After cannabis became legalized in many states, people have started using it for recreational as well as medical purposes. When it comes to recreational use, the quantity and dosage all depend on the person and the form in which they are consuming marijuana. But when it comes to the medical usage say for relieving some pain and help to keep the mood right, the correct dosage definitely will be making all the difference. So today, we are going to share the dosage amounts of weed for different purposes.
The concentration of THC varies from one form of cannabis consumption to another like vape, edibles, flowers, concentrates, etc. Also, it is important to notice that different strains of flowers have different levels of THC. However, a 5mg dosage of THC is now considered to be the standard dosage. Here again, it is important to note that dosage doesn’t mean that it is the only standard amount available. For different people, the required dosage can vary which means that different concentration amounts will be made available for medical purposes.
Also, having a fixed dosage matter because then it makes it possible to study the effect of marijuana on the patient. This comes in handy, especially when the person is taking multiple medications and the effect of marijuana on them needs to be studied or if the working of marijuana with other drugs needs to be studied to determine the efficiency.
Now, if you are into taking edibles then the dosage changes. We are sharing the effect of a particular dosage and how that works out.
First-time consumers can start with 1-2.5 mg and enjoy mild relief of stress and pain. Also, it helps with focusing and creativity too.
For people facing sleeping problems, a dosage between 2.5 to 15 mg helps with stronger relief and also induces euphoria especially if you are a lightweight.
A dosage from 15 to 30 mg is technically for medicinal usage where it is given to patients with developed tolerance levels. This helps them with their various issues. Also, it is important to note that if you are consuming marijuana for medical purposes then over the time, the dosage keeps increasing as the body gets accustomed to the dosage and so the effect is left.
30 to 50 mg can really mess you up unless you are a seasoned player.
