    I sing baritone for my school and I'm really good and that's really the only thing that's making me think twice about smoking weed. I've heard about people in rock bands and things like that saying that they like the raspiness of their voice when they smoke. I get how that's a cool sound in a band. However I sing mostly classical music and I need to be able to control the accuracy and preciseness of my pitch when I sing and I'm not really going for the raspy thing. Would smoking once a week or even once every two weeks damage my vocal chords? I'd be smoking from a bong so there would be some filtration. Also, if it doesn't damage my vocal chords, what temperature water should I use in my bong? I only say this because I've heard that putting boiling water makes the smoke have more moisture, which is better for you, and that ice water cools down the smoke. I don't know if that's true but if it is, which would protect my voice more?
    I know a vaporizer would be optimal but I just don't have enough money to buy one and I would have a hard time hiding one anyways. I've considered edibles but I've heard that they can get really intense and last a long time and that would be problematic for me.

    I don't think marijuana smoking is going to damage your voice like cigs but i could be wrong. If you're that worried about it get a vaporizer
  3. Vape or make edibles.

  4. I, personally, am a female classical singer and haven't noticed anything, although I haven't been regularly smoking cannabis for very long. However I now own a MFLB vape, so I'm not as worried. Then again I currently have bronchitis, and have for two weeks so I really don't know. :confused_2:
  5. weed actually opens up and relaxes your lungs like an asthma inhaler would. I find I can sing better high, without rasping or my voice getting rougher. either that or I just think I sound awesome because I'm blazed lol.
  6. Make some treats, although not practical if your new to it. Don't smoke joints if your looking to keep your throat healthy. And use cool water in a bong, Ice couldn't hurt. And once a week or two? Don't worry you'll be fine.
