In today’s cannabis world, many consumers are potency-obsessed; a product testing the highest in THC is of top concern. However, there is a growing segment of the market that is advocating for less consumption instead of more.

This approach is called microdosing. Users consume very small amounts of cannabis to experience the benefits of THC while avoiding its psychoactive effects. This approach is also great for first-time users who can be introduced to THC in a careful, controlled manner.

Consumers are turning to microdosing for several medical conditions, including depression, stress, anxiety, pain, to improve sleep, and increase focus. As for chronic conditions such as multiple sclerosis, larger quantities of cannabis may be necessary to appease a flare-up of symptoms. However, microdosed cannabis helps maintain remission when used as part of a maintenance plan once a flare-up subsides.

The state of Massachusetts recommends a starting dose of 5-10 milligrams with marijuana products. For microdosing, a good starting point may be just 1 milligram of THC. Each consumer is different; users are encouraged to experiment to find what works best for them. The goal is to find a dose that gives the consumer the most minimal effect possible while also reaping the medical benefits.

Why microdose?

Microdosing is great for consumers who want the maximum benefit of THC without the ‘stoned’, paranoid, or lethargic feelings that can sometimes be experienced in higher doses. Microdosing is being used to:

  • Regulate mood
  • Boost creativity
  • Increase focus
  • Enhance productivity
  • Reduce anxiety
  • Improve sleep

What about CBD?

Microdosing generally refers to THC but can also be practiced with CBD. When THC and CBD are microdosed in combination, users tend to experience greater therapeutic effects and less THC side effects.

There are numerous methods for microdosing cannabis, but some may allow you more refined control over your dose than others. For example, smoking or vaping is an option, with microdosers taking a single puff, waiting to feel any effect, and then taking another if necessary. The problem with this approach is that controlling the exact amount of THC proves to be difficult and inconsistent. A more reliable and controlled way to microdose is by using tinctures, oils, or edibles. Start with one drop from a tincture, wait and see how you feel, then adjust as necessary. With edibles, it will be beneficial to find products that have lower THC contents so you can easily break off microdosed portions.

How do I microdose?

1. If you are a regular user, abstain from cannabis for 2 days.

2. Thereafter, consume 1 milligram of THC, preferably in a tincture or oil to measure the amount precisely.

3. Wait 45-60 minutes and check to see if you notice any symptom relief.

4. If you feel no effect, increase your dose by 1 milligram.

5. If necessary, repeat this process over the next several days, increasing your dose by small increments.

6. Once you discover the amount that provides you with noticeable effects, that is your minimum effective dose
