What even is CBD Gum?

Is gum good for the teeth? Bad for the teeth? Bad for the gut? Well, it all depends on the kind of gum you get! Gum is able to get rid of pesky food debris lodged in between the teeth and increase saliva flow, therefore preventing bad bacteria forming in the mouth! Sugary gum, on the other hand, exposes your teeth to sugar for an extended period of time and feeds the bad bacteria in your mouth; making it an overall determinant to your oral health. Most chewing gums today are sugar-free, BUT they use artificial sweeteners to replace the sugar. These artificial sweeteners can have adverse effects on health. This is especially true because the most common of these sweeteners is aspartame! To make matters worse, our mouth is extremely absorbent due to blood vessels under the tongue that absorb ingredients directly into the bloodstream. So, if you’re chewing gum with aspartame, this will then be absorbed directly into the bloodstream!

To provide you with an alternative that utilizes the research behind how the body absorbs nutrients, we bring you a CBD gum that can satisfy your chewing pleasures while improving your oral and overall health! The maximizing the exposure to the absorbent blood vessels under the tongue are why it is recommended, when taking a CBD tincture, to hold the oil under the tongue for about 30 seconds before swallowing. This allows the CBD to be absorbed into the bloodstream through those blood vessels. This is also how CBD gum works: the chewing of CBD gum allows the CBD to be absorbed into the bloodstream immediately! Not only this, but chewing gum with CBD could be of huge benefit to one’s oral health! Research has demonstrated that CBD is both antibacterial and anti-inflammatory – therefore creating better prevention of harmful bacteria in the mouth and supporting healthier gums and teeth.

Sustainable gum for the environment?

Did you know that gum produces the second highest amount of litter? It’s second only to cigarette butts! Additionally most gum is not biodegradable and has made its way into the fish population! 80 – 90% of gum is not properly trashed. This is why our CBD gum is not only formulated using organic, real ingredients and zero artificial colors or preservatives, but it is also 100% biodegradable – therefore not harmful to the environment. It will simply breakdown and dissolve!

Create Focus when you’re stressed!

We understand that chewing gum is a habit that most people implement to retain focus. Having a physical thing to do with the body can eliminate tension. This is why golfers are now following Tiger Woods’ lead and chewing gum on the course! (Rumours say lots of pros actually chew CBD gum..) Well, CBD is known to increase focus – so for some serious focus, we think this is truly a match for a match!
