What is CBD Oil?
CBD oil is derived from the stem, leaves, and flowers of the Hemp plant.
- Hemp classifies as Cannabis Sativa containing less than 0.3% THC.
- Marijuana classifies as Cannabis Sativa containing more than 0.3%.THC.
- Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the compound that causes intoxication or ‘high.’
The 2019 Farm Bill made these classifications legal under US Federal Law.
It is vital that you only buy CBD products from a reputable company. CBD production is currently unregulated, and therefore you might unknowingly consume a product with high THC levels. All our CBD products are organically farmed, and independently third-party batch tested. Every package comes with a unique QR-Code to tell you everything you need to know about your CBD product.
What is CBD Gum?
CBD Gum is infused with CBD oil that is added to the gum in the production process. It is available in the regular pack of gum style that you are familiar with from a convenience store.
What are the Benefits of CBD Gum?
CBD oil tinctures are great, but the convenience of CBD gum has many benefits:
CBD Gum: Flavor
The flavor of CBD gum is better at disguising the taste of CBD oil. While some don’t mind the viscous texture of CBD oil, others who do not like it should try CBD gum.
CBD gum is available in several flavors, including the fresh menthols you are already familiar with, which will disguise the oil’s taste and help keep your breath fresh.
CBD Gum: Releases CBD Faster than other CBD Edibles
While there are edibles such as CBD gummies available, the CBD gum will be absorbed quicker. Gummies and other edibles have to travel through the digestive tract to be absorbed in your stomach. This lessens the bioavailability of the CBD in your system.
CBD Gum: Helps You to Stay Focused
Gum is recognized as a great way to focus your mind. If you are anxious, the very act of chewing gum can distract you from anxious thoughts. This, coupled with the benefit of CBD, can help focus your mind.
CBD Gum: Can Help You on Your Journey to Quit Smoking
Chewing CBD gum is not only a welcome distraction method, but the CBD may help you stay calm and focus when you are trying to ignore cravings.
CBD Gum: Traveling
It’s not always practical to use CBD oil tinctures when traveling. CBD Gum is easy to use and allows you to monitor your CBD dose on the go.
The legality of flying with CBD within the US is dependant on which states you are traveling to. The laws, both state and federal, are rapidly changing, which makes it difficult to keep track of the current regulations in each state. Keep up to date with the TSA regulations regarding flying with CBD.
It’s not recommended to carry CBD products to international countries, as the laws vary from country to country. However, it is possible to chew CBD gum before a flight to enjoy the benefits on your trip later.
As a rule, everyone metabolizes CBD differently, so it’s vital to have a full picture of how it may affect your ability to concentrate while driving. If you take CBD to help you sleep, you must never use it before driving.
How is the CBD in CBD Gum Absorbed?
The action of chewing and saliva production will breakdown the gum and release the CBD.
- Your mouth will absorb the CBD oil particles through the mucous membranes in your cheeks and under your tongue.
- The effects can happen quickly as saliva will activate the breakdown of the piece of gum almost immediately.
- It is thought that the smaller particles in CBD gum will be absorbed quicker than CBD oil drops under the tongue.
The amount of CBD gum you chew will determine how it affects you. Each piece of gum has a specified quantity of CBD oil. This allows you to monitor your intake of CBD. It’s advisable to start low and see how you metabolize the CBD. If you want to increase the quantity of CBD, you absorb, chew more gum spaced evenly throughout the day.
It is important not to chew too much CBD gum. If you are a regular gum user, it can be a subconscious reaction to pop another piece in your mouth. If you do this with CBD gum, you will lose track of the dosage and might suffer some side effects, such as an upset stomach and dizziness.
