When someone talks about “micro THC,” they aren’t discussing the way THC looks through a microscope or suggesting you shrink yourself down to the same size as a THC molecule. Instead, this phrase is short for “microdosing THC,” a non-intoxicating way to use this cannabinoid that has gained popularity in recent years.
What is microdosing THC, what are the benefits, and why should you do it? Find the answers in this beginner’s guide to Secret Nature’s new product line, Micro THC.
What is microdosing?
Microdosing is when you use a smaller amount of a substance than would usually be effective. Generally speaking, a microdose is about 10 times less potent than a normal dose of a substance. If you would usually use 25mg of THC to experience its full effects, for instance, a microdose might consist of around 2.5mg THC.
Can you microdose THC?
Yes, you can certainly microdose THC, and many cannabis users appear convinced of the benefits of this practice. Despite lacking psychoactive properties, microdosing THC might still convey some of this cannabinoid’s other benefits. Plus, buying tiny doses of THC online is legal.
Does microdosing THC get you high?
No, using THC in a microdose will not get you high or significantly alter your state of mind in any way. For many individuals, the effects of microdosed THC aren’t even immediately noticeable. Instead, they only become apparent over time after repeated administrations.
What are the benefits of microdosing THC?
Microdosing THC has a few obvious practical benefits, and some individuals are quite sure that using small amounts of THC is therapeutically useful as well. On the practical side, the primary benefit of microdosing THC is that it does not get you high.
For some people, the intoxication provided by THC is a positive effect. Others, though, simply want to experience the strictly medicinal benefits this cannabinoid is believed to offer without experiencing an altered state of mind.
Since they only concentrate THC into tiny doses, THC microdose products are widely available online. People believe that microdosing THC improves their mood and reduces pain even though they don’t experience this cannabinoid’s primary effects.
Can you buy microdose THC online?
Yes, it’s perfectly possible to buy microdose THC products online, even products that contain the federally illegal cannabinoid delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol. The 2018 Farm Bill established that products containing less than 0.3% THC are not marijuana and are regulated as industrial hemp instead.
Since THC does not make up more than 0.3% of the weight of microdose THC products, they are considered hemp and sold online. To ensure that microdose THC products are viable for online sale and not considered federally illegal drugs, check for lab tests proving that they contain less than 0.3% delta 9 THC on a dry weight basis.
What is the best type of THC microdose product?
There are a few different types of THC microdose products on the market with THC microdose gummies being the most popular. There are some obvious problems with microdose gummies, however, that might make alternatives more appealing.
Recall that to offer THC in a microdose, this cannabinoid must not consist of more than 0.3% of the total weight of the product. To achieve this ratio in a gummy, you need a whole lot of gummy for only a tiny amount of THC.
In practical reality, delta 9 gummies end up nearly the size of cookies instead of the tiny, berry-sized bites you’re used to. Some gummies contain natural, organic ingredients, but you never want to ingest high concentrations of sweeteners and flavoring ingredients even when they aren’t strictly toxic.
Since even the tiniest hit of cannabis vape or flower would deliver far more than a microdose of THC into your system, the only other options at your disposal are capsules, tinctures, and tablets. Capsules and tinctures share the problem of having to mix THC with large concentrations of carrier oils, but as a dry product, it’s easier to fit 0.3% THC into a comparatively small-sized chewable tablet.
Benefits of microdose THC tablets
Taking microdoses of THC in the form of a tablet allows you to consume lower concentrations of undesirable ingredients. To keep the ratio of THC-to-everything-else below 0.3%, other types of THC microdose products must contain high concentrations of fillers and sweeteners. Secret Nature Micro THC Tablets are reasonably small in size, however, while containing a big list of beneficial, natural substances like tyrosine, chaga, and cannabis terpenes.
Taking a microdose of THC in chewable tablet form is easy and discreet. Like all THC microdose products, it’s legal to buy microdose THC tablets online, adding a further layer of desirability.
Microdosing THC studies
Not a lot of research has been conducted into the possible benefits of microdosing THC, but what we’ve learned so far is certainly intriguing. In 2014, for instance, a study published in the Journal of Clinical Psychopharmacology detailed how just 4mg of a synthetic form of THC was able to help patients with PTSD and related disorders.
More recently in 2020, a clinical trial found that even 1mg of THC per day was more effective than a placebo against chronic pain. Based on the available evidence, it appears that the most important benefits of THC carry over even when you use this cannabinoid in a tiny, non-intoxicating dose.
Secret Nature Micro THC Tabs details

A single tablet contains 1.25mg THC, and the suggested serving is two tablets. A total of 30 tablets are included per bottle. Three tablet varieties are offered: Delta 9 Bliss, Delta 8 Flow, and THCV Focus, which capture each THC variant’s unique properties.
The strain-specific terpene profiles included in each tab blend offer unique benefits and natural flavoring, eliminating the need for other flavoring ingredients. Cannabinoids synergize with adaptogenic mushrooms, terpenes, and other tablet components to maximize the benefits provided by a 2.5mg microdose of THC.
Is microdosing THC worth it? The bottom line
In 2017, an unusually serious California medical cannabis doctor, Allan Frankel, told the Rolling Stone that he only gives most of his patients less than 3mg THC per day. The reason? Frankel says he stumbled on this “correct dose” after falling back on the medical maxim of “with all drugs, you look for the minimum effective dose.”
This principle makes perfect sense. In small doses, opioids can be very useful for pain. After continued use of large doses, however, these analgesic drugs almost always become addictive.
What if we’ve accidentally been using too much THC all this time? What if the best-possible dose for this substance is actually its lowest effective dose: 3-5mg?
For the first time, you have the option to explore this question for yourself using high-quality products that were specifically designed for microdosing. Secret Nature’s new Micro THC Tabs include federally legal microdoses of delta 8, delta 9, and THCV.
Each cannabinoid is offered in 2.5mg doses, and every Micro THC Tab is boosted with additional natural ingredients like mushrooms, adaptogens, matcha, and cannabis terpenes. Delicious, easy to chew, and delivering an ideal microdose of THC, Secret Nature Micro THC Tabs make microdosing cannabinoids accessible and professional.
Secret Nature Micro THC FAQ
There’s so much more to learn about Micro THC Tablets. Start your inquiries here, and contact a customer support specialist if you still have questions about this new Secret Nature product line:
1. What is nano THC?
The term “nano THC” usually refers to a technology called nano-encapsulation, which involves combining chemical compounds like cannabinoids with other substances that improve their absorption in the body. Nano THC doesn’t refer to taking a microdose of THC, though. While nano THC is a cannabis production technology, microdosing is a way of using THC.
2. Is nano THC the same as microdosing THC?
No, nano THC and micro THC are not the same thing. Nano THC is nanoencapsulated THC, which may absorb better when ingested orally. Micro THC, however, is THC that you microdose, or take in concentrations that are too small to provide this cannabinoid’s primary effects.
3. What is the lowest-THC edible?
It’s possible to find THC edibles online that contain less than 2.5mg THC per dose. When you microdose THC using an edible, however, you end up consuming a much higher ratio of THC-to-other-ingredients than you would if you’d eaten a normal edible. Make sure the ingredients included in your micro-THC edible are worth eating in large quantities.
4. What are the benefits of microdosing edibles for migraines?
Some people who suffer from chronic migraines have reported experiencing relief after microdosing THC. Using THC for migraines is nothing new, but with the revolution of microdose products, it’s finally possible for people who experience these frequent headaches to experience the benefits of THC without getting high.
5. Are the effects of low-dose edibles worthwhile?
If you’re using low-dose THC edibles to get high, then you’re definitely not embarking on a worthwhile approach. As long as you know the difference between microdosing THC and taking a normal dose, however, you might thoroughly enjoy the benefits of low-dose THC edibles. Just keep in mind that taking microdoses of THC in the form of an edible might not be the healthiest or most effective approach.
6. What are the effects of 1mg THC daily?
In 2020, a clinical study found that THC was useful to use even at doses as small as 1mg per day. Turning conventional cannabinoid wisdom on its head, it now appears that using THC in concentrations far less than the recommended dose nonetheless has the potential to deliver measurable benefits.
7. Should I try low-dose THC gummies?
If you decide to use THC in a low dose, a gummy might not be the best option. They’re packed with filler ingredients to keep the THC content below 0.3%, so a simpler alternative like a chewable tablet might be a better way to go.
