On my last harvest, there was 7 grams of White Widow Kief left in the bottom of the Trim Bin.

I want to use this in my alcohol-based tincture, but I am unsure how to throw it in the calculator to establish a dose.

White Widow (in theory) averages 15 - 22% for the strain (I go with 17% in my calculations). So, how should I make an apples to apples comparison?

@exnavyinstl the strength of kief can vary a lot but id approximate it to between 20 - 30% thc at a guess from my experiences smoking it..

do u smoke / vape? if so u can try a bit to gage strength in comparison to the flowers

if u dont smoke / vape then i would suggest the above approximation as a guideline

hope this helps 

ps i had some white tested i grew last year tested at 17% - it was grown well i felt and the result is realistic ...  most weed tests between 15 and 20% these days despite higher claims misleading many. 

Time to pop some more beans 😗
