Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Both smoking and weed (marijuana) can independently result in a variety of adverse health consequences.

Smoking is associated with various respiratory, cardio-vascular and other systemic complication. Marijuana is a psychoactive substance, produces significant psychological effects by acting on the brain. Hence, marijuana abuse by itself has been associated with a variety of psychiatric disorders like anxiety, panic attacks, agitation, psychosis, mood instability, etc.

You say that you are are extremely healthy and have adopted a healthy lifestyle. So, please don't spoil that by taking to such harmful habits.

Wish you all the best.
