Do CBD patches work?
Yes! The heat of your body activates the patch and causes it to release a small amount of CBD into your bloodstream through your skin. The good thing about transdermal administration is that the CBD is absorbed through the skin and directly into the bloodstream. It bypasses your lungs, liver, and stomach (the places where your body filters or breaks down the cannabinoid).
Are CBD patches good for anxiety?
CBD patches contain CBD which can be helpful for anxiety but is still more effective for localised pain.
Can you drive with CBD patches?
For sure. They contain only CBD, which is safe for driving.
Why use CBD pain patches?
It's all about your preference - for some people, using patches for chronic pain is the easiest way to use CBD (as opposed to oils or ointments for pain). Just stick the patch on and forget about it for a while.
What type of pain are they best suited for?
Additionally, a patch will be more effective if you have a specific area you want to treat, such as your shoulder or lower back, rather than dealing with general or scattered pain and inflammation throughout your body.
How to use CBD patches?
The patches are not intended to be applied to mucous membranes or broken skin (open wounds). Be sure to read the instructions on the packaging before applying, but generally follow these steps.
Take the adhesive patch out of its packaging and apply it to the sore or injured area. Adhesive patches are best used on soft tissue areas, such as the lower back, and not, for example, on a joint such as the elbow, where they can peel off with movement. Wear the patch for no more than the time recommended by the packaging, remove it, and reapply another if necessary.
