More people are turning to cannabis pain patches for long-lasting relief. Cannabis pain patches work by delivering a slow release of cannabinoids through the skin and into your bloodstream.
Cannabis pain patches can be purchased from a variety of places, marketed for the relief of painful ailments like fibromyalgia and diabetic neuropathy.
When you inhale or ingest cannabis, the effects can present themselves all at once. Cannabis patches, however, deliver a more targeted dose slowly over the whole day.
This slow release means that the effects of cannabis patches can be lighter than smoking or eating Cannabis edibles, which may be beneficial for those hoping to avoid inebriation during the workday.
Cannabis patches are probably the most discreet consumption method on the market today. You simply apply the patch to a part of your body, like your arm or wrist. Depending on how long the patch lasts, there’s no need to administer another dose for quite some time.
Does Cannabis Patches get you high?
No. A THC patch won’t get you high because your body absorbs the cannabinoid slowly over a number of hours rather than all at once.
This is great news for those who need THC’s medicinal effects without the intense psychoactive high.
You can purchase cannabis transdermals from a local dispensary.
Mary’s Medicinals is one popular brand, with 10 mg and 20 mg patches in a variety of different cannabinoid blends. They can be found in multiple states including California, Washington and Colorado.
