In brief: The best way . . .
. . . . Is not to use it at all.
Most chronic users report tolerance to the euphoric effects & need for increased frequency or increased amount of marijuana to get the same effect. Besides potentially inducing anxiety, panic, paranoia, and dysphoria, one's memory & motivation can be "off" even after the smoke is gone. Decreases in sperm count have also been seen, along with lung complications.

In brief: Stop using the stuff
Tolerance develops as you keep using the drug.
Stop now before it happens.
