Notes On Making Cannabis-Infused Granola

Whenever you take cannabis in an edible form, dosing is super important, and eating weed granola is no different. Unfortunately, dosing is a bit tricky, partly because the effects of cannabis vary greatly from one person to another, and because cannabis is still illegal in most parts of the world, meaning it is hard for people to know just how strong their weed is—which makes cooking with it pretty much guesswork.

For this recipe, we recommend using two standard doses of cannabis oil, depending on your tolerance. But how much cannabis oil constitutes a normal dose, and how can you ensure your granola is potent enough to deliver the effects you're after without becoming overpowering?

Well, in most legal cannabis markets, a standard edible dose is considered to contain around 10mg of THC. If you buy edibles from a dispensary in the US, for example, you'll be able to source single 10mg servings or packs of edibles containing multiple servings (usually up to 100mg). When making edibles at home, we recommend sticking to this suggested dose wherever possible.

If you're lucky enough to live in an area where you can legally buy cannabis that's tested for its cannabinoid levels, simply multiply the THC percentage of your weed by 10 to know how many milligrams of THC are in 1 gram of your bud. For example, if you buy weed with 20% THC, every gram of dry bud contains 200mg of THC, which is equivalent to twenty 10mg doses. From there, you'll know how many milligrams of THC go into the canna-oil or cannabutter you make at home. Seeing that our recipe makes two servings of granola, we recommend infusing it with enough cannabis oil to constitute 20mg of THC.

If, for example, you've infused 100ml of oil with 1g of cannabis containing 20% THC, you'll need 10ml of oil to infuse the recipe above.
