Most medical marijuana patients know that the THC in cannabis can be extracted in fat or oil in order to make edible treatments, but did you know that it can also be extracted in alcohol to make a tincture? Tinctures are a great alterative to smoking marijuana, and are relatively simple to make.

A tincture is a solution of a medicinal substance (marijuana in this case) in an alcoholic solvent. A tincture dose is delivered by a medicine dropper or teaspoon. While dosage varies between each patient, generally a typical dose is anywhere from 3-4 drops to 2 full droppers. The effect will last about 1-2 hours.

Before medicating with marijuana, you must first ensure you are in compliance with your state laws. Don’t have a marijuana card? MarijuanaDoctors.com has the largest database of qualified marijuana doctors in all legal states. Book an appointment today.


  • Sanitized glass jar
  • Finely ground marijuana (amount depends on size of jar)
  • High proof alcohol, such as Everclear or vodka
  • A few sprigs of fresh mint (optional)
  • Liquid dropper bottle


  1. Grind marijuana finely with a grinder or in a blender.
  2. Fill jar ¾ full with marijuana and mint sprigs.
  3. Fill the jar with the alcohol, leaving a few inches at the top so you can shake the jar and its contents. Be sure the lid is on tightly as the tincture may stain.
  4. Store jar in a dark, cool place and be sure to shake the jar one to two times a day.
  5. Strain tincture through a fine metal strainer or cheesecloth, and into a liquid dropper bottle.
