Mary’s Medicinal has been creating medical marijuana products since 2013. This innovative company has bough forth many “Firsts” to the industry.
The new transdermal patch is just another example.
These discreet patches are to be placed directly on the skin. Designed in a way that would slowly release THC, CBD or a combination of the two, into the blood stream.
This method of cannabinoid delivery allows for a longer and slower release.
For best results, its recommended that patches are placed in venous skin areas.
Or where the skin is thinner and veins are closer to skins surface.
Unlike topical creams that can only go through one to two layers of skin.
Mary’s transdermals are able to penetrate through the entire epidermis.
Topical creams are recommended for localized pain relief. For example a topical THC/CBD cream can relive irritation and pain on shoulders or knees.
The patches capability to entire the bloodstream makes it an alternative form of systematic full body delivery.
There are several key advantages to this approach.
- Controlled dosage
- Prolonged period of relief
- Discrete and ease of use
- Clothing can be placed directly on top of patch
Patch vs edibles
Edibles have long be considered as the best alternative to smoking or vaping.
The safety or long term effects of Inhaling cannabis products is still under some debate.
Making edibles an easy and only choice for medical marijuana users. But the down side of edibles has long been known.
Edibles are hard to dose and the effects can be delayed, sometimes over an hour after ingestion.
This patch can produce noticeable effects in as soon as 15 to 30 minutes.
