CBD, or cannabidiol, is a chemical in marijuana that does not contain THC, the psychoactive ingredient that produces a high. CBD is now commonly sold in oil, extract or pill form, or as an additive to consumer goods.
“ The CBD concentrate won’t just simply mix with the olive oil,” Brun said. “ It needs to be heated – but not too hot –and homogenized into the olive oil to make sure you are getting a consistent dose of CBD each time to take it. If you do not do that, the pure concentrate is like sap that will just sink to the bottom of the bottle of olive oil.”
But what does the research say about CBD and what happens when it is mixed in olive oil?
Though the research on CBD’s effects is still in its infancy, companies selling CBD and CBD products, nutritionists and everyday users claim it can be used to soothe ailments from anxiety to inflammation, and the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved its use in treating epilepsy.
Kyle said it is important to pair CBD with an overall healthy diet to ensure the best outcomes, and that “ olive oil is an excellent heart-healthy option to pair CBD with.”
Step 3) Mix the Salve Ingredients
If you haven’t done so already, the first step is to decarboxylate the cannabis you intend to use in this salve recipe. Or at least some of it, if you want to also use some raw material.
Salves also typically contain waxes or butters to bind the ingredients and make them semi-solid at room temperature. Beeswax is a popular option because it is readily available, easy to work with (especially when purchased in pastilles), and creates perfectly smooth results. See the ingredient list below for recommended vegan substitutions.
Steps to Make Cannabis-Infused Oil:
On the other hand, emerging studies are revealing that raw THCA and CBDA have some pretty groovy perks too. THCA is showing a promising ability to reduce inflammation, muscle spasms, arthritis, and cancer. CBDA also fights inflammation and tumor growth.
On the other hand, if you just made your cannabis oil and it is still liquified, you can do this step straight in a pot on the stove – keeping the heat as low as possible once the cannabis coconut oil is added.
Cannabis salve is stellar at relieving many ailments! First of all, coconut oil and olive oil are extremely nourishing on their own – so you’re going to get plenty of moisture from your salve to heal dry, cracked, or otherwise irritated skin. If you add a few drops of essential oils to your salve, you’ll also get the benefit of aromatherapy.
