Check out this Vice video on Micro-dosing Marijuana.
The creator of LSD, Dr. Albert Hofmann, believed that ingesting tiny amounts of the drug could have therapeutic value, and so-called “micro-doses” have since been proposed as a substitute for everything from Adderall to marriage counseling. Now, as more states legalize marijuana, the trend that began with hallucinogens has grown to include micro-doses of THC, the main psychoactive ingredient in weed.
VICE News traveled to Portland, Oregon, to meet Ethan Ernest, creator of marijuana micro-dose pills called Mirth Control, which contain a fraction of the THC found in a typical joint or batch of edibles. Earnest compares Mirth Control to “open-source Xanax. Other products in the new weed micro-dosing category push the envelope even further with suggestions about purported medical uses.
Editorial Note: The Heads remain unconvinced on the ‘micro-dose movement’ and have recommitted to (in Ben Harper’s words) “Burning One Down.”
