Microdosing - Medicine in Mini Doses

Microdosing – Medicine in Mini Doses

Cannabis is growing in popularity from a medical standpoint. People are realizing the benefits for many conditions, including chronic pain. The therapeutic uses of cannabis can help relieve suffering, help people relax, and support an overall feeling of well-being. While people love using cannabis, the THC can cause some side effects including a foggy brain and memory loss. Microdosing can help alleviate some of the side effects to provide a better overall experience. 

 

What is Microdosing

Microdosing can be used to tap into the therapeutic benefits of cannabis without as many side effects. The secret is in the dosage. Microdosing is when a person takes a smaller amount of cannabis 1-5 times per day. Every person is unique so we will need to consult their professional team to find out how to dose appropriately for maximum benefit. This may take some experimentation to find out what product and dosage to use to find relief. It can help to track it in a journal that looks at any side effects, the benefits, dosages, and daily accounting of use over time. This helps measure progress to see if it is helping or if tweaks need to be made. 

 

Why People Love Microdosing

The goal of microdosing is not to get high. Ultimately, the person wants to do away with side effects and balance out their use of cannabis with going to work, hanging out with friends, and improving their quality of life. For some people, microdosing makes more sense than using other cannabis products. The relaxation and positive benefits are there but people often feel less stigma if they are changing their approach to the use of cannabis. Everyone will receive the benefits of microdosing differently so it is up to them to decide how much and when to start trying this new approach. 

 

Benefits of Microdosing

When it comes to pain relief, people will try different strains and types of medicinal cannabis before they find what works. Microdosing gives some added benefits without the side effects for some. The cost may also be lower with microdosing. Small doses of THC mimic compounds in the body from the endocannabinoid system. Microdosing is about helping the body work more efficiently to heal itself and provide relief. Many people are looking for relief from pain but they may also suffer from other conditions that can find relief from dosing in smaller increments. This can include:

  • Insomnia
  • Epilepsy
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

 

Taking cannabis in smaller doses allows it to work slowly in the system rather than using more of it at once. Some people respond better to smaller doses for their conditions. If microdosing is of interest, it helps to contact a professional who understands dosages, strains, and types of cannabis best suited for microdosing.
