Someone on Reddit just asked me a question, one that I’ve heard many times before in different ways, and my answer has always been “I don’t really know”. But the more I thought about it, the confuseder I got.
The question was, “What’s the maximum amount of THC you can dissolve in vegetable oil (like butter or coconut oil)?”
I know you can put a lot in there, because I once made Black Mamba capsules for my son out of something like 6 grams of flower into 2 tablespoons coconut oil. One of those capsules had him drooling and barking on the floor, if I remember correctly. But then I thought about concentrates.
Let’s do a thought experiment, in the tradition of Einstein and all those theoretical physics types.
Imagine a gram of hash oil. Say around 70% THC. Yes, yes, nice stuff there. Now decarboxylate it, and it’s essentially liquid. Probably around a teaspoon (5 ml).
Now imagine you’re going to mix it completely with an insanely small amount of warm coconut oil, say 2 ml.
What will you end up with? It’s surely 7 ml of something, and it has 700 mg. of THC in it, so it’s insanely strong at 100 mg/ml.
But it can’t be just coconut oil, because you only started with 2 ml of that.
So what is it? And how much THC did the coconut oil actually dissolve? And what is the upper limit, if any?
