When it comes to treating pain, especially chronic pain, there are several options available to you.  There are topical creams, oils, and salves; there are over-the-counter options like Tylenol or Motrin; or there are prescription pain medications.  However, all of these aforementioned options come with their own risks of some very negative side effects.  Topical formulas can irritate your skin and most of the product is wasted with what’s left on your hands after application.  Habitual use of over-the-counter pain medications increase the risk of stomach and liver problem.  And, perhaps the worst of all, habitual use of prescription drugs can cause you to become chemically dependent and addicted to them, which is a severe health risk.  Hemp extract, however, is the safest and most effective way to combat pain without running the risk of any harmful side effects.



The best way to combat pain is through transdermal hemp pain patches. This is because you are not ingesting anything. You may wonder how effective a hemp extract pain patch can be, but remarkably, transdermal delivery of is more effective and this is because of what is referred to as theFirst Pass Effect.  When you take hemp oil, or any medicine for that matter, it first passes through vital organs prior to entering the circulatory system where it gets absorbed into the blood stream and starts to work.  Some compounds of the hemp extract become lost as it travels through the gastrointestinal system and the liver. What is great about transdermal hemp pain patches is that the delivery bypasses your liver, lungs and stomach where the active molecules of the hemp extract (cannabinoids) get filtered and broken down.  Because the hemp extract isn’t first being processed through these vital organs, your body receives 100% of the hemp oil benefits.



There are several transdermal hemp pain patches on the market claiming to be the best, but we at Specktra know that we are the clear winner.  Let’s take a look at how we match up with one of our main competitors, The Good Patch.



Round 1: The Company Core – Us vs. Them


At Specktra, we believe in being transparent with our customers, especially in a saturated market full of questionable practices. Each of our products are go through strict testing measures in third-party laboratories to ensure the highest quality, consistency and purity of CBD products that are made with only clean, natural and domestically grown organic ingredients. Our lab results are posted with each product for your review prior to purchase to ensure you’re getting a trustworthy product.



The Good Patch also boasts that their products are tested in third-party laboratories, but you won’t find their lab results posted with their products.  Also, a review of the background of the hemp plants used for The Good Patch products reveals that they used organically grown industrial hemp, but they do not claim that the plants are grown domestically.  Where are they coming from?  What is the quality? We’d say these are some things you’d need to know.



Round 1 Winner: Specktra.



Round 2: What’s Inside


Our transdermal hemp pain patch contains only 8 ingredients: 60mg of phytocannabinoid-rich full-spectrum hemp extract; aloe vera; organic sunflower lecithin; organic oleic acid; organic apricot kernel oil; organic palm oil; organic shea butter; and organic safflower oil. What makes our transdermal hemp pain patch is listed clearly for you to see along with the benefits of each essential oil included AND, we bet you can pronounce them all. 



Looking at The Good Patch’s transdermal hemp pain patch, we couldn’t decipher what was in it because we couldn’t read the back of the package.  We were able to make out the word “menthol” though.  No amount of clicking was going to enlarge that picture.  What we did find is that they let you know what’s not in it: latex, parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, artificial dyes and colors, so that’s good. What else we found was the amount of hemp extract in their patch; 15mg.  15 measly milligrams is not going to pack the same punch as 60mg, so…



Round 2 Winner: Specktra.



Round 3: The Relief


We’ll make this quick.  Our transdermal hemp pain patch contains 60mg of hemp extract which is enough for 96 hours of relief! That’s 4 days!  Theirs? 15mg of hemp extract for 12 hours of relief.  It’s really a no brainer.



Round 3 Winner: Specktra.



Round 4: Customer Satisfaction and Service


Considering that their patch has such a low dose of hemp extract and short relief period, it’s not surprising that they have some 1-star reviews.  They’re even at the top. Hide those! All in all though, their customer reviews give them an overall rating of a very respectable 4.5 stars.  That, however, is not as respectable as our 4.9 stars.  Our customers have an overwhelming number of 5-star reviews with a sprinkle of 4-star reviews mixed in, but absolutely nothing lower.



We stand by our products and that is why if you aren’t completely satisfied for any reason, we’ll give you 100% of your money back within 30 days of purchase.  We are happy to speak with you regarding your experience shopping our site and using our products anytime.  We want you to be able to connect with us, so we have posted our phone number, email addresses, and physical address so you can contact us in a variety of ways. We also accept returns on unopened and unused items.  Don’t worry about shipping being refunded because we don’t charge you for it anyway, as long as you’re in the United States.



If you try The Good Patch and it doesn’t do anything for you, too bad. You opened it and used it so you’re stuck with it and they keep your money.  They will however take returns of unopened and unused items, but you only have 14 days to let them know and the only way to request a refund is through their website.



Round 4 Winner: Specktra.



As you can see, we knock it out of the park when it comes to practices, safety, effectiveness, and customer satisfaction.  It isn’t hard to see why our transdermal hemp pain patches are the best on the market.  Grab one, or several,here now!
