“Many have said of Alchemy, that it is for the making of gold and silver. For me such is not the aim, but to consider only what virtue and power may lie in medicines.” -Paracelsus
Cannalife Botanicals’ owner and Cannabis Alchemist Cara Long had a bad case of tendonitis and a dear friend gave her a cannabis balm to help with the pain. It worked the very first night trying it, and she didn’t wake up at 3am with pins and needles. The balm began to heal Cara’s inflammation from the inside out. At the time there were no dispensaries and when she tried to purchase it she could not find the product so she started the research and development of her own recipe.
During a retreat in the desert of San Louis Potosí, Cara began learning shamanic healing and traditional herbal medicine. She studied how to work with healing plants and create effective and powerful formulations.
Cara learned how to tune into the healing properties of herbs and essential oils that worked in synergy with cannabis which led to the first batches of Cannalife Botanicals. These were made in her apartment in Vancouver along side supportive friends and family who loved the result.
The knowledge and passion about alchemy and traditional herbal remedies is infused into all Cannalife formulations, along with respect, magic and a whole lot of love.
