HighTimes Article says Marijuana tar reduces Cancer?

Discussion in 'Marijuana Consumption Q&A' started by Whatpottt123, Aug 5, 2019.

  1. So being a pot addict i'm concerned about my lungs. I used to smoke cigarettes and weed and often cough up stuff even when not sick. I quit cigarettes 6 years ago and also went light on weed too and lungs got better especially with exercise.

    But now i just smoke pot a good amount and still cough up mucus in the morning etc..... I guess its because i have to take huge hits to get high and those huge hits irritating my lungs for sure....

    I dont think i have COPD or anything too serious because i am really active and trained with a lot of athletes.

    Trying to find that hightimes link, but i dont know how trust worthy that article is coming from something like Hightimes.
  2. I've never seen a real study of the effects from smoking cannabis long-term, but I know the smoke contains carcinogens. Combusting any plant material will produce carcinogens. Vaping is the way to go, if you're concerned. Even vaping at high temperatures can be dangerous.

  3. Welcome to GC!

    I haven't seen that article, but I'd highly recommend you pick up a dry herb vaporizer, man. It's way easier on your throat and lungs, tastes better, doesn't leave you with smokey breath, and you actually use less flower than you would smoking a bowl or a joint.

    In other threads on here, I've recommended the Fury 2 as a great and affordable vape that's easy to use -I got my wife one a while back, and she loves it! I use a Crafty as my daily driver, but in hindsight, I'd get the Mighty. I also have a Pax 3 (got it as a gift from a friend), and I've commented that it's a good vape but not worth the sticker price. I use it as my backup. I have a few other vapes (Vaporizer Acquisition Syndrome is real...), but I use these ones -and the DynaVap VapCap- the most.

    Hope this helps!
  4. a lung volume reader maybe just the thing you need checked

    see a doc or buy the 'thing' at a good drug store

    good luck
