The amount of THC in the cannabutter you use will directly affect the potency of your cider drinks. Always use caution when mixing THC-infused drinks with alcohol, they can pack quite a punch.

How to calculate THC in this edibles recipe

If you have 1000 mg THC per stick of cannabutter and this recipe uses 3/8 a stick for 6 servings, then each cup of cider would have 62.5 mg of THC and 2 oz. of brandy per serving. To reduce the THC per drink to 30 mg per servings using this same cannabutter, use 1.5 tablespoons of cannabutter and 1.5 tablespoons of regular butter.

If each stick of cannabutter has 720 mg of THC total (as would be common if you made your cannabutter with 1 stick of butter and 1 gram of shatter/dabs/BHO) then 3/8 a stick would provide 270 mg of THC total, or 45 mg for each of the 6 servings.
