AXIM Biotech Announces the Production of CanChew Plus™, the Next Generation Controlled Release CBD Chewing Gum

19:00 EST 28 Feb 2017 | Globe Newswire

NEW YORK, March 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AXIM Biotechnologies, Inc. (AXIM Biotech) (OTC:AXIM), a world leader in cannabinoid research and development, began production of CanChew Plus™, the next generation of the company’s award-winning controlled-release cannabidiol (CBD) functional chewing gum.

CanChew® is the world’s first patented controlled-release cannabinoid chewing gum containing 50 mg of hemp oil and 10 mg of CBD.

CanChew Plus™ contains the same active ingredients and is designed to be 60% smaller than the original CanChew® gums for an improved chewing experience. Most importantly, CanChew Plus™ features a new and improved oral mucosal delivery system through microencapsulation that increases the bioavailability of the active ingredient from less than 50% after chewing for two hours with the prior version of the gum to 80% absorption rate of CBD in just 30 minutes of chewing.

In its natural form, cannabinoids are lipophilic, not water-soluble and tend to stick to the chewing gum matrix, therefore diminishing effective release into the bloodstream. Microencapsulation renders cannabinoids soluble and dramatically increases the bioavailability of CBD, while bypassing the first-pass hepatic metabolism.

“We are excited to introduce the new and improved version of our popular controlled release CBD chewing gum. With patented microencapsulation technologies, the new products will offer higher absorption rate and more predictable delivery of our hemp oil extracted CBD. As we move forward with various clinical trials, we remain committed to bringing better cannabinoid based nutraceutical product to consumers,” said George E. Anastassov, MD, DDS, MBA and Chief Executive Officer of AXIM Biotech.

CanChew Plus™ is a unique industrial hemp based chewing gum that is distinctly different and superior to any other brands of gum on the market. Features listed on the CanChew website include:

  • Non-habit forming
  • No prescription needed
  • Available in all 50 states
  • Great-tasting mint gum has no artificial sweeteners or preservatives
  • Non-GMO, gluten free, vegan and kosher

Featured in Healthy Living Magazine, CanChew® was also recognized by the HealthyLiving Foundation and honored with its Triple Leaf Award.
