Here's a frugal tip that will help you squeeze every last bit of therapeutic benefit from your cannabis.  Clean your grinder WHILE making a cannabis pain relief rub!


Yes.  Making a DIY cannabis pain relief rub takes no extra time.  But you're left with something useful at the end, besides just a clean grinder. Not that a clean grinder isn't great.

How to Make a Weed and Alcohol Rub 

All you have to do to make a pain relieving weed and alcohol rub is to place your sticky grinder parts in a small cup, cover with 90% or higher isopropyl alcohol.  Just like you usually would when cleaning your cannabis grinder. 

Let sit for an hour or so.  

Remove and grinder and rinse under hot water.  Use the leftover cannabis pain relief rub to ease the pain of sore knees or elbows, hands, etc.

Make Edible Cannabis Tincture While Cleaning Your Grinder

If you substitute food grade alcohol you can even use the grinder cleaning liquid an edible or sublingual tincture.

But ONLY if you use food-grade, NEVER ingest isopropyl or rubbing alcohol!!!

True the cannabis has not been decarboxylated, but even in its raw state, THC-A, CBD-A and other cannabinoids still have plenty of medicinal effects.

Try this next time you clean your grinder.  Waste not, want not!

This simple weed alcohol rub is the easiest of all cannabis topicals to make.
