All You Need to Know About CBD Patches

The CBD market in the UK is still nascent but it is experiencing explosive growth. Every week there seems to be a new brand or new range of products that are launched claiming to be the best option in the UK CBD market. There is now an array of different products each with different methods of enabling you to consume your daily dose of CBD. 

CBD now comes in all kind of formats from CBD gummies to CBD bath bombs and CBD alcoholic products are on the rise too. With numerous different marketing campaigns claiming that a particular method of consuming CBD is the most efficient way to get CBD into your system. CBD is beginning to be added to everything including things like shampoo and pillow mist. The phenomenon of CBD is unlike any vitamin products or food supplements that are available for sale and this is likely because CBD is associated with cannabis which gives it a much wider appeal.

The primary objective of supplying great CBD products is to ensure that the CBD contained within the product is of the highest quality. At Cannacares we only use the highest quality of CBD ingredients whether it is CBD isolate or Broad-Spectrum CBD.

One of the most popular and innovative CBD products on the market at the moment is CBD patches. CBD patches are comparably inexpensive and more effective than CBD oil or CBD capsules. CBD patches deliver a steady dose of CBD across the skin barrier and into your bloodstream using transdermal delivery.

What Are CBD Patches? 

CBD patches are similar in appearance to a standard plaster or vitamin patch. They are discreet and comfortable to wear, and you only have to think about it once a day. Cannacares CBD patches are left in place for 24 hours and are changed on a daily basis to ensure that you achieve the ultimate cumulative effect of the CBD. It is important to use CBD over an extended period of time as it builds up in your system and gradually begins to have a positive impact on your health and the balance of your endocannabinoid system.

The Cannacares 10mg and 20mg CBD patches contain pure Broad-Spectrum CBD and do not contain any THC. THC is an abbreviation of tetrahydrocannabinol which is the psychoactive compound within the cannabis plant. It is THC that causes users of cannabis to get high. THC is classed as a narcotic in the UK, and it is illegal to possess THC or formulate products that contain THC.

Our CBD patches are formulated using Broad-Spectrum CBD that is sourced in California. We use the highest quality of CBD Broad-Spectrum to ensure that our CBD patches have the ultimate effect and can truly help people manage their chronic pain, assist with sleeping problems and mental health conditions. Using Broad-Spectrum CBD ensures that you receive some terpenes as well as CBD to maximise the efficacy of our CBD patches.

Why Are CBD Patches Better Than CBD Oil? 

CBD patches are an incredible delivery method as they do not have to pass through the digestive system meaning that a higher percentage of the CBD enters your bloodstream. You can even use CBD patches in cohesion with CBD oil, so it is not necessarily a direct choice between the two. 

A CBD patch only needs to be applied once a day and it lasts for an entire 24 hours. This means that the CBD is steadily released across an extended period. The CBD is absorbed into the bloodstream via transdermal delivery and the CBD is not broken down by the liver and digestive system. When you use a CBD oil or take a CBD capsule, it is broken down by your digestive system and only a small percentage of the CBD contained within the product actually enters your bloodstream, to enhance the effect of the CBD. 

Also, if you do not like the sensation of using CBD, you can simply remove the patch and the effect should wear off within a couple of hours. Whereas with an ingestible CBD product, you are fully committed to feeling the effects of the CBD for the duration for the dose.

What Do CBD Patches Do?

A CBD patch is in contact with your skin for 24 hours and gradually releases CBD into your bloodstream. You do not have to worry about forgetting to take your daily dose of CBD and you do not have to carry a bottle of CBD oil around with you all day. CBD patches could be great at easing symptoms of chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia, arthritis and multiple sclerosis

Many people also use CBD patches to improve the quality of their sleep and it can also assist people who struggle with getting to sleep.

What Can CBD Patches Help With?

Sleep is one key thing that CBD patches can help with. As the CBD builds up in your system throughout the day, by the time you go to bed there is a substantial amount of CBD in your bloodstream that it actively binding to your body’s cannabinoid receptors. This means that by the time you head to bed, there is enough CBD in your system to help you get a good night’s sleep.

Many users of CBD patches that suffer from a chronic pain condition like fibromyalgia or arthritis have spoken about how effective CBD patches have been in treating their daily pain and using the patches has led to an improvement in their daily quality of life.

Cannabinoid deficiency is a new concept, and it is conceivable that many people are cannabinoid deficient, and it is these people who experience the most positive effects from using CBD. Common symptoms of homeostasis not operating properly within your body are chronic pain, low quality of sleep, poor sleeping patterns, high levels of unexplained anxiety and depression. All of these symptoms are part of a vicious cycle, as if you are not sleeping properly, your mood will not be great, and you will be more susceptible to pain problems. 

How Do CBD Patches Work?

The human body’s skin can excrete substances that it deems to be toxins, but the skin can also absorb substances. Transdermal delivery utilises this aspect of the skin to deliver drugs efficiently. 

One benefit is that CBD patches have very little waste and ensure that the CBD is delivered straight into the bloodstream.

The CBD passes through a concentration gradient, which is formed because the CBD patch has a higher concentration of CBD than your skin. The CBD is contained within the patch’s adhesive and the Cannacares patches are designed to ensure the concentration gradient is active for 24 hours and after the period finishes all of the CBD has been absorbed by the body. This slow but steady delivery of CBD ensures that your body builds up the amount of CBD in your body gradually and it has a great cumulative effect. This encourages your body to balance perfectly and helps you achieve the optimal level of homeostasis.

Can CBD Patches Get You High?

Due to the fact that CBD patches do not contain any THC, they cannot get you high. It is the THC compound that causes the users of cannabis to get high. Our CBD patches use Broad-Spectrum CBD meaning that there is no trace of THC so there is no chance that they will get you high.

CBD can lift your mood, but it will not cause any psychoactive effects or alter your perception of the world around you. 

How Long Does It Take for CBD Patches to Work?

The effects of CBD patches are not immediately felt, and it takes a few hours before you can feel the noticeable effect of the CBD. However, the CBD enters your system quite quickly, however for instant relief, CBD vape products are probably your best option.

However, it is best to use CBD patches for three or four consecutive days before you make a definitive assessment. After this period, it should be apparent after this period whether CBD patches are working for you. 

Using CBD is not like taking morphine or fentanyl patches, the effects are a lot more subtle but can have a superior impact on your health over an extended amount of time.

How long CBD takes to work is dependent on a number of individual differences. Your diet is a crucial factor, if you have a chronic pain condition or an auto-immune disease the diet you choose to eat can dramatically impact how much your condition effects your daily life. Poor nutrition can lead to a variety of health conditions and is an underlying factor in many instances of chronic pain problems. Daily exercise is also an incredible way to improve your health and CBD patches can help to enable you to exercise properly.

Can You Shower with A CBD Patch?

We do not advise that you wear your CBD patch in the shower or bath. It is best to place your CBD patch sticky side up while you shower or bathe within the 24-hour period of your CBD patch. 

We also do not recommend swimming with your CBD patch on. It is also important to apply a CBD patch to a dry area of skin. 

What Are the Side Effects of Using CBD Patches?

CBD products as a whole have very few side effects. Some people may get a slight headache, this is likely due to taking too much CBD. The best way to rectify this is to reduce your dose of CBD. This very rarely happens with CBD patches as they provide a standardised dose that has been carefully optimised to ensure this doesn’t happen.

Bowel movements and a loss of appetite are both side effects that some people experience when using CBD. 

One issue that may arise from using the CBD patches daily over a long period of time is that they may irritate your skin if you consistently use them on the same part of your skin. To prevent this, it is advisable to use the patches in different places on your skin and if you do experience skin irritation, it is best to have a couple of days off from using the patches and make sure you moisturise on the affected area. 

How Do CBD Patches Make You Feel? 

CBD patches definitely will not get you high and you will not experience any psychoactive effects. There is zero THC in the CBD patches so this is guaranteed. The impact the patches have will depend on many factors such as weight, height, body mass and the cannabinoid levels within your body.

You will likely feel a lot more relaxed after using CBD patches and if you struggle with chronic pain or chronic anxiety you will likely get some relief.

Many people find they sleep a lot better when using CBD patches and this can often lead to a lift in your mood and positivity about life.

Do CBD Patches Work for Back Pain?

There are so many different factors that can cause back pain, each case is unique, and no guarantees can be made. If it is nerve or tissue damage, it is advisable to see a professional or a doctor. There are many people who use CBD to ease their pain and CBD is much safer than many OTC painkillers and especially opioids. 

The key thing when trying to relieve back pain, is to discover the root cause of the problem. Is it caused by external or internal factors? CBD patches can help you live with the pain and can enable you to carry on with your normal daily life. However, if it is a serious back pain issue, surgery may even be required.

What Are the Benefits of CBD Patches?

One of the key benefits of using CBD patches is that you do not have to remember to consistently take your doses of CBD throughout the day. You are provided with a daily dose of CBD through one patch.

CBD patches do not have any wastage or spillage unlike CBD oils. This means that the CBD is more effectively delivered, and you get to feel the impact of the CBD to a greater extent.

You can either apply the CBD patch at the source of the pain. But it can often be best to place it on a venous part of your body such as the outside of your upper arm, inside of the wrist or on your ankle.

If you have serious pain problems, using a CBD pain in cohort with a CBD vape or CBD oil may lead to the greatest amount of relief from your symptoms.

CBD patches contain no THC so there is no way they can get you high or cause any psychoactive side effects. 

CBD patches are easy to use, are cost effective and seem to be the preferred method of consuming CBD for those looking to treat chronic pain issues with CBD.
