Default Do you "hold it in" ?

I recently read somewhere that it's unnecessary to suck in the vapor or smoke as deeply as you can and totally unnecessary to hold it in at all. It claimed it makes little to no difference in THC to the bloodstream and is actually harder on the lungs.

I treat Vapor and Smoke differently.

I "hold" my vapor hits but only for like a 2, maybe 3 count
and I treat my smoke (anything combustion) "all but a cigarette" so maybe a half count. etc

but I totally believe that holding any hit as long as you can is NOT a good plan (for your lungs)

I'm 62, very popular in my day to hold it in as long as you could. I heard about a 2 sec rule (sounds like your vape hit) few years back but I still find myself holding it in (hold habits die hard)

dont need to hold it man, wont make any difference. I use a Herbalizer Vaporizer and i smoke normaly and no matter what i do i get the same high.. i wouldnt hold specially cause is hot, and dry air, this will irritate your lungs if not contribute for someting worst due to the high temperatures.

i do hold like 2 seconds when i smoke a joint, but i prefer to play the release and catch smoke, i get more high, dont know why.. maybe is all psychological

I agree the heat is the culprit. I use a long hose and bought a little aluminum so-called cooling coil but does squat... I sometimes run the hose through a bucket of ice water... heat is the culprit fer sure

there's that repeating thing again... 63 yr old pothead doesn't remember at the end of a paragraph what he wrote at the beginning

sounds amazing ganja you smoke! hahahaha

im thinking to connect the hose from my vaporizer to a glass coil, that would do the trick to cool down the vape, if not sink the glass coil in ice then use it.

Ofc not to hold longer the vapor but so i can give more hits without drinking cold water.. i like to vape 390-420 F

I go up as high as 440, I don't like to but I want to see a cloud.
I keep the thing on too log too, probably burning off crap off the heating element :-( I should try edibles but o patience for that

I forgot about my ice bag thing, kind of a pain but works great. have a long hose (that's what...) and lay it between two bags of ice.
the ice melts around the hose, wait... pic coming
I store this thing in the fridge, It becomes a block I can poke the hose through
much cooler, esp if you draw slowly
trying it now, very effective, not sure if the coil helps, even submersed in ice bucket, didn't do much, the bags work

I went to a seminar put on by an oncologist in town. The first thing he opened his talk with was, "you don't need to hold it in" The audience gasp. lol It is a hard habit to break.

ya, let's get the word out... I wish I'd known this 40 years ago.... I can remember taking huge bottle tokes and holding 'til I burst.
If something made you laugh (and how hard was that?), it was hard on the throat too!

lol at that one... I take that hose after 10 minutes 230C and slowly draw for a 20 count, exhale, repeat, exhale, repeat, and that's about .25 grams.

I use that long hose for cooling and collecting, that stuff is gold dripped on to some mediocre pot :-)

I was thinking to use the Graham model to cool down the smoke
