The tincture is one of the more conservative ways to use marijuana hash oil. This tincture is an alcohol extract of cannabis hash. Some users use glycerin for extraction.
Here’s what you will need to make it:
- 3 ounces of 80 proof alcohol
- 1 gram of cannabis hash oil
- 4 one ounce bottles, used for eye drops
- Glass Jar with an air-tight lid
Combine in your glass jar, 3 ounces of drinking alcohol with your ounce of hash oil, or in a 3:1 ratio, according to the strength of your hash oil. Seal the mixture and put it in the freezer for 6 or more days, shaking a few times per day. Now store your tincture in your one-ounce eye drop bottles. Before taking, you should first calculate how much THC each dropper and each drop holds, according to the strength of the hash oil and how much you’ve used. This method has the easiest method of consumption. Use the eyedropper to squirt a measured amount of weed tincture under the tongue, hold for half a minute, then swallow it down. The THC and other cannabinoids will bring health benefits, but the psychoactive ingredients will have less effect because it may not have been activated by heat. As with any oral consumption, effects come on slow and then goes stronger for longer. It is important to make sure you know how much cannabinoids you are consuming, and not to re-dose before the effects take hold, which can take as much as one to two hours.

Edibles provide a way to consume your hash oil that affords the opportunity to activate the psychoactive cannabinoids. You need only put your hash oil into your edible at the right time and temperature if you have some cooking expertise. If you don’t, you can still enjoy great edibles. Just prepare some hash oil butter first, then add to your food as you choose.
Here’s how. You’ll need:
- 1 gram of hash oil
- 1/3 cup of butter, or coconut butter
- 16 ounces of water
Combine all your ingredients in a pan on low and heat for 30 minutes. It’s important to not let the mixture bubble, as this could destroy cannabinoids. Transfer the mixture to the refrigerator and let sit overnight. The hash butter will rise to the top. Remove from water and measure to know how much butter you have and the strength of the butter. You can then use this hash butter with your recipes, or even just put it on a piece of toast and consume. Some people greatly enjoy the taste, while others want to just get it down the hatch. As with all edibles, dosing is important to make sure you measure it carefully, then try a piece and wait two hours before redosing.
Hash oil can be vaporized using vapor pens that are designed to be able to handle hash oil. You will have to check with the manufacturer to find out how their pen functions and if you will be getting vapor or smoke from the pen.
Hash oil can be applied topically for all kinds of skin conditions and arthritic pain. Hash oil with activated THC can absorb into the skin, so it’s important to be aware of dosage, even when applying topically.
Smoking Hash Oil
There are two main ways to smoke hash oil, one is with an oil rig, the other on a spliff or joint. Smoking hash oil with an oil rig is the same as smoking other wax dabs with a rig. The basic process is described on our page here: https://www.ncsm.nl/english/best-ways-smoke-wax-dabs You will need an oil rig, titanium nail, butane torch, and a carb cap. Superheat the nail, apply the hash oil with the dabber end of your carb cap, cover nail intake with the other end and suck in the smoke.
To smoke hash oil with a spliff, add the hash oil when rolling on top of the herbal weed. This is a good way to add a kick to a cheap pot. It may take some practice to get it smoking properly. It’s also possible to add on top of the weed in a bowl. Dab it on to the side of the bowl to avoid it saturating the intake, but not too close to the side as to miss the weed, as pure oil is more likely to catch fire. You want it between the intake and the bowl edge, on top of the weed.
