Research shows that transdermal delivery is the most effective method of delivering cannabis to the body as it enters the blood stream directly. When smoked or eaten, patients may lose up to 70 percent of the cannabis consumed via air vaporization, metabolism and stomach acid, which is inefficient and makes accurate dosing difficult. Mary’s Nutritionals transdermal products are so effective that the dosing of a standard 10mg patch may be equivalent to that of an 80mg edible. With nearly 100 percent bioavailability, Mary’s products offer a reliable consistent dosage.

Like all medicines, an individual’s dosage is based on many factors such as age, body composition, diagnosis, etc. One patch is a typical dose for most patients, although some prefer to cut a patch into halves or even quarters, while others may use more than one patch to attain relief.
