How do you properly assess the effects of cannabis on yourself and how do you keep a use journal?

The purpose of taking a good self-assessment is to learn more about yourself during treatment with medical cannabis. This is also helpful in establishing the ideal dosage for you.

Keeping a consumption journal will allow you to keep essential information on the effects that the selected product has on you and will allow you, from time to time, to gather useful information to put you on the path of the adequate products according to the elements that you will have entered in your journal.


To properly assess the effect of cannabis on yourself, it is important to take the time to assess how you feel BEFORE you use cannabis. The BEFORE assessment provides a starting point for assessing the effects of cannabis on yourself. Regardless of the symptoms you wish to alleviate with cannabis, there are 3 main aspects to consider in the self-assessment.

First, close your eyes and focus on yourself, on what you are feeling. Choose a quiet place, if possible.

First, take long, deep breaths. Breathe in, breathe out and repeat a few times. Then rate the ease of your BREATHING on a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being poor and 10 being perfectly calm and fluid.
Then focus on your body, your limbs, the sensations that run through them. Rate the COMFORT OF YOUR BODY, how comfortable you feel, on a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being poor and 10 being perfect well-being.

Finally, the last part of the self-evaluation, your mood. Focus on your mood and thoughts. Are they positive and free-flowing or are they more negative, sad, or focused on the same aspect? Rate your MOOD, your ability to feel appreciation on a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being poor and 10 being perfectly free and appreciative.

This is the basis of your preliminary evaluation. You will then repeat this assessment after your consumption to evaluate how your consumption has or has not improved these parameters that you have assessed.

Obviously, to keep a good consumption journal, some additional information will allow you to see what works and what doesn’t.
So keep the following information in your journal:

– The strain of the product if you take dried flower and spray or inhale it through smoke.
– The type of product it is. Tincture, oil, edible, dried flowers, etc?
– The concentration of different cannabinoids that the product you have chosen contains. THC, CBD, but it can be interesting to add the others if they are available, such as CBG, CBC, CBN, etc.
– The terpene profile of the product, if available.
– The dose you took. If you smoked or vaporized, indicate the number of puffs. If it is a type of product where the amount of mg is measurable, do the calculation and indicate the dose you took.
– Save space for comments, as you may want to add some relevant information (about taste, for example).

Here you go, my dear Kuzens! I hope you find this information helpful in keeping track of your treatment and taking control of your own health and well-being.

Take care of yourself, at least every day!
