The Art Of Marijuana Microdosing
We’ve all been there: that feeling at the end of a long day when you just want to light up and get as blazed as possible. Go up in smoke, consume edibles, and vape it till kingdom come. However, for people who are trying to obtain the most medical benefits from cannabis, this isn’t the best way to do it.
The solution comes in the form of microdosing, which is more than just the latest buzzword in the cannabis industry. Microdosing is all about using smaller amounts of marijuana in order to enjoy its medicinal properties without getting stoned AF.
This mode of cannabis intake has several benefits:
In short, microdosing promotes wellness instead of inebriation.
Doctors agree. According to Dr. Dustin Sulak, a Medical Doctor in New England: “When I started my practice, I was surprised to see that some patients were using very low dosages (e.g. 1 puff), while other patients require much higher dosages (e.g. 1 joint or a potent edible) to achieve optimal benefits. Over time, I began to notice that most patients using small amounts of cannabis were getting better and more sustainable results than their high-dosage counterparts with similar conditions.
Eventually I discovered that most people have a certain threshold dosage of cannabis, below which they’ll actually experience a gradual increase in health benefits over time, and above which they’ll start building tolerance, experiencing diminishing benefits, and more side effects.”
Even a study conducted by the Medicinal Cannabis Research Center at the University of California shows that lower doses of the plant are more beneficial for neuropathic pain. Thankfully these days there are so many weed products on the market that make it easier for us to microdose: small edibles, vaporizers, and one-hitter paraphernalias all take the guesswork out of microdosing. Microdosing then becomes useful for the medical patient as well as individuals who want to be able to take care of business or who still need to function properly around other people without running the risk of looking or acting like a stoned buffoon.
In fact, taking too much marijuana is probably the reason why you feel fatigued, dizzy, paranoid, anxious, or have the munchies. Just by reducing your dose, you can enjoy a better high AND enjoy the medicinal properties of the plant. Aside from these side effects, another sign that you may actually be overdosing is that your tolerance for marijuana continues to increase.
