If you smoke regularly, you're more likely to wheeze, cough, and produce phlegm. You're also at increased risk of bronchitis and lung infections. Cannabis can aggravate existing respiratory diseases, such as asthma and cystic fibrosis. Marijuana, which can also be called cannabis, weed, pot, or drug, refers to the dried flowers, leaves, stems, and seeds of the cannabis plant.
The cannabis plant contains more than 100 compounds (or cannabinoids). These compounds include tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which alters or alters the mind, as well as other active compounds, such as cannabidiol (CBD). CBD is non-harmful, which means it doesn't cause a “high. The latter area of research may be particularly important because communities of color in the United States can be disproportionately affected by natural and synthetic cannabinoids in relation to use and exposure and the legal implications of criminalizing marijuana.
However, some people who use marijuana may experience some very uncomfortable side effects, especially when using marijuana products with high levels of THC. Studies have shown that people who don't use marijuana report only the mild effects of the drug from a nearby smoker, under extreme conditions (inhaling a lot of marijuana smoke for hours in a locked room).
