Effortless Dosing with FSHO



AUTHOR Nora Lenhardt

Grams, milligrams, THC… huh? Get the gist on dosing liquid extracts and learn how FSHO makes it easier than ever.

Whether looking to manage chronic pain, relax, or simply surrender to a different state of mind, liquid cannabis extracts are a convenient, versatile way to do so. When it comes to dosing liquid extracts, however, many remain mystified. Our Full Spectrum Hash Oil (FSHO for short) dispenser makes it practically foolproof, but let’s first delve into a bit of the math behind the magic.

Demystify the THC in a dose.

Any extract you buy (Aeriz or otherwise) is labeled with the THC percentage on the packaging. This percentage is per the weight of the product, which is generally one gram. Because we know that one gram equals 1,000 milligrams, we can convert the THC percentage to milligrams by multiplying the THC percentage (converted to a decimal) by 1,000. Your answer is the milligrams of THC within the entire gram of the extract.

From there, you can figure out how much THC is in, say, a 10-milligram dose of the extract by multiplying the milligrams of THC (the math we just did above) by .010. That number is the amount of THC in a 10-milligram dose of the product.

We can easily put our learnings to practice with our FSHO. While it’s strain-specific and offered in many fan-favorites, we will use Jack Herer here. Per the packaging, its THC content is 78.71% for the one-gram twist dispenser. So, we multiply the THC% by 1,000 (again, the number of milligrams in one gram) and deduce that there is a total of 787.1 milligrams of THC within the whole gram. Nodding along? Cool, now to the dosing…

When you twist the top, riveted portion of the FSHO dispenser clockwise, a plunger extends from the tip (like a retractable pen), revealing a series of incremental black lines. One black line is equal to 55 milligrams (or .055 grams) of extract. To figure out how much THC is in that 55-milligram measurement, multiply the total milligrams of THC (roughly 787) by .055, and voilà – approximately 43 milligrams of THC per “dose.”

Each black line on the right side of the dispenser is equal to 55 mg.

TL;DR – when you press the plunger down, you’ll be dispensing 43 milligrams of THC. If you want to forego arithmetic altogether, see our helpful FSHO dosage calculator that does the figuring for you.

In addition to easy dosing, FSHO is fully activated and can be enjoyed in any form – smoke it, dab it, vape it, or add it to food and beverages. No temperature gauging or fancy equipment needed – the high is all your hands.

Clarify your dose.

If you are new to extracts, 5-10 milligrams of THC is generally ideal. In the case above, 43 milligrams of THC from the FSHO dispenser would be on the high side for beginners. For ultra-precise dosing, consider weighing with a milligram-grade scale. If that’s not handy, an extract the size of half a grain to a full grain of rice is a good point of reference.

Starting slow – and treading lightly – is the name of the game. You can always consume more (wait at least an hour before doing so) but you cannot go backwards. Remember, everyone’s endocannabinoid system is different; figuring out how much THC you are consuming in one dose and evaluating your body’s response will lead you to that green pasture of bliss.
