Cannabis Cheri Newsletter: Making Tinctures; Marijuana Infused Strawberry Recipes!


Hi Everyone!

Wow, what a week!  My friend Antonio Bascaro, 84, the world’s longest serving marijuana prisoner, was finally released from prison after serving 39 years for a nonviolent marijuana conspiracy offense.  There was unexpected good news besides the release, instead of having to go to a halfway house, Antonio was sent out to serve the remainder of his sentence on house arrest with his family.  I recently wrote about Antonio and other marijuana lifers for Cannabis Aficionado. I will more have more stories to share about this fascinating man, a veteran of the Bay of Pigs, in our next issue.  In the meantime, I am wishing Antonio and his family much happiness.  They have a lot of catching up to do!

Antonio Bascaro, the longest serving marijuana prisoner, is one of many marijuana prisoners waiting for justice reform.

Ask Cheri: Advice on Making Cannabis Tinctures

Cheri Sicard
Dear Cheri,

I recently signed up for your online cooking course and I’m interested in making an alcohol tincture. Here is my question.   You say that you pour the 1 cup of Everclear into the cannabis and then let it sit for 3 or 4 days.    I have a friend that puts the jar in the freezer for one hour and then strains it into a dish.   Do you know of this method and what is your knowledge on it?   Is it less effective than letting it sit for 3 – 4 days?
