CBD oil derived from marijuana plants (not hemp plants, but cannabis sativa varieties with more than 0.3% THC) are legal in some states and not in others (and the legalities may vary based on the situation such as if you have a medical need for it or not).
So, interpret all that as you like. This is not meant to be legal advice!
You can choose to use any carrier oil you like for the rest of the oil in your salve. To reap the other benefits of hemp, you could use a hemp seed oil for the rest of your oil content. The disadvantage of using hempseed oil is that it is a more delicate oil that tends to go rancid more quickly, especially when not stored in a cool, dry place. There are ways to extend the shelf life, though, if you don’t want to keep your salve in the fridge. One way is to add an antioxidant like Vitamin E at around 0.5% of the weight of the recipe. If adding in Vitamin E, you’ll want to do so as the salve is cooling as it is a delicate constituent itself.
Purium CBD oils have 1500mg in a 30ml bottle. That means that each ml of their CBD oil had has 50mg CBD.
It’s your salve and your choice! That said, I’ll give you a decent recipe which you can tweak to suit your needs with whatever materials you have on hand in your house.

Many people use CBD salves on their achy or stiff joints and muscles. Today I'll show you how to make a CBD salve using CBD oil that can be easily obtained in the United States and many other countries.
*You can use a combination of any oils equaling up to the desired amount you wish to make.
Remember you don’t have to limit yourself to the above oils, as there are hundreds of plant-based oils to choose from. This is just a quick list of common ones utilized in salves.
So, I’ve put together a short list of common herbs that you can use in your salve and how the herb is going to benefit you.
When I first heard the word salve, let’s just say I was confused. Here was this small tin filled with a body cream, but everyone was calling it a salve, which I also couldn’t pronounce for the life of me.
- 2 tsp peppermint
- 1 tsp orange
- 1 tsp lavender
This is where I got slightly annoyed. Sure, there are loads of recipes, just Google “salve recipes” and you’ll come up with a whole slew of them, but none explained why the herbs were good or how you could further mix ingredients to benefit your specific needs. After all, we are all different!
Once the mixture has cooled down to 37C/100F, you can add in the essential oil blend that you would like to use.
With the oils infused, we’re ready to start adding the beeswax, which is what provides the salve with its thicker consistency.
For example, if you were making a chest rub meant to penetrate and aid in respiration, the essential oil white camphor or eucalyptus would be the primary ingredient. However, you would also have harmonizing oils and herbs, such as peppermint, lavender, or herbs that aid in vasodilation.
