyle blog, Goop, explaining how to mix sundowner drinks with secret ingredient CBD oil for that feel-good kick. Up in Smoke, Gin & Chronic and Cannabis Cup are all on her CBD Cocktail Menu. Sounds delicious.

Her blog on the CBD soaked drinks read:

“Ringing in 2018 with a CBD-spiked cocktail intrigued many of us at Goop. Depending on where you live and what the laws are (they’re about to become even more relaxed here in Los Angeles), it seems like just about everyone is experimenting with cannabidiol (also known as CBD) oils and tinctures.

“Devotees swear it helps with everything from sleep and stress... and have started mixing it into smoothies, lattes, and—at certain restaurants and pop-ups around town—cocktails”.

Thanks for the CBD recipes, Gwyneth. That’s our Saturday night sorted.

More and more people are taking CBD to feel good, feel better, and ward away those winter bugs and blues. We’ve talked before about CBD oil being added to salad dressing and artisan chocolate-with-benefits to “help you relax and unwind”.

Products with CBD in have been available for years in California, which legalised the medical use of marijuana in the 1990s. And of course now you can buy CBD products from the CanaXen range, on our online store, Ebay and Amazon.

At Canaxen we’re rubbing in CBD Oil, vaping and taking tinctures as a 100% natural supplement.

If you have ever called us with a query you might have spoken to Daniel, who has been down in the dumps with a toothache of late. Dabbing a couple of drops of Canaxen Gold into his gums gave him instant relief.

We heard a similar story from PJ who burned her hand on her hair straighteners. The CanaXen she applied immediately took the sting and heat out of the burn and it healed cleanly without a scar. Thanks for letting us know what works for you.

Madeleine wrote in to tell us her CBD “revelation” (her words). She had been having dreadful period pains, but since she has been taking CanaXen Gold and Hemp VG daily, all her symptoms have subsided.

She says, “It was after having children that my periods became heavier and began to give me more discomfort. I mostly managed with a hot water bottle and paracetamol, but in the last couple of years it has got worse, with verging on migraine-type headaches lasting days, uncomfortable bloating and a general feeling of grotty-ness, sometimes lasting two weeks before I am due. I started taking CanaXen about three months ago, initially taking  three drops of Hemp VG and CanaXen Gold and building up to five or six depending on how steady my hand is with the pipette! I hadn’t taken it specifically for period pain but it has been a happy side effect. I can honestly say that my last three periods have been uneventful. No headaches, no days-long bloat and discomfort and in fact none of those usual clues that my time of the month was upon me. Everything else from my diet to my exercise regime has remained the same, so I put it down to regularly taking my CanaXen. It is now firmly part of my daily routine”.

We love hearing feedback from our customers, like PJ and Madeleine, who tell us all kinds of heart-warming stories about how CanaXen’s range has helped them feel better. Do get in touch to tell us how you are getting on with your vapes and oils via twitter, Facebook or email

Since cannabis is mainly known as a recreational substance, many people forget that it can also be a valuable "medicine" and a potential treatment for ailments from skin irritations to pain relief. The psychoactive component of cannabis, THC, that key ingredient in medical cannabis, is what tends to make the headlines and tends to give the regulators the jitters. The non-psychoactive component, CBD, is often overlooked. We say, take note.

CBD  - or cannabidiol - is one of around 80 different natural cannabinoids that can be harvested from the cannabis plant. CBD is legal everywhere and doesn’t make you high. Repeat: legal everywhere and does not make you high. Numerous anecdotal reports and some scientific studies suggest CBD is a wonder compound that reduces inflammation, lessens pain and anxiety, controls seizures, and has other healing or symptom-easing powers.

Forbes Magazine says hemp-derived CBD product sales are expected to be a billion-dollar business within three years. A massive amount of research into the health benefits of CBD and its effect on mental health disorders is also underway in the scientific community, including an observational study at the University of Colorado.

Canaxen is a UK-based supplier and manufacturer of hemp-derived phytocannabinoids.  At Canaxen we extract CBD from hemp, which is a strain of cannabis, using the CO² extraction or decarboxylation method, considered the highest tech and cleanest process. The advantage of this technique is that the end product is the purest form of CBD oil which is highly potent and chemical-free.

CanaXen. Feel Better.
