Smoking Medical Marijuana– What to Know
Medical marijuana is a safe, natural medicine that has helped millions of people. Most states have a medical program, and almost half of America has legalized recreational cannabis as well!
There are many ways to consume medicinal marijuana, but one of the most popular methods is smoking. Each method of delivery has pros and cons, but people tend to pick smoking marijuana over other methods.
In this blog, we will go over some of the pros and cons of smoking marijuana:
Cons of Smoking
One of the most obvious cons associated with smoking cannabis is respiratory or lung issues. No matter what kind of smoke, all smoke is bad for our lungs, and we risk damage every time we inhale smoke.
Marijuana flower also contains some of the harmful chemicals in cigarettes including tar. This can become toxic to our bodies, and smoking marijuana affects us in many of the same ways cigarettes do.
Smoking marijuana also comes with the need for something to smoke it out of. Many people opt for bongs or pipes, or sometimes rolling papers. However, if you have to bring your medicine somewhere, it can be annoying to load up a bag with everything you need (water, lighter, pipe, etc).
Pros of Smoking
Marijuana flower, unlike vape cartridges or edibles, usually do not contain other random chemicals or ingredients. Normally, it is just flower alone. When you purchase marijuana in almost any other form, it is very common for it to have added chemicals.
Smoking also allows a quick onset of effects. Some people say they feel the effects of smoking almost instantaneously, or within minutes.
It is easier to dose your medicine when you smoke, especially over a vape or edible option. You can see exactly how much flower you are using so you can keep a detailed record of your medicine doses, which os something we strongly recommend.
