Yo, what’s good? My name is Dan and I’m here to talk about something that every seasoned smoker has faced at some point – not being able to achieve a high. It’s a scary thought, but it can happen. Your body becomes more tolerant to the cannabinoids you inhale over time, and you won’t experience the effects as much as you used to.
But don’t worry, I’ve got your back. In this article, I’m gonna break down some methods that can help you feel that high again. And trust me, you will get to feel the effects of marijuana once more.
Method 1 – Detox
Now, I know what you’re thinking. “Detox? That sounds like no fun.” But trust me, it’s necessary to once again reap cannabis’ rewards. When no outside cannabinoids enter the body, internal homeostasis develops. This decreases a tolerant cannabis consumer’s tolerance once more, making it feel like the early days.
It can take up to 30 days to flush the body of cannabinoids, but don’t worry, you don’t have to completely abstain for an entire month. Each individual detoxes differently, and it may only take a week for some. At the end of the day, listen to your body and decide what’s best. But for the best results, refrain from smoking for at least a week.
Drinking lots of water and increasing physical activity can also speed up the detoxification process. Exercise is great because it releases endorphins which keep your brain active and satisfied, especially if you’re craving cannabis.
Method 2 – Mango Power
You read that right – mangos can actually affect the power of the high you experience! They contain a high level of myrcene, which is one of the most abundant terpenes in cannabis and other fruits. When eaten before smoking, myrcene goes straight into the bloodstream and interacts with the THC, creating a more intense and longer-lasting high.
You can consume a mango before and after smoking, but beforehand is best. Metabolisms can impact this method, so those who quickly metabolize substances may need to consume a couple of mangos just before smoking. Those with a slow metabolism may only need one.
Not only do mangos impact your high, but they also help calm down the munchies, serving as a healthy alternative to other snacks.
Method 3 – Change Your Habits
It’s easy to get stuck in a routine with your favorite strain or product. But switching things up can actually help lessen tolerance levels. You can try smoking from different devices like bongs, vapes, pipes, one-hitters, or even edibles and concentrates.
Edibles and oils often have higher CBD levels than THC, so make sure to find ones with high THC levels if you want to get high. Vaping is a great alternative to smoking, and it’s discreet too. Bongs are also a popular choice for cannabis connoisseurs.
One-hitters are great for discretion and convenience, but they may not be enough for heavy smokers used to taking massive bong rips. And if you’re into cooking, cannabis baked goods are the way to go.
Method 4 – Variety
If you’re new to cannabis, you may be smoking poorly-grown strains that don’t produce a satisfying high. For experienced smokers, it’s easy to get stuck in a rut with your favorite strain. Increasing potency or trying new strains with differing terpenes can help ensure you’re experiencing the maximum impact.
For instance, Jack Herer has high amounts of the terpene terpinolene, whereas Girl Scout Cookies contains high levels of caryophyllene. Smoking strains with a variety of terpenes can help achieve the best possible high.
The Bottom Line
Don’t worry if you can’t get high anymore – it happens to the best of us. Try some of these methods out and see what works for you. Everyone’s body is different, so find what feels best for you. And most importantly, stay safe and have fun!
