I guess I’m just confused! After watching a lot of YT vids it’s blowing my mind. I made 3 cups of tincture with 16% flower and the yield was about 2 3/4 cups. Please help me figure the milligrams per cup. This how I figured it out, look over it and let me know if I’m right and if I made a mistake PLEASE show me how to do it. I took 1000x 20g= 20,000 then x by .16= 3200mg multiplied that by .85 for loss= 2720mg. Here’s where I get confused, is that for the whole 2 3/4c or is that per cup? Which in turn I would then multiply the 2720 by 2.75 to get total batch? Any info is GREATLY appreciated!
My very basic understanding is that 1oz of real sugary sugar leaves can be QWET concentrated into approximately 1-1.5g of concentrate. That same 1oz of trim is very likely going to equate about 120ml of fluid in a tincture concoction, so the best way I can convert this is as such:
1g of QWET concentrate = approx 750mg THC.
1.5g would be about 1,125mg of THC.
pretending you got the same yield (high end) from your ounce of bud that I got from my ounce of sugar leaf and larf, we could estimate each ml of fluid is 9.375mg of THC (assuming a rate of 1125mg per 120ml)
That’s making a lot of pretty big assumptions about potency and yield, but that’s how I’d get there.
blackthumbbetty usually just lurks, but doesn’t post anymore. @Graysin
Yeah, I have noticed that. But when people are the subject matter experts I gotta give it a shot anyway
Does something like this help:
How much flower did you use? What’s your extraction/infusion method?
How did you figure loss? Just kidding. 0.85 is inconsequential in the grand scheme of things.
Yeah, I would say one of the on line calculators would work… I evaporate my tincture (QWET) all the way to dabbable wax (Concentrate)… that way it is easy to dose. I would recommend doing that if you really want an accurate dose.
You make the QWET but evaporate all the way down. If you want a tincture, you could then add the exact amount back to the alcohol (or oil, whatever you are using).
1 gram of concentrate = approximately (pretty close) 750 mg THC no matter what the THC% is of your starting flower.
Thanks for asking, I used 3 cups everclear with 20g in the ongrok on the 130* setting for 8hrs
Lol I know what I’d do, I’d just try a few drops and wait but I’m a dumb ass
.16 (nominal THC percentage) times 20 (the amount of flower) equals 3.2 grams or 3200 mg. 2 3/4 cups is 22 oz. 3200 mg divided by 22 equals 145 mg per oz.
Thank you Myfriends410
An ounce of buds yields about 6-8 grams of concentrate. Each gram of clean, purged concentrate contains about 750-800mg cannabinoids.
From there, just do your math to make your doses. I usually divide 1 gram into 10 80mg servings.
