What is a CBD Patch?
We’ve covered the ins and outs of topical, transdermal, CBD, and patches… now, let’s combine everything we’ve been talking about.
CBD Patch. Ingenious, no?!
Basically, a CBD Patch works like a plaster that you would put over a cut or graze. But instead of putting it over an external wound, you put it over an internal one.
For example … maybe you play a lot of tennis, and now on particularly cold nights, your tennis elbow flares up. You might want to whack a patch on it.
Or – you take your dog out for a run and feel your left calf starts to seize up. To help relax the muscle and reduce the onset of muscle soreness, you apply a patch.
We love patches for their versatility, usability, durability, and simplicity.
Versatility: you can pretty much use a CBD patch anywhere. On your knee, shoulder, ankle, groin… anywhere with a surface area.
Usability: a CBD patch is a pretty good all-rounder. Although designed to target muscle and joint soreness, the CBD will still be beneficial to your whole body. Another bonus – studies16 show that transdermal medications affect more than just a localized area. By entering the bloodstream, the medication can be transported around the body. So if you’re feeling stressed or anxious, place a patch over the inside of your wrists, for a short-cut route into your bloodstream.
Durability: We can’t speak on behalf of all CBD Patches in the world. But we can attest that Specktra’s Patch will give you 96 hours of relief if stuck on well to clean, dry skin.
Simplicity: Everyone’s stuck a plaster on a wound before, right? It’s pretty much foolproof – and a CBD Patch is no different. If you’re really struggling, we’ve even included instructions on the back of the packet.
How Does It Work?
CBD patches are by no means the only way to use CBD topically. Creams, salves, and balms can also work well.
But they can be messy, and they need to be reapplied pretty often.
If you’re set on one of these options though, the good news is that CBD can still do its job.
How does CBD pass through the skin but topical products do not, you may ask?
There’s a lot of science stuff to this. Most of it comes down to the CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors we mentioned earlier. They have been found in the skin17, meaning skin is receptive to CBD and can transfer it as needed.
Our patches are transdermal – and we think this gives them the best of both worlds. By applying CBD as a topical patch on an area of pain, you’re providing runway lights for the CBD to travel down.
Thanks to its transdermal properties, the CBD is able to get to the area that needs attention. The compound doesn’t have to traipse around your whole body to figure out what exactly it should be working on. But some CBD will still make it to your bloodstream, and the rest of your body will benefit.
