Whether we’re talking about travel partying or eating your favorite food, too much of a good thing is never a good thing. The same can be said for smoking weed. Regular cannabis consumers know all too well that at a certain point, their tolerance for THC goes up which means they need ever greater quantities of herb to achieve the same buzz. Fortunately, there’s something you can do about it. In this brief guide, the team at our Denver headshop location looks into the weed tolerance break, what it is, and how to make the most of it.
Everybody reaches the last paper sometime. Even those who prefer joints and smoke every day – those people you’d think always have a generous stash of papers in one of the kitchen cabinets – run out of rolling papers now and then. Usually at the least convenient time: like when two feet of snow have fallen in the last 24 hours and they’d need a snowmobile to get to a headshop or convenience store. In situations like that the issue becomes one of finding or creating alternative ways to enjoy your cannabis. In this post, the team at the 710 Pipes in Denver examines eight rolling paper alternatives.
People have been smoking weed for thousands of years. The unbroken line of continuous cannabis consumption goes back to the ancient Chinese and Japanese, up through the Syrians of the 12th century and right to Napoleon’s troops who needed to find an alternative to alcohol when he invaded Muslim Egypt 200 years ago.

There are decades, even centuries of mystique surrounding weed that draws people to want to try it. The fact that it was illegal for so long only adds to that mystique.
But mystique or not, once they smoke it for the first time most people either love it or they’re not impressed and move on. There is a third type of reaction, however, that occurs in a tiny percentage of first-time smokers: they get a bit freaked out by the way it alters their perceptions.
Whether you’re new to the smoke shop scene or you’ve been around the block for decades, you’re likely aware of the variety of options from one smoking session to the next. Some prefer to imbibe their favorite legal herb through water pipes, while others swear by concentrates and smart rigs. Many smokers stick with the simple pleasure of a well-rolled joint. No matter how you smoke it, the impact felt from any particular herb can vary significantly depending on the way it’s imbibed. As so many of our seasoned smoke-shop regulars will tell you, a quality grinder is essential for any self-respecting smoker, and it’ll boost the quality of any smoking session.
What exactly is a grinder – and why do you need one? We’ll break it down for you (just this once).
