AXIM ® has found that other cannabinoid delivery methods such as smoking, oral / GI route with reduced uptake have side effects and a reduced efficacy. AXIM ® Biotech is developing chewing gum as a new functional method for the uptake of cannabinoids via the oral mucosal membrane as a superior alternative that is safe, effective, discrete and socially accepted.Dr. Anastassov, MD, DDS, MBA and AXIM ® Biotech CEO further states: "An ideal cannabinoid delivery method should allow for predictable and controlled release of the active ingredients, which should bypass the first-pass liver metabolism thus increasing the bioavailability of the cannabinoid and decrease inactive or harmful metabolites. It should not be socially stigmatizing, such as using tablets, capsules, sprays, vapes, etc. It should have a pleasant taste and consistency and lack of undesirable side effects such as uncontrollable psychotropic consequences. It should not induce food cravings and should be economically affordable for both producers and consumers. Chewing gum meets all of these criteria as well as provides multiple additional advantages." Lekhram Changoer, MSc, BSc and Chief Technology Officer of AXIM ® Biotech states, "AXIM ® is pleased to report that the project is on track. After having developed the extracted and purified cannabinoids, the MedChew™ RX drug product is in the process of development whereby different prototypes are developed with a variation of the drug product in different gum layers. This is a very important step in order to create the option to choose for the best drug product after the bioavailability tests in order to assure an effective, sustained release of the drug product in the mucosal membrane area."
