Hey Everyone… I have been dabbling in edibles for a little while…started with maikng my own magic butter and baking brownies and cookies… moved on to canna-caps…then extracted from my homegrown northern lights with everclear and added the remains after evaporation to a sour patch type gummy recipe …( my favorite so far)
(1) Next I would like to make a tincture but I can’t stand the taste of alcohol… basically it is the same thing as my canna extract like I used in the gummies but that one had “all” the alcohol removed and it was a sticky goo I mixed with coconut oil… From what I understand I am to stop evaporation when it still has alcohol ( thus still being a liquid)
Is there anything else to use as a base for my tincture other than the everclear or glycerin? I was thinking a lower proof of alcohol?..maybe one of those flavored pucker mixers you use in mixed drinks?
(2) I have no idea when it comes to potency so in your experiences…if I took 1 oz of northern lights (trim & bud ) and extracted the good stuff with everclear… ended up with a sticky goo… how much “base” or “carrier” would I use to make a decent potency tincture?..I know it has variables but ball park it?..lol
Thanks in advance
