1.Determine your desired serving size of THC.

- 1 Tablespoon (Tbsp) is equal to approximately 36 mg THC.

2.Understand how to substitute cannabis coconut oil with standard butter / oil.
Verdes Cannabis Coconut Oil (VCCO) can be substituted into any recipe in equal parts to the butter or oil component. Remember: ONE tablespoon equals approximately 36 mg THC. Be cautious about how much VCCO you’re substituting. Once you’ve determined your serving size you can figure out the amount of VCCO needed to supplement into any recipe.
If a recipe calls for 3 Tbsp. of butter and you want about 36 mg of THC in your dish, you would use 2 Tbsp. of butter and 1 Tbsp. of Verdes Cannabis Coconut Oil. If you wanted roughly 70 mg of THC in your dish you would use 1 Tbsp. of butter and 2 Tbsp. of Verdes Cannabis Coconut Oil.
3. Prepare for longer baking / cooking times.
It’s important to note that the THC will begin to lose potency if heated over 320 degrees Fahrenheit (160 degrees Celsius). If you are cooking at high temperatures, we suggest adjusting your cooking times to suit a lower temperature to preserve the potency your medicine.
