What’s a normal amount of cannabis to smoke? My tolerance is through the roof since these shelter-in-places started. Should I be concerned?
Dear, Lungs McGee,
I am generally in favor of people being more tolerant of all sorts of things, especially in these uncertain and fractious times. However, when it comes to cannabis use, too much tolerance is… not so great. Not only is it expensive, it’s boring and time-consuming.
“No one wants to hear you complaining or bragging about how you can’t get high from just one blunt.”
No one wants to hear you complaining or bragging about how you can’t get high from just one blunt. Why should you need four bong hits to start the day when one could get the job done? If you find yourself smoking more just to feel the same high, and you don’t want to spend all of your money on dabs and shatter, it is definitely time for you to take a “tolerance break”.
Tolerance breaks are easy: Just stop smoking for a while. Cannabis isn’t physically addictive, so there shouldn’t be many withdrawal symptoms. And there are upsides: Your dreams will be more vivid and you will probably save money on munchies.
