Getting the right answers in your cannabis journey can be tricky. But with The Cannigma’s Ask the Expert, you can find questions from readers like you, answered by a real cannabis pharmacist.
I have THC syrup – 1oz, 100 mgs THC – (I thought I’d try it), and it’s far too thick for how I want to use it.
What’s the best way to dilute the syrup?
Regarding the dilution, don’t overthink this one. A syrup, by definition, is a water and sugar combination. In this case, you can just dilute the known amount of syrup with an equal part of water to cut the concentration in half.
For example: you currently have 100mg/ 1 oz which is the same as 100mg/30mL
Therefore your current syrup is 3.33mg/ml.
If you wanted to dilute the syrup, you could add 30mL of water (or any other liquid) to make 100mg in 60ml of fluid =1.67mg/ml
If you wanted a cleaner number— you could add 20ml of fluid to your existing syrup to make a total of 100mg in 50mL = 2mg/mL
Remember that dilution will change the taste of the solution as well.
