Cannabis patch

2018-05-16 06:01

IS 2018 the year of the cannabis transdermal patch?

Curious about the new buzzword? Afraid of the stigma associated with cannabis? Who can blame us for doubting the notorious “drug”.

The smell, the smoke, the high and the taste are deterrents to cannabis use.

If you hate the idea of smoking anything, the popular alternative is a cannabis transdermal skin patch. Using the CBD Patch is as quick and easy as sticking on a BandAid, a tiny patch that delivers pain relief and relaxation throughout the body. Transdermals use the same slow release dermafusion scientific principles as the nicotine or opioid patches. The nanotechnology enables the cannabinoids to transfer more easily from the skin into the bloodstream.

The product is odourless hence discreet enough for use at work or school. The patch does not cause the lift in mood such as the “euphoria” one gets from smoking the THC-rich flower.

Cannabis has been used as a homeopathic remedy for centuries. Patients use the CBD Patch to manage many conditions such as psycho-neurological disorders, breast cancer, rheumatism, sexual disorders, painful complications related to childbirth, fibromyalgia, diabetic nerve pain, chronic pain, muscle spasms, inflammation and sports injuries.

With some forms of pain, it is easy to determine the root of the problem, but with conditions such as fibromyalgia, it is often hard to understand the cause of the pain.

The pain associated with these types of conditions will often appear out of the blue, sending a sharp and tingling sensation. Without knowing the exact cause of the pain, patients are constantly left seeking solutions that are most of the time non-effective.

This is where cannabis patches come into the picture. Apart from being cost-effective, compared to conventional pharmaceutical treatments, the way they combat the pain is quite different. Cannabis patches deliver doses of CBD or THC straight to the bloodstream, avoiding the metabolism stage conducted by the liver.

This also allows the patches to provide a constant and slow absorption of the medicinal dosage, rather than when smoking cannabis, which provides a sudden “high” that wears off, or eating it.

They work fast and last for a long time, each patch is worn for 96 hours.
