There is a question that runs through our minds, and that is: How much weed is too much?
The magic number
The Journal reported that 7.5 mg of THC is the best dose to provide stress relief and relaxation. Researchers say any dose higher will increase the chance of negatively altering your overall mood. The study focused on 42 healthy volunteers and they were placed in stressful scenarios, and then were given an easy, stress-less task.
Different results came out of the 12.5 mg THC group, “By contrast, 12.5mg THC increased negative mood overall i.e., both before and throughout the tasks. It also impaired TSST performance and attenuated blood pressure reactivity to the stressor.”
One dose does not fit all
NBC News reports that,“in Colorado’s legal bud, the average THC level is 18.7 percent, and some retail pot contains 30 percent THC or more.”
In a comment on the study’s revealings, High Times say, “Study participants were dosed with THC Capsules-meaning pure THC, no other cannabinoids, no terpenes. As has been demonstrated time and again, cannabis’ net effect on the body and brain has everything to do with the other constituent cannabinoids present, as well as the strain’s terpene content.”
The study didn’t even recognize the users high tolerance to marijuana. With them, 7.5 mg of THC isn’t going to get them high.
It’s all on you
Women tend to also have a tolerance before men will. This is all due to women having a higher body fat content that THC can be stored in. Your metabolism also matters in determining what dose is best for you.
Now you know how much cannabis is good for you, if not, have fun searching what dose works for you.
