CBD Relief Roller
It seems that there isn't ever a week where we haven't been in need of some kind of relief, whether it's from tense or sore muscles, a headache, itchy bug bites, a rash... so we started exploring natural remedies to ease the pain.

About the Recipe
We find that keeping things simple helps us identify what's working well for us! With just a few ingredients, you can easily experiment with switching things out to see what works best for you. Try another carrier oil in place of the fractionated coconut oil such as jojoba oil or sweet almond oil, experiment with other essential oils (remember: never wear a citrus oil in the sunlight; it can cause burns!) and play with the amount of CBD you use until you find a combination that provides relief for your particular needs.
5-20 mg CBD (we recommend Rosebud’s 350mg tincture, where 1 drop = .5mg CBD or Papa & Barkley Essentials’ Tincture)
2 drops peppermint essential oil
fractionated coconut oil (or another carrier oil such as almond or jojoba oils)
dark glass roller
Mix ingredients in small roller
Roll on sore muscles, itchy bug bites, temples, and more for quick relief!
Try adding or substituting Lavender or Panaway oils
Store away from heat and light

Papa & Barkley Essentials Hemp Drops CBD Tincture
If you'd like to enhance your relief roller with cannabinoids, you can add an available tincture such as Papa & Barkley’s Hemp Drops.
This tincture is a whole plant extraction made with hemp grown in Colorado and carried in fractionated coconut or MCT oil. It is a lipid infusion, meaning that it uses no solvents in the extraction process and retains a full range of phytonutrients, including all of the plant’s cannabinoids and terpenes. A full dropper of their 450mg bottle contains 30mg of CBD, and the dropper has measurements on the side for easy dosing.
