Preheat the oven to degrees. Crush cannabis with your hands. The cannabis should be dry and crispy. One advantage to making topicals is that you can use all parts of the cannabis plant — buds, leaves, stems, and even the roots. The entire plant can be used. Just be sure to clean off any dirt particles before crushing the cannabis.
Measure out 2 cups of crushed cannabis and place in a Pyrex baking dish. Put in the oven for 10 minutes.
Then remove from the oven. Place the heated cannabis in the saucepan containing the coconut oil. Simmer anywhere from twenty minutes to an hour. Do not bring to a boil. Strain the mixture through a cheesecloth and set aside. Melt one ounce of beeswax in the saucepan.

Melt both together gently and add your desired essential oils. Remove your decarboxylated cannabis from the oven and mix it into the coconut oil.
Maintain a low heat and continue stirring the cannabis and oil mixture for 20 to 25 minutes. After 25 minutes, remove from heat and pour the mixture through a cheesecloth into the jar.
In the same saucepan or double boiler, add the beeswax and heat until it is melted. As the beeswax melts, slowly add the infused coconut oil. You can also add essential oils to your mixture—we recommend lavender, peppermint, or tea tree oils.
Just a few drops will do. Once the beeswax and coconut oils are thoroughly mixed, remove from heat and transfer into containers for your infused salve.
To increase the fluidity of your cream, increase the amount of olive oil or any other kind of oil—we recommend vitamin E oil or almond oil in your mixture. Our personal favorite is the classic 4 oz.

You can use half virgin and half refined olive oil to cut costs. I make a couple batches for migraines too. I blend part of the oil with cayenne or even hotter peppers. I then apply a light amount in the back of my neck, shoulders temple or forehead.
Just please wear gloves! My other back has rosemary and peppermint or lavender. I know this will work as much for your loved one as it has for me.
