Do you want to know more about cannabis tincture, its benefits and, most importantly, the best way to make it? Then keep reading and you will be impressed of how many benefits does weed tincture have. First of all, let us talk about what marijuana tincture is? Cannabis tincture is a liquid extract made from weed. You can add it to your food and make your favorite meals taste even better. Or, considering the fact that most marijuana-infused drinks are either too sweet or too strong, you can try to make your own marijuana-infused drink. But in order to do that, you need to make marijuana tincture first.
– 8 ounces food-grade vegetable glycerin
– 0.5 ounce decarboxylated cannabis
You can choose whatever strain you like, but if you do not want to get too high, you better use cannabis strains with a higher CBD to THC ratio. Depending on your metabolism and ailment, adding from 15 mg to 25 mg of cannabis tincture to your drink should be enough. But in order to find your personal dosage, you better start with a few drops of marijuana tincture and increase its amount if needed. Now, it is time for a step-by-step instruction on how to make a perfect cannabis tincture.
Step 1. Decarboxylation
The process of decarboxylation helps convert the THCa and CBDa toTHC and CBD. What is the point? It will make your oils, tinctures and edibles more potent so you will be able to get more benefits from your homemade treats. First of all, preheat your oven up to 245° F. Your buds (or flowers) should be broken up into small pieces. In order to do that, you can use either your hands or a coffee grinder. Then you need to place your ground cannabis on a baking sheet. Rotate the pan every 15 minutes in order to make sure that your weed will toast evenly. Usually, the entire process takes from 60 to 90 minutes.
This step is very easy and all that you need to do is to place decarbed weed into a dry mason jar. It is extremely important to use a dry jar. Then, slowly pour the six ounces of vegetable glycerin into the jar. Now comes the hardest part. And it is not about implementation but about patience because you should let the cannabis soak for two months.
Step 3. Filter
Two months later, all you need to do is to filter your cannabis tincture. Drain the mix of vegetable glycerin and weed through a cheesecloth or micro hash straining bag. The final product should have both dark color and thick consistency.
Step 4. Enjoy your tincture!
It is time to taste your delicacy. Now you surely can make your cannabis drink as good and potent as you want it to be.
