Tincture Of Cannibis?

Recommended Posts

High everyone,

Just made our first batch of tincture. 1-oz finely ground flowers, 3 shots/ounces of 151 everclear. Placed in our closetfor 10 days in a canning jar. Shook up 5-8 times a day. After 10, took fine gauze into 2 coffee filters. Is this proceedure correct? How long do you stir in food coloring, tincture if the temp is at 350?

 

Does anyone have a fudge recipe? We would really appreciate it.

Thanks,

 

LilBuddy

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today made candy. Learned some quick lessons white molds are for hard candy that should be sprayed with Pam before use. Clear molds are for chocolate.

Procedure sounds right, but that sounds like a really strong dose/I don't know if that amount of alcohol will extract all the THC. I was thinking it was more like a fifth of 151 to an ounce. But never actually done this myself, hope to soon.

Sounds good up to: stir in food coloring and 350 temp. No need to heat it above 80 degrees (alcohol vaporizes at this temp) and why food coloring?

IMO..three shots is not enough. you need to at least cover the bud in the jar..in my experience a fine ground ounce will need more like 2 to 3 cups. in the summer i set mine on the porch and brew it like sun tea!..in the winter it goes in the crock pot for butter...and we eat brownies..happy holidays! :thumbsu:

Hey Big Timm,

I have half of the tincture I made as well as the plant material that I used still in a Mason jar. Should I pour the ticture I have back into the Mason jar and add two cups minus two shots? If I put it under my Halides will it"Brew" faster? The directions I read say to keep it in the Dark. Please let me know what you think I should do/

Thanks,

I have a great fudge recipe. Will PM to you when I get home. May need a slight adjustment for an alcohol based tincture, but we can figure that out....

Hey Greenhouse,

Can't wait,

Is it possible to make a potent tincture with regular 80 proof vodka?

Hope so, or I just wasted about 14 grams of meds. Oops.

Yes, the only drawback is that you also extract the water soluble compounds like chlorophyll. You can avoid some of these compounds by extracting in just plain water first. Just put the herb in a mason jar and fill with water. Let it sit until the water turns green, strain and repeat until the water stays clear after sitting overnight. This will remove most of the water soluble compounds that will effect the taste. Once you have it finished try making Jello shots with it. It will taste better and is easier to establish dosage.

Ditto that! I have been able to use Bacardi's 151 or Everclear 151 and get good results. Never tried Jello shots but that's one I will definately put on my list.

Thanks for the tip about flushing out the chlorophyll. Will try that with my next batch. The current one is bright green and tastes just like it looks!
