No, because it’s super-easy and convenient to make your own at home using our powerful and cost-effective CBD oil.
Here are the instructions:
Make sure to note three main aspects, and you can enjoy a DIY version within minutes.
1. Choosing Your Base
When making a base, there are many different ingredients to choose from, such as:
Or any store-bought lotions.
Each one comes with its own benefits and will provide a different consistency. Beeswax, for example, is more frequently used to create a harder salve, as opposed to a softer lotion.
A salve will be an ideal choice if you intend on applying the topical to a small, contained area.
However, a lotion will be easier to spread across a larger area.
You can combine however many ingredients you feel are necessary to make you base. For example, coconut oil and beeswax may provide a balanced consistency that also massages the skin.
Alternatively, if you’re on a budget, simply incorporating your chosen CBD oil with a store-bought lotion will serve your needs properly.
Be sure to check the ingredients list, however, and ensure your branded lotion has a low water content. Water and oil don’t mix, after all, and this can lead to a topical that doesn’t spread evenly.
2. Choosing your CBD Oil
When making a topical, you’re going to use anywhere from 300 to 600 milligrams of cannabidiol oil so you will want to choose a concentrated oil suitable for this purpose.
3. Measure Properly
Measuring becomes extremely important, as you want to balance the amount of base with the amount of CBD oil, according to how much is needed each time.
When making a salve, you’ll be using less total ingredients than with a lotion. This is because salves are more condensed and deliver focused results, so you can incorporate less beeswax but the same amount of CBD oil.
If you decide to make your own salve, add the CBD oil before taking it off the heat. If you decided to buy a pre-made salve, remove it from its container and heat it either on low in the microwave or in a pot on the stove at low heat.
Add 400mg of CBD oil for every 60ml of salve.
We would recommend using either the Canntica 2500mg or the 5000mg best value for this because they are the most concentrated at 4mg per drop.
If you use either of these products, you’ll be using 100 drops (4 x 100 = 400mg) for every 60ml of salve.
For a lotion topical, you’ll have more to use, but you’ll need a greater amount to get the same affect.
Since lotion is already easy to mix, simply add 600mg of CBD oil for every one cup of lotion and stir until completely dispersed into the lotion.
Again, we would recommend using either the Canntica 2500mg or the 5000mg best value for this because they are the most concentrated at 4mg per drop.
If you use either of these products, you’ll be using 150 drops (4 x 150 = 600mg) for every one cup of lotion.
If you decide later that your topical is too strong or too weak, you can add more base or CBD oil to it as needed. Salves will need to be warmed up before adding more CBD oil, as they tend to harden and will resist the oil.
Now you can use CBD oil in two ways: systemically by placing drops under the tongue and topically via your salve or lotion.
