How to Get Super High When You Have a High Weed Tolerance


What Do We Mean By Getting ‘High’?

Hang on a minute; how can you get high without weed?! We get it, we sound a bit crazy – but science has our backs on this one, and you really can get the feeling of being high without any drugs at all.

It turns out our bodies were made to feel pleasure and get high, which is why cannabinoids such as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are so well received by the body’s BUILT-IN cannabinoid receptors.

But what about other ways of getting high that don’t include mind-altering psychoactive compounds? It turns out there are many everyday things you can do to release those same chemicals within the brain that lead to those feelings of being high.

For example, when we smoke weed, THC, which resembles the natural transmitter known as anandamide, affects the levels of dopamine (the brain’s reward system) in the brain leading to those familiar feelings of happiness, reward and pleasure. And as it turns out, there are other more natural ways of getting those same chemical releases!


Take a tolerance break

One major way to feel more stoned is to get stoned less often. If you are a strictly recreational and moderate consumer of cannabis, you can probably attest to feeling a bit smacked in the head when you pick it up again, whereas a daily or medical consumer may need a more potent punch to feel the vibe. Taking what’s called a “T break” (short for tolerance) for a period of time reflective of your consumption habits gives your body’s CB receptors a chance to reset.

14 Smoking Tips For A Better High

To feel a good high, make sure your weed has ample THC, as this is the weed’s psychoactive ingredient. Some medical marijuana intended for physical relief is low in THC, so its cerebral effects are not as strong. Show your bong a little THC to get the high you are looking for. Try, for …

And Now How to get Unstoned

(How to get unhigh – relaxing with weed, image from The Puff USA on Instagram)

Okay, we’ve detailed some ways of getting too high– certainly, not all, weedy people are endlessly inventive, but assuming you have hit upon a recipe for how to get really high on weed (perhaps using one of our techniques or a combination of the above marijuana methods) then one of two things is going to happen: it’s gonna be a pleasure cruise or a voyage downward spiral to hell. Usually getting high is fun and relaxing, but if it does go south and take the edge, you can get woozy or have a bad weed trip resulting in a panic attack while high.

Without doing anything, you will eventually experience a weed comedown. What is a weed comedown? It simply means no longer feeling high, sometimes however you might feel a little let down or depression, especially after a particularly manic marijuana high. Sometimes a weed comedown involves a slight hangover; the symptoms of an herbal hangover can include nausea, confusion, a headache and extreme dehydration the severity of which will likely vary according to your body mass, metabolism, the amount and kind (or kinds) of pot that you partied hardy with, even the weather can be a factor – hot, muggy days can make a weed hangover far, far worse.

But, if you decide to self care and take you out of hyperspace because the high is making you feel panicky, dizzy, sick or maybe all three at once (we confess to have been there a time or two, but we did obviously live to tell about it), then there are ways to stop being high and bring yourself out of the anxiety plateau and back to life, back to reality. Nothing is magical, there’s no ‘weedstop’ or ‘weed-be-gone’ – unless you’re talking about the weeds in your lawn and garden, but here are some ideas on how to stop being  high when it feels kinda like your high is killing you:

3) Does Eating Kill Your High?

Eating fatty foods can get you really high – in fact, part of cooking with cannabis is using butter, veggie oil, or high-in-medium-chain-triglycerides coconut oil as a carrier for cannabinoids. But eating can also help you stop being high because the fatty molecules will sponge up the remaining unbound THC and help your body metabolize it faster – plus the act of digestion pulls some of the blood flow from your brain to your stomach (hence why you sometimes get tired after eating) thus reducing the psychoactive effects of THC.

The sugars in food will speed up your metabolism and it will process the THC that much faster, and sugars help the whole electrolyte thing, as we mentioned just above about drinking orange or lemon juice to help stop being high. Also eating can help you rehydrate too, as food contains water. So, food can make a good defense against an over-aggressive buzz but food is a slow-acting cure and, save for the blood diversion from the brain, it could take hours for the food to completely negate a high – during which time the monster cannabis high might wear off on its own. But, combined with other stoner sobering methods having something in your gut can help.

Since we’re speaking of food…

5. Eat Foods to Enhance Your High

It might seem like an unconventional method, but the foods and drinks you consume before marijuana can actually impact the effects. For instance, every strain of cannabis contains terpenes. These are compounds which affect the flavor of marijuana as well as the high.

Terpenes work alongside cannabinoids and other compounds in marijuana to affect your high. They’re also contained in many foods. That means you can eat things like mangoes, sweet potatoes, nuts, and tea to enhance your high.

Other kinds of foods can also help. Omega-3 fatty acids from things like fish or supplements can help boost your high. Dark chocolate can increase the length of your high. Foods with relaxing effects, such as green tea, also work well alongside the effects of cannabis. Experiment with these foods and see how they impact the effects of your cannabis high.

Take A Break

It’s not fun, but the best way to reduce your tolerance to marijuana is to take a break. How long your break lasts will determine how it affects you. Your body stores THC in fat cells all over your system.

Under normal circumstances, your body moves energy in and out of your healthy fat cells all the time. Your body is constantly using and replacing fat cells all over. Over time, you’ll flush the THC out of your system through natural metabolism.

You can speed up this process in several ways. Drinking plenty of water is one of the best ways. Getting regular exercise and sleep will help you reduce your weed tolerate capacity as well.

It can take up to 90 days for your body to metabolize all the THC that is sitting in your tissues.

Once the THC has been taken out of your system completely, you’ll be pretty much a newbie to smoking weed once again! Of course, you’ll know what to expect, so you won’t be a weed virgin. Sorry, it’s not going to be like the first time.

But you’ll still get blazed! Consider taking a few months off each year to renew your ability to get really high. Your body will appreciate it!

What is the Healthiest Way To Smoke Weed?

For many medical marijuana patients or recreational adult-users, smoking weed is the only way they know to administer their medicine. If smoking is your preferred method, there are some things that you can do to minimize the negative effects of smoking.

  1. Use Water Pipes — using a bong or bubbler to smoke pot can filter out some of the carcinogens present in marijuana smoke, cooling down the temperature causing less heat damage to the lungs. For additional relief, try dropping a few ice cubes inside your bong. 
  2. Use Glass Pipes — using glassware to smoke your weed is definitely preferable over some other materials, such as aluminum or plastic, which can pass along some unwanted byproducts at high temperatures.
  3. Keep Your Gear Clean –You can cut down on the chance of inhaling carcinogens by keeping your smoking gear nice and clean, regularly applying isopropyl alcohol to clear any resin or otherwise.  

2. Change the Method of Consumption

Another incredibly effective way to get a stronger high is by changing the way you smoke weed. Certain methods yield stronger effects than others. For instance, while smoking a joint is a simple and effective way to get high, changing to a bong or pipe will often result in stronger and longer-lasting effects.

Vaping may be even more effective. A 2018 study found that vaporized cannabis could produce more powerful effects than smoking it due to more THC absorption. Vaping is just as straightforward as smoking, so upgrading to a vape pen might be the best choice for a consistently strong high.

This doesn’t just apply to weed, either. Some people use a dab rig for their cannabis concentrates to get an even more hard-hitting THC high. Of course, the best results come when you use the most potent products along with the best method of consumption.


One idea of how to get really high off of weed is to stop smoking it and eat it! With legal marijuana, you CANNOT overdose.

You can, however, consume so much weed and get so high that you leave reality for a while. If this is what you’re after (and who isn’t?), you should try edibles.

When you smoke, you can only ingest the one puff you’re working on at a time. When you eat, you can put as much marijuana in your system as your belly can fit!

Be careful though! Adjusting from smoking to eating weed can be tricky. Many people report falling asleep.

That’s what a marijuana overdose looks like: you get tired and want to go to bed and take a nap. If you eat a huge amount of edible pot, you might not get high, you might fall asleep and miss it!

How Much Herb Should You Smoke?

If you’re smoking good old-fashioned herb then you’re probably only going to need a few hits if it’s your first time. The effects of weed can be felt anywhere from instantly to up to several minutes. If it’s your first time then just take 1 or 2 hits, and wait for a few minutes. If you’re still not high you can take another hit. Usually, beginners would not need to smoke an entire bowl or joint by themselves to get high. If the quality is decent then 3 or 4 hits total should get the job done. If you’re new to this I highly recommend checking out two of my other articles: How to Smoke Weed Properly: A First-Timer’s Guide and 7 Reasons Why You Aren’t Getting High From Weed.

Remember, the more you smoke the higher your tolerance is going to get. Individuals with high tolerances may need multiple bowls or joints to feel effects. Some people report smoking so much they can’t get high anymore. If this is the case I highly recommend taking a tolerance break.
