Where am I?
I used to try to hold my hits for as long as I could, usually between 5-10 seconds but lately I've just been holding it in for 2-3 seconds before exhaling. I feel like that's all I really need to get the effects now.
This is my view as well. If folks wanna get high-school high by choking themselves out, they are welcome to go ahead. I'm a grown-ass man and I've come to understand that I'd rather keep oxygen flowing into my lungs, thank you very much!I've had arguments with folks online in conversation and they disagree with me, they say that you need to hold it in for like 30 seconds. I don't like to argue so they can believe what they want. They will get pissed when I say their extra high is oxygen deprivation.
This as well! I tend to exhale quite quickly after inhaling. The other important thing to realize is that if you hold vapor in your lungs and do not fully exhale before going in for that second hit to finish the dab, you are guaranteed to cough. In other words, it is important to fully exhale all vapor before you take another hit. Also, the longer you hold the first hit in, the more overcooked and worse tasting the second hit will be by the time you have inhaled it off of your enail. I refuse to 'waste to taste'For some reason, once I started vaping the amount of time I held my breath shortened. And once I started dabbing? Forget about it. Since I often need to clear the nail with several hits, I exhale right away.
Not to mention the bigger waste in these videos: they usually don't inhale the vast majority of the vapor to begin with! I have seen so many 1g+ dab videos where the majority of the vapor just goes up into the air above the nail because they don't carb or keep inhaling the whole time. Such waste.When I watch videos, and see people take those big rips, and exhale all that vapor, it makes me a little angry. Seems like such a waste to me.
I like this! I just read this, took a hit, and gargled the vapor around my mouth and lungs just like mouthwash. I'm pretty sure its guaranteed to kill 99.9% of bad vibes.I believe agitation is the key here...
I think the movement of vapour inside your lungs helps to absorb more....
I hold it for about 3 seconds, then breath it out as slow as possible, savouring the taste and moment.....
Sometimes it just leaks out my nose due to how full of vapour I am....
There has been much discussion of what is the most effective breathing/holding technique and its still a bit of a raging debate.
There are those, who I think are scientifically correct, who say that your lungs only absorb when vapor (and air is also a vapor) is moving over the alveoli (little sacs in your lungs where gasses permeates to the blood stream).
There are also those who feel that holding in vapor just results in more reclaim collecting on the surface of your lungs without additional benefit because of the point above.
I tend to only hold for a few seconds but often I don't hold at all. I will pull the draw and then exhale/inhale small amounts. A bit of vapor out, a bit more air in, thus keeping the vapor moving over the alveoli. I have no proof that this does a damn thing.
I did see some sort of study, and my impression is that it was far from comprehensive, where they did find more cannabinoids entering the blood stream (maybe just testing for THC? Dunno) when held to 10 seconds. But if I remember correctly, they didn't really plot this out closely over varying time and I don't believe it should be used for guidance necessarily.
This is the worst way to consume vapor, especially dabbing. The inevitable coughing greatly limits your opportunity to taste your meds, I find most of the flavor is tastes on the exhale and if you cough and splutter you don't notice it so much.It's funny how different people have different techniques when drawing. My brother thinks you have to take the biggest draw imaginable then hold it in for 30 seconds or longer. He spends a lot of time just coughing. He doesn't leave enough room in his lungs at the end.
