Thanks  @Hugh Jass 

I've been doing a bit more reading  and it seems any alcohol can be used ...

NOW! lol  I'm not a drinker " may be a bit of wine at Christmas"  I'm mentioning this because I have bottles of Whisky 40% vol /

Captaion Morgan Original Special Gold 35% vol and Lamb's Navy Rum 40% vol which have been in my cupboard for years lol 

Am I right in thinking that you have to double the volume to get the proof  ( 40 vol x2 = 80%proof or is it more?)

 

It seem a shame not to use it or may be I should just start to have a tipple in the evening :)

50% alcohol is 100 proof yes you are right.

 

Useing captian Morgans rum will work, but the taste will not be the same.

@Hugh Jass  As I have no idea what it tastes like I will force myself to have a little sip before adding to cannabis  :wacko:

I cannot see it making the tincture taste nasty but I will have to check that only a small amount is given at first then gradually work out the correct dosage from there.

Thanks a lot for youe help

Is this ok to use as tincture ? Ive been using Everclear, expensive but for human consumption. I would use iso if I knew it was safe for tincture.

No it’s absolutely not safe to drink or consume in any manner it has been denatured so pissheads can’t drink it. It’s for use as an industrial solvent PLEASE Don’t use isopropyl alcohol in a tincture
