Did 4

Oh, stoned I am, I just realized that my water alarm went off for me to check the pH of the rez before the first cycle of the night. Well it was not bad, a little high. Did the pH adjustment so it will be watering again in about two hours.

@gr865 OMG 20g ? Did you infuse it into oil first or right into the gummy recipe? Have you tried to calculate the potency? When I infused 2.6g into a 1/4c and then used 1/8c of that oil to make 75 gummys I used some calculator to come up with this. The 70% is just a guesstimate based on information from around the net.

I decarbed the Rosin @ 235 degrees, took about 40 minutes. I used Corn Syrup, Sunflower Liquid Lecithin and the Decarbed Rosin, heated and mixed together well then added to the cooking gelatin and stir well.

The THC content is a guess, used Rosin from 7 different strain of cannabis, all varying amount and THC levels. So that number is the average of the cannabis used.

20gm rosin @ 22% THC = 4.4gr THC
4.4gr THC/250 gummies = 17.6 mg THC/Gummy

Why only 22%? Tests have shown 70% on the low end and over 80% on the high end.

You mean for Rosin or FECO/CCO?
How can the Rosin be any stronger than the original cannabis?
I have heard that FECO/CCO can get above 50%.

The vast majority if what you get from the rosin press is the contents of the trichomes.

So your saying that at the low end it is 40 mg of THC per gummy. That is based on 50% THC.

OK, you had 20gm rosin, with somewhere between 70 and 80% THC.
That means you had 14gm (20 * 0.7) to 16gm (20 * 0.8) gm THC total in the rosin.
You made 250 gummies from it so each gummy had 56mg (14gm/250) to 64mg(16gm/250) THC per gummy

:oops: I inverted the division for my first attempt.

Right. You also need to take into account the efficiency of the decarb and infusion. Most places use this math

(x * y * 1000) * z = a
x = amount of product in grams
y = THC % (dried cannabis 15-20%, extracts 70-85%)
z = efficiency, usually 0.8
a = available THC in mg
