"okp cannabis users: ever mess with creating your own tinctures?"
looking to move away from smoking and vaporizing. i'm in denver so tinctures are available but they are limited, generic ("indica" or "sativa"), and have no real strain info, at least on the recreational side. same for edibles and i hate edibles because they are so imprecise. i finally found a great spot with low yield + high quality flower and strains that work for me
i am aware that info on this stuff is out there on the internet but am looking for anyone's personal experience with creating tinctures on their own. thanks in advance!
Edit: I use a toaster oven set to ~200f. Grind up the bud, wrap it in foil (like an envelope) and put in the oven for 20-30 mins.
My favorite "quick" way to make an edible is decarb some bud (usually .25-.5g for me), then spread it one some peanut butter between graham crackers. Wrap this in foil and heat it until the peanut butter melts a bit (THC, CDB et al attach to the oil in the peanut butter). Eat it when it's cool enough for you.
When you measure the amount of bud you put into your edible on a scale, you can get pretty accurate w/ what dosage you like over time.

But you might want to try making canna coconut oil. Less of a mess than butter, keep it in the freezer so it stays solid. Getting the weed into fat > alcohol extracts. Preserves more of the active properties this way, I think. A rec store gummy vs your own dialed in coconut oil? No competition
