What is Microdose?
Microdose is a limited release tincture that contains a “Balanced-Spectrum” of hemp-derived cannabinoids & terpenes, proprietarily formulated by Lumi Labs to increase bioavailability and deliver a “psychoactive microdose”.
What is a “Balanced-Spectrum”?
A single dose of our proprietarily formulated “Balanced-Spectrum” Microdose delivers a sub-perceptual dose of THC.
When enough THC is consumed (out of balance), it can (in some cases) cause mild anxiety… because of this, we’ve balanced the effects of THC by pairing it with other cannabinoids and terpenes so you can experience the power and bliss of THC, without the anxiety.
Not All Cannabinoids are Created Equal
Considering which cannabinoids to take and how much to take is daunting.
That’s why we created Microdose... to keep your experience simple and amazing.
— Key Notes on Cannabinoids —
Cannabinoids vary in effects, dosage, and bioavailability*.
THC starts to produce mildly psychoactive effects for most people at 2 - 5mg.
When THC is paired with CBD and CBG, the psychoactive effects are lessened, but the synergistic benefits are increased... Too much CBD or CBG and the synergy becomes less effective.
Our Lumi Labs team has meticulously formulated Microdose to deliver results like no other hemp-derived product on the market...
All you need to do is find your perfect dose & enjoy.
*The degree and rate at which a substance is absorbed into a living system or is made available at the site of physiological activity.
How do I Find “My Perfect Dose”?
The “Perfect Dose” varies from person to person and depends on a few key factors...
If you’re new to Microdosing we recommend starting with 2.5 doses or less because THC starts to produce mildly psychoactive effects at 2 - 5mg....
1 dose = 2mg of THC
2.5 doses = 5mg of THC
Once you decide how much to take for you first dose, take by mouth* and allow 30 minutes** for effects to fully set in.
Once you feel the effects leveling out, consider if you prefer more or less and take note for next time. If you prefer more, go ahead and repeat the process in smaller increments by adding a little at a time to your original dose.
When gauging your dose and experience, consider the variables... time of day, consumption of other compounds (caffeine, prescriptions, etc.), and your agenda (studying, cleaning, adventuring, partying, sleeping).
Overall, the goal is to gain familiarity with Microdose so that you can effectively use it as a tool for making life better.
**Microdose tincture can be added to food and drinks but is most effectively taken by mouth by momentarily holding the oil under your tongue before swallowing.
***Effects can kick in as quickly as 5 minutes.

What is CBG?
Cannabigerol (CBG) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that plays an important role in the biochemistry of the hemp plant. CBG acts as a chemical precursor to other cannabinoids such as THC and CBD.
CBG displays a multitude of potential health benefits including...
working as a neuroprotectant
having antioxidant properties
aiding with skin ailments as an anti-bacterial and anti-fungal agent
treatment of gastrointestinal disorders
shows promise in fighting cancer
lowering intraocular pressure which may benefit glaucoma patients
How Does CBG Work?
CBG interacts with both the CB1 and CB2 receptors, acting as a possible inhibitor to the psychoactive effects of THC. CBG is also thought to boost anandamide, an endocannabinoid that naturally increases dopamine levels and is responsible for regulating various health functions such as mood, sleep, and appetite. GABA uptake in the brain may be obstructed by CBG, making this cannabinoid a possible anti-anxiety agent and muscle relaxant.
CBG may also block serotonin receptors, showing potential antidepressant traits.
CBG holds promise to be a key constituent in the overall medicinal benefits cannabis may provide. As cannabis research continues to rapidly evolve, CBG may emerge as one of the most therapeutically applicable and diverse cannabinoids to offer a wide range of possible remedies.
