THC Tincture Dosing Guide Helping Maintain Overall Wellness
CBD oil may be the cannabinoid capturing headlines and conquering social feeds, but THC is still necessary to unlock the true potential of cannabis.
THE ENDOCANNABINOIDS SYSTEM
All humans, and mammals, have an endocannabinoid system or ECS. This network consists of neurotransmitters called endocannabinoids, CB1 and CB2 receptors, and enzymes.
THC can directly bind with both receptors. This is why you feel an immediate mind and body high alter consuming cannabis products that have high levels of THC.
CBD works in a more indirect way. Scientists believe that CBD has an effect on both CB and CB through enzymes that control the production of endocannabinoids. Instead of directly binding with CB receptors, CBD helps create a steady flow of endocannabinoids that are able to affect CB1 and CB2.
Where THC is more of a sprint, CBD is a marathon. Consistent dosing is needed to feel the effects. With THC, the results are felt immediately. Understanding how THC and CBD works with the ECS is crucial in choosing the right tincture for your goals.
FINDING YOUR THC:CBD RATIO
The ratio is going to depend on what you want out of the cannabis. We suggest clearly asserting your goals for taking cannabis before making this decision. THC is going to deliver an almost instant high, where CBD will take much longer to feel the effects.
Many CBD products contain 0.3% THC to fall under the categorization of hemp. While these products will most likely give users better results than isolates (pure CBD) 0.3% may not be enough. Professionals with experience treating thousands of patients with medical cannabis like Dr. Dani Gordon, suggests high levels of CBD with 2-5% THC for optimal results.
The ratio depends solely on the user and what they want to accomplish. It may take a couple of different ratios to find that perfect mix of THC and CBD. Luckily, experimenting with different products can be done in a safe way.
TITRATION – FINDING YOUR DOSE
In the first week, take a quarter of the dropper (0.25ml).
Observe how you feel for the first week and raise the dose if you feel the need.
Increase the dosage to a half a dropper (0.5ml) during the second week and observe the results.
By now you should have a good idea of how the tincture makes you feel and what you can handle. Keep in mind that if you choose to take a high CBD tincture, the results still may not be in full effect at this point.
Increase the dosage to a full dropper (1ml) and beyond if you feel the need.
