Perhaps you’ve heard people talk about microdosing but you aren’t exactly sure what it means or if it would be beneficial for you. Read on to get your questions answered!
Microdosing – what is it?
Microdosing is a dosage regimen that involves you taking mini-doses throughout the day. Let’s say for example that you typically consume 40mg per day, you would instead take 4 micro-doses of 10mg each throughout the day, such as in the morning, at lunchtime, in the middle of the afternoon, and right before you head to bed.
With this method your eventual daily dose doesn’t actually change because you are still consuming 40mg into your body by the end of the day but the difference with this method is in how you will feel.
Benefits of microdosing
Microdosing allows you to spread the therapeutic effects throughout the entire day. This is because you can feel the benefits of the active ingredient in our tinctures the most within the first 4 hours after consumption.
When you microdose rather than take one single dose, your body will tend to maintain consistent levels of endocannabinoids, enabling you to enjoy its health and therapeutic benefits throughout the day.
The quickest way to absorb the benefits of our tinctures is by holding the oil under your tongue for 30 seconds. This way, our active ingredient is absorbed into your bloodstream through the mucus membranes in your mouth.
Conditions best treated by microdosing
The active hemp ingredient in our tinctures can relieve a wide array of conditions by connecting with our endocannabinoid system. This major signaling network works with other systems in our body (immune, digestion, ect) to regulate many processes such as metabolism, immune response, hormonal balance, sleep, heart rate, mood, pain sensation, appetite, and more!
If you’re dealing with a severe condition, such as anxiety, arthritis, chronic pain, migraines, nausea, or insomnia, microdosing might be a good way for you to relieve your symptoms throughout the day.
One size doesn’t fit all
Since all of our body’s are different, what works for one might not work for another. So while microdosing might work great for your friend dealing with a similar issue, your body might need the dose all at once. Figuring out your personal ideal microdose requires a little bit of self-experimentation. If you’re curious to try microdosing you should do so but keep a note of how you are feeling to know if this dosing method is right for you!
