Default Modified glycerin tincture.

I have been making the pure grain alcohol tincture for some time and thanks to HHHG's glycerin tincture updates I have experimented a bit and come up with this quick method for glycerin tincture. I modified my canna capsules recipe for the tincture.

Ingredients:
1/4 pint food grade glycerin.
2 grams loose keif.

Take a 1/2 pint canning jar and fill it half way with glycerin.
Thoroughly mix in 2 grams keif. (be sure to lick mixing device clean)
Screw lid on tightly.
Preheat oven to 230 f / 110 celsius.
Place sealed jar into oven.
After one hour swirl contents to settle any matter on top and continue for a
total 8 hours.
Let cool and put into dropper vials.(be sure to lick the 1/2 pint jar clean,or use fingers and lick them clean)
Try a half dropper (lick the dropper) first to get a feel for the medicine.
It is sweet as is and can be added to coffee/tea with no off taste. It is even palatible as is, nice canna flavor.
Please feel free to constructively criticize or add your opinion.
I have made this twice with good result. Ale

Hey Zig. I use a canning jar,I hope I put that in the OP. They are heat treated glass and will withstand 230f no problem and work fine tightly sealed. I have done this many times its really a mess free way of going about it. Ale.

This is intresting I have read about glycerin before. I have some experience making the green dragon or alcohol tincture of cannibis. youve tried both now so how do they compare?? intresting stuff eh?

Good luck with your further experiments . I think i may have to give this a whirl myself.

Peace

So how do tinctures compare to smoking the same herb?

BubsNugs The glycerin tincture is very similar to the green dragon or grain alcohol tincture in effect and duration of effect. The reason I changed from alcohol to glycerin is that glycerin is a healthier alternative and it tastes much better than the GD. Glycerin tincture is much safer to make, as I am no longer double boiling alcohol. Using kief is a lot less mess, no straining ect., just skim a bit of sludge off the top when its done.

Kinghill.So how do tinctures compare to smoking the same herb?

Very much like a brownie buzz. Primarily a body stone.

You may want to play around with times and temps. I have found the described method adequate for our needs.

Sort of reminds me of the Karova milk bar in A Clockwork Orange. Maybe we can get the soda's on tap like in the movie. LOL. Lets not be going out afterwords and singing Fred Astaire tunes and kicking the shit out of old men though. LOL

Hey alegoblin

Nice to see my thread inspired your own experiments with tincture. I too prefer glycerin over alcohol now, at least for dropping on the tongue. Grain alcohol is like fire.

8 hours is a pretty fast cook time compared to the several days I heated mine on a candle/coffee warmer, or the 2 months I let another batch activate in a cold dark jar.

I also like the idea of using hash instead of bud. My bud-made glycerin tincture tastes like cannabis and sweet syrup, but is very tolerable and nothing like edibles infused with cannabutter.
