Your Simple Guide to Controlled Cannabis Dosing
Dosing is defined as the administration of a substance in an appropriate and controlled quantity. Bearing that in mind, most people want to know exactly what they are putting into their bodies and in what amount. This is particularly important with medical cannabis use. Accurate dosing of marijuana products helps monitor cannabis intake as well as planning for how much cannabis patients need to purchase in order to properly support their recommended dose.
There are several products and methods that allow the most accurate dosing of cannabis, that we will discuss below: while traditional joint smoking of cannabis is more common and familiar to casual users, it does not offer as much accuracy when it comes to dosing that medical marijuana patients may desire. There are many ways you can ingest cannabis medically, which include capsules, tinctures, edibles, concentrates (live resin, rosin), and inhalation of dried cannabis flower by smoking or using a vaporizer.
Consumption methods like smoking and dabbing (dried flower and concentrates specifically) do not offer a specific amount of active cannabinoids (THC, CBD) taken in with each “hit” or “drag.” The licensed producer will give a range of cannabinoids in these products, but you cannot be sure of exactly how many mg of THC, for example, that you’re ingesting with each puff. The amount of cannabis taken in while smoking is reliant on several factors; how much of it you smoked (one drag as opposed to a whole pre-roll, for example), the THC content of the strain, terpenes, etc. If you want to be more consistent with dosing, that problem is easily solved with pre-dosed cannabis products!
It’s important to keep in mind, proper dosing is also pertinent in regards to the chance of developing a tolerance. Regular cannabis use over time may lower your tolerance; meaning its effects may become less prevalent or not prevalent at all. Many people find they have to increase their cannabis intake over time due to this. Appropriately dosing on a regular basis can help avoid that issue!
Here are a few cannabis products available at our site guaranteed to help you monitor your daily cannabis intake. These include several products under the cannabis edible and cannabis oil categories.
