How to take a hit

If you think learning how to inhale weed sounds simple, think again, there is an art to this mind-altering feat.

Step 1
You must draw the smoke into your mouth before your lungs. If you are a cigar smoker, its easy do the same thing. Your cheeks are what you will use to draw the smoke into your mouth.

Step 2
Ok, so the smoke is in your mouth take a large breath of fresh air. This process will force the smoke into your lungs. Now you have a smooth hit because you included the fresh air.

Step 3
Exhale after a second or two. Holding your breath forever and a day is not required unless you are practicing for an underwater event. The effect will be welcomed as soon as the smoke hits those lungs, exhale. I say slowly in and slowly out that’s the best.

How long to hold in weed?

This is a valid question. It is one that has many different answers. Some people believe that the heady high is from holding in the hit. Does holding in weed get you higher? Well my friend, sorry but that is just not true. That dizzy heady feeling is from the lack of oxygen to the brain. Yep try holding your breath without smoking. You will get that same feeling. I think its just something we were told and believed. That tingling that some people say they feel when holding in that hit is a sensation associated with lack of oxygen. The majority of THC you intake is absorbed instantly, so why hold your breath?

What are the best hits?


Ghost Train Haze: here is your sativa dominant strain. This is a sticky, dense bud. If spicy and sweet piney aromas are what you like here it is. For inexperienced smokers or if you suffer from anxiety, this is one you should work up to — the THC level in high level, 28%. Psychedelic feelings from heavy smoking may induce feelings of paranoia. In smaller doses, this is laughter inducing sore belly strain. This is perfect if you are in a depressive state, looking to brighten up your outlook.

Medically: this strain is great for chronic pain, depression, fatigue, stress, and migraines.

Purple Kush: You may be looking at possibly one of the strongest cannabis strains in the world! 28% THC and an amazing ability to help with relaxing.  Using this strain may not be advisable for daytime use. Within minutes of your toke, you will feel your body relaxed, perhaps even a numbing feeling. The pain you had earlier is gone, and you could head to bed. The munchies may follow you with this one, and your high will last for hours.

Godfather OG: This strain has hit the THC level at 34%. It is a hybrid that is a cross between LA Confidential and Bubba Kush. Euphoria and joyful sensations will embrace your mind; your body is right behind it. There is no more tension. For recreational use, this is a great strain. Medically it is right up there also. It will assist you with insomnia and chronic pain. Not for the inexperienced smoker.

Well, pick a good strain perhaps GTH and enjoy your hit.
