Palmetto Harmony Product Delivery Methods
When considering which Palmetto Harmony product will best suit your circumstances, it is important to understand the different delivery methods and how they are absorbed into the body. Each delivery method (oral ingestion, via transdermal patch, or topically) has its own benefits, so choosing the correct one will be essential.
The first delivery method is oral delivery. This is relevant to the Palmetto Harmony tincture and the Palmetto Spectrum capsules. When cannabinoids are taken by mouth and processed by the digestive system, they will be absorbed and make their way towards the liver. At the liver, the cytochrome P450 enzymes will begin the process of metabolizing those cannabinoids. This is where potential for drug interaction comes into play. Cannabidiol temporarily prevents these particular enzymes from metabolizing other compounds.
First Method, Metabolized-
Once metabolized, the cannabinoids will then be directed to both the bloodstream and to be stored in your body’s fat cells. Meanwhile, the cannabinoids that are directed to the bloodstream will begin circulating through the system. This will stimulate the body’s endocannabinoid receptors. The remainder that is stored in the fat cells will continue accumulating with regular use. Your body will then be able to routinely pull from these accumulations, which is the desired result from prolonged oral delivery.
The second delivery method that you need to know is through the Palmetto Harmony Transdermal Patches. When these patches are applied directly to the skin, they release the cannabinoids directly into the bloodstream. The amount delivered is controlled, distributing the cannabinoids between intervals over the course of 12 hours. This method bypasses the digestive system and releases directly into the bloodstream. Therefore, the cannabinoids are able to stimulate the endocannabinoid system more rapidly. Additionally, this also helps to avoid the first pass effect, increasing the bioavailability of the cannabinoids.
The third and final delivery method is by applying topically to the skin. This applies to the Cannacense, Holy Cannacense, and Psorian Cream. These topicals are intended to be applied directly to the target area. Topicals cause the cannabinoids to absorb mainly into the surface layer of the skin. This allows the target area to be directly affected by the cannabinoids, but modest amounts will make it into the bloodstream. This will not lead to stimulation of the endocannabinoid system for a systemic effect.
When you know these three different methods, it is easier to determine your ideal product! Oral ingestion is great for long term effects, transdermal patches are great for rapid and powerful effects, and topicals are great for application to a particular area as needed.
