How to Make Homemade Cannabis Salve (CBD or THC)

To grow and make your own medicine… that is the stuff that dreams are made of, am I right?! We like to use our organic homegrown cannabis in a variety of ways, but making topical cannabis salve is on the top of the list. Cannabis salve can help to reduce inflammation, soothe skin irritation, joint pain, and more! It also happens to be quite simple to make your own cannabis salve, and easy to customize it to suit your needs.

Read along to learn how to make cannabis salve in 4 simple steps. With this recipe, you can use marijuana, hemp, high CBD, high THC, raw cannabis, decarbed cannabis, or any combination thereof! (Depending on what is legal and available in your area of course.) Let’s talk about benefits of each of those, how cannabis salve works, and what awesome healing potential it has.

What is Cannabis Salve


Maybe we need to step back a moment. How about, “what is a salve?”. A salve is simply the term for a healing solution that you put on your skin, including creams, ointments, or balms. Generally, salves are fairly thick, shelf-stable, and include nourishing oils such as coconut oil, olive oil, sweet almond oil, or others.

In our cannabis salve recipe, we prefer to use mostly coconut oil, because it is full of saturated fat that binds well with cannabinoids. It is also ultra-moisturizing. We also add a dash of olive oil to increase absorption and smoothness. To learn more about various carrier oils, check out our homemade calendula oil article – where I discuss the pros and cons of a dozen different oil options!

Salves also typically contain waxes or butters to bind the ingredients and make them semi-solid at room temperature. Beeswax is a popular option because it is readily available, easy to work with (especially when purchased in pastilles), and creates perfectly smooth results. See the ingredient list below for recommended vegan substitutions.

When cannabis is added to salve as an ingredient… voila! You’ve got yourself a cannabis salve. The most common way to add cannabis to a salve recipe is to create a cannabis-infused oil first, and then combine the oil with the other salve ingredients.


Our homegrown, homemade cannabis coconut oil.



Therefore, that is exactly what we’re going to do in this recipe: make cannabis oil, and then the salve. But first: “what kind of cannabis should I use in my oil or salve?”


Using Decarboxylated or Raw Cannabis in Salve


How about a little bit of both? 


If you aren’t familiar with the term, decarboxylation is the process of heating cannabis at an ideal time and temperature to transform raw cannabinoid compounds from their “acid” form to more active and potent versions. For example, CBDA and THCA are changed into CBD and THC respectively. Decarboxylation naturally occurs when cannabis is smoked or vaporized, but it needs to be accomplished by other means when using cannabis in oil or salves – such as by heating it in the oven. (Read more about decarboxylation here)

The medicinal benefits of decarboxylated THC and CBD are well-documented. Both are anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, high in antioxidants, relieve pain, relax muscles, and suppress tumor growth. This is especially true when they’re used and work together, known as the “entourage effect“. THC is a particularly powerful analgesic (pain-reliever). CBD has even more expansive healing applications, and can help relieve seizures, rheumatoid arthritis, and psoriasis. That said, we definitely want to reap those benefits and use decarbed cannabis in this salve recipe! 

On the other hand, emerging studies are revealing that raw THCA and CBDA have some pretty groovy perks too. THCA is showing a promising ability to reduce inflammation, muscle spasms, arthritis, and cancer. CBDA also fights inflammation and tumor growth.

Beyond CBD and THC, there are dozens of other compounds found in cannabis that may produce individual, interactive, or synergistic benefits, including phytocannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes. It should be noted that THC is psychoactive and CBD is not, though that doesn’t matter all that much when making a cannabis salve intended for topical use only. 

Considering all of this, we like to use both decarbed and raw organic cannabis (containing both THC and CBD) to create a full-spectrum, well-rounded, ultra-healing finished product.


What Can Cannabis Salve Be Used For? 


Cannabis salve is stellar at relieving many ailments! First of all, coconut oil and olive oil are extremely nourishing on their own – so you’re going to get plenty of moisture from your salve to heal dry, cracked, or otherwise irritated skin. If you add a few drops of essential oils to your salve, you’ll also get the benefit of aromatherapy.

The healing properties of your homemade cannabis salve may vary slightly depending on what type of cannabis you use. In general, cannabis salve can be used to treat or relieve the following :

  • Psoriasis
  • Eczema
  • Rashes, itching, or other skin irritation
  • General inflammation
  • Sore joints
  • Arthritis
  • Muscle aches
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Irregular cell growth (e.g. skin cancer cells)


Personally, I like to rub a little cannabis salve on my tight and sore neck muscles, shoulders, wrists, knees, elbows, ankles, bottom of my feet, and behind my ears. Hey, all this gardening (and sitting to blog) does a number on my body!

How Does It Work?


Did you know we all have an Endocannabinoid System? Yep. Just like we have an endocrine system, immune system, digestive system, and so on. Our bodies have natural receptors, literally made to interact with cannabinoid compounds. This includes both internal, naturally-synthesized cannabinoids and those from external sources – like those from marijuana or hemp. Neat, huh?

When cannabis salve or medicated topicals are applied to our skin, the THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids present in the solution penetrate the skin to bind and activate our localized endocannabinoid receptors. They won’t enter the bloodstream however, so topically-applied salve will not get you “high”. 




HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE CANNABIS SALVE 


Supplies Needed


  • 7-10 grams of decarboxylated cannabis (ground or torn to fairy small pieces). If your cannabis is not yet decarbed, see Step 1 in the instructions below.
  • 1 ½ cups of coconut oil OR, 1 ½ cups of already-infused cannabis coconut oil (*see notes about using different types of oil below)
  • Optional: 5 grams raw cannabis, dried and cured. 
  • 1/3 cup olive oil 
  • 1/3 cup beeswax pastilles (vegan option: replace with the same amount of organic soy wax, candelilla wax, or carnauba wax)
  • Optional: Essential oils of choice. I like using this certified organic lavender oil. Tea tree, peppermint, rosemary, lemon, or eucalyptus are also great choices!
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon of shea butter or 1 teaspoon of vitamin E oil for additional antioxidants and moisture
  • A double-boiler, or make-shift double boiler – such as a glass pyrex bowl or stainless steel bowl perched on top of a saucepan with water below
  • Cheesecloth (if your cannabis oil is not already made)
  • Mixing bowl
  • Glass jars or salve tins, for storage
  • Recommended: probe thermometer


Makes: Approximately 2 cups (16 ounces) of finished salve


*Notes: If you want to scale this recipe up or down: the general rule of thumb for salve is to use about 1 part of beeswax to 4 or 5 parts oil, including both coconut and olive oil. Since we use virgin coconut oil that is solid at room temperature, we can get away with lesser beeswax and the salve will still set up well. If you use a different carrier oil that is liquid at room temperature, either omit the extra 1/3 cup olive oil mentioned above, or increase the amount of beeswax pastilles to 1/2 cup.




INSTRUCTIONS


Step 1) Decarboxylate Your Cannabis


If you haven’t done so already, the first step is to decarboxylate the cannabis you intend to use in this salve recipe. Or at least some of it, if you want to also use some raw material. 

Grind or tear up the cannabis into fairly small pieces. Spread it evenly on a baking sheet, and heat it in the oven on 250°F for 25-30 minutes. Easy, right? 



Step 2) Create & Strain Cannabis-Infused Oil 


If you tuned into our “How to Make Cannabis Oil” tutorial, you will recognize these steps. The process is virtually the same, except we are going to use slightly more coconut oil here. If you’re interested in making medicated edibles, check out that article!

When making cannabis oil, it is important to not overheat it. Because we are starting with already-decarboxylated cannabis, maintaining a lower temperature will preserve the already-active THC and CBD content as well as the terpenes. Avoid heating it over 200 degrees F. 120 to 180°F is even better.  

That is where a double-boiler comes in handy! Even over the lowest flame, heating oil in a pot directly on the stove is much more difficult to prevent overheating, and can create “hot spots” – destroying our precious cannabinoids. 

I suggest monitoring the oil temperature with a probe thermometer if possible. Because oils have a higher boiling point (or “smoke point”) than water, the oil will not appear to be as hot as it really is! For example, the oil may be well over 212 degrees but not visibly bubble and boil like water would at the same temperature.


Steps to Make Cannabis-Infused Oil:

  • Add water to the bottom pan of your double-boiler. Now add 1.5 cups of coconut oil to the top section of the double-boiler. Heat until it melts.

  • Stir in 710 grams of decarboxylated cannabis to the melted oil. Add an optional few grams of raw ground cannabis if you desire.

  • Continue to heat the cannabis and oil over a low heat for 30 to 60 minutes, stirring occasionally. Use a probe thermometer to check the temperature, and adjust the heat as needed to maintain the oil below 200°F. We aim for a target temperature range of around 130 to 150°F and infuse for one hour.

  • When the time is up, line a strainer with cheesecloth and position it over a glass bowl. Pour the cannabis and oil mixture through the strainer. Gather the cheesecloth and gently squeeze out the excess oil from the cannabis. Warning: the oil will be hot, and your hands will get greasy! You may want to wear food-grade gloves.

  • Keep the strained cannabis oil aside for now. It will be added to the salve mixture soon.




Step 3) Mix the Salve Ingredients


Just like the last step, we want to avoid excessively heating the cannabis oil in order to preserve cannabinoids. If you happen to be using solidified cannabis-infused coconut oil that you previously made, I highly suggest mixing everything in a double-boiler once again (since you’ll need to heat it longer and hotter to re-melt your oil).

On the other hand, if you just made your cannabis oil and it is still liquified, you can do this step straight in a pot on the stove – keeping the heat as low as possible once the cannabis coconut oil is added.  

In either a pot or double-boiler, add ⅓ cup of beeswax. Heat until it is completely melted. Now turn down the heat to low. Next, stir in 1.5 cups of strained cannabis coconut oil and ⅓ cup olive oil. Now is the time to add the optional vitamin E plus a few drops of optional essential oils as well. Stir until everything looks completely combined. Once it is, quickly remove the liquid salve from the heat and transfer it into your storage containers of choice.




Step 4) Cool & Store


When it is ready, I pour the liquid salve straight into these 2 ounce glass jars, or these 4 ounce glass jars. You can also use these shallow wide aluminum salve tins. The cannabis salve will harden as it cools, and then it is ready to use!

It is best to store your finished cannabis salve in a cool dark location because light degrades cannabinoids. The amber and cobalt jars we use block UV light, which protects the salve if I leave it out.




Note: Sometimes, the surface of the salve may crack just a little bit as it cools. See the photos below. I have found that salve in our 2-ounce glass containers don’t crack, but larger volumes may. This is really only an aesthetic “issue” if you care. Personally, I don’t mind. It disappears as soon as you begin to dig in and use it!

However, some folks may not like the appearance of the cracks – particularly if the cannabis salve is going to be sold or given as a gift. To avoid settling cracks, put the cannabis salve in a mixing bowl before transferring it into a storage container. Allow it to only partially cool and solidify, whip and mix it up, and then pack into your containers. 


In this case, the crack doesn’t kill.

With less than 0.3% THC, it is non-psychoactive and legal in the US. The orange label is great for anxiety, stress, inflammation, and pain – anytime. The CBG (white) has some added power against inflammation, IBS, nausea, and cancer cell growth. CBN (black) will help you sleep more soundly while also easing tension, perfect for bedtime use.



Step 5) Feel Good


Lather up! Apply a thin, even layer to the affected area. You should start to feel the results within 5 to 20 minutes, depending on the severity of your issue and strength of your salve. Repeat several times per day as needed. 


Will this make me smell like weed?

Just slightly! I find our salve to have a mild cannabis odor, but nothing overpowering. The coconut aroma also stands out. If you add essential oils to your recipe, that can also help to mask the smell. I often apply salve after showering (including before going to work) and don’t think there is much of a noticeable odor after a half an hour or so. No one has ever said anything to me at least!


How long does cannabis salve last?

When stored in ideal cool and dark conditions, homemade cannabis salve should last up to a year. The potency will only slightly decrease during this time. I try to use clean hands when I dig into my salve jars, to avoid introducing any contamination that could make it potentially mold or spoil faster. You could also use a salve spoon.

  • Cheesecloth, like this organic unbleached cheesecloth
  • Fine mesh strainer
  • Glass bowl
  • Glass storage jars or salve tins
  • Recommended: a probe thermometer
  • A baking sheet, if not using already-decarboxylated cannabis

Ingredients

  • 1.5 cup Coconut oil
  • 1 cup Loosely ground decarboxylated cannabis. To be more precise, I suggest to use a kitchen to weigh out approximately 7 to 10 grams (a quarter ounce or just over) (If not yet decarbed, see Step 1 below)

  • 1 tsp Vitamin E oil, or 1 Tbsp shea butter (optional)
  • 4-5 drops Essential oils of choice (optional)

Instructions

Decarb Cannabis

  • If your cannabis is not yet decarboxylated, grind or tear it up into fairly small pieces. Spread evenly on a baking sheet, and heat it in the oven on 250°F for 25 to 30 minutes.

Make Cannabis-Infused Oil (skip to next section if you already did this)

  • Add water to the bottom pan of your double-boiler. Now add 1.5 cup of coconut oil to the top section of the double-boiler. Heat until it melts.
  • Stir in 7-10 grams of decarboxylated cannabis into the melted oil. Feel free to also include an optional few grams of raw ground cannabis if you desire.
  • Continue to heat the cannabis and oil over a low heat for 30 to 60 minutes, stirring occasionally. Use a probe thermometer to check the temperature. Adjust the heat as needed to maintain the oil below 200°F. (We aim for 130 to 150°F, and infuse for one hour)

  • Keep the strained cannabis oil aside for now. It will be added to the salve mixture soon.

Mix Salve Ingredients

  • If you're using solidified cannabis-infused coconut oil that you previously made, I highly suggest mixing everything in a double-boiler once again (since you’ll need to heat it longer and hotter to re-melt your oil). OR, if you just made your cannabis oil and it is still liquified, you can do this step straight in a pot on the stove – keeping the heat as low as possible once the cannabis coconut oil is added.  
  • In either a pot or double-boiler, add ⅓ cup of beeswax. Heat until it is completely melted. Now turn down the heat to low.

  • Stir until everything looks completely combined. Once it is, quickly remove the liquid salve from the heat and transfer it into your storage containers of choice.
  • The cannabis salve will harden as it cools, and then it is ready to use!

Storing & Using Cannabis Salve

  • Store the finished cannabis salve in a cool dark location because light degrades cannabinoids (amber/colbalt glass jars or salve tins will block UV). Keep out of reach from children.
  • Apply a thin, even layer to the affected area. You should start to feel the results within 5 to 20 minutes, depending on the severity of your issue and strength of your salve. Repeat several times per day as needed.
  • When stored in ideal cool and dark conditions, homemade cannabis salve should last up to a year. The potency will only slightly decrease during this time. I try to use clean hands when I dig into my salve jars, to avoid introducing any contamination that could make it potentially mold or spoil faster. 

Notes

Notes on Strength:
It is nearly impossible to determine the exact potency of homemade oils and salves (without lab testing, not practical or affordable) no matter if you are using homegrown or dispensary cannabis. There are simply too many variables and opportunities (time/temp) for the THC or CBD to increase or decrease in concentration throughout the process.
 
Notes regarding oil options and scaling:
If you want to scale this recipe up or down, the general rule of thumb for salve is to use about 1 part of beeswax to 4 or 5 parts oil, including both coconut and olive oil. Since we use virgin coconut oil that is solid at room temperature, we can get away with lesser beeswax and the salve will still set up well. If you use a different carrier oil that is liquid at room temperature, either omit the extra 1/3 cup olive oil mentioned above, or increase the amount of beeswax pastilles to 1/2 cup.

  • Dawn

    I am looking forward to trying this recipe but I have a question: I received some cannabis from my brother in law, it isn’t in a leaf form and think it may be called hash. I am sorry not a smoker so I am not familar with the different states of the plant… Can I use that to make the salve instead? Would I use about the same amount as the recipe recommends?

    thank you and I really appreciate this website and all the work you two do for everyone!
    Dawn

    • Aaron (Mr. DeannaCat)

      Hi Dawn, what you have is more highly concentrated than the flower itself, but you can still make cannabis oil with it to use in salve. Since it is more concentrated, you probably only have to use 1 or 2 grams for our particular recipe. Hope that helps and good luck! Thanks for your support and let us know how it turns out.

    SALVE.
    I grow a liltle for myself and a few friends, occasionally vape a little, but primarily tinctures, salves, edibles etc.
    As i get ‘older’ with declining abilities I simplify as much as possible, have been using the MBM for a number of years. Would be interested in how you would make a salve starting with a tincture, using only basic ingredients. Have experimented but would appreciate your feedback. Grow your own,grow organic.

    • Aaron (Mr. DeannaCat)

      Hi Patrick, to use a tincture in your salve I would allow the beeswax to fully melt in the carrier oil before slowly adding the tincture while slowly whisking it into the mixture. You will need to cook off the water and or alcohol that is in the tincture and it will rise to the top in bubbles, when the bubbles stop forming when you stir, the water or alcohol should be burned off, then remove from heat. If you want to simplify the recipe, check out our calendula salve recipe, use almond or sunflower oil (or both) as your carrier oil, add the appropriate amount of beeswax and shea butter (optional), add your tincture, and that should be it. Hope that helps and good luck!

    I love the information that you share with us all. I was wondering what the mg for this recipe is? I am needing more than 250 mg for my hands as that is a smaller amount than needed. How can I tell what strength I have made?

    Thank you for always providing us with amazing information..

    P.S. Love the new house.

    • Aaron (Mr. DeannaCat)

      Hi Sylvia, we are glad that you enjoy the information that we share and thank you for your support! Unfortunately we have not tested any of the cannabis that we have used for oil or salve so we are not sure of the exact mg of THC or CBD that it contains. We are growing a high CBD strain this year and plan of getting it tested come harvest time so we will know the percentages. If you know the THC or CBD content of the flower you used to make the oil, you can look up a THC/CBD calculator online that will give you a better idea of the specific mg content of your oil itself. Hopefully the salve helps give your hands some relief.

    • Aaron (Mr. DeannaCat)

      Hi Cathy, we haven’t had our salve mold but you could probably scrape or scoop away the visible portions of mold along with the surrounding area and go from there.

        It’s been a while since I made any diy at home experiments so this was a real treat for me. My husband I are in our 60s so pain is inevitable. We are in a legal Mary Jane state and got what we needed for this recipe because what we buy at the market is a 3 oz jar for 60$. This was so much less than that- I doubled the recipe. Looks exactly like what I pay a whole lot more for. I’ve already tried it on myself and seems to be doing its job. Also, got a little water in it somehow but it stayed at the bottom of the jar, separated from the salve. I poked a hole down the center of the salve and drained it out. Then stirred it and it solidified. So don’t panick about the water wait it out and drain it. Thxs for the recipe!

        • Aaron (Mr. DeannaCat)

          That’s great to hear Dianne! It can really help with aches and pains, hope you and your husband enjoy it.

    • Aaron (Mr. DeannaCat)

      Hi Robin, you can definitely use a crockpot instead of a double boiler, check out the recommended temperatures range for cannabis oils and be sure that your crockpot won’t heat it too much over that range. Using the lowest temperature setting is probably your best bet. Good luck and let us know how it turns out.

  • Kate

    Hi! Loving how the recipe looks and I can’t wait to try it!! Do you think though that I could use a store bought CBD oil? Appreciate any thoughts on that you might have 🙂

    • Aaron (Mr. DeannaCat)

      Hi Kate, you can use store bought CBD oil but I am not sure of the strength or the brand you are using. If you are making a full batch you will probably want to use close to 30 mL of the CBD oil. Hope that helps and good luck in making your salve!

  • Lauralee

    I forgot to add to my original post….
    Do you think I can salvage my last (double) batch of salve by remelting and mixing it?

    • Aaron (Mr. DeannaCat)

      Yes, I think you can salvage it by doing just that. I would just add more beeswax to ensure it sets up more.

      Deanna or Aaron,

      You guys have such a great website! I can’t say enough about all of the things I’ve learned here. I would like to have your thoughts on the procedure I use to make salve for my wife who suffers from atypical trigeminal neuralgia. This may sound a little like overkill, but I try to make the strongest salve possible. I start by decarbing the cannabis in an Ardent Nova. Then, instead of running an infusion cycle into coconut oil, I follow this procedure with the decarbed cannabis to totally extract as much resin as possible: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0sGWxz0DMSI I then take the resin (FECO) and combine it with the various oils you list. The resulting salve helps my wife a lot. When making cannabis caps, I always infuse into coconut oil using the Ardent Nova. However, for topical applications I like to extract as much resin as possible. Thanks again!

      • Aaron (Mr. DeannaCat)

        Hi Allen and thank you so much for the kind words, we are happy that you find the site so helpful! It is so great to hear that you are able to provide your wife with some relief using this amazing plant, quality ingredients and ingenious techniques. Good luck to you both and hope to hear from you again in the future.

    I just made my second batch of salve using your recipe. The first batch turned out perfect. The second batch separated as it cooled in the jars. It almost looked like the beeswax didn’t fully melt. It looked like little beads in the salve and the salve never really solidified.
    The one thing I did differently when making the two batches is on the first batch I made the oil just before making the salve. I melted the wax and then added the oil which was still liquid. The second batch I made the oil a couple of days before the salve so I melted the oil in a double boiler and then added the wax. I stirred it well and everything appeared to be combined. It looked normal until it cooled.
    Have you experienced this? Do you think it had to do with melting the wax in the oil rather than melting the wax first and adding the oil the melted wax?
    Btw…I love this recipe and all the explanation that is included.

    • Aaron (Mr. DeannaCat)

      Hello Lauralee, glad to hear you had some success with the recipe. I don’t believe adding the wax before or after the oil makes much of a difference as long as everything gets fully heated into liquid form. Maybe the amount of beeswax wasn’t sufficient for the amount of oil to make it solidify more? We make all types of salves and we always add oil, beeswax, and shea butter in that order while the ingredients are room temperature and the heat from the double boiler isn’t yet kicking.. If there is enough beeswax, the salve should set up. Also be sure to keep any water out of your mixture which could affect the final product as well. Hope that helps and good luck!

  • JANICE E O'HOSKI

    I’ve been looking for a recipe THC Salve for awhile now and this recipe looks awesome and just what we wanted. I’m wondering if we can add some Aloe Vera to the recipe…..we have so many large Aloe plants and I would like to incorporate in the salve but I don’t want it to get watered down either. Do you have any suggestions as to how we can do that?

    Thanks for everything…..I love your website….just found it!!

    Thx Jan
