How Much THC Should Medical Cannabis Include To Benefit Patients?

Written by Admin

THC in medical cannabis provides the euphoric high so many love. The cannabinoid is one of two main compounds in marijuana, both of which provide benefits for a number of conditions and diseases. How much THC is necessary to help the patient depends on the person’s history of cannabis use and the condition or ailment. It is therefore challenging to determine a general THC guideline to obtain said benefits. However, the following is recommended to determine what is right for your health needs:

Cannabis Products

The first step in figuring out how much THC you need depends on how you wish to use a THC product. Cannabis “flower” or “weed” generally features lower concentrations of THC than oils, tinctures, capsules, and edibles such as gummy candy. Flowers also provide a steady rise in THC levels instead of hitting the body all at once, the way gummy candies or tinctures do.

Lower Doses

Starting with a lower dose from a reputable medical marijuana delivery company is always recommended if you are new to cannabis or related product use. Begin with flowers featuring 17 percent THC content or lower, or half of an edible featuring 10 milligrams of THC. Taking too much THC at once, such as an edible featuring 20 milligrams or more of the compound, risks that “too high” feeling that can cause nausea and vomiting. While you would have to take an incredible amount of THC at one time to “overdose,” feelings of nausea and the resulting retching are hardly ideal, especially if you are trying to alleviate a condition or disease symptoms.

Starting Small

Take a few small doses of THC throughout the day to start to determine what is best for you. If you find little to no relief or the desired effect, graduate to a higher dose. Again, start small until you have found the perfect dose for your medical needs.

Enjoy finding what is best for you!
