What Are CBD Patches?
CBD patches, or cannabidiol patches contain CBD oil, which is made from a “nonpsychoactive” compound found in hemp plants. CBD patches are similar to a plaster or band-aid, making them discreet, easy to wear anywhere on your body and easy to apply. They are also a great option for those who don’t like the taste of CBD oil or other CBD products. Our 16mg CBD patches are made using healing ingredients, such as CBD, menthol, omega 3, 6 and 9, and turmeric. Our customers love this combination of healing ingredients and have found them to provide localised relief from discomfort or pain.
How Do CBD Patches Work?
CBD patches offer a number of potential benefits, including relief from pain and anxiety, and they are a convenient and easy-to-use option for those who want to get their CBD fix. After applying a CBD patch, your body’s heat will activate the patch, which starts diffusing CBD oil into your bloodstream directly through the pores on your skin.
What Are The Benefits Of CBD Patches?
CBD Patches offer lots of benefits, including:
- Providing a slow release of CBD over a 24-hour period.
- Delivering an accurate dose of CBD every time.
- CBD patches are waterproof and discreet, so you can leave a patch all day without giving it a second thought.
- If you don’t like the taste of CBD products, using patches can provide benefits without the taste.
CBD patches are a popular treatment for chronic pain because they work by gradually releasing CBD oil into the bloodstream through the skin. They are also said to help with anxiety, depression, and sleep disorders. CBD patches are generally best suited for localised CBD benefits, so if you want to use CBD to treat aches or pains, they should provide quicker and more effective relief to the target area. CBD patches can also be more convenient for those with busy lifestyles as you only need to change the patch once daily, rather than taking regular doses of oral CBD products depending on the dosage you require. This means you can apply your CBD patch in the morning and go about your day with targeted pain relief.
Can I Use CBD Patches For Pain Relief?
CBD has been proven to treat aches and pains, such as joint pain, so if you are hoping to use a CBD patch for pain relief in a specific area, you should find our CBD patches suitable for your needs.
CBD has been found to be exceptionally helpful for pain caused by inflammatory conditions such as arthritis and multiple sclerosis. The molecule can interact with the body in two different ways, which is why it is quite helpful with pain caused by different underlying causes. Firstly, CBD is known to interact with the endocannabinoid system and helps it perform better in carrying out various physiological functions. Endocannabinoids can block pain receptors and significantly reduce nerve pain. Pain caused by inflammation can also be treated with CBD. Localised pain, discomfort and muscle tenderness, swelling, and soreness are best treated with CBD patches. Recent studies have also shown promising results in using CBD patches to relieve period cramps.
Why Use CBD Patches Instead Of CBD Oil?
Research conducted in 2018 established that CBD patches offer faster relief to localised pain than CBD oil or edibles. This is because oils and edibles have to get metabolised before getting absorbed into the bloodstream. Patches release CBD into the bloodstream directly, offering targeted effects within an hour.
More Effective Than Other CBD Products
CBD patches are a great way to get an accurate CBD dosage because they are absorbed faster than other delivery systems. This is because CBD bypasses the digestive system and enters the bloodstream directly through the skin. This means that you will feel the effects of CBD much faster than if you were to take it orally. Quite a few people are aware of the concept of bioavailability, but it plays a key role in offering quick health benefits.
No Major Side Effects
The side effects of CBD patches are not well known, but they are assumed to be minimal. CBD is a fairly new product and has not been extensively studied. However, it is generally considered to be safe. Some people may experience mild side effects such as drowsiness or dry mouth. It is also possible that CBD could interact with other medications you are taking. If you are concerned about any potential side effects, it is always recommended that you speak to your doctor or pharmacist. CBD patches are a convenient and easy way to get your daily dose of CBD. They are also discreet, so you can wear them anywhere without anyone knowing. If you are looking for a safe and effective way to take CBD, patches may be a good option for you.
Applied Once Per Day
Another prominent benefit of CBD patches is that you will not have to take CBD after every few hours. The slow-release mechanism of CBD patches ensures that CBD keeps entering the body at a consistent pace to make it work more efficiently. A single patch may offer relief for at least 10 to 12 hours. Oral CBD doses are known to be long-lasting, but they can only work for no more than 4 to 5 hours.
Discreet Delivery Method
If you are avoiding CBD products because of stigmas and misconceptions associated to it, then you can go for CBD patches, as they are a discreet way to use CBD.
How to Apply CBD Patches
CBD patches are easy to use and can be placed on the skin in seconds with absorption beginning within a few minutes. Their effect is maximised if the patch is applied on a hairless area close to the aching area for quick pain relief effects. Simply peel the backing from the CBD patch and place the sticky part on a hair-free area of your body where you are experiencing pain or discomfort. You should replace your CBD patch every 24 hours if for daily CBD benefits. If you find any residue left over after removing your CBD patch, you can wash the area with warm soapy water to remove it.
Where To Apply CBD Patches
CBD patches work best when applied with a relatively large skin area, such as:
- Inside of the wrists and bicep
- Back of the neck
- Lower back
- Lower thigh
- Behind the knee
If you have some hair in the area you want to apply a CBD patch, such as your legs, you may find it easier to soak in water before removal to avoid discomfort.
How Long Do CBD Patches Take To Work?
Most people begin feeling the effects of the cannabidiol patches (CBD patches) within an hour, with peak effects being felt after 24 hours.
However, the time it takes for the patch to take effect can vary depending on factors such as:
- The strength of the patch
- The quality of the CBD
- Your response to CBD
Generally, cannabidiol patches are designed to remain on the body for 24 hours. Therefore, you may experience relief anywhere from a few minutes to several hours.
How Long Do CBD Patches Last?
One CBD patch will slowly release CBD over 24 hours before needing to be replaced. When you buy CBD patches from Prym Health, each box contains 30 patches which can be used daily as required.
What CBD Patch Strength Should You Choose?
The strength of the CBD patches you should choose depends on the following;
- Your individual needs
- The severity of your symptoms
- Your experience with CBD
If you are new to CBD, we recommend starting with a lower-strength CBD patch and gradually increasing the dose as needed. This can help you determine your ideal dose and minimise the risk of side effects. We also have a complete guide to CBD oil strength which can also help you determine your needs.
If you’re unsure, we recommend you consult a pharmacist or GP to help you determine the appropriate strength for your needs.
