Whether you're ready to give marijuana a first try or you've been treating yourself with cannabis for some time, you may want to consider giving the practice known as microdosing a chance. It's a great way to experience cannabis on your terms without any fear of an anxiety attack or freak out, as we will explore here.

Microdosing is the practice of administering tiny, measured amounts of marijuana, or any medicine, in increasing levels with the aim to obtain desired results without any side effects. A growing trend in the cannabis industry, the idea of finding the smallest effective dose already has a rich history of use in pharmaceutical research and development of drugs.

You may find this method of particular interest if you are new to using cannabis or you're looking for a treatment method for chronic symptoms. This is because using smaller doses reduces unwanted side effects like a racing heart, paranoia, tiredness, or anxiety, and allows users to function normally. You will also find it will allow you to function at work and unencumbered in social situations.

Edibles are great for microdosing if you've never experienced cannabis or don't know your tolerance level, and that's important because your tolerance level is unique and fluctuates. You'll find today's marijuana edibles are gourmet treats and delicious drinks, portioned to very small doses that are typically between 5-10 milligrams of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), marijuana's psychoactive compound.

Smoking small amounts of cannabis, even just one puff, or taking a drop of cannabis oil at intervals throughout the day is becoming a popular technique for those who want to reap the medical benefits of marijuana without experiencing the psychedelic effects. However, even exact microdosing is difficult to gauge since tolerance levels vary among consumers.

If you're a cannabis connoisseur it can help you save money, in a round-about way, by reducing your tolerance level. Since your body can only process a certain amount of marijuana in a given amount of time, it helps ensure you don't consume more than your body can handle, and thus not waste any weed. Microdosing takes all the guesswork out of how much marijuana you need throughout the day to achieve a certain effect, while leaving you the option to increase or decrease at will.
