How long can /should I leave it on for?

Each person & scenario differs. For ingredient absorption combined with support - it is best to have it on overnight, or for a minimum of 12-24 hrs to fully reap the benefits of our formulation
For extreme levels of pain/ inflammation we would recommend if you applied the tape earlier in the day, to remove and reapply some new strips for renewed ingredient absorption overnight.
General tape wear can last as long as 3-5 days, we generally recommend removing it at around the 3-4 day mark, as the adhesive can become harder to remove after several showers and extended adherence.

Can I wear it in water?

Yes - in fact, particularly with our tape DO NOT attempt to remove when wet, because it is medical grade adhesive, infused with ingredients and it is designed to stay on when wet there is a higher chance of the material separating from the adhesive and leaving access residue. It may peel at the edges from sweat or when wet, but unless fully coming off itself, try to avoid peeling it until dried.

Why do I feel the "cooling" on some areas more than others?

The only ingredient you're going to feel in general is the Menthol. The CBD, vitamins & minerals infused work "silently".
A few reasons you may feel the Menthol on some areas more than others can be either or a combination of the following: skin receptors being more sensitive in some places, the tissue depth of an area or if you are warming up, sweating or wet, activating the menthol more.
Joint areas, as well as the neck, back and spinal areas are more sensitive and have a thinner layer of skin and less tissue to penetrate, so these areas can be more sensitive to feeling/sensation than deeper muscular areas.
Everyone's skin receptors and neural response differ slightly, but the product is working the same in all areas.

How does kinesiology tape work/ help?

In general, Kinesiology tape stabilizes the injured area by adhering to the skin and applying pressure to the tissues the tape is wrapped around.
Kinesiology tape is uniquely helpful because while providing support, it is very flexible, both in directions it can be applied and how it moves with the body so it allows the connective tissue surrounding the affected muscle or tendon to move along with the body, which can help redirect/ dissipate pain by disrupting pain pathways, and assist with drainage of inflammation on injured areas.

How does this differ from other kinesiology tape and/or brands
