Micro-dosing is defined as the administration of doses so low that they are unlikely to produce a whole-body effect, but high enough to allow a cellular response. Micro-dosing in cannabis is usually considered 0.5mg to 20mg THC per day.
Ilera Dispensary will soon be opening a drive-through service in an effort to cut back on interactions. This service will only be available to patients who order online through Blackbird.
