I am interested in how the cannibas is integrated in the coconut oil.

It's so much fun getting and sharing new information! I'm a kindred spirit, Jen! I really appreciate the info!

 

The flock has been on the cannabis treatment for three days, and dare I hope to say I think I notice a general improvement? The butt feathers are all dry, and no new discharge. I systematically gave every single one a butt wash today to remove any old white deposits so it will be easy to see if there's any new.

 

As to the question about chickens and THC, no, they do not experience any effect on their brains from it, and it's not transmitted into their eggs as far as I know. I've been giving my chickens cannabis to ingest for years on the chance it may be a natural deterrent to parasites, and I nor anyone else has gotten high from eating their eggs.

 

The other question was how does the medicinal properties of cannabis become infused in the coconut oil? You do that by cooking the two together. I make medicinal gel caps and pain relief salve by cooking the ground cannabis in the coconut oil at a low temperature for around 48 hours. I use a strain of indica cannabis for these purposes, high in CBD compounds and low in THC so there's very little or no high from it but maximum pain relief.

 

Since it was legalized in my state, I've been having a grand time growing it and making medicinal products which I've been giving away to all my friends, my own personal response to the price gouging commercial dispensaries where a half ounce of salve costs $50. Everyone chips in for supplies, I grow the stuff and cook it up or brew up tinctures, and no one has to pay out the nose for the best pain reliever there is. I'm also having terrific success relieving my restless legs syndrome symptoms with it. RLS is one of the most difficult nervous system disorders there is to try to find a successful treatment for. Epilepsy is another disorder that is being very successfully treated with cannabis oil.

 

What's been really exciting is treating my chickens with it. I had a sick day-old baby chick with a very painful, swollen vent, and she was in awful pain when she would have to poop. The cannabis coconut oil relieved her pain immediately and healed her little butt in just 24 hours. Unfortunately, her failure to thrive syndrome cut her life short after just three days.

Oh this is fantastic! And this is just with feeding it right?

Ah, the other idle thought I'd had was regarding the expense of treating chickens.

Applied topically?

This is very exciting! You are not only sharing knowledge, you are creating it!

Yes, the apparent improvement has occurred with mixing the dried crushed leaves with their fermented feed in their morning ration only. I'll continue this protocol for a full seven days and see what the result is.

 

Yes, the baby chick with swollen vent improved with only topical applications of cannabis infused coconut oil. It relieved her pain and also countered the inflammation. It also has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, so it may have worked on bacteria that may have also been present. How do I know it relieved her pain? Because she no longer was chirping frantically as she tried to poop.

 

I have a seven-year old hen who was having apparent leg pain. She was limping, and her leg was showing signs of bruising. After several days of the cannabis coconut oil salve, she wasn't limping, and the bruising has gotten better. It also has worked great on scaly leg mites.
