A recent study confirmed that cannabis compounds may be effective at preventing cavities and gum disease than current oral hygiene products.
The study, Cureus Journal of Medical Science, found that the cannabinoids CBD, CBGA, CBG, CBN, and CBC killed more bacterial colonies in plaque than commercial toothpastes such as Colgate, Oral B, and others.
The researchers made their discovery after collecting plaque samples from 60 healthy participants. The plaque was collected with sterile toothpicks and spread across petri dishes. The dishes were then hit with either a mixture containing one of the five cannabinoids mentioned above, or a mixture containing one of the common toothpaste brands. On average, the cannabinoids prevented the growth of bacteria better than any of the three toothpaste products or controls.
Researchers concluded that cannabinoids compounds could also slow the development of antibiotic resistance seen in difficult-to-treat infections like MRSA. CBG is the cannabinoid to treat MRSA and we offer it in several different formulations.
Of course one doesn't have to wait for a cannabinoid toothpaste. One can simply drop a few drops onto their toothbrush, add a little of your favorite toothpaste and brush away bacteria. For that tooth that always is causing problems, try dipping a toothpick into the cannabis extract and carefully work it around the tooth and gum. Also, if taking cbd/cbg extracts sublingually, simple swish around in mouth before swallowing your daily dose.
