Tinctures created at home are one of the easiest ways you as a patient can medicate. This recipe is effortless, simple, and quick in preparation. Sure, you need to wait 30 days to enjoy the success of your work, but the end result is extremely worth it.
I enjoy tinctures because of the versatility of using it within different mediums such as hot chocolate and other food items. You can secretly add it to hot drinks, inconspicuously slip a few drops under your tongue, or blatantly add it to mixed alcoholic drinks.
The pleasures of strain specific tinctures can be explored and mastered for different flavor profiles. This is where possessing strain hunter or huntress qualities can really help out. Also adding flavored extracts can enhance and even be used to change the flavor composition of the tinctures. Experimentation and practice are key to mastering this simple yet important extraction process.
Mise en place:
1 ounce or more of ground fully cured cannabis (strain of your choice)
8 ounce mason jar (a small set or recycled ones you have on hand)
1 large bottle Everclear
Take the cannabis of your choice and divide evenly per the gram dose of your choice per jar. You want to aim for 1 gram of weed per fluid ounce for a modest dose or you can increase the grams per fluid ounce to your personal choice. Keep in mind, there are 8 fluid ounces in a 8 ounce mason jar.
Now, pour the Everclear evenly over the cannabis in each mason jar. Gently shake the bottle so that the weed is evenly distributed throughout the Everclear. Place the jars into a cool dark place such as a cupboard for 30 days. While this mixture is producing magic over the time period, make sure to shake the jar gently once every other day. On the 30th day, strain the plant material from each mason jar either using cheese cloth or a very fine mesh strainer such as an medium fine chinois.
Now you have the choice to either add the strained tincture back into the manson jars or pour them into medicine dropper bottles. If you pour them into medicine dropper bottles, your dose will be anywhere from 3-5 drops to a full dropper. Start small, then work your way up to see what works best for your body. You can also add this tincture to teas, hot chocolate, mixed drinks, coffee, or any other drink of your choice. To add a little twist, you can flavor the tincture even more by adding in different extracts such as peppermint. Add the desired amount, until the tincture takes on the desired taste.
