An item every stoner should have is a grinder, of course. Yes, I am preaching to the converted! But the better your buds, the sooner your grinder becomes sluggish to the point where you can't use it anymore. It stucks and the all the fine crystals stick with the grinder. It's time to clean it! But how without wasting those superb crystals I just mentioned? No worries, here's my solution …
What you need:
- Small pot
- Milk or any drink with fat will do
- Your dirty grinder
- Vanilla, chocolate, banana or whatever you would like to add for better taste.
Ok, what do I do now?
Everybody knows that THC is liposoluble. If you want to produce some #edibles, first thing you do is heating some fat (butter, oil, whatever), for those fine cannabinoids to dissolve in it. This procedure is called decarboxylation. Now you've got some thrilling fat, fortified with THC. When cleaning your grinder, you profit from exactly this fat solubility.
Dismantel your grinder.
Take some milk, oat milk, almond milk, rice milk … whatever you use. Main thing is that it contains fat.
Pour it into your smallest pot and place it on your cooker.
Heat the milk, but don't let it boil.
Put your grinder into the hot milk
Stay with it. Everybody knows how easy milk boils over. Stir it every once in a while.
Take out the parts of your grinder that appear clean. The milk stays where it is and you stay with the milk.
Use a cotton swab or a tooth brush to do the final cleaning. When there's no more on your grinder, let some water run over it and dry it afterwards.
Be patient! The longer you wait, the more THC dissolves into the fat. Minimum should be 15 minutes.
When you're done, your grinder looks all new again. You can put something into this milk or use it for cooking. I always use some raw cacao and combine it with a little cacao ceremony. If you have never heard about shamanic cacao ceremonies, here you can find more information.
