When making cannabis tincture, whether THC or CBD, with alcohol it is best to go with the strongest alcohol you can get your hands on. Turning your cannabis flower into cannabis tincture is super easy and requires little effort and time if you are using a really strong alcohol. Some people argue that with 150+ proof the cannabis tincture can be ready in just a few minutes, however, for maximum potency it is best to allow it to sit for at least a few days. Store in a cool, dark place to maintain optimal potency. Some people like to burn the alcohol off in a crockpot however I use cannabis tinctures strictly for cooking, so the alcohol burns off, anyway. Be cautious if you choose to burn the alcohol off from the cannabis tincture as it is likely to cause a fire.
Prep Time: Up to 7 days
1-ounce cannabis, ground and decarbed
750ml bottle 190 proof (or higher) grain alcohol
Place the cannabis into a 1-quart jar and add 2 cups of alcohol.
Seal the jar tightly and shake well. Store in the freezer.
Shake the jar at least 3 times a day for 3-7 days.
Filter the contents of the mason jar and transfer the cannabis tincture to a freezer-safe glass jar with a tight-fitting lid.
Store in the freezer away from flames and children.
