*Note: The amount of cannabis tincture specified in this recipe is a very loose suggestion; the actual amount you use should be modified based on the strength of your tincture and the potency you desire. Dosing homemade edibles can be tricky , so the best way to test for potency is to start with one portion of a serving, wait one to two hours, then make an informed decision on whether to consume more. Always dose carefully and listen to your body, and never drive under the influence of cannabis.
How to determine the THC content and potency of marijuana pancakes
The best way to determine the THC content of your weed pancakes is to pay attention when you make your cannabutter.
If you know the strength of your cannabutter is 700 mg THC per stick (which would be common if you made 1 stick of marijuana butter using 1 gram of shatter), then each tablespoons of your cannabutter would have 87.5 mg THC. Using two tablespoons of this strength cannabutter in the weed pancake recipe above would mean that the total THC content of the recipe would be 175 mg. Dividing the resulting pancakes equally among four users would mean there would be about 44 mg THC per serving. Divided among 3 users, it would be 58 mg per serving.
How to store marijuana pancakes
Since you are cooking these weed pancake from scratch you’ll want to save any extras by storing them in the fridge for up to a few days or in the freezer for longer-term storage. Vacuum-sealed bags work best but freezer bags will suffice. Clearly label them as being for adults only and indicate the THC content for future reference. Be very cautious if you have kids, especially if your kids are used to eating frozen pancakes.
