Highly concentrated cannabis extracts known as shatter, wax, oil and live resin will get you high as a kite in no time. But will they drastically increase your tolerance levels as well? That’s what we’re here to find out.

A Rapid Increase with Dabs
Your tolerance for any substance will come and go over time depending on how often you consume it. It’s natural that using a dabbing rig to consume cannabis concentrates, or just consuming them in general, will greatly increase your tolerance. Now, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it all depends on the person smoking it. Dabbing occasionally won’t increase your tolerance too much. But stoners who like to get as high as possible on a near daily basis will soon realize that their tolerance level has dramatically increased, making their daily high less intense.

A dramatic increase in tolerance will create a never-ending loop of consuming more and more cannabis concentrate. And as this particular form of cannabis is the most expensive, that won’t be a good thing for your wallet. Finding pleasure in smoking a simple blunt or joint will have little to no effect on someone with such a high tolerance. A high most likely won’t be achievable, leaving the stoner frustrated and disappointed.

Dabbing vs Vaping
When consuming cannabis concentrates, you can use a dab rig or a vape pen that supports oils. While both methods result in the same inhalation pattern, you’ll get a different experience from both tools. The effects of both can be felt almost instantaneously. A dab rig needs to be heated up by the used and can result in a lot of coughing from the high temperature, as well as chest pain and possible numbness. With vaping, on the other hand, you can use a lower temperature to create vapours that won’t result in a long coughing fit. Because dabbing is still a more intense experience than vaping, doing it consistently will increase your tolerance level more quickly. If that’s what you’re trying to accomplish, then great. If not, then you’ll have to try a few different methods to lower your tolerance and enjoy lower consumption rates.

Increase Your Tolerance
There are several things you can do to increase your tolerance levels, whether you’ve been smoking on concentrates or dry herbs. For starters, try taking a break smoking weed, in any form, for a short period of time. While it’s not the easiest thing to do, and you’ll probably experience a decrease in appetite, have trouble sleeping or become increasingly irritable, it will allow you to build up your tolerance once again. Other methods include upgrading to a bong if you only smoke joints or blunts, switch between increasingly stronger strains and consuming edibles.
