Members of the cannabis community and industry alike already know the benefits of using Everclear to make clean tinctures and extractions. But did you know that Everclear can also be used for a plethora of other products, from things as far-reaching as a natural deodorant to giving happy hour an extra zing with delicious cocktails?

Home Sweet Home
Everclear can be used to clean literally every room in your home, be it to freshen mattresses, powerfully clean surfaces and add a brilliant shine to your stainless-steel appliances. It’s an essential addition to your home-keeping toolkit—and one that lets you unlock uncommonly clever uses and tricks at every turn.
Everclear is a fantastic cleaning product since it aids in the binding of essential oils to water. We all know that when oil and water are combined, they separate, which can be
problematic when adding essential oils to water-based cleaning solutions. But essential oils become more water-soluble when Everclear is added to the mixture. You’ll wonder how you ever survived without it.
Tinctures are traditionally made using high-grade alcohol to remove terpenes and cannabinoids from the plant’s foliage. If you’re thinking about making your own herbal tinctures, remember that the higher the alcohol, the better the trichomes and other compounds will dissolve.
Fun Fact: Before prohibition reared its ugly head, tinctures were the most popular form of cannabis consumption in North America—and for good reason, too. Tinctures offer an easy and discreet delivery method to consume cannabis and are regaining popularity for cannaseurs and the cannacurious alike to make at home.
High Proof. High-Quality. Higher Standards.
Available in 120, 151 and 190-proof options, Everclear grain alcohol is regarded as the world’s strongest alcohol. The high-proof content means it can be used in smaller quantities compared to other spirits.
Everclear is proudly made in the United States and available online and anywhere fine liquors are sold. Use the handy locater on their website to find your nearest store. And of course, use Everclear responsibly. With over twice the proof and potency of other clear liquors, it should be used more sparingly than other clear liquors in recipes or diluted before it’s enjoyed.
