Is oil pulling really effective?
Benefits of Oil Pulling:
- Whiter, straighter teeth
- Healthy, pink gums
- Increased energy
- Decreased migraine headaches
- Clear sinuses
- Less severe asthma
- Decreased allergies
- Improved PMS symptoms
- Regulated menstrual cycles
- Better sleep
- Clear skin and decreased acne
To date, there are only 24 studies on the benefits of oil pulling. In my research I saw a variety of testimonials with claims of benefits ranging from getting rid of grey hair to potentially helping cancer and AIDS patients as well.
How many times a week should I do oil pulling?
Use this CBD oil pulling chews recipe three to four times a week for three to 15 minutes or even daily for best results. Swishing longer than 15 minutes, has not shown to increase benefits and in fact swishing longer than 20 minutes is not recommended due to possibility of oil getting in to the lungs.
Can you take too much CBD?
You cannot overdose on CBD oil, and there is no established lethal dose. As with any new product , even natural ones, it is important to speak with your physician prior to beginning use. There are some slight risks associated with using CBD in high doses or for extended periods of time, including:
- Mild Low Blood Pressure
- Dry Mouth
- Reduced activity of T and B Cells
- Decreased Fertilization Capacity
- Reduced p-Glycoprotein activity
- Reduced activity of Cytochrome P450 (CYP450) Enzyme
Is Oil Pulling good for gums?
As an anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal, and bone stimulant substance, CBD has the power to restore, strengthen, and enhance oral health. It not only prevents the variables that cause cavities, decay, and gum disease, but it can also accelerate the healing process for existing damage and rebalance your vulnerable oral microbiome.
Your oral microbiome is a vital part of the system needed to kill toxins and pathogens in your mouth, but it’s also extremely delicate. A healthy oral microbiome contains billions of productive bacteria that resist colonization of pathogens, fight inflammation, support a strong immune system, and so much more. In fact, the mouth houses the second most diverse microbial community in the entire body.
A study in the Journal of Traditional and Complementary Medicine of showed:
“Oil pulling generates antioxidants which damage the cell wall of microorganisms and kill them. These oils will attract the lipid layer of bacterial cell membranes, and cause it to stick or get attracted, and pulled to the oil. During oil pulling, the oil gets emulsified and surface area of the oil gets increased. The process of emulsification of oil begins upon 5 min of oil pulling. This oil will coat the teeth and gingiva and inhibits bacterial co-aggregation and plaque formation. Thus plaque building bacteria responsible for dental caries, gingivitis, periodontitis and bad breath are removed from the oral cavity. Gums become pink, healthier and problem of bleeding gums is solved.”
You can see how the combo of oil pulling and CBD in this CBD oil pulling chews recipe are very effective.
Does CBD oil help with tooth decay?
There is still little research on CBD and dentistry. Since CBD has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal, and bone stimulant properties, it looks promising. Ultimately the best way to prevent tooth decay is thorough good oral hygiene practices and consuming a healthy diet.
Do I have to brush my teeth after oil pulling?
You always want to rinse your mouth and brush after using these CBD oil pulling chews recipe to effectively remove any residual toxins left in your mouth. It is also important to note it’s best to discard of the oil in the trash, as it’s possible the oils could effect plumbing.
Note: many traditional toothpastes can disrupt the oral microbiome. Consider these safer, non-toxic options instead:
For those with sensitive teeth: Squiggle Toothbuilder
For those looking for stain removal: Probiotic Charcoal Paste or DIY Charcoal CBD Oil Toothpaste Recipe
Normal teeth: This DIY Natural Toothpaste Recipe or Earthpaste

Start slow with CBD. You can always up the dose of your next batch. I recommend starting with 3 mg per chew, so you will have to do a little math. I had molds for 30 gummies and a 10 mg dropper so I used 9 droppers full of 1000 mg CBD.
