The CBD-infused edibles market is rapidly growing and because the product is so diverse, it is able to be used in a variety of forms. The latest and one of the most popular is marijuana gum. It has a unique flavour and of course the biggest draw are its health benefits. Since legalization, we are starting to see marijuana gum pop-up at convenience stores and other common retailers. The gums are CBD-infused and do not contain the psychoactive ingredient of THC.
It is the CBD component that contains the actual health benefits which can help with stress, anxiety, sleep, as well as a range of chronic illnesses. There is medical research proving that CBD can help reduce inflammation, chronic pain, and even epileptic seizures. The gum can therefore be categorized as a health product versus other products that you might find by the cash register at your corner store.
When used on a regular basis, CBD-infused gum can help with more common ailments such as digestive issues, bloating, and stomach aches. It can be used as a regulatory alternative medicine instead of taking over-the-counter drugs like antacids and anti-nauseants. With that said, as with any pharmaceutical or health product, there is the potential for side effects. What consumers can be sure of, however, is that there the psychoactive component of the plant has been removed.
Some suggest that it would be wise to view marijuana gum as a pharmaceutical gum and to treat it in that way. It is still regulated in many states and of course, is only recommended for adult use. Cannabis has been consumed for a long time, but the various forms of consumption have only recently become available and the industry is exploding. The more consumers becoming aware of its benefits as well as the increase in access to various cannabis products, the more innovative products we are likely to see.
