I’ve been hunting for transdermal patches for a while now, but with 1:1 being so high in demand relative to stock, it’s been nearly impossible finding them. Now that I’ve tried one, I’m thrilled that it’s regular stock on our shelves.
I cut my patch into four squares. I’ll cut my next one into six, making this highly economical for even a homeostatic goal (daily wear). The activation time read 60 minutes, but my effects came on so quickly that I initially wrote them off as placebo - only about 10-15 minutes, with unquestionable effects by 20 minutes. It is worth noting that I am relatively small (125 lb) with a fast metabolism and a moderate tolerance.
The first effects I felt were gentle rolling waves of ease and relaxation. Noticeable, but subtle enough to be brushed off. Over time, however, the sensations intensified and a pleasant body high made itself known. I didn’t feel couch-locked, just floaty and a bit dreamy. At times it was in the background an at others I basically couldn’t focus on anything else.
These effects lasted from when I applied the patch at 9pm until I went to bed around 1am. When I woke up, the effects were still present, but muted. It was easy to go about my day feeling relatively unhindered. It wasn’t until the effects faded around 9pm that I realized I hadn’t felt any issues that would make me need to smoke. I didn’t feel high (except for mild haziness), I just felt fine. I do recommend starting slow as I also tried applying half of the patch rather than a quarter, and the experience was very unpleasant until I removed part of the patch.
I would recommend this for people with chronic issues ranging from pain to mood disorders, who smoke frequently to treat their ailments. I recommend applying it at night so that the stronger effects happen outside work and responsibilities, and so they can be slept through if the person doesn’t enjoy being high.
Overall, a great experience and medical too!
