If you’re totally honest, chances are you’d have to admit this is a question you’ve either asked or at least wondered. In terms of logic, you’d think that after taking a hit of any kind, the longer you hold your breath, the heavier the impact. Contrary to popular belief however, this just isn’t the way it works with cannabis. The reason being that as far as the science of the stuff goes, at least 95% of the THC in the toke is taken in by the body almost immediately after inhaling. Which in turn means that holding your breath as long as possible won’t actually make any difference at all.
