wasn't really sure where to post this on this site, but anyways I was wondering if there was anything I could do to make my lungs feel a little bit less like I'm out of breath all the time, I smoke about 2-4 times a day maybe I could drink or eat something to help etc.. thanks for the help

Stop inhaling smoke.
Get a vaporizer.
Exercise.

Fixed.

Also, that's weird. I smoke pretty much all day every day and my lungs don't feel like that. Maybe look up some breathing exercises or something? You smoke with papers or how you burnin man?

Of course it's happening inside your head.
Why should that mean it isn't real?

I recommend seeing a doctor.
Smoking a couple times a day shouldn't have you feeling "out of breath all the time".

Yeah he should see one regardless but I did have that feeling when I used to smoke flower regularly many moons ago.

I mean it not out of breath like that I just feel like I have to take deeper breaths more often and I usually just use a bowl, how would a vaporizer be better? what exactly is a vaporizer

Sneaking into the lives of strangers, and letting them fall apart to a new rhythm just to feel better

I've seen anecdotal evidence suggesting that THC is a natural expectorant, in that it kicks the cilia that line your lungs into high gear and triggers an increase of thin, clear mucous in the lungs, which helps to remove foreign material such as soot and tar. This is (supposedly) the reason a nice big hit or an especially resinous product will make you feel as though you are going to cough up a lung.

The problem is that smoking flower (especially of shitty quality, which requires more total flower in order to achieve desired effect) is an extremely dirty way to receive THC and related terpenes (all of which may or may not contribute to the overall quality of the desired effect). The amount of nasty crap you inhale may overtake the ability of the lungs to remove said nasty crap...resulting in a net accumulation of shit in your lungs.

On top of this sad reality, burning of flower is an extremely inefficient method of doing things, as the end goal is to vaporize THC and terpenes without reaching combustion/decomposition temperatures, which is extremely hard to do in a bowl/bong/joint. When these high-length hydrocarbons decompose or combust in an oxygen-starved environment (as is the case for the majority of the cooking flower behind the flame front), you get nasty byproducts such as carbon monoxide, soot, various tars, and other nasty things. Some of these byproducts (the soot especially) may be too small for the cilia to effectively remove, thus becoming lodged in the lungs, and slowly leaching various nasty things directly into the lining of the lungs and the bloodstream. More importantly, you just burned up (wasted) a crapload of the available THC in your flower, because you don't science your flower and whatnot. :shrug:

Vaping does what you are trying to do when burning flower, but stops short of the whole nasty burning part. A heat source heats incoming air to just above the vaporizing temperature of THC, and then washes over the flower product, turning the THC and other lower-weight terpenes into a gas, and eventually a fairly pure aerosol mixture, that then rides the air stream into your lungs, free of the nasty combustion by-products associated with traditional smoking methods.

As an alternative, try to reduce the amount of combustible plant material in your flower products. Invest in more potent flower, or concentrate your flower into hash or oil. The more pure the THC, the more it will behave as an ideal bulk liquid, and more effectively utilize the heat from traditional smoking methods towards vaporization, and less towards burning up into cancer smoke.

And finally, consider yourself as a key factor in this equation. What do you do on a normal day, what do you do while you smoke, how many calories do you intake daily, and what kind of calories are they? If you live a crappy lifestyle, eat crappy food, stay sessile for the vast majority of your waking hours, and smoke pretty often...your lung capacity is only going to go in one direction. Since you haven't stated anything regarding your lifestyle, this paragraph is more of a statement to consider, rather than judgement or ridicule.

Hope this helps...in some way or another. :pipesmoke:

Yeah, now that you mention it I do have a pretty shitty diet (mostly junk food) although I do stand and move around for about 8 hours mon-fri the rest of the time I'm usually sitting on my ass relaxing, I'm really interested in a vaporizer now that you mention all of these shitty effects smoking the old fashion way, can anybody suggest a good vaporizer, also are there different types of vaporizers or are they all pretty much for the same thing ?
