  • 14-28g Decarboxylated Botanicals, per cup of Alcohol
  • 2-5 cups Grain Alcohol; minimum 150 proof (75% ABV)
  • Note: Vegetable glycerin (VG) may be substituted for alcohol, but note VG tinctures are about 1/3 as potent as an alcohol tincture for the same amount of botanicals
  • Important: CAUTION: MATERIALS ARE HIGHLY FLAMMABLE. Could cause injury. Never use an open flame natural gas or propane burner or permit smoking around the cooking process.
  • Airmid Decarb (sold separately) and Thermometer



  1. Decarb your botanicals in your Airmid Decarb (sold separately) or you may decarb using aluminum thin foil and set high in an oven for 15-30mins.
  2. Set your temperature to 130°F and then press the 4 HOUR TINCTURE button. You can also use the 8 HOUR button for a stronger flavor and deeper intensity.
  3. After the cycle is complete, unplug the unit and remove the head of the appliance. 
  4. Grab a large bowl or measuring cup and secure your filter bag in it (Warning: Hot). Pour the contents slowly through a filter, squeezing gently to get all of your extraction.
  5. Add your tincture to a dark glass bottle, or other opaque container, and store in a cool, dark place.

Recipe Note

For best results, do not pre-grind botanicals. Adjust botanical weight according to personal preference. Do not add water or lecithin. Refrigerate or store your tincture in a cool, dry place. Properly stored, alcohol tinctures may keep indefinitely.

You can use as little as 3-5grams of decarboxylated botanicals per set depending on the desired outcome. The less amount of botanicals, the less potent it is.
