THC Tolerance Break: Understanding and Implementing a Reset from THC

THC Tolerance Break: Understanding and Implementing a Reset from THC

When consuming Cannabis we all need a reset. Its time for a T break. Now lets take a look at why it is important for you (and your wallet)

Ever feel like your beloved green isn't hitting the same sweet spot as it used to? Welcome to the club! It's time we chat about a tolerance break. Now lets take a look at why a T Break is important for you (and your wallet)


Take a T-Break to Lower Your High Cannabis Tolerance

When you use cannabis a lot your CB1R receptors get used to THC… As a result they don't respond as strongly anymore, which means you might not feel the effects as much. The best way to reset your receptors are to take a T Break.

Imagine your brain's CB1R receptors as spots where THC attaches. Regular cannabis use makes these less responsive. A break from cannabis 'resets' these receptors, making them more sensitive again. So, you'll need less cannabis to feel the same effects after the break, as your body's response to THC is refreshed.


So what can you expect from a T break.

It takes approximately 3 weeks for THC to leave your system. So your T break should be at least 21 days long.

So depending on your lifestyle and how much you consume your break should be tailored to suit! 

Expect these common symptoms that include Irritability, Mood changes, Sleep difficulties, Decreased appetite, Cravings and Restlessness.


Why take a T Break?

  • Increased Tolerance: Regular use can impact the effects of THC, meaning you will need more for the same effects.
  • Boosting Mental Clarity: A rest from THC can sharpen focus and mental acuity.
  • Promoting Holistic Wellness: Regular breaks align with a responsible lifestyle, keeping your THC usage both enjoyable and beneficial.
  • Economic Efficiency: Lowering your tolerance can mean less consumption, making your cannabis journey more cost-effective.

During Your T-break

  •  Monitor any Personal Changes: Keep a record/diary to track mood, health, or general well-being.
  • Lean on Social Support: Share your intentions with friends or family, especially those who understand your cannabis use.
