If you’re looking for a way to enjoy the benefits of THC but want to avoid getting high, microdosing can be a great alternative. By having a better understanding of what microdosing is and how to get started, you can take advantage of the many potential benefits.
What is Microdosing?
Specifically, microdosing refers to a practice where you consume very low doses of a substance (such as THC). The idea is that by consuming such a small dose, your body reaps many of the health and wellness benefits without the unwanted feeling of being high. As a result, you can function normally yet still enjoy such benefits as reduced anxiety, relief from chronic pain , and an overall improved mood.
Where to Begin with Microdosing
As you can probably imagine, microdosing THC is something that must be done very carefully; in general, the best words of wisdom to keep in mind when it comes to microdosing THC is to go “low and slow.” This means starting off with very small doses until you’ve figured out what your tolerance is like and what your ideal dose is to achieve the desired effects.
Every body is different, so everybody’s reaction to various doses of THC differs greatly. Generally, it’s best to start with a dose of about 2.5 mg. From there, you can slowly increase your dose by 2.5 mg each time until you’ve figure out the right dosage for your needs. The easiest way to microdose THC is through a tincture, as this is the best way to know exactly how much THC you’re getting.
Microdosing raw flower, on the other hand, can get more complicated because different strains will always have different levels of THC. Edibles can also be challenging when it comes to microdosing, though with proper labeling and portioning, it is possible.

If you do decide to give THC microdosing a try, the most important thing to remember is that it will take some time to figure out the dose that is best for you.
