In recent years microdosing has become a hot trend when it comes to legal and illegal cannabis. It has become very popular with people looking for relief from a variety of ailments such as anxiety, depression, and pain. Some users report that the act of microdosing has helped them to deal with many of these issues without the feeling of being overwhelmed. It can also be a great tool to use weed recreationally without getting too high!
What Exactly is Microdosing?
Microdosing is the practice of taking very small amounts of THC at a time. Between one and 20 milligrams at a time is common practice and allows the user to dial in a precision dose that works best for them. This technique can be great for newer users or for people who have a very low tolerance, allowing them to figure out which amount works best for their ailments and overall needs.
What Kinds of Products Can Be Microdosed?
There are many great products out there with some amazing potential for microdosing. Some of these products are capsules, tinctures, oils, gummies, mints, and even gum. They often have a low amount of THC per dose which can easily be used throughout the day to maintain the type of feeling or relief you are going for. Some of these products even contain THC as well as CBD. This has been shown to take the edge off THC and negate the negative effects such as paranoia and anxiety. For instance, a gummy containing 5mg of THC taken a few times during the day can be an excellent way to get the dose you are looking for in a delicious, easy-to-transport package.
Reasons Why People Microdose
There are many reasons why people would consider the technique of microdosing. The most obvious of which is they do not want a very strong high. With microdosing it is easy to find the best dose for each person and what works for them. Some people want to remain competent and able to go about their daily business without being glued to the couch watching YouTube videos all day. Others may be looking for a relaxing low dose high that just takes the edge off after a long stressful day of work. Microdosing allows users to dial in a precision dose that works for them, whether treating a certain disease or ailment or just looking to have some recreational fun.
Microdosing for Fun!
When visiting a state with recreational weed, microdosing can be an awesome way to explore without being bogged down or accidentally taking too large a dose. Taking a low dose edible in the morning with breakfast before hitting up the museums, trails or other touristy spots can be an excellent way to avoid the stresses of travel while slowing down and enjoying the sights. As the day wears on you can pop more edibles as you go which only helps to bring out the inner child. Recently my girlfriend and I did this while exploring California and it made for the most memorable trip with some of the best food experiences of our lives.
Microdosing for Health
Some people turn to marijuana to help them with a myriad of conditions ranging from serious ones such as cancer or epilepsy, to minor ones such as depression and anxiety. In states where weed is not legal, some have turned to CBD to help them out with these ailments. CBD has been reported to have many beneficial effects that help to combat the side effects of these conditions. CBD can also be microdosed to dial in the best dosage for these illnesses. Studies have also been shown that when CBD is used in conjunction with THC, the benefits are much stronger and more effective. So, when living in a state where cannabis is legal whether for recreational or medical purposes, it can be best to seek out a low dose product that has both.
Figure Out What Works Best For You
The biggest virtue of microdosing is the ability to dial in a precision dose that works best with your body. Everyone’s body is different and handles the effects of cannabis, whether it be THC or CBD, differently. This is the main reason that microdosing is becoming the hottest trend in 2020. It allows the user to figure out what works best for them so they can continue to get the benefits that they seek from this miracle plant. Always remember, when in doubt, take small amounts because you can always take more but you can never take less.
