How to Use Micro-Dosing as Part of Your Work-From-Home Strategy With Help From Your Denver Dispensary


September 15, 2020

COVID-19 has had a lot of impact on our economy and the way businesses work, chief among them forcing workers to stay out of the office and work from home. If you’re one of those lucky individuals that gets to work from your couch while wearing pajamas (on days without Zoom meetings, at least), you’ve probably wondered if using cannabis from your favorite weed shops in Denver is something you can do. While there’s no boss actively looking over your shoulder, watching what you’re doing, you still need to use cannabis with caution. Micro-dosing is your best bet. Here are a few tips to help you get started.

Use the Smallest Amount Possible
As the name implies, micro-dosing involves using very small amounts of cannabis anytime you take a dose. That’s why most people prefer to use edibles as it’s easier to control the amount you consume at any given time. When you’re first starting out with micro-dosing, try to use the smallest amount of cannabis as possible. Remember, the goal isn’t to get high. It’s to help you be more productive and get more work done when you’re working from home. If you’re not sure where to start, your best bet is to pick up a low concentration edible at your dispensary. Then, use a small serving and see how you feel. If you need to, you can increase your dosage until you reach the perfect balance.

Pay Attention to the Strain
Different strains affect your body in different ways. Most people experience extreme lethargy when using Indica-heavy strains and enhanced creativity and focus when using Sativa-dominant strains. Use this to your advantage and look for products that offer your preferred strain or hybrid type. Remember, you can and should experiment to see how micro-dosing changes the way you experience the weed. You may find that Sativa products are better for detail work and Indica are better for tedious or repetitive tasks.

Consider Getting Started on the Weekend
You never know how micro-dosing will impact you and when you’re working from home without supervision, the last thing you want to do is end up feeling too high because you took too big of a dose. Spare yourself the frustration of a really grueling workday and try micro-dosing for the first time on your day off. Check in with yourself every few hours and see how you feel. Adjust your dosage as needed to achieve the mindset you want to have during the workweek. Once you figure out that perfect dosage, write it down so you’ll remember what you need during the workweek. 

Micro-Dosing Can Be a Useful Tool
If you’re having trouble staying focused while working from home, micro-dosing can be a useful tool to help you stay on track and get work done. However, you need to make sure you have the best quality products at your disposal to get the best results.
