½ gram of CBD isolate
Pure, 99% CBD isolate is a crystallized form of the cannabinoid CBD. It contains zero THC. The powder is tasteless and odorless. For each gram of CBD isolate, you are getting at least 990mg of CBD. We test our CBD isolate for potency and contaminants. But how can you use this very potent CBD powder?
CBD isolate can dissolve in any oil based substance, opening the possibilities for thousands of uses for CBD isolate. You can use it topically, to create your own edibles, or even vaporize it. Using CBD topically has been suggested to help pain deep within the muscles and joints. Topicals include a wide range of products from cream to salves to massage oil. Topicals can be expensive, and very potent ones can cost hundreds of dollars to buy pre-packaged. One of the easiest things to make is CBD massage/body oil.
FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION (FDA) DISCLOSURE
500mg CBD Massage/Body Oil:
Did you know we all have an Endocannabinoid System? Yep. Just like we have an endocrine system, immune system, digestive system, and so on. Our bodies have natural receptors, literally made to interact with cannabinoid compounds. This includes both internal, naturally-synthesized cannabinoids and those from external sources – like those from marijuana or hemp. Neat, huh?
In our cannabis salve recipe, we prefer to use mostly coconut oil, because it is full of saturated fat that binds well with cannabinoids. It is also ultra-moisturizing. We also add a dash of olive oil to increase absorption and smoothness. To learn more about various carrier oils, check out our homemade calendula oil article – where I discuss the pros and cons of a dozen different oil options!
Makes: Approximately 2 cups (16 ounces) of finished salve
*Notes: If you want to scale this recipe up or down: the general rule of thumb for salve is to use about 1 part of beeswax to 4 or 5 parts oil, including both coconut and olive oil. Since we use virgin coconut oil that is solid at room temperature, we can get away with lesser beeswax and the salve will still set up well. If you use a different carrier oil that is liquid at room temperature, either omit the extra 1/3 cup olive oil mentioned above, or increase the amount of beeswax pastilles to 1/2 cup.
If you tuned into our “How to Make Cannabis Oil” tutorial, you will recognize these steps. The process is virtually the same, except we are going to use slightly more coconut oil here. If you’re interested in making medicated edibles, check out that article!
