This was/is my 1st time attempting a cannabis tincture! After much research I decided Green Dragon was the easiest & simplest method of making a tincture. I purchased 94% alcohol - Global 94% (Quebec, Canada). I got a 1L jar, the biggest I could find. Most importantly I had just under 200g of very high grade bud, decarbed from my vaporizer. The bud was vaporized at many different temperatures so I figure I have a very good selection in there for my 1st time as I didn't want to decarb a bunch of bud in the oven and not get it right!
So I filled the 1L jar with the 200g vaped/decarbed high grade bud, after which I poured alcohol on it. This was done at the very beginning of June, the 1st to be precise. Since then its been sitting in a dark place and as I walk by it I shake it vigorously for 2-3 minutes as I read in the recipes I've read. It's been about 2 & a half months so I figure it's nearing the end.
After straining the material, I plan to fortify the solution by adding a bunch of trim & shake (another 100g+) that I've yet to decarb, and which I will be decarbing in the oven. I would be leaving the solution for another 2-3 months in a dark place, shaking it in passing!
Please advise if you think I can do or should have done something to improve!
Please let me know what you see wrong with what I've done or what you think about my process so far!
I'm greatly appreciative of any suggestions, tips, criticism.....anything you believe will help me, believe me I'd be greatly indebted!
