The Benefits of Micro-dosing THC & Cannabis

While the market often promotes high THC products, we are going to dive into the benefits of micro-dosing THC & Cannabis along with the proper dosages and why consumers love it. This trend of micro-dosing is growing because, as the consumer, you reap all of the natural benefits while carrying throughout your day as usual. This guide will help you understand the term and how it applies to cannabis products.

What is Microdosing?

Microdosing is the practice of taking small amounts of cannabis and THC to experience the effects without distracting you from your day. Research has also found that micro-dosing cannabis can be more effective than a moderate or large dose at reducing pain and anxiety and treating other symptoms. With many products and treatments, start slow to ensure you only take an amount of cannabis to feel the effects.

The Optimal Dosage for Microdosing

There are many benefits of cannabis; recreationally, many consumers use it to conquer pain, get through a stressful day, or enhance nature’s beauty. Depending on the consumer, a microdose can be anywhere from 1mg to 5mg. In comparison, a standard dose of cannabis can range from 5mg to 10mg of THC. For first-time microdosers, most consumers start at 2.5mg; remember that micro-dosing is a great way to reap the medical benefits of THC while avoiding the psychoactive effect. It is important to start low and go slow with your doses as you identify your perfect balance.

Why Microdose

Most consumers turn to micro-dosing to treat conditions such as depression, stress, anxiety, and pain and to help improve focus and sleep. The list of why could go on forever, but it is more vital for you to identify why you should microdose THC. Consumers can opt to use these products in the morning or throughout the day to optimize the effects.

The Best Way to Microdose

Consumers who microdose often opt for sublingual methods as it allows the THC to enter the bloodstream quickly and effectively. Edibles are still a quality option for micro-dosing but pass through the digestive system and delay the effects. However, cannabis is converted into a more potent form through the digestive system as your liver metabolizes the compound. You will most commonly see edibles, tinctures, and cannabis beverages to deliver a microdose of cannabis and THC.


Low-dose edibles have become popular as more people venture into cannabis. To discuss low-dose options, visit your favorite dispensary and talk to a Budtender.


Sublingual such as tinctures is cannabis suspended in a liquid form. Unlike edibles you swallow, tinctures are absorbed under the tongue and work quickly. With all dosing, start with a few drops and determine the effects at your own pace.

Cannabis Beverages:

Another hot product is cannabis beverages because they offer a soda or seltzer consistency and contain lower doses of THC. Cannabis beverages are an excellent product for micro-dosing as you can measure your preferred amount.
