So The Tincture Great? Makes What
Add lecithin if you want your edibles to be more potent. Put it in the freezer. It wilk never freeze if it is high in alcohol like everclear and being ice cold takes the bite out of everclear.
You can also make jello shots with it. I have MB as well. I am told that using distilled water prior to ethanol and heat extraction will remove the chlorophyll. Frankly I believe the chlorophyll and other terpenes do have a bit of a taste….
Yikes I know what you mean, the burning is terrible from the Everclear. Cranberry juice, regular or light. Drink the juice and let it sit on your tongue for a bit before swallowing. What I do with making tincture is put the ground up decarboxylated flower in the jar and fill it to the top, packed in to the top of the jar, and Then fill with the alcohol. I put it in a brown paper bag in the closet.
Shake it everyday for 3 months and its almost done, strain with cheesecloth lined strainer and then your done. Put in BROWN bottles, as its important to protect it from light, the strength of the cannabinoids deteriorate in light.
Super easy to make and effective. With the un-decarboxylated tincture, his seizures were reduced to per day. I taught them how to make it themselves and got them growing their own now too.
Son is doing well. I hope that helps, glad to assist in ANY way. I also make salve and it works quite well. This may be the last yr I grow its such a pain in the ass.
Someone HAS to be here at all times. I wish there were a way to PM you and get your email, I could send directions on salve too. Hello I just read your post on leafy. Thanks for the info it is a blessing to find someone who is willing to share truthful info without a price tag. I have been looking for different means to help treat my elderly family member who suffers from chronic pain due to bone cancer. As an alternative to becoming addicted to norco, I have suggested using salves and oils to help alleviate the pain.
If you could be so kind as to post directions on salve, I would greatly appreciate it. Any and all info shared is a blessing. I am sorry to hear about your relative, its hard to watch them suffer so.
Salve has been a God send for me. Strain both oils thru a cheesecloth lined strainer and set aside, protecting from light. Or the Avocado oil, OR grapeseed oil, both have a higher break point, but more expensive.
I wish you luck and let me know how it turns out. I go thru it like crazy, my friends line up for it. It soaks in quickly along with all those good herbs. Wish there was a place to sell leaf or trim for this purpose, but like you said, most are in for the profit not the benefits. My first batch cost about 35 for all the ingreds, but I have enough now to make lots. You can find containers here https: Amazon has them too. You said you were an RN. HI Erin, Has he ever tried vaping? Not real fancy, but it may be an option.
I would be happy to help in any way I can, but need more info. Good luck with the gummies, sounds good. Did you need the recipe for the salve? Its super easy to make and my friends keep coming back for more, and I think it works very well for pain.. Melt beeswax in double boiler, once melted add shea butter and melt. Add inifused oil and remove from heat and add essential oils lemon balm and lavender essential oil drops each have containers ready and pour into oz containers, let cool.
Good luck, let me know how it goes. Hi I would love to know about making the salve too. I have arthritis and I am too young for this constant pain even when do nothing.
ITs really super easy to do. If you have a crock pot it makes it easy to infuse your oil. Once you infuse your oil, I uses this ratio. This will make about 5 2oz containers. The orig recipe uses less shea and wax but it was way too oily and goopy for me. IT seems to absorb better w. Ill try to put up the Pin where I got the orig recipe. Best wishes and hope it helps. Its nice to rub on your hands after gardening too.
Absorbs best right after the shower. So the lemon extract is proof? Just about as strong as everclear.. I am looking forward to trying this. Okay, I want to treat Chronic Pain from Fibromyalgia. I just made a batch of tincture with Everclear using 32 grams of high quality flower buds and mls of Everclear. I used 15 grams of flower harvested late for a high CBD content, and 17 grams of flower buds harvested early for a high THC content.
I just put it in the freezer yesterday and will wait a few weeks. I want to know more about the proportions — how much bud to how much Everclear? And a few years ago when my husband and I were in Amsterdam, we split a Cannabis Brownie. My husband got really high, me? When I make tincture I use trim, the sugar leaf My understanding is that it has higher CBD than the bud, but thats just what I read, not here so I use the trim for tincture with really great results.. As for proportions, I fill a large canning jar with the trim, half gal and then fill to cover the plant matter with with vodka or everclear.
Then put it in a dark place in brown paper bag and let it marinate for months. Be sure and date the top…lol Protected from light and shake it every few days I dont grind it, as its already without stems, and fine enough. If you dicarboxylate your canna first, it can activate the THC converts thc-a to thc more cerebral effect rather than just the CBD.
You may not be ingesting high enough dosage of THC to get the cerebral effects your looking for with a high tolerance, you can try increasing the dose slightly until you find a dose that works. I had that once, but got over it with juicing daily, good nutrition and anti inflammatory diet, if you havent tried that yet.
It takes allot of patience to get thru it all. I just made my first batch using the master wu recipe with the water bath method. However,I just realized I made a big error, need to know how to fix it. I used 8x the alcohol! Instead of 2 oz, I did It seems it would take quite some time to cook off the extra liquid. I do have enough to nearly double it. Get the Nova or Lift Decarboxylator by Ardent!
Why they would do this is beyond me, especially when the fixed liner within is made of stainless steel: I expect more from a company that is making devices intended to be used by medical users the Lift is supposedly for recreational users, but according to the company is exactly the same as the Nova…. Huge waste of money. Why not line it with parchment paper then? Also, the Nova and Lift are the same thing. After that all you need is a double boiler; add the plant material and butter and simmer at around degrees F for 1 hr; stirring every 15 minutes; cool, strain, and ready to use for any of your favorite receipts that require butter.
Save your money on the devices. I fill a mason jar with shake, then fill to the top with the alcohol. Tincutre turns out quite well. All depends on how strong you want it. My very first time using cannabis was in a Rum based tincture. But i came back to tibctures.
Each drop has 2. I microdose because i hate being high. Another reasin i make my tinctures so potent is that alcohol is dangerous to the liver and brain cells. So i consume the least alcohol possible.
Make a hot cup of coffee, tea, soup, oatmeal, or even a hot piece of bread. Add my drops of tincture and theres an instant edible. It can be so confusing. Any help is really appreciated. Thanks for the information, appreciate it. Never tried tincture or pills, only smoked it, but since that is all our state of Florida allows, right now…. I once tried the method of gently heating my tincture in a water bath, nothing was touching the surface of the pot I was using.
Scared the living hell out of me. Now I understand why people are critical of Leafly itself….. The Nova is still a piece of junk until Ardent redesigns it. No amount of comment-removal will change that.
Removing critical, legitimate comments just ensures that more charlatans in this new industry are going to be ripping people off. I have a problem with the decarbox process because of the odor issue. Is there any way to do the infusion first and then decarbox the tincture afterwards i. If anybody knows of one with a lab grade glass or a stainless steel canister, please let me know. Also, the comment about Everclear being made from corn and GMO is somewhat unclear. Otherwise, what else is the next best thing besides just proof vodka?
You can have tincture so strong that 9 drops has 25 mg cannabinoids or so weak you have to drink 90 mls 2 shots to get tye same dose. I followed the Modern recipe. I used just enough alcohol to cover the plant matter.
I bought some medicinal tincture and I really want to make cookies. Hi Christopher, if you are making 12 cookies, use 12 x your daily tincture amount. I add full extract oil to coconut oil to use in place of butter and this works well. Say 3 grams of oil to one cup coconut oil or clarified butter, heat and mix. So basically heat the oil tincture and butter together, then mix with all ingredients and bake? I use tequila in my recipe — it takes great with the weed.
That way I can have a tasty drink to sip on instead of a tiny little tincture drop. Way more pleasant to me! Every drop of my tinctures has 2. Please help… I have five quart sized canning jars. And purchased a fifth of everclear. Pu the herb in the jar. Pour the alcohol to completely cover the herb.
Put the lid on shake well snd sit in a sunny window for the alcohol to extract the cannabinoids. I want to make gummies and candies with the tincture. How do I figure out the dosage per gummy?
How much bud does it take to produce the equivalent of a commercially available dropper-bottle? So most of these responses are for treating illnesses. What if I wanted to use the tincture for Jello or to make gummies for me and my friends what would be the ideal recipe to get high. But not to be tripping balls. Could anyone tell me or point the way how to make tincture using everclear and coconut oil in the crockpot?
Marla, they are 2 different processes. The tincutre, is made by soaking the product in alcohol. When i use tincture sublingually it burns of my part of tongue because of high percent of alcohol. Ill break it down for you guys easy. Decarb at degrees for 40 minutes if you wanna get high, this will stink up your place. Use a sealed mason jar and or oven bags to do it without smell or with minimal smell. Next you freeze your bud and everclear for at least a few hours but close to a full day is ideal, forgot i like to use a grinder to grind my weed to almost powder, people disagree on this but honestly you can grind before or after the decarb, i usually do before but you can do it after too.
Or break up bud into smaller buds, u can leave buds whole but if they are bigger they might need more time to extract the tricomes and you just might not get them all. Oh also have a frozen jar you plan to mix in. Then after everything is frozen pour your hopefully proof everclear over your frozen buds, and close the lid and shake like hell for at least minutes then throw it back in the freezer for like 2 hours, take it out and shake like hell again.
This can be done without killing yourself but if to much alcohol vapor with it heavier then air sinks down to your open flames you can get at least a kitchen fire and damage your tincture but you could cause an explosion too so why risk it? And trust me this works just as well if not better.
After you strain your bud put it back in a jar and pour more frozen alcohol over it. After you shake your 2nd wash for at least 5 minutes for shaking longer is better to a point then strain this with the filter you already have set up, this saves time setting up 1 filter instead of 2 i use coffee filters also wet your filters with fresh alcohol to reduce the amount of tincture they soak up.
Combine the alcohol from both runs and reduce by at least half and try it, i reduce more usually. You probably want at least 3grams of buds per ounce of finished tincture.
Then you can winterize to improve taste if you like, or the best part is you can easily transfer your tincture to tons of things, like honey, aguave, sugar, possibly glycerin? Most is removed with one wash your correct.
But there is some left in the bud after 1 wash, but most is left in the alcohol thats still in the bud after 1 wash. Doing the 2nd wash pulls out that alcohol thats still in the buds and it mixes with the fresh alcohol. This will increase your potency. You could even do it a 3rd, 4th, 5th time etc….
It basically becomes a case of diminishing returns and at some point the cost of alcohol outweighs the cost of cannabis. If you grow then 1 wash is probably fine cause alcohol probably costs you more then alittle bud.
If your paying for your cannabis then I believe people will benifit from the 2nd wash. The key with using a 2nd was is evaporation after your done, then you can evaporate your alcohol to reach almost any potency you want. Set up a double boiler, keep the alcohol tincture away from the stove.
Add the water to the bottom of the double boiler and bring to a boil. Turn the stove off, Then place the top portion with the tincture in it on the bottom add some coconut oil and flavoring if desired.
Stir occasionally and you convert it over to a coconut oil tincture. I recommend turning all kitchen fans on also. Once the process is finished and and it turns into a black solid , then how do I make it into an oil to use for putting drops under your toung?
Sorry new to this. But finished product was small hard black substance. When I wanted to be able to use as drops for under the toung. I was given drops before and worked wonders for my pain. I have stage 4 ovarian cancer. Hope this can still be used to make drops. This matter turned solid and black. Can it be dissolved into anything to make an oil for drops?
I live in an apartment in PA and decarbing will cause odors and probably the law. I have some old over a year flower that I want to make into a tincture. Can you tell me what I can do? I want the THC intact. My brother has a brain injury and about a year ago we started using edibles to help with some of the psychosis he has from the injury. It has worked amazingly. We have previously been infusing the weed with coconut oil and administering it to him that way, but over the past several months he has been gaining weight consistently.
To change his diet and to make a healthier alternative, we are considering make a tincture. Does anyone know how much weed should be mixed with how much alcohol? And do you guys find a tincture mix to be as effective as infused oil? Hi, can I put my tincture on the fridge? Live in LA with no AC… can get really hot in the appartment. You are asking why high proof alcohol burns in your mouth…really? You would do a process called reduction. You will get a double boiler and have your fully strained tincture in a jar or measuring cup Pyrex.
Heat the tincture slowly and swish the solution around every few seconds. If you used Everclear it will reduce quickly. Then put product in dark bottle infinity jars or any other ultraviolet glass dropper is best store and enjoy. I mean, if it bothers you so much to be asked, why bother answering? Been using rubbing alcohol and herb solution as a topical solution and rub. For muscle and joint pain in the extreme.
Do the tinctures on this page using ever clear good for this. Do I close the mason jar when boiling or leave it open? How high should the water be covering the jar? What if I use desnaturalized alcohol? Can I use it like medical marijuana for bone or muscular pain?
I make a weaker version with abv and whatever alcohol, last time I used vanillla vodka. My question is do you have a lid on the jar and do you entirely cover it with water like you are canning?
We use a Volcano to vape our weed and I use the remains to make butter. Can I do the same to make a tincture or does it need to be fresh herb? Not sure on tinctures I will research it. If so would you please share? If yes, will the tincture have to be shaken before each dose?
My husband and I love the tinctures we are making but a few droppers of Everclear under the tongue is difficult to handel. Does anyone have a way to keep the strength but make the taste better. I just watched a video where the tincture mix was put in a sonicator ultrasonic cleaner for minutes then strained. Instead of shaking the jar I assume.
Looking for the best pain relief recipe. Not interested in the high just need pain relief from nerve damage. Im sober from alcohol for almost 14 years now. I want to try making a tincture but its got alcohol in it? The health benefits are immediate and indisputable.
Can someone please tell me thebest way to make the tinctures? My door is near the main door and elevator my neighbors will surely smell it. I Live in fear of being evicted its not fair. And can it be done without alcohol? I am interested in the health aspects of tincture. I am thinking of the freezer method without decarboxylation. Would it still help with pain and imflamation? I have a batch of tincture going, but I need more liquid…So far, I have a bottle of Everclear in it.
I have a bottle of Vodka…Would it hurt if I topped it off with the vodka? I am going to try a 15 minute immersion into boiling water, followed by 5 minutes in a ice bath shock and then move to the decarb stage. Do you think this will work to remove the chlorophyll? I use about an ounce of decarboxylated vegetation…and nearly fill a quart mason jar with Everclear….
I used 1oz of good bud, pulverized in Bullett to…real small. One cup of Everclear just covered plant material. Still potency seems weak. Initial bake was deg x 20 min. So where does the Marijuana come into the recipes? I was just told about this method.
Thank you for any help you can give. They make cannibus spray, Sativex. They have the decarboxilation steps on their website along with the Gaschromatography result.
Listen to the PROs not the wanna bees. Does the Alcohol remain in the tincture? Although the amount of alcohol in an average dose of tincture is very small, alcohol is a carcinogen so not a good choice for someone who has cancer. Rick Simpson Oil or an infused coconut oil would be a lot healthier choice.
I currently decarb at 20min x f. For those who are not deep into Cannabis or making Tinctures this is a SIGHT better than some of the Youtubes that say you can process tinctures in 3 minutes, bottle and go. You can infuse just about anything including honey, vinegar, oils, etc.
And this is a good primer expecially for those who are ill, thank you! Would hearing it up in a pan at a low temperature do the trick? If you heat it to at least F for about 30 minutes it should improve the potency, but remember that alcohol vapor is flammable so be sure you have good ventilation and no open flame.
If you put it in a mason jar and set the jar inside a water-filled crockpot set to F, you should be OK. Bear in mind that the longer you heat it, the more volume will be lost due to evaporation.
In reading the comments, I see many people who may benefit from my experience, so here goes. I switched from smoking to edibles when I got vocal cord cancer 5 years ago. My doctor says the cancer was most likely caused by smoking cigarettes and drinking straight vodka when I was younger, not from smoking pot. This is my Golden Dragon recipe:. Lower-proof liquors like vodka can also be used but the THC extraction will not be as efficient.
Some users report that freezing the alcohol helps minimize the amount of chlorophyll extracted see below. The less leaf there is, the lighter the color of the tincture. Leaf can be used by itself, but because the alcohol dissolves the plant matter e. My experience has been that 16 oz. Decarboxylation just the basics: It begins when the herb is harvested and begins to dry, and continues at a speed you can control with heat. If you want the maximum bang for your buck, you must decarboxylate your herb with heat.
Baking is the easiest, quickest and most effective but smelliest way to do it. Prepare the bud by grinding medium or course. Too fine a grind will make the finished product darker and stronger-tasting. A coffee grinder works well for small batches it will remain sticky afterward so maybe not so good for coffee gourmets.
The bag will contain most of the odor and will retain terpene fumes that might otherwise be burned off. It will stink up the house so plan ahead on how you will ventilate the kitchen. You will lose fewer terpenes if you allow the baked bud to cool and reabsorb any vapors before you open the bag or uncover the pan. Most sources say to let it soak for several weeks, but overnight will work and some people believe that a quick, gentle wash 5 minutes is better because it extracts less chlorophyll and plant materials, resulting in a milder, lighter-colored tincture.
Shake the mix as often as possible to expedite the extraction. Temperature does not appear to be a factor in alcohol extraction, although there is anecdotal evidence that processing in the refrigerator or freezer will result in less chlorophyll being extracted. You will want to remove the wet grounds. The amount of particulates removed will affect the color and taste and may have some effect on the character of the high, but as far as I can tell it does not significantly affect potency.
Strain through a nut-milk bag. Cheesecloth, a t-shirt or a bandana will work but more of the tincture will be lost in the process. Some liquid will remain, so you will lose a bit no matter how or how much you squeeze them. Discard the squeezed grounds.
Pour the tincture from 1 through a metal e. A paper coffee filter may be used but it will absorb some of the terpenes. Golden Dragon made from good bud can be strong enough that two droppers about 1 ml mixed with a glass of fruit juice may be a good dose for beginners, although experienced users may like 10 ml or more per dose.
Potency will vary depending on the amount and type of herb, but as a general rule using home-grown buds no leaf , a dose of between ml will last about hours. Do NOT use it sub-lingually or un-diluted, as it can burn your mouth. GD will keep for a long time some say years if properly stored in an air-tight container in a cool, dark environment.
The refrigerator works best but any cool, dark place will do. You can increase potency by evaporating some of the alcohol out of the tincture. To ensure against breakage, put a piece of cloth in the bottom of the crockpot. ET is significantly more potent although not necessarily in the same ratio as the amount evaporated.
Not to be confused with pot-infused vegetable oils. An initial dose the size of a grain of rice may be plenty. Even when diluted with juice, RSO tastes awful!
Can you tell me how you make your infused coconut oil New hear so I bought a decarboxylator and am wondering I put it in the oil Was I suppose to wash it with Alcohol? Oh boy Help Plz. I made an account with Leafly just to thank you! I too would LOVE your infused coconut oil recipe. I live in OH where they are dragging their feet getting voter approved medicinal up and running.
A friend was visiting from Oregon and had a 1: That was my first experience with tincture. Lots of misinformation out there about preparing tinctures. For example, saying that the longer one lets the ethanol-herb mixture steep, the more potent it will get. It will only be as potent as the total cannabinoids allow it to be.
The best way to get the most out of the herb is to flush with fresh solvent after the first filtering using as little solvent ethanol as possible. Use the solubility ratios to minimize solvent and maximize concentration. I would like to make some gummies. Could you tell me give me the recipe to make tincture?
If you would please give it to me step by step and easy to follow instructions? IMO letting the herb-ethanol mixture steep for weeks is silly. I get good results at room temp in less than a week. I use an inexpensive spice grinder to make it fully pulverized. I try to get as much of the terpenes as possible into the solution.
Investing in a glass ml graduated cylinder is worthwhile. Bigger batch may require a or ml cylinder. I was given Tincture for pain management.
Will it work for this? Then I put it in a mason jar and add about a quarter jar of proof everclear. Let it sit for 2 weeks in a cool dark place and take it out once a day to shake it up. The strain with cheese cloth. If u use a coffee filter it will not work. If u want it extra clear use cheese cloth and then the coffee filter. The better the weed the better the tincture and the more bud u use the stronger it will be.
I take the left over bud from my 1st batch and throw it in another mason jar and call it a seccond run. I leave that for a few months. Try some green crack in your coffee on Saturday morn lol. Oh and one last thing I order little brown bottle droppers online. Makes it easy for dosing. Start out with like 10 drops for beginners. I have a high tolerance with weed and wax. I used dark but milk tastes really good too!!
I love this recipe. I only do that if I want to stay home the rest of the night. I use one ounce of good bud with milliliters of Everclear. Or half ounce of bud to ml of Everclear. Also done much research on the subject, reading scientific studies and Google. Preheat your oven to F. Measure out one ounce of good quality bud. Run the Cannabis through a grinder to make it into a coarse powder. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Place prepared cannabis on cookie sheet into your oven on the middle rack. Set your timer for minutes one hour fifty minutes , and close your oven door. Place the hot cookie sheet on your counter or rack to cool. I use a convection oven safely without having it blown all over my oven.
Does making a tincture with alcohal and then and cooking off alcohal and replacing with glycerin work the same sublingualy? I just made my first batch of tincture…omg how do I stop the burn lol I used everclear and honestly just a few drops under my tongue and the tears start rolling from the severe burn.. Just starting to make tinctures…. How can you do this process for a recovering alcoholic? You are making litttle drops of death with this one.
I thought to myself, before I started, that it would be uncomfortable to take everclear sublingual but assumed the recipe would mention something for us newbies. There is no way that is not detrimental to the health of your mouth. If you are eventually cooking the alcohol away I get it, but not for consumption this is crazy.
Just leave lid off? Do you have any suggestions for high CBD strains? What temp and what duration? Can i put tinctures in my ecig? Also the glycerin tincture would be very very weak. It takes ml glycerin to extract the cannabinoids in 1 gram of ground bud. Alcohol is dangerous to the lungs. Most tinctures are extracted with alcohol and alcohol is bad for the lungs. Thanks, I will try reconstituting it. Previously thought it was hopeless! Is it normal for a tincture to have a strong alcohol smell?
Sorry, you say filter it with a coffee grinder. Do you mean coffee filter? How much flower is recommended for a small batch. Yes you can but the tincture will be very very weak. All depends on the strength of your tinctures. Regular tinctures vodka or rum works fine. I much prefer to use drops of a strong tincture than have to use 45 ml of a weaker tincture.
Alcohol is needed to separate the THC from the plant. Can I use proof? If so what would be the suggested soak time? Is it ok to start with 1oz for cannibus tincture process? Sounds easier than it seems. It IS that easy! What do you think cannabis is? If you use shatter. When the shatter dissolves its ready to use. Dry sift let sit 24 hours. And filter through a coffee filter. This method allows you to take a portion of a teaspoon of olive oil and lasts for 12 hours.
I know many people who prefer this over smoking, vaping, cookies, etc. Peace brothers and sisters. Or just live with it. Pour at least an ounce of cranberry juice into a small glass. Add your tincture to the juice and stir. If I leave it under my tongue for 10 min do I have to swallow it or can I just spiy it out? Do you grind yours? Can you use proof vodka? How long do I wait before use after making it. Obviously, you would only use a THC tincture to achieve a psychoactive high although THC does have some pain-fighting properties.
But if you use a CBD tincture, the benefits multiply. Tinctures can also be used in cooking all sorts of meals and drinks. Juices, soups, salad dressings, ice creams and more can be incorporated with a few drops of tincture. Making tincture at home does not have to be difficult. You just need a few preparation techniques. But because not all cannabis tinctures are made the same, making this would depend on your available time, equipment, and risk tolerance. Tinctures can be made in a mason jar over a few weeks.
The process can be sped up considerably by introducing heat hours compared to weeks. Rice cookers, slow cookers and sous vide water ovens are safe and effective tools. It is important to understand that having the highest percentage of alcohol possible as well as the quality and quantity level of cannabis would help the potency of the final product.
