Weed for sale is made up of dried leaves and flowers from the Cannabis sativa or Cannabis indica plant. High potency strains, also known as sinsemilla, hash, and extracts are among the more potent types of the drug.
THC, one of the more than 500 chemicals found in weed for sale, is responsible for many of the drug’s psychotropic (mind altering) effects. This chemical alters how the mind perceives the world. In other words, it is what causes a person to become high.
THC levels in weed have risen over the last few decades. THC content in weed for sale was less than 4% on average in the early 1990s. It is now around 15%, and much higher in some products like oils and other extracts.
Scientists are unsure what this increase in potency means for a person’s health. To compensate for the increased potency, some people change how they consume weed by smoking or eating less.
After consuming high THC, people may seek help in emergency rooms with symptoms such as nervousness, shaking, and psychosis. This is having false thoughts or seeing or hearing things that aren’t there.
WEED ON LUNGS
The American Lung Association is studying weed’s health effects, particularly on lung health. We warn people not to smoke weed for sale because of the risks it poses to their lungs.
Scientists are currently investigating weed, and the American Lung Association encourages further investigation into the effects of weed use on lung health.
Weed’s health effects depend on the consumption method. Weed is typically smoked with pipes, bongs, paper-wrapped joints, blunts, and other devices that heat or vaporize weed. Weed for sale is also available in a variety of forms. This includes e-cigarettes, candy, brownies, capsules, beverages, and many others.
While this statement focuses on weed and lung health, it is important to note that there are other health issues that relates with weed use, such as neurological and cognitive effects.
Furthermore, there are serious public health concerns about pediatric poisonings from inadvertent ingestion of edible weed for sale products.
Smoking is bad for your lungs. Toxins and carcinogens are released during the combustion of materials, whether it is wood, tobacco, or weed. Smoke from weed contains many of the same toxins, irritants, and carcinogens as tobacco smoke.
Smoking weed is typically different than tobacco, for reasons other than what is in the smoke. Weed smokers inhale more deeply and hold their breath longer than cigarette smokers, resulting in a higher tar exposure per breath.
Secondhand weed smoke contains many of the same toxins and carcinogens as directly inhaled weed smoke, in comparable if not greater amounts.
HEALTH OF OUR LUNGS
Weed smoking clearly harms the human lungs. Smoking weed causes chronic bronchitis and weed smoke may injure the cell linings of the large airways. This may explain why smoking weed causes symptoms like chronic cough, phlegm production, wheezing, and acute bronchitis.
Smoking weed for sale may cause cases of air pockets between the lungs and the chest wall. This also include large air bubbles in the lungs in young to middle-aged adults, mostly heavy weed smokers.
However, it is impossible to say whether these are more common in weed smokers than in the general population.
Weed use can harm more than just the lungs and respiratory system; it can also harm the immune system and the body’s ability to fight disease, especially in people whose immune systems are already weakened due to immunosuppressive drugs or diseases like HIV infection.
Weed use weakens the lungs’ first line of defense against infection by killing cells that help remove dust and germs and causing more mucus to form. Furthermore, it suppresses the immune system. These effects may increase the risk of lower respiratory tract infections in weed smokers, though there is no clear evidence that such infections are more common in weed smokers. However, compared to nonsmokers, frequent weed smokers have more healthcare visits for respiratory conditions.
Smoking weed may increase the risk of opportunistic infections in HIV-positive people. However, it does not appear to affect the development of AIDS or lower white cell counts.
Aspergillus, a mold that can cause lung disorders, is another potential threat to those with compromised immune systems. It can grow on weed, which when smoked exposes the lungs to this fungus. However, in people with healthy immune systems, it rarely causes problems.
Weed smoking clearly harms the human lung. Regular use causes chronic bronchitis and makes an immune-compromised person more susceptible to lung infections.
Secondhand weed smoke should not be inhaled by anyone.
The American Lung Association strongly advises people not to smoke weed or tobacco products. This is because of the risks they pose to their lung health.
More research into the effects of weed on health, particularly lung health, is required.
