    the percentages of thc of marijuana bud are based on the percent of thc in 1 gram of bud.

    so 1 gram of bud is 1000mg
    if you have 20% thc of 1000mg
    thats 200mg per gram of bud

    if you roll a .5g joint
    thats 100mg thc joint.

    but wait! its THCA in your bud. not THC!
    so you have to convert THCA to THC...

    http://www.thecannabist.co/2017/01/31/thc-test-potency-marijuana-joint/41267/

    If you smoke half of the Kush joint, the most THC you can get is 33 milligrams to 39 milligrams with a sidestream loss between 26 milligrams and 33 milligrams THC. If it’s 4:20 and you want to smoke the whole joint, you’ll be consuming approximately 65 milligrams to 78 milligrams THC.

    hey i was kinda close ... but not really. that link has more info.

    And we need a doctor to recommend specifically for just a handful of conditions? 

    I remember back when the conditions panel was first being selected and instructed. It leaked out that the director wanted to make sure that none of these 'all inclusive' type uses would ever be accepted because it would let the cat out of the bag and everyone would automatically qualify. They couldn't have that now could they? It would take all the fun out for those ex cops running the program.
