What Are CBD Patches?
What Are CBD Patches? If it feels like there is another new CBD product on the market every day, don’t worry, it feels like that to us too, mainly because they kind of is!
While many products are flashes in the pan, a few are here to stay, CBD bath bombs are certainly on that list, and one of the products currently growing most in recent time is CBD derma patches.
But what are CBD patches? How do CBD Patches work? And when would you use CBD derma patches?
What Does a CBD Patch Look Like?
A CBD patch essentially looks like a plaster (or a Band-Aid for our American cousins) and is stuck on the skin in much the same way.
You need to aim the patch at a venous part of your body (a bit with veins), because although it may look like a plaster, this is a much more complex and cleverer bit of kit.
How Do CBD Patches Work?
CBD derma patches are a slow-release form of CBD, which essentially act in the same way as a topical application (such as creams and lotions) but with a more gradual release slowly through the day, to allow for a gradual dose of CBD to be continuous through the day.
This slow infusion allows for a very different type of application of CBD than other products, which is intended to provide assistance for prolonged or ongoing pain.
CBD patches work through body heat, which activates the patch and allows a small amount of CBD to be released into the bloodstream through the skin.
Transdermal patches are far from a recent addition to the world, with nicotine patches to aid with stopping smoking and heat patches for pain amongst the multiple other uses of derma patches. It is only recent, however, that CBD and derma patches have been combined.
How to Use CBD Derma Patches
Whether you are using a CBD patch for pain (which is its most common use) or for anxiety (which is also a popular use) the logic is much the same.
Simply apply the patch to a part of your body with a good number of veins (if you are using it for specific pain, pick a part near or on the source of the pain) and leave it there.
The patch can be left there for the whole day, from the second you wake up, to the second you go to sleep (or a bit before, because it’s hard to take it off on your sleep). A good quality derma patch should continue to function as a slow release drip of CBD throughout the day.
Where to Buy CBD Patches
Well here’s when we have a nice easy answer for you. We have excellent CBD derma patches from our clever friends over at Huna, who offers both a 10mg and 15mg patch depending on what strength of CBD works for you.
These patches are 100% natural, and completely free of THC, which is rare for a CBD product, but is important when it’s a slow-release formula.
CBD for Pain
The science is still being carried out in terms of proving CBD can treat pain, but there is logic to it. CBD interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system, which aids in the management of pain in the body.
That doesn’t mean that CBD definitely works to assist pain, but between this logic and the numerous anecdotal stories of its effectiveness, it’s definitely enough partial evidence to pay attention to.
We’re not saying it will definitely work, but what we are saying is that if you are suffering from pain, and you think that CBD may offer some relief for you, then our excellent, high-quality CBD derma patches are certainly a good choice.
