Cannabis Tincture

Cannabis Tincture


  • 14 grams cannabis, coarsely ground
  • 12 ounces vegetable glycerin


  1. Preheat the oven to 240°F.
  2. Place the cannabis on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes to activate the THC and CBD, resulting in decarboxylated cannabis.
  3. Transfer the decarboxylated cannabis to a glass jar.
  4. Pour the glycerin over the cannabis, being sure that the glycerin covers it.
  5. Secure the jar with an airtight lid and gently stir the contents by rolling the jar back and forth in your hands.
  6. Keep the jar a dark place at room temperature for two months. Agitate the contents of the jar intermittently (once or twice a week is fine) by rolling it back and forth in your hands.
  7. Stretch cheesecloth across the top of a large spouted measuring cup or bowl, and secure with a rubber band or twine around the edge.
  8. Carefully pour the infused glycerin over the cheesecloth.
  9. Lift the cheesecloth and squeeze any remaining glycerin into the measuring cup or bowl.
  10. Pour back into the glass jar or into dropper bottles. Store in a cool, dark place or in the refrigerator for up to 18 months.
