Homemade edibles should still have an even dosage. You can figure that dosage out by calculating the strength of the flower you have chosen to infuse into an edible.

Let’s use 10% THC as an example.

To get the per-milligram amount, divide 1,000 by 10 (one gram of cannabis is 1,000mg). One gram of 10% THC cannabis is equal to 100 mg of THC per gram.

If you’re making 12 cookies, adding 3.5 grams (one eighth) of cannabis will give you 12 cookies of about 29.1 mg each, or 24 cookies with 14.5 mg each.  

If your cannabis is 24 percent, you’ll have 240 mg of cannabis in one gram. This would yield 12 cookies of 60 mg per cookie, or 24 cookies of 30mg each.

For most everyone, 30 mg per cookie would be considered a high dosage, therefore it is important to remember the tolerance among consumers will vary. 


If you have never experimented with edibles, start with less than 5mg. It is important to make sure your body can digest cannabis comfortably. 


For the occasional consumer, 5-10 can be plenty for a single serving.
