Could Your Next Pain Medication Be a CBD Patch?

August 16, 2019 15:00:01

As the different methods through which CBD can be delivered continue to evolve, CBD patches are set to make their mark as well. CBD is widely credited with having analgesic, anti-inflammatory and other effects related to pain management. Could CBD pain patches therefore be the next big thing in pain management?

Why CBD Pain Patches May Catch On

One of the reasons why CBD patches may captivate consumers is that the effects of the compound can be noticed sooner when compared to other methods of administration. For example, when CBD is taken orally, one may have to wait for an hour or more before they can notice the cannabinoid kicking in. A patch can give faster results because the CBD is absorbed directly into the bloodstream, so one can get pain relief sooner.

Secondly, CBD patches, like other kinds of therapeutic patches, are easier to administer. It is possible for a manufacturer to design CBD patches that slowly release their contents throughout the day. This can make the patches attractive because someone doesn’t have to disrupt their busy day in order to take their CBD medication. Once the patch is in place, you forget all about it until the next day when it is time to replace it with a fresh one. Compare this convenience with having to pop capsules every few hours throughout the day!

Precautions to Take

While CBD patches may provide a convenient way to get your CBD medication for any number of ailments, especially pain, which you want to treat, it is important to pay attention to a number of precautions when selecting these products.

First, pay attention to the purity of the CBD used. Since the compound will be absorbed into your bloodstream directly, you don’t want a patch with CBD containing contaminants that can enter your bloodstream. The product labels usually stipulate the purity, such as 99 percent CBD, contained therein. Aim for the highest purity possible.

Another factor you should look into is the way the CBD was extracted. The best, but costliest extraction method is through the use of carbon dioxide. This method doesn’t alter the chemical composition of the CBD, so you will enjoy the therapeutic benefits of this compound. Some manufacturers use chemical solvents to extract CBD from hemp in order to cut costs. While the resultant product will be more affordable, its therapeutic properties will be compromised by the harsh chemicals used to extract the CBD. You may therefore be better off opting for patches containing CBD which was extracted using CO2.

Experts believe that even industry players like Nabis Holdings Inc. (CSE: NAB) (OTC: NABIF) (FRA: 71P) and Neutra Corp. (OTCQB: NTRR) have no idea how far innovators will go as they design novel or improved CBD delivery methods, so buyers have to do their own research on each product before making a purchasing decision.
