Cannabis Tincture

Cannabis tincture can be used in a wide variety of recipes. 

Ingredients:

8 ounces spirit, such as Everclear, rum or vodka (at least 80 proof)

1 to 3 grams cannabis flower (see Note below)

Directions: 

Step 1 Preheat oven to 220F; spread cannabis on a small baking sheet. Bake cannabis for 45 minutes; transfer to a bowl and let cool.

Step 2 Pour alcohol into an 8-ounce glass jar and secure the lid.

Separately, place jar and cannabis in the freezer for 1 hour.

Add cannabis to alcohol in jar, seal tightly and shake tincture vigorously for several minutes. Return jar to the freezer for 24 hours, shaking jar at least 3 or 4 times during that period.

Step 3 Set a fine-mesh strainer over a large liquid measuring cup with a spout; line strainer with a paper coffee filter. Pour tincture through filter; discard filter. Using a small funnel, pour tincture into four 2-ounce dark-glass dropper bottles. Tincture is ready to use immediately, although it will become more potent (but darker and more bitter) over time. Store tincture in the refrigerator for up to 1 year. 

Notes Special Equipment: 8 ounce glass jar with lid; paper coffee filter, large measuring cup with spout, small funnel, four 2 ounce dark glass dropper bottles.  The tincture contains approximately 6 mg THC per tablespoon based on a 20% THC strain of cannabis.
