How to make cannabis tinctures

Today let’s dive into cannabis tinctures, an easy and effective way to ingest cannabis in a safe and controlled way. Tinctures are an alcohol-based form of cannabis product that is usually taken sublingually with a dropper. For people looking for a clean and healthier alternative to smoking or vaping, tinctures can check all the marks for a quick, easy and precise way to ingest your cannabis.

 

Benefits of Cannabis Tinctures

  • Precise dosage
    Most people have a story about a brownie who hit them a little harder than expected. With tinctures, you can easily calculate your dosage to have a precise number of mg per dropper or per bottle making it very easy to accurately dose your intake.
  • Fast-acting
    Tinctures are taken sublingually (meaning to hold the substance under the tongue) making the effects and benefits felt almost instantaneously as it reaches your bloodstream much faster than ingesting edibles and let the liver process the THC.
  • Incredibly easy to make
    A few easy steps and inexpensive items are required to make your tinctures at home. By following a proven recipe it becomes safe and easy to create your own cannabis product.
  • Add your own touch
    You can customize your own tinctures by adding other herbs and ingredients to complement your cannabis tinctures. Honey for a better-tasting product, lavender or chamomile for a more relaxing and soothing mix. Experiment and see what suits your taste palette.

 

 

Decarb your weed

‘Decarbing’ or decarboxylate your cannabis is the first and one of the most critical parts of making tinctures or edibles. The decarboxylation process is basically an easy step to extract and activate as many cannabinoids, whether it’s THC, CBD, CBN out of your plant matter before infusions or making tinctures.

 Here are a few links to some devices specially designed to ensure a maximum yield of your precious weed while decarboxylating your cannabis.

A Simpler way for decarbing your cannabis is to grind it, lay it on wax paper and put it in the oven for 30-40 minutes at 320-340F.

 

The Ice Dragon Recipe

This recipe seems to be the best and easiest way to create your own high-quality tinctures.

You can use a THC/CBD calculator to have a precise amount required and expected dosage. After you decarboxylate your weed, let it cool down and transfer it to a mason jar to be put in the freezer for an hour. At the same time in another mason jar, add some 80+ proof food-grade alcohol to cool down in the freezer.

Everclear 150 might be the best option if available in your area for food-grade alcohol to pull as many cannabinoids out of the plant material. Once both are sufficiently cold, cover the plant manner with just enough alcohol to completely submerge it and give it a good shake every day for about a week.

The longer you wait the more terpenes and chlorophylls will seep into your mixtures giving it a stronger taste but more likely a more potent end product. Remember that the stronger the proof alcohol you use, the more terpenes and cannabinoids will be extracted.  Strain your tincture with a coffee filter and transfer to a dark amber glass dropper bottle. You can always let the mixtures sit for a while with the lid open to let some of the alcohol evaporate for a softer tasting end product.

You can add some honey, turmeric or ginger for flavour and added benefits if you find your tincture taste a bit strong. Try your dosage with a small amount first and ramp it up until you are satisfied with the effect.
