Users can micro-dose for recreational use, but it has also been shown to have positive effects on mood and mental health throughout the day. Emerald has put together a guide on this new popular technique with the help of our friends from MOONWLKR. Read more to see how to get a free MOONWLKR sample!
What is Delta-8-THC?
Delta-8-THC is one of more than 100 naturally-occurring cannabinoids, or chemical compounds, found in hemp. Other cannabinoids include CBD or delta-9-THC. Delta-9-THC produces the famous, psychoactive high that users know cannabis for. Similar to delta-9-THC, delta-8-THC produces a high. However, is it less potent, and more euphoric than a delta-9-THC high, according to consumers. For an in-depth look at delta-8-THC, see our article — Understanding Delta-8-THC with MOONWLKR.
What is Micro-dosing?
Micro-dosing is the act of taking very low doses of psychoactive substances. According to a study published in the Harm Reduction Journal, micro-dosing may have certain benefits, including improved mood and focus.
Furthermore, Harvard Health explains, “micro-dosing is when patients take a dose of psychedelics that is too small to produce any perceptible effects, generally between 5 to 10% of a standard dose.”
Why Micro-dose Delta-8-THC?
Generally speaking, many micro-dose in order to get the therapeutic benefits, not psychoactive properties, of a substance.
Micro-dosing is rising in popularity as more and more people are using minuscule doses of substances for medical or recreational purposes. For example, many use it to relieve pain, anxiety or symptoms of PTSD, reports Insider.
One can micro-dose a variety of substances, including delta-8-THC. Leafly explains that when it comes to cannabis products, 5 mg is considered a micro-dose. However, this depends on the consumer and their tolerance. New users should start low and gradually increase their dose.
A MOONWLKR gummy user said, “I loved this product! Delicious fruity taste, calming, relaxing sensation, and even helped with my chronic arthritis pain! Highly recommended!”
How to Micro-dose MOONWLKR Products
MOONWLKR offers a suite of products that users can micro-dose, specifically, the company’s Delta-8 Gummies. The gummies contain 25 mg of delta-8-THC per gummy. However, consumers can micro-dose one gummy throughout the day by cutting it up into four pieces, each with just over 5 mg of delta-8-THC. That way, one gummy will last one day. And with packs of 25 gummies, this could last users an entire month when used regularly.
MOONWLKR recommends that customers keep gummies in the refrigerator so they don’t melt together. This ensures dosing is precise, and also — makes cutting the gummies up a bit easier. The gummies have a shelf life of around one and a half to two years if stored properly which makes micro-dosing easier for a long period of time.
Additionally, consumers can also micro-dose delta-8-THC with a vape by simply taking an occasional puff throughout the day. Consumers can gauge how the vape affects them and personalize their smoking habits to what works best. The good news is that delta-8-THC vapes rarely expire if they are stored and used properly. MOONWLKR recommends storing these in dark, cool places in an upright position to avoid clogs and loss of flavor for up to two years.
