CBD Oil: is microdosing the answer?

CBD Oil is one of the most popular CBD products around, and one of the most effective ways to consume the compound. Many could be tempted into taking a larger dose to feel stronger effects, but is that always the case?

Microdosing is a practice that can produce striking results when done correctly. This method can be applied to a range of different substances, including cannabis. Researchers have recently found that low doses of THC and CBD have a beneficial effect on chronic pain and stress relief, more so than CBD alone.

Studies reveal that microdosing in the right amount can produce better results than larger doses. How is this possible? Surely the larger the quantity the more powerful the effects ... or maybe not? Let's take a look at how microdosing actually works.

When did Cannabis microdosing start?

We are talking a lot about CBD Oil microdosing these days, but Cannabis Microdosing itself is not a new trend. In fact, it originally started with the medical marijuana movement.

Scientists wanted to better understand the impact of synthetic cannabinoids on the human endocannabinoid system, therefore they used different microdoses to see what effect they would produce.

One of the main questions is: what constitutes a microdose? Many agree that if you are taking a substance such as THC, which possesses psychoactive effects, and do not feel the "high" normally associated with it, then you are taking a microdose. Some scientists and researchers take a more systematic approach: they usually start with a minuscule dose, such as one milligram, and increase it in tiny portions, such as one milligram each, until they see the effects. As the first effects appear, they would call the dose the "minimal effective dosage".

Not only there are different opinions out there as to what a microdose is; the other issue is that everyone's body responds differently to cannabis. Trial and error is the way to go in this case, but this also means a huge sample size is necessary, and that's not always feasible.

How can a smaller dose be more effective?

What does a microdose do, exactly? From increased physical energy to enhanced mental focus and clarity, many benefits have been reported. Some also said microdoses helped them to sleep more easily.

How is it possible that microdosing is more effective than larger quantities alone? The answer is in the balance between the two main cannabinoids in Cannabis Sativa: CBD and THC.

CBD is notorious for inducing relaxing de-stressing effects, while THC is a psychoactive substance that makes you "high". The interaction between the two is key in producing results. In some areas of the brain, CBD appears to dampen the effects of THC and the other way round in other areas.

What is the best way of microdosing CBD Oil?

Sublingual application allows for greater control of microdosing as opposed to other methods, such as smoking, vaping, or eating cannabis products. When you put CBD oil drops under your tongue, the oil is absorbed through the mucous membranes of your mouth and reaches the bloodstream quickly. A precise application of CBD and THC will produce a precise response from your body.

Microdosing can take a bit of practice. As we said, there is no "one size fits all" formulation, but there are many resources to guide you through it. You have to try and see what works best for you. Although the sublingual application of CBD Oil is one of the most precise methods for absorption, you still cannot be 100% sure how much oil stays under your tongue vs how much goes down your throat. Try experimenting with a variety of CBD/THC percentages until you find the perfect balance for you.
