Should You Swallow CBD? Science Says Chew On It

Should You Swallow CBD? Science Says Chew On It

Today, there are so many CBD products on the market—and each one sounds better than the next. Post-workout waters? Infused chocolate? Premium CBD lotion? Before you say yes, please, consider that the body absorbs every type of CBD differently based on the carrier material. (More on that later.) 

Favour is a new way to consume CBD, using chewing gum as the vehicle. We’re not just gum enthusiasts; our method is science-backed and our product is engineered to maximize its benefits and give you consistency. If you’re wondering why we chose gum, then this post is for you. Read on to learn more about Favour’s innovative delivery system. 

 

Get to know bio-availability

To start off, we’re going to give you a quick science lesson on something called bio-availability. Nothing you consume—whether food or vitamins—is absorbed in full. Bio-availability is the amount of a substance that can actually be used by your circulatory system (which delivers blood, oxygen, nutrients, and other good stuff across your body). Every consumable product has a different level of bioavailability.

When it comes to CBD, not all forms have equal levels of bioavailability either. Gummies, drinks, capsules, and other forms that need to pass through your digestive system have next to none bioavailability by the time your body processes them. Researchers have found that taking CBD products sublingually (under-the-tongue) or through the oral mucosal route (in the mouth’s inner lining) can be significantly more effective than other methods. This type of consumption is thought to produce more potent effects and deliver as much actual CBD into the bloodstream as possible. 

 

Chew on a better source of CBD

You guessed it—because you chew Favour, it’s absorbed directly through the lining of your mouth and cheeks. Our method ensures up to 80% bioavailability—and that’s why Favour may help you feel calmer, manage your anxiety, keep your focus, aid recovery from physical activity, and more. 

CBD isn’t known to cause intense, negative side effects, so if you feel good or have the okay from your doctor, you can chew Favour as much as you like throughout the day (we recommend starting with one piece a day, since it’s powerful stuff!). 

 

Fuel your CBD habit on-the-go

Another benefit to our chewing gum system is its portability. We created Favour for people like you. We’re New York City-based and know that it can be tough to grab a single moment for yourself. With Favour, you can sneak in self care post-bagel, between back-to-back meetings, in the airport TSA line, and any time you’re on the run.  Our packaging and product are discreet enough that you can use it in formal settings like your office—with no judgement from nosy coworkers. 

A pack of Favour fits into your clutch, your gym bag, or even your pocket, and it only takes about 10 minutes of chewing for the CBD to begin taking effect. We designed our product so you can take back control anytime or any place you need to. 

 

Meet an everyday experience, elevated

Favour’s design makes the ordinary extraordinary. Chewing gum is no longer for blowing bubbles or saving a bad breath day. Favour gum empowers you to create rituals on your own terms. Creating a special moment doesn’t have to come with all the fuss

Every dose is perfectly packaged into a single piece of gum, so you never have to guess at how much you’re taking. Favour is an easy-to-use way to find calm amidst the chaos you experience from time to time, and keep yourself grounded. You’ll get peace of mind knowing that a simple act like chewing gum can set off a positive chain reaction to impact your day.
