Making tincture with dry flower

Discussion in 'Weed Edibles' started by winks00, Apr 2, 2021.

  1. ok, so I have been making tincture for a long time and have gotten fairly good at making tincture, but today I have a different question that I never thought I would need to ask..
    I don't know how it happened, but while cleaning today I found about 4 ozs of flower that must have been hidden in a random drawer for several months.. since all 4 were in one large zip lock bag, the flower in the bag is very dry. It would definitely taste terrible if smoked, but I am curious if I can still use It to make tincture?? I know I can make the tincture, however will it have any strength at all?

    thank you for all your help!!

  2. If there is no Mold i see no reason why you would not. People make tinctures with vaporized material f.ex. they just use more. Psychedelic Sam has a good tincture thread here

  3. Most claim that Cannabis looses roughly 10 to 20% of it's potency per year.
    A few months is no big deal. I routinely have jars I don't get to for 6 months.

  5. I made all my tincture with a crock pot and oven to decarbs. I bought the ardent fx and my tinctures doubled in potency. It works well. Decarbs then infuses. Done.

  7. The nova is to small for my needs and the fx is literally perfect. I do 1.5-2oz of flower each time and it makes me more tincture then i can swallow. Plus I got a deal on it. Unfortunately I had to Warrenty it when I first got it but it’s been fine every since. I actually set it up and forget it while im doing all my rosin pressing.

    As a caregiver grower I make a lot of concentrates and other than rosin I routinely dry my herb before making a tincture or feco or sift hash. Same for bubble hash although I rarely make it anymore.

    I dry herb before decarbing in my nova fx as well.

    Too much moisture can make a gooey mess. It's much easier to get the moisture out before rather than later. Only in rosin do I use regular hydrated buds.
