Ask 420: What is microdosing?

You may have heard a lot about “microdosing” lately, as the media is latching onto this concept that’s making waves around the world. Microdosing has long been linked to psychedelic drugs like LSD, but microdosing is increasingly being embraced by cannabis users, especially for medicinal purposes.

What microdosing is, is simply taking small amounts of marijuana, to reap the benefits without the side effects. This is especially popular for the THC in cannabis, which has incredible pain relief properties, but does have psychoactive properties as well. Microdosing THC allows patients to feel the benefits of the pain reliever without feeling “stoned”. A dose of 5 to 10 milligrams is a good starting point for microdosing.
