CBD (Cannabidiol) is not psychoactive, and consuming it will not give you the high you would associate marijuana consumption with. Cannabidiol is one of a few cannabinoids found in cannabis.
CBD has numerous health benefits, such as lowering blood pressure, pain relief, reducing anxiety and reducing cancer related symptoms.
Taking CBD Tincture
Using a CBD tincture is the most common and easiest way of consuming CBD.
Using the dropper, drop some oil on your tongue and leave it there for around 1 minute before swallowing.
CBD can also be vaped, using either e-liquid or a CBD cartridge system. For those who are smokers, they will likely find this the most enjoyable way of consuming CBD.
If you want to precise with dosage, CBD capsules are a great way of consuming it.
When it comes to weed, sometimes less is more.
Micro-dosing is the practice of taking measured and micro doses of marijuana, allowing you enjoy the benefits of weed without forgetting your name. It allows a slight buzz to get through, enough to take the edge away, but not enough to create paranoia or other unwanted psychological effects.

The amount of marijuana consumed while micro-dosing is around 1/10th that of a standard dose.
Those who micro-dose tend to report:
- Better Focus
- Increased energy
- Enhanced creativity
- Improved relationships
- Less anxiety
One of the great things about micro-dosing is it can flow with day to day life, allowing you to focus clearly and enjoy the relaxing anti inflammatory properties.
For those with creative jobs, micro-dosing can be especially beneficial, bringing a fresh perspective into your work.
So how do you microdose?
There’s a number of ways you can micro-dose marijuana, it really depends on your preferences, so there’s not any particular method we would recommend over another.
Pipes and joints are an easy and enjoyable method of micro-dosing, but it must be noted that it can be quite easy to go over the desired dose.
Vaping is a great option for micro-dosing, it is also one of the healthiest ways to smoke weed and will allow you to dose more accurately and has the added benefit of avoiding hazardous carcinogens.
Weed edibles are another great way of micro-dosing. The general micro-dose of THC for edibles is around 5mg… you need to be more careful with dosing edibles, as the effects last much longer than smoking cannabis. There are also many edible products on the market, such as weed fusion mints (containing 5mg of THC per mint), THC infused chocolate bites, THC infused tea, and more. So if you don’t feel comfortable measuring out the dose yourself, you are spoiled for choice when it comes to pee made micro-dosed products.
3 Eat Raw Weed
When consuming weed raw, without hearing it, the CBDA (cannabidiolic acid) and THCA (tetrahydrocannabinolic acid) remain as they are, without being transformed into CBD and THC. CBDA is an anti inflammatory and THCA has many uses, such as treating epilepsy and protecting against neuro degenerative disease.
Since the THCA has not converted into THC, through heat, eating marijuana doesn’t get you high. So it’s a perfect way to enjoy the benefits of weed without the buzz.
4 Use Topical Cannabis Balms
The skin is one of the bodies largest organs, it’s often overlooked, but cannabis balms are a great method of using cannabis medicinally.

Rather than distributing cannabinoids throughout the entire body, using topical balms allows you to isolate it’s application, to where it’s needed most.
Topical Cannabis balms have anti inflammatory properties and act as treatment for many skin disorders such as shingles, eczema and psoriasis.
