Myth Busted: Can you get high off of resin?
A couple of weeks ago we were asked if it was possible to get high off of resin. And, we tried it for ourselves. We had a daily smoker quit for one week, than smoke a bowl full of resin. Our test subject stated that he felt just as high as he would from smoking a bowl, in the beginning possibly even more high eventually leveling off. After having him smoke every day for one week we performed the same test again on our human guinea pig. At which point he stated the effect seemed to last shorter than usual and was less intense than from marijuana itself.
This leads us to believe that resin does contain THC, and that it is possible to get high off of it. However, the THC content of resin may vary greatly depending on the type of marijuana you are smoking at what you are smoking it out of. You could have some dank resin or some with minimal THC content. Scientifically, it makes sense since because not all of the THC is activated and vaporized when marijuana is burned. After smoking a portion of the resin has not reached the appropriate vaporization and activation temperature for marijuana and remains unburned.
So, when the going gets tough and you run out of weed, or can’t find any. It would be possible to get high off of resin in bongs and bowls. However, in our opinion it tastes terrible, the high is okay, but realistically it is just not the real deal.
Hope this help cleared some things up for you guys. Remember to send us your myths. And, feel free to get at us with any questions or comments you may have.

Of course resin can get you high!! Me and my friends used to always smoke resin when we would run out, just scrape the pipe. I found doing knife hits with it works best, gets me higher than just smoking plant out of a pipe
nice article i wonder what levels of carcinogens r introduced to ur lungs when smoking resin vs raw herbs.. that’s the real reason i wouldn’t recommend it.
We’d rather not think about it.
Sometimes I prefer a rez high verse weed high its a lil mellower some times but all I smoke is chron so I spose it does make a diff
If you have to resort to taking a resin hit it will get the job done. Who doesn’t like the chronic though?
This kind of contradicts with my own experience, it depends on the method of extracing the resin and how much you smoke. I cracked open a pipe with a hammer and scraped out all the resin with a razor blade, and formed ths resin up into a ball, the size of 4 grapes (weird size, i know) and we would break off a little piece and smoke it in a bowl and the effects were much stronger, for around the same time as smoking weed normally. This is coming from a guy who smokes a joint every morning when he first wakes up and casually smokes more throughout the day, so it cant be my tollerance. just thought id put some input
Thank you! Your input is greatly appreciated.
water will probably be fine If you continue to think having a go would be a good idea, there are several simple precautions it is possible to take to increase your odds for a good experience.
smoking resin through a water pipe is probably a good idea as some of the nastiness, ash, and whatever else will get filtered out
I am not taking a test tooorrmw or even in one week, but I need something that will work if I have to in a week or two. it has been 12 days since any marijuana intake and just a few days since any cocaine.when I was smoking, it was at least once or twice daily. very limited with the cocaine, maybe once a week. what do you recommend? it is possible I would have to take a urine test within 2 weeks.
Drink lots of water to help flush your system. And, take niacin (vitamin b12) to help increase your metabolism. Eat healthy, lots of vegetables and not many fatty foods. You will need to exercise, because THC is stored in fat and you want to get rid of as much as possible. The extra water in your body and increased metabolism will flush a lot of it out. Stop working out two days before your test. On the day before your test eat lots of junk and fatty foods to build up clean fat reserves. Eat a very big dinner and drink lots of water. On the morning of your test, wake up and take a piss. Then drink as much water as you can. With two weeks and this method your piss will be cleaner than Fiji Water.
