As you get started with making marijuana tincture at home, you might as well want to know what it is all about. This is probably the most underrated or underestimated products or consumables as compared to joints even though they render almost the same effect if not more.

What are marijuana tinctures?

The marijuana tinctures were probably the most primitive forms of cannabis medicines until they were banned in 1937. Making marijuana tincture doesn’t occupy bigger space and chances of an explosion are minimal. In short, you can consider this to be a less dangerous process.

The chemical composition of marijuana tinctures

This is apparently an alcoholic extraction of the plant material using ethanol between 25-60% resulting in a solution that’s alcohol-proof by 50 or120. However, in some tinctures, alcohol concentration might be as high as 90% or 180 proof.

Alcohol or ethanol is one of the most common types of solvents that help to break down acidic and basic components of the plant. For internal consumption, vinegar and glycerin or glycerol are used. However, they are not as efficient in chemical extraction from the original matter.

Production of marijuana tinctures

The basic production process of marijuana tinctures is almost like dissolving of sugar in water to make Kool-Aid which usually breaks down and liquefies in water and transfer their chemical composition to the resultant chemical.


  • Premium cannabis shake 1 ounce

  • Any hash for better potency

  • 2 cups Everclear liquor

  • Cannabis grinder

  • Aluminum foil

  • Sealable plastic bag

  • 1 amber glass eye dropper

  • 1 mason jar

  • Glass oven safe pan

  • Coffee filters 2

  • Cheesecloth pack 1

  • Measuring cup 2

  • Rubber band 2

  • Latex gloves 1 pair

  • Funnel 1


  • Preheat oven to 235°F. Place cannabis shake in a plastic bag and seal it and keep it in a freezer for approximately an hour. After an hour, put it in the oven-safe pan and spread evenly. Cover the pan with foil and put it in your oven and leave it for an hour.

  • After an hour take out the solution and let it cool but remember not to take out the foil else you will burn your hands. Transfer the cannabis to mason jar once it’s cooled and add alcohol, enough to cover the top portion. This jar can be stored in the freezer for about 6 months. Just remember to shake it every day.

  • After the designated time, pour the mixture through a funnel into a container. Clean the original jars and place coffee filters over the jars with rubber bands. Lastly, pour the tincture through the filter entirely.

Finally, enjoy your marijuana tinctures.
