CBD Patches UK
Do you suffer from knee pain, back pain, or chronic pain issues, such as arthritis?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a popular natural remedy used to treat such ailments. From inhaling vaporised CBD (e-liquid) to ingesting it orally via edibles and oils, there are several ways it can be taken. However, CBD patches are a wonderful way to enjoy the benefits of CBD with minimal fuss, especially if you’re someone who is always on the go.
As a UK leading brand, we supply only the best CBD patches in the UK, here at Peak Organics, and want to assure you that we follow all the correct regulation procedures to meet stringent safety and quality standards.
How do CBD patches work?
CBD patches work in a similar way to nicotine patches, only they contain CBD and deliver this to the local area around the patch.
The transdermal patch can be placed discreetly on the skin, under the clothes, making it difficult to notice. It has a permeable release membrane and an adhesive that holds it onto your skin, and your body heat activates the CBD patch.
From here, a small amount of CBD is released through your skin and absorbed into the bloodstream.
Studies show that CBD patches allow the cannabinoid to bypass the digestive system, meaning you get 100% of the CBD. This method is also more consistent than topical CBD balms, lotions, and rubs that would usually need reapplying multiple times throughout the day.
The benefits of CBD patches
Though we are not legally allowed to make any medical claims about CBD – and more human studies are required – the initial findings suggest that these patches may be an effective pain reliever for those who experience chronic pain, muscular injuries, and inflammation.
Here are just some of the key advantages of using a CBD patch:
- Rapid delivery of CBD into the body – a CBD patch provides an efficient method of delivering CBD, bypassing the organs that filter external compounds and chemicals. This means more CBD enters your bloodstream and you should start feeling the effects in a matter of minutes after attaching the patch to your skin.
- Long-lasting – patches will usually remain on the skin for 24-hours and provide a steady stream of relief for symptoms. No need to worry about applying them more than once a day.
- No high sensation – CBD patches don’t contain THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), so do NOT get you high.
- Pain management – transdermal delivery reduces pain and other symptoms typically associated with arthritis. CBD patches can also be used to manage chronic and acute pain from issues such as MS, cancer, and anxiety.
- Aid sleep – if you suffer from insomnia, or experience difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep when you finally drift off, transdermal CBD patches may help you to sleep better at night. They provide a steady yet precise dose of CBD into the bloodstream over a 24-hour period.

CBD Patches FAQs
What are CBD patches good for?
CBD patches can help with sleep. As the CBD builds up throughout the day, when it comes to bedtime, there is enough CBD in your bloodstream to help you feel relaxed and get a good night’s sleep.
Wearing a transdermal patch can help people to improve their mental health and well-being. The CBD balances their hormones and stabilises their mood, offering relief from anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder.
Others use CBD patches to alleviate chronic pain conditions, such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, and multiple sclerosis (MS). They provide relief throughout the entire body and can help target specific areas of pain – ideal for sports injuries, migraines, and headaches.
CBD patches can also reduce inflammation and strengthen your immune system, helping you to fight disease and illness. And many believe that wearing a patch can improve muscular spasms, epilepsy, nausea, and sexual performance, too.
How long do CBD patches take to work?
Unlike other cannabidiol products, CBD patches are placed directly onto the skin. The effects are not immediately felt, and it usually takes up to an hour for the CBD to enter your bloodstream.
However, CBD doesn’t enter the digestive or respiratory system, so won’t get broken down by other parts of the body, such as your stomach, liver, or lungs. That means you get the full concentrated dosage.
The time it takes for CBD patches to work can also depend on your diet. For instance, if you have a chronic pain condition or an auto-immune disease, the food you eat can have a significant impact on how much your condition affects your daily life.
Exercising regularly is a brilliant way to improve your health, and wearing a discreet CBD patch will allow you to exercise properly. But we don’t advise getting the transdermal patch wet, so be sure to place it sticky side up while you shower, bathe, or swim.
Do CBD patches have any side effects?
On the whole, CBD won’t get you high and you won’t experience any psychoactive effects.
Headaches, drowsiness, bowel movements, loss of appetite, are all potential side effects of using CBD. However, CBD patches are carefully optimised and provide a standardised dose.
If you experience any of the above, it’s likely due to taking too much CBD, and the best way to rectify this is to reduce your CBD intake. Try sticking to wearing just one patch a day.
Over a long period of time, you may find that the patches irritate you – especially if you use them on the same part of your skin.
Whilst it needs to be applied to a smooth area of skin, we suggest using the patch in different places (i.e. on your wrists, ankles, inner arms, shoulders, back of your neck, etc.) to eliminate the risk of skin irritation. It’s also worth having a few days off from wearing CBD patches and moisturising the affected area.
