For a single batch of infused edibles, it is recommended that medical marijuana patients use roughly one ounce of cannabis buds. You can elect to use more or less depending on the quality of your starting material and how you plan to use it. You should expect a 10% weight loss when you decarb (e.g., 30 grams becomes 27 grams). The quality of your cannabis should also be taken into consideration as you will need significantly less material when using high quality buds than you would using trim or sugar leaf.
