Glycerine Cannabis Tincture 101

A quick and easy powerful glycerine based cannabis tincture to do it's as simple as pouring glycerine into a brown glass bottle, followed by your cannabis heads or hashish.

Ingredients:

  • 5 grams x Bubble Hash (finely chopped)
  • 5 grams x Quality Cannabis Heads (finely chopped)
  • 1 x Glycerine (100ml)
  • 1 x Brown Glass Bottle (200-250ml)
  • ? x Brown Glass Eye Dropper Bottles (number of dropper bottles needed will depend on their size)
  • 1 x Coffee Plunger
  • 1 x Coffee Filter

Step 1. Pour half the glycerine into the 200-250ml brown glass bottle, followed by the 10 grams of finely chopped and mixed cannabis heads and hashish. Then add the rest of the glycerine and put the lid on shake well for a while and then leave to sit in a dark cool area for as long as you like, returning to shake every few days or weeks to ensure as much of the THC and cannabinoids are extracted as possible. Don't go to step 2 for at least 6 months, it can be left for a year or more all the while giving it occasional shakes.

Step 2. Get the clean eye dropper bottle/s and coffee plunger. Now grab your sitting cannabis glycerine brew and pour it all into the coffee plunger leaving it to drip as long as you can as glycerine is thick.

Step 3. Once this is done place the coffee filter over the bottom of the coffee plunger screen and cut around it leaving about 1-2mm of the coffee filter protruding around the edge to ensure a snug fit.Now plunge your brew and begin to pour into your eye dropper bottle/s until you cant get any more out of it and cap them all up and store in fridge. Now we have a "Glycerine Cannabis Tincture" that can be taken directly under the tongue or added to meals (see "Cooking With Cannabis 101).

If the cannabis tincture is too thick for the eye droppers being used then some water may be added at the rate of 1 part water, 3 parts glycerine. It should be noted that although THC is non soluble in water glycerine is. Food flavourings may also easily be added to glycerine making it a tastier medicine when being taken under the tongue.

As with any cannabis tincture test it's potency first with a small amount to help determine desired dosage rates.
