I received some encouragement on here to journal my cannabis use. Just curious what kind of details I should be tracking? I know the strain and how much I use, but are there any other details I should be keeping track of?

    How you feel, tastes, affects (positive and negative) I.e red eyes, dry mouth, paranoia etc. This will help you track how you react to certain strains!

    You could even track where you got it from and for what price, if you really want to keep track of things for future usages! ✌

Happy Friday everyone! I'm in the market for a new "stash jar". Looking for recommendations. What do you use to store your cannabis and keep it fresh?

Questions of the day: Are the new legalized storefronts working? Due to the crazy lineups and wait times, does this make consumers want to purchase from the legal market, or the black market? Maybe more stores are needed....quickly!

7pipe Glass Blunt (via TheHotCase) Review

Since it first appeared in JADEO's Holiday Gift Guide, I've been extremely intrigued by the Glass Blunt as a cannabis accessory. From the videos and the reviews it seemed like a product that was easy to use and did exactly what it was meant to do.

So when The Hot Case offered JADEO members a discount code for their online store I hopped on the opportunity to purchase a glass blunt at a discounted price. They also offer it in cool colours like gold and rose gold. I opted for the rose gold. My order arrived in less than a week which was great because you can't imagine my excitement, lol.

The glass blunt comes with a cleaning tool, replacement pieces, and an instruction guide. The instructions were extremely straight forward so I was able to get up and running within minutes. You grind your cannabis, remove the "corkscrew" from the tube. Seal the tube on one end with the rubber cover. Scoop your cannabis into the tube. Insert the "corkscrew" in a counter clockwise motion until it's all packed in there.

Then you light the blunt and voila! I love the glass blunt because I'm not the best roller. This allows me pack up to 2grams into one blunt, and you can seal the blunt and use again later for another session if you don't use it all. It's also a great size that makes it easy to travel with. As far as actually using it -the mouthpiece makes it easy to inhale and you get a nice strong pull. The unit is easy to clean. I suppose my only wish was that it was just a tad bit easier to ash your blunt. Other than that, I love it and highly recommend it.

Looking for a fun AND cannabis-friendly spot to grab a coffee in Toronto? I stopped by Cannabis & Coffee on Front St today. They are not a dispensary, but you can smoke or vape outside and they have a really cool vibe inside. Their menu features your typical espresso beverages PLUS a huge selection of cereal imported from the US. Nobody batted an eyelash as we discussed cannabis (unlike my past experiences at other coffee shops...).

Should parents lock up their pot? Probably, lawyers warn

Global News

For many years, curious teens have been raiding their parents' liquor cabinets, with results ranging from benign to embarrassing to dangerous. With legal cannabis certainly more available and arguably more respectable than it was when it was illegal, parents who indulge need to put some thought into keeping it away from curious children and teens, lawyers say.

    Absolutely cannabis should be securely stored if you have kids in the home. We keep our cannabis out of reach of our son, and on top of that in a childproof case so he couldn't even open it if he tried. Safety is extremely.

  • From Brianne Campbell

    Yes! It’s so easy to find child-proof bags and cases. It only makes sense!

  • From Lindsay Le Blanc

    Is it Brianne? I've been wondering lately what makes a bag or case child-proof... Are they using zipper locks?

The Best Books For Cooking With Cannabis

Have you ever wanted to learn more about infusing foods but feel that it’s best left for experts? Well, let’s debunk that belief because the truth is it’s easy to do at home as long as you have proper instructions on infusing and dosing and perfected recipes to follow. In the spirit of D-I-Y as we wait on legislation to allow edibles in Canada, we rounded up a few of the best books out there on how to incorporate cannabis into your menu to cook for yourself or enhance your next dinner party.

Edibles: Small Bites for the Modern Cannabis Kitchen

By Stephanie Hua with Coreen Carroll

Edibles: Small Bites for the Modern Cannabis Kitchen

In this collection of 30 recipes, Stephanie Hua, the founder of gourmet cannabis-infused marshmallows brand Mellows, and executive chef Coreen Carroll the authors focused on collaborated on low-dose recipes. In addition to the recipes, the cookbook includes information about the endocannabinoid system, cannabinoids beyond just THC and CBD and sheds some light on terpenes like myrcene, linalool and limonene.

Edibles: Small Bites for the Modern Cannabis Kitchen

It also offers the low down on calculating dosage, how to activate cannabis through a method called decarboxylation and some tips and techniques while making your own infusions in the kitchen.

Readers will find a combination of sweet and savory recipes like fried mac and cheese bites, corn dog muffins and duck meatball sliders to black sesame and raspberry cupcakes, blueberry lemon macarons and cardamom caramels. Whether you’re a beginner or a pro in the kitchen, there’s a dish designed to fit every skill level.

Bong Appetit: Mastering the Art of Cooking with Weed

From the Editors of MUNCHIES

Bong Appetit: Mastering the Art of Cooking with Weed

The second cookbook from MUNCHIES is touted as “the Joy of Cooking for a new generation interested in making serious, sophisticated food--with weed.” High-end culinary dishes infused with all forms of cannabis grace the pages of this book, with a title derived from its namesake the Viceland show.

Bong Appétit Crew

In 65 featured recipes, you will find everything from desserts to entrees to cocktails. You’ll learn how to infuse everything from butter and oils to alcohol and milk with recipes ranging from weed butter-basted chicken to weed chimichurri to weed brownie sundaes. The book discusses pairing strains and flavors and even gets into marijuana politics. 💪

The Art of Weed Butter: A Step-By-Step Guide to Becoming a Cannabutter Master

By Mennlay Golokeh Aggrey

The Art of Weed Butter: A Step-By-Step Guide to Becoming a Cannabutter Master

If you think every cannabis cookbook is the same, think again. A recent release from Ulycees Press is a beautiful book on the art of infusion by Mennlay Golokeh Aggrey (@mennlay). A resident of Mexico City with West African heritage, her recipes reflect her roots and her chosen home: “fried plantains, Philly jalapeño crema, esquites (Mexican street corn) and her mother’s signature West African fried chicken all grace the pages of this cookbook. But her book has a little something for everyone — including vegans.”

Part memoir, part advocacy, part education, the book is very candid, like when the author demonstrates her love and appreciation for cannabis by referring to it as her “her first boyfriend.” The way she writes shows readers she has a deep appreciation not only for the power of food to nourish and heal but also for how it can bridge connections between people and across cultures.

The Art of Weed Butter

A review in Cannabis Now touched on the socio-political importance of Aggrey’s contribution:

“The work itself is alignment with her passion for inclusivity in the cannabis industry, where so few black women break through into leadership roles. It’s imperative that more voices are added into the cannabis conversation, so the fact that this book is written by a black woman and features images of her brown hands making magic in the kitchen with cannabis is more important than many people may realize. She joins the ranks of other black women, like Andrea Drummer and Cedella Marley, who have also created their own collection of recipes infused with cannabis.”

While working with canna-butter or other infused fats, she does a great job to share her craft and explains “you can’t just sprinkle your stash onto a recipe, as creating truly great weed butter is an art.” Packed with helpful step-by-step instructions, this book shows how to make the perfect canna-butter for any edible and every application, “from reducing stress and battling pain to helping with PTSD and overcoming night terrors.”

Sweet Tooth: Edibles In Focus

Cookies, colas, gummies, smores; cannabis edibles can be found in a wide range of consumer packaged goods in legal states or through the black market, but what is the forecast for legal edibles in Canada? Under the Cannabis Act, edibles will become legal in the marketplace "no later than" October 17, 2019. With cannabis-infused foods, sublingual strips, candies and other types of THC treats coming available in the legal space, JADEO took a quick look at what the very near future may hold.

If you follow cannabis news, you’ve probably heard about numerous partnerships between beverage companies and Canadian LPs looking to get into the cannabis drinks industry. For example, AB InBev, one of the world’s largest brewers, is partnering with cannabis producer Tilray Inc. to research the production of THC and CBD-infused non-alcoholic beverages, while Canopy Rivers has teamed up with Greenhouse Juice to do the same. A joint venture between Molson Coors Canada and the Quebec-based cannabis producer HEXO Corp. called Truss, plans to release weed-infused beer.

While some may be weary of eating THC, others prefer the method of delivery over smoking or vaping. “Edible cannabis is not only a great option for those people who do not want to inhale,” says Laura Mastroprieto of Pot of Wellness, “but one of the benefits of eating cannabis is that the effects can last 4 to 10 times longer than when inhaled.”

Many cannabis lovers prefer edibles to smoking, which translates to a 4.1 billion dollar industry between Canada and the U.S. by 2022. With this anticipated consumer demand for food-based edibles, Canadian companies have long been working on developing products. Looking at existing markets in California and Colorado, we see a robust offering with many brands competing for the purse of the consumer. Canadian LPs are still not clear on how the regulatory framework will set the conditions for their product releases but that isn’t stopping them from developing products that will be ready to roll out sometime this year. Canopy recently told Bloomberg news that they’ve been gearing up to release a wide range of cannabis-infused edibles including non-caffeinated chocolate.

THC Chocolate is just one of the many types of edibles, and yet within that category we see a vast range of variations. For example, Defonce Chocolatiers are experts and artisans in chocolate making and cannabis dosing based in California. They're niche in using high-quality sustainable ingredients like milk chocolate with cracked espresso beans; white chocolate with matcha green tea; or dark chocolate with hazelnut and caramel. The California-based company is also dedicated to using only sustainable and responsibly sourced ingredients.

Meanwhile, here in Canada, our artisanal edibles producers are facing challenging stipulations to be able to get their creations to market. In essence, their businesses are on hold. One company, called The Baker's Shop, told VICEmagazine that while they wait for new legislation, they are focusing on areas like “child-proof packaging, locations to set up a kitchen, food safety standards, and dosage.”

One of the bigger issues that has come up with edibles is accurate dosing information, so they have sent in their product to be tested by labs.

Dosing is reasonably a great concern and perhaps the biggest consideration in determining the forthcoming regulations. Professionals in the cannabis industry have been stirring up debate on this topic on Twitter, with arguments surrounding low THC limits on food and drink products, which are meant to cut down on accidental overdoses. Experts say some of the rules are overly restrictive, and risk not making enough of an impact on the black market. Deepak Anand, industry consultant, told VICE that the proposed 10 mg limit is going to amount to wasteful packaging “for many users who want way above that dose to give them the desired effect.”

The government has been seeking ideas and recommendations in regards to how much THC should be allowed in any product, how to control the quality of edibles, and rules surrounding the packaging and labeling of products that have proven nearly indistinguishable from those marketed toward kids in the past. For now, as we wait for edibles to become legal, products like the Levo Oil maker or Magic Butter machine are designed to give consumers a very easy way to make cannabis edibles at home. Have a great DIY edibles recipe to share? We invite you to post it on JADEO and share with the community.

TheHotCase - A Product Review

Written by: Brianne Campbell


TheHotCase claims that their cases are not only OPP compliant, but also waterproof, smell-proof, and indestructible - so we decided to put these handy cases to the test! (Before we begin, JADEO members get 15% off TheHotCase with the promo code HotJadeo)

I have spent the past week carrying the medium slim case. This discreet box has a practical outdoorsy vibe to it. At first, I was thinking I would prefer it in a different colour, but this sturdy black case has grown on me. The fact that the case is black is exactly what makes it so very discreet. After carrying the medium slim TheHotCase in my gym bag for the past week, nobody has asked me what it is or picked up on the smell of cannabis locked inside!

TheHotCase Medium Slim
TheHotCase Medium Slim - $30

I’ve been using TheHotCase to carry around rolled spliffs and a crystal pipe. At 11.9 cm long, 7.4 cm wide, and 4.5 cm tall, the medium slim case is the perfect size for my stash. I have carried a small pipe, a gram of dried flower, rolling papers, a lighter, and a couple of joints, and eyedrops inside it all at once. Because these cases are OPP compliant for transporting cannabis in a vehicle, I can finally bring a joint on the go without having to throw my whole purse in my trunk! I used to be very nervous driving with any cannabis in my car, but this case has given me peace of mind.

I am loving the fact that this case is super lightweight, yet so durable. At only $30 for the medium slim size, these cases are also great value for what you get! There is no logo or branding on TheHotCase products, so these cases are super discreet. As an athlete, I can totally see myself using the medium slim case for items other than cannabis and accessories. I can put my phone and car keys inside it when I’m training. Plus the convenient strap means it’s easy to carry if you have your hands full.

TheHotCase Medium Slim
TheHotCase Medium Slim - Inside:11.9 x 7.4 x 4.5 cm

The inside of the case is also soft, so even if you don’t have the foam in, you won’t need to worry about the contents getting damaged bouncing around. The foam insert that comes with every TheHotCase is a total game changer though! I don’t have to worry about my pre-rolls getting crushed in my purse and I can actually bring my cute pipe out of my house without worrying about breaking it.

These cases are a little difficult to open if you have nails of any sort (like me). They also only come in only one colour so far. I can see the handle possibly wearing out with heavy use, but that can easily be swapped out for a more durable handle or a thin carabineer clip.

This product would make a lot of sense for any cannabis consumer that is looking for a solution to legally carry cannabis inside their vehicle, pack breakable accessories for travelling or shipping, or simply keep their stash out of the hands of children.

What I LOVE about these cases is that you can use your own lock. That means you can use a lock and key, or a combination lock. Many storage cases come with their own lock system (usually a combination lock), so this is a big plus for me! I can be forgetful with combination numbers so I like that I have the option to choose my own lock.

Some alternatives to these cases would be Pelican’s small cases or OtterBox’s waterproof Drybox. While Pelican seems to offer similar products in terms of durability, I wouldn’t use them for carrying cannabis as Pelican’s smaller cases have clear plastic sides. OtterBox’s Drybox is not lockable, so they wouldn’t be truly childproof to hide your stash.

All in all, I really like TheHotCase in the medium slim size and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a safe, portable solution for storing cannabis and accessories.

The Pros:

  • Durable
  • Lightweight
  • Discreet (no branding)
  • Multipurpose
  • Lockable
  • Padded interior
  • Smell-proof
  • Child-proof
  • Can legally bring cannabis in my car -available in many different sizes

The Cons:

  • Difficult to open
  • Only comes in black (so far)

TheHotCase has gerously offered JADEO members a 15% discount on all cases. Check out TheHotCase Shop and use the promo code HotJadeo for 15% off!


JADEO does not accept compensation for product reviews. All reviews are from products sent free of charge, or purchased by JADEO staff, and with no incentive to offer a favourable review. This is to offer JADEO members an objective review, so you can make an informed decision before buying.

    The case looks really interesting and multifunctional. Carrying stuff around can be stressful so something that can keep the odors in and the stuff out of sight is more than welcome.

    Love this, this would be perfect for my hubby who's on the road quite often. Love the fact that its OPP compliant.

Cannabis has been a long time enjoyed accompaniment to sensuality and connection. Our team has been sussing out the best valentines gifts in the cannabis space exclusively for JADEO readers. Read on to discover our top 5 Valentines Gifts to enhance this year’s celebration of love.

GET HIP IN THE KITCHEN

Do It Yourself Cannabis Edibles Box - $17.17

Do It Yourself Cannabis Edibles Box

It’s a tricky time for edibles in advance of legalization, but while we wait for the legal framework to open up the market, we can still enjoy cannabis edibles if we create them ourselves.

This Do it Yourself Cannabis Edibles Box is a gift you may have never dreamed existed but could be the perfect fit for that special someone who loves to get creative in the kitchen or is passionate about edibles. Each box contains cooking instructions, dosing recommendations, cooking utensils, ingredients, and THC/CBD extraction supplies necessary for cooking homemade vegan and gluten-free edibles.

The recipes you receive are meant to make cooking with cannabis “as easy as buttering bread.” Mmm! The box includes everything you need to get started, just add the recommended amount of legally purchased dried Cannabis to the recipe.

MOVE OVER BLUEBERRY CHEESECAKE

Body Oil from The Great Canadian Hemp Company (aka organic sex lube) - $54

Great Canadian Hemp Company Balance Body Oil

Balance body oil blend is a sweet almond and apricot kernel oil combined with organic essential oils that are uniquely blended for their skin invigorating properties, as well as their aromatherapeutic benefits. The oils in the combination have a calming effect and promote stillness, creativity, and emotional balance which can accompany lovemaking or self-pleasure within a base of oils which are suited as organic sex lube as well.

We liked hearing the personal testimonial from The Great Canadian Hemp Company’s Co-founder Melissa L’Heureux-Hache: “I can't express how much I love this body oil. It comes with me everywhere! Most oils make you feel greasy, but this one absorbs really quickly and you only need to use a little. It also smells like heaven :)”

She went on to explain how although it isn’t specifically marketed for use in the bedroom it is perfectly suited for sex and superior to other, synthetic lubes on the market: “Maybe it’s just me, but conventional lubes are unappealing - they don’t have a natural texture and most are based with synthetic chemicals that I don’t want on my body, let alone in my body. The last thing I’d want would be to taste synthetic blueberry cheesecake while making love with my partner!”

SEX UP ALL THE DETAILS

Sexpot by Nox X Allume - $65

Sexpot by Nox & Allume

Nox shop is an online sex toy shop who has teamed up with female-founded, Montreal-based cannabis accessory online shop Allume. The two brands teamed up for a special 'Sexpot' edition of Allume’s monthly Chill Box for February.

CHEER UP YOUR TUB

Their shop has released a special Valentine’s section with a collection of herbal bath bombs to enhance pleasure in our self-care rituals or shared bath experiences;)

We chose the sativa bomb, which was designed to be the perfect morning bomb. The term "sativa" comes from 4,000-year-old Sanskrit terms meaning "daytime" and "nighttime." Handcrafted with organic, lab-tested plant extract and sage, peppermint, and eucalyptus essential oils, the invigorating oils partner with sea salt to reduce stress and increase blood circulation in the body.

Please not all prices are quoted in Canadian dollars.

My Blue Dream

I by no means consider myself I canna-connoisseur I'm experimenting like any other canna-curious individual out there. However, the one piece of advice that I have taken to heart is to explore the various strains and the effect they have on me personally (as strains can affect each individual differently).

Thus far, I've had the pleasure of trying out "Girl Scout Cookies", "Sour Diesel", and most recently "Blue Dream"

Every strain has its time and place, but I have to admit that "Blue Dream" has been my favourite thus far. Blue Dream is said to be a Sativa dominant hybrid. After vaping it I experienced an unreal amount of focus for a few hours. I was focused in a way I have rarely experienced in my life...LASER FOCUS. I also found it really got my creative juices flowing. I am admittedly a natural creative, but again it had me in this zone of extreme creativity that I rarely experience. Overall, I felt relaxed, calm and extremely productive.

To be fair, I'll also share a quick review of my experience with other two strains mentioned earlier. Sour Diesel (a sativa) I would say is my second favourite. It made me feel relaxed yet, energized at the same time and was an overall good feeling.I found it was great for daytime use when I need to be alert. While Girl Scout Cookie (Indica dominant Hybrid) left me feeling quite relaxed, and often made me sleepy. I generally would use this shortly before bed.

What strains have you used? How did they make you feel?

    Blue Dream is actually one of the only strains I trust. I use the word trust because the way it makes me feel is consistent. I know that I will feel motivated, in the zone, and ready to get stuff done!!! Thanks for sharing Janelle :)

  • From Lindsay Le Blanc

    I love deconstructing strain names to consider their origins - my favourite indica is blueberry which is one of the parents of blue dream:)

  • From Kenneth Joaquin

    Recently, I used Buddha Haze. Probably not a strain I would go back to, as it made me feel like time was moving very slowly. I felt like I could think faster than my body could act--kind of a trance. I will definitely give Blue Dream a try to experience something similar to yours!

The Challenge of Accurate Dosing in THC and CBD

A great SPONSORED post by XANTHIC BIOPHARMA we found on http://www.visualcapitalist.co. We love the simplicity of this. The industry as a whole has a great deal of education to provide on why dosages are so individual, and that what works for one, may not work for another. (tm)

Lack of Communication about Medical Marijuana Use between Doctors and Their Patients

Introduction: Medical marijuana is now permitted in most states, but it is not clear whether primary care physicians (PCPs) are aware of or recommend its use in their patients.

Methods: We distributed paired surveys to PCPs and their patients to assess the frequency of patient marijuana use and communication with PCPs about use.

Results: Of 242 patients surveyed, 22% reported marijuana use in the past 6 months, and 61% of these identified as medical marijuana users. PCPs did not complete state forms to recommend medical marijuana for any of the surveyed medical marijuana users. PCPs were aware of marijuana use in their patients only 53% of the time. PCPs identified conditions they believed could be adversely affected by marijuana use in 31% of users.

Conclusion: There is poor communication between patients and PCPs about medical marijuana use, which is being sanctioned by physicians other than patients' PCPs. We suggest more frequent assessment of and discussion about marijuana use in patients, particularly in states that have approved medical marijuana.

The Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS) Warns Customers of Canada Post Data Breach

In a letter sent to customers, The Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS) acknowledges that they were made aware of a data breach by Canada Post on November 1st.

About 2% of orders had their information accessed by an individual. Information accessed includes postal codes, the name or initials of the person who signed for the order upon delivery, the date of delivery, the OCS reference number and the Canada Post tracking number.

The delivery address, payment information and contents of the order were not accessed, the OCS said.

“Since November 1, the OCS has worked closely with Canada Post to identify the cause of this issue and to prevent any further unauthorized access to customer delivery information,” CEO Patrick Ford said in the letter.

In a statement released to CityNews, Canada Post acknowledged the breach, saying “both organizations have been working closely together since that time to investigate and take immediate action.

“As a result, important fixes have been put in place by both organizations to prevent any further unauthorized access to customer information.

“We have also shared with OCS that we are confident that the customer who accessed the information only shared it with Canada Post and deleted it without distributing further.”

This breach affects approximately 4500 customers and deals another hard blow to the Ontario Cannabis Store which has been riddled with stock and fulfillment issues since day one.

Microdosing: The Benefits, The Risks and How it Works

Written by Janelle Powell


Generally, when you hear about the cannabis industry, a lot of the discussion circles around recreational use and getting high. Yet, there is a whole other side to cannabis use that excludes the high that's becoming a growing trend. This is where microdosing comes in.

What is Microdosing and How Does it Work?

Microdosing is based on the concept of using the most minimal amount of THC, the psychoactive compound found in cannabis, to reap the medical benefits of cannabis. The concept of microdosing is the idea that less is most definitely more. Low doses can deliver one effect while high doses can bring upon the opposite effect. Using smaller doses of THC allows the body to enjoy the amazing health benefits of cannabis without the effect of getting high.

The concept of microdosing is not a new one, this practice has become more widespread in the 21st century. Microdosing gained traction a few years ago with the drug LSD. Psychedelic microdosing is a practice to use sub-threshold doses of psychedelic drugs in an attempt to improve creativity and focus, boost energy level, attain emotional balance and to help with depression and addiction. The long-term effects of dosing LSD came under fire and is surrounded by controversy as it is illegal and can be dangerous.

For cannabis however, the sub-therapeutic microdose is unlikely to produce whole-body effects, but rather effects the body on a cellular level. Although microdosing is most commonly associated with THC, addition of CBD in equal ratio can be beneficial and the combination tends to give a wider therapeutic window. CBD can also be used solely, however it is more expensive than THC products and should be avoided during the evening as it can act as a mental stimulant.

What are the Benefits of Microdosing?

The cannabis microdosing method can help increase mental focus, improve creativity, aid in sleeping habits and elevate mood. Additionally, due to the medical benefits gained through controlled consumption, it is being used to treat many conditions such as:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Pain associated with chronic conditions like fibromyalgia and multiple sclerosis
  • Inflammation
  • Gastrointestinal disturbances
  • Insomnia
  • ADHD (Attention Deficit and Hyperactive Disorder)
  • PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

What Method Should I Use?

There are various methods of microdosing. The most popular is smoking, but it has been found to be the most expensive with the least control over dosage unless it's vapour. Vaping allows microdosing accuracy, is less wasteful as it extracts cannabis compounds more efficiently and is a cleaner experience because it doesn't contain the harmful carcinogens of smoking. Edibles are also common but caution should be exercised as dosage ranges between products, and intensity and onset of effects may vary between individuals. Oils and tinctures are also an alternative to smoking and are becoming increasingly popular.

How Much Should I Microdose?

There is no universal way or standard amount to microdose. However, there are many arguments about what the right dose is. While some will say 5-10mg of THC, others recommend an even lower dose at 2.5mg. There are also some products on the market that are CBD dominant so they contain very little or no THC at all. The reality is microdosing is extremely personal, as each individual can respond uniquely to dose amounts of THC and/or CBD for a variety of factors.

“The goal is to use the dose that gives the most minimal noticeable effect,”

says Dustin Sulak osteopathic physician who uses low-dose cannabis treatments for his patients. The main takeaway here is that with microdosing slow and steady definitely wins the race. Start small and work your way up.

The Risks of Microdosing

While microdosing is a great concept, it does have its risks particularly with the use of edibles. Some brands don't offer edibles with smaller doses of THC or don't provide detailed labeling that lists the volume of THC per portion size, which can make it difficult to estimate potency per bite, especially for microdosing.

There is, however a huge trend growing for cannabis microdosing and products are emerging that offer an accurate microdose of THC and/or CBD. From 2.5mg of THC per serving to 5mg and 10mg, cannabis infused products are appearing in legal places around North America. These products include mints, gummies, teas, oils, tinctures, honey sticks, granola squares and even bite-sized chocolates.

Another drawback of microdosing with edibles is the delayed reaction to the THC. Many users will assume that the dose wasn’t strong enough because they can’t immediately feel any effect. As a result, they increase the dose, which leads to accidentally taking too large of a dose when in actual fact the original dose was enough. Be sure to stick to the dose recommended by your physician.

Trends and Takeaways

While microdosing has made substantial headway in the arena of health as a treatment option for specific conditions, it also serves another purpose outside of its medicinal benefits. Many have turned to microdosing for professional and personal reasons. Small doses of THC is believed to increase creativity and mental focus so many use it as a way to be increasingly productive at work and for overall wellness, without the risk of the stigma associated with cannabis and being high.

The takeaway here is that microdosing is intended to be a safe and healthy way to reap the physical and mental benefits that cannabis has to offer. Proponents of microdosing hope that one day it will become so normalized it will be viewed in a similar manner as taking daily multivitamins. As always, if contemplating using cannabis as a medical treatment please consult with a doctor to determine if it is the right path for you.

Remember to always consult your doctor before beginning any type of wellness treatment.
