be more focused. For those who have used a variety of conventional medications to treat health issues, but avoided cannabis due to perceived side effects the notion of microdosing may prove to be a more suitable method of delivery. “Finding your sweet spot will take time, patience, and practice.” says Wilder. Potential microdosers are encouraged to learn as much about cannabis as possible and also to continue to develop self-awareness. It may be helpful to keep a journal and note mood, sleep habits, tolerance levels for reference purposes. Our personal chemistries are different and what benefits one person as far as amount, strain, and method of delivery may not work for another. A system of microdosing is designed to avoid obvious euphoria and unwelcome reactions while recognizing the benefits of lower doses of cannabis. Wilder goes on to say, “The most popular delivery methods are smoking, vaping, and ingesting cannabis. All have their own advantages and disadvantages, but oftentimes you can design a regimen that’s right for you by incorporating all three.” In its early stages, microdosing will create a slight sensation without paranoia. Depending on the par-

ticular strain, a client may feel more enthusiastic and relaxed. Some users report improved emotional equilibrium and improved periods of creativity. For newcomers to microdosing it is always important to remember the common caveats when taking any medications. Wilder suggests the following: Avoid mixing cannabis and alcohol until you are experienced with both. It’s important to pay attention to the potency of your cannabis. Use strains high in CBD and low in THC to experience CBD’s relaxing benefits. Blending cannabis with natural tobacco alternatives can create therapeutic combinations. Metabolism and physiology can affect your experience. Patience. Finding what works for you may take some time and experimentation.
