How long do you inhale?

    I was reading this artical and it said something along the lines of

    "95% of THC is taken in of that hit in 1-2 seconds, everything after that is just hurting your lungs"

    This really shocked me, because usually I hold in until I get a tingling sensation and have exhale.

    I am assuming what you meant to say was 'How long do you hold your hits in?' =P

    Anyway, I read that the time for absorption was 2-3 seconds from a different source, but I usually shoot for an easy 5 seconds or so.

    Vapor - As long as I can, comfortably.

    Smoke - 3 - 5 seconds.

    As long as I can comfortably. Once it's gets uncomfortable I blow out the rip.

    I usually hold it for about 7 seconds. Though after 5 seconds, I slowly begin exhaling. Seems to work just fine for me. Avoids a coughing fit, my lungs don't hurt even after the biggest of hits, I can rest assured that no THC is being wasted, and all is swell. :)

    Why? After 5 seconds, there's nothing for your lungs to absorb but negative things like tar and excess particulate matter.

    Answering the question.. about 2-3 seconds usually. sometimes a bit more if i'm running low.

    I'm one of those smokers that figures, why not just hold it in as long as possible? If anything, it only hurts me, and I'm okay with weed hurting my lungs, it happens anyways when you smoke. I just don't like the thought of any weed goin' to waste ;D
    So I just take my hit, as I pull away inhale it as long as I can, then usually hold my breath for atleast 5 seconds. Probably closer to 10, or longer.
    If it hurts me, it never hurts me as much as cigs do. Therefore I don't care! :D

    Hey I don't know that. Plus it feels like I get higher the longer I hold it in, but that's probably just in my head.

    It could be a little placebo, but you are getting "higher" but it isn't from the weed, it's from depriving yourself of oxygen, which isn't good. Pot won't kill brain cells, but oxygen deprivation will ;)

    8-10 seconds. Seems like I've read someplace that it takes 90% of the goodies in the smoke roughly 10 seconds to be absorbed into your lungs. I'm not into wasting my precious THC so I hold each hit in for 8-10 seconds most of the time.

    I'm pretty sure the majority will say anything after 5 is just unnecessary damage to your lungs, and that after 5 seconds all the THC you're going to get is absorbed.

    I hold in for no longer than 5 seconds, usually only 3-4 thou.

    I've always known that it's about 3 seconds till most of it is absorbed, so i've never really held it more than 3 seconds.

    No point doing extra damage to your lungs.

    With a bong though, I like to ghost it because it adds a nice effect to the experience of a huge bong hit.
