Regular cannabis dosage not working for you? Before you go and beat up your supplier for giving you a bad bud, wait a minute. Are you sure it’s the fault of your marijuana bud? Or is it your own body, the culprit? It might be the latter!

If you are consuming cannabis for a long time, medical marijuana doctors say there is a pretty high chance of your body becoming resistant to the herb. In this case, unless you consume more, you do not feel its effects. The phenomenon is what we call marijuana tolerance.

A marijuana tolerance break, though, can be a good solution here. It’s the practice in which you stop consuming cannabis altogether in order to detoxicate your body. And this helps you lower your body resistance toward the herb.

As you can imagine now, taking a tolerance break can be quite a task. After all, it’s been a long time since you got your medical marijuana recommendation. And stopping the use of the herb abruptly surely isn’t gonna be easy. But there are a few tips that can help you make it happen. Let’s learn about them.

Be Ready- Understand it Can be Difficult

You probably remember telling yourself at the beginning of your marijuana journey that you can quit whenever you want. Well, that’s still true. But only if you have willpower. If you think taking a cannabis tolerance break would be easy, you’re badly mistaken, my friend. You’ll have to be strong.

Medical marijuana doctors say that most people fail in their tolerance break in the first 24 hours only. It’s because they take it lightly. And when they get struck hard on the face by the withdrawal symptoms, they give in. You surely don’t want some of this sort happening to you, right?

Well, in that case, you need to take the task seriously. Make sure you have a plan and you’re sticking to it. It can be tough, no doubt. But whenever you feel like giving up, remember why you are doing it.

Get Rid of Every Last Bit of Your Cannabis

You may think you can just keep a little bit of your bud in a corner closet for the time when you resume your cannabis journey. But guess what? Your mind’s not gonna forget about it. And when the temptation will strike, it will definitely command your feet to that corner.

Wanna avoid this? Get rid of all your cannabis beforehand. No matter if you have to smoke it all or wash it down the drain, get empty. Do it, and you’ll thank me later for saving you from a feeling of guilt.

Find Something to Distract Yourself

If you plan on taking a tolerance break, you definitely need something to distract yourself. This is especially important if you’re used to consuming it at a particular time. 

As at that particular time, smoking cannabis has been your primary activity, your psych is used to it. And it will surely crave for it. For this to not happen, you’ll have to provide your mind with something else. You may try a new hobby, watch a TV show, go to movies, or spend that time with your family or friends. Try avoiding an idle streak, as it may lead to cravings and thus a break in your tolerance break.


Now, exercising is something that can significantly enhance your cannabis tolerance break efforts. As you know, even in general, doctors suggest keeping yourself active and moving. But when you take a tolerance break, it becomes even more important. There are two reasons for this. First of all, exercising can help you get the THC remains in your system out quickly. This speeds up your tolerance recovery. Secondly, it promotes the release of serotonin and dopamine in your brain, which helps you make up for the absence of THC. You probably have heard about a runner’s high. You never know, you may replace your cannabis buzz with that.

Taking a cannabis tolerance break can surely be a difficult task. But if you follow the above tips, you can rest assured of your success.
