CBD—It’s awesome for oral health!
BY STEVE BORN
The benefits of CBD are plentiful, and thousands of people enjoy CBD on a daily basis for:
- Alleviating aches and soreness
- Promoting focus, mood, and other brain-specific functions
- Calming the mind, body and nerves at night, allowing one to fall asleep faster and uninterrupted for a longer period of time
What you may not know is that CBD is excellent for supporting oral health, especially gum health. Here’s just some of the research done with CBD on this specific area of health:
pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/19070683 -- In a 2009 study performed on rats, researchers divided the subjects into three groups: a control group, a group with gum disease, and a third group with gum disease that was treated with CBD. The group that researchers gave CBD to showed less bone loss and inflammation in their gum tissue.
pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/16406050 -- This study looked at the endocannabinoid anandamide, which is produced naturally by the body. Researchers found that the endocannabinoid receptors, CB1 and CB2, were present in gum tissue, and that anandamide helped to decrease inflammation. This means that not only does orally dosed CBD interact with the receptors found in the gums that help reduce gum tissue inflammation, but that supplemental CBD also increases anandamide levels in the body. It does this by stopping the enzyme that breaks down anandamide; thus, more CBD in your system via CBD supplements means more gum-soothing anandamide, too.
pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/18681481 -- This research showed that CBD’s antibacterial properties may help reduce gum-swelling while brushing your teeth regularly to help eliminate bacteria.
pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32038896 -- This study concluded: “Cannabinoids have the potential to be used as an effective antibacterial agent against dental plaque-associated bacteria. Moreover, it provides a safer alternative for synthetic antibiotics to reduce the development of drug resistance.”
These studies add yet another powerful benefit to the ever-increasing ones supplied by CBD!
