THC tolerance is real. A study in the Journal of Neuroscience and Biobehavioral Reviews regarding just this recently came to light. The study was a piece of scientific literature that looked at the effects of THC and consumer tolerance. More than a thousand studies came in to play and within these studies, researchers found 36 studies focusing in some form on the subject of THC and tolerance.
Breaking the research down into “regular users” and “non-regular users” of cannabis, the paper also explored the evidence on whether those two groups displayed a different tolerance to cannabis.
“Cannabis has less prominent or no eﬀects on a number of behavioural and physiological measures in regular users compared to non-regular users…. the behavioural and physiological eﬀects of cannabis lessen over repeated exposure and often become no longer distinguishable from placebo.”
Anyone who has smoked for an extended period can you tell you without a doubt you build up a tolerance to it.
Tolerance is Real – Here’s How to Deal
Perhaps if science and medicine quit believing that they know everything, including what is good for us, they might see that yes, you can develop a tolerance to THC. This is a great reason why many patients with legal access to medical cannabis are able to apply for higher prescription amounts or increased plant counts.
This means their caregiver or appointed grower can produce higher amounts of medicine. For those allowed to have home grows, they can increase the amount they grow at home for making things like RSO and tinctures.
