What’s good Greenies and welcome to another insightful Wisdom Wednesday from me, ThisBuds4You. This week we’re going to check out how to make an alcohol-free cannabis tincture using glycerine. Tinctures are a liquid concentration of cannabis, where the THC and cannabinoids have been leached out into alcohol or glycerine. Put a few drops of this concentrated serum under your tongue and within a few minutes you’ll be feeling the effects. Tinctures don’t require smoking or vaporizing. This how-to was written by SubCool, the creator of TGA Seeds. A link to the original article can be found here on the High Times website but I’ve also copied it below. Any questions feel free to hit me up at ThisBuds4You@HailMaryJane.com.

Keep it green Greenies and OVERGROW THE WORLD!!!

Alcohol-Free Cannabis Tincture

Recently, I was introduced to the recipe for a convenient cannabis-based medicine. This tincture doesn’t require smoking, vaporizing or even ingesting baked goods; simply apply a few drops of it under the tongue. It contains no harmful additives and, if made correctly using good bud, actually tastes quite pleasant. (more…)

    Great article.
    I have recently gotten into the tincture game, making a few smallish batches.
    I have had good luck with a very hot glycerin extraction: around 375 degrees F!
    I know, I am vaporizing the THC/CBD! But in this case practice and prediction do not meet.
    My rationale was this: people vape weed, seems to work fine. So, thinks I, why not vape into a carrier liquid?
    Glycerol boils around 550 F, which gives a margin with THC boiling at 325, CBD closer to 365.
    The cool part is the the cannabinoids are ‘sticky’ to the glycerin molecules.
    Intermolecular interaction potentials, and all that.
    Simple English, it works!
    Used an old Espresso machine, rigged for glycerine, heated to 375 F, with ground herb in the espresso basket.
    Extraction time, about 4 minutes.
    My hasty air-pump leaked badly, so it was a chore getting the machine up to pressure.
    Tincture has a nice pinkish-purple color, same as the little purple flowers. Late harvest.
    Very tasty, should have decarboxylated prior to extraction.
    No worries, decarbed after extracting. 250 F for 45 minutes, lightly covered.
    Very potent, floral-hash-strawberry-jam taste with maple syrup notes. Good pain relief (Gout!), sleeping aid, anti-anxiety.
    Tends to make smoked herb feel stronger, if tincture ‘lift’ is on-board prior to sparking up.
    Overall, tinctures are my new favorite!!!

    Can you make this with less weed (like a quarter)? if so, how much glycerin would you use?
