Cannabis Edibles Cost Per 10mg THC Dose Comparison

Edibles

To understand my cost per dose of cannabis, I looked at prices for a small group of the edibles reviewed here on More Than Buds.

If you want to know what you are paying per 10mg dose, we’ve got the formula and some examples for you.

Prices are different all over, so keep your receipts and try the same comparison if you’re interested in a like-to-like comparison of what you are paying.

I used 10mg of THC or CBD as the standard unit of comparison in this example.

In the example chart below, the cost per 10mg dose varies widely from $1.00 to $10.00. This is a big difference if you are looking for a product to use often, as a thirty day supply of the $10 product costs $300. A thirty day supply of the product that costs $1.00 a day costs $30.

Note: Prices in this example are from 2018-2020 before tax and may not reflect current pricing.

A Cautionary Tale: Asking the Right Questions At The Dispensary

By Ruth

Previously, I have asked for strain specific (Indica/Sativa) marijuana edible products at dispensaries. I SHOULD have also asked how many milligrams (mg) of THC each product contains per dose. I’m used to 5 or 10mg portions of cannabis edibles, then I can take multiples to meet the dose that works best for me of 40mg of THC, a moderate to high amount.

Edibles Heavy Hitters vs. MicrodosesRecently, I dropped the ball and didn’t ask about mg per dose or inspect the container’s label. I was in a Rush with no reading glasses on me. I ended up buying Incredibles Stimulating Ice Mints in microdoses of 2.5mg.

Microdosing works fabulously for folks that a very sensitive to THC. But not everyone. For someone that need a much bigger dose like me, I would have to eat 16 of these Altoid-like Mints to feel any effects.

Later, in an effort to “make it work”, I tried a mint to elevate an existing, waning high. Then I waited. Nothing. So I ate another Incredibles Stimulating Ice Mint. Nothing. They are merely the most expensive breathe mints in Colorado. I would pass on these.

Lesson learned.

1) Bring your reading glasses to the dispensary.

2) Ask your budtender about the strain and dosage of your edible.

3) Read the small print on the packaging before you get home.

(Trust me, you don’t want a container of $20.00 Altoids.)
