CBD and Bad Breath


One of the most common causes of bad breath is lack of oral hygiene. In some rare cases, people can practice good oral hygiene but still have bad breath. In this article, we will look at some causes of bad breath and how CBD can help to combat them.

Gum Disease
Gum disease is often caused by poor oral hygiene, However, smoking, poor saliva production, drinking alcohol, stress, hormonal changes, and malnutrition can also give you bad breath. A good indicator that you may have gum disease is when you bleed when brushing your teeth.

Cannabidiol interacts with CB2 receptors to strengthen the immune system. It also promotes the release of cytokine acid, which has antibacterial properties. As a result, CBD can minimize gum disease and the pain caused with gum disease.

Tooth Decay
If you eat too much sugar and starch, your teeth may decay due to the presence of an oral bacteria called Streptococcus mutans which is found in this kind of foods. However, it’s not only starch and sugar, which can cause tooth decay but also oeating disorders, lack of enough fluoride, age, acid reflux and poor oral hygiene.
