This is the base recipe I use.
I have made a few changes.

1. Instead of EVOO (extra virgin Olive Oil) I use black caster oil. Regular caster oil works too if you can’t find Black caster oil.

2. I Use bud not trim. You can use trim but your salve will not work as well or be as potent.

3. Rubbing it in is key to getting relief.
The longer you rub it in the faster it works.

4. Eucalyptus or Lemon essential oil hides the smell of the cannabis better than lavender. I thought lavender would help sleeping. It does not even work at all so don't by lavender. My fav is lemon.

5. triple the amount of wax. Less wax equals oilier ointment.

6. To make it vegan just substitute soy wax for bees wax. Bees wax version is smother.
Sox wax is a bit gritty but rubs in good. Your skin will melt the grittiness.

Feel free to chime in if you have tried it.

I will do my best to answer any questions.

It works on pain, inflammation, psoriases, dermatitis, skin cancer cells, eczema, fungal infections, neuropathy,.. this is what I have tried it on.

I started making it for dad. He was on 10 mg of hydrocodone/acetaminophen. Dad is almost 88 he is no longer taking opioids. He only uses the canna salve for pain. No side effects other than smell which fades in 10-20 minutes.

My Wife loves her salve. She has a lot of back pain due to osteoporosis.Very easy to spread and it's like silk. I have to put it on my Wife's back every night. My hands smell great and are soft afterwards.🥰
I'm thinking,,,hummmm,,where else might I use that salve.😁
 
This is my updated recipe

1 1/3 C coconut infused canna oil
1/3 C caster oil black if you can get it
(Extra Virgin Olive Oil can be substituted)
1 1/2 C bees wax ( soy wax for vegan)
1-2 Tbs essential oil lemon works best
( make sure its skin grade )
Vit E oil 1 tbs

Using a double boiler melt the wax completely.
Turn off double boiler for the rest.
Add the caster and vit e oils mix well.
Add essential oil.
Poor into light proof containers
They will get solid quickly so be ready with containers.
 
Sounds a lot like the stuff I made. I used tea tree oil and menthol crystals in mine, too. I've gotta find some coal and coke to get my old laptop fired up and find the original Beemer Bill's Botanical Balm recipe.
Tee tree oil is bad for pets and mine are bad. Always eating or chewing something. We are working on it but I don't want no accidents.
It is a good choice in place if the EVOO. Black caster oil helps with inflammation that is why I chose it.
