Help with my first tincture please

Tried a small batch with half ounce good bud. Ground it. Decarb and put in jar with enough everclear 191 to cover it. Put in freezer and shook jar 3 times a day for 5 days. Do I need to evaporate some of the alcohol off? If so how much. I will use this to put a few drops under my toung to get medicated when I need to be discreet. As it is now 3 drops don’t do it. My thinking is if I reduce it down it will get stronger per drop just less alcohol.

Yes, it will be more concentrated.

I might suggest this however. This is from a food scientist who is in the cannabis business:

1 oz of alcohol per gram of flower. Break up but do NOT grind! Freeze flower and alcohol separately. After freezing, mix the two and shake vigorously then leave in the freezer for no more than 1 hour. This will extract 99% of the oils but leave most of the chlorophyll behind which is very bitter.

Evaporate away as much of the alcohol as you wish.


Great info @Myfriendis410 I booked marked it for future reference
Also happy new year my friend be a bit since we spoke hope all is well :v:

How long after this do you allow it it sit or is it ready for use after the evaporation??

This is NOT decarb ed! Anyone using this should be aware. I use this for making shatter which doesn’t require decarb.

Doing OK John! Hope you have a fantastic 2019! Tag me in when you get a chance. We’re visiting family in Tombstone Az right now. Headed home tomorrow.

You’ll need more like 15-30 drops. Hold it under your tongue for a minimum of 30 seconds.

Evaporate off as much as you can w/o turning it into a blob.
