3 DIY Tips for Cannabis Tinctures

A staple in any cannabis enthusiast’s arsenal is the cannabis tincture. To make your own tincture, you’ll need just three things: high-proof alcohol, cannabis, and time. Here’s how you can do it:

• Decarboxylate your cannabis: It’s a fancy word for ‘preheat’ because that’s what you’re doing. Simply lay your chosen product on a baking sheet, bake at 240°F for 40-45 minutes, then let it cool.

• Mix the decarboxylated cannabis with the alcohol in a jar.

• Store the jar in a dark, cool place for a month. To speed up the extraction, shake the jar daily.

DIY Cannabis Topicals

Topicals, which are applied directly to the skin, are becoming increasingly popular due to their non-psychoactive and medicinal properties.

• Take an oil – olive, jojoba, or coconut – and mix it with decarboxylated cannabis in a jar.

• Put the jar in a saucepan with a few inches of water and simmer on low heat to extract the cannabis for three to six hours.

• Cool and strain the mixture. What you have now is the base for lotions, oils, balms, and salves.

Creating Your Own Cannabis Tea and Edibles

Sip and savor the therapeutic effect of cannabis by trying your hand at DIY cannabis tea.

• Simply simmer water with butter and your amount of decarboxylated cannabis.

• Pour through a coffee filter and it’s done! Please remember, though, moderations is key. Overdoing it to make the product more potent can lead to a less pleasant experience.
