In the last article we made an alcohol based tincture, if you prefer no alcohol there is a great medicinal alternative. A vegetable glycerin extraction makes a wonderful tincture.
VEGETABLE GLYCERIN TINCTURE
Here’s What you’ll need:
- 32oz Mason Jar w/ lid and ring
- Enough cannabis (bud is best) to fill the jar
- Small funnel
- Cheesecloth/micro strainer
- Dark colored tincture bottles
- Vegetable Glycerin (The type labeled for human consumption!)
- A dark place for storage
Fill your Mason Jar with ground decarbed bud (you can use non decarbed bud for less psychoactive effect).
Slowly pour VG over your bud, allowing for all air to escape. Add VG slowly until you can fill the bottle.
Close tightly and store in a dark place, flipping the jar once a day (e.g. to day it’s standing on the bottom, tomorrow I flip it and it stands on its lid).
Let the mixture sit for 30-60 days flipping once a day. Warm the tincture slightly to help with the straining/ bottling process. Fill your dark-colored tincture bottles and store in a cool dark place.
