Pot Chewing Gum to be Introduced in 4 States in October

CanChew BioTechnologies, Netherlands-based company, will introduce a cannabis-based version of the candy in October.

Medical Marijuana,  a U.S. company, now holds half of the company, which will be marketed for health and wellness as well as pain management.

The gum will be be almost THC-free which will relieve pain but not get users high, reports Big Buds, and will have almost total absorption by the body.

Medical Marijuana plans to launch a marijuana chewing gum in the U.S. this October in California, Colorado, Arizona and Washington D.C., also reports Confectionary News.

Dr. George Anastassov, the director of CanChew sees the gum as breakthrough in pain management. "Unfortunately, in the last 30 years, there has been absolutely nothing new in pain killing products," he said. "Current drugs have many dangers…Opioids have been a tremendous social burden, causing thousands of deaths each year."
