Cannabis tinctures are so versatile. You can use them to make candy and other sugar based edibles. You can take them sublingually (or under the tongue). You can reduce the alcohol to almost nothing to make a gel to fill capsules with.
They're also a lot easier to make than I would have imagined. In this week's episode of Lunch With Lo, I'm discussing two different ways to make tinctures. One that requires almost no equipment (but a lot of time); and the other which I've kind of showcased previously in the Cannasugar episode.
For either method you will need:
Method 1, the long way:
Method 2, the quick way, electric stoves and hotplates only:
In my opinion you should go with the quick method because, why wait for two weeks for something you can have in an hour? Right? Of course, if you're using a gas stove or you don't have adequate ventilation, please don't do the quick method. You also shouldn't light a bowl or a blunt in the kitchen while you're cooking up a tincture because ALCOHOL VAPORS ARE HIGHLY FLAMMABLE.
Let me repeat that:
Don't get us all in trouble because you think you know better. Just open a window and wait 30 minutes to get high, ok?
In the form below, enter the approximate percentage of THC (or CBD) of your flower or concentrate. Then how many grams you're planning to use. Followed by the number of cups (or parts of cups) of oil or butter you're planning to infuse. Hit the "Calculate" button and see the approximate dosage per teaspoon and tablespoon.
