The topical application of CBD is becoming popular among people, as it is found to be useful for providing localized relief. There is a wide range of topical products made from cannabidiol (CBD), available in the market that can be applied externally to your skin. These products can relieve pain, inflammation, and many other skin conditions. The latest addition to the range of topical CBD products is transdermal patches. CBD transdermal patches are similar to your nicotine patches. This product is designed to deliver CBD into the bloodstream for controlling different health conditions.

How CBD Transdermal Patches Work?

The working of transdermal patches is almost similar to other topical products. These products can be directly applied to the skin for getting the benefits of CBD. Transdermal patches can deliver CBD and other compounds present in them into your bloodstream. This can be beneficial for getting relief from different health conditions.

CBD transdermal patches can be a better option when compared to other topical products. The effects of creams, lotions, and other CBD topical products will wear off in a few hours after the CBD is absorbed by the body. But transdermal patches can provide long-lasting effects, as they will stick to your skin for a long time.

However, the delivery of transdermal patches is very slow and not all of the cannabidiol present in them will be absorbed by the body. Hence, these products usually contain permeation enhancers for boosting the permeability of the skin so that more CBD will be absorbed into the bloodstream.
