  • Does Smoking Cannabis When You Have a Cold Help Or Harm You?

    Smoking marijuana during illness and cold - helps or harms?
    [IMG]file:///C:/Users/Office4/AppData/Local/Temp/msohtmlclip1/01/clip_image002.gif[/IMG]
    Smoking marijuana can relieve the symptoms of colds, but it can also worsen them. As temperatures fall during the winter months, the current season is the season of influenza, many consumers wonder - can you use cannabis by having a cold or sick?

    Scientific research has shown that marijuana can help alleviate pain and extend the airways, but in some patients it can also worsen your health.

    Cannabis can have different effects, depending on how often and how you take cannabinoids into the body.
    Will marijuana relieve cold symptoms?

    There is some evidence that marijuana can help relieve cough, runny nose and pains associated with the disease.

    THC is known to act as an immunosuppressive agent through the activation of CB2 receptors. THC inhibits the production of antibodies and immune cells. A less active immune system can translate into easing of inflammation of the lungs and improvement in breathing.

    Other cold symptoms, such as a cold, can occur when the immune system fights an infection. By reducing the activity of the immune system, marijuana can potentially reduce these symptoms.

    There is also a lot of evidence that marijuana can reduce pain, which means that some can use cannabis to fight headaches or sinus pain caused by the disease.

    Many people also say that cold symptoms make it difficult for them to fall asleep. Indica cannabis strains can help you fall asleep more easily and this is confirmed by almost every consumer of pot.
    Does marijuana affect the immune system?

    [IMG]file:///C:/Users/Office4/AppData/Local/Temp/msohtmlclip1/01/clip_image006.gif[/IMG]
    Some people think that reduced immune function will make the body less able to fight the infection, so that the cold will last longer.

    Others believe that by acting as an immunosuppressant, marijuana can impair the body's ability to fight the early symptoms of a common cold that the body can normally control and turn a sore throat or a cold in a common cold.

    However, there are no studies that would confirm the above assumptions.

    In fact, the effect of marijuana on the severity or duration of a cold is probably minimal, especially for people whose immune system is in good shape.

    But there is one situation in which using marijuana can cause disease. By passing a cold joint partner, barrel, vaporizer or other device, you can easily get in touch with his saliva, making it easier to get infected.
    Will marijuana worsen the symptoms of the disease?

    Consuming marijuana during illness can aggravate some symptoms, but only temporarily and will not make you more sick.

    Some say that marijuana causes them to feel dizzy and confused. This effect may not be desirable when the patient is already suffering from headaches and clogged ears.

    People with stomach problems should also avoid eating THC biscuits and other foods that contain them, especially when they use them for the first time.

    It is important to remember that during the illness, some methods of using marijuana are milder than others.

    Most of the damage that marijuana can cause is a negative effect on the lungs, which is the result of mixing tobacco with marijuana. Tobacco smoke can irritate the lungs, causing coughing and producing phlegm. An alternative to smoking is vaporisation, which we encourage.

    Long-term smoking can also lead to the development of chronic bronchitis. The risk of developing bronchitis is the highest among people who smoke tobacco by adding marijuana to it.

    So if you suffer from lung diseases, think about alternative methods of cannabis consumption.
    Summary

    Without careful scientific research, it is difficult to determine exactly how marijuana will affect a cold. In general, being under THC probably will not have much impact on disease symptoms or recovery time. Depending on the symptoms, cannabis can help improve well-being. The safest way is to start with small doses to see if cannabis can help you with your disease
