One of the most underestimated treatments- topicals containing cannabis– are often tragically overlooked. It isn’t uncommon to suggest a salve or oil to someone in serious pain and be looked at like you just suggested putting a band-aid on a gunshot wound; however, it is often followed with a look of surprised relief, especially when using the Green Lion Salve.
The Victoria Cannabis Buyers Club‘s version of tiger balm, the Green Lion Salve creates both heating and cooling effects. It can be a very effective anti-inflammatory, bring some significant relief to soft tissue pain and for most people, this happens almost instantly…it also happens to be very reasonable and easy to make at home.
Please note: Green Lion Salve is not to be used on broken skin, if you are pregnant, or breastfeeding.
