To find the potency of your weed pesto, you’re going to need to know the potency of your cannabis-infused cooking oil! If you don’t know this, head over to our cannabis-cooking oil guide. Here we have a calculator at the bottom of the post that will help you determine the total mg of THC per cup.

Although this recipe calls for 1/2 cup of cannabis-infused oil, please only type the total mg of THC in 1 cup of your oil. This calculator has been programmed specifically for this recipe and it will make the correct calculation automatically.

Keep in mind, this is just a rough estimate and the potency will differ from person to person.
