    Is anyone doing this? Found an article on Leafly that describes the process pretty well. can pick up everything i need, except the medicine, on amazon.

    i think after my next harvest, i might give it a try.

    Would love to hear your experiences, recipes and success stories.

    thanks

    and since something like bengay, tiger balm or icyhot have that warming, soothing feeling, i want to add the ingredients to the DIY cream.

    the following oils are needed for this:
    • Peppermint oil: natural painkiller (analgesic); muscle relaxant; cooling properties; stimulates blood circulation
    • Eucalyptus oil: natural analgesic; anti-inflammatory; vasodilator (opens blood veins to improve circulation)
    • Clove oil: natural anti-inflammatory agent; stimulates blood circulation
    • Ginger oil: natural anti-inflammatory agent; analgesic
    • Black Pepper oil: warming, stimulating, improves circulation

    And hell, i was stoned off my ass when i created this thread. the recipe only calls for 7-10 grams of cannabis, i am pretty sure i can handle that before another harvest, LOL :bigjoint:

    so far the ingredients total up to $75 on amazon and that sounds outrageous, but the amounts are large enough that i can make this many, many times times.

    After reading up even more on homemade warming rubs it might be better to go with the following for the warming agent rather than black pepper oil which did not get good reviews

    Camphor oil
    menthol oil
    Wintergreen oil
    Cayenne Pepper


    i am going to read a bit more and come up with a unique THC/CBD infused muscle warming recipe.


    I've got OCD when I start researching something, soon after i am making it or building it, lol...

    ok, there is a butt load of research i can do on essential oils, which i will do, but with some very quick research i have the prototype recipe. :bigjoint:

    Salve Ingredients

    • 7-10 grams of ground, dried cannabis
    • 1 ½ cups of coconut oil
    • 1/3 cup olive oil
    • 1/3 cup beeswax
    • 1 baking sheet
    • 1 saucepan (or double boiler)
    • 1 jar
    • 1 cheesecloth
    • 50 drops Peppermint oil
    • 50 drops Eucalyptus oil
    • 20 drops Camphor oil
    • 20 drops Menthol oil
    • 2 T Cayenne Pepper
    • 20 drops Copaiba oil
    • 20 drops Juniper Berry oil

    Ingredients for thinning to lotion


    • 1 cup Aloe Vera gel
    • 100 drops Almond oil
    • 2 T Shea Butter or Cocoa Butter


    we obviously all understand the benefits of decarb'd cannabis

    THC(pain relief)
    CBD(anti-inflammatory)

    the many oils and pepper in this will also play roles

    Peppermint oil - natural painkiller (analgesic); muscle relaxant; cooling properties; stimulates blood circulation
    Eucalyptus oil - natural analgesic; anti-inflammatory; vasodilator (opens blood veins to improve circulation)
    Camphor oil - natural solution for pain relief, anti-inflammatory; fights infection, and boosts skin health, warming properties
    Menthol oil - natural antiseptic,pain relief, anti-inflammatory, cooling then warming properties
    Copaiba oil - natural pain relief, warming properties
    Juniper Berry oil - natural warmth and muscle soothing
    Almond oil - skin health and used for thinning in this recipe
    Cayenne Pepper - natural solution for pain relief, fights infection, and boosts skin health, warming properties



    just gotta pull the trigger at amazon and all ingredients will on the way. i already have the weed, cayenne pepper, coconut oil and olive oil :blsmoke:
