Chewing CBD gum from Every Day Optimal is one of the easiest ways to self-administer this beneficial cannabis sativa derivative. Just like any other gum, you can carry it around in your pocket and just pop one or two in your mouth (depending on your preferred dose) and chew on your merry way.
Unlike tinctures, oils and even other edibles, chewing gum can also deliver faster results as the CBD is absorbed via the mucous membranes and capillaries inside the oral cavity.
Apart from this benefit, CBD gum has other advantages as enumerated in the following sections that outlines who should be chewing on CBD gum. So who should be using CBD gum to get their regular cannabidiol dose?
Those Who Don’t Want the Attention
Even though the Agriculture Improvement Act that President Donald Trump signed into law in December 2018, dosing with cannabis sativa derivatives such as CBD still make some feel uncomfortable. The very mention of using a hemp extract can still raise some eyebrows and CBD users will love it if they are just left alone. Getting your dose from a piece or two of gum will not attract as much attention as say, using tinctures or using a vape pen.
If it is time for your dose, all you need to do is to chew on a CBD gum without causing any fuss from your colleagues at the office. Another side benefit is that some find the habit of chewing mildly annoying that they might even make an effort to look away.
Those With Tummy Troubles
There are those who may have a condition that makes them inefficient at absorbing plant extracts such CBD through their stomach lining. Others may also be too sensitive to such substances that it causes them to feel some bloating or experience an upset stomach. CBD gum, as mentioned earlier, enters the bloodstream via the mucous membranes inside the mouth so there’s no need to worry if you have a sensitive tummy.
Those Who Want to Dose Effectively
CBD gum usually comes in increments of 10 milligrams per gum. When supplementing with CBD, hitting the right dose that suits your particular requirement is key to getting the most out of cannabidiol supplementation. All you need to do is chew on two or more of the gum to hit your CBD dose sweet spot. Another advantage is that you can give yourself sustained low CBD dose throughout the day by chewing on one after the previous dose hits its third half-life. Of course, you may have to do a bit of experimentation to get the best spacing in between doses.
Those Who Don’t Want the “High”
Often confused with marijuana’s tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, CBD does not have the same psychoactive effects. In other words, CBD will not make you high even though it provides your body with the same (or better) benefits as THC. Although marijuana and industrial hemp (where CBD is extracted) belong to the same cannabis sativa family, hemp only contains .3% THC.
