Product Review: Hemptown Chew CBD Gum

Product: Hemptown Chew CBD Gum (Mint Flavor) by Hemptown USA

Company: Hemptown USA

Hemptown Chew CBD Gum has the look of a TUMS tablet, but softens easily in the mouth with a subtle yet strong enough mint flavor to overpower any of the musty grassiness of many CBD-infused products. As with other “natural” chewing gums using sweeteners such as sorbitol, mannitol, xylitol, and/or stevia (Hemptown Chews uses all of these), the flavor quickly dissipates while the texture becomes rubbery, making chewing laborious. However, with a stated fifteen milligrams of CBD and five milligrams of CBG (Cannabigerol, the “chemical parent” of CBD and THC) per serving, Hemptown Chews have a lot more to offer the consumer than a more supple stick of Wrigley’s.

The packaging is pleasingly minimalist, with two servings per pouch. The fact that the gum is sugar-free, gluten-free, and has zero calories appealed to my inner health nut, while the high concentration of CBD and of CBG prompted me to keep working the gum over after it had lost its flavor and initial marshmallowy texture. Within about five minutes, the familiar lassitude I associate with CBD descended with a pleasant drop of my shoulders and a loosening in my chest that signaled a switch from the fight-or-flight mode of my workday to the rest-and-digest vibe I slip into once I clock out for the evening. Unfortunately, it was only twelve-thirty.

Though the physical relaxation was pleasant, for me the effect on my cognitive function was too strong. I enjoyed the gum’s swift action and its potency (if not the mouthfeel and flavor after the first minute or so) but would restrict my use of this product to times when efficiency and laser focus are not required. While perhaps well-suited for those CBD users with a higher tolerance, for me, Hemptown Chew is a “functional gum” whose function will be purely recreational.
