Hey @Stephen I have a scientific question for you re tinctures and winterization: is it possible to winterize straight MCT oil? Whenever I winterize my MCT tincture with Everclear it seems that I’ve been losing a lot of the THC that’s captured in the oils and waxes that the ethanol is separating. I thought that if I could de-wax and try to winterize the MCT oil as much as possible before I add the flower maybe I could retain most of the THC while removing most of the wax and solids.
My concern is that the flower itself is adding cellulose and chlorophyll to the tincture, so even if I get the wax out of the MCT oil I think the flower is going to add some of that substance back. Is this correct? I’m really trying to make a tincture that is both not like consuming cooking oil and not so strong with ethanol that it burns.
TIA for your help.
