Another excellent Marijuana health product derivative that can be made is Cannabis Salve. Cannabis Salve is a topically applied medicated balm that is a perfect vehicle to deliver the desired cannabinoids into our bodies. This is especially great for patients who are treated using marijuana who suffer back pains, rashes and dry skin. This product is infused with THC, but you can surely use isolates in this recipe to make either a THC Salve or a CBD Salve, it’s up to you! Another excellent thing about this Cannabis Salve recipe is the infusion of it is so versatile as well. You can use whatever type of oil you prefer, cannabutter or even tincture, Whatever you have available is ok to use!
Cannabis Salve is similar to a Cannabis ointment, but it comes in a firmer and thicker texture perfect for skin applications and soothes dry and irritated skin. Going for the full spectrum cannabinoids with this one is highly recommendable so you can take advantage of all the sub compounds and terpenes in Marijuana and no need to worry as this won’t get you too high. This may deliver the relaxing feeling but our skin is not as effective in delivering the psychoactive compound to our brain as fast as eating edibles and smoking weed does. So, what are we waiting for? Let’s get this going!
