Because finding your perfect dose shouldn't be a chore.
We've all heard the horror stories about journalists lying in the fetal position on hotel room floors and too-stoned cops calling the cops on themselves. But before you jump to conclusions about cannabis-infused goodies, know there's a difference between pot-laced brownies of decades past and the low-dose godsends of cannabis's future.
What does it mean for an edible to be low-dose you ask? While personal tolerances can vary widely, in general, a dose of about 3 to 5mg of THC constitutes a low dose for most people. Below 3mg and you’re in microdose territory, which has its own unique benefits (like a gentle introduction to cannabis, for instance). But for our purposes, low doses of cannabis-infused goodies can be helpful for two primary reasons: safely gauging your tolerance and achieving an effective yet functional high. The closest and simplest analogy would probably be caffeine. Most people will barely feel a buzz from green tea, a mild spark from black tea, a noticeable lift from coffee, and a jetpack blast to the moon from a triple espresso. To know whether you should cut yourself off at one matcha latte or four iced coffees requires a little trial and error. Cannabis is no different.
