Do CBD Patches Work?

CBD patches are a newer way to take CBD (cannabinoid), which traditionally has been taken in tablet or oil form.

The honest answer to the question “Do CBD patches work?” is that some people say they work well, while others say they do not seem to work very well. It is subjective and as we’ve already said, more research is needed.

Transdermal CBD Patches

Transdermal patches have been used successfully for years as a delivery system – anyone who has quit smoking or tried to would have come across nicotine patches.

There are various methods of CBD delivery.

  • Topical CBD is where a cream, salve or lotion is used to deliver CBD.
  • Oral CBD is where CBD is taken via drops of CBD oil on the tongue or a CBD spray for example
  • Transdermal CBD is delivered generally in patch-form, through the skin and into the bloodstream
  • CBD vape is the use of vaping to get CBD into your system through being absorbed by your lungs.

Both topical and transdermal CBD avoid the use of the digestive system so cut out the risk of irritating the digestive tract.
