Microdosing: The Rise of Low-Dose Consumption

4 Oct

Screen Shot 2017-10-04 at 1.29.00 PMMicrodosing is becoming more mainstream, with low-dose edibles and tinctures popping up at many collectives around California. Microdosing is the art of consuming small doses to gain the benefits of the plant, while limiting psychoactivity and maintaining a clearer head.

The use of cannabis is a very personal one: many of us react differently to the wide array of products, doses, and cannabinoid / terpene profiles. Some consume for medicinal benefits, some recreationally, but all of us have different tolerances and reactions. This has given rise to microdosing – as more people are introduced to cannabis, the need for varied (and smaller) doses will become more of the norm.

One study shows the power of microdosing, which found that patients with advanced cancer experienced the greatest relief in pain from the lowest dose of cannabinoids, while the highest dose actually increased pain.

Another study illustrates this point with 4mg of synthetic cannabinoid being administered for PTSD. The results show that there was a great reduction in chronic pain and PTSD-related insomnia and night terrors.

As a low-tolerance consumer, I have spent plenty of time experimenting with the “perfect” dose for my needs: mainly, pain and insomnia. Before I knew about microdosing, I’d eat a 60mg edible and end up feeling worse than I did before – anxious, paranoid, nauseas, and unable to attend to my day-to-day tasks. This lead me to experimenting – and have since found that 5mg is my sweet spot!

A great place to start with microdosing is 2.5mg for a few days to keep track of the effects and your experience with that particular dose. For those who already have a tolerance built-up and want to experiment with microdosing, a tolerance break is recommended (a few days to a week). Petra Mints are an awesome option for those wanting to discreetly enjoy microdosing, and build from there!

Ganja Goddess Capsules

21 Nov

GanjaGoddessCapsAre you looking for a product to help with pain management without experiencing the strong psychoactive effects commonly associated with cannabis? Clear headed pain management has taken a step forward with our new Ganja Goddess Capsules. Raw cannabis contains Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid, THCA, which transforms into THC through the drying and heating process. Essentially when marijuana smokes the raw THCA cooks into THC.

THCA, like CBD, is non-psychoactive.

It does still appear have anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective effects. [1][2] What this means is that products created using raw cannabis or cold extraction methods are just like CBD products which won’t get the patient as ‘high’, yet also offer a higher concentration of elements that aid the healing process.

Our new line of Ganja Goddess capsules provide for clear-headed medication with CBD comparable effects. Made with pure C02 cold extracted hash oil and organic olive oil, these capsules come in three categories:

50mg Therapeutic
Our original raw version made with the cold extraction process.
47mg of THCA, 8.5 mg of THC, 2mg CBD, and .7mg CBN

50mg High Strength
A new powerful version which is decarbonized to have a larger THC content.
39.5mg THCA, 19mg THC, 1.7mg CBD, and .8mg CBN

100mg Therapeutic
A new raw version made with the cold extraction process.
93.5 mg THCA, 17mg THC, 3.8mg CBD, and 1.3mg CBN

These new versions of our Ganja Goddess Capsules are very popular due to their concentrated medicinal qualities. Please bear with us as we work to keep up with the high demand!
