Topicals and Salves with Kathy Furze-Spencer of Spencer Muscular Therapy.
Saturday May 19, 2018; 3pm to 5pm
Of the many methods to use cannabis, topical application is one of the safest ways to experience the benefits of this extraordinary plant. The distinctive euphoria or high associated with other methods of ingestion such as inhaling or through edibles is not experienced when applying cannabis infused topicals. It is a genuinely efficient way to receive the beneficial cannabinoids that our body requires for healing and homeostasis.
Topical cannabis application has become an increasingly popular option for those who wish to reap the assets without the psychoactive affect. CB1 and CB2 receptors are found in the skin, hair follicles, sweat glands and nerve bundles making topicals the perfect medium for treatment of many conditions including but certainly not limited to; pain, inflammation, burns, bacterial and fungal skin conditions, and improvement of skin elasticity.
In this two hour class we will cover:
· Why the skin is perfect for receiving cannabinoids through topical application
· What conditions and issues we can treat using topicals
· Where to begin when making your own salves and lotions – you’ve got the root, now choosing the medium you wish to infuse
· Oils, butters and waxes
· Choosing essential oils to compliment your product
· Recommended equipment and supplies you will need to get started
Resources for locating materials will be provided. This class is packed with information. Bring a notebook, your questions, an open mind and an open heart.
