A Guide to Dosing Marijuana
Finding an adequate balance in marijuana use.
Every person has a unique response to marijuana and to the different forms in which it can be consumed. Because these responses can vary, finding the right dosage can be challenging. Learn about best dosing practices, finding the best medicinal product type, and incrementally adjusting dosage below.
Patients are initially recommended to follow a conservative dosing strategy to find their ideal dosage. This strategy works by increasing the dose in small increments over time to find the most effective dose with the least side effects.
Every patient responds differently to marijuana consumption, so start low and go slow. Although this style of dosing may take some time to find desired effects, it allows new patients to build a tolerance and ease into any of the psychoactive effects that may occur.
How this strategy works…
Consume the recommended dose amount. Recommendations can be found below.
Wait to evaluate the effects. Onset for each medicinal product can vary. Individual effects also vary.
Redose if the effects were not satisfactory. Repeat process until desired effects are achieved.
The marijuana product you’re interested in consuming will play a large role in determining how to approach dosing, as seen below.
