# Oil infusion ratio

Discussion in 'Weed Edibles' started by Nematode128, Jun 15, 2019.

1. I know with butter they say the ratio for infusion is 1oz of weed to 1lb of butter but I was curious to what ratio to use for infusing olive oil or coconut oil is

2. It all depends on how much oil you want to consume. I'm trying to loose not gain weight so I keep the oil to a minimum. You really don't need more oil then enough to wet the material.

Decarb first everything you intend to eat or drink. 240 F for 40 minutes uncovered.

5 grams Kief, Hash, Concentrate, Powdered buds
2.5 teaspoons Coconut oil (any cooking oil works)
1/2 teaspoon Lecithin (strength enhancer)
Heat 220 F for 20 minutes
Freeze (optional helps smooth the mouth feel)
Heat 220 F for 20 minutes (Omit if you skipped the freeze)
Done

Fills 30 (0) capsules @ 80mg each with concentrate
25mg with good bud.

Made with dry ice Kief this stuff is very potent to the point a single drop of this is to much for my wife.

3. Who is they? This is simply a question of the desired potency of your final infusion. I personally employ a 1 ounce:1 cup ratio for my edibles, flower to fat. In your original post above, that would mean that I would be using 2 ounces of flower for 1 pound of butter, as each stick of butter is 1/2 cup and there's 4 sticks in a pound.

If you want to venture further down the rabbit hole of getting an idea of how much your ratio should be, we can talk about 'dosing'. And as a disclaimer, I use the term 'dosing' very lightly, because unless you're getting your flower lab tested, the actual chemical composition is unknown.

But I digress, here's some VERY ROUGH, yet simple, math you can employ when calculating your dosage.
For the sake of easy math, let's just say we have some below average flower with a THC concentration of 10%, and we'll use the numbers in your OP.

1 gram of flower = 1000 milligrams
10% of 1 gram = 100 milligrams of THC
1 ounce of flower = 2800 milligrams of THC
2800 milligrams into 1 lb. (2 cups) of butter = 1400 milligrams per cup

So say you were making a batch of brownies which called for half a cup of butter.

1400 milligrams per cup/2 = 700 milligrams per cup.

And if you cut that pan of brownies into 24.

700/24 = 29.1666666667, or roughly 30 milligrams a dose.

I repeat, this math is not meant to be definitive, but it can provide a very rough starting point where to begin with your infusions. You can then titrate the levels accordingly on subsequent runs to adjust to your tolerance/preferences.

Hope this helps,
