Cannabis Craftsmanship: How to Make Topicals With Cannabis Basics

March 15, 2016

Have you ever wondered how cannabis topicals and body care products are made? Interested in learning how to make them for yourself? We visited Cannabis Basics in Seattle, Washington to find out how.

Ah Warner, founder of Cannabis Basics, has been making body care products infused with hemp seed oil rich in Omegas 3 and 6 since 1995. Until recently her products were completely cannabinoid-free, but with the passing of Washington state’s medical cannabis laws in 1998 she began infusing the therapeutic and aromatic compounds from psychoactive cannabis into her award-winning products.

What Are Cannabis Topicals and How Do They Work?

Recently she invited us to her laboratory to show us how she makes her most popular product, The Remedy Pain Stick. It was the first product from Cannabis Basics to utilize CBD, THC, and THC-A along with the natural fragrances found in the cannabis flower in an effort to combat stress, pain, and inflammation.

Have you ever tried to make cannabis topicals or found them beneficial to your health? Check out the video for Ah’s step-by-step guide and share your experience in the comments section below.
