Weed vs. Cigarettes

By Pascal Amaka.

Okay, so I heard cigarette smokers feel that their tobacco addiction is less harmful than smoking an illegal drug such as Marijuana. Though weed is illegal in some countries, unlike cigarettes, but believe me there's a big difference between them. I'll clarify few:

  • Active Ingredients

Marijuana is natural. Apart from the medicinal components like THC, CBD, CBN, the physical components are paper and dry healthy leaves. While Cigarettes contains Tobacco and Nicotine and is also full of chemicals. Nicotine, which is an active ingredient, is mostly used as an insecticide. It's contains Tar and Carcinogens which causes dangers to the lungs and cardiovascular system; it hardens the arteries. Cigarettes may also contain Butane, Toluene, CO, Acetone (paint), Arsenic, Methanol(fuel). Tell me why you should not rock weed?

  • Health Effects 

Marijuana is known to have active ingredients like THC (which can be used as a cough drop),CBD, is  highly recommended for medical purposes. Marijuana has shown promises in relieving pain and increasing appetite. Cigarette, on the other hand, is known to be very dangerous and unhealthy. The risks of lung cancer, heart diseases, bronchitis, emphysema and high B.P are much higher in tobacco smokers‎. It is easy to see now why no case of lung cancer results from smoking Marijuana.

  • Domestic Use

Weed can be used for relieving cough. It helps to dilate the bronchial tubes thereby allowing more air to pass through. It also can be used at home for our foods. It can be used for cooking, baking. It can also be enjoyed raw! Just sprinkle around that hot plate of Pasta!! While Cigarette, because of the tobacco and nicotine, it contracts the bronchial tubes causing bronchitis and also damages the cardiovascular system. It can't be used domestically because when cigarette is burnt, the smoke emitting from it is more dangerous than the one you take in. So if you sit close enough to inhale cigarettes smoke from someone who's smoking it, it can be risky because the smoke inhaled is more dangerous and disturbing than the one taken in.

I'll implore you make that healthy switch today! Weed is verified! Weed is healthy!
