CBD dosing is an individual experience, as no universal quantity of CBD works for everyone. Figuring out the right dose takes a lot of time and patience, but despite the preferred dose, micro-dosing has undoubtedly added to the benefits of this unique compound. 

Cannabinoids are also like other supplements and drugs when we are finding the right dose. In fact, there is no right or wrong or one-size-fits-all CBD dose. It is conversely correlated to the level of endocannabinoids in the body. People with a higher level of endocannabinoids require much less CBD than others. 

What is Microdosing?

Microdosing is quite different from the mainstream phenomenon. The practice involves taking the drug/cannabinoid in tiny portions; each microdose is 1/10 or 1/20 of the single dose. It is about 10 to 20mg each time. The goal of microdosing is to reap the positive effects of the cannabinoid with minimized side effects. It helps improve energy level, focus, and emotional balance. 

Research on Microdosing

Unfortunately, there is very little clinical evidence on how microdosing could be beneficial for the body. However, current studies are focused on how high doses of cannabinoids like CBD and THC can be administered safely by breaking them down into small doses. However, even with such little research, we know that microdosing offers numerous benefits because people who microdose hemp derivatives tend to be more satisfied with the effect of the cannabinoids. 

A study conducted in 2005 shows that 1mg of THC every day can improve the inhibition of disease progression in animals suffering from heart atherosclerosis. It was concluded that microdosing could help in achieving results that cannot be actively felt with higher doses taken collectively. 


Benefits of CBD Microdosing

Microdosing CBD has been found to be quite helpful for a wide range of health issues, but it particularly helps with anxiety, mood, and pain. Try it now if you are also suffering from anxious thoughts, brain fog, and overthinking.

From biochemistry, we know that small amounts of these cannabinoids, like CBD and CBDa, are beneficial for activating the brain’s serotonin receptors. Serotonin is known as the ‘happiness hormone’ of the body, which prevails in the feeling of bliss, happiness, and well-being. An ample amount of serotonin in the blood can offer numerous health effects. CBD users claim to have:

  • More hope
  • Better focus
  • A brighter outlook
  • More stable mood
  • More stable energy
  • Reduced substance dependency


Three Ways to Microdose CBD

CBD microdosing is an effective and practical solution for those who are looking for the healthy effects of CBD. It can be done with any CBD consumption method, but three of the top delivery systems support micro-dosing.

Micro Dozing CBD Oil

CBD oil or tincture can be easily micro-dosed by following simple instructions. Calculate the total amount of CBD oil or tincture you want to use in a day and break it down into several small portions. Measure the calculated amount every time you are going to take your CBD oil. If the total amount of CBD tincture you want to consume in a day is 100 mg, you can break it down into 5 smaller doses of 20mg each. Remember to keep the tincture or oil under your tongue for a few minutes to let it absorb in the tiny capillaries directly into the bloodstream before fully ingesting the dose. 


Microdosing Hemp Flower

Keeping track of the dose while smoking hemp flowers is quite tricky but not impossible. Take out the total quantity of hemp flower you intend to smoke daily and figure out how many puffs it will make. Once you know this, divide the number of puffs over time and enjoy the long-lasting effects of CBD. 

Microdosing CBD Edibles

Microdosing CBD edible is the most accessible approach. You can easily cut your CBD-infused chocolate or brownie into equal size pieces and enjoy the treat throughout the day. However, remember that when you are taking edibles, some of the doses are lost in the metabolic process, so make sure to come up with an amount that will offer visible effects.
