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.See 1 more doctor answer
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.See 2 more doctor answers
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.
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. Smoking both tobacco and marijuana synergistically increases the risk of developing chonic obstructive pulmonary disease (copd). Also, marijuana smoke contains ~ 3 times the amount of tar found in tobacco ; 50% more carcinogens.
It can: Inhaling smoke of any kind can be an irritant to the airways. People with asthma have hyper-responsive airways that undergo bronchospasm in response to many types of irritants. Besides causing damage to the lungs, smoking (be it tobacco or marijuana) can become a trigger for asthma symptoms as well.
I have asthma, I have been smoking weed all day every day for like 6 months, I've been fine so far can I continue? Or should I get a vaporizer?
I quit smoking weed and vaping 2 weeks ago and have shortness of breath, also have asthma, on advair but it doesn't seem to help cant get full breath.
If the breathing: Is that difficult you should go to the emergency room
It could.: Asthma comes in a few varieties, but it is the result of complicated genetics and exposure to lung irritants and allergens. Your kids may develop asthma even if they are never exposed to smoking, but exposure certainly increases their risk. Not to mention smoking exposure increases chidren's risk of respiratory infections and may even contribute to developing of COPD or lung cancer later in life.
Yes: Marijuana smoke contains bronchial irritants. Inhalation with marijuana is more prolonged ; deeper than with tobacco. 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.
Terribly negative: Smoking often triggers asthma and may lead to emphysema and chronic obstructive lung disease (copd). It also makes your airways (lungs) less responsive to inhaled cortisone. The american lung association has advice on smoking cessation and you may check with your local hospital re. Such a program. Can you name me one thing good about tobacco related to health?See 1 more doctor answer

I have asthma and I recently started smoking. I smoke not more than 3 cigarettes a day. I want to know how bad smoking is for me?
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...
Possibly: 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.
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.See 3 more doctor answers
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.See 1 more doctor answer
