For some people, a single beer is not enough alcohol to give them a noticeable buzz, let alone a noticeable feeling of intoxication.
But since I rarely drink, it only takes one to give me pleasant effects on the rare occasions when I’m at a bar with my friends.
Sometimes they will serve beer that is double strength as well. You can get a great deal if the ABV is higher than 10% on a beer that costs the same price as something at 6% ABV. Either way, it’s nice not having to spend extra money on multiple drinks to get the same kind of effects, which is exactly what my friends have to do. They’re jealous that my tolerance for alcohol is as low as it is. But they don’t realize that the opposite is true for my tolerance with cannabis, regardless of what kind of products I consume. I have been using it for so long that small doses of cannabis don’t affect me nearly as much as they do for people who are casual smokers. I also have to be careful about what kinds of products that I buy because they don’t all have the potency or produce the same effects. If I try to smoke or vaporize cannabis flower products that test below 20% THC, it’s hard for me to get a good buzz like I would from a batch over 30% THC. This is largely why I have switched to using cannabis concentrates instead. When the THC level ranges between 60% and 95%, a single dose is enough to get me medicated for several hours. I would need to consume an entire bowl of cannabis flower buds to achieve an effect remotely similar. But, it won’t ever be the same as a hit from a cannabis concentrate.
