DIY Weed-Infused Topicals: Wake ‘n Bake Sugar Scrub

Coffee grinds and sugar will get your skin glowing and your brain buzzing. Fresh coffee can be used if you prefer a fresher coffee aroma, but spent grinds will work as well, provided they are not still wet from brewing.

Yield: About 2 cups of scrub

Total Time: 10 mins


  • ¾ cup coffee grinds (use espresso grinds for sensitive skin)
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup Cannabis-infused olive oil or melted coconut oil


You can make your own cannabis-infused olive oil or coconut oil using one of these two recipes. If you are short on time and live locally, you can also purchase Olio, an already infused olive oil from any one of our locations; Shoreline, Greenlake (85th & Aurora), Ballard, or SODO.



1. In a bowl, mix together the coffee and sugar.

2. Add the infused oil, and stir. If you find the scrub is too rough or grainy, you can add some plain olive oil to make it a bit smoother.

This scrub can be transferred to a ball jar and will stay shelf-stable for 2 weeks or so. Pop it in the fridge for long term storage.
