Why Microdose

Why Microdose

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) plays a crucial role in maintaining homeostasis within the body, regulating a wide range of physiological processes, including pain sensation, immune response, mood, appetite, and memory. Cannabinoids from the Hemp plant, like THC and CBD, interact with the ECS by binding to its receptors (CB1 and CB2), mimicking the action of endocannabinoids—cannabinoid-like substances produced naturally by the human body.

Dial in your daily microdose 

Daily microdosing of cannabinoids can potentially benefit the body and its maintenance of homeostasis in several ways:

Subtle Modulation of the ECS:

Unlike large doses of cannabinoids, which can overwhelm the ECS and lead to pronounced psychoactive effects and potential side effects, microdosing works by providing a gentle, consistent stimulation of the ECS. This can help support the system's natural functions without causing disruptive imbalances. All of Hey Mary Janes Gummies are made with a subtle microdose of cannabinoids to help balance the body.

Enhanced Endocannabinoid Tone:

Regular, low-level stimulation of the ECS through microdosing may help improve the "tone" of the endocannabinoid system, enhancing its responsiveness and efficiency. An improved ECS tone means better regulation of homeostasis across various bodily systems. 

Reduced Risk of Desensitization:

High doses of cannabinoids can lead to receptor desensitization or downregulation, where the body reduces the number of receptors or their responsiveness to maintain balance in response to excessive stimulation. Microdosing helps avoid this issue by keeping the stimulation level low and within a range that supports the ECS without overwhelming it.

Support for Neurogenesis and Neuroprotection:

Some research suggests that cannabinoids may promote neurogenesis (the growth of new neurons) and offer neuroprotective effects. Microdosing may help harness these benefits without the potential negative impacts on cognitive function that can come with higher doses. 

Improved Stress Response:

By modulating the ECS, microdosing cannabinoids with our Hey Mary Jane gummies can potentially improve the body's resilience to stress. The ECS is involved in regulating the stress response, and by supporting its function, microdosing may help maintain a more balanced emotional state.

Pain and Inflammation Regulation:

The ECS is deeply involved in the regulation of pain and inflammation. Microdosing cannabinoids can provide a way to influence these processes subtly, potentially offering relief from chronic pain and inflammatory conditions without the side effects  associated with conventional pain medications or high doses of cannabinoids. With Tumeric, Full spectrum CBD and CBG,   Our Soothe CBG Gummies offer a natural alternative to your current daily go to . 

Regulation of Sleep Patterns:

Cannabinoids have been shown to influence sleep. Through its action on the ECS, microdosing might help stabilize sleep patterns , contributing to better overall homeostasis by ensuring adequate rest and recovery. Our Drift CBN Sleep Gummies are the perfect combination of a subtle microdose of cannabinoids , valerian root, magnesium and other sleep including herbs to help you drift off to dreamland.

It's important to note that while the theoretical benefits of microdosing cannabinoids in relation to the ECS and homeostasis are compelling, research in this area is still developing. Many of the insights into how cannabinoids interact with the ECS come from studies involving higher doses. As such, the specific effects and benefits of microdosing need further investigation to be fully understood. Nonetheless, speaking from personal experience, the microdose approach allows for a more subtle enjoyable experience for everyday use when you need a boost or to take the "edge" off. The practice of microdosing holds promise as an approach to leveraging the therapeutic potentials of cannabinoids while minimizing risks and side effects.
