“I just got a vape pen and ACDC cartridge (20:1 CBD:THC), which I am using for joint pain and inflammation. Here’s the thing: I can’t find any guidelines in terms of dosing. Can you please let me know what you would suggest? I read on HelloMD that someone used it two to three times per day, but it doesn’t say how many hits the person took on the vape pen (although I am assuming they took one or two). Please advise.”
The reason you did not read about dosage on that page is because dosage is incredibly individual when it comes to cannabis. The term “low and slow” is used a lot and that means to take some and wait to see how you feel, and then make the decision to possibly take more. The problem is is that my tolerance may or may not be anything like yours.
With ACDC there is no THC and if there is it is negligible. You won’t get high, you may however get very, very relaxed. I have a very low tolerance for cannabis and with my ACDC vape pen, I have gone at it until I felt pain relief. Again, this is subjective as what gives me pain relief may not give you pain relief.
ACDC is a high-CBD strain. My experience with CBD is that it takes awhile to build up in the system. I might suggest that you try a high CBD tincture and use that on a daily basis and try a vape pen that is CBD but with a small ratio of THC for ongoing pain. You can read this article to see what my experience has been.
