Cannabinoid patches are just one of many ways to consume CBD, CBG, and other exciting hemp cannabinoids. Patches affix to the skin where they slowly transport cannabinoids through the skin’s surface and into adjacent cannabinoid receptors. Though these patches generally won’t cause a person to feel “high,” they may still exert some therapeutic potential by triggering and maintaining extended cannabinoid activation.
What are Cannabinoid Patches?
Cannabinoid patches are thin pieces of adhesive fabric or plastic infused with cannabinoids like CBD, CBG, and CBN. They are a form of topical hemp application by which cannabinoids and other skin-friendly ingredients absorb through pores in the skin in a steady, time-controlled manner.
Patches are incredibly popular among consumers today, likely due to their improved bioavailability and long-lasting design. Basically, patches bypass metabolism so that more cannabinoids can make it into the system and remain active longer. In fact, a single cannabinoid patch can have a positive impact on the body for 12 hours or more, thus providing long-term relief with fewer doses.
How do Transdermal Patches Work?
There are many types of transdermal patches all designed to deliver specific compounds to the blood in a consistent, time-controlled manner. Nicotine patches are some of the most common transdermal patch types, though others like medicinal patches, hormone patches, and even caffeine patches are also popular.
Essentially, transdermal patches work by holding a special mixture of compounds against the skin to slowly absorb into the bloodstream. Notably, cannabinoid patches require careful formulation to enhance permeation and manage the flow of compounds over extended time periods. These compounds may rest in reservoirs or in the adhesive itself and slowly absorb over the span of a few hours. Importantly, cannabinoid patches remain active until removed or until all compounds have been absorbed.
How to use a CBD Patch
Before applying a CBD patch, always refer to the package instructions to ensure proper placement and application. However, generally speaking, the best place to affix a cannabinoid patch is on areas that are hairless, flat spots with minimal fat or muscle tissue. For example, the wrist, lower back, or the base of the neck are popular choices for transdermal cannabinoid patch applications.
The first step to applying a transdermal CBD patch is to watch and dry hands and the application area thoroughly. Once the area has been prepped, peel the backing off the patch and stick it to the skin. The effects will set in gradually within a few minutes and remain active for up to 12 hours. When finished, remove the patch and clean the skin at the application site.
