Homemade Cannabis CBD Tincture

CBD tincture is a straight forward and easy natural medicine recipe, and the perfect project for a beginner herbalist.
Prep Time 40 minutes
Active Time 5 minutes
Infusing Time 42 days
Total Time 45 minutes
Yield 1 cup
Cost $3


  • 3/4 cup dried cannabis buds
  • 1 cup vodka approximately


  • Decarboxylate your buds by spreading them out in a single layer on a sheet pan and bake at 230°F for 40 minutes.
  • Put the buds into a jar. (Don’t worry too much about amounts, just fill whatever size jar you want to use about 3/4 full with buds. It all depends on how much cannabis you have access to and how much tincture you want to make.)
  • Fill the jar with vodka, making sure to cover all of the buds. Cover the jar with a lid and put it in a cool and dark place to infuse for at least 6 weeks. 
  • Strain the tincture with a fine mesh sieve when ready to use.


The tincture can be left to infuse for several months if you want, it won’t ever go bad and will continue to get stronger.
For an alcohol free tincture vegetable glycerine can be used instead of the spirits.
