Hello, wellness warriors and cannabis connoisseurs! If you're navigating the vast world of cannabis products, you've likely come across MCT oil tinctures. These potent potions are gaining popularity for their versatility and health benefits. At NirvanaDC Dispensary in Washington DC, we're here to guide you on crafting the perfect MCT oil tincture right at home.
Why MCT Oil?
MCT (Medium-Chain Triglycerides) oil is a type of saturated fatty acid derived from coconut oil or palm oil. It's favored in tinctures because:
It's easily digestible.
It can enhance the bioavailability of CBD, ensuring you get the most out of your tincture.
It's flavorless, making it perfect for sublingual use or mixing into foods and drinks.

Crafting Your MCT Oil Tincture:
Decarboxylation First: To activate the THC and CBD in your cannabis, you'll need to decarboxylate it.
Preheat your oven to 240°F (115°C).
Grind your cannabis coarsely.
Spread it evenly on a baking sheet.
Bake for 30-40 minutes, stirring occasionally
Allow it to cool.
Infusion Process: Place the decarboxylated cannabis in a glass jar. Pour in enough MCT oil to cover the cannabis.
Slow and Steady: Seal the jar and place it in a pot filled with water, ensuring the water level is below the jar's lid. Simmer on low heat for 2-3 hours. This gentle heat will infuse the MCT oil with cannabis compounds.
Strain and Store: After infusion, strain the mixture using a cheesecloth or fine strainer to remove plant material. Transfer the tincture to a dropper bottle for easy dosing. Store in a cool, dark place.
