There’s a wide spectrum of ways you can intake cannabis.
Sure, you can rip a dab of 100% THC concentrate and be baked as an apple cobbler, but on the opposite side of the spectrum lies a newly trending option called MICRODOSING. Let’s explore!
Microdosing is a “technique,” of taking doses of a substance so low that they are unlikely to produce whole-body effects, but high enough to allow cellular response to be observed.
Now I know you, you don’t like to do anything small… BUT what if I told you that small amounts of THC can actually hold MORE medicinal benefits than higher amounts?!
The industry is obsessed with high THC everything-- because consumers want more bang for their buck, but stronger isn’t always better.
Sometimes when you raise the dose of something you can actually get diminished benefits-- for example, some people experience reduced anxiety with a little bit of THC, but too much THC can cause anxiety! Same goes with PAIN.
Now every body is different-- and your reaction to cannabis is individual and affected by differences in liver metabolism, genetics of cannabinoid receptors, and your previous usage, but generally a micro-dose of cannabis is around 2.5 milligrams.
The purpose of microdosing cannabis is to expand our relationship from beyond merely recreational use, or for treating severe symptoms, and to instead take microdoses of cannabis as something we use to stay healthy, like a daily multivitamin (but like, a way more fun one).
