make cbd tincture from trim

I was wondering if I could make some tincture out of it..I don’t want to go buy bubble bags though to turn into kief

Would this work?


Everclear is not available in Europe but "Spirytus Rektyfikowany" is. It is a 192 proof grain alcohol and can be ordered online.

Recovering Alcolics who are also diabetics should use oil based extraction ie cannabutter etc.

Should I dry the trim first? And I pulled out the decent buds from the trim and will count that as bud

There are several different methods you can use to extract hash oil from cannabis trim. Each method varies in its simplicity, scalability, and purity of output. Some of the most common extraction methods include:

Grade 4 material is nearly worthless, as the cost to extract the material can be greater than the cost of the material itself. In general, materials with less than 5% resin content should not be considered for oil extraction.

One popular method on how to make cannabis oil from trim is by using a hydrocarbon solvent such as butane. Butane is nonpolar, so it is useful for extracting terpenes and cannabinoids from solution without unwanted plant material such as chlorophyll.

Measuring for Potency, Identity, and Pesticides

Many extractors believe that the only time that an extract needs to be measured is when the product is shipped or maybe not even at all. A more refined approach includes measuring pesticides, potency, concentration, and identity before the trim is purchased.

Ethanol extraction is another common botanical extraction method to consider for your cannabis trim. Ethanol is designated GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) by the US Food and Drug Administration, and it is highly effective at separating cannabinoids and terpenes from plant material. Like butane, though, ethanol is highly flammable – so great care must be taken when extracting cannabis oil with this method.

Whether learning how to extract CBD, or how to extract THC from trimmings, hemp and cannabis trim can be obtained from a variety of producers, which means that the range of quality will also vary greatly. In our experience with CBD extraction, there is no difference in quality between trim from cannabis plants grown indoors versus outdoors. However, some less scrupulous purveyors sell their fan leaves and stems as cannabis trim.

However, the point is not necessarily the method here. The question is, “Is the sample representative of the truckload?” The answer to that question is where the science of statistics enters.
