New CBD Patches Combat Nerve Pain And Fibromyalgia

New CBD Patches Combat Nerve Pain and Fibromyalgia
Although cannabis is still considered to have no medical use by the Drug Enforcement Administration, pharmaceutical companies continue to create medications that prove its efficacy against countless ailments. Cannabis Science, Inc. has developed two new pain relief patches that are specifically for patients with Diabetic Neuropathy nerve pain and Fibromyalgia.
Fibromyalgia is a medical condition in which the individual experiences chronic widespread pain and a higher, more painful response to pressure. Neuropathy damages or spreads disease to nerves and can have various painful effects depending on which nerves are affected. Now patients facing either of these ailments might find relief with the transdermal CBD patches created by Cannabis Science.
The transdermal pads are made with high potency cannabinoid (CBD) extract. The extract is released in a controlled fashion, which enters into the bloodstream through a medicated adhesive patch that is put on the skin. The CBD extract enters through the skin and into the central nervous system, which is how patients receive pain relief.
