Historically Cannabis has been around for medicinal use for a long time! Tinctures, salves, oils, teas...but did you now that it can treat wounds and skin issues? Certain cannabinoids (components of the cannabis plant) can destroy or slow the growth of bacterial and viruses?
There are many reports of successful treatments of slow-healing wounds with cannabis infused honey and infused oils/salves.

Tips for applying honey on wounds
If you’re applying honey on wounds at home, here are some general tips for application.
Always start with clean hands and applicators, such as sterile gauze and cotton tips.
Apply the honey to a dressing first, then apply the dressing to the skin. This helps to cut down on the messiness of honey when applied directly to the skin. You can also purchase honey-impregnated dressings, such as MediHoney brand dressings, which have been on the market for several years. An exception is, if you have a deep wound bed, such as an abscess. The honey should fill the wound bed before a dressing is applied.
Place a clean, dry dressing over the honey. This can be sterile gauze pads or an adhesive bandage. An occlusive dressing is best over honey because it keeps the honey from seeping out.
Replace the dressing when drainage from the wound saturates the dressing. As honey starts to heal the wound, the dressing changes will likely be less frequent.
Wash your hands after dressing the wound.
If you have any questions about applying honey to your wound, follow up with a physician.
