    Hello! I am faced with a problem im sure we have all suffered from... High tolerance.
    I personally utilise our favorite plant to avoid filling my prescriptions to both opiates AND barbituates in prohibition land. The mrs is the same.
    So needless to say a traditional tolerance break is a no go. I've heard of maintenance routines that involve a minimized use and non-routine use for a few days. Tbat sounds much more feasible.
    Has anyone tried this? Did it help?
    Im not expecting to fully reset, but lowering would help alot.

    I find having access to multiple strains seems to hold my tolerances in check, as long as I'm switching it up, I don't seem to have an issue. 4 or more, that way it can be several days before getting back to the same cannabinoid makeup.

    Also combining edibles into my day seems to let me really stretch between smoking.

    If they're all heavy indica that might be an issue.

    Hey Hypa! I can help here.

    Funny thing, but believe it or not one of my work roles is substance use counselling. What you are describing is called a harm reduction technique. And yes, it works. I have seen people who drank (or whatever) so much that they couldn't keep a job for more than a day get their lives back in order, without quitting their habit.

    First, take a log of when and how much you use. While you are at it, you can note any triggers such as mood, hunger, pain, whatever, that preceded your desire to use. In a short while you will see your patterns of use.
    Then, sit down with a rational mind and work out a schedule that is a bit different times, a bit less frequent and a bit lower dose and do that for a while. After a a few days or weeks you can modify the pattern once more, so it is again less frequent and lower. Eventually you will get down to a manageable amount that still takes care of your symptoms. Some people can make bigger incremental changes, some people can make smaller ones. You know yourself the best.

    Like Arthur, I make sure I have a variety to choose from... I have 5-6 strains in my stash box at any time and many more in storage. Every week I switch the box up a bit, and always have a range of effects to select from.

    Changing it up has allowed me to keep my personal daily use to less than 200mg over the last 6 or so years. 250+ is still possible on weekends and holidays ;)
    Considering that back in the day I was smoking over an ounce per month, so I think I am doing pretty good. That same ounce will now last me 3 months and I still get very high.

    I also switch to tincture or smoke for a few days every once in a while but tolerance to tincture builds quickly for me.

    Hope this info is useful. Go ahead, ask any questions, or even a pm if you want.

    You could also vape some cbd in between thc ingestion. It should help with stretching the time between thc intake.

    I am working against a 58 year long tolerance curve. most of that time was strictly for enjoyment. over the last 10 years its for medical reasons as well. had a fight with cancer and won.:thumbsup:
    what I do is 1 stay away from making concentrates, 2 when I feel bud is not doing the trick, I start up smoking sweet leaf. after two or three days of sweet leaf , I will go back to bud and it has regained the effect I want. moderation is a good thing.:d5: otherwise we would all be on opioids :smokeout:

    I do this too and don't have tolerance issues while staying away from concentrated and mostly vaping higher cbd strains.

    I made some cannabis coconut oil. I drop a teaspoon and a half every now and then and it really takes the edge off. I plan to try making RSO next.

    Adding the bit of edible to my day really helped. It’s a different high for sure, for me it seems to have an anti-inflammatory effect and is really helping with arthritis and muscle aches.

    In the future I’ll be looking into higher THC strains, since that high is what I love. And I’m hoping the quality of the pot I’m growing keeps improving.
