Dubbed the Djot Dispenser, the device measures cannabis concentrates in 1 mg intervals, allowing consumers to easily and accurately add cannabis to drinks.

The company has also launched accompanying “dPods,” formulated with cannabis oils intended to lead to rest and relaxation or offer energetic effects.

“The accompanying dPods are formulated to cater to everyone’s unique needs throughout the day: a boost between meetings or a relaxing remedy that becomes an evening ritual,” Djot co-founder and president Arjen Melis assures in a company statement.

To use the device, consumers insert the dPod, set the desired dose and dispense the concentrate into any beverage.

The product is among the first from the company that intends to offer more unique health and wellness solutions.

Other cannabis companies, like Dosist, have also focused on precise dosing.

In 2019, the company launched Dose Dial, peppermint flavoured tablets sold in packs of 30 that contain 3.7 mg of THC each.

The dissolvable tablets are absorbed by the process of sublingual consumption (under the tongue), which the company reported ensures a consistent amount of cannabis makes it into the bloodstream each time.

A 2020 study out of Israel found that microdoses of THC can act as an effective pain reliever without stimulating many of the common side-effects that come with consuming cannabis.

The results of a clinical trial, which measured levels of pain relief, cognitive functions, psychoactivity and THC levels present in the blood, were published in the European Journal of Pain.

The study authors concluded the trial demonstrated, for the first time, that “the delivery of selective, significantly low and precise therapeutic single doses of inhaled THC demonstrates an analgesic effect.”

“It allows patients to reach the optimum balance between symptom relief and controlled side-effects, enabling patients to regain their quality of life,” the authors wrote.
