Cannabis Root Salve


Recommended Posts

Yes, made the same way as  canabutter but with coconut oil and roots only. 

It worked really well for stiff joints/ arthritis.

The relief it afforded lasted about 3-4 hours.

It was very labor intensive to produce, getting all the dirt out of the roots is not easy.

After making another RSO based topical, with many synergistic ingredients,  that worked much better and on more types of pain, root balm probably won't be made again.

can anyone tell me how to make root salve

 

Cannabis Root Salve

 

Start by making an infused oil.

 

Ingredients:

  • Ground dried cannabis roots
  • coconut or olive oil

 

Method:

Place ground dried roots in a crock-pot and cover with coconut or olive oil by an inch or two. Gently heat the mixture over very low heat for 4-5 hours. Allow to cool. Strain and pour into dry sterilized amber bottles. (I like using Worcestershire sauce bottles).  

 

Ingredients:

  • 8 oz infused oil
  • 1 oz beeswax
  • vitamin E (as a preservative)
  • 10-20 drops essential oil (optional, I like peppermint)

 

Method:

Place infused oils and beeswax over a double boiler and warm over low heat until the wax melts.  Turn off the heat and add the essential oil and vitamin E.  Pour into a glass jar.

The consistency of the salve can be adjusted depending on your preferences.

Use less wax for a soft salve and more wax if you want a thicker salve.

 

Once it cools you can make adjustments by reheating and adding more oil or more wax until you get the consistency you want.

with 'synergistic ingredients'.  worked better?

Yes better and lasted longer.

If you do a google search for "cancer fighting topical oil", the recipe i used will be near the top of the list.

It is located on a the mmmg site. 

Recipe makes a gallon but can easily be reduced as long as the proportions stay the same the results will also be the same.

I mix it with Burts Bees, a farmers friend salve in a 50/50 ratio, adding enough rso to maintain .125 to .20 grams rso per ounce of finished product. 

The Burts bees makes it solid at room temperature and provides a handy tin to use it from.

 

I was skeptical before I made the root balm, but it worked.

I was still skeptical about the above salve too, but it worked better and lasted much longer. Once a day and i'm pain free.

I smoke and eat edibles significantly less since i have this salve at my disposal.

Please be joking.

That statement hurts the part of my brain responsible for logic.

Then tell me your logic that supports your theory otherwise. That would have made a better reply don't ya think? I've extracted from all parts of the plant and see no difference. I can get the same things out of all parts of the part, in different quantities, at different stages of growth. What have you seen that is different?

The roots contain nothing psychoactive. Primarily terpenes, lipids, sugars and some alkaloids, including piperidine and pyrrolidine.

You must grow some sad buds or have a magic extraction process.

Read what I wrote wood. I said; IN DIFFERENT QUANTITIES in different parts of the plant.

Here's the deal;

I have 18 gallon aero reservoirs and they fill totally with roots. It's an aeroponic, underground, automatic, geothermal, set up that I invented. I was harvesting my original headband res and I have to tear the roots up with my hands to get my heaters and bubblers out of the roots for the next run. I noticed my hands got sticky tearing these roots up. So I did a quick alcohol wash on 36 gallons of roots and guess what? Yup, there's THC on the roots too. Less quantity than with tops of course. I also have gotten THC out/off of stems too.

No magic here wood. Just paying attention and trying different things. I think that if your plants are good enough even the roots have THC all over them. Someday you might discover sticky roots too.

Tested by 4 patients. The only way. Tested it over and over until it was gone and they wanted more. I only got 3 grams of good oil off of 36 gallons of roots.

 

Bill,

 

What makes more sense to you, there's THC in there or there is none?  Same with stems. Using your own results and thought process, do you really believe there's ZERO THC in any part of an elite plant, grown to it's full potential, at late harvest?

4 patients getting results means nothing in regard to thc content.

 If I rub my sore muscles the pain is better, my fingertips must produce thc.

That kind of thinking is what perpetuates many myths.

If you want to believe there is, good for you.

OK Man. If you think that 4 patients can't tell if there's THC in there then I don't know what else to say other than, "You have been blinded by junk science."

 

I'm going to keep doing what I do and ask patients to test it for me.

Yup, the patients getting relief is what matters the most, on that we agree.

You do come across as someone who does have their best interests as the main goal, however misguided your take on science seems to me.

There is no such thing as "junk science", in my opinion.  Science is based on repeatable tests and  facts. Interpretations can vary wildly.

When it comes down to the science we disagree, have a nice day.
