One of my favorite tips to share with people who are learning about medical marijuana (or seasoned smokers for that matter), is how long to hold in your “hit.” To be quite honest, I have no real method for verifying this information, except for the fact that it was told to me by Jack Herer, himself.
Jack loved to share information like this by saying he was 1000% correct. How could I argue with THAT?! He repeated this information several times until I could recite it back to him. What he would do was break down just how much THC you were ingesting with every second. It looks like this:
1 second = 10% THC
2 seconds = 20% THC
3 seconds = Jumps to 50% THC
4 seconds = 75% THC
5 seconds = 100% THC
For those of you that hold in your hit longer than 5 seconds, you may want to think twice now since according to this formula, it’s an exercise in futility. And for those of you not holding in your hit for at least 5 seconds, well you’re just wasting weed, unless of course you don’t want the full effect.
So there you go. You are now privy to Jack Herer’s 5 second rule. Learn it and share it. People are usually pretty grateful for the info!
