Each piece of gum contains five milligrams of the antioxidant cannabidiol, or CBD for short. One pack of Swiss Cannabis Gum contains 120 mg of CBD - roughly equivalent to six grams of hemp - but with one significant difference: it doesn't get the consumer high. Roelli Roelli is the first company to pack so much CBD into a piece of gum while remaining completely legal.

CBD has many health benefits: the substance promotes relaxation and is effective against pain, cramps, inflammation, anxiety, psychosis and nausea. As an antioxidant, it also has cell-protecting attributes. CBD, which is extracted from the hemp plant, has been enjoying an increasingly high public profile as of late. Numerous studies show that CBD and cannabis products can help maintain good health. As a result, there are more and more people turning to CBD as a nutritional supplement to help them boost their general well-being. The medically recommended minimum dose according to many doctors and pharmacists is between 15 and 30 milligrams per day.

Swiss Cannabis Gum is easy to dose and doesn't have a bitter flavour, unlike tinctures and other cannabis products. On the contrary, it keeps breath fresh and helps maintain the natural flora of the mouth.

At the moment Swiss Cannabis Gum is exclusively available at pharmacies and chemists and in our online shop. The product was developed in cooperation with Medropharm, a Swiss company specialised in the development and production of products that contain cannabidiol. Medropharm guarantees the highest quality standards for the handling of this valuable natural raw material.
