Hi there, I can’t wait to make this salve. I have one question though. Am i able to speed up the infused oil by doing this process in my magic butter machine please. Or if anyone else has done this before.
Hi, I was wondering if anyone has ever added an essential oil (high quality) to add additional scent or to help the rub be most effective (like a peppermint oil)
Here’s what I’ve made a couple times in Oregon. It’s easy and effective. Slowly melt at least 8 ounces of edible cocoa butter (edible because it’s the highest quality) over very low heat in a very small saucepan. I use a portable butane burner because I can set the flame extremely low. Add as much crumbled dried cannabis as possible, while keeping the cannabis under the level of the melted cocoa butter. Keep the temperature at 250 F for sixty minutes. Turn off the heat if needed to keep the temperature from rising, then reapply heat. Make sure to take temperature readings with a good thermometer very frequently, and stir it a few times. When I make this balm, I cram so much cannabis in the pan that the thermometer almost stands upright in the pan. Strain and pour into molds or containers.
I have made the CBD salve with the cbd olive oil as directed. Can you tell me the shelf life of the salve?

it would not be an appropriate use of federal resources to go after a mother because her child has epileptic seizures and has found something that can help and has helped. Are they breaking the law? Yes, they are. Are we going to break her door down? Absolutely not. And I don’t think she’ll be charged by any U.S. Attorney.
Within our central nervous system, we have what is known as the Endocannabinoid system (ECS) with receptors that may help control our mood, appetite, and pain sensation, amongst other things.
Watch how I make this CBD salve:
On the other hand, I have also seen companies offering creams, salves, or body butters with 300mg-500mg per ounce and have heard of other topical products with even higher amounts.
If we want to make 60ml (2 ounces) of a CBD salve with around 300mg per ounce, we’ll want 600mg in our 2-ounce salve. That means we’ll want to add 12 ml of the Purium CBD oil to our recipe.
When formulating a homemade salve, I’d probably shoot for a minimum of 100mg per ounce and maybe start out somewhere in the middle ground like 300mg per ounce. You can always adjust your next batch up or down as needed.
