5 Tips To Help You Get Through A Tolerance Break

Whether you can't access cannabis or want to increase your tolerance, here's how to get through a t-break easily.

THC withdrawal is real. When your body is accustomed to using this cannabinoid frequently, cutting it out of your routine can be challenging. 

Although, some have it easier than others. One stoner’s T-break might be effortless, while someone else’s could be dreadful. For whatever reason you’re taking a T-break, we’ll help you make it as easy as possible. 

It’s worth noting that THC withdrawal is at its worst during the first 3-4 days without cannabis. After that, each day becomes easier. Hold on, have faith, and follow these tips below to help you get through a tolerance break.

Set Goals

If your T-break is voluntary, consider setting goals for how long you want to avoid THC. This is quite an easy tip, but don’t overlook it, as setting and reaching goals will help you feel a sense of accomplishment.

Tell your friends about your lifestyle change and encourage them to help you reach your goals. You don’t have to fight through your T-break solo, even when you’re the only one doing it.

Replace Your Ritual With Something Beneficial

Cannabis users adore their rituals. You can even have a ritual without knowing it. During those times when you feel it’s the perfect opportunity to smoke some weed, replace your consumption with something beneficial like a new hobby. 

It’s ideal to find something that relieves stress and anxiety and makes you feel accomplished. See below for some ideas:

  • Sketching, drawing, coloring, or painting
  • Journaling
  • Meditating
  • Yoga
  • Stretching
  • A niche hobby that means something to you


Nobody wants to be told to exercise, but avoiding this tip during your tolerance break isn’t recommended.

We’re not saying to hit the gym five days a week, but incorporating exercises into your daily routine can help your body produce dopamine and serotonin, which you’d normally find in THC.

Exercise can even mean having sex. Anything that gets you active and gets your blood pumping is ideal. Afterward, dopamine and serotonin will help you feel accomplished, happy, and ready to relax.

Use Melatonin & Magnesium

The top issue that plagues former tokers is getting to sleep at night without cannabis. During the first week of a tolerance break, falling asleep can seem impossible.

The racing thoughts, anxiety, and frantic energy can be too difficult to tame on your own. We suggest using both melatonin and magnesium to help you get some quality shut-eye. Using both these supplements can promote better quality sleep without causing unwanted side effects the following morning.


CBD is federally legal in the United States and quickly gaining legal status in various parts of the world.

If the reason you’re taking a tolerance break is that you can’t access THC on vacation in a different country, it may be challenging to find a reputable source for CBD. You may be able to bring CBD with you, depending on the local and federal laws of where you’re going to and from.

If your T-break is voluntary, CBD can be incredibly beneficial. For one thing, it can eliminate the stress, anxiety, insomnia, and cravings associated with THC withdrawal. Secondly, CBD is not psychoactive and doesn’t produce a high, so you’re not cheating.

Decreasing anxiety and stress with CBD can help your appetite return to normal. It can help you get a good night’s sleep and go about your day without craving THC.
