Finding the Appropriate Medical Marijuana Dosage

Medical marijuana is becoming more well known as a treatment option when compared to pharmaceuticals. Patients are opting for medicinal cannabis due to less side effects and the risk of addiction to opiates. When treating with cannabis, it’s important to find the appropriate medical marijuana dosage. Your experienced agents at Mary and Main will be sure to assist you in finding the right marijuana strain and dosage that works with your body. It’s important to note that medical marijuana dosage can greatly vary from person to person, as there are a number of factors to consider. This includes the preferred method of consumption, the concentration of the strain, tolerance level, and more. 

Understanding Cannabis Dosage

When visiting a doctor for pharmaceuticals, one is typically prescribed a dosage with their medicine. However, medical marijuana dispensaries are different, as each product with vary with percentages of THC. It’s important that you try and maintain consistency with your dosage and percentage of THC to avoid building a tolerance to cannabis. It’s difficult to fully know how much THC you are ingesting when smoking vape or flower. You may know the exact percentage of TCH the inhalants hold, but THC can be lost in smoke making it a challenge to calculate just how much is getting into your lungs. 

 Maintaining Consistency With THC Dosage 

Although it’s difficult to keep consistent dosage with vape or flower, there are other options. Transdermal patches or cannabis tinctures are great consumption options that offer exact dosage instructions. Tinctures are often used by patients who prefer to keep a study level of THC in their system without feeling the psychoactive effects. This is commonly known as microdosing and prolongs the amount of time it takes to build a tolerance.
