Can Hotboxing Actually Get You Higher?

Hotboxing: myth or reality? Discover the truth behind this popular cannabis consumption practice

The beautiful art of hotboxing is said to get cannabis users high when the smoke is contained in a confined space.

Although hotboxing is an activity that happens every day in basements, closets, and cars, does hotboxing really make you higher or is it just a myth? In this article, let’s explore what’s out there about this practice.

What Is Hotboxing?

Hotboxing is a term used to describe the act of smoking inside an enclosed space to increase the concentration of smoke in the air and thus, it is believed, intensify the effect of the drug.

Hotboxing refers to the act of enclosing a space, such as a car or room and smoking cannabis to increase the concentration of smoke in the air. The idea is that the additional smoke inhaled by everyone present will make the effects of the drug more intense.

The Art Of Hotboxing

This trend of smoking in a relatively airtight location started when users realized two things.

First, smoking in public, or in less concealed spaces, could get you into some trouble if weed is not legal in your area or if you simply want to maintain discretion.

Second, and more importantly, cannabis users realized that containing smoke in a certain area could get you higher.

Think of it this way, you’re in a relatively enclosed place and there’s smoke everywhere, you’re not only consuming what you’re directly smoking but all the smoke around you, which is believed to intensify the experience.

In theory, the hot box is brilliant, as it is generally a communal smoking experience. A group of friends smoking = lots of smoke = a bigger high.

Hotbox Places

You may have already smoked in a hotbox, or you may not and want to try it. Here are some ideas of where you can do it. Enjoy.

Car: The classic place to hotbox is in a vehicle. Filling a small car with smoke while a stoner takes up all the seats is not that hard to do as long as you have the right supplies. Hey, the vehicle is parked.

Room, bathroom, or closet: A walk-in closet, pantry, or small bathroom is just the right size. If you want to make it work, take a towel and place it at the bottom of the door to keep the ventilation in the room low. Rooms are harder to hotbox, so more people are better.

Tent: If you go camping, your tent can be an excellent choice for hotboxing. Most tents are waterproof, but not airtight. If you modify your tent to protect it from rain, it will work best for filling it with smoke.

Drum roll, please – does hotboxing really make you higher?

Some studies that have been done confirm that exposure to secondhand cannabis does get you higher. This is because hotboxing may increase the concentration of THC in the body, and thus generate a more potent high.

The main study was conducted by the John Hopkins School of Medicine in 2015 and came to significant conclusions that seem to indicate that cannabis secondhand smoke still contains some THC, and if it contains it in the air around it, it will continue to get high with it to some extent.

So, it’s a fact, hotboxing can get you higher.

Hotboxing Tips

There are a few tips that could be very useful when hotboxing.

Choose a suitable place: remember that you are going to be in a closed place smoking weed with other people, choose the right place, and make sure you don’t have problems with smoke or smell.

Use accessories: Hotboxing requires you to be able to produce a lot of weed smoke, so using bongs and blunts can be a good alternative. Remember that blunts are wrapped in rolling paper which can generate an enhanced effect.

Also, make sure you have enough weed for continuous smoke.

Final Opinion

The combination of an enclosed space, cannabis smoke, and lack of oxygen all contribute to users experiencing stronger highs. The light-headed feeling experienced during a session in a hot box is attributed to both the lack of oxygen being ingested and the amount of smoke being inhaled.

Once you’ve clarified the validity of one of your favorite pastimes, it’s time to have some fun. Call your crew, buy yourself some weed, lock the door, and enjoy the extra high that hotboxing gives you.
