When is it safe to smoke marijuana after wisdom teeth removal? I had my teeth removed november 30th and was wondering if its safe to smoke again?
After wound healing: Smoking is not good for your lungs, and marijuana has the side effect of decreasing salivary flow and therefore produces a dry mouth and gum disease. Tooth socket healing is best supported with normal salivary flow, and usually takes about three weeks. Ask your dentist or oral surgeon if the would has closed sufficiently, and then make your decision. ...Read more

THC saliva tests: Detection time can be up to 72 hours - possibly longer with chronic use-30day.

I would like to test my son for marijuana use with a mouth swab test. How long do I have to test him after his last use?
I'm a habitual marijuana smoker, been for 5years, it's 2:21Pm now will I pass an oral mouth swab test at 7:30Am Monday if I stop now?
I am not familiar with oral mouth swab tests but this is likely a form of saliva testing and that generally shows use in the past 24-48 hours, so if you stop now you should pass the test.

In any case, most doctors, myself included, are not likely to want to help you¨fool¨a drug test, unless total abstinence was your plan going forward! ...Read more

Ok We were smoking a bowl of marijuana and he got a mouth/cold sore what could happen to him knowingly I do have some small wart HIV negative/Hpv nag?
Damage to your head:
It is not from the cold sore or the wart, but from using weed. MJ is a psyho-active drug and it is messing with your brain.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

I regularly smoke cannabis to ease my anxiety. I have to have wisdom teeth surgery with an iv. How close to the surgery should I stop smoking?
Cannabis and anxiety: Like most pot smokers, you will probably be surprised to learn that even though smoking may seem like it helps your anxiety, regular use changes your brain chemistry in ways that increase baseline anxiety. See a therapist who specializes in treating anxiety. There are many good ways to treat anxiety, but they are much more work than taking a drug, whether pill or pot. A former client said smoking did not really help with his depression and anxiety, it just "lowered his give a sh** factor." Action oriented cognitive and behavioral approaches we took in his therapy were what gave him the tools to actually do something different when he felt anxious. It is more effective to act your way into thinking and feeling differently than it is to try to think or feel your way into being able to act differently. In regard to your wisdom teeth removal, I am not sure what that has to do with smoking or not. ...Read more
Its been 6 days since I had I believe tooth #12 and # 18 removed. An upper and lower on my left side. Is it safe to vaporize cannabis?
What does safe mean: If you mean in terms of causing bleeding or problems healing in the extraction sites, it should not nave any effect. How safe it is depends on how you use it, just like alcohol. Vaping is likely safer than combusting (smoking), but its overall safety depends on your mental health history, risk of other substance problems, and your underlying psychiatric issues, as well as how much, how often. ...Read more

You didn't finish: But sounds like the answer is no. Second-hand marijuana smoke will virtually never cause a positive urine test (unless it is in a closed car with 5 people smoking and you inhaling deeply). In addition, unless they are doing hair follicle testing, nothing from that many months ago would be detectable in a urine or saliva test, and might not even be in most hair samples, depending on length. ...Read more
