Description

Microdosing with Cannabis

Learn the 'what' and the 'how' of microdosing.

Microdosing is a hot topic and many people wonder how to do it effectively. The practice of microdosing refers to ingesting small amounts of a substance, including cannabis, to create a specific effect - without the often-associated psychoactive “high”. For today’s cannabis consumer, this may involve self-titrating small amounts of cannabis throughout the day with specific types of products to treat a specific condition.

For someone not seeking to treat a medical condition, microdosing may be used to create a sense of well-being, reduce anxiety and stress, focus attention, spark creativity or uplift the spirits on a dreary day. Whatever the motivation may be, microdosing isn’t about achieving the stereotypical high, it’s about achieving a sense of equilibrium and general sense of health and wellness.



In this interactive discussion, HelloMD’s Chief Medical Officer Dr. Perry Solomon will speak with Chris Emerson, Ph.D, the Chief Scientist of Level, to hear about the science behind microdosing and how to effectively achieve the right effect with specific kinds of cannabis products. This fireside chat will be followed by an audience Q&A where everyone has a chance to ask their questions.

This event is $5 to attend and a non-consumption event.
