Hello, I’m new to the group and I’m hoping you guys can help me out. However, I’m not new to weed. I’ve been smoking since I was 15, but I gave it up once harder drugs were introduced to me (cocaine is one hell of a ride).
Anyways, I’ve been experiencing insomnia, anxiety and depression recently and the internet is swearing by THC/CBD edibles to help alleviate those symptoms. I never enjoyed getting high because normally I would get way too high trying to keep up with my friends who smoked regularly. I get paranoid and anxious when I smoke but I’ve heard microdosing can help mitigate those effects.
With that being said I also don’t want to waste my money on a dose so micro that I don’t feel anything. I’m considering 2 gummies at the moment. One which has an 18:1 ratio of CBD to THC so 18 mg of CBD for 1 mg of THC. Versus another gummy which has 3.5 mg of THC for every one gram of CBD. The CBD content in the second gummy is low and I’m afraid the therapeutic effects won’t be be same. The THC content is also kind of high I think, I’m not sure if 3.5 milligrams is a safe place to start.
Just wanted thoughts and experiences from people who regularly consume edibles for chronic stress, insomnia , or anxiety. Thanks 😊.
