Sometimes you don’t have time for the full cannabis extraction process. Like a ready-made meal, sometimes you need a quick way to make a medicinal extraction. If you’ve got the marijuana, but don’t have the time to dedicate to the full extraction process, this quick tincture recipe produces impressive results in a much shorter period.

Usually, a tincture takes weeks of infusing the cannabis together with high proof alcohol. This will give your tincture a higher potency. And u will be able to strip all the THC and CBD of your material up to a 100%. However, this method wil make sure u will strip as much as possible within a short period.

Instructions

  1. Place the dry cannabis in a plastic bucket
  2. Crush the plant material using a stick of clean, untreated wood or any other similar device.
  3. Continue to crush the cannabis, while adding 1 cup solvent until the plant material is completely covered and soaked. Stir the mixture for about three minutes. As you stir the mixture, the cannabinoids will begin dissolving off the plant into the solvent.
  4. Strain the solvent mixture into another bucket. At this point, you have stripped the material of about 80% of its THC.
  5. Repeat this process for the second wash. Again add 1 cup solvent to the plant material and work for another three minutes to extract the remaining THC.
  6. Strain this new solvent mix into the bucket containing the first mix that was previously separated.
  7. Discard the twice washed plant material.
  8. Pour the solvent mixture through a coffee filter into a clean container.
  9. Boil the solvent off in a safe environment. A rice cooker will boil the solvent off nicely. CAUTION: the solvent is flammable and the vapors toxic. Avoid stove-tops, red-hot elements, sparks, cigarettes, and open flames as the fumes can be extremely dangerous.
  10. Add solvent to rice cooker  and turn on heat. Make sure you are in a well-ventilated area and set up a fan to carry the solvent fumes away. If you can complete this step outside.
  11. Continue to add mixture to cooker as the solvent evaporates until you have added it all to the cooker.
  12. Continue to reduce the liquid until you have roughly 1 cup liquid left.
  13. Place in a container or jar and let stand for at least 24 hours.

New to this. Do you use decarboxylated marijuana for tincture or is that process not needed?

Can you use a slow cooker if you don’t have a rice cooker?

I think we need to know how much material to start with to get the 2800mg. In one cup. I usually start with an ounce. Then get four cups. I use a machine that separates it quick. I use one full cup of the alcohol and low boil the alcohol off and use it in about 40 candies. I think if my weed is 23%, would my mg per dose be 23mg? That’s a pretty heavy irie with lemon cookie .

Every tincture recipe I’ve seen calls for decarbing the flower first.
I don’t see that called out here.
Is that needed? Or does it just make it stronger?

Made some with only 5g and got 1cup… it’s good just not as strong as I’d like.
I’m going to try again with Decarbing and more flower.

Cheers!
