About Marijuana Tolerance Breaks

Special shoutout to these great experts from Utah having an adult and science based conversation about marijuana and tolerance breaks.

Do you find yourself using more and more cannabis to achieve the same medicinal effect that smaller doses once gave you?

There is a simple way to fix it! Living cannabis-free for at least 48-hours may seem daunting, but this tolerance break or “t-break” can have incredible rewards.

In this episode of Discover Marijuana, Tim, Kylee, and Blake go over the reasons for tolerance breaks, how often they should be taken, and the biochemistry of tolerances to chemicals like THC.

Resetting your tolerance gives you the chance to find your “just right” dose, or the minimum effective dose to treat your condition.

It’s also a great way to cut back on cannabis spending! If you’re serious about maximizing the benefits of your next t-break, follow the “Reset Your Tolerance” guide at https://utahmarijuana.org/guides

Is It Okay To Recommend Marijuana?

Recently a new study came out that many pro-marijuana activists seem to be bragging about — legalization doesn’t necessarily increase marijuana use in those states.

As it turns out people have already been smoking the ganja without Uncle Sam’s approval — but why is it a win that usage didn’t increase?

It’s clear that the stigma of marijuana is still dominating the vibes of even regular weed users. You may be a regular pot smoker yourself — so how inclined are you to recommend weed to someone who doesn’t partake?

People recommend all sorts of of things including cocktails and bars that are still open to..you know.. drink and smoke tobacco recreationally. Gambling ads are everywhere and most bars have gambling included two double down on your indulges.

The only people who shouldn’t be getting recommendations about marijuana are children. Yet, the average age of your first time marijuana smoker always seems to be way under 18.

Why is that? Maybe it is because of the climate that the marijuana prohibition has created in the first place. How likely are you to recommend something to someone when it might get you arrested or hurt your chances to make it into a school or job of your choice?

These aren’t the consequences of weed we’re talking about here. These are the consequences of the prohibition.

I hope future pro-marijuana projects don’t keep falling into the stigma of thinking increased numbers of pot usage after legalization is a bad thing.

One day we’re going to need people to be able to make a recommendation without that stigma. Businesses are made to grow and expanding numbers often defines success.

TED-Ed: Is marijuana bad for your brain?

Explore how marijuana’s two main active compounds, THC and CBD, affect your brain and body, and what risk factors to watch out for.

In 1970, marijuana was classified as a schedule 1 drug in the United States: the strictest designation possible, meaning it was completely illegal and had no recognized medical uses.

Today, marijuana’s therapeutic benefits are widely acknowledged, but a growing recognition for its medical value doesn’t answer the question: is recreational marijuana use bad for your brain?
