Infused To The Core.

Xero Picks™ are handmade and infused “inside and out” and “top to bottom” with natural flavors and the highest quality ingredients. The natural birchwood used in our picks is freshly harvested in Maine.

Sublingual and Ingestible All In One.

When an active ingredient is administered sublingually, it is typically held under the tongue for 90 seconds so that the mucous membranes in the mouth can absorb it. However, Xero Picks™ utilize ALL the linings of your cheeks, tongue and lips for absorption as well as the oral cavity.

The main benefit of sublingual use is that the process bypasses the digestive and metabolic systems, allowing the compounds to reach your bloodstream and interact with the endocannabinoid system quicker.

Most medications utilize an ingestible delivery method, meaning the active ingredients pass through the digestive system and are metabolized by the liver, eventually sending the compounds to your bloodstream.

Feel the Tingle.

Xero Picks™ give your mouth our signature tingle because they’re infused with spilanthes acmella. Also known as jambú, spilanthes is derived from an herb commonly called the “toothache plant”. Jambú activates the nerve paths in the mucosa to release more saliva and speeds the delivery of our toothpicks' ingredients and increases absorption.
