MCC Dispensary is proud to be one of the first dispensaries in Illinois to offer Mary’s Medicinal Transdermal Patches.
For those who are not familiar with transdermal delivery, Mary’s Medicinals has established themselves as a trusted name in providing relief with medical cannabis through an alternative delivery method. Transdermal method of administration provides the convenience of a topical patch, yet also allows for high bio-availability of cannabinoids. Transdermal medications are absorbed through the skin or mucosal membranes instead of by oral or inhalation routes. Transdermal delivery is intended to have an effect in areas of the body away from the site of application.
Transdermal administration is an excellent method to use when a patient is unable to administer medical cannabis through traditional means including oral or inhalation. Transdermal medical cannabis patches also allow cannabinoids to bypass metabolization by the liver.
As a guide, here are the ratios of milligrams of cannabinoids in patches when compared to inhalation and edibles.
1 Transdermal mg = 8 Smoke/Edible mg
1 Patch contains 10mg of cannabinoids = 80 mg smoke/edible dose
Mary’s offers 5 different types of medicinal patches each containing 10mg of cannabinoids which are listed below.
- 1:1 CBD:THC
- THC Sativa
- THC Indica
In addition to patches, Mary’s Medicinals and MCC Dispensary also offer Transdermal Gel Pens which are available in CBD, THC Indica, and THC Sativa.
