Excellent, ReikoX! Thanks! Yes, I buy cheese cloth 80-90 grade on eBay. Most of the time, I can wash it out, use it again for balm/salve. Sure beats using strainer for fine particles.

The burrito method of wrapping up material....definitely a time saver. I'm all about ergonomic ANYTHING due to my own arthritis issues!

Plan to make a batch and see which my client likes better. Adding anti inflammatory oils certainly helps, too...frankincense, calendula with arnica. Awesome blend!

Because of the layers of skin,it can be absorbed, but a barrier from entering blood vessels.

Some things absolutely absorb right into our bodies, especially if there are other chemicals present that increase the absorption rate. That being said, most things don’t absorb directly into our bloodstreams through the skin, though they can often penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin.

I'm wondering what happened to my post? Perhaps I walked away without finishing it. Hrmm...

I use lavender oil and other oils which 'do' penetrate to the blood vessels. I even linked a study on blood samples over time, after the use of a massage oil. Interesting stuff.

So, for those people I know with 'drug-testing' jobs like state/federal government jobs, having something which won't show any THC is great. That, and I completely skip the flowering process. The last batch was made with vegging roots, and it works GREAT.

Yes, that part is awfully time consuming, but poured water with root-ball particles and dirt into bulbs and compost. Nice being able to skip that part!

Normally my bonsai plants would be in hydro, but I'm in limbo right now and everything is in soil. Hydro, bonsai cannabis plants grow so many roots it's ridiculous. Quick rinse and into the dehydrator will be just the ticket.

It's amazing how quickly and effectively this oil works.

I've wondered about whether the roots are medicinal but as far as i can tell it may be just placebo, what organic compounds have been isolated from the roots that have been found to be beneficial exactly? Please tell.

Did you read the thread and possibly listen to the podcast? Here's the link from post #5 to the research paper discussing what you're looking for.

So far, the oil from a single plant works about as well as from a few different strains. If there are differences, they're too subtle at this point for my current awareness and lack of experience. hehe

I made a batch last night from a single root ball. 200ml of oil had 10ml Lemon and 20ml Frankincense added. Works great, but I want to change it closer to 3:1, due to the lemon being a bit much. I'm out of Frankincense now. lol

I've been using it on my hip every day for over a week. It definitely increases the pain reduction over time. Without the inflammation, it isn't making itself worse all the time and I'm actually beginning to forget about it occasionally. Slept like a rock last night, without waking for a minute and having to roll over or change position once. Rock on!

Sound good.

Arnica and calendula, for many, work better than frankincense.
