Yo, what’s good fam? It’s ya boy Dan here, and today I’m gonna show you how to make your own organic cannabis face mask. That’s right, you heard it – we’re talking about the holy herb that’s not just for smoking, but can also work miracles on your skin. This dope DIY canna face mask is easy to make, and even easier to use. So let’s get started!
First things first – did you know that cannabis is an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant? That’s right, homie! And that means it can do wonders for your skin too. This 100% organic face mask will reduce fine lines and give your tired skin a lift. No need to throw stacks of cash at expensive brands when you can whip up your own rejuvenating face mask in minutes.
Now, let’s talk about the many healthy uses of the cannabis plant. For centuries, topical treatments of cannabis oils have been used for skin inflammations, rashes, bruising and dryness. And did you know that the pleasant mildly citrus aroma of hemp oil is indicative of its antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties? That’s some dope shit right there!
This face mask harnesses the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory powers of cannabis oil extracts. All extracts of the cannabis plant work equally as well when it comes to making your skin feel naturally luxurious. The skin is the largest organ in the body and is peppered with cannabinoid receptors. This means that the beneficial properties of cannabinoids can be directly absorbed by the skin.
Now, I know some of y’all might be thinking – “But Dan, isn’t THC psychoactive? Won’t it get me high?” Well, my friend, that’s where you’re wrong. THC itself is an anti-inflammatory and using a psychoactive oil extract won’t get you high when applied topically. When it comes to the skin, THC is a highly effective antioxidant rather than a clinically useful psychologically stimulating compound. Using this face mask won’t make you fail a swab at work.
So, let’s get down to business. Here’s what you’ll need to make your own cannabis face mask:
– 1 ripe organic avocado
– 1/4 cup of cannabis oil of your choice
– 2 teaspoons of spirulina powder
– Several drops of fragrant essential oil (Chamomile, lavender and tea tree are all very skin friendly)
– Large make-up application brush or shaving brush that you don’t mind getting clogged with organic face mask
– Blender or food processor
Step 1: Slice open the avocado and remove the pit. Scoop out the meat into the food processor.
Step 2: Add in your cannabis oil of choice.
Step 3: Add the spirulina powder. If you only have tablets crush them with a mortise and pestle first or they may harm the processor blades. Alternatively, soak tablets in a small amount of water until they are dissolved or gelatinous.
Step 4: Combine ingredients in the food processor until they are completely emulsified and the mix looks like green cake frosting.
You could probably eat this mix if you wanted to – spread it on toast or use it as the base for a guacamole. But trust me, fam – it would be impossibly bland though. Spread on your face is a completely different story. This funky green paste is brimming with skin friendly essential oils, vitamins, omegas, essential fatty acids and lipoproteins.
Before application, steam your skin to open the pores ready to receive their cannabis therapy. Wipe your face over a number of times with a hot moist towel (not hot enough to burn though). Or boil some water and fill a heat proof bowl. Drape a towel over the back of your head as you lean over the steamy bowl. Don’t dip your face in the scolding water though – just enjoy the mini steam room for ten minutes.
Before your skin cools down too much, apply the face mask. With your fingers is mushy fun. With a brush there’s no cleanup – just apply, kick back and enjoy.
After 20 minutes, rinse with warm water to reveal noticeably fresher skin.
And there you have it – your very own organic cannabis face mask! So go ahead and treat yo self to some natural cannabis beauty therapy – your skin deserves it!
