Cannabis Infused Vapor Rub

DIY infused Vapor Rub stored in reused cannabis packaging.

I like to make my own skincare products these days and my own cannabis infused products as well, because I like to know what goes inside my products. Also, it’s cost efficient because these products are super expensive as the new legal cannabis market emerges.

I’m super big on sustainability and reusability.

Recycling Inspiration

It’s also really easy to just do it yourself. Plus, I’m super big on sustainability and reusability these days and in the new legal cannabis market, excess packaging is a major problem. I always feel like I am stuck with packaging, so I figured why not reuse the packaging for the containers of my own skincare?

That’s what inspired this blog. Also, I have been plagued with the flu for the first time in years.

Me and my honey had been really sick and I decided to make our own vapor rub because we are so flipping congested. It’s been outrageous. I cannot breathe. I can’t hear. I can’t smell, it’s just all of the above.

So hence, making my own vapor rub and reusing the cannabis packaging. I have been saving for a moment just like this. It has worked phenomenally. Better than I had even planned, considering the fact that I couldn’t smell it. But my sinuses started to drain, and I could feel the pressure relieving from my temples.

I was like, I could actually feel the menthol in it as well. And it was very soothing, so I figured it was working. I mean, I couldn’t smell it, but I remember putting the ingredients in so I figured, okay, it’s gotta be there.

Anyhow. Two days later, as my smell started to come back, I realized how wonderful it does smell and it’s really good medicine, I hope you enjoy this recipe and get some relief from it as well.

And that you reuse your cannabis packaging or whatever packaging you have in your house and practice reusing things rather than trying to even just recycle things because recycling is also a joke these days, especially here in California. I’m not sure if you’ve done any research about it. I’m sure plenty of you do a lot of recycling, thinking you’re doing the best you can for the environment.

But really honestly, the best thing you could do for this environment is to reuse your packaging. I will have links with further reading about the crisis of recycling in California and the cannabis packaging crisis as well in the new legal cannabis market due to regulations. It’s a lot of information that I don’t really want to go into here, but I definitely would like you to do your research.

I hope you guys survive this cold and flu season and continued to do your best to be as sustainable as possible for our beautiful planet.

☮️ Peace. 💟

How To Survive The Flu As a Daily Cannabis Smoker

cold and flu

Cannabis remedies for the cold and flu season when smoking is not an option.

The cannabinoids THC and CBD have been shown to have pain-relieving, sleep-inducing, and anti-inflammatory properties.

On your sick day when you’re home, wrapped in a blanket, cannabis may help reduce body aches, ease inflammation of the airways, and increase relaxation to help you sleep.

Since smoking is not an option and even though vaping can be less irritating, I have an amazing smoke-free DIY home remedy that is quick and easy!

There are plenty of tinctures, capsules, teas, and edibles that you can purchase at your local legal cannabis store, but today I want to share with you my DIY Cannabis Cold and Flu Remedy recipe.

First Prep a cannabis infused THC rich tincture ahead of time (or purchase one from your local cannabis retailer).

I make a reserve to keep on hand for times like these.

THC Rich Tincture

DIY Cannabis Cold & Flu Remedy

Quick and easy!
  1. One cup boiling water 
  2. Tea of your choice (optional)
  3. Slice of lemon
  4. One tablespoon Manuka honey
  5. Two droppers of cannabis THC rich tincture (or personal dose)

This remedy is super soothing on my throat and melts away my whole body aches and pains and aids in a restful sleep.

There are many companies out there that claim to be the end all be all of CBD and cannabis medicines. With the new booming legal cannabis market, how do you even know where to begin or who to trust? 

Well here I am! 👱‍♀️

I have done some research for you to help eliminate the many charlatans and misleading companies. Here are my top 5 cannabis wellness companies in California. Each company is state compliant and lab tested. Although, I recommend these companies, I highly encourage you to do your own research.

Hopefully you can bypass the flu altogether this season, but if not I wish you a quick recovery with the best rest and comfort possible!

Cheers to good health!
