Balm/Rub

  • Well, we're still working on things and I imagine we'll see some bugs, some breaking, and things that need to get fixed. We'll start on the most critical things first and work our way down. We're still installing add-on's and squaring away some licensing stuff, but feel free to browse the board and we'll update everyone on when things are added, restored, or otherwise changed.

I developed my body rub from the beeswax ratios listed in this article. Most of the time I'm using a 3X or 4X mix.

http://www.humblebeeandme.com/quick-guide-coconut-oil-beeswax-ratios/

So I will take concentrated cannabis oil usually about a syringe full, which is 10 grams by weight and about 10 mil. Then I will add about four or five times that amount in oil, I like grape seed oil and pumpkin oil. After that I mix in the ratio of beeswax that I select from the guide above. At the very end I add in a few terpenes, I like sage and Pine and oh there's a couple others that escape me right now.

Everything is done by weight and I consider 1 ml in a syringe the same as 1 gram and then I weigh out my beeswax by the gram.

Doing it that way I can calculate the percentage of cannabinoids because I have tested my plants in the past and I know the percentage of cannabinoids in my concentrated cannabis oil.

So the rub in this picture is 12 and a half percent cannabinoids and it is equally divided between CBD and THC.

Whatever the wife leaves me
I just made my "suck it and see" balm. I chopped a failed plant in bud. Dried it out and then chopped it up, stems, leaves and flower. I dropped it in my weed (coffee) grinder and then I decarboxylase the bud in the oven on a baking paper at 225f for 45 mins. I heated some water in my slow cooker on low and then dropped in 1 cup of coconut oil in a bowl in the cooker, dropped in my decarboxylased cannabis and cooked on low for 4 hours. I then strained into a jar and added beeswax, I guessed the quantity but maybe a cup full of comb. I then put the jar in a saucepan of hot water on the heat until the wax melted. Once melted, I put the pan in the sink, ran cold water in the pan and kept stirring until the concoction started to solidify. I have put this in the fridge. I got some oil on my fingers and licked it off, I am typing this feeling a nice buzz.
We shall see if the balm works. I made it for daughters eczema.
I literally completed this 30 minutes ago lol

Does it have to be decarbed for a balm
I don't de-carb, I've found that my process leaves me with about half active cannabinoids in about half inactive. I make my concentrated cannabis oil using the qwet method.
