The History of Cannabis Tincture


The history of Cannabis tinctures is vast and can be traced back as far as 5000 BC. They have been used for medicinal purposes that range from pain relief, appetite stimulation, and sleep induction.

Tinctures were first introduced in modern times as a method of Cannabis extraction sometime around the mid-18th century. They were made by mixing alcohol with Cannabis in a liquid form. The alcohol evaporates, leaving concentrated cannabinoids that could be ingested through droplets under the tongue or mixed in food or drink. 

Advantages of Cannabis Tincture


Advantages of Cannabis Tincture



Cannabis tinctures are convenience products as you can take them virtually anywhere without any preparation.


Once consumed, you won’t have any smell that lingers on your breath or clothing.

Easy to Dose

Cannabis tinctures are versatile and easy to dose. They’re perfect for people who prefer a more focused experience rather than the effects of edibles or dabbing.

Fast Acting

The primary advantage of using Cannabis tinctures is that they provide relief within minutes after taking them. Tinctures are known as one of the best ways to administer Cannabis because they allow patients to achieve relief in just seconds rather than hours.

Fewer Calories

Since they are alcohol-based tinctures, the only calories that come with them are the alcohol. Cannabis tinctures are a lot less calorific than other forms of Edible Cannabis. 


Tinctures, commonly used in Cannabis edibles, can be sanitary if correctly handled and stored. The Alchohol (if used in the extraction) adds another layer of Sanitary protection. 

Shelf Life

Cannabis tincture can last anywhere between 3-12 months, depending on how well you store it.

Tinctures may even last up to 2 years if kept in a cool dark place; however, potency may begin to change, so I advise you to check any batch you have not tested in over three months. 


Tincture potency is typically measured by the number of active cannabinoids in milligrams per milliliter. For instance, a tincture with 3% THC will have around 0.003 grams of THC in every milliliter.

Your metabolic rate, and other foods you have digested, affect the absorption rate of Cannabis Edibles and tinctures.

5 Tips for How to Make a Quality Homemade Cannabis Tincture


1. Choose your solvent wisely! 

Choose the proper solvent (alcohol, vegetable glycerin, or olive oil).

 There are two main types of solvents: polar and non-polar. Non-polar solvents like hexane will only extract the non-polar compounds, while polar solvents like ethanol extract both non-polar and polar compounds. 

A mixture of both is ideal for extracting all the potential medical goodies from your plant material.

2. Find the correct jar (mason jars work well)

Buy a jar that seals tightly, preferably glass or plastic mason jars, which you can find at most grocery stores.

3. Choose the best cannabis strain for your condition and desired effects

Choose the best Cannabis for your needs. You can use any strain or variety of Marijuana for this recipe, but use something with a strong flavor profile if you want it to come through in the final product. If you want no taste, choose an indica or hybrid strain bred for its high THC content and low terpene content.

4. Incorporate other herbs and ingredients that you want in your tincture

Marijuana is not the only herb you can use in a cannabis tincture. You can also use different herbs and ingredients to create your remedy.

For instance, you can use lavender, cinnamon, peppermint oil, eucalyptus oil, rosemary, cloves, thyme, or oregano to make your cannabis tincture. You should know that these ingredients are not meant to replace Marijuana because they lack THC content.

5. Grind Evenly 

Grind Cannabis up finely to extract as many active ingredients as possible.
