Thanks for posting that John. You have a good screen presence :slight_smile:

I hadn’t heard of microdosing as a concept for cannabis, but it makes sense after hearing you talk about it. There was an interesting Reply All podcast episode recently about microdosing of LSD, where the hosts of the podcast tried it out:

I’m familiar with the case. I actually think micro-dosing cannabis can have a similar effect on the human perspective as micro-dosing LSD, but on a much smaller scale. Sometimes all the body needs when stressed is a small dose of THC or CBD.

Yeah that’s something I’d be interested in checking out. You don’t happen to have anywhere in the Denver area that sells your products, perchance?

We are based in CA, but I live in Denver. When I get another round of products we can link up.

Perfect, thank you! It’s too bad that interstate issues prevent products produced in one state from easily being available in another.

Cool video. I have a number of different tinctures that I use to micro-dose (or macro-dose) depending on the circumstances. A Diesel for daytime, A White Widow for nighttime (the humulene in the WW is a useful terp for resting) and an OG that is versatile. I used to micro-dose lsd many many years ago - nothing like just having a little sparkle in the day to inspire creativity and give an extra bounce in the step. A little dab of amphetamines - keeps you focused for hours… Now it seems micro-dosing mushrooms is the new hip thing…

Do you make the tinctures yourself @nathan? If so, what’s your process?

Yes I make the tinctures myself. I take about an oz of prime buds, finely chopped, put in a jar and then do about a 1:1 volume with a 70+% or so alcohol (I prefer that to a 95% or more as that shit is just toxic). I usually use an OP rum or such. I then store the mix in a dark cupboard for 6+ weeks - giving it a shake every day or so as I remember.

Then a couple of drops or a few mls for a micro-dose - best under the tongue for the most rapid absorption. I have a pretty high tolerance so what I dose would have a significant impact on the average user.

I also make a full moon and solstice tincture - a little bit more intricate - maybe a little bit more powerful - a little bit more ‘magical’ - a witching brew so to speak.

Looks like microdosing is becoming more popular. MJ Freeway is doing a webinar on it:
