How to Find the Appropriate Dose
Cannabis can be a wonderful remedy, but it is important to get the right dose. Avoid the “bad trip” by following our simple guidelines.
“Start low and go slow”
Doses can start as low as 2-5mg of THC. You can always go up from there.
Too much THC is not lethal, but can cause or exacerbate anxiety and mood disorders. Remember, no one has ever overdosed on THC.
Less is more! An excessive amount could be less therapeutic than a moderate dose.
The goal is to administer consistent, measurable doses to achieve the desired relief with minimal undesired effects.
Titrate to find the optimal dose
Use same dose and ratio for several days before going up. You will not have a good read after only one use.
Ratio: find the one that works for you: CBD only, 1:1 CBD:THC, 3:1, THC only
In general CBD will have a relaxing and anti-inflammatory effect
THC is what provides the psychoactive effect or “high”, and may provide an analgesic effect (pain reducing)
All products sold through legal dispensaries will be labeled with the CBD: THC ratio or with the percent of THC and CBD included
Trial and error
Record each dosage and product and the effect that it has on you
Try a dosage/product for a few days (up to 14) before coming to any conclusions
Research what products and combinations have worked for others with your symptoms
When trying any new medication or remedy, we recommend using a tracking diary.
