Is your ejuice similar to a tincture?

No, its definitely not made like a tincture.  We use a non-polar solvent (Medical grade Butane) in a ‘closed loop extractor’ to separate the cannabis oil from the plant.  The THC molecule is non-polar and as such requires a solvent which is also non-polar, this is what makes butane work so well.  Tinctures are generally made with vegetable Glycerin which is a polar molecule and not well suited for extraction.  The mixture is then left to sit with a heat source such as a crockpot. Perhaps this method would be ok for topical lotions, definitely but not for making our potent THC e-Juice. Attempting to use a polar solvent to extract a non-polar molecule will produce poor results.
