Microdosing may sound like a technical term that you need a Ph.D. to understand, but when used in the context of marijuana, microdosing is the newest and most effective way to use cannabis and be productive at work.
Microdosing Embraces the “Less is More” Philosophy
If you’re the type to get as high as you can every time, your tolerance is bound to go up, leaving you spending more and more with every dispensary visit. Microdosing is when you use only a small amount of a substance, in this case, cannabis.
Microdosing, in this case, is used to improve your everyday routine by providing you with a kick in your step without experiencing overly drowsy like when you consume too much THC. If you’re looking to reap all those psychoactive effects from THC for recreation or as a treatment, microdosing may not be for you.
Microdosing Can Improve Your Cannabis Experience
However, if you’re a hustler who’s looking to improve themselves, microdosing may be for you. Microdosing can be an effective way to improve your cannabis tolerance without giving up your habit. Microdosing can enable your brain’s cell receptors to return to normal levels and become more sensitive to all of cannabis’ therapeutic cannabinoids.
In small amounts, cannabis has been shown to improve ADHD symptoms. Not only can it improve focus, but it can positively impact behavior in patients with ADHD. This can be a big help if you find it hard to concentrate on your work.
Essentially, microdosing takes full advantage of the “less is more” philosophy. Research into other psychedelic drugs like psilocybin mushrooms and LSD are also showing that microdosing is the future of using these drugs to treating many mental health conditions and everyday stress.
How to Microdose Efficiently
It’s harder to gauge your dosage when you burn your cannabis flower because most of the active compounds in the plant are combusted. Vaporization may be the best option for those looking to more accurately regulate their cannabis use. Accurately labeled edibles can also be an effective way to micro dose, since you can split the product into your ideal dose.
If you are able to consume cannabis in the workplace, a strain of sativa provides energizing day-time effects. While the research may be missing, many people state that microdosing (5 mg or less of cannabis) makes them more productive. If you’re looking to minimize the psychoactive effects, opt for a high-CBD strain to use.
High doses of cannabis work well for serious medicinal benefits and to reap the most psychoactive effects, but it can also be a double edged sword. People who experience anxiety may feel paranoid and more anxious if they over-consume cannabis. At low doses, however, anxiety patients tend to relax and become more focused.
With so many products out there, it’s easier than ever to micro dose. From cannabis-infused cold brew that only has 15 mg of THC to small mints that are 5 mg a piece, you don’t need to light up to enjoy the effects in the workplace.
