Marijuana Chewing Gum
The cannabis industry is growing, and studies are showing that this super-plant can help to cure a multitude of aches and pains, from the relief of irritable bowel syndrome to minimizing pain caused by fibromyalgia. Now there’s a pleasant solution that will benefit everyone: marijuana-infused chewing gum.
The active ingredient marijuana chewing gum, CBD, is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid , which means that you won’t get ‘high’ but you’ll still receive the pain relief from the CBD.
Axim Biotechnologies has created a chewing gum containing CBD called MedChewRX and is currently conducting medical trials.
The benefit to chewing the marijuana gum as opposed to inhaling or eating it is that it can be digested directly in the mouth, bypassing the liver for faster relief. Other benefits to the chewing aspect for pain sufferers is the neuroprotective and neuro-stimulatory effects on the mind, stress relief, stimulation of the cardiovascular system and improvement of age-related cognitive decline.
Chewing marijuana gum is also more socially accepted than smoking, and allows for those with fibromyalgia to get quick pain relief almost anywhere without fear of backlash from those around them.
There have been some side effects reported so far, though it is unclear what those are, and the medicine displays a lack of the “peak”, or a less potent high, associated with traditional forms of cannabis.
For now, more research is being done into how this can be a safe, effective delivery method for cannabis for pain relief.
The goal is to provide on-the-go relief for chronic pain sufferers so that they can continue to function normally throughout their day pain-free.
MedChewRX is set to be released in 2018. It will be the first official medical cannabis chewing gum approved by the FDA. Soon the gum will be sold in dispensaries.
