What is Microdosing Cannabis?

Microdosing is when you take a small amount of cannabis to create a specific effect without getting too high.

Steps on How to Microdose Cannabis:

  1. Learn your dose. Learning the right dosage for your medical needs takes a great deal of self-control, as it’s easy to over-do it. Start small and monitor the benefits of that dose.
  2. Try out different strains and methods. Different strains and methods of ingestion change the effects of cannabis. Smoking or vaping will make you feel different than an edible or sublingual. Find which method works best for you.
  3. Keep track. Some people go so far as to keep a journal of dose amount, time, strain, and method. But if that’s a little too involved for you, make sure you’re still mindful of those things and the benefits you experienced. Maybe you do better on days when you have a little less, or take sativa over indica.

The great thing about microdosing is that there are many different ways to do it, and with so many options out there, it’s hard to get it wrong--unless of course you take too much, but even then, keep track of your dose and re-evaluate the next day.

What are Terpenes?

Terpenes are aromatic oils that are responsible for giving cannabis that skunky smell or sweet, fruity taste. However, cannabis isn’t the only plant that contains terpenes. In fact, they are naturally found in many plants and flowers including mangoes, lemongrass, pine needles, cinnamon, basil, rosemary, and peppermint to name a few. It is believed that terpenes developed in these plants as a way to attract pollinators. More than 100 different types of terpenes have been identified in the cannabis plant.

What is the Entourage Effect?

The entourage effect is a proposed mechanism by which molecules that occur together in nature produce better effects when taken together, rather than taken alone. This is where cannabinoids and terpenes found in cannabis come into play. Even though CBD, THC or terpenes can work alone for some effects, certain patient-based studies have revealed that they often create better results ingested together.

What are Cannabinoids?

Cannabinoids are chemical compounds found within the cannabis plant. The acid forms of these compounds, like THCA and CBDA, are naturally synthesized within the plant. Through a process called decarboxylation, these cannabinoids are converted to the forms that we are most familiar with, like THC and CBD. Decarboxylation is achieved either slowly over time through the drying and curing process, or quickly via heat. Cannabinoids (specifically THC and CBD) drive most of the mental and physical effects of cannabis consumption.
