How to Use CBD Patches: Dosage, Application

CBD patches are a convenient and effective way to get all the benefits of CBD in an easy, transdermal delivery system. But with several types of patches and dosages available, how do you know how to use CBD patches properly? This guide will cover the key steps for dosage, application, and getting the most from CBD patches.

I. Determining Your CBD Patch Dosage

An important first step is identifying the right CBD patch dosage for your needs. Factors like your body weight, prior CBD experience, and severity of symptoms should guide your dosage. Start low at 5-10mg per day and increase slowly over time until you find relief. Heavier individuals or those with more severe issues may need higher doses of 25-50mg or more. Consult your doctor if needed.

II. Prepare Skin Properly Before Application 

CBD patches work by transmitting CBD through your skin, so preparing the area properly can maximize absorption. Wash and exfoliate your skin first to remove dirt, oils, and dead cells. Apply the patch to clean, dry skin on a veinous area like the wrist, ankle, or behind the knee. Rotating sites is recommended.  

III. Apply Patch Correctly  

Remove the backing and press the patch firmly onto the skin for at least 10 seconds, ensuring full contact. The heat from your body activates the ingredients. The patch should stick within a few minutes as the adhesive activates. Apply gentle pressure as needed if the patch lifts at the edges. 

IV. Consider Duration of Use

Most CBD patches deliver dosages over 24 hours so they are designed for all-day use. Those seeking nighttime relief may opt for an 8-10 hour patch. For optimal results, apply a fresh patch daily, using a rotation of application sites. Wear each patch for the full recommended duration before removal.

V. Be Aware of Side Effects  

Some users may experience minor side effects like skin irritation where the patch is applied. This generally resolves quickly after removing the patch. Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated and start with lower dosages to assess tolerance. If you are concerned about any side effects, please feel free to ask us.

VI. Store Patches Properly

Keep unused CBD patches in original packaging at room temperature away from direct heat or sunlight to preserve potency. Do not open the pouch until ready to use. Once removed from the packaging, it's best to apply the patch immediately.

Using CBD patches properly and finding your optimal dosage takes some trial and error. Start slow, monitor your results, and adjust your application routine until you find what works for you. Adhering to these steps can help you maximize the benefits CBD patches have to offer.
