Let me introduce to you another natural gum containing CBD. This comes from Lithuania and it is made by the company ENDOCA, which specializes in all types and formats for the CBD.

It comes with carton boxes with 10 individually wrapped gums inside. The pieces are not coated and have a brown color, distinctive of the natural gum base that they are made of.

Each gum contains 15mg of CBD.

The company emphasizes a lot the Natural claim in their marketing.

You can learn more in their website www.endoca.com

 

Natural Gum with CBD 24/02/2020

The company TWO WISE CHIMPS, from UK, presents natural chewing gums in combination with a few different concepts:

  • With CBD. 5mg per piece
  • Caffein (40mg per piece) and vitamin B5
  • Beauty gum: With Selenium, Biotin, Green tea extract and Niacin
  • Charcoal: With 45mg of activated Charcoal

 

Again , this goes in the direction that I have already commented in the past: CBD, Natural gum base… and it is presented in sleeved blisters with 9 pieces of coated pellets each one.

This year I visited ISM, as I do since 1997, and once again it has been a source of new discoveries. As a passionate person for functional gums I find in this great exhibition all what i need to satisfy this passion.

Here I want to show you one product that goes in the direction of the CBD trend. Euphoria is the Czech brand and they offer a very broad range of products (chocolate, candy, muffin, tea,…) containing Cannabis. In the case of chewing gum, it is predented in zip-bags containing 3 coated pieces of gum each. It is also presented in blisters with a cardboard sleeve. Each blister contains 12 pieces if coated gum and each piece contains 18mg of CBD (there is another version with 12mg per piece).

Nice product, indeed, that taps into this emerging category with somehow blurred lines in terms of legislation.

You can see it here.

Hemp Chewing Gum 12/01/2017

I want to forward to you today the article published by Confectionerynews.com about the functionality of a chewing gum that contains Cannabidiol (CBD).

The article mentions that inital bioavailability studies show promising results and now the company AXIM Biotech (specialized on research of products containing cannabis) will start clinical trials directed to alleviate symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). The bioavailability studies have been conducted with chewing gum containg 30mg of CBD. The current product in the market contains only 10mg of CBD. It is marketed in the USA under the brand Canchew(R). See the link here for the website of the product: Canchew

The gum is made by tabletting process instead of the traditional extrusion process. This is more familiar to pharmaceutical companies and one the best solutions to use chewing gum as delivery system for active ingrendients. The tabletting process has many advanatges (e.g. is done at low temperature, so it does not damage the active ingredient) but also some disadvantages (the chewing profile of the final product is not as “good” as a standard chewing gum, due to the hardness and the dryness of the piece).
