Tincture ratios

Post by RogerDoc » Sat Mar 12, 2022 10:09 pm

For an alcohol based AM tincture, what would be my alcohol to AM be? I plan to use the 2 month alcohol steeping method with dried AM caps. I would also like to know what would be an appropriate amount of tincture for a microdose? : 8-)

The tinctures I have bought are 7-10 g per 100 ml. Microdose varies a lot depending on person and batch. You need to calibrate on the batch used. Amanitadreamer describes how to do this. I find using teaspoon measure for testing a 10g/100ml tincture good, but my dose is more in to macro region. Be careful. I once overdosed by mistake a strong pantherina tincture. I was completely knocked out. Don’t test by taking several small doses, it can take 4 hours for the full effect to set in. Just take one dose per day maximum before you know what you are doing. Be patient. YMMV, as usual.
Arktos in my case refers to the bear, nothing else.
