what does that tell me?
i understand milligrams and amount i need,but i don't understand the percentage thing.
how much is a puff? (1,000 mg)
i only bought it for emergencies.
i'm fine with the pills or tinctures that i buy.
For you to have 87% THC, I infer that you have a distillate.
That being the case, it takes about 1.15 mg of it to equal 1 mg of THC. 100/87=1.149
Legally here, 10mg equals one dose, but that is because there are some brothers and sisters ultra-sensitive to THC, but most folks take more.
When passing out free meds in our cancer research experiments at Skunk Pharm Research, we found that 100 mg was closer to a full dose and had some patients with tolerance higher than that.
We had to slowly build their tolerance high enough that they could take 330 mg three times a day to reach the required gram a day dosage.
Because of the wide range of tolerance, we started everyone at 25 mg and titrated up to find their tolerance. We did find some patients who 25 mg gave a buzz, usually those who had never used cannabis.
Probably the tincture working for you more than the brownies. I find it helps me when I have a lot on my mind before going to sleep. I don’t use it every night but now and then I do break it out I’m glad it’s working for you
A sublingual tincture works better than anything you swallow because both the cannabinoids, the terpenes, and the alcohol are all trans dermal, so enter directly into the bloodstream.
The reason the initial high doesn't last long, is because alcohol is usually the first and strongest initial response. Try taking the same amount of good liquor under your tongue and swirl it around without swallowing, to note how strong an effect the first alcohol to enter your bloodstream has.
The original "brownie" recipe was one oz of pot in one package of Mrs Duncans brownie mix, in a 9" square pan, cut into 9 squares. The pot had to be ground fine enough to not be gritty, and added a chlorophyl flavor.
Using a concentrate sidesteps both the grit and flavor, with a number of options. The cannabinoids are not water soluble, so your recipe needs something to suspend it in, which will mix with the rest of the ingredients, usually a fat or oil, but alcohols work as well. IE: Vegetable and nut oils, butter/ghee, bacon grease, vegetable glycerin, or ethanol.
If you use ethanol, it evaporated away and leaves the cannabinoids in minute particles throughout the mixture.
You can use milk instead of water and squirt the tincture into the milk, before adding it to the mix, or add ghee concentrate to the recipe.
