Now that cannabis has confirmed medical value, an increasing number of people are flocking to this natural solution for their wellness needs. With more and more forms of medical cannabis hitting the shelves of our marijuana dispensary in Massachusetts, new patients don’t always know exactly where to start. Here are some quick tips to keep in mind to make sure you’re getting the most out of your experience.
Wikipedia says “microdosing is precise dispensing of small amounts of a drug or substance”. Microdosing has become popular in cannabis, and lower-potency edibles and vape pens have become available. The benefits of microdosing THC are being studied more and more as voters pass laws to decriminalize cannabis throughout the USA.
If you don’t know exactly where to begin, start with small amounts of cannabis. Most people are surprised to learn they don’t need to get high in order to receive the benefits that marijuana has to offer. In some cases, extremely small doses may be more effective than larger doses. According to preclinical science, taking a low 1mg dose, or microdosing THC daily, may result in a significant decrease in disease progression. This dose is lower than the dose that would produce a high feeling in users- which may be preferable for medical marijuana patients.
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the main component in marijuana that makes you feel high. As a rule of thumb, start low and go slow. If you are inhaling marijuana, it’s recommended that you take one inhalation and wait at least 15 minutes before the next one. This will ensure that you don’t inhale too much at one time, and it’s a good way to find the right tolerance level for you. Talk with your doctor or a cannabis pharmacist to learn how to microdose.
