Tinctures are a great option for beginners because dosing is much easier to gauge as you can titrate up or down to find your perfect balance. Now that you know the basics when it comes to CBD tinctures, it’s time to make your own. To get your toes wet, one of the simplest beginner recipes is to create a CBD oil tincture at home. One of the primary reasons I love using cannabis products is that they can help promote a good night’s rest, especially during unsettling times. To establish a healthy sleep routine, practice the same wind-down rituals night after night to signal to your brain that it’s time for rest. CBD can become a part of that bedtime ritual. Try making this CBD tincture for your best sleep ever! YIElD: 4 1/2 ounces (135 ml) TARGET DOSE: 5 mg CBD | 0.3 mg THC per ml, (see pages 31 and 36 for more on dosing calculations) EQUIPMENT: Digital scaleTwo 8-ounce (240-ml) sterilized mason jarsMeasuring cupSmall saucepanThermometerOven mittCheeseclothFine-mesh strainerAmber glass bottle with dropper capFunnel INGREDIENTS: 7 grams decarboxylated CBD-rich flower (page 42)2 tablespoons (5 g) dried lavender1 tablespoon (1 g) dried chamomile1/2 teaspoon dried valerian root1/2 teaspoon dried passion flower3/4 cup (177 ml) MCT oil or fractioned coconut oil INSTRUCTIONS: Weigh out 7 grams of CBD-rich decarboxylated cannabis flower. In a Mason jar, combine the cannabis, lavender, chamomile, valerian root, passion flower, and MCT oil. Seal the top tightly.Fill the bottom of a small saucepan with water, making sure to allow enough space so that the water will not hit the top of the Mason jar. Set the Mason jar inside and begin to heat on low. Continue to heat over a gentle boil (around 200°F [93°C]) for 2 hours, making sure the water does not exceed 211°F (99°C). Check in frequently and refill the saucepan with water as needed due to evaporation. When finished, remove the Mason jar safely with an oven mitt and let the jar cool.Prepare the cheesecloth by placing it over the fine-mesh strainer. Pour the infused MCT oil over the cheesecloth into a clean Mason jar. Gently press (but do not wring out) to extract the oil. Once the mixture has cooled, transfer your CBD oil mixture into an amber glass bottle using a funnel and secure with a dropper cap. Store at room temperature in a dark cabinet to best preserve and shake well before using. NOTE: This recipe can also be made using high-proof Everclear. Simply mix the cannabis and ingredients with high-proof alcohol in your Mason jar. Close the jar and place the mixture in a cool, dark place. Let it sit for about 2 to 3 weeks, agitating the Mason jar every so often. Once ready, use cheesecloth and a fine mesh strainer to filter out the herbs, and place the tincture into a dropper bottle for easy use. To store properly, keep your CBD tincture in a cool, dark place. Never heat!
