Some are flavored and others are simply hemp paper so you can enjoy the full flavor of the particular CBD hemp flower. 100% organic hemp papers allow you to enjoy a clean smoke so every flavor of your flower can be enjoyed. The Raw King cones(2) come with a filter and a packing stick that will allow you a clean smoke so every flavor of your flower can be enjoyed.
DIY CBD Hemp Flower Gifts – CBD Beeswax Salve
CBD flower salves are relatively easy to make commercially or to home-make it. There are three main ingredients needed:
- A natural wax such as beeswax;
- A therapeutic compound such as CBD
- A fatty oil base to carry the CBD effectively through the body.
Beeswax is sticky and dense so has to be melted down in order to mold other ingredients into it. The oil has to be used to “carry” the medicine in the salve so that it arrives at the place for healing. Many feel that coconut oil is the best option as it is a healthy fat and it has a high content of fatty acids. Fatty acids interact well with CBD.
You will need to purchase a CBD flower from a dispensary and then grind it. It is your choice which flower you chose but you will have the best results with a flower with the highest CBD content.
After the flower is ground extremely fine, it is seeped at 200 degrees for several hours in, let’s say for example’s sake, the coconut oil. This is the decarboxylation process so the temperature needs to be exact and for at least three hours because this is the point for the fatty acids to oil-latch onto the CBD and transport it to your body.
The beeswax will already be melted down so the oil solution with the ground CBD flower in it can be folded in. This creates your topical CBD salve. You can add essential oils if you care to such as lavender or peppermint to enhance the smell.
CBD hemp flower gifts will now include your very own massaging salve that joint that hurts so much, or the stiff arthritic knee and even the eczema that just keeps bothering you.
