Furthermore, 75-year old Joe said: “My doctor said I should have been dead by now. I played 9 holes of golf today.”
The company is based in Colorado and was established in 2013. It quickly gained a positive reputation for its high-quality CBD laden topical gel pens, transdermal patches, and a range of other products designed to go on your body rather than in it.

Medicinal Benefits of Mary’s Medicinals
The brand name claims that its products provide an ‘effective dosing’ that is 10 times better than anything on the market. This claim comes from the fact that the company’s transdermal products avoid getting metabolized by the liver and broken down by stomach acid. They achieve this because they are delivered straight to the bloodstream after being absorbed into the skin.
the company’s 2” x 2” transdermal patches are award-winning innovations. all you have to do is apply a patch to any ‘venous part of the skin,’ and it is effective for the entire day or night. they come in 10mg cbd, cbn, thc, and cbd: thc (50:50 ratio) form, or 20mg thc indica or sativa.
The humble transdermal patch has been around for almost 40 years, but its use in the cannabis field is relatively new. You should feel the benefits within half an hour although we found that the patches didn’t offer any benefits beyond 6 hours; well below the timeline claimed on the brand name’s website.

Mary’s Medicinals innovative topical and transdermal products have won many awards, including the Cannabis Business Awards 2014 Invention of the Year and Best New Product at the prestigious High Times Cannabis Cup. We couldn’t agree more – transdermal products with precise dosing and maximum effectiveness are here to stay.
In a word, yes. You will start feeling the effects about 25 minutes after you slap it on. The effects are quite subtle at first, but also very enduring – not 8 to 10 hours like Mary’s website claims, but a solid 4 to 6 hours of extended relief. The THC “high” is as potent as a double-dose cannabutter edible, but lasts longer, and the CBD pain-relieving properties are out of this world.
If you’re at all curious about exploring these products in more-depth, you should definitely check out the Mary’s Medicinals website, where you can see how the founders are dedicated to natural pain-killing techniques and cutting-edge cannabis medicine. Their slogan, “For us, it’s simply black and white” is reflected in their simple philosophy and in their elegant, old-timey black and white web pages that hark back to 100 years ago.
In many ways, a medicated adhesive patch is the ideal way to ingest cannabis. Most importantly, it releases the cannabinoids in a constant, controlled manner. This time-release property is a perfect complement to the medicine’s analgesic effects, and it may be the most convenient way to take your medication ever – stick one and done.
Both a nagging ache in my shoulder, and a lifelong knee pain simply disappeared. I had suffered for years, and gotten used to the soreness, so it was a pleasant surprise to get some relief I didn’t bargain for. These effects wear off about 4 or 5 hours after applying the patch, but you can then light up a bowl and keep the medicine flowing. Seriously, a joint or a vape pen hit are exquisite after your patch starts to wear off. The 20 mg. THC patch was designed primarily for recreational users, and it will keep you comfortably medicated for half the day. Our test of the Sativa patch proved to be the perfect focus for daytime use, more of a natural pick-me-up – Mary’s non-drowsy formula, if you will.
While this proprietary line of medicinal patches is spreading quickly through the cannabis community, and putting Mary’s Medicinals on the map, the company has a number of equally revolutionary products on the market.
“I’ve been enduring chronic neurogenic pain for many, many years. I tried some of your patches and they really worked. Better than morphine, methadone, anything.” –Kelly, 45
So far, we have to reserve judgment on Mary’s Medicinals CBD hemp oil products. We simply were not able to ascertain the 3 rd party lab information about the products from the website. However, these products have good distribution at stores in legal medical and recreational marijuana states. So, breaking from protocol, we can forgive them for not having labs readily available because they are expecting you will buy a product at a store in a legal state and then see for yourself how psychoactive it is. Only, for this product, that doesn’t work because it’s one of the non-psychoactive products. You will just have to trust that it contains the CBD levels stated. For the record, the company has invested in expensive lab machines including Ultra-High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (UHPLC) testing equipment and they are expanding their labs’ capabilities. This is all well and good for marijuana products where you can know what you got by getting high, but it doesn’t work so well for CBD products. You need to see those labs to know if there’s CBD in it. However, since we have not found complaints about marijuana products, we will assume for now that the Remedy product contains the stated level of cannabinoids.
This patch is a marvel. It is made with industrial hemp, low THC, and delivers 10 mg of hemp extract. At least one of our social media friends have found the patch to be active and effective. The patch is said to be effective for up to 12 hours. It can bring relief from anxiety and tension for a full day, all of your waking hours essentially.
Description of Mary’s Medicinals CBD Oil
Mary’s has a subsidiary called Mary’s Nutritionals. Mary’s Nutritionals appears to deal mainly in hemp products with less than 0.3% THC; therefore, theoretically, these can ship all over the US. Remedy Oil is included under this banner so you might be able to get it even if you live in a state which does not have liberal medical marijuana laws. CBD hemp oil drops can hypothetically be sold in all states but I haven’t yet seen that claim made on either website, Mary’s Medicinals, or Mary’s Nutritionals. However, we would say the risk is low of facing prosecution for having a CBD hemp oil product.
Our Rating: A, excellent. Should you buy this product, yes or no? Yes. Once we receive 3 rd party labs, we will up the rating to an A+.
Unlike the other hemp companies we have reviewed so far, Mary’s Medicinals sells marijuana products as well as CBD products. Apparently, ‘Mary’ doesn’t refer to a founder named Mary but is instead an everyman term to describe those seeking natural healing. Mary’s pioneered a product called the Transdermal Cannabis Patch. As we understand it, this is a form of weed patch containing THC and other cannabinoids. It releases therapeutic substances into the body over a span of up to 12 hours. They do not appear to display 3 rd party labs on their website, but if most of their products get you high, there’s no need really. When you’re high, you know at least it has the THC in it, so you don’t have to worry about labs so much. We will focus our review on their Remedy oil product. This is one of their products that has little or no psychoactive effect. However, like the other products, Mary’s Medicinals only sell it in states which have legalized medicinal marijuana laws in effect and in practice. However, you can purchase it online from the subsidiary, Mary’s Nutritionals.
This is the real gem for sure. You can get it with a 1:1 ratio of THC to CBD. It could provide pain relief for eight to twelve hours. We know of no other delivery system this advanced. At least one Reddit user has verified that they feel this delivery system is working when they put it on. One user said it took two hours to work. Mary’s Medicinals says the patch takes about 20 minutes to kick in. In any case, this is an incredibly interesting way to get your THC and/or CBD.
