CBD Patches

CBD patches are transdermal patches which are designed to absorb CBD through your skin and into the bloodstream. The concept is very similar to nicotine patches and is a popular way to take CBD due to its simple and effective nature. Check out our extensive range of patches with a host of different strengths to suit whatever your needs.

What Is CBD?

CBD is short for cannabidiol, which is a cannabinoid found within the cannabis plant. Cannabidiol is usually derived from the hemp variety of the plant, as the hemp plant contains large amounts of CBD but little amounts of THC. To remain legal, CBD products must contain less than 0.2% THC, which is nowhere near enough to cause a high. Once extracted from the plant, CBD is then used in a range of other products such as patches. Although early research into the health benefits of CBD is encouraging, it is still in its early phases and so no claims can be made about its use.

What Are CBD Patches?

CBD patches are pieces of plastic that you place on your skin in order to absorb CBD through. It can take up to four days for all the CBD to be absorbed, and it is the preferred method of taking CBD for many as it is both simple and effective.

How Do Transdermal CBD Patches Work?

Transdermal CBD patches work by diffusing CBD through your skin cells. The CBD then makes its way through your bloodstream to the endocannabinoid system. For this reason, the transdermal patches therefore work best when placed in an area where blood vessels are closer to the surface. We recommend using CBD patches in discreet areas where there is minimal chance they will be snagged or torn off.

Why Choose CBD Patches?

CBD patches are a preferred choice of many as they can administer CBD over a long period of time. Others often buy CBD patches because they are discreet and can be subtly placed on the body to not be noticed. CBD patches are perfect for those who don’t have time to take other CBD products which can often be more time consuming, such as vaping. Finally, patches can be administered to a targeted area of our body if you want to administer CBD to a specific area.

Are Full Spectrum CBD Patches Better Than Broad Spectrum?

Whether broad or full spectrum CBD patches are better is completely down to personal preference. Full spectrum products contain the full spectrum of cannabinoids, hence they contain up to 0.2% THC and so many people claim they can provide an entourage effect. This is the belief that CBD and THC work together to provide a greater effect than CBD would have on its own. On the other hand, broad spectrum products have the THC completely removed during the extraction process and so they are ideal for people who want to avoid the presence of THC in their system.

Where Should I Place My Patch?

If you want to administer CBD to a certain part of your body then you should place the patch near to this area. However, CBD patches work best when placed in an area where blood vessels and capillaries are close to the surface of your body. Ideal areas include wrists, ankles, upper arms, shoulders and the back of your neck.

How Long Will It Take The Patch To Work?

The length of time it takes CBD patches to work will depend on individual factors as well as the strength of the patch, but roughly the CBD will enter your bloodstream within an hour of applying the patch.

Matrix and reservoir patches are similar in that they both feature an adhesive layer that is placed upon your skin. However, the differences come in the way they release the CBD.
