Are you a new cannabis user? If so, transdermal patches are your best choice as they allow you to get your daily dose of cannabinoids without the need for joints, blunts, and bongs. These patches are infused with cannabinoid THC, and they’re applied directly to your skin.
Since transdermal patches don’t have a high psychoactive effect, they’re ideal for individuals who want relief from chronic issues such as pain and anxiety. To get you started, here are some dos and don’ts when using transdermal patches for the first time.
- Place your THC patch on areas with the most optimal access to blood vessels
Transdermal patches work by absorbing THC through your skin and into your bloodstream. Therefore, for general body relief, it’s wise to place it on your wrist, lower abdominal area, or shoulder blade for maximum absorption.
- Read the patch’s instructions
Read your transdermal directions carefully to avoid making mistakes that may affect your patches’ potency. You can also discuss this with your provider at your marijuana dispensary to get the most out of your patches.
- Clean the area
Our skin comes into contact with a lot of unseen bacteria and contaminants in the environment. Hence, before wearing your patch, clean the area with a moist cloth or paper towel.
- Wear more than one patch
As a beginner, you probably don’t know how much THC you need for ultimate relief. It’s wise to start with one patch and build your way up to achieve your desired effect. You can also cut your THC patch in half if the dosage is too high for you.
- Take your THC patch out of its protective wrapper unless you’re using it
To get long-lasting relief, only unwrap your THC patch when you want to apply it.
