Now you can chew cannabis gum to ease your chronic pain
Cannabis is known for its amazing effects on easing pain of all sorts: from irritable bowel syndrome to fibromyalgia to seizures to cancer pains. You name it! Many opt for smoking or eating cannabis to gain pain relief, but soon, you’ll also have an option to chew it.
The cannabis gum is called MedChewRx®, first to be FDA-approved
Axim Biotechnologies has developed the cannabis chewing gum called MedChewRx®. The gum is going through a series of clinical trials, with the goal of gaining FDA and equivalent international approval as prescription medications. Axim’s goal is completing Phase 3 clinical trials in early 2018.
This gum is made with fibromyalgia and multiple sclerosis in mind
MedChew Rx® is being developed as a pharmaceutical drug to treat pain, spasticity associated with multiple sclerosis (MS) and fibromyalgia. The gum is intended to offer patients more consistent relief than existing cannabis-derived products that are smoked or eaten.
MedChewRx® contains 5mg each of THC and CBD
The cannabis gum is formulated with 5 mg of cannabidiol (CBD) and 5 mg of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC and CBD are both natural compounds that are found in the cannabis plant. The chemical compositions of both elements might be the same, but to put it in the simplest form possible, THC is psychoactive, while CBD is not. Both compounds have an impressive list of ways that they support the human body.
99% pure pharmaceutical-grade cannabinoids are used
Axim Biotechnologies imports cannabis from the Dutch Government’s Office of Medicinal Cannabis, extracts and purifies cannabis strains into 99% pure pharmaceutical-grade cannabinoids to produce MedChewRx®.
Until the cannabis gum is out on the market, you can try these cannabis treatment options
1. CBD Oil
CBD oil comes in many forms: tinctures, capsules, and topicals. CBD oil offers therapeutic benefits without the psychoactive properties.
There are many different strains to choose from. Consult your doctor or research for the right strain for your purpose.
Cookies, brownies, chocolate, and drinks are just a few of the edible options. Again, make sure to choose the product with the right strain for your use.
