A recent study explored the effect of cannabinoids and dental care.
The study done by Belgian researchers discovered that CBD, CBG, CBC, and CBN were more effective at fighting plaque than traditional methods, including popular toothpastes.

Sixty adults between the ages of 18 and 45 were separated into six groups based on the Dutch screening index. Plaque from each adult was collected and separated into two Petri dishes, each with four separate areas.
In the first dish, the plaque was treated with CBD (cannabidiol), CBG (cannabigerol), CBC (cannabichromene), and CBN (cannabinol).
The second set of plaque was treated with cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), Oral B, Colgate, and Cannabite F (a toothpaste with algae and pomegranate).
The results of the study learned “cannabinoids were more effective in reducing the bacterial colony count in dental plaques as compared to the well-established synthetic oral care products such as Oral B and Colgate.”
Additionally, the study concluded “Cannabinoids have the potential to be used as an effective antibacterial agent against dental plaque-associated bacteria. Moreover, it provides a safer alternative for synthetic antibiotics to reduce the development of drug resistance.”
