How quickly you develop a tolerance. Your ideal THC dosage can change over time as you develop a tolerance for the cannabinoid. The ECS is a highly tuned instrument that responds to overstimulation by diminishing cannabinoid receptors, meaning that over time, higher doses will be required to achieve the same effect. You can keep your tolerance in check by taking tolerance breaks and being mindful of how much you consume.
Cannabis strains vary widely in potency, cannabinoid content, and terpene content — all of which can affect your high. Luckily, lab-tested products purchased from licensed, legal dispensaries come with certificates of analysis that make the dosing process accurate and easy. Look for the THC percentage on a package of cannabis flower to determine how much of an effect you can expect to get from one puff of a joint or bong rip.
The body processes THC differently when it’s ingested rather than inhaled. After digestion, the liver transforms THC into 11-hydroxy-THC, a compound that’s more potent, lasts longer, and has more sedating properties than THC. The effects of an edible can take anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours to kick in. Once they do, the effects can last for several hours depending on the dose and the consumer’s metabolism.
So far we’ve been talking about THC in terms of percentages, but with cannabis edibles, the potency is measured in milligrams. For example, a tin of weed gummies at your local dispensary might have 100 mg THC per package and 5 mg THC per gummy. For beginners trying to wrap their heads around what these numbers mean, here’s a quick breakdown:
Knowing your ideal THC dosage is like a weed passport. Once you’ve found the milligram range or THC percentage that works best for you, the vast world of cannabis is yours to explore. But in the same way that planning for a big trip requires time and effort, so does finding your dose.
Bottom line: exercise the same caution with tinctures as you would with edibles. Start with a THC dosage of 2 mg or less and gradually increase the dose by 1 mg every 24 hours until you find the ideal dose for you.
Smoking cannabis flower provides a quick onset of effects. You can expect to feel high within minutes of inhaling cannabis smoke, so you’ll know whether you consumed too much or too little fairly quickly. That high will then peak roughly 30 minutes after inhalation before tapering off for an hour or so.
Patients who are able to tolerate 5 mg twice daily may benefit from a dosage increase. The maximum dosage recommended is 10 mg twice daily (8 drops, twice a day). This should be progressed over several weeks, as tolerated.

Tinctures are absorbed sublingually, so essential cannabinoids are absorbed directly into the bloodstream. Effects are delayed through the absorption process but are prolonged. The application is very discreet, with no odor.
Common strain names are unreliable for describing a particular genetic variant (a.k.a phenotype or strain) since their chemical expression varies tremendously from grower to grower. Fluent strain names represent the specific phenotype that we grow, offering you a true, consistent representation of our products.

Tincture Dosage Chart
If you are trying cannabis for the first time, you may have heard that it’s important to find your optimal dose or right ratio. The most effective way to do so is through a method called titration. Titration is the practice of adjusting your dose in low increments over a period of time to obtain the maximum benefit without adverse effects. For those who want a personalized introduction to cannabis wellness, there is no better way than to start with tinctures. By then end of this article you will have all the tools and tips you need, a tincture dosing guide, and a tincture dosage chart to start your wellness routine.
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.
Days 5-7: Take 0.50ml in the morning. Take 0.75ml in the evening.
