Micro-dosing Cannabis Edibles
Many Look To Edibles For Alternative Ways To Consume Cannabis Without Smoking Or Vaping.
Edibles are an excellent option for those who are looking to stray from smoking. While it takes 1-2 hours to feel the effects of an edible, the effects are often stronger and longer lasting (6-10 hours). Patience is key when you’re exploring edibles for the first time.
Advantages Of Edibles
Cannabis has been cited by many to be effective in alleviating aches and pains, easing anxiety, promoting a restful night’s sleep, and more. But not all cannabis products are made the same. A product formulated for sleep may not be the best for pain management for example. Navigating through the hundreds of edibles on the market can be a challenge, especially for those new to cannabis.
Often, CBD or THC alone is not as effective for tackling medical ailments. The key to maximum relief is finding the right ratio and dosage. A Certified Cannabis Consultant can help guide you to finding the right products to meet your needs.
Microdosing Cannabis Edibles
Cannabis has immediate and cumulative effects when utilized over time. We’ve found that smaller amounts throughout the day can provide more relief than having one concentrated dose per day.
Another option for micro-dosing is utilizing a tincture. Tinctures allow you to control your own dose to ensure you’re staying within your therapeutic window. To avoid any adverse effects, start low and go slow. You can always take a larger dose next time if you need more relief. A sublingual option allows for faster absorption into the bloodstream than a traditional edible. Finding Your Ideal Dose
Cannabis-infused chocolates are available in a wide variety of strengths and ratios.
Washington state has taken the guess work out of figuring out your dose. While 10mg may not seem like much, it can provide a potent experience that lasts 6-10 hours. You can pick up single candies as low as $3, or stock up with a ten pack of your favourite chocolates or candies. Additionally, you can divide your edible into smaller, more manageable doses. In most edibles, the cannabinoids are dispersed evenly throughout each piece.
Healthy fats may help your system absorb an edible with greater efficiency, leading to stronger effects. If you’re trying to find a strong edible, look to chocolates and cookies. Edibles with a 1:1 ratio can also be used recreationally. The CBD can provide a more uplifting body experience compared to a THC only treat.
Creating The Optimum Experience
If you’re an experienced consumer or trying edibles for the first time, having the right set and setting enhances your experience. Here are some tips for having the ideal experience with an edible:
• If you’re consuming at home, tidy around the house. No need for unnecessary anxiety! • Get your favourite TV shows and movies on your Netflix queue. Feeling musical? Put together a playlist to enjoy! • Edibles are not exempt from causing the munchies. Stock up with your favourite snacks ahead of time. Fresh fruit can help combat the munchies and dry mouth all in one! • Keep yourself hydrated. Having soda and juice may sound the most appealing, but make sure you’re getting enough water. • Start low & go slow. The 1-2 hours it takes for your edible to kick in can seem like a lifetime. Be patient and enjoy!
