There are various ways people can benefit from Cannabidiol (CBD). The non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in hemp, which is praised worldwide for its health benefits and positive impact on our well-being. This is adequately proven by the popularity and success-stories of our hemp oils and cosmetics. Though CBD comes in more forms than just orally consumed raw hemp extracts, drops of CBD oil and skincare cosmetics.
Another way to actively benefit from CBD’s health benefits, is by using it transdermally. This is a term used to describe ‘the route of administration wherein active ingredients are delivered across the skin for systemic distribution’, according to Wikipedia. In other words, this means that the ‘medicine’ - or supplement in this case - is administered topically on the skin; and then gets absorbed by the body over a certain amount of time. Using transdermal topical patches, for example.
Benefits of transdermal CBD
The big advantage to transdermal patches, is that they provide a controlled delivery of the active ingredient into the patient. Sometimes, this is realized by a membrane on the patch covering a reservoir with the substance. Though in the case of Dutchnaturals CBD Topical Patches, the controlled release relies on the body’s heat to melt thin layers of the cannabinoid embedded in the adhesive. This ensures that the active ingredient on the patch is not absorbed at once, but will slowly release itself through the skin into your body. Providing you with anywhere from 12 to 36 hours of relief.
Though it’s not as easy as it sounds, to produce an adhesive that can actually deliver CBD through the skin. As the molecules should be small enough to cross some of the skin’s heavy barriers which protect your body from external threats, for example. Thankfully, our efforts in research and development on this matter were not wasted. As you will experience yourself, using the new and improved Dutchnaturals topical patches with 15mg and 30mg CBD per piece.
