Microdosing cannabis makes good sense. The 8 benefits of cannabis microdosing were endorsed in a Rolling Stone article that read, “Welcome to marijuana 2.0. With microdosing, people are getting the maximum benefit from the minimum amount, without becoming stoned, paranoid, or lethargic. Some are microdosing to regulate their moods, boost their creativity, or enhance their workouts and yoga sessions.”
Microdosing is logical and disciplined. Of course, that’s enough to turn off some consumers. It certainly isn’t the way to dose if you were looking for that full euphoric hit. If you’re counting on the full couchlock chill, microdosing is not the way to use.
But, if you are looking to use at a minimum level of effect, microdosing is your best practice. Given how it works, how it impacts, and how it works in any dosing form, microdosing is perfect for those who want or need more control over their benefits and side effects.
It should prove very attractive to new consumers. One demographic, for instance, has been inhibited by the social stigma on cannabis use. Microdosing helps them start using at their own pace. Others like the idea of not making a commitment to smoking, dabbing, or vaping habits. And, yet others want to treat medical problems with a disciplined therapy that makes them more confident without joining the “stoner culture.”
Lacking quality research into microdosing, you must listen to the medical advice that sees little or no problem with a disciplined low dose regimen. However, there remains a core problem.
Without standardized labeling, you can’t measure dosage correctly or easily. Without data on the cannabis content, THC/CBD ration, or density. With more detail, you could measure and divide more accurately and confidently. And, doctors and researchers don’t like that margin of error.
Still, microdosing may be decide a large part of the cannabis market going forward. While it may seem like just another option now, everything indicates there is a sizable niche market for smaller edibles, increasing demand for fuller labeling, and better differentiated products. You’ll soon see smaller edibles, oils and vaporizers with micro-dosing directions.
