CBD Patches UK
This exciting new addition to our product range offers a highly-effective alternative to orally-ingested CBD products.
What are CBD Patches UK?
CBD Patches, otherwise known as 'Transdermal CBD patches' allow for CBD to be gradually absorbed through the skin. Initially, this may not seem like an effective way to absorb CBD, however, transdermal bioavailability is actually much higher than with oral products.
What is Bioavailability?
Bioavailability is the extent to which a substance can be absorbed and successfully utilised by the body.
When products such as CBD Oil and CBD capsules are ingested directly, only approximately 10-15% of the CBD tends to be absorbed. This can be improved by using the sub-lingual method (holding the drops under the tongue), or by ingesting CBD with a high-fat meal. Furthermore, the entourage effect from all of the other cannabinoids, terpenes and plant compounds mean these products still work very well. However, bioavailabilty will still remain comparatively low.
Water-soluble CBD overcomes poor bioavailabilty by offering CBD and other cannabinoids in a formula which easier for the body to absorb. Our BIO-MAX product, for example, can be up to 10x more effective than oil when ingested.
Bio-availability of CBD Patches is estimated to be around 40-45%, meaning that approximately 30% more CBD will make it into the bloodstream than orally ingested CBD products. Making them a highly effective alternative.
What are the key benefits of CBD patches?
On top of increased efficacy from superior bioavailability, cannabidiol patches are very convenient and discreet. One simply needs to apply the patch to the skin, then the CBD benefits can be experienced for 24-36 hours. The CBD is also absorbed gradually, offering a more balanced and long-lasting experience. Finally, patches can be applied to a specific area of skin for targeted relief.
