CBD patches are created from CO2 extracted hemp oil for use directly on a targeted area.
Not long ago, CBD patches were just a cool idea —nobody in the industry actually made them. Now, they are the most popular choice for those looking for muscle, joint, or back relief in a specific area. With these hemp oil patches, a generous amount of CBD is delivered directly to the targeted area. They feature a controlled release of CBD over the span of several days, so you’re not constantly reapplying like you would with a lotion product. Read More
If this is your first time hearing about CBD transdermal reservoir patches, then you are not alone. Although transdermal patches have been in the market for a while, they were restricted to other types of drugs. Over the years, however, it has been discovered that CBD has pain-relief properties. Learn more about Made By Hemp’s transdermal CBD patches and how they can provide you with natural relief.
What Is a CBD Transdermal Patch?
As mentioned, transdermal patches have been used for a while now. They are attached to a particular area in your skin where they transmit cannabidiol straight into the bloodstream to bind with CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors. The concept is similar to how birth control patches work. But in the case of CBD patches, they contain cannabinoid molecules and permeation enhancers added to a gel that can penetrate the epidermis, straight to sources of inflammation and pain. Since these patches are applied to the skin, they get into the body faster and are absorbed in a higher concentration than tinctures or capsules.
Where Do You Place the CBD Patch?
It’s as simple as removing the protective paper that comes with the patch and placing it against your skin on the affected area. Since many people use these patches as pain relief for an injury or delayed onset muscle soreness, it is recommended you place it directly on the joint or muscle that is hurting. The CBD molecules will seep into the skin, and you will start to feel the relief in no time.
Are CBD Patches Effective for Pain?
According to studies done, the patches are perfect for pain relief. Since CBD is known to have pain relief properties, it works to ensure this happens. According to studies, the patches are more effective than other delivery systems. The main reason for this is that they do not have to go through digestion. Any of the cannabinoids components are lost during digestion before they get into the bloodstream.
With the patches, the cannabinoids are absorbed directly into the bloodstream. If you feel like the patches are not effectively reducing your pain, then you might want to pair them up with other ways of getting CBD into your body. You can either add tinctures or capsules to your daily regimen. Most people, however, they begin to see results when they use the patches.
How Long Does It Take for a CBD Patch to Work?
How fast you begin to feel the effect of the patches will depend on several factors—top of the list being how intense your pain is and whether you are using the matrix or reservoir patches. The effect of the patch, on the other hand, can last anywhere from 6 to 12 hours, and some can stay effective for as long as 96 hours.
One way to ensure that you get the best effect from the patches is being keen on where you place them. Having them in areas where they can quickly get absorbed in the bloodstream will help you feel relief faster. Ensure you place them under a thin layer of skin, so it can get absorbed into the body easily.
Benefits of Patches
There are various reasons why many people prefer using CBD patches to other forms of CBD:
They are effective: Compared to the other methods of getting CBD into your bloodstream, CBD is 50% more effective. You can be assured that most of the CBD will get into your bloodstream as it is applied directly to the source.
They are effective for longer periods: As mentioned earlier, the effects of the patch stays on for up to 96 hours. You do not have to change the patch until then. It comes in handy if you need long-term pain relief or often forget to take your medicine on time.
They are discreet: With CBD patches, you do not have to carry around bulky bottles of pills or tincture. You simply apply it to your skin and go about your day. There is no need for reminders except maybe to take it off, so you can live life without the worry of forgetting your dose.
Are There Side Effects to CBD Patches?
The one thing everyone wants to know when they hear about CBD products are the side effects. While CBD is safe from most consumers, some might still experience some minor reactions, including:
If you notice any of these symptoms and they become disruptive to your daily life, you might want to stop using the patches until you consult with your doctor before continuing.
