Could I Develop Asthma From Smoking Weed Also
Possibly: Technically speaking, asthma is usually an allergic condition. That is, the symptoms develop due to allergies to pollens, mold, etc. However, about 10-15% of asthmatics are non-allergic, and tobacco or marijuana smoke can both make such symptoms worse. The smoke from marijuana is typically non-filtered as well, making it particularly dangerous to the lungs. ...Read more
Yes: Smoking (inhaling smoke, which is full of lung irritants and cancer-causing chemicals) of any kind is unhealthy and bad for asthma patients. Weed is illegal under U.S. Law, so one can be thrown in jail and/or convicted of a crime. Jail has its own dangers such as getting assaulted. However, if one's doctor has prescribed weed as a medical treatment, the risks and benefits will have to be compared. ...Read more
Generally no: While weed doesn't cause as much problems with asthma as tobacco smoke, you really don't know what is in it, and any burned material being inhaled is not good for your longs. That being said, the active ingredients in pot, cannabadiol and thc, may have some bronchodilating properties. You don't know, however, whether the weed has been sprayed with insecticides etc etc. Not a good idea. ...Read more
Yes: Marijuana smoking has been associated worsening respiratory symptoms including coughing, phlegm production and wheezing. It can also act as an allergen in some patients.

Also, marijuana smoke contains ~ 3 times the amount of tar found in tobacco ; 50% more carcinogens. ...Read more

Higher combustion temperatures are reached because it is smoked to a shorter butt. This leads to a carboxyhemoglobin concentration that is 5 x ^ than tobacco. 3 x more tar is inhaled. Prolonged use of cannabis can lead to airway inflammation, wheezing ; ^ in sputum production. ...Read more

I quit smoking 8 months ago after 35 plus years and got asthma after quit I have been vaping since not much could vaping cause asthma?
No one knows: I'm astounded with how prevalent vaping is becoming. We have absolutely no idea of the short or long term effects. Quitting smoking is great for your health on a number of fronts, including the cardiovascular benefit. Be honest with yourself. Do you really want to risk it? I'm your age. Time grows short... ...Read more
Inhaling particulates like those in tobacco can cause attacks. These substances can cause inflammation which is the primary reaction in asthma followed by constriction of your lung "tubes". Of course, if you have asthma you should quit. I know it isn't easy but you must give it a try.
Good luck. ...Read more
Not cause/trigger: Smoking of any product can trigger asthma in someone with the genetic tendency. It is an airway irritant. Chlorine gas can make anyone wheeze during exposure but those without asthma will stop wheezing sooner. If you have the genetics for asthma, you should enjoy your cannabis via a different route, or just live with the balancing act of treating the consequences. ...Read more
Cause=no, trigger=yes: Smoking, like being around fumes, inhaling dust or campfire smoke and many other things can trigger an asthma event. Asthma is a lung condition you are likely genetically predisposed to. These exposures allow it to become evident, they don't cause it like a baseball bat causes the lump on your head. ...Read more
Yes: Absolutely! The question asks about "second-hand" smoking, which can certainly cause asthma. However, even "third-hand" smoking where the smoke toxins are carried in hair, clothing, skin, etc. Can cause asthma. That means even going outside for a smoke and coming back in without the cigarette can still put loved-ones at risk! Smoking is a very selfish and inconsiderate act. ...Read more
Is my husbands smoking causing my childrens asthma? That little bit were smelling when he comes indoors enough to be causing asthma in both my kids?
Since quiting smoking is harder on people w asthma...what can ease attacks and make it an easy transition. Want to start patch. However scared to quit?
Not really: Consider asthma a lifelong condition like a missing leg, only for asthma it is not as obvious and can be controlled by avoiding triggers. It is not like appendicitis where you can take it out & you are cured. Smoking is a well known trigger to lung irritation that will always aggravate asthma to some degree. Stopping may actually let you go for years between events, or just reduce their intensity. ...Read more

Smoking is extremely harmful to your health and to the lungs. It is directly related to COPD, asthma exacerbation and the development of lung cancer.
In addition, smoking affects the clearance mechanisms of the lung, and makes it more likely that you will have bronchitis. The American Lung Association has information regarding how to stop smoking. ...Read more
I went from smoking cigerettes to smoking an electronic one can this still affect my asthma and make it worse?
Possibly: The e-cig is probably better than the regular cigarettes- less tar and other pollutants. BUT it still has nicotine and other chemicals in the fluid which may or may not irritate your lungs. Not very much research has been done on these to know for sure. If you can, use the e-cig to gradually wean yourself off of nicotine entirely. That would be best for your health! ...Read more

Your symptoms and even your asthma are likely to improve. Your doc can help with this! ...Read more
I'd onli wheeze in cold climates, when some1 is smoking or wen I laughed too hard at nite. M I asthmatic? There's family hist of asthma
Slightly elevated RBC, h&h and MPV. Only like 1 point above normal for about a month now. Can asthma, smoking or bronchitis cause this? Worried.
Maybe/depends,,,: Your h&h (hemoglobin and hematocrit) could be higher than expected due to the asthma as these indicate red cell mass and are important in oxygen carrying and increase to compensate for the trouble asthma may cause in getting enough oxygen. The MPV might just be a one time reading, but smoking and your Klonopin (clonazepam) use can affect platelets. It'd be smart to see your Dr. For more tests and discussion ...Read more
I quit smoking 2 months ago when should I see my dr about reducing my symbacourt inhaler as my asthma feels better. Or is it just newly quitting?
First of all congratulations. I know how hard it is to quit. Be proud of yourself.
Indeed as time goes by your asthma symptoms will probably lessen to a point when your "controller" symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) can be reduced. Be patient. And keep up to good work! ...Read more
I'm quitting smoking but can someone tell me why the patch says no one w asthma can use it...or to be careful using it? Why...it's worse to smoke!!
I have asthma and my job wants to test to see if im smoking but all I do is chewing tabacco will it show up soley as chewing tabacco or just positive?
Positive test: Testing for these products relies on chemical markers that appear in urine, blood or hair, depending on the test used. Chewing tobacco will cause the same chemicals to form as smoking. You may want to clarify the rules at your job because they may consider any nicotine use as a problem. You will flunk the test. ...Read more
