Cannabis expert Susan Squibb brings in chef Jessica Catalano of The Ganja Kitchen Revolution to help do the math on the THC potency in a batch of pot brownies.
I cook up 15 grams of trim in coconut oil, and my flower tests between 12 percent to 15 percent THC. If I make brownies in a 13 x 9-inch pan and cut them into 10 servings instead of 18 (like the brownie mix says), do I have 15 milligrams THC in each slice or 150 milligrams? Please help, thanks in advance!

Hey, Kitchen Chemist!
What’s cooking? I’m glad you’re double-checking the THC per serving in your pot brownies. There’s a big difference between 15 milligrams THC and 150 milligrams THC per serving … and by my math your numbers are off target. I compute your THC per serving to be 180 milligrams or 225 milligrams per serving, depending on the THC potency of your flower. Either way, that’s a super-potent end result.
It’s important to get the marijuana math part straight in any mouthwatering homemade brownie recipe, so let’s walk through the numbers together.
