Applied directly to your skin, cannabis can help with pain, inflammation, and other skin disorders like eczema and psoriasis. This homemade salve is also extremely moisturizing with added beeswax and cocoa butter. All you have to do is melt the ingredients and store in a small jar or other container. I’ve even saved old chapstick tubes and made cannabis lotion bars using silicone muffin molds. Just remember to keep your salve in a cool place. It’s designed to melt with your body heat, so you can only imagine what the sunshine will do!
