I don’t understand how the balms and patches work for pain
Answer - HelloMD Customer Service Admin
Transdermal cannabis products (such as patches) are formulated with specific carrier substances that allow its cannabinoids to penetrate the bloodstream, giving you global relief rather than a localized effect.
The THC in most topicals is not designed to reach the bloodstream and give you a psychoactive effect. Instead, THC-rich topicals are preferred for treating acute pain from bangs and bruises, whereas CBD-leaning topicals target pain due to inflammation.
