About a month ago I received a box in my PO Box that contained one CBD Topical Pain Patch for me to try. At first, I thought that it was kind of crazy to receive just one patch, After all, how much could it possibly help? I gave it a try. Below is my post on what I thought of the patch. The ability if any to control my pain, and just what I thought of the CBD Topical Pain Patch.
Testing One, Two, Three
I have to be honest here, I was a little apprehensive to try a patch to help relieve my pain. Living with Degenerative Disc Disease for about 11 years now has been difficult. I have had 5 surgeries and not too many medications can help me relax enough or for that fact, take away the pain. So to receive just one patch, I was not expecting anything great. But let me tell you, I was wrong. Yes, I said it. I was wrong. Let me tell you just why I was wrong.
I decided to try the patch on Tuesday, May 2, 2017. I thought that I wouldn’t feel anything. But I was still willing to give it a try. For those of you who don’t know, CBD is Cannabidiol. CBD is a key ingredient in cannabis or marijuana. The effect of CBD is that it does not cause the “high” feeling and is supposed to give relief to those who use it for many medical conditions.
Trying Out The Product
Like I said, I put the patch on that Tuesday morning. I decided to try it out this day in case I had some weird reaction. My husband is off on Tuesdays so he would be home with me. At first, when I put the patch on, I didn’t feel anything different. But it was about an hour into wearing it, was when I noticed that I felt some relief. I didn’t notice it at first, almost like it was subtle or I wasn’t paying attention to it.
The relief was minimal but it was there. I could move a little easier and a little less stiff than I had an hour before. About 2 1/2 to 3 hours is when I really started to notice the decrease in pain and stiffness. I was able to bend over and pick things up without stabbing pain. The pain had not gone away completely but it had decreased enough that I was able to relax and enjoy life a little more.
Information On The Patch
The patch is very easy to use. It is small, about 2 inches by 2 inches, with a small round reservoir in the middle of the patch. That is where the medication is at. It comes with an alcohol wipe to clean the skin first before placing the patch on the skin. It is suggested to get the patch as close to the area of pain as possible. I put it on my lower left side. Once the skin is clean, place the patch on your skin rubbing the patch to adhere to the skin.
According to the website, it states that the patch should last 96 hours to give pain relief. This is the only thing that I found not to be true. I would say in total, I was able to get about 48-50 hours of relief. Even though it was not the full amount of what they said, it still helped a lot to relieve my pain.
According to the website, the topical patches are:
Made with all natural ingredients
Contain no chemical enhancers
Pain relieving formula separated from adhesive for better performance
Hypoallergenic and water-resistant
Latex-free pharmaceutical grade adhesive and hypoallergenic foam backer.
Delivers relief for up to 96 hours
2×2 Square patch with rounded corners to reduce snagging on clothing
48mg of certified pure CBD per patch
Tan colored patch for discrete use
My Honest Opinion
After being apprehensive about trying a CBD patch, I was definitely glad that I did give it a try. The Premier Biomedical Pain Management Solutions have done a good thing with this patch. My only downfall for it would be that it didn’t last as long as I would have liked but that could be me as a person and not the medication. I have been known to not have other medications work for me when they work well for others or vice versa. My body is sensitive to medications and the fact that I did get 48 hours out of the patch was a welcoming relief. I was so excited about it that I actually went out and purchased more of the patches. I believe that the CBD Topical Pain Patches work well and should be given a try for all sorts of ailments. Please see the website here for a list of medical conditions it can help.
I will be purchasing more of these soon. As the relief was greater than most things that I have used. I am hoping that I can get longer relief with using it more often. Time will tell. But I do believe that if you have some pain that nothing is giving you relief from, these patches may be the way for you to go. The price per patch is kind of steep at $20 a patch. But if you use it and get 96 hours of relief, you should only have to buy about 5 a month, not too bad.
Try the CBD Topical Pain patch and you might be surprised the relief that you get. You do not get a “high” feeling from it and the only thing that I felt was relief from constant pain. If you are interested in checking out the website or wanting to purchase some of the patches for yourself, please find it here. If anything, you may get some relief and that is better than no relief.
