I have no idea if it's true man but it certainly feels that way. I used to have to go for fly smokes out on the balcony and I could never get a real deep high going that way. However, a bong will always get me more stoned than a joint, even if the bong is 0.3g and the joint is 1g, that bong will always hit much harder.
I think if you put all the weed from your joint into a bong your question would be answered ;) That would certainly fuck me up more anyway!
I think with the example you've given, the reason why you've had to stealth smoke should be taken into account (ie you're in a rush or the feds are walking over). If you have to bun down a spliff quick, quite often it's in a more stressful situation, which could counteract the effect. When I was younger I remember once coming home from work angry and stressed. Drained a joint in 2-3 mins.... didn't feel anything!
There is a cut off point that holding it any longer doesn’t make a difference but you still need to inhale it right deep and hold for some time to get the most out of if...I’ve proved this to myself over time
A scientifically motivated educated guess would be a possible combination of a few things. I reckon the comment about stressing has some stead, cannabinoids are battling for superiority over stress hormones and create less of an effect. I've learned recently that it seems like the lungs do 99% of their absorption DURING the inhale only, while the lungs are expanding. I found this very interesting but haven't delved too deep into it. But shallow, less relaxed and quicker breathing would nullify the lungs' full ability for absorption even if the breath was held (seemingly rather pointlessly). I'm feeling that this is likely the main answer to this. The lungs are actually fairly useless at even absorbing oxygen considering that's their job. A very small percentage is utilised with each breath so they don't have a flying start anyway. Less available lung space will very quickly hinder their ability. A longer and deeper draw also means a hotter ember and more smoke flooding into the lungs. I believe long, relaxed draws without any need for holding your breath for more than a second will hit you more than a larger joint would if chugged down quickly without full lung expansion on each breath. Try and let me know if it works! Focus on long full breaths after each breath without holding. Keep inhaling until you reach the end of each breath after toking and think about your breathing for just one joint. I really feel like you should feel more smashed and less dizzy.
