What is microdosing?

Monday, May 10, 2021

Although cannabis edibles are often associated with large doses and potent effects, one method of consumption that’s been gaining popularity is microdosing. In the recreational cannabis market one dose is defined as 10mg of THC, so when microdosing consumers should consider eating a half gummy (or less) at a time. The main appeal of this is consumers can receive the benefits of ingesting cannabis while avoiding intoxication.

There are a wide variety of reasons to microdose; needing help with reducing stress while also wanting to retain a sense of focus, desiring relief from background aches and pains, or even simply disliking potent effects. It’s also essential to choose the correct strain for your needs when microdosing. To find the right strains for your needs, it’s still recommended that you look at a batch’s terpene profile and cannabinoid content, along with its suggested use.

Another key aspect to keep in mind when microdosing is that dosing is incredibly subjective. How an individual’s endocannabinoid system reacts to cannabis is dependent on a wide variety of health factors, so what works as a dose for one individual may not work for others. We recommend starting with one 10mg gummy at a time before experimenting. After multiple experiences you should be able to dial in on the dose size that’s right for you.
