How To Choose the Appropriate Dosage
Dosing can always be tricky with edibles, especially when you make your own cannabis cake. The easiest way to dose with cake is to simply remember what was the total amount of bowls you used in your cannabutter or oil. One gram of pot with 10% THC, which is one large bowl, contains about 100 mgs of THC. A normal dose of THC in edibles is about 10 mgs. Increase by 10 mg at each level of increased tolerance. So, take the amount of butter you plan to use in your cake, say two sticks of butter, and count the amount of bowls you want in your cake to put in your canna butter or oil. You have used 10 bowls, so cut your cake into 10 pieces, and each piece will contain a dose of about 10 mgs of THC. Just adapt this formula for the type of marijuana you use. You can also instead make 10 cupcakes or muffins, using a bowl for each. A space cupcake can be a discreet, portable way of taking medical marijuana on the run.
