How to Calculate Edible Potency

If you want to cook edibles, then you need to learn to calculate the THC dosage. In fact, this is one topic that no home cook can afford to skip. If the THC dosage in the edibles is too high or low, you will not experience any of the benefits that are associated with cannabis edibles. For calculating the dosage, you must consider a couple of factors like the strength of the cannabis and your tolerance toward it. The ideal dosage is usually around 10 to 15 milligrams. However, when it comes to edibles, it is always a good idea to be aware of the THC content per serving. There is a simple formula that you can use to determine the THC content, regardless of whether the plant matter you are using has been tested in a lab or not. That said, please keep in mind that this isn’t a foolproof formula and it will only help you figure out the THC or the CBD content per serving of the cannabis edibles you cook. So, read on to learn about this formula and the way in which you can use it.

A lot of people aren’t aware of the THC content in the plant material that they use. The usual average of THC in cannabis is around 10 percent. The simple formula that you must keep in mind is: One gram of cannabis = 1000 milligrams and THC content is 10 percent of 1,000 milligrams. So, one gram of cannabis contains about 100 milligrams of THC. Now, by using this number, you must calculate the quantity of THC that’s present in the cannabutter or cannabis-infused oil you plan to use. For instance, let us assume that the recipe calls for an ounce (around 28 grams) of cannabis for making a cup of cannabutter. An ounce of cannabis contains about 2800 milligrams of THC. The THC content or potency of the recipe will depend on the amount of cannabutter or oil the recipe calls for; with air fryer rotisserie recipes generally requiring only a few drops of cannabis oil. If you are baking one batch of cookies (36 cookies), then you need to use about half a cup of cannabutter and this means that the total THC content of the batch of cookies is 1400 milligrams. Now that you know the total THC content, you can easily calculate the THC per cookie by dividing the total THC by the number of cookies baked. So, in this scenario, the THC content per cookie is 1400 milligrams/36 cookies = 38.8 milligrams per cookie.

Estimate the THC content in the plant material you are using and then divide it by 100 to obtain the THC content of the cannabis per milligram. Once you have this number, calculate the THC content in the infusion you are using and the amount of cannabis-infused oil or butter that the recipe calls for. Finally, divide this by the number of servings you can make with the recipe in order to obtain the appropriate dosage. If you feel that the dosage of THC as suggested by the recipe is too high, then you can reduce the amount of cannabis oil or butter you plan on using. Similarly, if the dosage isn’t sufficient, then you merely need to increase the amount of cannabis oil or butter you are using.

NOTE: If you are just getting started with cannabis, it is best if you start out with a small dosage. Everyone reacts differently to different dosages. Like with any new product, you will need to see how your body reacts to it. Depending on that reaction, you can determine whether you want to increase or decrease the dosage. The right dosage of cannabis will vary from one person to another. As a rule of thumb, a bigger person might need a higher dosage of cannabis than a smaller person. With cannabis, you have the freedom to increase the dosage by a few milligrams at a time for meeting your personal needs. If you have any preexisting medical conditions, then you must always consult a health-care professional before taking cannabis. A doctor or a medical professional can tell you take cannabis and the dosage you need to get the most out of it. So always consult your doctor first.

Basic Ingredients

Cannabis contains a chemical known as THC, which is chiefly responsible for inducing psychoactive effects on the mind. Smoking it, by wrapping the dried leaves in a joint, is sure to send you on a mental trip. It is quite popular among youngsters, and older people around the world, and considered to be one of the most potent and safe, psychoactive herb in the world.

Cannabis goes by many different names including pot, ganja, weed, hemp and bud but all stands for the same plant. 

Can any type of marijuana be used to vaporize?  

Yes, any type of marijuana can be used to vaporize . Choosing one type or another will depend on the effect, taste and aroma you want it to have when you consume it. Something that must be taken into account when vaporizing one or another variety of cannabis is the temperature of vaporization. And there are “ideal” temperatures to vaporize the different types and hybrids of cannabis to get the most out of it.

The sativa and sativa-dominant hybrids are ideally vaporized between 178ºC and 195ºC . During the day at temperatures closer to 178 ° C for inducing a more mental effect, in addition to being at lower temperatures it does not produce as much smell as it is more discreet to consume it. Since sativa is a variety with more CBD content, this temperature range is adjusted to remove all the content of this cannabinoid from the plant, so if we consume a sativa-dominant hybrid, having less CBD content than a sativa pure, add that the correct thing would be to vaporize it at a slightly higher temperature range: 190ºC during the day and 195ºC at night.

On the other hand, with indica and indica-dominant hybrids, the best temperature range is between 195ºC and 208ºC. The temperature to vaporize the CBD is higher than what you need to vaporize the THC, so we see an increase in temperatures in the indica varieties. To vaporize the pure indica varieties, the perfect range would be between 202-208ºC, containing less CBD than the indica-dominant hybrids that with a temperature range of 195-202ºC would take full advantage of them.

As with sativa, in these ranges the lowest temperature is recommended to consume cannabis by day and the highest in the range for consumption at night.
