We all know we have Endocannabinoid systems, and that in time, they can get “over used-over stimulated…” and the medicines (RSO’s/Tinctures/Vapes. whatever) don’t work as effectively or worse.
For many people (especially Recreational Users) it is very easy for them to just stop all cannabis use and allow their endocannabinoid system to “reset” (Usually about 2 weeks to 1 month).
For many people (like myself) who MUST take high doses of both THC and CBD for Epilepsy, PTSD, Autoimmune illness, etc…We can’t just take a “Tolerance Break”, or we suffer horrible consequences that can include hospitalization (due to worsening of main symptoms- like Epilepsy, etc).
Is there anything we can do? Any “Strains” that we can work with to accomplish something similar? My main problem is that I have become “immune” to many of the strains that used to help with pain and/or insomnia, and for some reason even MORE sensitive to “sativa leaning strains” (I think because so many strains are 'Hybrids now a days). Hoping to hear from a wide variety of people of what has worked for you. Again, simply “going OFF all cannabis” is not an option for me.
Right now I am doing about 300 mg CBD per day (broken up into 3-6 doses) and THC about 200-1000 mg per day (depending on flare/pain/insomnia level etc).
With the change in weather my depression/ PTSD/insomnia and arthritic pain has been awful and my regular arsenal of cannabis strains is not helping. Thanks in advance for any assistance! Peace
