I recently was given two large garbage bags of trimmings. I have been for awhile just making budder with the trim by kiefing some of trim and discarding the kiefed trim. Then adding in several ounces of unkiefed trim and cooking it forever in my crock pot.
I had the patience enough one night to harvest an entire oz of kief. I decided that I would make cannibis tincture with the oz of kief. I ended up kiefing around another 1/8thoz and adding it to the mason jar making the total 34.7g of kief, I then added in 355ml of Everclear.
The mixture has been sitting in my freezer for the past two days and I have been vigorously shaking the mixture every few hours for 3-10 minutes.
I have been reading that most people who have success with tincture pre-heated the trim or bud to decarboxlize it. I skipped that step with my Kief, when I made the mixture I was under the assumption that just kief didn't need this step.
The mixture is light brown to green and opaque, smells heavily floral, also I think sour (my girl didn't agree with that)
Should I bother heating the mixture up at all before straining later this week?
I will update this thread with pictures and my results.
Ps. I can add trim or even more kief to the current mixture. (Sorry for length)
