Best way to take hit from waterpipe?
    #4122461 - 05/02/05 10:28 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

When smoking marijuana from a waterpipe,

1. How deep should you inhale?
2. How long should you hold the smoke?

For maxmimum effect and best health.

In college we used to hold the smoke as long as possible, but lately I've read that the THC takes effect in only a few seconds, so it isn't necessary to hold any longer than that.

dunno? I inhale fairly deeply, and keep the hit in. Can't hurt can it??

What I do is.. put my mouth over the bong and seal it. Then slowly exhale out of your nose until you have absolutely NO more air, then take a hit. This enables you to take a HUGE hit if you want.. but.. if you take a small one still hits a little harder.

I've heard that THC stays in smoke for up to 8 seconds, so holding it in for any longer than 8 seconds probably wouldnt have much of an effect. Not sure how true it is. Holding it in for longer than that is just a hassle anyway and makes getting high more of a chore. I usually hold it in for as long as I can before it starts to get uncomfortable(5-6 seconds maybe) then exhale. I also make sure that the smoke gets deep in my lungs.

I let all my air out, take a big hit, then exhale the smoke slowly through my nose. Then, I pull the bowl out and clear the rest.

I don't see a point in holding it in for a long time unless you're trying to torture yourself. I just exhale very slowly.

The best way?

Light the bowl, and inhale through your mouth, until you get a lung full. If you start coughing like crazy, you just had too much. Take a smaller hit next time.

Make sure you inhale.

It's all relative. Inhale as much as you can, then hold it in as long as you can. Or if you want to enjoy the experience more, just as long as you want too.

There's no "right" way to take a hit. Unless you're holding it upside down.

no offense but i don't understand these "how to "X" weed to get the highest possible" threads. why not just smoke until you are high enough.

i can understand your occupation w/ the health aspect of holding in weed smoke for a certain amount of time though. i think that is an important issue to address.

me...i inhale, hold for no more than a couple seconds then exhale. no big deal and i get as high as i want.

I light my bowl and hit it slowly after exhaling all the air out of my lungs. I keep breathing in at a steady pace until I dont see a cherry anymore, then I just rip it in one hit. With practice, the hit will not hurt anymore. And when you condense the smoke to the bottom of the pipe and inhale, the smoke is usually thick enough to make you taste resin, and spit yellow. Dont know how healthy this is, but its the only way I get high.

Are you serious? Grade 9 science: deeper hits means that smoke hits more surface area in your lungs... which means more of the bad shit has potential to condense and screw you all up even more so.

I don't bother taking the maddest hits anymore especially if I'm just by myself. I just smoke better weed and not focus on getting messed up, and I alwyas have awesome highs.

Please, anyone with concerns about smoking and its safety for your lungs, search for "lightbulb vaporizer". This is a very cheap piece of equipment that is surprisingly effective, if requiring a small bit more work than the 100$+ alternatives. Vaporizing holds virtually no safety risks, as it avoids combustion and thus avoids tars, carbon monoxide, and other products of combustion.

I personally now vape anytime I'm smoking alone, and many of my friends have converted to vaping after learning the lightbulb. I still smoke on occaision, but this way I can be nearly completely guilt free even if I do like to take a bong rip here and there.

I find the most helpful bit of advice is to keep on breathing in after you've cleared the bong. Slowly drawing in a constant stream of air will stir the smoke in the lungs, thus ensuring more THC makes contact with the surface, thus making you higher :smile:
