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

How dangerous are nicotine free electronic cigarretes/vapers compounds?

Unclear: Certainly, on balance, it is likely that e-cigs are safer than smoking tobacco in whatever form (pipes, cigars, cigarettes), and without the nicotine there is no longer a substance which causes both the physical dependency and the cardiovascular problems. However, there is usually a vehicle in the e-cig such as propylene glycol, and the safety of this when smoked is unknown. Ditto for additives. ...Read more

Will marijuana use, using a vaporizer (no smoke or combustion) affect pancreas, liver or kidney. I under tobacco smoke does, even marijuana smoke. But vaporizing eliminates all toxins. ?

Will marijuana use, using a vaporizer (no smoke or combustion) affect pancreas, liver or kidney. I under tobacco smoke does, even marijuana smoke. But vaporizing eliminates all toxins. ?

No.: Vaporizing merely eliminates smoke . A marijuana joint burns up to 2, 012 degrees fahrenheit (1.100 degree c) and in the process creates many harmful carcinogens. Smoke is the prime cause of lung cancer and other respiratory disorders but it doesn't eliminate all toxins. ...Read more

Does smoking herbal molasses through hookah harm you worse than cigarettes? Its the non-tobacco, non-nicotine herbal molasses.

Does smoking herbal molasses through hookah harm you worse than cigarettes? Its the non-tobacco, non-nicotine herbal molasses.

Nobody knows: Because there are no studies. Any organic matter, when combusted (smoked), hookah or no hookah (the water does not purify anything, just cools it), turns into potentially carcinogenic aromatic hydrocarbons. Whether these are safer or worse than tobacco is simply not known. It is totally possible to live a wonderful and fulfilling life without smoking anything. I would suggest trying that. ...Read more

However, there are studies which estimate that cannabis smokers have less incidence of lung cancer than both cigarette smokers and non-smokers. My advice would be not to smoke, period. If you use cannabis as a legal treatment, there are other formulations available besides smoking; sativex, marinol, etc. ...Read more
