# Is this formula correct for measuring mcg like dispensaries advertise?

Discussion in 'Weed Edibles' started by bigslick7878, Feb 3, 2014.

1. I have seen dispensaries advertise "100mcg" brownies and I was wondering how they came up with that number.

Is it as simple as 1 gram per brownie @ (ex) 15% THC = .15 micrograms?

I am guessing that is after the standard 25% loss that comes with making the butter from actual weight?

I am trying to dial in how much I am putting in to mine, and how they are getting to their numbers.

Like you I'm under the impression this is how they measure THC - the percentage is out of the buds weight. I could be wrong though. If we suppose .05g of bud in an edible gives a noticeable high, that would still be 5,000mcg THC and that's of shitty, non dispensary say 10% thc buds. So I'm not sure that an edible with only 100mcg would have any effect bc it's 2% as strong as the barely noticeable schwag threshold from above. It probably means milligrams (mg) but honestly unless you're absolutely sure they lab test their buds or edibles themselves (idk if its possible) they're probably just tacking it on there for sales hahaSent from my iPhone using Grasscity Forum

Don't need to be from a medical state my friend that is what the internet is for! I am actually confused, because if the formula is what we think there is no way this can be right. Example, they would have to put in a huge amount of grams per serving if we take the 10% THC content to get these numbers. The 100mg would need to be 10grams per serving of butter(at 10%), and there is no way that is possible IMO. If you ate 10 grams of potent butter at one time you would be so messed up it isn't even funny.

I make mine extremely strong with nowhere near the medical grade they use, and 2 grams is plenty. 3 you are nice for 5 hours straight.  So their 100mg is probably just 1 gram of butter per serving(not using the say 15% calculation obv), which makes a lot more sense. And yeah that is pretty weak from what I am used to.
