- Break up the cannabis as much as you can.
- Then you need to decarboxylate it in order to activate it.
- Place this decarboxylated cannabis in a glass jar.
- Then, fill the jar with the high proof alcohol and leave a tiny gap amid the top of the liquid and the lid.
- Let the concoction absorb, give it a good shake multiple times in a day.
It’s all up to you to put the amount of cannabis in the jar. The more the cannabis, the stronger the tincture. The same is valid for the duration for which you leave the tincture to absorb. The longer the duration, the more alcohol will suck away the cannabinoids from the cannabis. When the soaking is accomplished, then strain the liquid and keep it in a container.
