How to make thc salve

This is where I got slightly annoyed. Sure, there are loads of recipes, just Google “salve recipes” and you’ll come up with a whole slew of them, but none explained why the herbs were good or how you could further mix ingredients to benefit your specific needs. After all, we are all different!

  • 2 tsp peppermint
  • 1 tsp orange
  • 1 tsp lavender

However, I ran into a few hiccups along the way. There were plenty of recipes, but none involved cannabis alongside other medicinal herbs. And, while cannabis is a powerful and potent plant, I wanted more. More benefits, more healing, and more love!

  1. Grab your double boiler or crockpot along with the herbs you plan on infusing into the oil.
  2. Be sure to break up any large herbs, such as cannabis flowers, so the entir surface area of the plant can be exposed to the oils during the infusion process.
  3. Place all of your herbs into the double boiler or crockpot along with the oils. Be sure to mix everything around, so that all ingredients are fully immersed in the oil.
  4. Place on medium to low heat and let the oils infuse over the next 6-8 hours. Do NOT let the infusion exceed 107C/225F. Tip: Place a candy thermometer in the crockpot or double boiler to watch the temperatures.
  5. Once the time has passed, grab your cheesecloth, latex gloves, bowls, funnel to begin separating the solids from the liquids.
  6. Place the cheesecloth into the funnel and begin to ladle or pour the mixture through the cheesecloth.
  7. After full, squeeze the cheesecloth to remove any excess liquids.
  8. Repeat steps 6 & 7 until all oil and solids are separated.
  9. Cover the container that has your oil infusion in it until you’re ready to go on to the next steps.

Remember: you can always allow the mixture to fully cool, test, and reheat if the consistency is not where you want it to be yet, but infusing more oil to reverse the chapstick nightmare is not always a fun task.
Now the fun part — putting all these wonderful ingredients together to make a heavenly pain relieving cannabis-infused salve!

Shortly thereafter, curious and confused, I began a quest to uncover what were these magical creams that aren’t creams at all and what can they even do?
