Sandra Hinchliffe’s, The Cannabis Spa at Home: How to Make Marijuana-Infused Lotions, Massage Oils, Ointments, Bath Salts, Spa Nosh, and More

Novice Rating: ★★★ (5 stars) - If you are new to making home remedies, this is the book for you.  The Quick Start Guide can get you going immediately and the author guides you expertly through learning how to do the high end stuff.

Veteran Rating: ★★★☆ (3 1/2 stars) - If you happen to be an artisanal home soap and spa pro already, this book will give you specific insights into using cannabis in your own recipes.


This is the second book from this author, under her original pen-name, S. Hempista.  Check out that book too.

Just released (10/7/2015), a very updated and improved version of her previous book.  It has been upgraded from a simple self-published book to a tidy 7.5” x 7.5” hardcover book with copious amounts of photography.

The book is designed to be inclusive and has a “Quick Start Guide” in the front for those that want (or need) to dive in right away.

The book then ramps you up into some very high end artisanal recipes gently and easily.  The development from questions through her hempista.com website really come through.

This page will update as recipes from this book are tested out fully with a guinea pig.  The recipes are so similar to her previous book, I want to get fresh eyes on this new book and have them try making the recipes without previous experience.

If you are looking for a good cannabis lotions and ointments book, head over to Amazon and place an order.
