Math Time: How to Calculate the THC/CBD amounts in your edibles.

Have you ever wanted to know how much THC/CBD are in your edibles?  Follow these steps to find out!

 

1. Start with the THC/CBD Percentage of your cannabis strain

 

_______ %

 

2.  Divide the percentage by 100 to get the total THC per gram

 

_______ % ÷ 100 = ________ THC/g

 

3.  Multiply the THC/g by 1000 to get the number of milligrams of THC per gram.

 

________ THC/g  x 1000 = ________mg THC / g

 

4.  Now, you can multiply that number by the weight of your batch.

 

________mg THC / g  x ________ grams of cannabis

= _________ total mg THC

 

5.  Take that batch number, and divide it into the amount of butter (in mL)

 

________ mg THC ÷ _________ mL of butter

= _________ mg THC / mL butter

 

6.  To calculate how much THC is in your edibles, take the amount of butter…

 

________ mL of butter in recipe  x _________ mg THC / mL of butter

= ________ mg of THC in recipe

 

7.  … and divide it by the number of servings you're making.

 

________ mg of THC in recipe ÷ _______ # of servings in recipe

= ________ mg of THC per serving

 

 

As an example, let's take 3.5g of a 15% THC strain to make cookies.

1. 15% THC
2. 15% THC ÷ 100 = 0.15 g THC / g
3. 0.15 THC / g * 1000 = 150mg THC
4. 150mg THC x 3.5 g in the batch = 525 mg THC total
5. 525 mg THC ÷ 250 mL (1 cup) butter = 2.1 mg / mL
6. 250 mL of butter in recipe * 2.1 mg / mL = 525 mg THC in recipe
7. 525 mg THC in recipe ÷ 25 cookies = 21 mg THC per cookie
