The Company's commitment to functional confectionary products reflects its hypothesis that a gum would show meaningful bioavailability and fast onset of action due to rapid absorption in the buccal cavity, and its subsequent release in the systemic circulation via a phased influx. This delivery route also surpasses the stomach and liver environment, preventing degradation by acids and enzymes and first-pass metabolism.

The hypothesis is being tested in an ongoing Pilot Study at Wageningen University. Preliminary results are encouraging and show that CBD-containing gum is able to release considerable amounts of CBD in the buccal cavity. By analyzing the remaining CBD (%) in the gum, after 30 minutes chewing, it was determined the amount of CBD released within this time window. Of the original amount of CBD in the gum, 16-24% was retrieved - i.e., 76-84% (of the 10 mg) was released in the buccal cavity. Despite the fact that this percentage is already quite high, it has the potential to be increased when participants are instructed to chew intensively. Furthermore, ongoing development of the gum has shown potential to increase CBD release. The Study is scheduled to be completed in August. (2)

With each premium quality chewing gum serving a unique function, Canafarma will continue its objective of leading the charge with industry-leading, unique delivery methods resulting in the highest levels of bioavailability without a prescription.
