A few years ago I received a desperate email from one of my readers, an elderly gentleman who had found relief from his debilitating arthritis from a commercial salve. The problem was, on a fixed income he could not afford the $60.00 a jar price tag. Especially when he could easily go through a jar and a half per week.
The high price of topicals was an echoed pain point when I did a survey of my readers asking them what online course I should pursue next after launching my Easy Cannabis Cooking for Home Cooks course. The overwhelming winner was DIY topicals.
It turns out my readers and viewers were loving everything about the topical cannabis experience, except the prohibitive price tags that came with it.
I too had personal experience with this after I found out late one night in a hotel room in a strange city just how effective topicals can be. I was jolted awake from a sound sleep by painful legs cramps. This happens to me every month or two, but this particular night I did not have my prescription muscle relaxants with me. I did, however, have a jar of Joy Organics CBD salve.
I did not think it would work but I was desperate and massaged the salve into my cramping muscles. Within in 10 minutes the cramps were entirely gone. WOW.
I have since repeated that several times with the same results, which is great. But what was not so great was the fact that a small jar of the salve costs $90.00!
Yes the Joy Organics salve is terrific and it definitely works, BUT at $90.00 a jar, I could easily understand the pain of my reader trying to afford medicine that works on a fixed income. Even without living on a fixed income, $90 for a jar of salve is more than I can afford.
And so the idea for my DIY Marijuana Topicals online course was born. It took me a year longer to produce than I originally planned on, but I wanted to get it right. After all people’s health and well being depended on it.
It turned out very little information about marijuana topicals is available, and like everything marijuana, so much of the information that is out there is not accurate.
Likewise, I had to sift through a ton of garbage to get to the facts. It was not unlike when I first learned to cook with marijuana. And in a lot of ways, topicals are like edibles for your body (but without making you high)!
I did TONS of experimenting with friends and neighbors acting as willing guinea pigs. And they reported ASTOUNDING results from the topicals I made. Pain, even severe neuropathic pain relieved! Muscle spasms gone! Itching and rashes, disappeared. WOW.
Introducing the quickest and easiest way for you too to get the same results:
Before I created this course learning to make marijuana topicals involved a lot of trial and error, or a lot of time searching around on the internet trying to piece together information and hoping that the information you got was accurate and written by someone who knew what they were talking about.
This is one of the biggest challenges facing cannabis consumers today, no matter what you are trying to learn about marijuana.
Now all you have to do is watch a few videos and start making your own healing cannabis infused salves, body butter, lip balms, massage oils, bath soak and bath bombs, wrinkle serums -- everything you see in the photo below and more!

Now I know what you are probably thinking. I don’t know the first thing about making skincare products. You might also think that making your own healing marijuana skincare products would be difficult and time consuming. That’s what all those companies selling $99 jars of salves want you to believe.
But the truth is, it’s astonishingly simple. Far easier even than cooking with marijuana (not that cooking with cannabis is rocket science either).
After watching the lessons in this course, you could be whipping up some batches of healing cannabis infused skincare products by this evening.
The instructions and formulas are that easy, and many use ordinary ingredients you already have in your kitchen.
If you can read a recipe, measure out a few ingredients, and turn on a stove, you have all the skill necessary to make healing cannabis infused skincare products.
Is your skin aging? And presumably everyone reading this will say yes to that question. Then the answer is yes.
But seriously, beyond the pure beauty aesthetics of what all natural skin care products infused with the healing powers of cannabis can do for your appearance in the way of reducing lines, wrinkles, and dryness, if you answer yes to any of these questions, you can probably benefit from topical applications of marijuana:
People with these conditions and many, many more are reporting astounding results from using topical applications of marijuana with active THC, CBD, and sometimes both!
And circling back to my first question about aging skin, the truth is no matter how old you currently are, you are getting older. And so are the people around you. You and your friends likely have similar issues as you age and if you are caring for an aging loved one you already know the challenges ahead.
Once you harness the healing and anti-aging benefits of topical marijuana, you will not only know how to best use it to improve your own health and quality of life, you will have the ability to help the people you love improve theirs:

In fact, this bonus course starts with the compelling lesson “How to Win Any Argument About Marijuana.”
This bonus mini-course is an excerpt from my "Crash Course in Marijuana."
Cheri Sicard was a professional food writer, recipe developer, and cooking instructor long before cannabis entered her life, so it was only natural she started cooking with marijuana after her doctor recommended it for a chronic condition. At the time there was little good information available so she penned The Cannabis Gourmet Cookbook, which took some of her most popular recipes and turned them into tasty medibles consumers can easily make at home. Soon Southern California medical marijuana dispensaries and event producers were calling on her to teach their patients about cooking with cannabis.
Cheri’s second cannabis book, Mary Jane: The Complete Marijuana Handbook for Women, released in 2015, is a great general guide to marijuana and the cannabis lifestyle that has helped scores of women come out of the cannabis closet. Cheri's best-selling newest book The Easy Cannabis Cookbook was released to both public and critical acclaim in 2018.
Cheri’s articles and cannabis recipes can be found in High Times, Kitchen Toke, Civilized, Cannabis Now, Herb, and more.
If you use topicals, this course puts money in your pocket!
Consider the case of the elderly gentleman I referenced earlier on this page. His escalating arthritis pain was responding well to the commercial topical marijuana salve he was using. In fact, he said it was about the ONLY thing that had helped him.
BUT, he was going through a jar and half per week. At $59.95 a jar, a year’s supply would cost him $3117. 40!
His fixed income earnings simply were having a hard time keeping up with his arthritis’s demand (that arthritis can be a DEMANDING little bitch).
However, using just a few simple ingredients paired with some cannabis, he is now able to make a pain relief salve in a comparable dosage for a fraction of the cost. $16.80 per jar to be exact (and that is buying $5.00 a gram dispensary weed, he could lower his costs further by buying in larger volume or by using one or more of the low cost strategies outlined in the course).
The money he saves on salves alone put over $2200 per year back in his pocket. And he saves even more on the arthritis bath soaks his wife was using. Those used to cost them $15 each retail, but now they make them for about $2.50.
This couple now has enough money left over to go out dancing again, something they’d been cutting back on because of the cost and also because of arthritis pain. And while my reader admits he doesn’t have quite the speed and agility he did in his 30s, the salve is nonetheless helping him keep his moves smooth on the dance floor.
Topicals Dosing: Less Can Be More (Money in Your Pocket)
I am encouraging this man and all my students (and you too) to play with the dosages in their homemade topicals. There are classes in the course that cover topicals dosing in more detail, plus handy dosage calculators that do all the math for you.
You may or may not actually need as much as what is in the commercial topicals you currently buy.
One of the first students to take this course after it was released to the public wrote to specifically thank me for the dosing classes. They helped him to discover that his pain responded just as well to his homemade salve made at HALF the dosage of the commercial salve he used to buy. That immediately cut his cannabis ingredient expense in half.
Say it again kids: "Why use more if you respond to less?"
The fact is, this course MORE than pays for itself with the very batch of topicals you make.

Don’t waste any more time, money, or marijuana. With the information you gain today, you could be whipping up a batch of beneficial topicals by tonight!
I’m making topicals for my husband, an Army veteran, who suffers from chronic Neuropathic pain. I made Cheri’s Multi-Use Cannabis and Lavender Salve. It really works! It helps with pain relief and it smells lovely too. I was thrilled to hear back from Cheri herself when I had a question.
I had to write and thank you for your courses. It has also been extremely comforting to have many of my own notions and research validated. It can feel so isolating to search and filter through all the conflicting (and lack of) information and I feel so much more confident and prepared to forge ahead with the tools and information from your courses!
You will get an email with an access link. Click that link and you can immediately start the lessons and access all the videos, the 60 plus tested topicals formulas (recipes), and the course resources and handouts.
That first email you get is not a form letter! It is actually from me. Likewise you will have my email address. If you have a question, just use that email to ask and I will do my best to answer. Go ahead. Try it out. Ask me anything (well OK, most anything and definitely anything about cannabis topicals). Sad as it may seem, this seems to be a BIG difference between me and some of the other cannabis trainings available. My students always seem shocked when they not only actually get an answer directly from me (unless I happen to be traveling in which case it's from my associate), they almost always get it in a day or less (if I happen to be at my computer when the question comes in, almost instantly).
I would NEVER want you to be unhappy! Likewise, the course comes with a full 30-day money-back guarantee. If you don’t like the course, if you don’t like topical marijuana, if you don’t like me (I so DO hope you like me, but even if you don’t), you can ask for your money back. That’s right you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
It doesn’t matter. Once enrolled, you get LIFETIME access to the course, including any future upgrades (and fair warning when we do big upgrades on courses, the price usually goes up, but once enrolled you don’t ever have to worry about that). You can access the course anytime it is convenient for you. Watch the lessons as many times you like, as often as you like. And since the course is broken down into short little lessons that are super easy to learn, even people with EXTREMELY busy schedules can work their way through it. You could even watch a lesson a day on your coffee break, should you choose.
No. You probably have most of what you need already and a trip to the drug store, health food store, or supermarket can provide all or most of the rest. Which is not to say that you can’t choose to buy a bunch of expensive carrier oils and essential oils. And while the course goes into these and how to use them, it also always suggests less expensive substitutions and alternatives. As to tools, most kitchens already have everything that is needed. I suggest some handy but optional tools, but in their basic forms, marijuana topicals are pretty simple to make, despite what the corporations selling them want you to believe. It does not even take expensive marijuana to make great topicals. You can use lower priced offerings and can even use parts of the plant that might otherwise be discarded!
Surprisingly no. Infusing carrier oils is the most time consuming part, but most of that time is passive and you can be doing other things while it happens. Once you have infused oils, the actual making of the topicals products takes mere minutes in many cases and none of the 60 plus formulas included with the course take over half an hour to make.
Not at all. If you can read a recipe, measure out ingredients, and turn on a stove, you already have the skills it takes to make all the formulas in this course. The most complicated of any of the formulas are the bath bombs, but even those will take you under 30 minutes to make and are not difficult. And the course includes actual demonstrations of me making each type for formula, so you will never have to guess if you are doing it right.
YES! Over 60 formulas are included for bath bombs, bath soaks, healing salves and balms, along with massage oils, body butters, lotion bars, and speed sticks for all kinds of conditions and ailments. You’ll also get formulas for lip balms, wrinkle serums, natural sunscreens, and even sexual lube, ALL infused with the incredible therapeutic powers of THC, CBD, or a full spectrum of ALL the plant’s healing cannabinoids. Not only do you get all of my personal favorite cannabis skincare formulas, after taking this course, you will have the knowledge to start creating your own!
This course pays for itself with the first batch of topicals you make. The bottom line is, putting the knowledge you gain in this course to work will substantially add to your bottom line, compared with buying commercial topicals products. Not only that, you’ll be making superior products custom designed for your individual needs regardless of your age, skin type, or reason you are using the topical. For the price of this course, you couldn’t even buy 2 jars of quality marijuana salve, but with the knowledge you gain, you can be making the products you need for the rest of your life.

I hope you will join our like-minded community of cannabis topicals enthusiasts because I know how profoundly topical cannabis changed my life.
Unlike a lot of people, I came late to the marijuana party. Other than the occasional toke at a social gathering, it did not become a regular part of my life until I was in my late 30s and my doctor recommended it for a chronic nausea problem. Well, it worked for that plus a whole lot of other issues that, at the time, I didn’t realize I was taking it for.
Lifelong gastrointestinal issues completely faded away and I was able to ditch a shopping bag of pharmaceuticals including asthma medicines and antidepressants. It turns out the late great Dennis Peron (the father of medical marijuana in the US) was right when he said that “All use is medicinal.”
Cannabis profoundly changed my physical and mental health. I truly believe it can do the same for most people, IF they understand how to best use it for their needs. And to be sure, everyone’s needs are different.
I created this course because I wish I had something like when I first started learning about cannabis. It would have saved me A TON of time, money, and frustration. But I am proud of the fact that it is doing just that for so many others now.
I regularly get emails from students who have used the knowledge gained in this course to change their lives too, and that warms my heart. They have found relief from pain, from spasms, from itchy skin disorders, from monthly menstrual discomfort, and so much more.
It truly is astounding how therapeutic cannabis used outside of the body can be. Discover for yourself!
