An Introduction To Microdosing Cannabis
What Is Microdosing?
Microdosing is the practice of consuming small doses of cannabis in order to enhance overall physical and mental well-being. A microdose is typically a fraction of the amount of cannabis that would traditionally be used, and it is often consumed on a regular, consistent basis.
Microdosing has become more popular in recent years as people look for ways to enjoy the benefits of substances like cannabis, without the effects being overly strong or inebriating.
How To Find Your Perfect Microdose
Just like any recreational substance, every person’s sensitivity to cannabis will vary slightly. That’s why it’s important that each individual starts small and works their way up until they find the ideal microdose for themselves.
Cann Social Tonics provide the perfect starting point, with an approachable THC microdose (2mg THC + 4mg CBD, actually). Start by drinking one, wait 15-20 minutes to feel the effects, and have another (and another…) as you build up to your perfect buzz. It’s really that easy!
Benefits of Microdosing THC
There are many reasons that people microdose THC, including potential benefits related to improved physical and psychological well-being. Research has shown that microdosing cannabis can lead to improved mood and reduced anxiety (Bogenschutz, 2015). In a study conducted by Fadiman (2011), individuals who microdosed reported improved creativity, focus, and overall well-being.
In addition to these potential direct benefits, microdosing weed can be part of an overall healthier lifestyle and approach to recreational consumption. For example, Cann is a perfect alternative to drinking alcohol. AKA why Cann was created in the first place: To provide a better-for-you alternative to alcoholic social drinks, with an uplifting social buzz and no next-day hangover.
As always, it’s important to note that the research on the benefits of microdosing is still in its early stages, and more research is needed to fully understand the scope of its effects.
Different Ways To Microdose THC
As microdosing THC grows in popularity, new microdosed products become available constantly. It’s important to read the label on any cannabis products before purchasing. Reputable brands will provide transparent ingredients and testing documentation so consumers know exactly what they’re getting.
Traditionally, people consumed cannabis by smoking it. Unfortunately, it can be difficult if not impossible, to know exactly how much cannabis one is consuming when they smoke (not to mention the long list of additional health concerns that come with smoking).
This has led to edibles rising in popularity in recent years. And although cannabis edibles provide a more accurate measure of dosage compared to smoking, their effects can still be inconsistent and unpredictable. This is due to the process by which cannabis enters the bloodstream when consumed in the form of solid food.
For these reasons and more, drinks like Cann have become many people’s first choice for microdosing cannabis. Since Cann is a liquid, it’s effects are felt fast (in 15-20 minutes), and taper off consistently and predictably. This means you can have one, gauge the effects, and have more until you achieve your preferred effect. Basically, just like you (used to) drink alcohol – without the hangovers.
