if you regularly utilize thc, you’ve probably heard the term “tolerance break.” what is a tolerance break and how can cbd support you? we’ve got all the info so you can make the best decisions for you— to support your health and wellness!

taking a tolerance break is a personal decision and can be due to a variety of reasons— perhaps you are (quite literally) building up a tolerance to thc or maybe you smoke cannabis and want to transition to another form to give your lungs a break. whatever your reason is, cbd can be a helpful tool to help you through the transition and beyond!

cbd is the most widely used cannabinoid other than thc and interacts with the body differently in that it is non-psychoactive, meaning that it doesn’t give users the feeling of being “high.” cbd has a wide array of health benefits including; relieving pain, easing anxiety, soothing depression, calming inflammation, and more. many of these benefits are what might bring a person to using thc, so bringing cbd into your wellness routine (especially during a tolerance break) can ease the transition.

studies show that cbd can be very helpful when taking a break from thc. cbd is helpful for restoring balance to the endocannabinoid system (ecs), the body, and the brain. these benefits can help ease withdrawal symptoms that can occur from lack of thc.

the two cannabinoids affect the brain’s cannabinoid receptors in different ways. “the ecs is a transmitter system that cannabis compounds explicitly interact with, though its primary purpose is to regulate and control our bodily functions,” (high there). there are only two types of cannabinoid receptors, cb1 and cb2— of which cb1 receptors are the only ones that cause the feeling of being “high” associated with cannabis. thc and cbd bind to the cb1 receptors differently— when cbd binds to them, they don’t lose sensitivity. research studies show that people who consume cbd continually are unlikely to build a tolerance to it’s beneficial effects.

furthermore, all of our cbd herbal and deep series tinctures contain potent herbs called adaptogens. adaptogens are some of the the best way to balance the daily stress our bodies experience— both physically and mentally. adaptogenic herbs, also known as adaptogens, are substances that enhance your ability to resist stress, anxiety, trauma and fatigue – slowly and gently. they’re called adaptogens because of their unique ability to “adapt” their function according to your body’s specific needs and help keep your body in a state of homeostasis. they contain biologically active compounds, including phytochemicals, that can benefit the body. adaptogens combined with cbd, when used regularly can have lasting health benefits.
