About CanChew Gum
CanChew Gum is a patented, all-natural CBD based gum product. The ingredients in CanChew are of the highest purity and are steam-distilled—a meticulous process that preserves the integrity of the gum's ingredients better than typical extraction methods. CanChew passes rigorous "Whole Foods" standards and is safe for all ages. It offers the world's only and most advanced delivery method for cannabinoids in the form of chewing gum. CanChew is available in the United States and is in negotiation for multiple international distribution points.
CanChew has a great-tasting "cool mint" flavor and is sweetened with xylitol, an all-natural low-calorie sweetener which has been shown to fight dental cavities and plaque. CanChew is safe for diabetic consumers and is made without preservatives or artificial flavors. Each piece of CanChew is less than one calorie, which makes it an excellent way to help curb cravings when dieting.
About Cannabidiol (CBD)
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a cannabinoid derived from the hemp plant's stalk and seed. CanChew is a patented chewing gum containing naturally-occurring cannabidiol (CBD) from industrial hemp. Each piece of CanChew contains 50mg of CBD-rich hemp oil and up to 10mg of CBD.
CanChew Biotechnologies has spent substantial time and effort to produce an all-natural, Whole Foods-compliant, great tasting gum that contains CBD-rich hemp oil.
