What Is the Impact on the Body of Smoking Marijuana Daily?

Medical marijuana is legal in Ohio, and thousands of patients have already received their recommendations! In order to access any of Ohio’s dispensaries, you will need your medical marijuana card. Cannabis is available in a variety of forms in the State of Ohio.

Many medical marijuana patients prefer raw marijuana flower for their delivery method of choice. Cannabis flower is relatively convenient and can be smoked with a device. Smoking cannabis is very popular, because its onset of effects is very quick compared to other methods.

There are many ways to smoke cannabis, but some of the most popular include bubblers, bongs, pre-rolls, and pipes. Although smoking cannabis is very different from smoking cigarettes, it is never beneficial for people to introduce smoke into their lungs.

Marijuana has been increasing in popularity for decades and only continues through state policies to legalize it. This draws attention to an important question: How does marijuana smoke impact our bodies?

Smoking Marijuana

Smoking cannabis involves burning flower, which converts the plant into inhalable smoke or vapor. The smoke from burning flower can compromise the function of some organs in the body when it enters the lungs.

Smoking marijuana, however, is nowhere near as bad as smoking cigarettes. Since marijuana is all natural, it does not contain many carcinogens or toxins that cigarettes have. Although cannabis flower does not contain many chemicals, the smoke alone can still be harmful to our bodies.

Although smoke from burning marijuana flower can be detrimental to the function of our organs, it is very widely used and recommended by doctors everywhere. This is due to its healing properties and natural composition.

Many of the prescription drugs that patients are prescribed nowadays come with warning labels containing tens of unfavorable side effects. This is a huge reason for the shift we are seeing from patients using prescription drugs to cannabis.

The Dangers of Smoking

Continuously introducing smoking into your lungs can be harmful regardless of what you are smoking. Here are some parts of the body that may be affected by smoking daily:

  • Mouth

  • Throat

  • Esophagus

  • Larynx/Voice Box

  • Pancreas

  • Kidneys

  • Colon

  • Bladder

  • Liver

  • Cervix

  • Stomach

  • Blood and Bone Marrow (Myeloid Leukemia)

Cardiovascular Effects

The introduction of smoking into the lungs can also lead to cardiovascular issues. Any damage to the heart can be very serious because of how important it is to our daily functions. Smoke from cannabis flower can also damage vessels located in the vascular and circulatory systems.

Smoke can cause damage which can lead to plaque build up in our arteries. It can also narrow out our blood vessels which may increase the risk of blood clots.
