What Are The Effects Of Smoking Marijuana Poppers And The Technique Used For Smoking?

Hi, i want to know the long term, short term effects of smoking marijuanna poppers. A Marijuanna popper is smoked through a bong, with a chunk of tabacco ripped from a cigarette and weed packed on top. The tobacco smoke is not filtered and gives the smoker a huge headrush after being smoked. I want to know how unhealthy this technique of chronic smoking is and some effects

Hi,

The adverse effects depend on the amount of cannabis and tobacco reaching your body and brain and the time taken for the same. Not using a filter increases your exposure to the harmful components in smoke, known for causing cancer. The technique you are using ensures a fast delivery of a high amount of cannabis and tobacco to your brain, giving you a bigger high than other techniques. Exposure to high amounts of cannabis increases your risk of developing psychosis later in life, which is a well-known and well-researched fact.

Best wishes.
