CBD Transdermal Patches
These transdermal patches are great at treating localised pain. Or if you experience pain if you're sitting for long periods of time. Equally people can experience muscle tension pain daily from long distance driving. Or even in jobs where you're required to sit or stand - for long periods of time. Tension can occur if you don't regularly stretch or exercise. Also bad posture plays as a contributing factor. So simply apply a patch to clean the area of your skin to experience the benefits from this powerful plant!
Targetted Pain Relief
With transdermal patches, you’re getting localised treatment - as the patch works by absorbing onto the area its placed on. The key active ingredients of CBD and other topical ingredients are then transferred from the patch > to the localised area that’s in need of treatment. Its's very common for people to experience discomfort on their lower back when they have jobs that either involve them driving for a long period of times - equally standing for a long period of times. Simply down to bad posture - we can create stress, which sometimes develops in 'knots', which you can seek treatment by visiting a professional masseuse. By massaging key area you can release tension - which majority of the time people have in their lower back. Using transdermal CBD patches - are not only convenient but very discreet. You'll probably forget you even have it on! We can assure you that patches are not a gimmick and we have further information on CBD patches and their associated health benefits on our Patches collection.
Many people are aware of the antismoking patches introduced in 1991, more than they are of the transdermal patches in general. For the majority of us, they are just stickers. You probably didn’t care about them, until you recently discovered that you could actually take your CBD in the form of CBD patches, right?
Read on to get a better understanding of CBD transdermal patches and how they work.
What are Transdermal Patches and How do they work?
For starters; Transdermal Delivery System involves the administration of a medical drug or any substance into the body via the skin. This method applies to oils, ointments, spray and patches, among many other things that can be applied on the surface of the skin.
Transdermal patches enable the release of small amounts of the substance into the bloodstream over a long period of time. Besides CBD, other substances delivered this way include pain relievers, nicotine, hormones, and drugs to treat angina and motion sickness.
It’s an interesting fact to think about how old this method is, and yet it’s still relevant in today’s modern society. It’s an ancient healing practice, dating as far back as 3000BC. It’s recorded in Babylonian and Egyptian medicine (Magner, 2005; Geller, 2010).
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, popularly known as CBD is a naturally occurring chemical compound extracted from the Cannabis sativa plant. CBD and THC are the most popular cannabinoids to date. This is because they are similar to the cannabinoids produced in the human body. As a result, these phytocannabinoids can influence the human body in the same manner natural cannabinoids would.
Although CBD is extracted from the intoxicating cannabis plant, it’s important to note that this cannabinoid on its own has got no psychoactive effects. The cannabinoid responsible for inducing a “high” is delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Cannacres ensures that its CBD transdermal patch contains less than 0.2% of THC.
Higher concentrations of THC will induce a “high.” This is why the UK only legalises CBD products containing 0.2% of THC or less.
These CBD Transdermal Patches are produced under Good Manufacturing Practices. The GMP board is responsible for making sure that all manufacturers abide by the rules and regulations which ensure that all their products are of the best quality, and genuinely effective for their claimed use. While the specifics of the GMP rules and regulations might slightly differ depending on the country or state, they all focus on minimising and preventing harm to the end-user.
Thus with Cannacares’ GMP certified CBD Transdermal Patches, you can be confident that they meet they are safe and effective. You don’t have to worry about common mistakes such as leakages, contamination, or lower permeability.
Where does Cannacares source their raw materials?
There are thousands of eCommerce sites loaded with information about CBD products, from oils, tablets, and patches — all for the wrong and right reasons. Today, most manufacturers are simply after the profits, and as a result, they tend to compromise on the quality and safety of their products.
Fortunately, Cannacares really cares. What makes Cannacares CBD patches special, besides being produced in a country with one of the finest producers of cannabis, is that they carefully evaluate their CBD sources, from farmers, producers and manufacturers. It’s only those who will go an extra mile just to meet their finest requirements that Cannacres would work with.
NB: It should be noted that our CBD transdermal patch is not a medical drug. It does not induce a “high” and should not be used for recreational purposes. Customers trying our product for the first time should always consult a doctor for advice.

Why We Love It
If you are looking for a reason to put a patch on, you need to look at the following advantages to help you affirm your decision.
- They are absorbed at a constant, steady rate
The Cannacares transdermal patches deliver the dosage in at a constant rate for 24 hours, allowing you to feel the effects of CBD over an extended period of time.
- They are easy to use
Unlike tablets or oils which you have to take several times a day, the CBD patches can be taken three times per day. Even a caregiver can easily administer it and continue with their other business for the whole day. Further, since they provide a visual cue that the medication has been administered, there is no risk of taking too much.
- Might calm an upset stomach
CBD patches have been shown to help individuals with an upset stomach. Even people who cannot withstand the taste of other swallowed CBD products, have a convenient getaway through CBD patches. They can still eat their delicious meals without the interference of some CBD component.
- They have an increased bioavailability
Bioavailability refers to the percentage of a substance your body can absorb at any given moment. Unlike other methods whereby CBD has to go through the digestive system and risk being degraded, the CBD in transdermal patches can easily and quickly travel to the bloodstream soon after the patch is administered.
- Easy dosage control
The difficulty of taking any medication is usually associated with the proper monitoring and controlling of a dosage. Fortunately, this problem cannot be encountered with the use of transdermal patches. These adhesives use CBD isolates and are already packed with precise doses. Moreover, it has a mechanism that controls how much of the drug gets released – thereby allowing patients to receive the CBD gradually.
- No psychoactive effects
CBD transdermal patches are specifically designed to lessen tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) levels and maximise CBD. Since this product has no THC content [the psychoactive component], you can be confident that these medicinal adhesives will not induce a “high.”
- Quick and discreet application
These patches can conveniently adhere to different parts of the body — and even those that are out of sight. They can also be easily brought anywhere without raising any eyebrows since anyone can assume them as regular pain relief patches. Furthermore, they do not have a cannabis scent; thus, no one will notice, and you won’t have trouble in drug tests. This allows for quick, hassle-free, and discreet medication, even when on the go.
- Applied on any body part
You get to choose where to place the patch on your body, unlike other supplements that have definite ways or administration(sublingual or oral), the Cannacares transdermal patches are flexible.
The following advantages apply to CBD in general:
- Users experience better sleep quality.

Possible negative effects/Reactions
When using patches as means of CBD administration into the system, there is a small price to pay.
- Slow onset
When compared to smoked or vaporised cannabis which takes effect within 10 to 15 minutes after inhalation, patches take twice as long. The comforting part is that unlike other methods of administration, the patches actually last longer, approximately 8 to 12 hours. In fact, Cannacares transdermal patches last up to 24 hours, and you don’t need to carry some to work.
- Possible drug interactions
When on prescription drugs, utmost caution must be taken before dosing on CBD to avoid the potential adverse effects of a drug interaction. Furthermore, since Cannabidiol inhibits the liver’s ability to break down other pharmaceutical drugs, these medications may be rendered ineffective when taken with CBD in general.
- There is the occurrence of Skin Reactions
For individuals with sensitive skin, it’s possible that skin irritations and reactions may appear due to a CBD patch. The skin can be damaged during patch removal, or sweat ducts may be blocked etc.
NB: These reactions have a fair incident rate in users. It is advisable to seek the help of a medical practitioner before using CBD transdermal patches.
