Dose refers to the exact quantity of cannabinoids, such as THC or CBD, consumed by a person in a single serving. Doses can vary widely depending on factors such as the potency of the product, the method of consumption, and individual tolerance levels.

For example, when consuming edibles, the dose is typically measured in milligrams of THC or CBD per serving. A standard dose for beginners might be 5-10 mg, while more experienced users consume higher doses based on their tolerance and desired effects.

When using cannabinoids, you need to start with a low dose and gradually increase as needed while monitoring for any adverse effects. Factors such as metabolism, body weight, and previous experience can all influence how you respond to a given dose. To get the most out of cannabinoids, you should take them at a dose that works best for you.
