Numerous times in true blood the characters are healed by drinking vampire blood but they do not become high. Throughout the series you can become high from vamp blood with as little as one drop, but when injured you do not get the vamp buzz. Why are they not becoming high when injured?

    I always thought it was because so much of the bloods powers were focused on the 'healing' that no one got high. – 22nd Century Fza Oct 18 '14 at 4:38

It would seem that each drop of Vampire blood has a finite amount of power, so to speak, which can induce a variety of effects. Like you say, and from what we can gather from the many times humans drink V, the blood can give you heightened sense of smell, incredible strength, increased libido and heal almost any injury. However, the amount of power that can be hanressed from a given amount of V is finite and the power is applied to the most urgent need at the time of drinking, according to the True Blood wiki article on Vampire Blood.

When a human is gravely injured and is given V, the bloods power is focused, and spent, on healing the injuries, whereas if a healthy person drinks it, the power can be distributed to a variety of different things.
