    Does anyone know how to make a massage oil out of the trimmings that you would normally save to make hash? I tried to use rubbing alcohol with the trimmings and the problem is that when I spray it on my skin, my skin gets very sticky. I want the THC to go into my skin and not just to stay on the surface and make my skin sticky.

    You need to infuse the cannabis with an oil/carrier oil, such as hemp oil or olive oil, so that it will be drawn/carried into the skin. It also needs to be heated at a low temp to activate/decarboxilize the thc so it will work.

    Hemp oil is one of the best carrier oils you will find, and it is great for your skin.

    The problem with alcohol is, it will evaporate, and leave the sticky THC/resins on your skin and not "draw" them or carry them into your skin.

    You will need a compound that can take chemicals across the skin barrier, such as DMSO, (dimethelsulfoxide). I would be very careful as to how much I used. It also will make your mouth taste like garlic. Make sure you only use it on **clean** skin and wash your hands before using it because whatever is on the skin will be carried into the bloodstream.
