Cannabis experience

Therapeutic window[ˌθɛrəˈpjuːtɪk ˈwɪndəʊ]


The therapeutic window for cannabis use describes the spectrum of cannabis effects as consumed. It applies between the lowest effective dose and a dose that causes unfavorable side effects for the user. Because habitual consumers have a higher tolerance, they usually have a wider therapeutic window than newer consumers.
