FIRST THINGS FIRST:

Make sure you know the THC percentage is in the strain you plan to cook with.

Many recipes call for strains that are about 10 percent THC.

Strains with 15-20 percent THC are above average, and those with 21 percent THC or higher are exceptionally strong. Also, take into consideration if you are using flowers or biomass? There can be a large difference in the THC percentage.

For every gram of cannabis, the flower has 1000 mg of dry weight. If a strain has 10 percent THC, then 10 percent of 1000 mg would be 100 mg. It’s safe to assume that one gram of cannabis contains at least 100mg THC for cooking at home.
