What is Cannabis Tolerance?

Understanding how cannabis can affect you based on how you consume it is important for making sure that you have a good experience. Taking edibles or smoking are both great ways to experience the full benefits that cannabis has to offer. Learn more about each to find out which is right for you, with the help of Strains Dispensary.

Growing Cannabis Plant

Developing a tolerance for cannabis over time is normal, especially if you are a habitual cannabis user. Cannabis tolerance occurs when your body gets used to the amount that you ingest. This occurs because regular ingestion of cannabis desensitizes the CB1 cannabinoid receptors in your brain over time.

Find out how taking a break from cannabis consumption can help you reset your tolerance so you can enjoy the effects of cannabis without having to up your dose, with the help of Strains Dispensary. 

Taking a T-Break 

A T-Break, formally known as a tolerance break, is the process of not using cannabis for a period of time to help reduce tolerance to THC and regain the effect it once had. T-Breaks can last anywhere from one day to one month or longer depending on how much you consume and how long it will take to fully leave your system. 

Your body’s endocannabinoid system breaks down natural, plant-based cannabinoids quickly so taking a one or two day break can reduce your cannabis tolerance significantly. Once your body gets rid of the THC traces and gets back to baseline levels, your tolerance level will be decreased. 

It’s important to note that if you rely on cannabis for medical reasons or for pain relief, you should consult your doctor before stopping cold turkey. 

Gradually Cut Back 

If you can’t skip a day of cannabis use because you rely on it medically, you can also try lowering your regular dose so that you are still getting it in your system and eventually your body will adjust to the lower dosage. 

Once your body fully adjusts, you can continue to microdose by only using small amounts of THC daily to help keep your tolerance lower.
