Cannabis Use Causes CottonMouth; CottonMouth is Dry Mouth and Dry Mouth is Verifiably Detrimental to Your Oral Health

ZiiNGLES Alleviates Cannabis-Induced CottonMouth

At ZiiNGLES, we’re herbalists. We respect and champion cannabis as an extraordinary plant, a wonderful medicine, and a recreational and creative botanical marvel. And we’re happy to see it regain its well-deserved status as a healing plant and to lose its previous societal stigma.

But even cannabis has an undesirable side effect that can detract from its many benefits.

Colloquially known as ‘cotton mouth’ or ‘cottonmouth,’ cannabis-induced dry mouth affects virtually everyone who consumes cannabis, whether medicinally or recreationally, and whether by vaping, smoking, or ingesting it.

It was only in 2006 that scientists identified the mechanism behind cannabis-induced dry mouth. (See PubMed: “Inhibition of Salivary Secretion by Activation of Cannabinoid Receptors”.)

When the phytocannabinoid THC in cannabis binds to endocannabinoid receptors located within our salivary glands and brain, the salivary glands are inhibited from receiving their customary message to produce saliva. The result? Cottonmouth.


Cotton mouth resulting from frequent cannabis use can lead to periodontal disease and gingivitis. That is just the unfortunate truth of the matter.

The fortunate truth is that ZiiNGLES’ organic herbal mouth spray supports your body’s innate salivation process by encouraging your salivary glands to produce and secrete more saliva. ZiiNGLES quickly relieves your dry mouth so that you can experience the benefits of cannabis, without the well-documented detrimental oral health problems associated with dry mouth.


 ZiiNGLES is your powerful and effective herbal counterbalance to the troublesome—and harmful—side effect of cottonmouth.
