Medical marijuana patients have access to a myriad of different methods and vehicles for administering medical marijuana therapy. Now, the company Cannabis Science has developed two new transdermal patches that can offer relief for fibromyalgia and diabetic neuropathy nerve pain. Transdermal patches allow cannabinoids to enter the bloodstream directly through entering the skin. Some patients prefer this method because it allows for more precise dosing, so the patient can receive specific dosages and can target the affected areas of the body. The cannabinoid most responsible for providing relief through these patches is CBD, because studies have found it effectively provides pain relief for inflammatory pain, including that associated with fibromyalgia and peripheral neuropathy, without producing any psychoactive side effects.
