How It Works

Ingredients

  • Avocado Oil

    Loaded with prebiotic fiber which can help feed the good bacteria in your mouth.

    • Inhibits metalloproteinase (MMPs) which degrade collagen and other proteins in tissue. These are produced in periodontal disease to help remove degrading tissue.
    • Studies have shown that avocado oil may help prevent certain oral cancers.
  • Xylitol

    Balances the PH of the mouth.

    • Stimulates saliva production.
    • Makes saliva more alkaline which allows Calcium and Phosphate salts to move into weak enamel and help repair.
    • Causes bacteria to slowly starve.
  • Cocoa

    Contains theobromine which has shown significant remineralization in teeth in artificial decay tests

    • Contains polyphenols that help inhibit bacterial growth.
    • Tannins prevent bacteria from sticking to the tooth's surface.
    • Flavonoids inhibit plaque formation.
  • Clove Oil

    Pain relieving effects from eugenol.

    • Reduces the number of bad bacteria that contribute to gum disease and tooth decay.
    • Eugenol and eugenyl acetate have been shown in various studies to inhibit tooth demineralization.
  • Mint

    Balances the PH of the mouth, creating an alkaline environment which reduces the acids that create tooth decay.

    • Has natural antiseptic properties that inhibit bacteria.
    • Contains antioxidants which can help the body repair itself, prevent swelling of connective tissue and reduce bleeding.
    • Has essential vitamins and minerals that contribute to maintaining gum health and fortifying bone mass.
    • Creates a fresh mouth feel.
  • Zinc

    Can prevent bacteria from producing sulfur gasses.

    • Helps reduce plaque and bacteria.
    • Helps reduce demineralization and promote remineralization of enamel.

    Studies have shown CBD can help reduce inflammation.

    • May help relieve pain with tooth decay or infection.
    • Has antibacterial properties.

    Studies have shown CBG can help stimulate bone growth.

    • Also helps with inflammation and pain.
  • Vitamin K2

    Promotes healthy bones and teeth.

    Promote overall tooth and tissue health.

  • Calcium Carbonate

    Promotes healthy bones and teeth.

  • Alkaline Water

    Helps balance the PH of the oral cavity.

What is CBD?

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a chemical compound from the cannabis plant. It's a naturally occurring substance derived from hemp or cannabis. Unlike its cousin tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), it's non-psychoactive, meaning it does not get you high. CBD is used in a wide variety of edibles, tinctures, vape pens and cosmetics to help with inflammation, siezures, nausea, pain, anxiety, infections and much more.

What Studies Have Shown in Regard to CBD, Pain, Inflammation and Infection

Studies have shown when CBD is introduced to the ECS, it stops the body from absorbing a pain regulating compound known as anandamide- one of our bodies own natural cannabinoid molecules. Inhibiting the absorption of this compound shunts excess quantities into the bloodstream that in turn reduces pain. CBD has been shown in carious studies to inhibit inflammatory cells from being produces and migrating to the site of injury. This reducing inflammation and pain in that area, CBD has been tested against many firms if bacteria and shown to have antibacterial properties as well.

CBD and the Body

All cannabinoids, including CBD, produce effects in the body by attaching to certain receptors. CBD directly interacts with the endocannabinoid system and a number of proteins in the body and central nervous system. The endocannabinoid system contains two types of receptors, CB1, which is predominantly expressed in the brain and CB2, which is primarily found on the cells of the immune system. Most cannabinoids can bind to both types of receptors- CB1 & CB2. This is true for both the endocannabinoids – anandamide & 2-AG- and for phytocannabinoids like THC. However, the phytocannabinoid CBD doesn't directly trigger either receptor. Instead, it modifies the receptors ability to bind to cannabinoids.


What is CBG?

Cannabigerol is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, found in small amounts of the plant before maturation. It is found in much larger concentrations in the hemp plant. CBG is the chemical precursor to CBD, THC. And CBC. Cannabis plants produce cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), the precursor to the three main cannabinoid lines: tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), and cannabichromenic acid (CBCA).

Specific enzymes in the plant break CBGA down and “direct” it toward one of the three lines. The acids are exposed to ultraviolet light or heat, and voila, they become the cannabinoids we know: THC, CBD and CBC.

CBG and the Body

CBG interacts with the endocannabinoid system. Instead of modifying CB1 and CB2 like CBD, research has shown that CBG binds primarily with CB2 receptors and in high doses it could block other compounds from binding with CB1 receptors. By blocking CB1 it can help lessen the psychoactive effects of THC. The CB2 receptors help regulate the immune response, reducing inflammation and creating homeostasis. Although little research has been conducted for this cannabinoid, it is showing a wide variety of possible medical benefits. Which include, reduction of intraocular pressure, neuroprotective properties, stimulating bone formation and healing, antibiotic and antibacterial effects, and pain relief.

How CBG has shown promise to reduce pain, inflammation, stimulate bone growth and reduce bacteria?

Studies have been conducted showing the effects of CBG and other cannabinoids on bone marrow cultures. The results showed that they could stimulate bone marrow stem cells indirectly through the CB2 receptor. This suggests that CBG and other cannabinoids, such as CBD and THC may help with the healing of bone fractures by promoting new bone growth and studies to reduce inflammation by activating the nuclear receptor peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma (PPARy) and inhibiting the release of pro-inflammatory mediators and microglial cells.

In other words it inhibits inflammation in nerve and muscle cells. Researchers have also discovered antibacterial and anti-fungal properties in CBG. Most notably, CBG showed potent activity against Staphylococcus aureus – an antibiotic resistant strain of bacteria. These findings suggest potential for CBG as an antibacterial agent in treating bacterial infections that are non responsive to existing antibiotics.
