I don't have pics to do a proper tut on this but just have to share, been having such great success with pain relief and energy for patients. MCT oil is coconut oil that has I believe lauric acid being removed, this keeps the oil in a liquid state making it perfect for a tincture. Unlike glycerin which can eat up a cap, this can also be capped up. Ingredients Bud and about 10% trim to the ratio of bud for whole plant therapy - I use 4 grams per O of oil MCT oil, I use the type made from coconut oil and is not derived from palm Turmeric lecithin ground black pepper Equipment Measuring spoons and cups double boiler spatula scale for weighing herb oven or someway to decarb pan and foil to decarb bottles to store droppers for dosing cheesecloth and receptacle to drain into press if needed Depending on the type being made, THC decarbed in the oven at 220 for one hour, CBD requires two hours. I decarb in a pan that is foil wrapped. I use as much as I can in an ounce of oil. 4 ground grams of bud is the most I can fit in. Decarb the bud, measure the MCT oil, place it in a double boiler. Remove the pan from the oven, but do not uncover until it reaches room temp. Measure your herb, it losses weight with decarb so if an O is needed for the tincture, add about 5 grams more to make up for loss before decarbing to be safe, you can store extra in freezer for future use. You can finger "grind" it once decarbed it falls apart easily. Place the desired amount into the measured MCT oil in the double boiler. You can wrap your herb in cheesecloth or simply add it to the oil and strain. You can alternately use a ball jar and water bath instead of a double boiler, just make sure to place a jar ring or something under the mason jar so there is no direct heat to crack the glass. For each Ounce of tincture being made, add 1 teaspoon of turmeric, 1 teaspoon of lecithin, 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper or peppercorns. I "cook" this over low heat for 24 hours, I let it rest over night turning off the heat, then turn the heat back on the next morning. Stirring, or if in jar shaking, every hour or so. I do not know the science behind this, but letting it rest and cool, then reheating seems to make a better tincture. Once done, simply strain through cheesecloth or another type strainer. You can add flavoring to this, it does not taste very good to me but others don't seem to mind the taste. One that seems to really cover up the taste is Watermelon, and another is Butter rum, that taste like a straight up shot of booze lol. I have an old sausage press I use to press out the oil from the herb. Cannabis holds onto a boat load, you loss a lot if you don't press it. Also it is much easier if it is warmed when pressed. If you don't have a press, simply squeeze it out by twisting the cheesecloth as much as you can. Place in tincture bottles. If you need to have a specific dose or strength, just ask, I can help you with the math Store in a cool, dark place, this will stay good for up to two years depending on the age of the MCT oil.
