Preparing the Tincture for Your Cannabis Candy

Cannabis tincture is produced using a distillation process and contains concentrated cannabinoids and other therapeutic molecules found in the marijuana plant. It requires breaking up the decarboxylated dried buds and plant materials and submerging them in a solvent. Usually, high-proof alcohol is the chemical mostly used to remove all the precious THC and other cannabinoids from the plant.

The resulting highly potent product is a concentrated, liquid cannabis solution.
