In recent years, the trend of microdosing has taken the cannabis industry by storm. Whether you’re a seasoned cannabis connoisseur or a newbie looking to dip your toes into the world of THC, microdosing can offer a new and exciting way to experience the benefits of cannabis without the intense psychoactive effects.

What is Microdosing?

Microdosing involves taking small, controlled doses of THC and other cannabinoids to achieve a subtle, but still noticeable, effect. The idea is to find the optimal dosage that provides just the right amount of relief, relaxation, or creativity, without feeling overwhelmed or impaired.

Here at The Clear, we believe that everyone should have the opportunity to explore cannabis in their own way. That’s why we’ve developed a range of products specifically designed to allow for microdosing. Whether you prefer THC vape pens, THC tinctures, THC edibles, or have just never tried cannabis before, we’ve compiled some valuable insights, tips, and guidance to help you make the most of your THC microdosing experience.

Start Low and Go Slow

The key to successful microdosing is to start with a very low dose and gradually increase until you find your sweet spot. It’s important to remember that everyone’s tolerance and sensitivity to THC is different, so what works for one person may not work for another.

DripCees by The Clear make it easy to microdose because DripCees gummies come with scored lines making it easy to split by hand. For example, if you wanted a lower dose from a THC gummy that is 10mg, you can split one DripCees Enjoy Gummy in half so one dose will be about 5mg THC, or easily split it into four pieces so each piece is about 2.5mg THC each.

How much is a microdose of cannabis?

A microdose of THC is dependent on your body’s tolerance to THC relating to how often you take it, and differences in your body’s metabolism and genetics. Those who have never consumed cannabis before might want to start with a low dosage of 1mg THC and 1mg of CBD and then wait to see how they feel before taking more.

Typically, a microdose is 2mg – 2.5mg of THC. For reference, the typical THC doses in cannabis products bought at a dispensary are 10mg THC per piece and sometimes 5mg THC per piece.  Taking 2mg – 2.5mg is starting low, and waiting to see how it affects you before taking more. Remember that it’s better to ingest too little THC than too much THC!

Experiment with Different THC Products

Not all cannabis products are created equal when it comes to microdosing, and you might be wondering what the best ways are to microdose cannabis. Vape pens are one method, though many factors can affect how much THC you receive from a vape pen and they can be harder to control. It’s best to take small puffs on the lowest setting if you are microdosing with vape pens or cartridges and wait to see how you feel.

Tinctures, on the other hand, offer a discreet and easy way to control your dosage with a measured dropper, and are typically easier to consume with precision. They are designed to be absorbed under your tongue and sink through the skin of your mouth and into the bloodstream.

The most popular way to microdose is with edibles. Just be sure to choose products with low THC content. Also, pay attention to whether they are fast-acting edibles or not as the onset of effects for traditional edibles can be up to one hour or more and fast-acting edibles can be felt in as little as 15-20 minutes.

Keep a Journal

Keeping track of your experiences can help you fine-tune your microdosing routine. Note the time, dosage, effects, and any other relevant factors such as food or drink consumed beforehand. This will not only help you find your optimal dosage, but it will also allow you to identify any patterns or trends.

Be Mindful of Your Intentions

Microdosing can be a wonderful tool for enhancing creativity, focus, or relaxation, but it’s important to approach it with intention. Before microdosing, take a moment to set your intentions for the experience. This will help you stay grounded and make the most of the subtle effects.

Maybe you’re wondering what medical conditions or symptoms people have that microdosing cannabis can help with. There are a few conditions that physicians and patients have asserted are helped by microdosing THC. For example, patients are microdosing cannabis to self-medicate for conditions such as depression, stress, anxiety, pain, PTSD, and to help them sleep and improve focus.

Being mindful of what experience you are trying to have with microdosing can help you understand what works best for you to achieve the best results. If you have questions about getting a medical marijuana card, we have a blog that outlines how this process works.

Practice Self-Care

As with any cannabis experience, it’s important to prioritize self-care. Stay hydrated, get plenty of rest, and engage in activities that bring you joy and relaxation. Taking care of your physical and mental well-being will ensure a positive and safe microdosing experience.
