MÜV Transdermal Patch: Extended-Release Relief
With the growing acceptance of cannabis usage for symptom management, innovation is the word that could come to mind when it comes to cannabis products. Since cannabis has become more and more destigmatized, innovation has pushed the ancient medicine to the next level, and made the consumption significantly more discreet. Cannabis topicals are a great example of this.
Traditional cannabis topicals are infused with THC or CBD distillate – but they only go so deep. You see, THC, associated with pain relief, and CBD, a known anti-inflammatory, are fat-soluble compounds. This means that when traditional topicals are applied, the cannabinoids dissipate in the upper levels of the dermis, giving localized pain relief where it’s needed most. For full-body relief with a topical, transdermal formulation becomes necessary.
EnCaps™ – Revolutionizing Cannabis Topicals
For patients that require this permeated and systemic (full-body) relief from cannabinoids, MÜV EnCaps is the ideal solution.
EnCaps encapsulated technology takes the beneficial cannabinoids and encases them in a micelle shell. This shell renders THC and CBD water-soluble instead of fat-soluble.
Think of the shell as a shuttle – the cannabinoids hop on the shuttle to bypass the fatty upper layers of the dermis. The shuttle doors open in the watery bloodstream, unleashing the anti-inflammatory and/or analgesic (pain relieving) compounds for distribution throughout the body for systemic relief.
This technology was utilized to formulate the MÜV 72-Hour Transdermal Patch, a revolutionary option for Florida medical cannabis patients.
MÜV Transdermal Patch: Revolutionizing Cannabis
MÜV 72-Hour Transdermal Patch does what traditional topicals (or inhalation products, at that!) cannot: provides controlled, slow-release effects, with an onset time of 15 minutes. Just 0.24 mg of cannabinoids of the 20 mg (total) patch are released per hour, known as a microdose, for a total of 72 hours of relief.
This patch is unique in that its effects can be customized based on where it is placed. Patients can apply the patch to a thin-skinned, highly venous area for systemic absorption – think the underside of your wrist, top of your foot, or even inner thighs for these full body effects. Placing the patch on areas such as the shoulder, elbow or knees results in more localized pain relief of that area.
But back to microdosing: no matter the location the patch is applied, the low dose stays the same. There is minimal psychoactivity with MÜV Transdermal Patch – just enough for someone completely new to cannabis to feel the cerebral effects. One of the most unique features of the patch is, after removing, effects subside within 45 minutes, making it cannabis with an off button. The ability to try the effects of formulations, yet be able to remove them if wished, makes MÜV Transdermal Patch the ideal introductory product for newcomers to the Florida medical marijuana program.
Patients can remove the patch and place it on the piece of plastic from the package, and reapply when needed. If the patch does not adhere as well as the original application, use medical tape to secure in place.
Customizing with Formulations and Stacking
Symptom management varies from person to person – for that reason, variety in medical cannabis products is key. The MÜV Transdermal Patch was formulated in THC, CBD and 1:1 THC:CBD ratios to address a range of symptoms and concerns. MÜV Patients are encouraged to try the three formulations to see what suits their symptom management best.
- THC has a strong legacy of providing pain relief, with the euphoria commonly associated with cannabis. MÜV patients have reported relief from pain associated with herniated discs, endometriosis, and even menstrual cramps. Drowsiness is another reported effect of THC, making it a potential aid for insomnia.
- Patients that seek relief from mood disorders, inflammation, and pain, CBD is an ideal solution. CBD has also been shown to be an effective anti-epileptic, as well as an aid in soothing persons with autism.
- A 1:1 ratio of THC:CBD combines the synergistic effects of both cannabinoids. THC and CBD work in tandem to potentially address a wide variety of patient concerns, such as pain, mood disorders, or inflammation.
Now, let’s say MÜV Transdermal Patch is effective throughout the day, until breakthrough pain occurs. While it may not be as intense of pain with the patch - it’s still pain. More potent relief can be achieved by stacking, or adding, another low-dose cannabis product in addition to the patch.
Adding a dose of another MÜV Product may accelerate the relief sought. MÜV Evolve Transdermal Gel is a great smoke-free option that fits easily into pockets or purse. Think of Evolve Gel as the macrodose to MÜV Patch’s microdose – it dispenses 15 mg of cannabinoids topically, again with EnCaps encapsulated technology, with an onset time of 15 minutes. The topical bypasses the upper layers of skin to enter the bloodstream, and is ideal for menstrual cramps, endometriosis and migraines, according to MÜV Patients.
For those who are not opposed to inhalation, using a vaporizer or whole flower is a fast-acting addition to your regimen, with immediate onset of effects. With the range of strains available from MÜV Püre, G Pen, All-in-One, and MÜV Flower strains, there have never been more options for customizing your medical cannabis routine. Be sure to start low and go slow when adding a vape to a medical cannabis routine; it’s recommended to start with one dose, gauge symptoms in roughly 20 minutes, and dose again if needed. Note that cerebral effects will be enhanced with the use of inhalation products.
Beginning and customizing a medical cannabis routine has never been easier thanks to the innovation taking place in the growing cannabis industry, making room for revolutionary products such as MÜV 72-Hour Transdermal Patch. Be sure to discuss with your Medtender the best formulation for your routine and ideal stacking products, or contact MÜV Patient Care with any questions.
