Cannabis creams as topical applications are making a comeback because they are known to bring relief from pain. You can use the cream as a regular moisturiser or as novel way to stay stoned through the skin. Since cannabis cream is made from natural and organic ingredients they are more effective for hydrating as well as stoning. Cannabis cream is more easily absorbed into the skin as it contains water and so is absorbed faster. With other lotions the skin does not breathe easily as they are oil based and greasy.
- 1 cup pre-prepared cannabis coconut oil
- 1 cup water
- 5 to 6 ice cubes
- 1 oz. bee wax
- Essential oil, tincture, herbal effusions as preferred
- 6 fresh marijuana leaves
- Measuring jug
- Heavy bottomed pan
- Glass bowl
- Electric grinder
- Hand held blender
- Jar for storing
Pour coconut oil in a glass bowl. Place the glass bowl inside a pan filled with some water. Place the pan with the glass bowl on a stove. Heat pan on a low temperature of about 100°F to 150°F. The water in the pan will heat up the oil. The oil is not decarboxylated so do not raise the heat as it will decarb. If you use decarboxylated oil then be very careful at it can get you stoned just as if you had eaten cannabis. While the oil is heating take ice and place in a mixer. Measure out exactly one cup of water and add to ice along with the fresh marijuana leaves. Grind these together in the electric grinder. Once mixed fully strain the mixture and keep aside. Once the cannabis coconut oil is heated, place the bee wax in the glass bowl. Bee wax is a natural product that has healing properties. The bee wax will melt within a few minutes. Be careful not to burn the oils with high temperatures. Remove from heat and mix in any essential oils or tinctures you would like to use. Tincture helps to increase the shelf life of the cream. Allow the oil and melted bee wax to cool to room temperature. Once cool then begin the blending process. Take a handheld blender in one hand and in the other the cupful of marijuana juice. Pour the juice slowly into the bowl and blend with the oil. As you blend the heated oil mixture with the cannabis juice it will thicken into creamy consistency. Store it in glass jars. The cream will last 3 weeks outside the fridge and for about three months when refrigerated.
While the cream is made of totally organic ingredients it can be highly potent if you use cannabis that has been decarboxylated. Since this cream is easier to harmonise into the skin it goes right into the blood stream. So do cut down your intake of cannabis by 80% if you use the oil for stoning. Watch how applying the decarbed cream affects you before you apply more of it or take more cannabis by other means. Check out the video below for a step by step walk through of these directions.
