There are two types of marijuana plants with thousands of strains within the two. To be sure that you pick the right choice for what you. Are you in pain? Or is it sleep that you are looking for? The Sativa and Indica marijuana plants give you different attributes. Experimenting with different strains is often needed to directly address the personal health issues you may have. You might check with other patients so that they can share what works for them. I know of a woman with Crohn's disease and colitis that tried 40 different strains of marijuana before finding optimal relief from her symptoms. She is now off of all medical prescribed drugs.
How Much Marijuana Should I Use?
Here are some basic anecdotal rules of thumb concerning THC dose for occasional cannabis users. Again, these are anecdotal and should not be considered professional or medical advice. Remember that there are genetic differences among individuals, so doses and onset times vary.
2 mg: threshold of psychoactivity for infrequent users. Very little to no impairment.
2.5 mg: most report psychoactivity equal to a glass of wine or a beer. Doses in this range are popular for social anxiety, encouraging the munchies, and focus.
5 mg: nearly all occasional users will note significant psychoactivity. Significant appetite stimulation. Mild psychoactivity, akin to two to three glasses of wine.
10 mg: Strong psychoactivity for most occasional users. Significant distraction from pain. This dose is often recommended by physicians to stem nausea from chemotherapy.
15 mg: Most occasional users report uncomfortable levels of psychoactivity at this dose. Regular users of cannabis do not.
1000 mg: the most potent edible available in California dispensaries. This is ten times the maximum THC content of the edibles permitted by law to be sold in Colorado adult-use cannabis shops.
You will want to test your marijuana if you plan to either sell to a dispensary or to actually make an attempt to know what is in your medicines that you make.
There are still many problems with the testing here in Oregon and possibly other States where testing one specific bud could end up with ten different results if 10 labs were used. It isn't very comforting to know that you are still playing a game knowing very well that our testing facilities can be flawed. Read more
