Do You Worry About The Side Effects Of Weed?

One of the side effects of weed smoking, as you may know already, is paranoia. There's a lot of people smoking it regularly and it's from the effects of weed that's happened to others, that we are able to see exactly what the side effects of weed are.

By looking at others who have been smoking marijuana, you will be able to clearly see that a lot of marijuana smokers, display certain health problems.

While they're not all conclusively caused by smoking weed, there is a pattern starts to form where there's far too many people displaying the same type of health problems, for it to be a coincidence.

Take chest infections as one example. Actually, the lungs are the most affected area of your body. That's because to be able to smoke marijuana, it's mixed in with tobacco.

It's the nicotine that causes the most damage to your lungs. That's why there's so many people who smoke it regularly, displaying symptoms of chest problems.

Illnesses like:

  • Emphysema
  • COPD
  • Bronchitis (chronic)

And other health problems are fairly common.

One of the effects weed has, is that it will hamper your cognitive functions. That's when you start to do things really slow. In teenagers, when this becomes a habitual problem (smoking weed), years down the line, you can become a lot slower carrying out any tasks you need done. Whether it be making a dinner or doing the housework.

The use of marijuana among teenagers are where the real problem lies though. Teens smoke marijuana for the natural high that the drug creates. A euphoric experience.

The problem here is that during the teenage years, the brain is still in a development phase. The use of cannabis at this stage, interferes with the development stage, due to the chemicals in the brain.

The worst of the side effects of weed is on your mental health though, as marijuana and depression often go hand in hand. People who smoke it regular, often display symptoms of a depressive disorder. Although it's possible that people are smoking it in an effort to manage their depression symptoms.

The most prominent side effects of weed is that it will eventually lead to short term memory loss for those who smoke it consistently.

It's more annoying than anything else. You've probably experienced it at some point yourself. When you walk into a room to get something or do something and then forget what it was you were going to do.

This tends to happen to quit a lot of folks, after they have been smoking weed regularly for a pro-longed time frame.
