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”?
Not all cannabinoids are created equal. That’s why we created Microdose... to keep your experience simple and amazing.
Considering which cannabinoids to take and how much to take is daunting, so here are some key notes to get you started...
Cannabinoids vary in effects, dosage, and bioavailability*.
The most important thing to consider when finding your perfect dose is how much THC to consume.
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 benifits are increased... Too much CBD or CBG and the synergy becomes less effective.
In short, Microdose delivers a balanced-spectrum of cannabinoids that produce results like no other hemp-derived product on the market... All you need to do is find your perfect dose & enjoy.
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...
1 dose = 2mg (THC)
2.5 doses = 5mg (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 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, perscriptions, etc.), and your agenda (studying, adventuring, partying, sleeping).
Overall, the goal is to gain familiarity with Microdose so that you can use it as a tool for making life better. Whether it’s daily anxiety, pain, or insomnia... an addiction to other substances your looking to curve... your next great adventure with friends... or a little creative boost... We’d love to be there with you :)
*The degree and rate at which a substance is absorbed into a living system or is made available at the site of physiological activity.
**Micorodse tincture can be added to food and drinks but is most effectively taken by mouth by momentaraly holding the oil under your tounge before swallowing.
***Effects can kick in as quickly as 10 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.
