So you want to take a weed tolerance break? Or as some people call it, an “herbal holiday.” Good for you! Taking a break demonstrates self-discipline and can help prevent you from becoming overly reliant on cannabis. Plus, it doesn’t take long to recalibrate your system to the point where you’ll need a lot less cannabis to achieve the same effects you used to. For most people, that can be as few as 72 hours.
Keep in mind, however, that taking a weed tolerance break is not always easy. With some proper planning, however, your chances of success will increase dramatically.
Here’s a simple 3-step plan to help you with your herbal holiday.
Before you embark on your weed tolerance break, you need a plan. As they say, “failing to plan is planning to fail.”
First, be clear about why you think you need a tolerance break. Are you smoking too much? Has your tolerance increased so much that cannabis doesn’t affect you like it once did? Or, do you just want to see if you can take a break without missing it much? There’s no real right or wrong reason. Most reasons are valid, but be clear with your purpose and motivation for taking the break. Write it down and review it daily to remind yourself.
Beyond identifying your reason for taking a break, write out a short plan, leading with your reason (or reasons) for taking a break. The plan doesn’t need to be lengthy. In fact, the shorter, the better. As long as you address the key points, a paragraph or two is fine. Bullet points work great!
Your plan doesn’t need to consist of much. You can follow these bullet points to create it:
Obviously, you don’t want a bunch of cannabis laying around your house if you’re trying to take a break, so do yourself a favor — get rid of it! Gifting it to friends is probably the best idea. Not only can you tell them why you’re giving it to them — you’re taking a tolerance break — you can let them know you won’t be partaking for awhile (which is Step 3). They’ll thank you for the gift and be more likely to respect your boundaries.
If you keep your stash out of sight, it will more likely to be out of mind. And, that will make it a lot easier.
If you like to get high with your buddies, you’ve got to tell them you’re taking a break. Explain why and that it’s only a temporary. You’re giving yourself a “weed tolerance break” or an “herbal holiday.” Explain the benefits if you’d like. By at explaining your intentions and reasons, they’ll be more likely to respect your boundaries. Who knows? Maybe they’ll even want to join you.
Congrats! You’re well on your way to taking a successful weed tolerance break. It may not be easy, but just keep your eye on the prize. And, remember, you don’t need to take a super long break (unless you want to).
Some final advice:
There you go! You’re now well on your way to a successful weed tolerance break.
