Cannabidiol (CBD) patches are just as effective as other CBD products. But they have some advantages that oral and vaporised cannabidiol don't have. For one, these patches can target specific painful areas by applying them to your skin. Secondly, they are perfect for people who don't like the taste of CBD oil.
At CBD Supply UK, we provide a wide range of CBD patches for experienced and beginner CBD-users. This is alongside our fantastic range of CBD gummies, vapes, oils, and sprays.

What is CBD
If you're unfamiliar with CBD, it's one of the many compounds found in the cannabis plant and comes from the hemp plant. It's not to be confused with THC - the compound in marijuana that makes you "high". There are 3 types of CBD on the market and they are:
Full-spectrum: These products have many hemp plant extracts and contain trace amounts of THC.
Broad-spectrum: You'll find several cannabinoids from the cannabis plant, but with no THC.
Isolate: Only contains CBD and has no other compounds from the hemp plant. CBD Isolate is suitable for first-time users.
There are a lot of CBD patches on the market and choosing the right one can be difficult. At CBD Supply UK, we choose products based on effectiveness, quality, and safety. All our products are 3rd-party lab-tested and verified. We only sell 100% legal products and know that it works.
Everything You Need To Know
A CBD patch is perfect for people who want all the CBD goodness but dislike the oil's taste. Patches provide relief to specific areas of your body. The key benefit of using a patch is that it provides accurate doses.
To use them, all you have to do is to remove the protective film and apply them to the affected area or a discreet area on your body. Wear them under your clothes, in the shower, to the gym, just about anywhere without anyone noticing. For CBD to be effective, change the patches every day.
Patches are a perfect, low-waste way of benefiting from CBD because it's absorbed directly in your bloodstream. This means that your digestive system is less likely to break it down or process it as waste.
Because of the patches' ability to have a high absorption rate in the bloodstream, they are convenient and provide long-lasting effects.
Typical patches can actively release CBD into your bloodstream for 6- 12 hours. Some patches last up to 96 hours. Most CBD patches need to be changed once a day. But each patch is different, so check the labelling to find the right doses.
Even though a patch provides a higher absorption rate in your bloodstream, evidence suggests that it doesn't automatically mean that you have more CBD in your bloodstream.
If you're looking for the "entourage effect" - in which several cannabinoids and other compounds work in synergy supporting each of the ingredients - use a patch together with CBD oils.
Cannabidiol Patches And Pain Relief
Cannabinoids act on your endocannabinoid system in your body to block receptors for several types of pain. There is also some evidence that CBD is an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that relieves pain caused by inflammation. That's why some evidence suggests that CBD patches may alleviate isolated pain, including nerve pain.
The slow and steady release of CBD patches allows the maximum amount of CBD possible into your bloodstream. The bioavailability of CBD patches are estimated to be between 40-45% and sometimes bioavailability can be as high as 90-95%. This allows a large amount of cannabidiol extract to enter your bloodstream compared to any other types of CBD products.
Ingesting CBD orally means that it enters through your digestive system first. Ingestion isn't ideal because your body either uses it, breaks it down, or excretes a large amount of it as waste. With patches, you bypass the digestive system, meaning your body uses most of the transdermal CBD instead of wasting it.
CBD patches are Legal
CBD patches are legal in the UK if manufacturers get the necessary authorisation from the Food Standards Agency (FSA). Transdermal patches are 100% legal because they come from an industrial hemp strain. Plus, they have less than 0.2% THC present which is right on par with UK law.
There is evidence that CBD patches has some health benefits
Please note, CBD is a relatively new product. All of the below is based on research that is new. The below is a summary of our own investigation but should not be taken as medical fact or advice. Please consult your doctor before consuming CBD.
CBD patches are similar to a nicotine patch. Over a time between 12-24 hours, CBD is consistently released through your skin into your bloodstream. They take anywhere from 60 minutes to 4 hours to start working. For example, applying the paste for joint pains could take about 45 minutes to provide relief but this depends on your body.
Transdermal CBD is designed to stay on your skin for several days. This means you benefit from a slow and steady dose directly targeting the affected area on your body. You won't have to remember to keep taking the CBD oil or apply lotion every day.
New evidence suggests that CBD may work well in alleviating various types of pain.
Researches are also investigating the effects of CBD on anxiety and stress and research from the US National Library of Medicine highlights strong evidence that CBD has the potential to treat anxiety disorders.
CBD is non-intoxicating
You won't feel "high" because CBD contains no THC. Still, CBD has positive effects and are different for everybody. Some could have better moods, while others have more energy. Some would even describe it as how it doesn't make you feel. Like, you don't have that anxiety in the morning or that headache you've had for days on end. The point is, each person's ailments are different, and the World Health Organization says using CBD is effective, is non-intoxicating, and is not addictive.
Why Not Just Use Capsules?
Any CBD product works well as long as you use it for it's intended purpose. Patches have benefits that capsules (and other CBD products) can't compete with. For one, bioavailability in CBD patches is higher than in capsules and other CBD products.
The higher the bioavailability of a product, the higher the amounts of CBD in your bloodstream. Capsules have a low bioavailability because it first enters into your digestive system which breaks the CBD down.
Even though CBD products are released into your body over time, any CBD product with a higher bioavailability is superior.
CBD patches won't make you sleepy
Cannabidiol have some scientific evidence behind it, showing to have a positive effect on sleeping disorders and insomnia caused by anxiety and stress. CBD works on the underlying issues causing sleepless nights but research is yet to be done on whether this natural alternative to pharmaceuticals results in sleepiness during the day.
Can I Use More Than One Patch?
If you're a beginner, we recommend you start with 15mg broad-spectrum CBD patches. But, if you find that this dosage doesn't help, you can increase the dose per patch after a week.
Still, if you feel like you'd need more than one patch, you can stick multiple patches on your body. At CBD Supply UK, we don't recommend using more than 5 patches within a 24-hour timeframe. Instead, apply a higher dose CBD patch.
Before applying more than 1 patch to your body, please consult your GP.
Where to stick a CBD patch
You can place your patch on any location on your body. The best places to stick them are your ankles, shoulders, the back of your neck, upper arms and your wrists too. If you're looking for relief from difficult-to-treat pain, the best place to stick them is directly on the painful area.
