Wash a 500 mL mason jar and sterilize by putting in the oven at 225° F for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool. Remember not to touch the jar, it is very hot and will burn your skin. Sterilize lid by soaking in hot but not boiling water while you prepare the cherries.
Rinse cherries under cold water. Remove all stems and pits from the cherries.
Add about 1/3 of the cherries to the jar. Pour one Tablespoon of sugar over the cherries. Add the next 1/3 of cherries to the jar and pour one more tablespoon of sugar over. Add the last 1/3 of the cherries to the jar, leaving one inch headspace. Pour one Tablespoon of sugar over the cherries.
Pour 3 to 4 ounces of cannabis tincture over the cherries. If your tincture contains several doses of THC, then you can use a portion containing tincture and the remaining portion is straight alcohol. Seal jar tightly and shake gently to distribute the sugar and tincture throughout the cherries.
Store the container in the cupboard or pantry out of direct light for about 3 to 4 weeks to fully infuse. Gently shake the cherries once a week to distribute the sugar and liquid.
Refrigerate after opening. Store in fridge for several months, making sure that no children have access to the fridge.
Consume in moderation because cannabis can intensify the effects of alcohol.
Always label container to indicate that the contents contain THC.
You can use cherries with the pits inside, but you must poke a couple of pin holes in each cherry.
