Some helpful tips for Microdosing
- When you smoke weed and drink alcohol at the same time, you can experience nausea and/or vomiting or become anxious. Mixing these two may also increase the risk of experiencing psychotic symptoms. It is therefore recommended to avoid doing this as the results can be unpredictable.
- Consider the potency of your cannabis and the CBD and THC ratio. High-CBD, low-THC cannabis is a desirable ratio to get all the benefits while minimizing psychoactivity.
- Several factors such as metabolism and physiology may affect your experience. Always be mindful of the ingredients in your edibles.
- Finding what works for you may take some time. What is considered a low dose for some people may not cut it for others. That’s why it’s important to check with your doctor if the dosage and administration suit you.
