Here’s a tried-and-true tincture/hash oil recipe that requires so little equipment and effort, you’re going to find yourself making batch after batch of this stuff, just because you can.
Ready for the the skinny on this ridiculously easy technique?
Here’s what You Need:
-1-3 qt Mason jars with lids
-1 oz of bud or 120-150 gram very snowy sugar leaf trim
-1.5 750ml bottles of ICE COLD Ever Clear or other high proof clear ethanol
-Cheese cloth/unbleached coffee filters/etc
-Fine mesh sieve/strainer
-Pyrex or glass pie plate
-1 qt Pyrex or glass bowl/measuring cup
-Silicone hash box
-4oz dropper bottle
-Dab tool/paper clip/utility knife
-optional heat mat
Here’s how you do it:
Decarb your herb of choice:
a) pre-heat oven to 230F; place broken up herb into jar(s) and just barely tighten the lid, then back it off just til it moves a bit;
b) place on tray in oven for 10 minutes, then raise temp to 250F, gently shake jars, and decarb for another 40 minutes;
c) allow to cool completely, then pop jars into freezer for an hour or til you’re ready to continue.
Add enough frozen Ever Clear to just cover the material in the jar(s) & tighten lid.
Shake the heck out of it for about 3 minutes. Seriously. I mean you should almost injure yourself in this process.
Place it in the coldest part of the freezer for an hour, then shake vigorously for a minute and refreeze for another hour. If you didn’t hurt yourself in step 2, you’ll probably do it, here.
Remove from freezer, shake vigorously, & strain using a cheesecloth/filter drapped over a mesh sieve/glass bowl. I gather up the edges and squeeze with my hands until nothing comes out. Rinse remaining material with another shot or 2 of frozen Ever Clear, if you have any left/feel like it.
Evaporate alcohol: place liquid in shallow glass pie pan & leave in a warm, dark, PROPERLY VENTILATED place for 2-4 days. You can use a warming pad to gently heat it, but too much heat makes disgusting tasting tincture and big black resin blobs, like RSO. I never allow the solution to go higher than 85F or so.
When it’s reduced down to less than a cup of fluid and/or it’s the consistency of sugar water, it’s ready for most uses. The tincture should be golden color, not green & not black.
For hash oil, just don’t mix in all the goo that sinks to the bottom of the pan. Scrape all that up and put it in a silicone container. It should be a brown color, not a black tar. If you get a black tar, you’ve heated it too much and it will taste kind of foul in your edibles.
Don’t forget to have plenty of ventilation!
After straining and sitting on heat mat for 30 mins:
After 24hrs in a pie plate, approx 12 hours spent on warming mat:
After about 36 hours. Top is tincture. Bottom is hash oil:
You should end up with about 4-6 fluid oz, once you’re done. How much hash oil you get depends on how much you agitate the suspension.
-Dose sublingually (try 10-15 drops, to start)
-Dose your drinks (try 1-3ml, depending on tolerance)
-Dose your weed candies and snacks with hash oil (approx 48 very nice doses OR 24 out of this world trips from the oily dregs of a batch of tincture)
Try it now! Don’t delay! What are you waiting for?!
