What does “Milligrams” mean?

The universally understood metric system is used for measuring dosages of medication, so it makes sense for cannabis to be measured similarly for consumers' convenience. Most cannabis products such as tinctures, edibles, and chews are measured in milligrams (mg). Most of these products contain 5-10mg of THC, CBD, or both, which allows for users to dose appropriately.

Example usage:

“Edibles affect me much more strongly than flower, so I rarely eat anything over 10 milligrams.”
