CanaFarma Hemp Products (Vancouver, BC) expanded its functional confectionary line, Yooforic, with the launch of three new hemp oil-infused chewing gums. They are set to hit the market in August.

Yooforic Go is designed for athletes and fitness enthusiasts. Each piece of gum features 5 mg of hemp-derived CBD combined with ginseng and caffeine to help boost energy levels and magnesium citrate to help reduce fatigue and maximize energy. It comes in a Mint Zing flavor, with 250 mg of full spectrum hemp per pack and 50 mg of naturally-occurring CBD per pack. 

Yooforic Pro is formulated for golfers, with a blend of naturally occurring CBD, ginseng, caffeine, wild green oat extract, sage and magnesium citrate to help the body's endocannabinoid system boost concentration while elevating a calm focus. It comes in a Chill Mint flavor, with 250 mg of full spectrum hemp per pack and 50 mg of naturally-occurring CBD per pack.

Yooforic After Party helps the mind and body combat hangover-like effects after a night of overconsumption with a blend of naturally occurring CBD combined with sage, trans-resveratrol, feverfew extract, caffeine, ginseng, and magnesium citrate to lessen brain fog, headache, and stomach upset. It comes in a Cinnamon Calm flavor, with 250 mg of full spectrum hemp per pack and 50 mg of naturally-occurring CBD per pack.

Each piece acts fast, absorbing in 2 - 10 minutes, says the firm. In fact, CanaFarma hypothesizes that gum shows meaningful bioavailability and fast onset of action due to rapid absorption in the buccal cavity, and its subsequent release in the systemic circulation via a phased influx. The hypothesis is being tested in an ongoing pilot study at Wageningen University. Preliminary results show that CBD-containing gum is able to release considerable amounts of CBD in the buccal cavity. By analyzing the remaining CBD percentage in the gum, after 30 minutes chewing, it was determined that of the original amount of CBD in the gum, 16-24% was retrieved, which means 76-84% of the 10 mg was released in the buccal cavity. It has the potential to be increased when participants are instructed to chew intensively. Furthermore, ongoing development of the gum has shown potential to increase CBD release. The study is scheduled to be completed in August.
