    When you put your lighter to the weed, should you keep it there for the whole hit, or just wait until it starts burning, then take the lighter away?

    thanks in advance.

    The less time you're sucking on the flame, the less carbon (soot) you'll be sucking, and the less THC you'll be burning up.

    Burn it until you get a nice cherry and then take the lighter off, get a nice big hit in, and release the carb.

    Like 5drive said, believe it or not, direct flame destroys some THC, so hold it just close enough to get a cherry, and then take it off so the smoldering bud heats everything else, your hit will also be a bit smoother when you take the flame away sooner.

    Like everyone else said, just burn it for like 1 second max until you got a good cherry and release. That way you get nice controlled hits. Otherwise if you hold it there for awhile, you'll spark most of the bowl, and have smoke barreling out of your bowl when you're done inhaling.

    I don't like the flame hitting to long so ill usually hold it just above the cannabis till it gets hot enough and catches itself

    Perfectly put. Then hold in, try not to cough exhale slowly.

    from my experience you want to have as little smoke from your lighter as possible

    Coughing gets you higher though. Your lungs absorb more thc

    i think it is personal preference. i would recomend that you just do it till it just catches then take the flame away and continue to inhale.

    If you can see into your weapon of choice, then just hit the lighter to the bud and lift as you see a little smoke, if the smoke stops coming through when you're not finished, then repeat.

    I liked to, when starting out, until I got it down perfect, I would flick the bic, then slowly begin inhaling with the flame away from the bowl. Then bring the flame over so you get a perfect corner hit. You just slowly move the flame near the bowl till your inhaling begins to pull it into the bowl. That way you don't end up burning more weed than you need.

    And more hits too!
