Week 2 is about consistency and staying balanced. If you are solving for pain and discomfort and you aren’t getting enough results, now is the time to increase your dosage. Also remember that it is okay to raise or lower your dose depending on your experience. You may want to up your dose or lower your dose depending on your desired effects! This week is also a good time to create a balanced tolerance for your body. If you are concerned about intoxication, it’s okay to dial back your dose to 0.25ml. Let your body adjust naturally and then continue
To find your optimal dose, it is important to first understand how CBD and THC will work within your body. Each one of us has an Endocannabinoid System (ECS) that produces endocannabinoids. When dosing with CBD and THC, you are supplementing your ECS with natural phytocannabinoids from the plant to help your body maintain homeostasis. The ECS consists of two primary cannabinoid receptors: CB1 receptors (most concentrated in the central nervous system and brain) and CB2 receptors (abundant in the cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, and peripheral nervous systems). The natural cannabinoids and phytonutrients found in cannabis communicate with these signal receptors of the ECS to regulate physiological processes including appetite, pain sensation, mood, and memory.

Week 3 is about patience. When titrating with THC and CBD it is important to stay attuned to your body and what you are feeling per dose. Keep tabs on your experience. Get yourself a nice notebook and record the times and amounts you dose along with the effects experienced. This will give you a baseline to work with in the future.
Days 1-4: Take 0.25ml of your chosen tincture once in the morning and once at night.
Depending on how you use cannabis and other medications, there can be possible medication interactions. Our Leaf411 library offers guidance on specific medication interactions here.
Whether you’re looking at CBD hemp or cannabis containing higher levels of THC (sold legally in dispensaries), you have several different routes of administration to choose between :

Most marijuana flower sold at legal dispensaries is THC-dominant, with very little CBD. Of course there are exceptions, such as The Wife strain or even some CBD hemp flower strains. However, odds are that if you’re using flower, you won’t find ratios connected to the strain.
