    Gentlemen,



    I think you should read this text below, click on the link to see the whole thread:



    check it out!

    I would like to share with you a process for an excellent non-alcoholic tincture. This sublingual Cannabis Medicine is spreading quickly through our Medical Community in Oregon.

    You will need ONE CUP of food grade glycerin.
    ONE OUNCE of top grade bud....chopped up with scissors or a burst in a cuisinart.
    A Quart jar with a good SEAL.

    Put the ingredients in the jar and give it a shake for about 5-10 minutes a day for two months. (IT IS WORTH the TIME!)

    Press out the glycerin and strain well; and put in brown bottles with eyedropper.

    I use a professional food press, so I get back the total amount of glycerin plus a little extra. A ricer will also work well if you line it with cheesecloth.

    The medicine is as good as what you put into it. I find this a very good way to medicate at social functions. I carry mine in an herb tincture bottle. A drop or a dropper under the tongue is a good way to find relief.

    - friend of mine wrote this..
    But for me, this shit is killer.. I did three drops first time, and I had a hard time moving from the spot that I was in, 3 hours later, it lifted a tad bit but shit its like smoking a blunt of some widow its crazy.

    More Than Alive - Vegetable Glycerin





    Excerpt from The ABC Herbal


    [​IMG] Glycerine (or glycerol) is a natural component of all fats and oils. When fats are digested in the body, they are broken down into fatty acids and glycerine. Hence, glycerine is a non-toxic, natural food substance. It is also a good solvent of herbal constituents and a preservative. To top it off, glycerine is also sweet tasting by does not cause blood sugar problems.
    Because glycerine is slightly sweet, it helps mask the disagreeable taste of many herbs. Other most pleasant tasting herbs are actually delicious when prepared in glycerine. So, by carefully, selecting herbs for both taste and efficacy, it is possible to make herbal preparations which not only work, but taste great. That way, you don't have to fight your children to have them take them.
    You can make a simple, herbal glycerite by simmering herbs in a mixture of 60% glycerine and 40% purified water for two to three hours. We have generally used about 1/4 cup of cut and sifted, dried herbs per 1 cup of glycerin/water solution. When you strain this solution, bottle it and store it in a cool, dark place. It retains its effectiveness for two to three years.

    This is pure 100% USP food grade vegetable glycerine (glycerin). It is used in cosmetics and body care products to assist in retaining moisture and is helpful in pulling oxygen into the skin. Vegetable glycerine is a natural emollient that adds a cooling effect on the skin and has become a predominant ingredient in most skin care products and soaps. Vegetable glycerine is also the principal medium for the manufacturing of non-alcohol based herbal extracts, which are called glycerites. This makes for a sweet alcohol free extract that can be easily administered to children, animals and those with alcohol sensitivities. Kosher certified and suitable for food and cosmetic use.
    Vegetable Glycerine is a clear, colorless, and odorless liquid with an incredibly sweet taste having the consistency of thick syrup. It is used as an agent in cosmetics, toothpaste, shampoos, soaps, herbal remedies, pharmaceuticals, and other household items. Because it is soluble in both, water and alcohol, its versatility is a major benefactor in its purported growth and popularity within the manufacturing sector. It is invaluable as a natural source ingredient with emollient like properties which can soften and soothe the skin and it assists the outer epidermis in retaining moisture. This helps to explain why it is one of the most popular cosmetic additives used today.
    Other uses include its solvency action which aides herbalists in extracting botanical properties from plant materials without the use of alcohol. This is especially helpful for those with alcohol sensitivities as most liquid herbal extracts contain alcohol. But given its severely limited shelf life, extracts made from Vegetable Glycerine typically have a shelf life of 14-24 months whereas alcohol extracts can have an extended shelf life of 4-6 years.
    Vegetable Glycerin: Clear sweet and odorless liquid. Glycerin is a naturally occurring by product of soapmaking. It is believed that glycerin helps the skin remain moisturized by drawing moisture to it.
    You can make a liquid sweetener by adding Stevia white extract powder to Vegetable Glycerine. This is not recommended for diabetics because it will effect the blood sugar levels.
    Vegetable Glycerine is a sweet substance typically obtained from palm or coconut oils. It is an alternative to alcohol for preserving herbal tinctures.

    From Our Reading and/or Experience...

    • <LI class="">We use this glycerin to make all our glycerites (extracts / tinctures). Of course, it can be used in many other types of remedies, such as, lotions, hair products, soaps, etc. <LI class="">Glycerin can be used to benefit anyone: men, women (including before, during or after pregnancy, and nursing), children and animals. <LI class=" sfhover">It can be used as often as you would like, and in any way you choose.
    • Glycerin should be stored in a dark, dry, and cool place.

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    Jump to: navigation, search
    A glycerite is a fluid extract of an herb or other medicinal substance made with glycerin.
    According to King's American Dispensatory (1898)a glycerite is:
    Glycerita.&#8212;Glycerites. Related entry: Glycerinum (U. S. P.)&#8212;Glycerin Other tomes: USDisp SYNONYMS: Glycerina (Br.), Glycerines (Br.), Glycerata, Glyceroles, Glycerolata, Glycerols, Glycerates, Glycemates. By this class of preparations is generally understood solutions of medicinal substances in glycerin, although in certain instances the various Pharmacopoeias deviate to an extent. The term Glycerita as here applied to fluid glycerines, or solutions of agents in glycerin, is preferable to the ordinary names, "glyceroles," "glycerates," or "glycemates," etc., and includes all fluid preparations of the kind referred to, whether for internal administration or local application. Many solutions of glycerin or glycerin and water, are apt upon standing to develop microscopic cryptogams, unless a certain proportion of alcohol is added to the solutions. On this account, it is better to prepare many members of this class of solutions in small quantity at a time, and only as they are wanted [1]
    Glycerites are frequently used as a substitute for alcohol in tinctures, as a solvent that will create a therapeutic herbal extraction. Glycerine is less extractive and is approximately 30% less able to be absorbed by the body due to processing in the liver. Fluid extract manufacturers often extract herbs in hot water before adding glycerin to make glycerites to increase extraction.[2] [3][4]
    Glycerin will not extract the same constituents from plants that alcohol will. From "Herbal Preparations and Natural Therapies" by Debra St. Claire:
    • glycerin will extract the following - sugars, enzymes (dilute), glucosides, bitter compounds, saponins (dilute), and tannins
    • absolute alcohol will extract the following - alkaloids (some), glycosides, volatile oils, waxes, resins, fats, some tannins, balsam, sugars, and vitamins.[5]

    great FDD!!! I have never tried it before but to be honest I was messing around on the net one night a few months ago when I stumbled upon that thread this was before I new anything about growing and I didnt even know what a Vaperizor was.

    After reading that thread I studied what a vape was and bought one and through my reading I stumbled upon the growing comunity which I was unaware off.

    then the rest is history and I started my first grow. but I just noticed this thread still in my favorites last night and was like oh yea the THC drops. they sound tasty:mrgreen:

    I cant wait to try it but I dont have a harvest yet to do it with & dont feel like using purchased weed on this test run.

    Please whomever does this pls post your results as 1oz of good bud is a lot to use if it doesnt turn out as good as they say.

    But from reading the whole thread it seems that this works reall good!

    Im optimistic:mrgreen:


    but anyway dont forget to rep a brotha out:bigjoint:
