Many people don’t realise the effects smoking cannabis can have on your lung health.
A report by the British Lung Foundation (BLF) found that just three cannabis cigarettes can cause the same damage as 20 tobacco cigarettes as the tar from cannabis cigarettes contain 50% more cancer causing carcinogens than tobacco. Recent research suggests that, for some lung diseases, this ratio might be as high as 1 in 20.
