CBD THC Oil Potency Calculator – For Homemade Oil or Recipes
How much THC, CBD, or other cannabinoids are in your homemade oil? I made this useful calculator to help you figure that out.
As someone who wants to make their own CBD or THC oil at home, this is a critical question. You need to know how many milligrams of CBD are in each milliliter of oil.

Steps for using the CBD THC Potency Calculator:
The calculator is very simple. Follow the steps below to determine how potent your cannabinoid oil infusion will be.
CBDa and THCa decarboyxlate to CBD and THC, respectively, at a maximum rate of 87.8%.
So when you’re trying to determine the total amount of CBD or THC, you should multiply CBDa by 0.878, then add that number to the amount of CBD to arrive at the total amount of CBD (or THC, whichever you’re calculating for).
Once you determine the total amount, type it into the appropriate field of the calculator and continue to step 2.
Type the total amount of CBD flower, or amount of isolate, in grams, that you plan to use. If you’re using isolate you may be using less than one gram. To type a milligram amount, simply use a decimal number. 1 milligram should be typed as 0.001. 500 milligrams should be typed as 0.5
Type how many cups of oil you’re considering infusing the CBD into.
On the bottom of the calculator you will see the total milligram amount of CBD that will be present in your entire oil infusion, if you choose to use the amounts typed in Steps 1-3.
If you want a weaker or stronger oil infusion, you have a few options:
- Use CBD flower with lower or higher CBD content, depending whether you want lower or higher cannabinoid concentration in your oil infusion.
- Use more or less CBD flower, or use more or less isolate, depending whether you want lower or higher cannabinoid concentration in your oil infusion.
- Use more or less oil. Using more oil without adding additional flower or isolate will weaken the potency. Using less oil without changing the amount of flower or isolate will make your oil infusion more potent.
Complete all steps listed in first part of calculator, described above.
Look at the potency per teaspoon and type in how many teaspoons of oil you’ll use for your entire recipe. Then type in how many servings are in your entire recipe, and you’ll see how potent each serving will be.
