Do You Get Higher When You Cough

Posted by CANNASaver on Sunday, 10 January 2021 in Canna Blog

Do you have iron lungs or do you have a chronic cough? Perhaps you clear your throat before you take a rip or shortly thereafter. Sometimes that bong rip hits a little harder than usual, sending you into a coughing fit, which makes you think  – do you get higher when you cough? 

The answer, although it would be cool, it actually does not!

When Weed Hits Your Lungs

Lungs are amazing organs that keep us alive by pulling air into our body, extracting oxygen, and sending it to cells. The lungs also extract cannabinoids and THC and send them through your body to give you bodily pain relief or uplift your spirits. 

At some point during your hits, you will need to exhale and breathe a new breath. The same goes with the hit that it will contain a certain amount of THC which will affect you and your lungs can only pull out a certain amount. Once your lungs hit their absorption limit it's time to take a new hit. It's less important if coughing will get you high as it is if you have more buds to load. 

For some people, the cough before a bong rip is essential to help them take a big full breath of some delicious smoke or vapor of their favorite strain. For others, the cough is a completion of that same smokey pull to push out all of the smoke from their lungs. 

There are some people who can suppress their coughs or who have trained themselves to take short shallow breaths instead of coughing. Others can simply hold their breath until their urge to cough goes away.

Why Do You Cough When You Smoke Weed?

[Weed] smoke has some toxins and the body has natural defenses to get it out, such as coughing. But coughing could also be a mechanism to help get you more oxygen. Coughing might help you contract your lungs and prepare for a big inhalation. 

As the body works shamelessly and effectively to keep you alive, the act of breathing when interrupted by smoke or vapor will result in an attempt (cough) to expel those things until you are breathing less irritable air. Your lungs will extract THC and CBD just as effectively regardless of coughing or not. There is a limit to the absorption capacity that your lungs max out.

Myth: Busted - Coughing Does Not Get You Higher

There is not a lot of medical evidence surrounding the claim that coughing will get you higher due to the Federal legal status of marijuana products. The anecdotal evidence is as wide-ranging as the colors of your favorite hippie’s hair. “Coughing gets you higher,” “holding your hit in longer will get you higher,” “blowing out smoke rings will get you higher,” and “you will float through the center of those O’s.”

But, alas, coughing does not get you higher. The lack of oxygen when you take a hit of smoke may make you lightheaded but this is a short-term side effect that will resolve quickly once you take a few breaths of air. The claim that coughing gets you higher, while fun to believe, is false. Coughing might help you inhale bigger breaths but it will not rocket you into outer space. 

cough make you higher

Someone who was embarrassed by their cough when toking likely came up with this rhyme “cough to get off” to make themselves seem cool. That person may also have not learned how to use a carburetor (pulling out the bong bowl or letting your thumb up to let in some air) and did not inhale enough oxygen during their pull.

So instead of acting like you have a cold or COVID just buy more concentrates or buds and load another bowl. The marginal impact of coughing to get higher is merely the deprivation of oxygen. Although it is a fun myth to believe, it is not a truth, which will replace finding stronger and tastier weed. 

Make fun of yourself when you cough and laugh at your friends when they cough. There is nothing to be embarrassed about because your lungs are helping you to survive and as they have done for centuries of evolution – they will inhale and get you high.

Most Efficient Way to Get High

Posted by CANNASaver on Thursday, 28 January 2021 in Canna Blog

You’re at your favorite dispensary with all the different options in front of you when you start thinking, which of these products are the most efficient way to get you high? 

With vast amounts of flower, concentrates, edibles, and other marijuana goodies, it might be a good idea to at least consider efficiency when selecting what you take home to consume.

Most Efficient Ways to Get High

Whether it be the amount of money you have to spend, considering your overall health, or the best high involved; we are going to look at the most efficient way to get you high.

most efficient way to get high


The beautiful, classic bong. How we love thee. Bongs are often beautiful and could even be pieces of art. The bong is ever so trusty when getting you high and getting you high really fast. Bongs produce THC-rich smoke which helps the efficiency of your high. 

With water pulling gross toxins from entering your body, it cools the smoke in your lungs allowing for bigger hits. Use a smaller bowl when using a bong to get maximum efficiency when smoking your weed. Cannasaver helps to find the tastiest of the buds.

concentrates most efficient way to get high


Concentrates such as wax, shatter, and live resin were made for a modern stoner wanting smoking efficiency. Cannabis concentrates often hit between 60-80% in THC potency and can even sometimes hit higher numbers. The higher potency maintains a stronger high. 

With an onset time of 1-3 minutes, the effects can last a few hours. Concentrates maintain the terpenes from the marijuana plant thus adding to the overall cannabinoids being absorbed and natural taste involved. It also helps that concentrates are cheaper by weight for the amount of THC contained.

However, proceed with some caution as concentrates will raise THC tolerance big time. They are not recommended for first-time users due to their strength in potency. They also require tools to use such as a rig, torch, dabber tool, etc. 

Concentrates are definitely fun for veteran smokers. Check out Cannasaver for killer deals on concentrates.

edibles most efficient way to get high


From brownies to drinks, edibles offer a strong, unusually unique marijuana experience. 

Edibles are the longest-lasting, incredibly efficient way to indulge in cannabis. Though they have an onset time between 30-90 minutes (depending on your metabolism), these tasty treats can last anywhere from 6-8 hours. Compared to smoking/dabbing lasting between 1-3 hours.  Infused drinks are known to hit much faster between 20-30 minutes. 

It does not take much of an edible to get a desired high. The edible is digested with THC forming into a different byproduct in the liver making a chemical 2.5x stronger than regular THC. 

With this, comes a bit of caution. Start with low doses and be patient. Overeating edibles can cause a bad time, especially in those new to cannabis. If the edible doesn’t kick in within 30-90 minutes, then take more. Not before.

In the end, edibles are also a health-conscious way to get high, protecting your lungs from toxins and carcinogens found in smoke. Check out Cannasaver for deals on edibles.

grinders most efficient way to get high


The grinder is a stoner’s very best friend. 

Throwing whole nugs or hand-broken nugs into a pipe often won’t burn very well thus being very inefficient. Instead, use a grinder! This will eliminate uneven burning on your poor ol' Mary Jane.

By grinding your cannabis, you are increasing the surface area of your stash. The increased surface area allows for more bowls gained out of your stash with the added benefit of burning your buds very evenly. Also, you will more thoroughly enjoy the terpenes in your favorite weed by breaking through to the freshness within your cannabis. Which in turn intensifies your high. 

By the end, you have an efficient cannabis tool with the added bonus of the wonderful trichomes (kief) accumulating at the bottom of your grinder, a great rainy day treat.


One-hitters are discreet, powerful, and effective. One-hitters are small in size only allowing for one hit at a time before needing to reload. This helps to space out your smoking sessions. This will help maintain a low tolerance. 

Tolerance is the key to smoking weed efficiently. 

With a lower tolerance, you will be able to smoke the least amount of bud getting the most out of your high. For $10 or under, these devices are a cheap investment for minimizing your tolerance needs and providing years of savings.

vaporizers most efficient way to get high


Vaporizers are known as the most efficient way to smoke marijuana. They are easy to use and extremely discreet. They are one of the healthiest ways to consume due to producing no tar byproducts. 

While vaping, keep your temperatures low, allowing for maximum efficiency. Using a trusted battery for your cartridge will add to the benefit of vaping. Vaporizers also reduce the amount of odor being emitted while maintaining flavor. Companies like PAX and GreenDot have cartridges that you would swear were actual bud hits. 

In terms of the best herb vaporizer, the volcano reigns supreme. Though initially expensive, it will help you get the most out of smoking your weed. You can even "reburn" or reuse vaped weed a couple of times, adding to its efficiency.

Switch Up Strains

You might be thinking, will switching strains be an efficient way to get you high? 

Hell yeah, it will!

Your brain gets too familiar when you're constantly smoking the same strain. You can stick to either Sativas or Indicas but play around with different strains within those categories. 

If you smoke Grand Daddy Purp all the time, try smoking Bubba Kush or Blueberry instead. And so on. Playing around with strains will keep your brain guessing in a good way.

With these options in mind, hopefully, you can find the most efficient way to get high that pertains to you. Each person is going to be different when it comes to efficiency but with these products in mind, it will be much easier for you to narrow down the perfect option for you.
