Wondering how to get rid of dry mouth? Dry mouth, cotton mouth – no matter what you call it dry mouth (or Xerostomia) is a common side effect of taking medication, chemotherapy, diabetes, aging, dehydration or even a fever. It can also be exacerbated by eating spicy foods, drinking alcohol, drinking coffee or soda, smoking, chewing tobacco, or using narcotics.
In addition to being annoying and uncomfortable, having dry mouth can lead to poor oral hygiene. We need saliva production to not only keep our whistles wet, but to help us digest our foods, keep our mouths clean and maintain a healthy pH levels to keep our gums and teeth in good shape.
If you’re a cannabis user, you’re probably well aware of the side effects. Cannabinoids or CBD in any form (whether smoking or edibles) will most likely lead to dry mouth. This sticky and uncomfortable sensation is because of the submandibular glands in our mouth. They’re natural CBD processors, and when we have cannabis in our system, our cannabinoid receptors tell the submandibular glands in our body to ignore the messages from our nervous system telling them to produce saliva.
There are natural ways to relieve the symptoms. You can chew gum, ease up on your sugar intake, decrease your caffeine use, limit your alcohol, suck on ice cubes, avoid salty and spicy foods, or even try a humidifier. But if that doesn’t seem to be working for you, the good news is that Doc Johnson, an innovator in the sexual health and wellness business since 1976, has developed Goodhead Wet Head Dry Mouth Spray!
