-- Mastix LLC, a leading manufacturer of innovative functional supplement products, today announces that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued a Notice of Allowance for U.S. Application 14/732,072, a utility patent that claims a new manufacturing method for functional chewing gum that covers powder and oil-based active ingredients, including cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This platform patent technology covers the inclusion of a wide range of active ingredients, including cannabinoids (both naturally extracted and synthetically derived), which is a market experiencing explosive growth.
"The granting of this notice of allowance for our novel chewing gum dosage form validates the innovative nature of our platform technology and positions us well to offer our customers and consumers an alternative delivery system to pills, capsules and beverages that is widely acceptable and very familiar," said Bob Estey, CEO of Mastix. "We have the unique ability to incorporate either a single active ingredient, or multiple active ingredients, into the gum tablets we make to provide our customers with truly custom chewing gum products that will now be patent protected. Consumers are actively seeking alternative delivery vehicles for the many pharmaceutical and supplement products they currently take as pills or capsules. Chewing gum is a convenient and discrete way for consumers to quickly and efficiently deliver the benefits they expect from the products they use to improve their health and wellness. The extensive clinical studies the US Military performed on our caffeine gum proved that gum delivered through the oral mucosa is up to five times faster than swallowing pills or capsules while also maintaining high bioavailability of the active."
