What are the potential benefits of microdosing cannabis?

2 min read


Microdosing cannabis may be a beneficial way to achieve a relaxed, yet focused high. Consuming cannabis in smaller doses may help you avoid certain side effects like paranoia, anxiety or intense psychoactivity. Small doses of cannabis may provide a subtle, but profound form of healing and relief.

Microdosing marijuana isn’t for patients who lean on cannabis for potential chronic severe pain relief.  However, more and more patients are finding that lower doses of THC paired with a full spectrum cannabinoid profile may be a beneficial therapeutic solution for cannabis.

Cultivate an understanding of your endocannabinoid system by keeping a journal to track cannabis strain type, consumption method, dosage and potential side effects. Take your time and be patient when figuring out what dosage and consumption method work best for you. Be mindful of other elements that may impact the outcome of your medicinal experience when microdosing. Your environment, state of mind, hydration and nutrition can all affect your experience.

It is recommended to  start with low doses and build up from there. Certain consumption methods may allow you to control your intake more accurately. When picking your medicine, we suggest products that have a higher CBD to THC ratio or, at least, a balanced one. CBD may mitigate the potential psychoactive effect of THC. A more even ratio may provide a less intense psychoactive experience for newer patients.



Like in all other forms of medicine, you want to treat yourself with the lowest effective dose. Micro dosing may help you identify that spot as you may need to reset your THC tolerance.. Whatever the case, you can try to reset your tolerance to the potential effects of cannabis products.

The art of microdosing requires patience and mindfulness. If you do it right, you may be on your way to achieving harmony between your mind and body.
