How I Reduced My Cannabis Tolerance With More Cannabis

IMG_0880

I once again have access to raw cannabis. Today is day 9 back on it and I am feeling like a new person. I have humbly been reminded about the things that happen to me when I eat raw cannabis leaf and/or flower.

Firstly, eating and juicing raw cannabis changes my tolerance to THC. Before raw cannabis I could easily consume one or two (or more) medibles and vaporize repeatedly through the day without feeling like I’ve ever had too much or like I couldn’t handle more. I don’t seem to have a cannabis ‘off button’. After the first few days on raw cannabis and I suddenly have an ‘off button’. On Friday, and many consecutive days before that, I had needed 3 medible doses through the day but on Saturday eating one medible in the morning would now last me well into the evening.

By Tuesday I stopped taking all forms of THC or CBD infused medibles. I just didn’t seem to need them because my inflammation and body pain has been reduced so much. That was already 6 days ago.

I’m still vaping but even that has been reduced. During the first few days of adding fresh cannabis leaves to my smoothies, vaporizing felt like a new experience. It was like I was using marijuana for the first time and very little made me high. One week later and that has adjusted some, my tolerance has gone back up enough that I don’t feel super high, I feel just right. I still don’t need to use that much though.

Something else that is super exciting is that I’ve noticed my thinking patterns are different. Depression is more a feeling of the past, I can think more clearly, and I find myself thinking more positively about everything. It feels very empowering.

Next, I am working on increasing my activity. The stiffness in my joints and my back pain has been reduced so much that moving and exercise feel good again. I am excited to get after my strength and balance training with a brain that is able to communicate better messages to my nervous system. Let this little yogi fly.

May the current bounty of raw cannabis in my life continue so I can keep feeling this good.

  1. any idea what variety of cannabis you are taking? as far as exercise is concerned start slow, yoga is probably a great way to start. I keep a journal in excel of my daily exercise to keep me motivated. So far since Oct. 17 I have walked over 100 miles. Shooting for 300+ miles this year. Been doing this since Oct. 2011 and have logged over 500 miles walking among other activities like billiards, trying to ski, hiking, biking, etc. Just makes me feel better know exactly what I do to keep my body strong, which in turn helps my mind. Good Luck I am happy knowing you are doing well!

  2. Hi Herb! Lately I have been feasting on some yummy Girl Scout Cookie. I dig your workout tips. Way to keep yourself motivated and active, I love that!! I have been a fitness and yoga trainer since 1999 and have journals upon journals of my activities, food, and physical observations since I was a teenager. I have been able to learn so much about my health from having those personal records to refer to.
    Rock on, Herb Staley.

    Hi there! Would you mind elaborating on your raw cannabis usage? I would like to know how you keep it fresh, or how you store it, and how long you can store it for.
    How much do you consume each day, and what plant parts in what quantities?
    Do you eat it in one setting, or take multiple doses?
    Thank you for your time and dedication to this blog!

  15. […] Eating cannabis raw provides a meal with the cannabinoids in their acid state that allow you to consume a lot more of them. This morning, for example, I added 70g of raw cannabis pulp to a breakfast smoothie, about 1/3C. It did not make me feel high but I did feel very energized and positive as I took on my day. […]
