Question:

Can we use creams made from cannabis leaves?

Answer

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Tabdeel-e-Mahiyah is the total transformation of an item whereby the original components maintains no properties of its former state and differs completely from it in application and qualities and due to this fact the name of the item also changes.

An example of this in the books of jurisprudence is given by ‘Allamah Ibn Aabideen  in regards to grape juice(Aseer) which is pure but when it is fermented and it changes into wine (Khamr) it becomes impure and thereafter it can further change into vinegar [Khal] which is pure again. (Raddul Muhtar, Vol 5, P320)

Regarding your question, if there was a total transformation whereby there are no extracts of cannabis in the cream then it will be permissible to use.
