Treat Yourself to a Cannabis Spa Experience At Home

Treat Yourself to a Cannabis Spa Experience At Home

This article originally appeared on MassRoots

More women are using cannabis to enhance their beauty routine with night creams and bath bombs loaded with THC or CBD. Since you can’t legally toke up in a spa yet, I wanted to do a little in home experiment combining cannabis and crystals to make my own Stoned Spa experience.

Not many people dispute the medicinal properties of cannabis, but Crystal Healing still has some convincing to do on a national level. Crystals have a high rate of vibration so they are utilized widely in modern technology. There are liquid crystal diodes in calculators and the very phone you may be reading this on. They also are used in credit cards, fiber-optic phone lines, and laser technology. Crystals literally power our lives. If we could see the energy fields that make up each and everything, including us, we would all be carrying around crystals to protect and amplify our energy fields. Crystals have their own energy fields and the Crystal Kingdom began on earth before the plant kingdom, so they have a deeper healing property than we have yet to fully discover. Plus who doesn’t love feeling a little witchy?

Using cannabis topicals on your skin can deliver many anti aging benefits by combating wrinkles, fine lines, and dark spots. Cannabinoids, like CBD, are also known to have amazing anti inflammatory properties. Now you can bring your own spa into your bathroom by making a simple trip to the dispensary and your local metaphysical store. To get the full spa experience you will of course need candles and some crystals. To take it to the next level, I like to use a Malachite Bath Soak which charges the water with the healing properties of the crystals. Malachite is an extremely powerful metaphysical stone and is used for deep energy clearing. So if you have had, “one of those days” you are going to make this your new night-time ritual.

Stoned Spa Experience supplies

  1. DIY Face Mask
  2. CBD Bath Bomb
  3. CBD Salve
  4. Joint or Bowl of your favorite strain

For the Face Mask:

  • 2 tsp. Activated Charcoal
  • 2 tsp. Tamanu Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Aloe Vera Gel from Plant or Organic from Store
  • 1 Tablespoon of finely ground cannabis flowers

For the Bath:

  • Dry Body Brush
  • Malachite Bath Soak
  • Heavenly Hash Bath By Mary Jane’s Medicinals
  • Bath Bomb of your choice (I love the CBD Lavender ones from Dank Essence)
  • A nicely rolled Joint, Blunt, Bowl

Time to relax

Mix the face mask ingredients into small bowl and stir until desired consistency is reached. Paint onto face avoiding eyes and hairline, letting mask dry while in the bath. Starting the bath water, add in the Malachite and Hash Bath satchel while the water is still running. While waiting for the bath to fill gently take the body brush and start gently dry brushing your skin.

Dry Brushing helps shed dead skin cells and encourages new cell renewal, leaving your skin more radiant as soon as you start brushing.

The Malachite will turn the water a mermaid green color. Step in and slowly start to dunk the bath bomb. I usually let it sit in my hand and float it around creating a circle. Then sit back and relax!

For an added healing element you can use a variety of mantras to dissolve blocks and let go of any unwanted tension. Being in a malachite bath is a PERFECT time to meditate and light up your joint! By now you are prob in a very relaxed state. If you are like me and enjoy mid afternoon baths, I would grab a sativa or sativa-dominant hybrid strain like Strawberry Cough, Durban Poison, Ghost Train Haze or Lambs Bread. Otherwise those night baths are a perfect pairing with an indica strain like Grand Daddy Purple, Violator Kush, G-13 or Bubba Kush. Once you are done with your smoke, gently lower your head into the bath soaking your hair and rubbing the charcoal and cannabis mask off. Keep a warm wash cloth next to you and gently wipe away any remaining pieces of the mask.

To complete your experience, pamper your body with almond oil or a CBD topical salve to give your skin that last little bit of glow. Store your extra mask, if any, in your fridge and use within 3 days.

How To: Gourmet Medicated Candy Bars

How To: Gourmet Medicated Candy Bars

Microdosing and Making Your Own Candy Bars

This is such a fun activity to do. With less than 5 ingredients you can make your own bad ass edibles.

First, you need to choose some molds. Amazon has some amazing molds like dragons, fairies, even some Star Wars stuff.

 

Next, making your own cannabis coconut oil is THE ideal way to consume edibles in my opinion. If you know what to do, it is perfect for someone who doesn’t go to the dispensary very much. At any dispo the price of one 100mg candy bar is an average of $13-20. for a candy bar! Twix are damn 2 for a $1 at the gas station! They are delicious though! Indulge all you wish. I love trying all the amazing gourmet edibles. If your a little frugal and want to spend that same amount but have full bars for days. Check out the recipe below

full-bars

Using Robyn Griggs Lawrence cannabis kitchen cook book which you can buy here and is also on our gift list, you can make your own cannabis coconut oil. If you want to make something you can eat the entire bar without the worry of saying, “I think I ate to much”. If you place 1-2 teaspoon in an entire recipe you will have an amazing high from small amount of cannabis.

I micro dose dinner all the time for my husband and I. I use such a small amount it’s perfect for when the kids are off to bed and we can lounge together on the couch.

So here is an easy recipe for making your own cannabis infused candy bars!
Ingredients
2 bags Candiquick Molding Chocolate (dark or milk)

Some sliced almonds, coconut flakes, pecans, marshmallows, any toppings you want

1 large glass bowl to place down in quart pan

1 double boiler

Place water 1/2 of the way full in a large quart pot and begin to boil the water. Turn heat down to medium and put bowl on top with morsels. Stir constantly until melted.

CAREFULLY pour chocolate into molds and place pecans, coconut flakes, and other toppings as you wish.

Store in freezer for 10 minutes or until chocolate easily comes out of mold.

Enjoy

STRAIN SUGGESTIONS

I suggest Aurora Indica a 15-20% THC content and is a cross between Northern Lights and Afghan. The bud is flavorful with notes of earthy pungent spice and pine. Or you can take big rips from your bong with Critical Kusha 100% Indica strain, cross of Critical Mass x Pakistani Kush with THC at 25% and 2.1% medicinal CBD. Earthy and piney notes, with a citrus bite. End of the night smoke. Be warned.

Enchiladas Supreme

 

Prep time (15 minutes)

Cook Time (15 minutes)

INGREDIENTS

What you’ll need:

4 Extra large tortilla wraps

1 packet Enchilada sauce

1 large heirloom Tomato

2 cups Spinach mix

2 cups shredded Chicken (optional)

1 can drained and rinsed black beans

1 large portabello Mushroom

1 large diced Onion

8 mini sweet Peppers (diced)

1.5 cup shredded cheese

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 400°

Combine onion, mushroom, and peppers in a large skillet over medium high heat. Cook until onions are transparent.

Place chicken/black beans, cheese, tomatoes, spinach and skillet mixture on a flat tortilla and roll the mixture up into a burrito shape.

Line a 11×13 baking dish with cooking spray and place enchiladas next to one another.

Pour enchilada sauce over entire dish. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over and place in oven for 15 minutes.

STRAIN SUGGESTIONS:

While you are waiting for the enchiladas to cook in the over, I suggest packing a bowl or roll a joint of a appetite stimulating strain. Cookies and Cream or Grand-Daddy Purp are great strains to help you get the munchies. As if you needed that!
