Try a new strain

Easy enough, right? It’s not just THC levels that cause strains to have unique profiles and effects.

How to Lower Your Weed Tolerance Without a Break

October 19, 2020

The cannabinoid content in a strain, along with the terpene profile, and other factors, all contribute to the feeling you get from smoking weed. If you normally smoke the same strain, it’s a good idea to switch things up and try a new one, especially to change up your cannabis tolerance level.

You might find that different terpene profiles and cannabinoid contents contribute to a totally different feeling when you smoke weed.

Try a new consumption method

Sure, it’s not that exciting to switch from smoking marijuana joints throughout the day to tinctures, but it might just be the cannabis smoke break your body needs.

Not only will this switch up your cannabis routine, which can trick your body in its own ways, but you might find that you get more high from another method. Biology, lifestyle, and other factors all contribute to how cannabis affects users who eat or take it sublingually.

So next time you’re feeling like you need to take a tolerance break, reach for a different type of THC bud. You may find that all you need to lower your weed tolerance is to shake up the way you get your daily weed high.

Switch from smoking to vaping dry herbs

If you tend to smoke weed regularly and develop a tolerance, you just might get more bang for your buck and your high if you opt to vape weed instead. You don’t need to switch to THC oils, either. You simply need to get a dry herb vaporizer that will allow you to bring your herbs to a high enough temperature to produce a vapor, but low enough to not cause combustion.

The end result is that more of your weed will go towards getting you high. When you smoke cannabis, some of the active compounds get destroyed in the process. When you vape, the temperature never gets high enough to burn off any of the cannabinoids, allowing you to inhale all of the good stuff and get high.

Another benefit to vaping dry herbs? AVB. AVB stands for Already Vaped Bud and it can be used to make edibles, taking your bud even further.

Give microdosing a try

Always high? Microdosing THC may not seem like the right move if your tolerance is already super high, but it just might be the best thing you do to reset your body without taking a break.

Microdosing is where you consume a very small amount of a drug to get the positive effects. Because you are consuming such a small amount, many of the other effects are muted. This includes intoxication.

If you want to lower your tolerance without taking a break fully, microdosing could be the perfect THC compromise. This is especially true if you use cannabis to relax or combat stress or anxiety. You’ll still get some benefits, you just won’t be super high from the cannabis.

Taking on this method will also help in more ways than one. Not only will this lower your tolerance, but it will also save you money in the long run. You will be using far less weed, which will in turn keep money in your wallet, and exercise your body and mind to get more with less. Your receptors will get used to the lower amount, and adjust your tolerance accordingly.

Try it for a few days or a week. Just take a hit of cannabis when you’d normally smoke a whole joint. See what you feel like when you take a break from your normal THC consumption use. Once enough time has passed and you’ve consistently smoked less cannabis, smoking a regular amount of THC is sure to get you higher than before.

Break up your routine

Do you normally wake up and bake? That’s a recipe for quickly building a high tolerance. You can combat it by switching up your cannabis routine, and take a tolerance break.

This is especially useful if you’re a creature of habit. If you tend to smoke cannabis at the same time every day, the act of switching up the time can be enough to influence your high, and lower your marijuana tolerance.

Try waiting past the normal time you smoke marijuana before indulging. You can also change the room you’re in, go for a walk instead, or just do anything out of your regular routine to help lower your THC tolerance.

Have you ever tried exercising while high? Does this lower your tolerance? Or does sweating it out on the elliptical only raise your tolerance? If it lowers your tolerance, then get your body in the gym immediately! What about doing yoga? Does saying Ohm lower your tolerance? If so, then get your butt on that mat stat!

All of this may not necessarily change your tolerance, but it can influence the cannabis experience. You may just need to shake things up and change your ways, without taking a break!

Take longer breaks in between smokes

This may seem obvious, but if you’re smoking cannabis 10 times a day, cutting that down to five will help with your tolerance break.

Are you used to loading up a cannabis bowl every hour and taking a puff? It’s a good time to be more present and set good THC boundaries for yourself, so a tolerance break doesn’t become part of your every day routine.

It’s easy, too. Just wait two hours instead of one. This will cut your marijuana consumption down without interfering with your regular thc routine. Plus, you may find that you don’t even need to take that many hits of marijuana to feel the body receptors start to do their part. It’s just become a habit.

Eat mangoes

Weird, right? Using mangoes to improve a THC high is nothing new, though. This cannabis tip has been around for ages.

Whether it is truly effective or not is up for debate, but anecdotal evidence tells us that many people have found it to work. Additionally, a study found that myrcene, a popular cannabis terpene, is responsible for the classic “couchlock” we know from marijuana.

Mangoes are loaded with the terpene myrcene. Eating them before getting high is suggested to increase the effects.

Final thoughts on how to lower weed tolerance without a break

You want to smoke less weed but get higher. It’s a totally attainable goal, but it can be difficult to lower your tolerance if you’ve been a heavy weed smoker for a while.

Make sure to evaluate why your weed tolerance is so high in the first place. Do you just enjoy smoking cannabis a lot or are you using the cannabis as an escape from everyday life? It’s important to address the underlying causes that may lead you to consume too much cannabis in the first place.

If all else fails, take a marijuana tolerance break. Just a few days should do the trick to reset your cannabis tolerance. From there, you can try the tips we offered to help you stay on track.
