There is no one-size-fits-all dose of THC-O, but doses typically range from 3 to 30 milligrams. THC-O takes about 1 hour if ingested in gummies or tinctures. If it takes longer, do not take more than 2 hours after your last dose. Ingesting cannabinoids takes a while, but the effects are more powerful and last longer than when vaping or smoking.
Measuring the dose of vaporizers is not an exact science, since there is no way to know exactly how much THC-O oil is ingested in each “puff”. However, keep in mind that THC-O is much more potent than other forms of THC, so even an oral dose can produce extremely strong effects if taken at the right dose. You can also measure your ideal dose of THC-O by using it and changing the dose slightly each session. In general, you should wait long enough (twice the time suggested above) for the effects to peak before deciding if you want to increase your dose the next time you take THC-O.
This usually means testing THC-O several times before finding the dosage threshold that you're comfortable with. When taken in large enough doses, the effects can even be described as “psychedelic”, something to consider when adjusting the dose of THC-O. If you're just starting out with THC-O, you might be looking for some general THC-O dosing guidelines. Often, you'll find that the company that makes thc-o acetate products has a recommended dosage chart somewhere on their packaging, letting you know how much you should take in a single session to consume an “average amount” of thco acetate.
Each gummy in a pack will contain the same amount of milligrams of THC-O, which means that to adjust the dose you take, you just have to change the amount of gummy you consume with each serving. THC-O tinctures are practical because you can adjust the dose in small increments as long as you know the potency of the tincture and know how to measure it precisely. In any case, you should be careful with the dosage when using THC-O, since its intoxicating effects are three times stronger than those of THC.
