nah, he's a heavyweight, he can blaze mad and not even get a head change
When you are smoking weed, the head change will occur when you first feel the effects of marijuana. You are not high yet, but you're getting there. Usually the effect of smoking too little weed will result in a head change. A slight difference, but you're not high\, yet. The head change effect will wear off fast and result in wanting some more herb.
-there were too many heads on that blunt.
-yeah, i got a head change, that's it.

Professor, "Yeah, I think I got a headchange".
A head change is not simply the point in which you notice you get high. A head change can only be felt by a sworn toker who smokes every day and has been smoking so long they really don't get high anymore. A head change can be achieved by simply exhaling most of the oxygen in your longs and taking a huge bong rip. The lack of oxygen and presence of marijuana smoke gives you a type of head rush in which a vast majority of experiences can ensue. It is sometimes unpleasant and shaking can occur. A true smoker enjoys this head change and will look for it at the end of every hit.

Derek: oh dude I just got the craziest head change
Joe: I know I saw you shaking I'm glad I took the bong from you.
