    Whats up guys , i was talking to somebody about keeping a lower tolerance by swapping between vaping and hash caps, tinctures, edibles, etc...and i was told that i should just convert the majority of my jar into oil and eat it because he says he began using less after completely swapping from vaping to making hash caps...what are your opinions on this?

    IDK. But my experience with edibles has been the opposite. If I would eat edibles multiple days in a row, my tolerance would go up much faster than I like. I really love the edible high, but can't do that all the time, not for lack of meds, but just not trying to kill my "ingesting" tolerance.

    I juggle multiple strains of flower and concentrates and also throw in some edibles, or at least some decarbed CO2 oil, into the mix to keep the Tolerance Monster at bay. Seems to work much better, for my medicating needs. I have some Hi CBD strains that I use for the really bad pain days only.
    But other than that, I mix up my med stash usage constantly.

    Interesting....do the edibles jack up your tolerance to vaping/dabbing also or just your tolerance to edibles?

    Just my edible tolerance.

    Edibles are soooo hard to judge because how they effect you is sooo different / not consistent from person to person.

    For example, some heavy heavy vapers that vape BIG amounts are edible wimps, a little gets them really zoned out and
    some lightweight micro-dosers can do big doses of edibles and feel almost nothing.
    One needs to start really low with edibles and experiment to see how they impact you.
    If you were at the end of the continuum where a tiny edible gets you really medicated, then edibles might make your stash last longer

    So you would say maybe swapping back and forth between the two would be the best way to keep tolerance reasonably low? Like you can eat brownies or whatever for a few days and then vape a fat chamber or dab and get blowed still?

    I mean yeah i seem to get pretty damn medicated from ethanol tinctures but i guess i just wanna make sure im Not adding to my vaping tolerance from using the edibles to extend my stash to the point where i wont be able to get chill from vaping when the edibles run out if that makes sense lol

    In my own experience, flower and concentrate vaping are not bothered by ingesting, either positively or negatively.

    Rotating strains of flower and concentrates are what makes more a difference for keeping my tolerance in check. 6-7 diff strains of flower on hand, double that for concentrates. Even if I favor one strain more, I still try to meter them out equally.

    If you use the trash to stash thought then of course edibles help make it further.
    You (I) cannot eat everyday. I (you) need at least one day in between trips or receptors get overloaded. (IMHO):rockon::myday:

    You can also use your ABV to make edibles, probably the best way to make your stash last longer.
