I've been fielding quite a few questions lately as to why I don't just make my medicines with hash oil like "everyone else does".
Listen guys, I'm not opposed to hash oil medibles at all. There's a lot of great medibles to be found that are made with hash oil. I just believe in my proccess and my patients are the proof!
I decided early on that i wanted to utilize whole plant medicine to get an entourage effect of all the cannabinoids working together for symptom control and relief.
And as far as utilizing solventless hash rather than hash oil in my medibles I just want to give you all that natural option. No chemicals were used to make the dry sift and bubble/water hash that I am using to make medibles like my kief jerky, lemon bars, extra strength gummys, nut butters and more. Not everyone is concerned with this but for those patients who are its a godsend to have access to meds that weren't chemically extracted.
Now don't get me wrong here. I am not opposed to hash oil personally. I use dabs for pain and I take hash oil Shattercaps myself. And from time to time I do offer hash oil medibles at the request of my patients.
So when it all comes down to brass tacks, its really just about choices and offering options for patients. I do things differently because variety is life's spice. If we all did everything the same there would be no options.
I hope this helps to clarify not only what makes THChristi's different but also why we arent confined to "the box" when it comes to making medicines.
Stay positive my friends! Remwmber a mind is like a parachute and works best when it's open!

I made this recipe about a month and a half ago and offered it for my patients then. The positive feedback has been so overwhelming! Patients are finding relief from everything from psoriasis to broken ankle pain with this formulation. Cannabis never fails to amaze me with its healing potential! The addition of the Emu oil adds to the healing benefit and absorption. Amazing!
You are going to be shocked at how easy this balm is to make!
Simply melt together 1 ounce of Emu oil, 1 ounce of beeswax and 4 ounces of cannabis coconut oil in a large heavy pot. When all your ingredients have melted together give a good stirring and pour the hot liquid into a clean jar or tin.
Leave uncovered until your balm hardens up.
Once the balm has cooled to a hardened consistancy cover with the lid.
Thats It! Like I said this is so easy but so effective!
I've intentionally left this unscented. If you wanted a scented version you could easily add some essential oil in the liquid phase. Just a couple drops would be sufficient.
