Can Microdosing Cannabis Boost Your Mood?
Posted: February 17th, 2022
Microdosing has been in the news a lot lately, and while most of the stories have centered on psychedelics, it’s possible and effective to microdose cannabis. In fact, studies have shown that a little THC can go a long way to treating pain, PTSD, and anxiety; in fact research has shown that in many cases, less is often better. With the release of our fast acting Wine Country Gummies and proprietary rapid release technology, now is the perfect time to explore what effect microdosing can have on your day. Learn how much, when, and how to consume cannabis more effectively and begin a microdosing routine today.
Gone are the days of guesswork when it comes to ingesting cannabis edibles. When friends handed us homemade goodies it was a roll of the dice. Did that cookie have 2 milligrams of THC, or 20? With the arrival of legalization came strict testing and dosing measurements to ensure consistency, and now we’ve started to enter the new frontier of both regulated and controlled dosing. And now, the latest science has allowed us to control not just how much, but how quickly and through what methods cannabinoids enter our system. When your goal is to get by rather than “get high” you’re ready to start exploring the world of microdosing cannabis.
The Art and Benefit of Microdosing Edibles
Most people who microdose cannabis opt for sublingual methods like tinctures, tablets, strips and sprays because it allows the THC to enter the bloodstream quickly and consistently. Edibles can be trickier because they pass through the digestive system where the delta-9-THC from cannabis is converted into 11-hydroxy-THC when your liver metabolizes the compound. This new more potent form of THC that’s created within your body is not only 1.5 to 7 times stronger than delta-9-THC, but is longer lasting; staying in your system for six to eight hours as opposed to the two to three. This new THC created by your own body means that it can be easy to over exert yourself on edibles and quickly pass microdosing territory. However, we’ve set out to solve that problem with a little help from the laboratory. Our new Wine Country Gummies feature our own rapid release technology that not only means they work quickly, but also allows the THC to absorb directly into your bloodstream, bypassing the digestive tract, so the dosage and effects stay consistent and regulated.
The Science of Microdosing
Recent research has supported the theory that microdosing cannabis can prove more effective than a moderate or large dose at reducing pain and anxiety, and treating PTSD. In a 2020 study, patients given just 1mg of THC experienced a “significant reduction in pain intensity,” with small doses taken every six hours it’s possible to maintain a low baseline of cannabinoids in your system without spending the day feeling “high.” According to industry microdosing experts, “the idea is to solicit therapeutic value with the least amount of cannabis possible,” which is typically 1 mg to 2.5 mg per dose when it comes to ingesting edibles and makes our Sparkling Strawberry Rosé Gummies the perfect edible to begin your microdosing routine.
Tasting the Rainbow
While many products use THC isolate, here at Garden Society we’ve opted for a whole plant approach utilizing full spectrum cannabis extract. This means that each of our edibles contain the full array of beneficial cannabinoids, terpenes, and other helpful compounds found within the cannabis flower. Our new Sparkling Strawberry Rosé Gummies are the perfect for microdosing because they are crafted specifically for that purpose. At 1mg of THC and 5mg of CBD per piece, it’s easy to control your THC intake without any guesswork. Simply open and enjoy one or two Gummies and you can achieve the calming and stress reducing benefits of microdosing without the “high” of higher dose, slowly digested edibles. Our new Wine Country Gummies enter your bloodstream quickly and take effect within minutes, while the calming and psychoactive buffering properties of CBD help relax stress during the day so you can stay upbeat, functional, and ready to tackle any challenge.
