CBD Hemp Oil Chewing Gum Provides Discrete Option for Hemp Consumers Worldwide
NEW YORK, May 14, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Industrial hemp biosciences industry leader, AXIM Biotechnologies, Inc. (OTC:AXIM), is proud to announce that the Company has successfully secured an exclusive license from CanChew®Biotechnologies, LLC (CanChew), to further develop and produce CanChew® gum, a unique, patented controlled-release cannabinoid-infused chewing gum.
“AXIM Biotech’s strategic focus is bringing to market global innovative solutions that set the ‘green standard’ in the industrial hemp industry and biotechnology,” states George E. Anastassov, MD, DDS, MBA and CEO of AXIM Biotech. “We feel that AXIM’s ability to research cannabinoids and introduce unique delivery methods is a catalyst that will drive new demand for both the consumer retail and pharmaceutical markets.”
It’s interesting to note that hemp and marijuana are both in the cannabis genus. Both plants are comprised of more than 80 of the same cannabinoids but in different proportions and concentrations. For example, industrial hemp has virtually no THC in it. Compared to marijuana, industrial hemp has no capability to elicit a psychoactive effect or so called “high.” AXIM Biotech’s gum will feature patented efficient-release of the non-psychoactive cannabinoid cannabidiol (CBD).
With the goal of providing consumers with a hemp chewing gum, AXIM Biotech’s CanChew® Gum provides vastly improved methods of absorbing 10 mg of CBD from hemp in each efficient-release naturally-flavored piece. Known for its smoking cessation gum products, Fertin Pharma has been contracted by AXIM Biotech to manufacture its new cannabinoid functional chewing gum line.
Dr. Anastassov continues, “AXIM Biotech is excited to announce that it will also offer consumers a choice of additional flavors and different cannabinoids through the CanChew Plus™ line.”
AXIM Biotech’s Chief Technology Officer, Lekhram Changoer MSc, BSc, adds, “CanChew Plus™ gum is perfectly balanced with CBD and hemp’s natural benefits. The unique taste, appropriate release profile and, most importantly, the uptake via the oral mucosal membrane makes CanChew Plus™ a must-have product.”
AXIM’s decision to lead with hemp cannabinoid-infused chewing gum provides new consumer options in the rapidly expanding hemp market. According to New Hope, popularity for hemp products is escalating; hemp is ranked 8th in the publication’s top 10. In 2013, just hemp food and body care products totaled $183 million. A recent report by the Hemp Industries Association indicates hemp retail product sales for 2014 are estimated at $620 million.
Dr. Anastassov adds, “We believe that the acquisition of the license from CanChew Biotechnologies is strategically important for AXIM’s revenue base and future growth. AXIM’s mission is to find hemp-derived solutions for health conditions with no known cure. We are extremely fortunate to have attracted and gained the support of the world’s leading scientists and business leaders on AXIM’s advisory board.”
