  • How to make: CANNABIS TINCTURE

    Cannabis tincture is a highly concentrated mix of alcohol and trichomes.

    It is an effective alternative for those who can't smoke due to health problems, or for anyone that needs to medicate without the odor of smoke. Cannabis taken orally has more of a body stone effect.



    Materials needed:

    a) Kind bud. The higher quality the buds, the better the end product.
    b) 190 proof grain alcohol, or the highest alcohol content you can find.
    DO NOT USE RUBBING ALCOHOL,
    only use drinkable alcohol sold in liquor stores.
    c) 2 mason jars with lids
    d) Coffee filter
    e) Pot of water
    f) Flat glass/pyrex casserole dish. The wider the dish, the faster it will evaporate.
    g) Dark glass tincture bottle with dropper. You can get them in health food stores. If they don't sell empty bottles then buy the cheapest vitamin/supplement they sell in a bottle and rinse it out.

    optional: Coffee grinder. This isn't necessary, but it allows the trichomes to be penetrated easier by the alcohol, which means more potency.

    Step 1:
    Break up the buds. The amount shown is 20gr. You can use any amount.


    Step 2:
    Put buds into coffee grinder


    Step 3:
    Press the button a few times until it is ground, but not powdery


    20gr ground bud


    Step 4:
    Push the coffee filter down into one of the mason jars. Leave a little hanging over the top edges and screw the lid ring over it to hold in place.


    Step 5:
    Put ground bud into other jar, then pour in alcohol until it covers the bud


    Step 6:
    Put lid on jar and shake for a few minutes

    Note: Some people leave the mixture in the jar for a few days or weeks. If you do this, keep it in a cool, dark place. Alcohol removes most of the trichomes within a few minutes so letting it sit for a long period is optional.

    Step 7:
    After shaking for a few minutes, pour all the mixture into the filter, then pour a small amount of alcohol into the jar and swish it around to remove any remaining residue, then pour into filter.


    Let drain for a few minutes


    After draining, it is ready to use for cooking or mixing with drinks, but it has too much alcohol to use orally in undiluted form, so the excess alcohol must be removed to make a more concentrated mix.


    Step 8:
    Make sure there is adequate ventilation in the cooking area. If you cook indoors, turn on some fans and open a window to dissipate the vapours.

    Put an uncovered pot of water on the stove on medium heat. Place the casserole dish on top, then pour the filtered mixture into the dish.


    Heat until most of the alcohol is evaporated


    Step 9:
    Pour what's left of the evaporated mixture into tincture bottle. If there is any residue left in the dish, put a small amount of alcohol in it, swish around, then pour into tincture bottle.


    1oz of tincture ready for use


    Dosage:
    The amount you consume depends on the potency of the buds and concentration of the tincture, so you have to experiment to find the dosage that is right for you.

    Put a drop or two under the tongue and waiting a few minutes for it to be absorbed into the bloodstream. If you feel nothing after a while (at least 30 minutes), try increasing the dosage.

        If you put drops under the tongue there isn't much taste. The only thing you can really taste is the alcohol.

              Tincture can burn if taken undiluted. It's best mixed in a drink or recipe.

                  well this looks like something im defently gonna have to make one day.
                  i have a question.
                  is there anyway to inject this kind of thing directly into your veins?
                  and if there is how would u go about doing it?
                  i have zero experience injecting drugs so idk how you would do it if u would have to water it down or what

                  ...and yes lol im very high right now

                    Most people here add honey to the tincture. Same process as described above, just add some honey in the final product to improve the taste.
                    "I desire knowledge by nature," the words of Aristotle, my nature is not to hate you. So I try to put myself in the depths of the other man, peace to my brother man, in search of my place in this world to discover man, damn check out the colors man.

                      *Added steps

                      After shaking up the bud/alcohol mixture, pour it through a stainless steel teabag strainer over a jar. Push down on the plant material to remove most of the alcohol.

                      Place the drained plant material into another jar with alcohol, shake it up for a few minutes, then repeat the process above. This removes trichomes that didn't get released with the first shake.

                      Pour the pre-strained mix through the paper coffee filter and proceed with the steps in the original instructions. It filters much faster without plant material.

                      After draining, there may be some hash on the paper filter. Put the filter on a piece of cardboard and let dry overnight. Scrap it off with a rubber spatula and enjoy.

                        Very nice guide.

                        Down my way the stuff is produced on a mass scale and put in a pill capsule form and called oil. Dont know anyone who injests the stuff, its mainly taken by either dipping a pin in it and burning(spotting) on hot knives, or smearing a little on tinfoil and burning a lighter underneath. Butane can also be used i believe.

                          Interveinous tincture ingestion

                          The recipe for tincture sounds easy and good. But I think if anyone were to inject it into their veins they would die. The filtration method would leave a lot of vegetation in it. NOT a good idea.
                          get high but dont die
