cbd oil cream for joint pain

23 posts in this topic

hiya, 

My old boy was banging on about buying some cbd oil for his dodgy knees and hip joints. 

the postie girl was telling him about it and how it worked wonders for her battle scarred knee joints.

 

He wont take anything that will get him mangled but would try it if it was say a cream you can rub in.

he knows i grow, so id like to help him out, if i can. 

 

any suggestions, or will it not work unless injested. im sure ive seen cbd creams for sale, but they are probably watered down wank.

he mentioned the price for advertised stuff but it sounded expensive, and its not as if im  short of bud.

 

Any recipes or links to help the old codger?

cheers

I had a blast at making it myself recently, just using flower at first but evolved it to use RSO/Feco  flower and Isolate pretty damn effective

Coconut oil /beeswax.

 

Decarb flower > infuse into coconut oil.

 

Make RSO add to infused Coconut oil.

 

 

Buy some CBG isolate (excels as an anti-inflammatory IME) Add to the coconut oil.  It will dissolve at around 50-60c into the Coconut oil in about 10 mins

you can do this with CBD to, just CBG is better for this sort of thing but no reason you can't add both, I did.

 

 

I didn't have any raw cannabis but if I did to hand, I'd add as THCa is also a good anti-inflammatory.

 

Also heard good things about emu oil as a carrier.

 

"Emu oil is high in omega-3, omega 6, and omega-9 fatty acids. These help reduce inflammation, ease muscular pain, and arthritic joint pain. They may also help relieve signs of wrinkles, scars, and blemishes by nourishing the skin cells."

(I haven't tried the Emu oil yet)

 

Basically, I'm trying to stack everything on anti inflammation, so even the weed used was a Piney indica.

You probably already some know terp's have anti-inflammatory effects.

(I always infuse in a jar to save the terpenes)

 

It takes some trial and error getting the coconut oil to beeswax ratios to your liking, so I'd suggest praticing on some non infused coconut oil first

 

for me, I remember using more coconut oil than wax.  50/50 was too hard for my liking, turned out like a lip balm  I did write all the ratios down, but I can't find it.

 

If you search, "Aluminium Tin Jars" Work well to store it in after you've made it.

 

Didn't make me high at all, I made mine for non cannabis user, and they reported no psychoactive effects.

 

In brief, make infused coconut oil ,add some isolate ,mix to the right ratio of beeswax, put in the tin put in it the fridge to solidify job done.

Caryophyllene and Pinene are what I went for, so spicy so like Sour D, Skywalker for Caryophyllene.

 

 

In jar infusions, if done right, really do preserve the flavour ! Google "in jar cannabis infusions"

flower for the terps Feco for the punch and CBG As the regulator and coconut oil as its £3-4

Yeah, I did have a look at that and a few general guides online, in regard to Dosage I Just adapted it a tad.

 

So many choices as to what to add and what carrier to use, I just went with what I had in the cupboards.

 

I'm not a fan of essential oils. Sure I read somewhere they can be  endocrine disruptors put me off,

I get CBD oil from Access CBD, pretty much the best value I've found apart from buying isolate in fairly large quantities. 

 

I make a balm for aches and pains, work's great on my Sciatica. Its full spectrum (THC and all) but I don't decarb it so it's not active enough to have any effect. Literally just bud/trim, coconut oil, bees wax,all in the slow cooker (low) for 12-24hrs then add CBD oil/isolate (depending on content in the bud/trim) and some essential oils to mask the smell a bit.   

 

When my osteoarthritis flares up that stuff works better than just about anything else I've tried. I give it to non smokers and none of them have reported any psychoactivity.

@MindSoup I'd have thought cooking it that long in the slow cooker would decarb it.

Yeah mate same, even low is fairly warm, maybe it is, but it doesn't get anyone high which is something I've grown to see as a bonus.

Has anyone tried this with AVB? My knees swell up and hurt like fuck when my colitis flares up, this seems like it could help, maybe add some CBG isolate as well.

Have not tried it with AVB yet, but if you do it let me know, I'd like to know if It's still got any anti-inflammatory cannabinoids left.

I made some AVB butter in the past, and it just seemed to mong me out. Not sure how that would translate into a topical...

I do have a lot of AVB myself.....

 

I actually have Chrohns and colitis, and unfortunately I find CBG as more obvious impact on Crohn's pains than colitis, but we are all different

and this is  a topical, so I'm not 100%.:unsure:

 

I find the type of food I'm eating has the biggest impact on  colitis to be honest. And CBD before having food in the morning acts as a protective, no good if you already in pain, but if you use it as a preventative seems to work better for me.
