When you hear the term microdose, your mind often leads to psychedelics like psilocybin mushrooms or LSD.
While microdosing with these substances has shown positive results in countless studies, who’s to say you can’t microdose with cannabis?
We’ve partnered with premium Delta 8 cannabis company Cannabis Life to create this guide of everything there is to know about microdoses.
Before we proceed, be sure to check out their selection of gummies, and softgels to help get you started on your microdosing journey.
Microdosing sounds a lot like what it is, taking microdoses of a substance to experience the mildest effects possible.
Many achieve this with psychedelics to help boost creativity, reduce anxiety, depression, PTSD, etc. In terms of Delta 8, there’s no magic number for how much to microdose.
We recommend that you consider your weight, age, and tolerance to cannabis before microdosing in order to experience the mild yet highly beneficial effects.
The key is to “start low and go slow.”
For example, you can start with 2.5 mg of Delta 8 THC for a few days, then move your way up to 5 mg to analyze the effects of minimal dosage increases.
Delta 8 THC is known as Delta 9 THC’s creative and productive cousin. Microdosing Delta 8 is perfect for sharpening your creative tools and focussing on the task at hand.
While regular dosing might make you feel more lifted and euphoric, microdosing Delta 8 will keep those creative gears turning without an overpowering high.
Like we mentioned above, microdosing Delta 8 can make you feel much more productive and motivated to finish your daily tasks.
Because Delta 8 directly interacts with the brain’s CB1 receptors, it often helps cognitive functions.
To take advantage of this, microdose your Delta 8 product consistently throughout the week to increase the activity of the acetylcholine neurotransmitter in the brain; this helps with memory, cognition, and brain resilience.
Managing your mental health regardless of microdosing is crucial, but Delta 8 microdoses can help kickstart that journey when you’re out of options.
Many users microdose with Delta 8 to help manage PTSD, chronic pain, anxiety, depression, and insomnia.
Research has demonstrated that using Delta 8 can directly improve mental health and quality of sleep. You can think of microdosing as taking a daily dose of medication.
