Are there any side effects to using the patch?
There have been no reported adverse side effects to the use of our patch or its components. Our foam patch is a relatively new hypoallergenic material that is gaining widespread use in the medical community. We use only natural, certified organic, non-GMO materials in our products, especially in the CBD, carrier oils, enhancers and fragrances. However, should you develop a rash, swelling, itching, or redness due to use of the patch or any product, discontinue use immediately and consult your healthcare provider.
I have a latex allergy. Can I use your patch?
Yes. Our patch is constructed on a hypoallergenic foam substrate that is intended for use on patients with latex allergies. However, you should make sure you are not allergic to any of the natural oils and extracts contained in our product. Should you develop a rash, swelling, itching, or redness due to use of the patch or any product, discontinue use immediately and consult your healthcare provider.
Can I leave the patch on longer than 96 hours?
The patch is designed to deliver the CDB mixture gradually over 96 hours. Although there is no harm in leaving the patch on for longer periods of time, it is not recommended, and provides no further benefit.
How do I apply the patch?
The patch should be applied to clean, dry, unbroken skin as close as possible to where pain is most intense. Clean the area with the alcohol swab included with your patch and allow the skin to dry. Remove the protective strip from the adhesive side of the patch and carefully place the patch on the target area. Gently press the patch to ensure maximum adhesion. Do not remove the patch for showering or bathing, as this will greatly lessen the effectiveness. Removal and reapplication of a patch greatly compromises its adhesion. Patch works best when applied to a less hairy area of skin.

Can I wear more than one patch at a time?
It is recommended that you wear only one or two patches (e.g., back or neck; one on each foot or leg, etc.). Usually patients experience relief with one or two patches. Wearing additional patches has not been shown to be harmful, but may not provide additional benefit.
Can I use the roll-on while I am wearing a patch?
Absolutely. Patients often use a patch for back pain, and the roll-on for localized pain elsewhere, like an arthritic knuckle, or near the patch to augment its effects and kick-start relief.
How should I store the patch?
Patches should be stored in a cool, dry area. The oils in the patches are designed to liquefy at skin temperatures and migrate out of the reservoir onto the skin. Higher temperatures will not degrade the effectiveness of the pain relieving oils, however, they may cause the oils to seep out of the reservoir pad and onto the adhesive of the foam patch, degrading its ability to adhere to the skin for the intended duration of 96 hours.
Is my Patch filled completely?
Yes. Each patch is precisely measured and the ingredients may not always reach to the edge of the Patch reservoir. As you wear the patch, the oils will extend to the outer edges.
