The Miracle of Microdosing
It’s happened to most of us at least once. Your heart begins to race, the room feels too small and you start to sweat. Is this normal? Does breathing usually seem this hard? Why is it so difficult to swallow? I must be having a heart attack!?
The dreaded feeling I’m referencing is that of being over-medicated.
Whether it was your first time smoking, your first bong hit or dab, or maybe it was your first edible, the outcome is inevitably the same: you are just plain uncomfortable. Paranoia can set in and you may just want to curl up into a ball and sleep it off (which works by the way if all else fails).
Many products entering the cannabis market recently have been created with one goal in mind: potency. Even flower strains today are genetically trained to increase their THC content. While this a gift to some with high tolerance levels or severe pain, for those of us who just need a little bit of THC to do the trick, we find ourselves trying to find the perfect balance of effects, the “goldilocks effect” of medicating.
Enter microdosing. Microdosing is exactly what it sounds like; Ingesting, consuming or smoking small amounts of cannabis or cannabis products to produce your desired effect.
At Natural Cannabis Company we understand that everyone meditates differently. We all have unique tolerance levels and preferred ways to medicate. For those who prefer flower, we carry several strains that contain low THC levels, or both low THC and higher CBD levels. To the microdosing dabbers out there, we are always looking for quality CBD concentrates that tend to fall in the 1:1 ratio of THC:CBD. We even carry edibles that contain 5-10mg THC per serving, offering the perfect amount of THC for a calm, smooth and relaxing experience for those who are overwhelmed by some of the THC packed goliaths of today’s edible market.
However, should you find yourself in that uncomfortable sensation of being over-medicated, don’t panic! There are a few ways to get you through the undesirable experience. CBD is a nifty compound found naturally in cannabis, gifted with the ability to provide relaxation without the common “stoned” effect, and (in a useful twist of nature) is also wonderful at counteracting the sometimes negative side effects of THC. A couple sprays of an 18:1 or higher CBD tincture, or a toke or two of pure hemp-based CBD concentrates, can help to pull you out of an uncomfortable sensation . A cold glass of water and a few refreshing splashes on your face can help to ground you as well.
Cannabis can help an overwhelmingly broad spectrum of symptoms. We encourage you to find the best way to medicate for yourself. Don’t let one bad experience scare you away! We are here to help you navigate the sometimes confusing maze of cannabis products available today, and above all we want you to feel comfortable and educated when visiting us for your needs.
