Are you a beginner or an experienced cannabis consumer who wants to know the right amount of THC? Well, there is no standard cannabis dosage. THC affects everyone differently. Your cannabis journey and the amount of THC required to give you the desired feeling depends on your weight, metabolism, tolerance, and other factors. Here, we look at all you need to know when settling on a THC dosage.  


What You Need to Know about THC

THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is one of the many compounds of the cannabis plant. It is the cannabinoid responsible for the psychoactive effect or high feeling derived from smoking or ingesting cannabis. However, consumers of cannabis products respond differently to THC. Two people will have different experiences after consuming the same THC dose. So, what is the right amount of THC for you?

The ideal THC dosage depends on various factors. Understanding the factors will help you get the correct dosage for the best cannabis experience. Here are some of the factors that affect your THC experience.


Your weight is another factor that influences your response to THC. People with a higher weight may require more THC amounts to achieve their desired feeling than those with a lower weight. Your weight should guide you in choosing the ideal THC amount.


Cannabis dosage amount also depends on how fast your body processes THC. Consumers with a faster metabolism rate have quicker onsets that last for a shorter duration. 


Experienced and regular consumers of cannabis products have a higher THC tolerance than beginners or infrequent users. Beginners and infrequent consumers should start with low THC dosage and increase as they develop tolerance.

Sensitivity to THC

Some people are more sensitive to THC than others. Those who experience more pronounced effects when they consume cannabis products should start with micro amounts and increase as they get used to THC.


Different Forms of THC

THC comes in different forms. You can get it in the form of cannabis flowers, concentrates, hash oil, tinctures, capsules, and edibles. Some forms of THC are more potent than others. The various forms also have different delivery methods. Understanding the various forms, their potency, delivery method, and onset will help you select the right cannabis dosage.


Flowers are smoked like cigarettes or vaporizers. Concentrates and oils are also smoked or vaporized. Tinctures are consumed sublingually (placed under the tongue). Edibles, on the other hand, are eaten or drank and follow the digestive process. Regardless of the consumption method, start small and increase the dosage gradually until you get the ideal THC amount.
