How to Find the Best CBD Mints
What sets the best CBD mints apart from their inferior competitors? Well, quality comes to mind of course, but there’s more to it than just that.
Lots of people are turning to CBD mints for anxiety relief and help with mental and physical ailments like stress, depression, pain, and sleeping trouble. And, there’s good reason for it.
CBD-only mints offer all of the great benefits of CBD in a super convenient format. Since they’re absorbed through saliva instead of the digestive system (more on that below), they work faster and provide more bioavailable CBD than many other methods, including oils and gummies.
So, how do you choose the right kind? Here’s what you need to know about CBD mints, including how to pick out the perfect product for your needs.
What are CBD Mints?
CBD mints are an innovative alternative to traditional CBD oils and edibles, combining the fresh feel of a breath mint with the therapeutic properties of CBD.
Our mints dissolve just like any other breath mint, and include 5mg of CBD from extracted hemp oil. They’re a fantastic CBD alternative for the 40% of people who don’t like swallowing pills, and work up to five times faster than other oral dosage methods.
CBD Mint Effects & Benefits
You can expect to get the same effects out of CBD mints that you would get out of other CBD products. The dosage does tend to be lower, but this can be an advantage for people who are new to CBD or who are just looking for light relief.
So what are the benefits? Aside from being pre-measured for simple dosing, CBD mints have a great taste and don’t come with some of the drawbacks of other CBD products, such as the loss of bioavailability that comes with CBD oils and gummies and the potentially harmful long-term effects of CBD vaping.
Then there are the benefits of CBD in general. CBD has surged in popularity in recent years, especially among athletes, students, and those looking for anxiety relief at work. While it’s not a miracle drug, it has far-reaching effects that many people rely on it as part of their daily routines.
How are CBD Mints Processed in the Body?
Just like with other CBD products, we still have much to learn about exactly how CBD goes to work in the body. What we do know is that its benefits seem to come from its interactions with the body’s natural endocannabinoid system, which works with other systems throughout the body and brain to promote balance.
CBD mints are absorbed through saliva, or more specifically, the buccal gland in the mouth. This allows the CBD to bypass the metabolism for faster results and higher bioavailability.
The low dosage in each mint means it’s generally safe to take multiple mints and/or to take them throughout the day. Some factors that will ultimately affect how your body absorbs the mints include:
- Your age and weight
- Your current health conditions
- Your previous history with CBD
We recommend starting with a low dosage and working your way up from there. And don’t worry if you don’t feel anything specific. Unlike THC, CBD is non-psychoactive, so you shouldn’t expect to feel noticeably different after taking CBD mints. You can learn more about how CBD works here.
How to Pick CBD Mints
Where you get CBD products from is just as important as the types of CBD products you choose. At MedCBDx, we’re proud to be the leading creator of CBD-oil infused mints and gum, with a patented process that ensures our mints are safe and effective—and that they include exactly as much CBD as the package says they do.
As a good rule of thumb, only buy CBD mints from established CBD brands that use high-quality organic CBD products and lab test their products for accuracy. That way, you know you’re getting a great product, and that you’ll get the benefits you’re after.
