    Seriously. Does that PureRatios photo REALLY say “aminals” on their label? Also curious as to the quality of the thc high you get with the patches.

    • Chris

      I’ve never noticed that. I have used the PureRatios patches and they work wonders. But also #aminals

  • Talira K.

    Oh, and it would be great to get an actual price on these.

    • They never seem to do that on any of these products

  • Neldine Ludwigson

    Tried the Mary’s patches. Completely wasted $40 on two. They don’t stick for beans, plus, after about 2 hours of sticking them back on over and over again, they’re completely wiped out. Cannot recommend them to anyone. Washington state is absolutely the worst for legal marijuana, plus it’s destroyed the medical side. Thanks greedy politicians.

    Love Mary’s Patches. My pain went away in 15 minutes and stayed away all day long.

  • Raymond Allan

    Mary’s patches work quite well then applied to the top of the foot just below the ankle (on top of the main artery). Be careful pulling your sock up as not to loosen the patch. Lasts 8 hours this way due to the pores of the skin opening farther which increases the effect. Great stealth as the telltale smell of burning cannabis is not present.
    Takes effect within 1/2 hr
    Portland prices are $12 to $18 ea with tax included
    Kind of expensive but when you want continuous relief all day without having to re-toke they cant be beat

  • Carol Mccannon

    I was told that I can cut the Manna patch. Is this true?

  • Carol Mccannon

    I was told by a sales person at Northeast Alternatives that the Manna patches can be cut to use smaller doses. Is this true?
