If you are a medical marijuana patient, you may be wondering how transdermal patches work. These patches allow you to get your daily dose of THC through the skin with a patch. Therefore, you will not have to consume edibles, vape, or smoke cannabis to get your daily dose of medication. However, many patients are amazed and perplexed at how these patches allow the compound to absorb through the skin. Here’s how transdermal patches from your local marijuana dispensary work:
- Transdermal patches can produce long-lasting, systemic effects
Transdermal patches can be a great way to get all-day or all-night pain relief, and some patches are designed to last even longer. Not only that, but they can also help to relieve anxiety and have benefits for other health problems.
- Transdermal patches can deliver sizable doses of medication
Transdermal patches can act as an extended-release mechanism, which can allow you to get substantial doses of THC over time. In fact, the doses that you receive can be just as large as if you were smoking, vaping, or ingesting cannabis.
- Transdermal patches can be worn anywhere
One advantage of transdermal administration is that you do not have to stop what you’re doing to smoke or vape. This makes this delivery method exceptionally discreet, and they’re a great choice for situations where smoking or vaping are not options.
- Transdermal patches can contain cannabinoids other than THC
Some transdermal patches contain sizable doses of CBD, which can help to modulate the immune system, provide pain relief, reduce nausea, have a calming effect on patients with anxiety, and more. In addition, some transdermal patches can deliver a dose of CBN, CBG, and THCA. These compounds can have additional benefits for some patients. For instance, CBN can be excellent for patients with insomnia and anxiety.
