Mary’s patches are heat, sweat and water resistant so they will stay in place during active use. Because Mary’s patches are made with distillate (other than THCa), the cannabis oil is not visible, slick or likely to cause skin irritation.
Mary’s Patches are typically different than competing varieties. By applying the Transdermal Patches on areas of the body with thin skin and a lot of veins, the cannabis can permeate into the bloodstream for a full body effect similar to smoking or eating edibles. Mary’s patches, which onset in 15-30 minutes and have a duration of between 8 and 12 hours. The effect is an even, slow time-release. Some may feel the patch effects for longer than average, and it’s suggested to leave patches on for approximately 24 hours for the first few uses to gauge effects. We recommend the inside of the wrist, top of the foot or back of the knee for patch placement. Thin skin with a lot of veins is the goal, so that the cannabis oil can transdermally absorb into an advantageous area for systemic. Patches tend to not effect at their full potential if placed on areas not of this nature. For anxiety or a sore back, it’s best to apply the patch on the inner wrist, etc. It’s important that the area of skin under the patch is cleaned prior to application – either with alcohol or soap and water.
Patches can be cut down and micro-dosed without activation so that partials can be saved for later use. When cutting down patches, the dosage will proportionately align, but the 8-12 hour time-frame remains. Our packaging is heat/light resistant, thus, a great place to store unused patches.
Time-release technology – slow and steady, when it hits the bloodstream is a function of skin type and where patch is applied on the body. The patch release is activated when applied to something w/o the formulation.
An intoxicating effect is possible with Mary’s transdermal products. The indica and sativa patches will more than likely cause a “high” feeling. The indica and sativa dominances are created with terpene blends. All of Mary’s patches have a unique and consistent terpene blend that’s been created to best synergize with the featured cannabinoid profile. Our terpenes are naturally derived from non-cannabis botanicals.
To help separate one quality of weed from another, the cannabis community created its own special scale (surprise!). Here are the terms you need to know and what they mean.
A CBD patch is a Band-aid™-like piece of plastic infused with the cannabinoid CBD. To get relief from chronic issues like pain and anxiety, you simply apply the CBD patch to a venous part of your body (that’s veins, not the planet), like your ankle, your arm, or the inside of your wrist.
Your body heat activates the patch and causes it to release a small amount of THC through your skin and into your bloodstream. Think of it like an IV without the pesky needles.
CBD essentially acts as a “chaperone” of sorts to the THC found in marijuana. CBD keeps the THC from running amok through your body where it can cause the previously mentioned negative side effects, along with a whole host of others.
One of the only commonly reported issues is a tendency to experience dry mouth after taking CBD.
Edibles are a bit better, but there’s still work involved. You’ve got to mix up the recipe, sometimes cook or bake it, and then eat it. That’s a lot of steps to get to the CBD relief you need.
One of the most appealing things about CBD patches is that you can use them to treat a wide variety of medical issues. Here’s what the CBD in CBD patches can do:
