Believe it or not, using cannabis isn’t all about getting the product with the highest THC. Next time you visit your local Las Vegas dispensary, talk to your budtender about how you can benefit from microdosing.
What is Microdosing?
Microdosing is simply ingesting very small amounts of cannabis. Usually, minimal effects will be felt. Microdosing began as a way to study the effects of drugs, most commonly LSD, on humans without producing a full-body effect. Through the research, cannabis lovers discovered that it can also be a great way to experience the benefits that cannabis offers the body even during situations when they don’t want to feel the high.
Some conditions that are treated with cannabis aren’t best approached by filling the body with THC. For example, many patients visit their marijuana dispensary looking for relief from anxiety. Cannabis can be very beneficial for them; however, too much THC can actually increase anxiety. A study published in The Journal of Pain treated patients in need of pain relief with three different dose sizes of a THC/CBD compound. The results showed that patients given the lowest dose felt the least pain, while patients given the highest dose experienced the most pain.
Benefits of Microdosing
One of the main symptoms patients visiting our Las Vegas dispensary are looking to relieve is pain. Small doses of cannabis activate the body’s endocannabinoid system. Once activated, the system works to relieve pain, protect damaged cells, and improve muscle control.
Cannabis is an incredibly effective treatment for nausea. In contrast to prescribed nausea medication, cannabis offers instant relief and doesn’t require swallowing and “keeping down” any pills. A microdose can immediately relieve nausea without inducing strong cerebral effects.
These are only a couple of the many benefits of microdosing. If you are wondering if it could improve your daily life visit Planet 13 and let our Las Vegas dispensary explore the options with you.
