Applying Marijuana to the body: Make your own cannabis topical

uber for medical marijuana

Every time we hear the word Marijuana, we think of that beautiful cerebral euphoria that makes the life of stoners as beautiful as it is. But is there more than meets the eye?  People have known the medicinal benefits of Marijuana since a very long time. That is possibly the biggest reason why more and more states are legalizing the usage and sale of cannabis globally. In the recent past, many reports of people suffering from chronic arthritis have claimed to feel better with a puff or two of marijuana. They have even noticed reduction in inflammation and swelling with limited yet regular smoking. Now since the objective of such patients is not to get high but to relieve their pain, smoking might not always be convenient. This is why you can choose to create your own salve to help with the pain. Make this medicinal marijuana lotion that can be applied topically as a balm to alleviate the pain.

Here’s what you need for your DIY salve:

  • 10 gms dried ground Cannabis
  • 5 cups coconut oil
  • Five cup beeswax
  • 5 drops of lavender essential oil


  • Decarboxylate your Marijuana first in a preheated oven at 230 degrees for about 30 minutes.
  • While your Cannabis is crisping, create a double boiler and place your coconut oil in it and warm it gently.
  • Once it is warmed up (only slightly) pour it over your dried Marijuana in a jar. Mix them thoroughly and leave it to infuse. Please note that if the coconut oil is too hot it will burn the Cannabis and reduce its effectiveness.
  • Now, Heat the same saucepan and add beeswax to it. Let it melt at a very low heat.
  • Once completely molten, slowly pour in the infused coconut oil into the beeswax. Stir until it turns into one homogeneous mixture.
  • Now turn of the heat and pour it back into your jar.
  • Let it cool and apply whenever required.


Alternatively, you can make a marijuana lotion instead of a salve. You can add dried Cannabis to equal parts Aloe Vera gel and olive oil. Mix in one teaspoon of Vitamin E oil and two teaspoons of cocoa butter or shea butter. Give the whole thing a good shake and let it infuse in a warm place for about 8 to 10 hours.

Using these ointments is pretty simple. Whenever the patient experiences pain, they can apply a thin layer of this mixture on the affected area. They will soon experience a whole lot of relief.

This is an excellent solution for people who want to get rid of the pain but want to avoid the intoxication that comes with it.
