Now that delta 10 THC is finally available for purchase at Pure CBD Vapors, in all kinds of distinctive product formulations and delivery methods, it’s time to talk about milligram strength. Milligram strength is always one of the first things that must be considered when starting a new hemp routine. Why? Because it has everything to do with how strongly you feel the effects. Given the psychoactive nature of delta 10, this strength of effects is even more important than ever.
What is the Milligram Strength and How Can It Make or Break Your Routine?
The milligram strength of a hemp product informs us on how potent the product actually is. All hemp products with the exception of flower contain a cannabinoid extract that has been diluted with other ingredients, such as a carrier oil in the case of a tincture, or flavoring ingredients that are in an edible. Therefore, the milligram strength simply states how many milligrams are in each dose that we take. The dosage amount also doesn’t actually tell us how potent the effects will be.
Of course, the milligram strength is an important thing to pay attention to.
- Taking too low of a strength means that you will not feel the effects all that noticeably.
- Taking too high of a strength could get you higher than you’d like to be.
Standard Milligram Strength Guidelines Per Delivery Method
There is a standard guideline for milligram strengths of delta 10 products, broken down by delivery method. The reason why it’s broken down by delivery method is because each method absorbs into the body in its own distinctive manner. Some delivery methods absorb more efficiently than others. That means fewer milligrams are needed per dose to create the desired response.
Remember, this information below is simply a guideline, created for beginners looking for a general idea of how many milligrams of delta 10 THC they should be taking each day. You may also notice that the milligram strength guidelines are the same as those of cannabidiol (CBD) and delta 8 THC, as they pertain to cannabinoids in general based on what we know about the body’s endocannabinoid system.
- Vapes: Delta 10 vaping products come in various forms including bottled e-liquids, disposable devices and pre-filled cartridges. The milligram strength guidelines are the same across the board. 1 to 3 puffs are considered a standard dose, with a single puff being great for beginners. So, how many milligrams are in each puff? To figure this out, divide the number of milligrams by the number of milliliters. Then, divide that number by 100, as each milliliter contains about 100 puffs. If you have a 1ml vape cart with an 800mg strength, that comes out to 8 milligrams per puff. Because inhalation is such an efficient absorption method, just 8 milligrams could give you the desired results.
- Flower: The same rules above apply to flower, as 1 to 3 puffs is standard. Flower does not come in milligram strengths, but may provide information instead about the percentage of delta 10 THC in the total chemical composition, as determined by a third-party lab analysis.
- Edibles: Standard strength per dose is 10 to 25 milligrams. Virtually all edibles on the market contain somewhere in this range per piece for easy dosing. Ten milligrams are a better starting point for beginners.
- Capsules: Follow the same guidelines as edibles, due to the fact that they’re also ingested. 10 to 25 milligrams per dose is ideal, with 10 being better suited for beginners, and most companies put 10 to 25 milligrams in each capsule.
- Tinctures: Absorb sublingually, under the tongue, and come in 30ml dropper bottles that makes dosing easy. The standard milligram strength per dose is 33 milligrams, with 1000 milligrams total.
- Dabs: Not ideal for beginners because they are by definition concentrates that are extremely potent. 1 to 3 puffs are considered ideal, with 1000mg per gram being a standard amount.
What Factors Should You Consider When It Comes to Delta 10 Milligram Strength?
There are some things that can further influence which milligram strength is right for you. So, these are important to keep in mind when beginning a new delta 10 routine.
- Your Body Weight: As it turns out, the higher your body weight, the more milligrams per dose you may need to feel the effects that you’re looking for.
- Your Tolerance to THC: We all have a unique tolerance level to delta 10 THC, with some of us being more sensitive to its effects than others. Beginners have not yet developed any tolerance, and so they may need to go with a lower strength in the beginning.
- Your Responsibilities: What you have to do in the next few hours can influence how much delta 10 you should take. You shouldn’t drive when under the influence of the cannabinoid.
When to Change Your Milligram Strength of Delta 10
Let’s say you follow the guidelines above but find that the amount of delta 10 you’re taking is a bit more or less than you actually wanted. We recommend that you change your milligram strength after about 2 weeks of daily use, as this is about the amount of time it takes for the body to adjust to its new routine. Then, adjust in small increments until you find your sweet spot.
Note: If never used any form of THC before, stick with the lower end of milligram strengths available. This is, until you’ve built up a tolerance.
