The green dragon tincture is a tincture made with alcohol and cannabis flowers with a high concentration of THC.

This formula can be made with 1:1 CBD buds for example, for medicinal use; it is also possible to use a high alcoholic drink as a base for recreational use.

In order that the process can be done it is necessary that the cannabinoids are dissolved, and this is achieved when cannabis is heated together with a high grade alcohol. What we need is for the THC to be psychotropic.

For this purpose, decarboxylation is done, that is, a process in which carbon dioxide is released. At the same time the carboxyl is removed. By using this method in cannabis, the THC molecule is activated..

If you want to know a little more about decarboxylation and other methods to do it, I recommend you read this article: all you need to know about decarboxylation, it will be very useful.

Today we will focus on a type of cannabis tincture whose preparation includes vodka. In order to make this great and powerful mixture there are two options, the short way, where what you need is a container to heat it to bain-marie, and the long way where it is necessary to let the mixture rest inside a bottle for two long weeks.

Indeed, here we will show you how to do it the easy way. There is no need to make life difficult for yourself.



👾 What is needed for the cannabis infused liqueur?



In order to mix it with our favorite drink it is necessary to make the green dragon drink and thus be able to include it in the cocktail you prefer. So let’s see what ingredients we need.



  • Alcohol, vodka
  • Cannabis from 0.088 to 0.12 oz. (2.5-3.5 grams)
  • Grinder
  • Warming container

In addition to this, you require several instruments to carry out the process:

  • 1 mixer that can tolerate the heat produced by 0.26 US gal (1 liter) of liquid
  • 2 nitrous oxide chargers



  1. The first thing we will do to obtain your weed infused alcohol is to add inside the mixer the alcohol, I advise you to use the whole bottle. Then add the cannabis, as you will have it in buds, use your grinder to grind it and then put it in the mixer with the vodka.
  2. The second thing you will do is to release the gas, to do this you must connect the nitrous charger, this step you will do it twice. When you have done the procedure, wait a couple of minutes and then open the mixer.
  3. The following step is decarboxylation, which requires a bain-marie. So that cannabis has its effect it must be heated, thus the THC will be activated. Therefore, put the liquid in the container, where the water will be down heating to an approximate temperature of 200 degrees.
  4. When you add the liquid to the container where it will be heated you may be surprised, as it will have a greenish appearance. But, be careful, it still needs to heat up for the THC to activate.
  5. Keep everything on the fire for between 45 minutes to an hour, that will be enough to get it ready. It is normal that after the process the amount of alcohol is slightly minimized.
  6. It is also possible to make a green dragon tincture that is more intense, this will require that the amount of liquid is reduced. When this is done it is possible to use it for daily consumption, especially when you do not feel like smoking or when it has medicinal purposes. Its intake is done in a sublingual way.
  7. Turn off the fire when it has boiled, then you must strain the product to remove the cannabis particles. You can keep the marijuana you strained and reuse it or just throw it away. You will put all the liquid in a bottle preferably made of glass for better preservation.

Procedure for making the Green Dragon Recipe


You have your weed infused alcohol and it is ready to be used as a base for your favorite drink. Thus, you easily have an effective, powerful and high-performance alcohol substitute for a night full of fun.



🧐  Suggestion


Its flavor is impressive and it goes well with the drink you want, a good alternative is to use it as a base for liquor combined with:

  • Lemonade
  • Fresh lemons
  • Ice

You can add as much green dragon as you want, my suggestion is to start off carefully and not add too much. All you have to do is take a big pitcher, put the ice cubes, pour the amount of green dragon tincture you consider appropriate, then the lemonade and put some fresh lemon slices in the drink, ready.

It may seem that you don’t feel the effect, but we already know that when you take it in liquid or in food its effect takes a little longer to show up. So you better try it, feel its effects and you will be able to adjust quantities according to your experience.

The goal is to have a good time, with moderation in order to enjoy, so watch how much liquor you drink.

      Hi Peter,
      The temperature is in celsius and MCT oil is a derivative of coconut oil.

    I have developed a cold cook method to make whole plant tinctures, which preserves most of the precious terpenes and allows you to enjoy the benefits of the entire marijuana plant.
    First I Soak 1 oz decarbed bud with 8 oz 95% ever clear in a glass jar for 3 or 4 days, then pour everything into an ultrasonic cleaner (jewelry cleaner).I got mine on Amazon (pro elite ultrasonic cleaner).

    I didn’t like boiling my alcohol and pot, it just didn’t seem right, so I started looking at what the big boys do. They use giant sonification wands to break down the plant material. They were about $5000. So I thought why not try my wife’s jewelry cleaner on a small batch, it worked. the tiny sound wave bubbles broke down the plant material, without heat and forced all the good stuff into the solvent (everclear).

    Turn on the cleaner for 600 seconds (10 minutes) and watch the little bubbles attack the already weakened membranes of the plant after soaking for 4 days. I usually sonicate 6 times for 10 min ea. With 10 minutes rest between sonifications to cool alcohol down sonification creates heat, so remember that this is a cold cook. I try to keep temps under 90 degrees, But don’t use a fan to cool down. This will evaporate liquid to soon. Carefully pour portions of plant and liquid into a coffee filter, with paper filter, wring out plant material and liquid thru paper coffee strainer into 2 cup glass measuring cup. You should have about a 1/2 cup liquid. Set that aside. Put all used plant material back in jar with 8 more oz everclear, shake up, totally clean everything and do everything again the exact same way. This second cold cook gets everything that may have made it past the first cook. After second cold cook, you should have 1 cup liquid total. Clean everything again. Pour filtered liquid back into clean ultrasonic cleaner. add 10 oz. good quality coconut MCT oil to pot infused everclear. Put a small fan on top of ultrasonic cleaner and start evaporating alcohol from mixture, MCT oil barely evaporates, maybe 10 %. Let it evaporate over night, so You can start your day with the breakfast of champions. When you evaporate alcohol, give a stir occasionally to facilitate. Keep evaporating until there is no alcohol burn, unless you like that.

    I bought a Morpheus 1 to 1 seed from Pev Seeds 10% CBD and 10% THC, it’s 3 weeks from harvest, I can’t wait to make some super medicine with this recipe. In the past, I’ve only sonicated high THC strains, Runtz Muffin being one of them, thank you Pev for your incredible seeds.

    This recipe gives you the whole plant. Boiling a plant kills all the good stuff, while preserving only the THC. MCT oil is tasteless and odorless, so you only taste cannabinoids with no burnt after taste.

    I’ve been forced to consume at least a pound of tinctured pot trying to perfect this recipe. Someone had to do it! This is the result that I have been striving for. it really is wonderful. I bought my ultrasonic cleaner on Amazon. It’s the pro elite ultra sonic cleaner, it’s just the right size for this formula. Be very clean and wash everything with Dawn at every stage. You’ll get 8 to 10 oz. of very strong tincture. be careful. Enjoy!
