Marijuana Tolerance Build-Up

Study of male cannabis-users.

Study found that after just 2 days of abstaining from cannabis, tolerance returns significantly. And after 4-8 weeks of abstaining, the cannabis user can be compared to an eternally sober patient.

This is good news. A surprising find, indeed.

Without commenting on the result, the study itself is very weak because it only had 11 test subjects and 19 control subjects.

For studies of anything as variable as human physiology, that is an insufficient sample size.

Further it is assuming an establishment of dependence and that withdrawal occurs. Both those are refuted in multiple other studies.

I can't find a good reference of the publication it was originally published in to check if it is a pay to publish thing, but the NCBI is a well respected accumulator so IMO the jury is still out.
