Teinture (alcoole) de Cubebe, Fr. Cod.; Kubebentinktur, G.

"Cubebs, in No. 20 powder, 200 grammes; Alcohol (90 per cent.), sufficient to produce 1000 millilitres. Moisten the powder with one hundred millilitres of the Alcohol, and complete the percolation process." Br.

The U. S. P. has not recognized this tincture for many years, but it is official in the N. F.. While this tincture represents the therapeutic virtue of cubeb, it is an inelegant form of administering that drug.

Dose, one to two fluidrachms (3.75-7.5 mils).

The Dispensatory of the United States of America, 1918, was edited by Joseph P. Remington, Horatio C. Wood and others.
