haha good point! i'm sorry, that first comment sounded really douchey, i was just noting that it can be bad for you to do this too often

How can carbon monoxide get into your brain when you're holding your breath? Carbon monoxide comes out of a car's exhaust...

even then, only carbon dioxide comes out of your lungs... when you hold your breath, your just stopping any oxygen (outside that breath) from entering your blood.. the longer you hold the breath, the more oxygen out of that breath you use, you dont use 100% of the contents of the gas in your lungs within the first moments... more time = more absorbtion

Thu, 09/13/2012 - 10:38pm

But as you hold your breath, your store of oxygen runs out. If you go to long, the lack of oxygen will kill many cells, not only brain cells, but brain cells are the only ones that will not be replaced.

Fri, 09/14/2012 - 7:58pm

There as three breaths in every one that's why you can hold your breathe

Not to be a dick but this seriously isn't true.. if you hold your breath till you pass out then you lose brain cells due to lack of oxygen for that long. Theres nothing wrong with holding in hits!

Fri, 09/14/2012 - 4:38pm

I think the point you were attempting to make is that anytime you hold your breath for that long it has a negative effect on u. but who's gonna hold their smoke in till they pass out?.. ha

dammit now I'm one of the people correcting someone

Bonesaw501 Says:

the only thing that gets you higher than smoking like a cigarette is to take normal hits with no fresh air breaths inbetween... take a hit, blow out then imediately take another hit, then do it again.. on the last one of these you do, blow out a small portion of air, then suck in fresh air, blow out a small portion then suck in

Fri, 09/14/2012 - 8:44pm

Ahhhh, some concrete facts for my fellow stoners here. MOST weed strains have up to 80 canabonoids excuse the spelling, (wasnt my expertise). when you hold a toke for excessive time the first to enter is the THC, then follows the cannas which enough science hasnt been done on, but is believed that each take different amount of times to enter the body through tissue, so yes you do get more high holding it in, but its brutal for you cause any combustion is bad for your lungs. so savee yo bacon by takin fat tokes holding them in, you shouldnt need much more, and if you do,well self control does exist.

The temperature at which marijuana reaches your lungs is far less then that of many other smoke, due to the temperature and molecular bonds...holding it in your lungs longer only miniscually increase the slight damage it causes upon your lungs....it only damages the ciilia in your lungs which is quick to repair

P.S. if smoking marijuana damages your lungs to the extreme some believe then why is there not pictures of damaged lungs like they parade around for cigarettes?

Wed, 05/11/2011 - 3:59pm

ohhhhhhhhhhhhh yea when i have barely any weed i hold my hits until i cant anymore, and it FUCKING WORKS NICELY!!!

Wed, 05/11/2011 - 4:05pm

Yeah the whole lack of oxygen thing does that to you haha

nahhhh.... its simply giving the THC particles more time to enter your blood stream through ur lungs.... along with the lack of oxygen.

Wed, 09/12/2012 - 6:09pm

hold it for 5 seconds, that's all it really takes for all the thc to get taken in by your lungs. after that, all you're really getting is getting an o2 lack and some of the bads of weed.

Some guy gave me shit for taking too big of hits and holding them for too long. That guys a fag

Fri, 09/14/2012 - 1:45am

For real. Reminds me of the fag that said he should get two hits for my one, arguing that I was getting more smoke than him. Stopped being friends with him after he went off in English class about me not sellin him a teenth for 20. Fool knocks my head off the desk while I had my head down, sleepin sadly as usual, and says lets fight then! all crazy eyed and shit. So with my wake and baked logic I had two choices. Be a pussy and let this kid act like he can knock me while I'm sleeping, or, stick him in the face. I remember that rapidly going through my mind so I similarly rapidly reacted, swinging with a right followed by a left slammed both on his nose, all while we are still in our desks. He gets up fucked up nose and all and kinda wails as he hits me in the side of my head and I hit my head on the corner of the chalkboard from my sitting position. It just stops after that cause we both realize we are in class. I just think immediately of what I have in my bookbag and just think I need to get out. So I just calmly stood and walked out past the awestruck substitute teacher and walked home. I realized on the walk my head had gotten a gash from the chalkboard and had to get a few staples, but he had to get surgery on his nose. I think my injury was much better. But believe me that kid was a fag. Lgtb youth. He admitted himself to a psych ward cause he started thinking he wanted to be a female. Nobody get offended neither cause I'm just telling this story straight out my minds memory.

Fri, 09/14/2012 - 11:37am

Same thing happen to my homie.
Except for the gash and tranny thing.
Sometimes you gotta fuck people up.
Good hand work btw. Hand skills are a must.

Fri, 09/14/2012 - 3:35pm

Thanks dude. It's true sometimes you have to fuck people up to let them know they can't fuck with you. Turning the other cheek only goes so far. Lol @"except for the gash and the tranny thing"

Yea I do tend to hold in my hits. I'm still not sure if it does in fact get you higher or not but oh well.

ToTheMoon Says:

5 seconds ain't cutting it, I'm sure a lot of you are familiar with the "Around the World" game, where you try to hold your hit until it comes back around to you, then you deny your body of any straight oxygen and just take another hit, and while some may say that kills brain cells, I would argue that...ok

PurplePuma Says:

It only takes 3-4 seconds for the thc to become absorbed into your lungs, after that you just letting more stale smoke and carcinogens get into your lungs.

Sat, 09/15/2012 - 3:56am
Oxlo Says:

7-10 seconds to get all the THC, actually.
Salvia is 20-30 seconds.
Tobacco is near-instant.

Fri, 09/14/2012 - 3:37am

Hold it til it ghosts, then exhale through the nose(:

budsofdank Says:

You don't lose brain cells from lack of oxygen. You continue to recieve oxygen from your lungs for many seconds. If this isnt true, how come you can hold your breath longer full of air, rather than exhaled? Real lack of oxygen is if you exhale all the air in your lungs, and try to hold it for a minute.

Fri, 09/14/2012 - 11:56pm

look up the Heath Tulane study....it was done in the 70's pumping rhesis monkeys THC through gas masks for incriments of 20 min...after inspecting the brains of these monkeys they concluded that THC killed Neurons or "brain cells"....It has been discovered that due to the lack of Oxygen that the monkey where exposed to over prolonged times was the cause of the brain damage, not THC

by the way oxygen is absorbed in your lungs....and carbon dioxide is a bi-product which is a much heavier molecule therefore having shorter exhales

chaka3000 Says:

Who is this guy to say that FIVE seconds is ALL it takes for the THC to enter your lungs.... there is no fuckin proof on that... it depends on many factors like the weed, size of hit, size of lungs, etc... This is why when ur feendin and smoke a rez-bowl by urself, you hold in the smoke so you get way more high.

Fri, 09/14/2012 - 12:39pm

I cant remember the month of the issue. But i recently read an article in High Times where a group did a study to find out if holding in hits gets you higher. They had 2 groups of people separated, 1 group holding in hits for long amounts of time and the other group not holding in the hits for long. They found that people holding in there hits for shorter amounts of time had the same effects of those that held in the hits for longer. They said something like holding a hit in over 7 seconds is excessive and is causing lung damage at that point.

Fri, 09/14/2012 - 7:29pm

woah! im taking a break from smoking to get a job really soon and i was hitting my bong holding it as long as i could (becasue my tolerance is pretty high) so that i could get a high as i can. when i release the smoke after holding it as long as i could, i look up at my computer screen and see this highdea!!! i swear i did not make that up it just happened

Fri, 09/14/2012 - 10:06pm

Who actually has THE RIGHT answer to this?

No one and everyone. It's all just preference guys. I'm pretty sure you're going to do it your way regardless of what you read anyways.

Stop shitting on eachother with your bullshit "facts" that you are just regurgitating. Unless you have spent years researching this personally... Just stop.

You're just getting dizzy for the lack of oxygen. I don't hold my hits any longer than is necessary.

Sat, 09/15/2012 - 10:33am

I don't really hold my breath to long, but I feel when I exhale through my nose I get that re-absorption feeling and it makes me feel way higher .

May I add that holding your breath for 5-10 seconds most likely doesn't kill brain cells. All I have to say is, swimmers.
