    How long in the freezer to dry out? Can I use something like Damp rid and put in a giant ziploc bag?

    Ok. Using kitchen doses since I have no scale, etc. Say I have 2 Tablespoons of somewhat coarsely ground weed that's been decarbed. How much everclear should I use with these 2 tablespoons to make a significantly concentrated tincture? I've tried to read through all the pages in this post, but haven't seen concise measurements, not to say they aren't here, just didn't see it. Husband has brain metastases and we're in process of moving on to RS oil, but making tincture now since faster and easier. Desperate times...

    I am planning on doing the heat method but dont have time today to finish, i put the jar on my dryer as i gotta do laundry and put stuff around it so it wont vibrate off. But figure the vibration will be like a long slow shaking up of it.... ill try the long soak time number two but trying to get something faster for a parkinsons sufferer...

    GB i got an a solution! Tape your jar to your wifes vibrator put some fresh d cells in that baby and leave her for the day.... lol. On serious note, thanks, it was just a random medicated idea, i get a million, most are foolish but once in a while they work out .

    Sure hopin this helps parkinsons like the videos iv seen...

    Yeah so. I AM the wife, but all viable suggestions are appreciated. Unfortunately, your suggestion is crass and crude and in no way helpful, i.e. not viable. Not sure why I came to this site for help with a serious issue. No help, no answers, just a bunch of dopers doping

    The long soak on a low temp heat pad works. Well.

    I sincerely apologise for the oversight of your gender and offense. I was just being a smart ass as thats just me...did not intend to offend.

    Im new to the tinticure thing so my advice would be guess only, but most of what iv read is just enough to cover it. Im assuming if you got too dilutted you could always do the heat method for a bit and concentrate it up... but ive made one whole batch so far so im no expert at all.

    How long is long on a heating pad?

    First batch pretty mellow but will be a nice grade for wanting just the edge taken off and not having the mind wander... i really enjoyed the floral flavor...

    I let it soak at least 6 weeks before I start using it. I usually just keep the bud in the jar after that and just strain a bottle full as needed.

    Just made a batch of tincture. 18 grams of buds. Decarb at 230°f for 40 minutes. Ground in a coffee grinder. Then 120ml of Everclear in a mason jar. Mixed and shaken for a bit.

    Hot water bath for 20mins. Strained then the plant matter was washed two more times with more alcohol.

    Total liquid was 200ml after the washes. I boiled the alcohol back down to 100ml. One dropper bottle filled. The rest stored.

    Anyone ever try a magnetic beaker mixer? You know the ones where u put a lil plastic coated magnet in the jar, or by design a beaker, then set it on a special unit that has a magnetic deal in it and it spins the peice in the jar? You could get 24/7 agitation that way!
    Havent tried it just an idea

    I dosed two people. One got half of the dropper. The other got a full dropper.

    The first guy was mellow. The second was blazed.


    The green Dragon went back in the water bath and was reduced a further 20ml. So, 18 grams bud reduced down to 2 fluid ounces.

    I'm guessing 20 grams of buds. Two separate strains are in the oven. After its decarbed. It'll be added to the previous batch of Green Dragon. It's been stored in a pint mason jar since. I added more everclear to about a total of 150ml.

    The 20 grams bud will be ground in a coffee grinder and the alcohol boiled down to 100ml.

    Next crop. Ill add more.

    And it's strong. Really strong. I reduced it to 150ml instead of 100ml. By volume the powdered weed made up 50ml.

    One full dropper taken in the early evening will leave a buzz the next morning. 1/2 a dropper works.

    Holding the tincture in your mouth for 10mins brings it on 5 minutes later. I'd say an all around 20 mins for full effect.
