How often do you take the time to focus on your overall well-being? Maybe you are taking steps every day to eat the right foods, drink enough water, get enough sleep, take time to meditate (de-stress), and on and on. …But most people aren’t…
Even if you are doing everything “right,” you might still need a little help. Our Comfort Patch has a big job: to provide natural well-being support.
How does it do that? From the carefully curated ingredients that contain naturally occurring phytocannabinoids that support the endocannabinoid system. *Record player screeches*
What the heck does that mean?
We get it, explaining our Comfort Patch involves a lot of crazy words that many people do not understand. Words like endocannabinoid system (we have a great blog that explains this, right here) and other words like cannabidiol (popularly known as CBD). We also have a blog for that one, right here.
So, we thought we would just break down the individual ingredients in our Comfort Patch to lay out all the benefits you can get from this easy-to-use patch.
Soothing White Willow Bark Extract
White Willow Bark Extract is in our Comfort Patch to soothe aches and aid in discomfort. It has been used traditionally for thousands of years as an anti-inflammatory, and analgesic (acting to relieve aches).
Many experts compare its benefits to that of aspirin, but scientific evidence hasn’t been able to confirm just how closely they compare.
What scientific evidence does support is the fact of White Willow Bark’s efficacy when it comes to chronic lower back and joint issues. It’s widely used in sports performance and weight loss products.
Anti-Inflammatory Benefits of Cat’s Claw Extract
Cat’s Claw Extract gets its name from its thorns, which resemble a cat’s claws. Intertwining its way through the Amazon rainforest (and other tropical areas of Central and South America) you can find this woody vine growing wild.
Studies have found that Cat’s Claw may boost your immune system, may relieve stiff joints, and help with inflammation.
Packed with those amazing benefits, we made sure it was included in our Comfort Patch.
Hemp (Cannabis sativa) CBD Oil
Hemp is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant, known for its ability to soothe aches and aid in discomfort.
You might be wondering: 💭 Can I get high from CBD Oil? 💭 Hemp contains less than 0.3% THC (tetrahydrocannabinol, which is what produces the high), so you can rest assured that there are no psychoactive effects.
The Power of Water-Soluble Hemp (Cannabis sativa) CBD Powder
Water-Soluble Hemp (Cannabis sativa) CBD Powder is in our Comfort Patch for the same purposes as Hemp CBD Oil, to soothe muscles and aches. But the cool thing about water-soluble CBD is that your body is able to absorb it easily.
Many traditional CBD products don’t absorb well (some say as little as 4% of the needed CBD makes it to the bloodstream–more details on that below).
Water-soluble CBD is fully available and utilized by the body, aka more bang for your buck!
What in the world is CoQ10?
CoQ10 is otherwise known as Coenzyme Q10 and is naturally present in your body, with the highest levels in the heart, liver, kidneys, and pancreas.
This compound is important as it helps generate energy in our cells. As we age, CoQ10 production tends to decrease. Since it has a crucial role to serve as an antioxidant and to protect cells from oxidative damage, having this in our Comfort patch is a win.
Some studies have found it helps with tissue oxygenation, athletic performance, and migraines.
Black Pepper Extract (Spice Up Your Life)
Black Pepper is one of the most commonly used spices in the world. They are made by grinding peppercorns (dried berries from the vine Piper nigrum) and have a sharp and mildly spicy flavor when added to dishes. It is known as the “King of Spices.”
But that’s not why it’s in our Comfort Patch. It spices up the patch with lots of benefits: high in antioxidants, anti-inflammatory properties, boosts absorption of nutrients, and more.
Transdermal Absorption for the Greatest Comfort Patch Benefits
When it comes to CBD, there are all sorts of ways you can buy it: pills, drops, lotions, IV, and our favorite, a patch (Transdermal Absorption). The problem is, not all forms are created equal.
We worked really hard to find the best ingredients for our Comfort Patch and to make sure they hit all of our product philosophy markers: safe, effective, and natural, so we don’t want them to go to waste.
With your skin being the largest organ on your body, you have a lot of surface area for our patch. Transdermal CBD Absorption works by being placed on your skin (from a patch) and from there it delivers a slower more sustained delivery of CBD into your body.
Other forms (like pills or IV intake) might mean you only get a small amount into your bloodstream (like less than 10%) or the effects are short lived because of the rapid levels input.
We wanted to make an efficient and effective option to help you stay calm, cool, and collected (without the high).
Are you in need of some Comfort?
