Indica Remedi Transdermal Patch Review
XtaSeay and I couldn’t have had more different reactions to the Indica Remedi Transdermal Patch.
“I experienced most of the effects where I had applied the patches,” XtaSeay said. “It was a cool, tingly, almost watery feeling, accompanied by a very light head buzz.”
On the other hand, I experienced an intense and extremely uncomfortable burning sensation shortly after applying the patch to the lower section of the right half of my ribcage. It was like putting on icy hot then hopping a hot shower (note: do not do this… I had to learn the hard way when I was younger).
I waited it out for over an hour. I kept telling myself it would pass in favor of a relaxing, 12-hour head and body “high.”
90-some minutes in, the burning sensation only continued to intensify.
I tried moving the patch to the underside of my left wrist, assuming that if I applied it directly over a vein it would enter my bloodstream faster and the burning might dissipate.
But alas, it felt like the worst bout of carpal tunnel I had ever experienced.
Even though the patch wasn’t ideal for me, it didn’t visibly irritate my skin. There was no redness or rash in the areas I had placed the patch.
Meanwhile, XtaSeay was happy as can be, reapplying two patches across various points of his body.
“I had both of them on my lower abdomen, my neck, my forehead, my shoulder, my wrist,” XtaSeay said. “I did experience some discomfort after placing it on my lower back for awhile, but it wasn’t too bad – I just reapplied it somewhere else.”
Bug & XtaSeay’s Review

Although I had a very unpleasant experience with the patches, I would still recommend other patients give it a try, based on how well they worked for XtaSeay.
Everyone’s endocannabinoid system is different. Just because a product doesn’t work for one patient doesn’t mean it won’t work for another, and vice versa.
In fact, it might not have been the cannabis I had a negative reaction to. It very well could’ve been the menthol in the patches, as I have a track record for having very sensitive skin (For example, I can’t use certain cleaning and hair products without breaking out into a rash).

“The Indica Remedi Transdermal patches produced very subtle cognitive effects, especially compared to vaporizing cannabis,” XtaSeay said. “I enjoyed experience and would recommend these patches to anyone who is looking to alleviate pain in a certain area.”
XtaSeay also said he spoke with another patient who experiences the 12-hour effects from the patches throughout his entire body, with a cognitive effects just as intense as vaporizing flower or concentrates.
Again, no two endocannabinoid systems are the same. XtaSeay and I both recommend giving them a try and seeing how they affect you.
