How To Create Your Own Topical Cannabis

Benefits: Creating your own cannabis topical allows you to manage the dose and quantity of cannabis. You can tailor the entire product to your needs, from the fragrance to the consistency, and even the packaging, to ensure that your finished product is perfect for you and your body.

How does cannabis help? Creating a cannabis topical under the influence of the herb helps you let your guard down so you can get messy and experiment with textures and essential oil scents. Opt for a sativa to keep your mind on point and concentrated on the physicality of the luxurious task at hand.

HOW TO

  1. To begin, center yourself with a hit of cannabis.
  2. Collect your ingredients. You’ll need roughly 10 grams of cannabis, a nonstick baking sheet, parchment paper, a grinder or mortar and pestle, 1/3 cup of olive oil, 1 1/2 cups of coconut oil, a double boiler (or a makeshift one with a pot placed on top of a pot), a cheesecloth, 1/3 cup of beeswax (*vegans can use canuba or soy wax,) and essential oils of your choosing.
  3. Preheat your oven to 245ºF. Place your cannabis on a nonstick baking sheet, cover with parchment paper, and bake for 30 to 45 minutes or until golden-brown.
  4. Remove the cannabis from the oven and set it aside to cool.
  5. Add the olive oil and coconut oil in the double boiler. Stir at a low temperature for roughly 25 minutes, then add your decarboxylated ground cannabis to the oil mixture and continue stirring for another 25 minutes.
  6. Move your creation away from the flames and filter out the cannabis buds using a cheesecloth, leaving only infused oil.
  7. Combine the infused oil and the beeswax in the double boiler. Add essential oil as desired (I like to use 6–8 drops, but this is a personal decision). Cinnamon oil is spicy and seductive. Lavender is calm and soothing. Orange awakens the senses. Use your high mind: What does your body need?
  8. When everything is combined, remove from the heat. Let your body potion cool off, and apply to your body as needed. Feel the cannabis soak into your skin and begin working its nourishing and anti-inflammatory properties to ease aches and pains as your skin glows. Store the topical in a sealable jar for up to 6 months to a year.

    Cannabis has many negative side effects but yes it is true that it does have medical purposes. In fact the University of Mississippi has 5 acres of cannabis for “research”.
