Microdosing Cannabis – Frequently Asked Questions

When it comes to microdosing, it’s common to have questions. Lucky for you, we have answers!  Whether you’re seeking creative inspiration, stress relief, enhanced focus, or physical well-being, learning more about microdosing cannabis is a decision that can unlock a world of possibilities.


In short, microdosing cannabis involves consuming small, controlled amounts of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol), the two primary compounds found in cannabis. Unlike higher doses that may induce intoxication or impairment, microdosing is intended to harness the subtle effects of cannabis to enhance well-being and promote balance. We made it easy to leverage the benefits of microdosing with our Serenity Gummies and Calm Caps, two products that are precisely dosed for streamlined supplementation and maximum benefit.

FAQ 1: Will I feel “high” after consuming a microdose?


One of the most common questions about microdosing is whether you’ll feel high after taking a microdose. The answer is typically no. Microdosing involves consuming very small, sub-perceptual amounts of a substance, such as cannabis. The goal of microdosing is not to experience the psychoactive effects associated with higher doses but rather to reap the potential therapeutic benefits while minimizing any unwanted side effects.


By carefully controlling the dosage and frequency of consumption, individuals can experience subtle enhancements in mood, focus, creativity, and overall well-being without feeling “high” or impaired. Microdosing allows for a more nuanced and intentional approach to incorporating these substances into one’s wellness routine, offering a gentle and manageable way to explore their potential benefits (like stress relief and relaxation). 


FAQ 2: How can I get the most out of my microdose?


There are three things to keep in mind when thinking about getting the most out of your microdose: bioavailability, timing, and fat. Bioavailability is the ability of a supplement to be absorbed and used by the body. Various factors impact the level of bioavailability, and the overall rates of absorption differ from person to person. With this in mind, remember that your specific onset time and optimal dose may be different from your neighbor’s. Your body is your metric; listen and adjust accordingly.


Timing your supplementation appropriately will help with overall absorption, or bioavailability, of your gummies. As a general rule of thumb, ingest your gummies prior to (or at the start of) a meal. This will quicken the onset, while taking your gummies after a meal tends to delay the onset. You can expect to feel the effects of your gummies from the very first dose and onward. However, all of the supplements in our line work best with consistency. Just like sticking to a fitness routine, following a relief regimen with Serenity Gummies will maximize the brain and body benefits.


CBD is also lipophilic, meaning that it dissolves best in fat. Adding a moderate amount of high-quality fat to your meal (like, MCT Oil, Cod Liver Oil, or Clarified Ghee) will help break down the cannabinoid molecules and shuttle them into your bloodstream even faster. 


FAQ 3: What’s the right dose?


Good news: you can’t overdo it with our Serenity Gummies or Calm Caps. While our packaging suggests 1-2 gummies or 1 soft gel cap per dose, you can take an additional dose when you are experiencing higher stress levels or more intense feelings of unease. We call this the CURED break-through dose. Depending on what you’re experiencing in life at the moment, your brain and body may be asking for a breakthrough. These gummies will meet you wherever you’re at; feel reassured that you are free to adjust your dose accordingly. Check out our Serenity Microdosing Protocol here.


FAQ 4: Who benefits from microdosing?


Microdosing cannabis has the potential to benefit a wide range of individuals seeking natural support for various conditions. Those experiencing mild to moderate tension or stress may find relief and a sense of calm through microdosing. Additionally, individuals seeking to enhance creativity, focus, and productivity in their professional or artistic pursuits may find microdosing cannabis to be a valuable tool. Last but not least, individuals with chronic restlessness and sleep disturbances have also discovered gentle relief and improved quality of life through microdosing cannabis.


If you have questions about how microdosing fits into your unique well-being protocol, consult with a Functional Medicine Doctor or clinical herbalist (both of whom would be familiar with alternative approaches to medicine) about your individualized needs, preferences, and supplement doses.
