However, almost everyone can get the medicinal benefits of cannabis through topical application. With the addition of our proprietary blend of essential oils, Simple Apothecary’s Minty-Hot Cannabis Salve becomes a powerful and fast-acting source of relief from pain and inflammation.

As you use this salve, I want to strongly encourage you to follow the full procedure outlined here. I believe it creates the maximum amount of healing and it sets your thought process on a healing path. I know it to be true for myself and for many of the people who have used my products.

Begin by taking the salve into your palms. Use enough to generously cover the painful and inflamed area, preferably going beyond the border. If it is a body part such as a hand, elbow or knee, use enough to go around all sides.

Close your eyes and breath deeply as you warm the salve between your palms. Picture in your mind pink healthy tissue and imagine the joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons healing any damage. Think about what relief will feel like. Now apply the salve, rubbing it in with care and attention. Continue to rub and massage the affected area until most of the salve has been absorbed. Find an affirmation that feels right to you, such as “healing begins within” or “my body is healthy and strong”, and repeat it several times. Take time to love and honor yourself.

Once you have finished applying the salve, rub the remainder into your hands or wash them carefully with soap and water. Do you feel that? That is the feeling of relief…

The Back Story

Cannabis is My Medicine

It took me a while to accept that cannabis had medicinal properties, despite having numerous friends claiming various health benefits. I kept thinking, riiiiiggghhhht, just admit you like to smoke pot...  Until I finally decided to pay attention to my own body. Turns out cannabis helps me tremendously with pain and inflammation when I use it correctly and in the right form, such as internally in a tincture. The only problem is sometimes I don’t want the altered headspace, even with the accompanying pain relief.

Enter Topicals

One particularly painful evening, the tincture was not bringing me the relief I desperately craved. I decided to mix some of the tincture with olive oil and applied it to my back and it worked. I finally started to get somewhere. I quickly learned how to make a basic salve using infused coconut oil, avocado oil and beeswax. Although the basic salve did have medicinal properties, it always seemed to be lacking slightly and required daily use for any real relief to happen.

Slowly over a number of years this transformed into my current version of the Minty-Hot Cannabis Salve. As I learned about the powerful synergistic properties of healing essential oils, it became obvious that adding them to the salve could only make it better. And it does. After countless variations of my recipe and scores of friends encouraging me to share the relief, I now bring you the finished product.
