Looking for sustainable, natural and affordable CBD topicals?

You can make your own lotions at home in minutes!

In fact, using CBD oil and just a few simple ingredients, you’ll have your own homemade creams in no time.

We’ve rounded up 5 of our favorite CBD topical recipes. Follow these simple steps to create your own beauty line.

Note: All of these recipes use CBD oil and therefore do not contain THC. However, you can easily incorporate THC if you choose to! Swap the CBD oil for a high CBD strain and decarboxylate your flower to make cannabis coconut oil. Keep in mind this process typically takes 4-5 hours.
