I recently tried a new topical application of cannabis to help me with my pain and muscle tension caused by my fibromyalgia and it was amazing.
What you need to get to have your own cannabis bath solution.
4 Cups of Water
60 rinsed soapberries aritha (These I could only find on-line)
4 TBS of freshly scrapped aloe. (Found a large leaf at my grocery store and had more than enough.)
The dried peal of an Orange. (After pealing an Orange I left the peals in an empty drawer to dry in a paper bag.)
15 Grams of ground decarboxilated Cannabis Flower (See my article on How and Why to Decarb Cannabis)
2 TBS of Lavender flowers (this I got at a natural food store.)
~2 TBS Olive Oil
1 cup of Course Himalayan Pink Salt
Bring 4 cups of water to a boil then add in the soapberry aritha, orange peals, and lavender. Cover and let sit overnight or at least 12 hours.
Melt Sunflower lecithin on low heat in a small sauce pan into olive oil. Once fully dissolved put decarbed cannabis into a jar and pour the olive oil with Sunflower lecithin melted in over the cannabis. Mix around until fully coated. Add a tiny amount more of olive oil if cannabis is not well coated. Let this sit overnight as well.
After you let it sit over night mix the two together. Add in 2tbs of fresh aloe and simmer on low for 45 minute or until about half the water has evaporated. Then let this sit until it only warm to the touch–strain. (Keep leftovers to make second less potent bath solution.)
This solution is perishable and needs to be refrigerated or frozen.
Mix 1 cup of coarse Himalayan Pink Salt with 2tbs of fresh aloe then mix 1 cup of bath solution into salt; add to a bath and enjoy.
This bath will relax your muscles and relieve pain like a topical cannabis, but with this infusion process it also has a slight psychoactive effect and may effect different people differently. The longer you are in the bath the more of an effect you will feel. Plan accordingly and know how this will effect you before trying to do anything else.
I personally loved this application method of using cannabis.

This recipe was originally found in “The Cannabis Spa at Home,” I made a few small changes, but highly recommend getting your hands on that book as it has many great recipes in it.
