However, with small doses, it is impossible to divide a dose of 5 mg into portions. Portioning an already small amount of concentrate can be the most difficult part of the dosing process. In the case of edibles, the recommended starting dose is 5 to 10 mg of THC to measure the effects. As with any new product or method of consumption, it's best to start as small as possible.
The usual recommended dose of THC when using products such as edibles is 10 mg of THC. You might want to use this as a guide, although cutting cannabis concentrates into precisely dosed pieces is easier said than done. The power is divided by a percentage. Most solvent-based hashish oils contain between 60 and 90% of total cannabinoids, with some special examples exceeding 90%.
Let's use an example of a one-gram sample of hashish oil containing 80% of total THC. That gram will contain 800 mg of cannabinoids in total. For reference, the recommended starting dose for an edible is between 5 and 10%. This should be an indicator that cannabis use is not for those who are new to cannabis use.
Getting a little bit of 5 mg from a hashish oil-free sample at any consistency is next to impossible. That said, there are professional standard dosage recommendations. One study suggested starting patients with 2.5 mg of THC, increasing the dose by 2.5 mg as needed to a maximum of 40 mg per day. Keep in mind that this was part of a formal treatment plan that included other cannabinoids, such as CBD.
Once you feel more comfortable with the concentrates, you can start weighing the wax before vaping and base the dose on the amount of wax you can safely vape at one time. If it contains wax with 80 percent THC and you divide it into eight servings, you'll get about 100 mg of THC per dose.
