Many people who may benefit from cannabis are hesitant to use it because they are worried about “getting high.”
The good news is that just a little bit of THC is required to generate substantial therapeutic benefits. Dr. Sulak advocates “microdosing,” a method of administering medical cannabis in extremely small dosages, which can produce therapeutic advantages without the high.
The concept is pretty simple:
- What constitutes a microdose varies from person to person, depending on physiology, cannabis product type, and a variety of other factors.
- A tincture or oil is the most effective approach for achieving extremely precise dosage, down to the tiniest increments.
- Patients should begin with a dosage that has no effect and progressively increase it until they see a noticeable favorable impact.
