Of all the cannabis products available in today’s legal market, there’s bound to be something for everyone! 

However, when it comes to the plethora of cannabis options available, finding the right dose to fit your desired cannabis experience can be challenging. 

Whether you’re looking to try a new product on the market or looking to hone in on the dosage of your favorite flower or edible, consider this crucial cannabis information to help guide you to finding the right dose. 


Start Slow & Low 

Firstly, just like many other factors of life, every person is composed of their own unique internal physiologic functions. 

With that said, there is a range of different effects and experiences that result from each person who consumes cannabis. As a result, cannabis is not simply a ‘one-size-fits-all’ plant, in terms of dosing and effects felt. 

Especially when preparing to explore a new cannabis product, such as an edible or tincture, it’s important to remember to start the dosage out slow and low. 

Additionally, each and every cannabis product out there is not created the same. Some products may have a higher concentration of cannabinoid content than others, which can directly influence the outcome of effects and feelings you’re looking for. 

Starting off with a smaller and lower dose can help you better determine how the product is affecting your body, plus it gives you a better foundation to build off of if you’re looking for more potent effects. 


Tracking Your Cannabis Consumption 

Furthermore, similarly to how many will calculate their caloric intake or meals eaten for diet and health purposes, the same can be done with your cannabis consumption! 

Especially if you’re new to cannabis or trying a different product for the first time, tracking your cannabis experience, dosage, and other important information can help you better determine the right dose for you in the future. 

For instance, before lighting up your joint or indulging in some sweet and potent cannabis edibles, consider asking yourself (or writing down and journaling) the following: 

  • The method of consumption chosen (inhalation, digestion, topical, sublingual, etc.) 
  • The cannabis product itself  (joint, vape, edible, tincture, etc.) 
  • The dosage amount taken 
  • Your intent for consuming cannabis at that given moment
  • The effects felt 
  • The onset duration and timing of effects felt 
  • Other medications taken during this time 


This journaling and reflecting on your cannabis consumption experience only takes a minute or two — but can be significantly helpful in the long run — when you’re ready to explore and practice different doses or consumption patterns. 


The Key to Properly Dosing Cannabis  

The information listed about cannabis dosage should be considered generally, understanding that tolerance levels and different strains are among the many factors that contribute to finding the right edible dosage. 

Additionally, different cannabis consumption methods will all have various onset times and affect your body slightly differently. 


Gram’s Five & Dime: Supporting Conscious & Responsible Cannabis Consumption

In conclusion, as conscious cannabis consumers, it’s up to each of us to be responsible for the research and consideration we take when choosing the right cannabis dosage. 

Remember: there’s no one standard answer or result for each cannabis user — so take the time to start slow and low when trying a new product — and be sure to consider all of the important details we mentioned above.

*Always be sure to consult a physician before making any changes to your health or fitness regimen.*
