Cannabis Oil Dosing 101
Start Low, and Go Slow
Compared to inhaled forms of cannabis, orally ingested cannabis oil typically takes longer to take effect and lasts longer as well.
Affects from oil usually happen after the first 60-90 minutes after ingestion and may last for 8-10 hours depending on a number of variables (e.g. if you’ve eaten before or after). Because everyone experiences oil differently you should start at a very low dose (0.25 mL- a quarter of a dropper) and you can gradually increase your dose and/or adjust dose frequency until you find the optimal effects for you. Dosing under similar conditions each day (e.g. with or without food) will help achieve consistency of effect. For some people, ingesting oil after food helps with the digestion of the oil. Feel free to experiment to see what works for you!
