Yeah, it's tedious alright. Ugh! Helps wrapping in cheese cloth when simmering in oil/water. I think you lose it's therapeutic magic if cooked at too high a heat.

We just use old stock or males for our balm, adding arnica and calendula both anti-inflammatory to our salve/balm.

Cannabis root do seem to include some possible health benefits, the alkaloids in its contents may be toxic when used in excess. If you are planning on using this root, it is worth consulting an expert or doctor before taking regular or large doses.....or cut it with oil, other ingredients.

Dried powdered roots can be used as topical, as well.

Arnica, to me, is far more beneficial....just in the use we've had in roots.

I rinse the roots, dry them on newspaper, chop them up. I put them in a crock pot and add coconut oil until covered. Cook on low 12-24 hours. I then strain and use this as a base for my topicals. I add some activated THC, essential oils, aloe gel, and natural bee's wax.

The most common benefit is pain relief in the feet after a long day.

Awesome, thanks!

That was my only current root ball for a few weeks. lol I sure hope I didn't burn the good stuff out. So no water, just oil, thanks ReikoX. This should save me quite a bit of 'washing' time with water rinses. lol

I'm only going for topicals at this point, so if anyone has more info on ingestion methods I'm all ears.

I guess I didn't burn all the medicine out, it actually works. I used it for two days on my hip and lower spine and my pain went down. It wasn't immediate, but it was noticeable a few hours later and the next day.

My first thought is it's like some of the other medicinal properties of cannabis. It works better when you use them every day.

Since I started with only about 3/4ths of a cup of oil, I diluted some with additional olive oil. Helped my feet too, so I'm going to go make more now. I've kept the pressed roots in the freezer and am doing a second, oil-only extraction today using a pressure cooker for about 20 minutes at 15psi. (At some point this will have to be done with measured portions. lol)

So glad you got relief. Did you add any canabinoids or was it only the roots? Any additional essential oils?

Just roots, and yes I added some lemon oil and frankincense to speed absorption. I applied some of the new mix a few hours ago and it's working well.

Without cannabinoids, it's non-regulated. This is very good right now.

Ok, so I finally got around to pressure cooking some roots.

I washed and then mostly dried them, then they went in the freezer for over a week. Pulled them out yesterday, chopped up a handful with scissors and put them in a jar with oil. I did not pack the roots in and used enough oil to cover them a few mm's deep.

Ok, so... WOW! No, seriously, this is rather amazing. It has completely removed most of my pain, leaving only a the deep pain in my hip. Verrry nice. I applied it last night around 8pm, and the pain is still much reduced. Very nice indeed.

About 45 minutes at 15psi, then slowly turning the heat down over 15 minutes before turning off completely.
The lid vacuum sealed and the jar sat on the counter until it cooled down.
I used a garlic press to get the oil from the root insides for the initial test.
Today I used a wheat grass, hand-crank juicer to press the rest of the roots.

Any suggestions on a simple, low waste method to filter out the root bits? I was thinking cheesecloth, but it would absorb too much oil?
