How you can make THC meals: your information to DIY meals


To calculate the amount of THC in food, we assume that the cannabis flower used contains 10% THC to simplify the method. If you know the percentage of THC in your strain or use our THC percentage table, you can adjust the following formula accordingly:

1 gram cannabis = 1000 mg × 10% THC = 100 mg 1 gram cannabis = 100 mg THC

Now determine the total amount per gram that you used in your butter or oil base. Since 3.5 grams is the standard amount of cannabis flowers to oil, we'll use this as an example.

100 mg THC x 3.5 g cannabis = 350 mg THC in 1 cup butter or oil

To find out your mg amount per dose, simply divide the total amount of butter or oil used in the recipe. So if you used 1 cup of 350 mg butter or oil to make a batch of 15 cookies, each cookie contains approximately 23 mg of THC. If you only used half a cup of butter, first divide 350 by half a cup, which corresponds to 175 mg. Then 175 mg divided by the total number of pieces that the recipe makes.
