Micro dosing

Microdosing with medical cannabis involves taking very small doses, sometimes multiple times each day, to achieve therapeutic benefits without significant psychoactive effects. Micro dosing can also reduce the risk of side effects.

How can micro dosing benefit patients?


Micro dosing can help patients manage symptoms such as chronic pain, anxiety, and insomnia (among many other health issues) with reduced risk of side effects like dizziness or impairment. It allows patients to find the minimal effective dose that works for their condition.


How do patients start micro dosing with medical cannabis?


To start micro dosing, consult your prescribing specialist. They will guide you on the appropriate dosage and frequency. Begin with a low dose, gradually increasing it until you find the optimal amount that alleviates your symptoms. This is known as titration.


Are there any side effects of micro dosing with medical cannabis?


Micro dosing typically reduces the risk of side effects, but some patients might still experience mild effects like dry mouth or slight drowsiness. It's important to monitor your response and adjust the dose according to your prescribing specialist's guidance.
