    I make my topical rub from 91% ISO, bud/trim, and a little olive oil. Let it sit 6-10 weeks and strain. And yes, it relieves pain :)

    Tincture review- I did the warm method described on the first page. I used grassomatic auto ak, it didn't yield for shit so I just used the entire plant buds and all. Taste is poor but mixed its fine, its a very dark green color, when I strained it through the cheese cloth some trichs still made it through, potency is pretty wicked, an eye dropper full has me high. Was going to do a shot but I think a shot would put a horse down lol. I'm happy with how it turned out and I would try it again in the future

    would the warm method work if i just leave it in the closet for 2 months and shake it everyday instead of putting it in a warm spot like under a window?


    and anyone that made a successful warm method tincture, decarbing the bud matter?

    I didn't use bud man. I used mostly leaf and just a tiny bit of bud. But there was about 35 grams and I used 2 cups of everclear

    i just tried tincture for the first time. i've been toking since 1969. i'm impressed. 2 small drops and i had a lovely buzz and no pain. i usually get very uncomfortable after sitting for awhile. i've been sitting for a couple hours and feel fine.

    i've been eating pot but i think i may switch to this. nasty firecrackers or delicious tincture...

    the great thing is, i have 2 bottles of it and it was free. :)

    Try putting the drops under you tongue, I put two drops at a time and hold for 10 seconds, I do this 4-6 times so 8 to 12 droplets.
    the buzz will come quickly, easily within 15 minutes you will be buzzed.
    to use a tincture under your tongue the alcohol must be flavored so it does not burn, I use honey and vanilla in my alcohol tincture to sweeten and reduce the burn
    Peace,

    good point. i put it on my tongue at first, but after some reading realized it's an under the tongue thing.

    so you just do a couple drops at a time and do that a few times each session. that's a great idea and i'll do it next time. the more i have under my tongue, the more i want to swallow.

    i'm doing 6 drops at a time every hour or so. the guy i got it from takes 2 droppers full.
    there are about 20 to 25 drops in a dropper, i get a nice buzz on 6 drops, 2 droppers full would kill me.

    he doesn't use alcohol. after reading dozens of posts of people saying they've tried a few different tictures, and didn't get a buzz or any relief, i'm really impressed with this stuff.

    as i'm getting more used to it, i'm upping the dosage each time. i was surprised to hear that he uses around a gram of bud per bottle, i thought it would be more than that. one bottle should last me 2 to 3 days. i'm thinking with larger doses, i won't be doing it every hour.

    i smoke 3.5 grams a day so i'm definitely going to get more tincture. i've smoked one joint so far today. i would usually be 1/2 way through my 3rd by now.

    i read about tinctures years ago but kept reading posts about people not getting high so i blew it off. apparently, even with good quality, some get high and some don't.

    i usually "prime the pump" when i eat pot by taking a few tokes 1/2 hour after eating it. i'm thinking it might be the same deal with the tincture. so about 15 minutes after taking it, i take a few tokes.

    i'm having to look at a mirror to make sure i'm regulating how big a dose i take. i ate way too much pot once and i never want to do that again.

    i'm now a tincture fan for sure. you can teach an old dog new tricks. :)


    i'm trying to cut back on smoking/vaping and i just had a great idea. a fire cracker with 1/2 a gram in it, and tincture to give me a bounce once in awhile.
    i'm going to give that a go tomorrow. eating one gram gets me perfectly high so 1/2 gram and some drops should be fun.

    What is the most common thing people do wrong to ruin batches?

    My guess would be rushing it to much.
