Does smoking weed around a child cause problems like cigarettes?

Does smoking weed around a child cause problems like cigarettes?

Yes: I agree with everything dr snead said. But why are you using drugs in front of your children? It's bad enough you use drugs, but modeling this behavior for them to mimic will encourage their subsequent drug use. Please think about your parental responsibilities, and put this adolescent drug behavior behind you. If you can't, please seek drug/alcohol rehab help. Do it for your kids! ...Read more

Particulates: Male asks why cigarettes do not arouse cough like "weed". Most cigarettes have filters that remove tars and particulates. Cannabis is smoked directly & is ladened with particulates which must be removed by the pulmonary toilet, which is the body's mechanism for helping the lungs clean. Cough is the engine that runs the pulmonary toilet. ...Read more

Marijuana versus smoking cigarettes: does smoking weed have tar and all that bad stuff?

Marijuana versus smoking cigarettes: does smoking weed have tar and all that bad stuff?

It has less: But nobody really knows, since it can be mixed with other plant products, and each "batch" may be very different from another batch. In general, the organic products found in marijuana smoke are not as harmful as those found in tobacco, but in heavy marijuana smokers can still result in bronchitis and even cancer, especially if the person also smokes cigarettes. ...Read more

What are the side effects of smoking weed and cigarettes but taking a break from weed and start to smoke cigarettes more ?

What are the side effects of smoking weed and cigarettes but taking a break from weed and start to smoke cigarettes more ?

Respiratory/heart: Neither is good to use, so taking "a break" from both would have the side effect of better health. Smoking tobacco or weed creates the same dilemma for lung health -inhaling partially combusted botanical material laced with chemicals. Equally, cardiovascular health is compromised by using either. Infections occur more frequently in smokers too. So quit both & try not to rationalize their use. ...Read more

What are the side affects if you smoke weed & cigarettes then take a break from smoking weed but start to smoke more cigarettes than weed ?

Not good: None are good options.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 times higher than tobacco. 3 times more tar is inhaled. ...Read more

Marijuana Side Effec: Some people have a paradoxical reaction to the cannabanoids in marijuana. Severe anxiety can be the result. If i could i would wish for you a life without smoking nicotine.

I've been smoking weed for 2 years straight i had a panic attack from cigarettes but i can't smoke weed no more am i allergic will it ever stop ?

Not allergic: There are no known allergies to marijuana, but it is not good to use it during adolescence (up to age 23) because it can change the brain during that time. Get back to a healthy lifestyle these years will set you up for a lifetime of goodness or a lifetime of feeling bad because your brain is actively forming now. You still have a chance to build a healthy one. ...Read more

I quit smoking weed started smoking cigarettes tried to smoke weed again now every time i try to smoke weed i get anxiety when will it disappear?

I quit smoking weed started smoking cigarettes tried to smoke weed again now every time i try to smoke weed i get anxiety when will it disappear?

In a few hours: Your anxiety from smoking marijuana should disappear within a few hours as the effects of the marijuana dissipate, but will likely come back every time you smoke it. While most find cannabis to be calming, many react with anxiety. Possibly the combination of tobacco & cannabis is causing this; in either event stop smoking cigarettes-it's the best thing you can do for your health. See my comment:. ...Read more

I quit smoking weed started smoking cigarettes tried to smoke weed again had 1 anxiety attack but i can't smoke no more will the anxiety go away ?

Yes: The effects of smoking marijuana generally last just a few hours- the effects will wane hour by hour and within 6-8 hours you will likely be feeling no effect. However, it may feel like a much longer time if you are anxious. If your anxiety persists beyond this it is not directly caused by the marijuana. Taking magnesium glycinate or citrate & drinking tulsi tea should help calm you. See comment:. ...Read more

Hi doctor, I started smoking weed since 25 days,before that i only used to smoke cigarettes. But now i have started running 3 km daily. So can u please tell me approximate days my body will take to pass the urine or blood test. Thanks?

Hi doctor,
I started smoking weed since 25 days,before that i only used to smoke cigarettes. But now i have started running 3 km daily. So can u please tell me approximate days my body will take to pass the urine or blood test.
Thanks?

Hard to be sure: because it depends on HOW MUCH weed you smoked and HOW POTENT it was. The use of very high potency marijuana for 3 weeks, if you were smoking it all day every day, can cause positive urine tests for literally a month or even longer (longest I have seen is 3 months). Hair testing can detect it back for 6 months or longer, depending on hair length and type. Low level use lasts for 3-7 days. ...Read more

Iam smoking cigarettes for 1&half. Year did it cause any.Problems to me?

Depends on…: How many packs a day you smoke, whether they're filtered/unfiltered, how deeply you inhale, whether u smoke every day, what other smoke exposure u have. Cigarette smoke almost immediately paralyzes the tiny hair cells lining respiratory tract that sweep mucus, etc out of lungs. Smoking inflames lung tubes & air sacs. Stopping now is best thing u can do for yourself b4 u have emphysema/chronic bron. ...Read more
