In the midst of a potency-obsessed market where high THC mean everything, there is a growing community of cannabis advocates that are pushing for less consumption as opposed to more. This tactic is called “microdosing,” a growing trend as cannabis consumption becomes more mainstream.
Dr. Sulak was interviewed for this article, Microdosing cannabis: benefits without the buzz. Dr. Sulak and other proponents of microdosing recommend ingesting small amounts of cannabis to gain the therapeutic benefits of THC without the effects that often interfere with everyday tasks.
According to Sulak, patients are now turning to microdosing in order to treat conditions such as depression, stress, anxiety, pain, and to help improve focus and promote sleep. While a substantial amount of empirical evidence is still lacking, there is some clinical research suggesting that less is in fact more when it comes to medicinal cannabis.
