Yo, what’s good my fellow stoners? You ever heard the myth that taking massive hits from a bong or blunt is the only way to get super high? Well, I’m here to tell you that it’s straight-up bogus. Let’s take a closer look at why bigger doesn’t always mean better when it comes to smoking weed.
First things first, let’s talk about how our lungs work. Did you know that our lungs aren’t actually great at absorbing oxygen and getting rid of carbon dioxide? It’s true. Even though we can inhale up to 6 litres of air in one go, we’re only absorbing about 5-6ml of oxygen per minute. So, if you think you can force more THC into your system by taking huge hits and holding them in, you’re sadly mistaken.
Yeah, I know some of y’all think that taking massive hits is the only way to get higher than Snoop Dogg at Coachella. But let me tell you, that dizzy feeling you get after a big hit isn’t because you’re more high, it’s because you’re depriving your brain of oxygen. Plus, holding in smoke for an extended period is bad for your health, man. The active compounds in weed make up only a small part of what’s in the smoke, and the longer you hold it in, the more toxic crap settles into your body.
So, what’s the solution then? Well, it’s simple really: smoke more. Or if your current stash ain’t cutting it for you, try stronger strains or maybe even dabbing concentrates or edibles for a more potent experience. And if you want to be truly healthy about it, try vaping instead of smoking. Vaporizers heat up the weed or concentrates without burning them, resulting in a much healthier consumption experience that some people even say is more intense.
Now, I know some of y’all aren’t just trying to get stoned out of your minds all the time. Maybe you’re using cannabis for medicinal purposes or just want a milder buzz so you can function throughout the day. In that case, microdosing might be right up your alley. Microdosing involves taking a small “sub-perceptual” dose of THC so you can enjoy the benefits without feeling high as a kite. Rather than smoking your whole joint or bowl, just take a couple of puffs here and there.
At the end of the day, smoking weed shouldn’t be about trying to outdo your friends or prove how tough you are by taking massive hits. It should be about enjoying yourself and keeping it easy and healthy. No matter how you choose to do it, make sure to take care of yourself and stay lifted!
