Microdosing Edibles - Where do I begin?
Microdosing edibles involves taking small amounts of cannabis-infused products to achieve a subtle, but noticeable, effect. Here are some steps to help you find the right dose through trial and error:
Start with a low dose: Begin with a small amount of edible, around 2.5-5 mg of THC, and wait at least two hours before consuming any more. This will allow you to gauge the effects of the dose and how it affects you.
Keep a journal: Record how you feel after each dose. Note the time you consumed it, the dosage, and how it made you feel mentally and physically. This will help you to understand your individual tolerance and find your optimal dose.
Gradually increase the dose: If you find that a low dose does not provide the desired effects, gradually increase the dosage by 2.5-5 mg at a time. Again, wait at least two hours before consuming more to allow the effects to fully develop.
Consider CBD: CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis. Adding CBD to your microdosing routine can help mitigate any unwanted side effects from THC, such as anxiety or paranoia.
Be patient: Finding the right microdose can take time and patience. It's important to approach it with a curious and open mindset, and remember that everyone's experience with cannabis is unique.
Here's an example below
of how to record your experiences -
Date: [Insert date]
Time: [Insert time of consumption]
Product: [Insert name or type of edible]
Dosage: [Insert amount consumed]
Duration: [Insert how long the effects lasted]
Effects: [Insert any physical or mental effects experienced, such as relaxation, pain relief, increased appetite, anxiety, etc.]
Intensity: [Insert how strong the effects were on a scale of 1-10]
Notes: [Insert any other observations or notes, such as whether the effects were too strong, not strong enough, or just right. Also note any environmental or situational factors that may have affected the experience, such as stress levels or activities done while under the influence.]
By keeping track of these details over multiple experiences, you can start to identify patterns and adjust your dosage accordingly to find your optimal dose. Remember to start with a low dose and gradually increase until you find the right level for you.
