What You Should Know About CBD And Oral Health

CBD has made its way into oral health products. Here’s what the compound can do for your teeth and gums.

CBD has been added to an assortment of random products, with some of them targeting your oral health. There are CBD toothpicks, CBD toothpastes and straight CBD oil applied directly into the mouth. Despite how random this addition appears, there are some experts who believe that CBD provides benefits to oral health. Colgate has even made an investment in it.

Colgate’s recently purchased brand, Hello Products, released a line of goods featuring hemp seed and CBD oil. There’s toothpastes, mouthwashes, dental floss, and more — all of which contain the compound.

Craig Dubitsky, founder of Hello, explains that the addition of CBD to their products is a way for the brand to expand and grow into a company that isn’t limited to oral health. “What started our as an oral care line is now expanding into a naturally friendly personal care company. We’re confident we can provide a wide range of delicious tasting, highly effective, naturally-friendly products,” he said in a press statement.

Some cannabis experts believe in the validity of CBD in oral health since the compound has shown some promise as an antiseptic, analgesic and anti-bacterial element — three factors that matter when it comes to your mouth health.

Conditions such as toothaches, inflammation of the gums and sensitivity of teeth can be addressed with CBD, since the compound has been effective at treating pain and inflamed tissue, both factors that make up a big part of these conditions. CBD’s antibacterial properties can also be used to treat swollen and bleeding gums, since these are affected by the amount of bacteria in your mouth.

Aside from purchasing oral CBD products, you can try targeting the area of your mouth that’s bothering you with a few drops of CBD oil or tinctures. Of course, before you consume anything, it’s important to speak to your doctor and to keep in mind that CBD is a compound that’s still in development. For better or worse, there’s much we don’t know about it.
