CBD chewing gum is a relatively new concept, but it's quickly growing in popularity as a method for consuming a consistent dosage of CBD across a period of time without having to fiddle around with an oil. We're in the fortunate position here in the UK where we have a number of CBD chewing gum brands that are actually worth checking out. Before outlining our recommendations we'll give a brief overview of why we think CBD chewing gum is a good idea:
We know that CBD is best absorbed by the body when you consume a CBD product sublingually because of the thin skin beneath your tongue. This is because the CBD reaches your bloodstream faster than it would if the CBD were to be swallowed and absorbed by your digestive system. The great thing about CBD chewing gum is that when you chew, the CBD is absorbed into the thin membrane within your mouth very quickly, allowing the CBD to take effect quickly.
On a recent trip to the continent, we came across a brand called Amstergum in a cannabis shop. We loved the branding and the idea so took some home. We were hugely surprised to realise that the brand is sold in a couple of places around the UK.
The gums seem small but they are very mighty. They have a very strong minty flavour with a tiny bit of happiness. They are 100% plant-based and vegan so after a while they do start to get gooey but that is to be expected with this kind of product. The packaging is sustainable too.

Blockhead is a popular chewing gum brand that has created a CBD gum and added it to their popular range. We're a little confused by their offering - the product page mentions that the gum is full spectrum but also THC free, which doesn't match up. But anyway, this is a popular product and is stocked in loads of shops across the UK. Each piece of gum provides 3mg of CBD. Give it a try!
How much is it? 6 pouches for £25

Similar to Blockhead, Two Wise Chimps is a popular chewing gum brand that has introduced a CBD chewing gum product. Each piece of gum provides 5mg of CBD so it's slightly stronger than the Blockhead gum, and it's also sugar-free. We reviewed this gum in detail here, so check that out. Overall we were pretty impressed by this product and would recommend you check it out.
