CALCULATING CBD USE
To make edibles and tea you need to calculate how much CBD you are using:
1. First calculate how much THC/CBD is present per gram of flower:
·Start by using the percentage of THC/CBD in your flower in decimal form. 10% would be 0.10, 17% would be 0.17, 23% would be 0.23….you get the idea. Beware of people claiming high amounts of CBD content without any proof. All of Garden County CBD products are independently tested to guarantee CBD content.
Multiply this by 1,000.
This will give you THC/CBD per gram in milligrams (mg).
Example: your flower has 17% THC/CBC. As a decimal this would be 0.17 multiplied by 1,000 gives you 170 mg
2. Next, calculate the dose per serving:
Grams of flower used in the recipe multiplied by THC/CBD per gram (calculated above) equals dose for the entire recipe.
Example: if 1 gram of flower containing 17% THC/CBD was used then the entire recipe would contain 170 mg (1 X 170 mg = 170 mg)
If 3 grams of flower containing 17% THC/CBD was used then the entire recipe contains 510 mg (3 X 170 mg = 510 mg).
3. Finally calculate how much each piece or serving contains:
Total milligrams per recipes divided by number of servings or pieces.
Example: A cake recipe that makes 12 pieces in which 1 gram of flower containing 17% was used would have about 14 mg per piece (1 X 170 = 170 mg in whole recipes divided by 12 pieces = 14.1 mg)
A cookie recipe that makes 24 cookies in which 3 grams of flower containing 17% was used would have about 21.25 mg per cookie. (3 X 170 = 510 divided by 24 = 21.25 mg).
If the cookie recipe made 42 cookie in which 3 grams of flower containing 17% was used they each would have about 12 mg per cookie (3 X 170 = 510 divided by 42 = 12.1 mg).
Now you know how to calculate the dose of your edible if you choose to use whole flower in the recipe! ENJOY!
