Tolerance BreaksEverything You Need to Know

Do you find that you’re having to smoke way too much weed to get high? Having to do so can suck all of the enjoyment out of the experience while simultaneously burning a serious hole in your wallet. If you find yourself in this position, you should perhaps consider taking a short tolerance break.

What Exactly is a Tolerance Break and how Long Should it Last?

As you consistently smoke more and more weed on a day-to-day basis, your body will slowly but surely build up a tolerance to cannabinoids. Taking a short tolerance break from smoking will help bring your tolerance levels down, allowing you to get schoolgirl stoned on smaller amounts of weed. Your tolerance break should last at least three days; however, a full week is ideal. If you’re a fairly heavy smoker, you may want to consider laying off the joints for up to two weeks – this is how long it takes for THC to be removed from your body. The amount of time your body requires to detox can vary according to a number of factors including your age, diet and how regularly you exercise.

Keep Yourself Occupied

You may well experience a few withdrawal-like symptoms whilst on your break. These aren’t the type of frightening withdrawals that opiate users typically go through. At worst you may find yourself becoming slightly more irritable while your appetite and sleeping patterns can also change a bit. You can work around these withdrawals by keeping yourself occupied. Start running, head to the gym, go out with your friends – just don’t sit at home wishing that you’d rather be high.

The important thing to remember when taking your tolerance break is that marijuana offers you the opportunity to experience life in a different way; you should never exist to simply get high. Set yourself goals, save a bit of cash and reward yourself by getting monstrously high when your tolerance break ends.
