Testing THC/CBD content?

Does anyone test their THC/CBD content at home? While personally curious, I also have a friend who does some baking that has been asked about edibles. To do so, she would like/need/want some way to speak to the potency of her items.

Recreationally, it’s legal to grow it, consume/smoke it. But not to sell it. Edibles are a fuzzy grey area.


At home test from Amazon-



If you can’t get it tested, the next best thing is to estimate the thc content of the bud used. If you bought it at a shop, that amount is listed. If it’s homegrown, take the breeder’s average THC estimates and divide 1000 by that number. That gets you THC mg/gram dried bud.

For instance, if the average THC is listed as 15-20%, then each gram of bud used in edibles has approximately 150-200 grams of thc. Then just do more math to figure out the THC content per serving of finished product.

Thanks! As far as what I’m dosing with now… it’s my own GC I grew. I might get that kit and test my stuff so I can estimate going forward.
