Microdosing: a simple approach to medical cannabis

By: Claudia Gutierrez January 23, 2024

As a long-time cannabis user, I have experienced a growing tolerance for the substance THC, tetrahydrocannabinol. The long-term use of cannabis has led me to develop a tolerance for this substance. The cannabis plant contains a compound called tetrahydrocannabinol which produces the feeling of high and euphoria. If the tolerance for cannabis increases, the patient will have to take more medication to experience the same effects. Microdosing cannabis is one method of addressing this issue. It is actually said to reset tolerance levels. When a patient uses small and controlled doses, their body is actually able to reset its tolerance levels for THC. This will actually allow the patient to experience the desired effects with smaller amounts, which in turn saves them money in the long run as they will not need to purchase a lot of medicine and can save themselves a few bucks at the dispensary.

In addition to saving the patient money, microdosing can also help with the psychoactive effects that come with higher doses. This is especially in patients not as experienced with the product.

Microdose gummies and edibles offer a discreet and precise way to consume THC. This makes it easier to manage your cannabis experience while avoiding strong psychoactive effects. Dispensaries such as Surterra Wellness, offer edibles starting as low as 2.5 mg for an even more controlled dose.

With tablets and capsules, you can conveniently control your THC intake, making it easier for you to incorporate into your daily routine. These products may be useful for managing certain health conditions and may minimize the risk of overwhelming psychoactive effects while minimizing the risk of overwhelming effects. As an alternative to smoking or vaping, capsules and/or tablets can be customized to meet any given need.

In order to maximize the effectiveness of these products, it is important to consult with a medical professional. Ask questions and do your own research to find out what works best for you. Medical cannabis is relatively new, so there is no one-size-fits-all product. It is therefore imperative that patients understand that they must experiment on their own to find out what works best for them. Please start at a low concentration and progress gradually.
