If you regularly consume cannabis, you’ve probably wondered if there is a way to experience the benefits of this plant without having to deal with its psychoactive effects. If so, cannabis microdosing is the answer you’re looking for.
What are microdoses?
They are small amounts of THC that are consumed with the aim of experiencing its benefits without feeling its psychoactive effects. In other words, it is a way to take advantage of the plant’s therapeutic properties without feeling “high”.
Why should I consume microdoses?
Why would anyone want to consume microdoses of cannabis instead of smoking or eating large quantities of the plant? The answer is simple: the effects of microdosing are milder and more controllable, making them ideal for people who don’t want to experience the psychoactive effects of THC.
In addition, cannabis microdoses can be useful for treating a wide variety of disorders, including anxiety, chronic pain, stress, inflammation, mood disorders and epilepsy.
How to make a microdose of cannabis?
To make cannabis microdoses, you must start by getting a strain of cannabis with a high THC content. Then, you need to calculate the amount of THC you want to consume and divide it into small doses.
One way to do this is to use cannabis edibles that contain a known amount of THC. For example, you can eat a cannabis candy containing 2mg of THC and wait to see how you feel after ingesting it.
If you prefer not to consume edibles, you can use vaporizers or pipes to smoke small amounts of cannabis. The important thing is not to exceed the amount of THC you want to consume and adjust the doses according to your needs.
What are microdoses for?
Cannabis microdoses are useful for treating a long list of disorders, including anxiety, chronic pain, stress, inflammation, mood disorders and epilepsy.
In addition, cannabis microdoses have been reported to relieve symptoms of anxiety without producing the psychoactive effects often associated with consuming large amounts of THC.
What are the benefits of cannabis microdosing?
The benefits of cannabis microdosing are many and varied.
Some of them include:
- Access to the therapeutic benefits of cannabis without feeling the psychoactive effects of THC.
- Relief of anxiety symptoms without producing paranoia.
- Treatment of chronic pain, inflammation and mood disorders.
- Improved sleep quality.
- Potential increase in creativity and productivity.
How to make cannabis microdoses at home?
If you want to microdose cannabis at home, you’ll need some basic resources, such as a strain of cannabis with a high THC content, a scale to measure doses, and a vaporizer, pipe, or cannabis edible.
Once you have everything you need, you should start by calculating the amount of THC you want to consume and dividing it into small doses.
For example, if you want to consume 10mg of THC, you can divide it into five doses of 2mg each. Then, you should ingest one dose and wait about 30 minutes to see how you feel. If you don’t feel anything, consume another dose and wait another 30 minutes.
Continue in this manner until you reach the amount of THC you want to consume.
Who should use microdoses?
Cannabis microdoses can be useful for anyone who wants to experience the therapeutic benefits of the plant without feeling its psychoactive effects.
However, if you have a history of psychological or psychiatric disorders, you may want to talk to a doctor before attempting to microdose cannabis.
What are the side effects of microdosing cannabis?
Like any substance, microdosing cannabis often has side effects. Some of the most common side effects include drowsiness, dizziness, nausea, and dry mouth.
Keep in mind that the side effects of microdosing cannabis are generally much milder than those of larger doses of THC.
Cannabis microdosing is an effective and safe way to experience the therapeutic benefits of THC without feeling its psychoactive effects. If you decide to microdose cannabis, it is important to do so responsibly and adjust dosages according to your needs and preferences.
Remember that microdosing is a powerful tool, but it should be used with caution and always under the supervision of a doctor or health professional.
