Can a CBD Chewing Gum Help You Cope with Covid?

Since exploding across the planet, the coronavirus has caused an immeasurable surge in frazzled nerves, with millions of isolated and stressed-out Americans turning to CBD – the non-intoxicating compound in cannabis – to cope with the pandemic, a Colorado startup is launching a CBD-infused chewing gum to help. Formulated with CBD and L-Theanine, an amino acid that promotes relaxation, mynd™ gum is poised to help the pandemic-stressed chew their way to a calmer mindset to cope with COVID.

Longmont, CO, Nov. 23rd, 2020 – According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the global pandemic is causing an alarming increase in stress-related struggles worldwide. “Adapting to lifestyle changes… and managing the fear of contracting the virus and worry about people close to us who are vulnerable, are challenging for all of us,” WHO notes. The health organization’s assessment was bolstered by a study lasts week from the American Psychological Association, which found that nearly 1 in 5 adults in the US say their mental health is worse than this time last year.

With stress on the rise health experts are not surprised to see a surge in demand for CBD, the non-intoxicating compound in cannabis. Now, with pandemic-induced stress and CBD usage on the rise, Cannovia, a CBD healthcare company, has launched mynd gum, a CBD-infused chewing gum to help stressed out, isolated Americans in lockdown cope with the pandemic.

“The mynd gum product line has been developed to elevate four distinct ‘states of mynd’ for CBD users who also love chewing gum,” said Brian Baum, Cannovia CEO. “By coincidence or fate, this product line – mynd CALM in particular – is entering the market at a perfect time to help people cope with unprecedented levels of stress.”

The four states of mynd gum, sold in two serving packs at $5/pack include “Calm”, “Energy”, “Focus”, and “Recovery”.

Product Description:

CALM – Likely to become the more popular gum type because of the current stress-inducing pandemic, mynd CALM provides the endocannabinoid system with additional cannabinoids to help regulate the body’s fight or flight response to maintain homeostasis and a calming effect with L-Theanine, an amino acid that promotes relaxation without sleepiness. mynd CALM comes in a refreshing and relaxing mint flavor. In the summer of 2020, mynd Calm received rave reviews from beta testing CBD enthusiasts, including Riley Spickler, a college junior at the University of Maryland who said: “I was feeling a minor stress attack. I chewed the CALM gum and after about ten minutes I could feel its effects. Instead of an escalating reaction, I felt some sense of relief. I was able to take deep, long breaths – and I felt calmer. It was refreshing”.

ENERGY – Energy drinks and pills are used by fast-paced consumers to combat low energy. Unfortunately, these products often have high levels of caffeine which means their energy surge is often followed by a crash with jitters. With its tropical fruit flavor, mynd ENERGY is different, combining the natural support of CBD and CBG, cannabinoids from hemp that supports the endocannabinoid system which regulates the body’s physiological functions so there is internal stability, along with energy-boosting caffeine and B vitamins that help the body convert nutrients for fuel, delivering an “I can do this” feeling and thanks to the CBD and CBG content, without the crash and jitters.

FOCUS – Leading busy work and personal lives with more distractions than ever, it can be difficult to concentrate on tasks in everyday life. With a great-tasting berry fruit flavor, mynd FOCUS combines the natural support of CBD and CBG, cannabinoids from hemp to stimulate the endocannabinoid system to maintain balance in the body’s physiological systems, along with the nootropic citicoline which supplies the brain with nutrition, FOCUS gum chewers can ignore distractions and focus on the most important tasks at hand.

RECOVERY – From a night of overindulgence or the next-level workout this morning, being your best now begins with chewing gum, mynd RECOVERY. It combines CBD that stimulates the endocannabinoid system to send help where needed to balance internal systems, lessen the effects of stress, settle the unsettled and provide a boost of energy that comes from caffeine and the amino acid taurine that together promote mental alertness. RECOVERY includes Vitamin C to counteract cell-damaging free radicals that can result from alcohol and B vitamins that help the body convert nutrients for fuel.
