In a 2007 study, cannabinoids alleviated symptoms of psoriasis by inhibiting the buildup of dead skin cells, which is a direct cause of psoriasis. (“Cannabinoids inhibit human keratinocyte proliferation through a non-CB1/CB2 mechanism and have a potential therapeutic value in the treatment of psoriasis,” by Jonathan D. Wilkinson and Elizabeth M. Williamson, J. Dermatol. Sci. 2007;45(2):87-92; https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/17157480/)
To make cannabis salve, you need to infuse oil with cannabis. You can use buds and trim from plants. First the cannabis needs to be decarboxylated. Heat converts the CBD to a more easily absorbed, active form. To decarboxylate cannabis, heat an oven to 240 F. Break up the plant matter and spread it on a baking sheet. Cover it with foil and bake for 45 minutes. Remove and cool.
Warm the infused butter and oil in a double boiler and whisk in the arrowroot powder. Cool the mixture in the fridge. If you’re using essential oils, add them now. Whip with an egg beater or immersion blender into a creamy light lotion. Pour into containers.
Other options include adding other herbs or oils. If you are interested in skin salve, consider adding tea tree oil or calendula oil.
Add essential oil if using. Stir.
