Re: Quitting weed, how long to until no longer coughing up black stuff?
coughing up that black stuff is good though, and weed actually helps you to expel it from your body. weed is an expectorant, while just smoking cigs constricts your lungs and actually prevents you from coughing.

believe it or not, it is actually healthier to smoke weed and cigs than just cigs.

not saying just not smoking anything isnt the healthiest option tho

I get the mucus with black stuff in it whenever I stop smoking for a little while. Mainly in the mornings when I wake up I will cough up some nastiness. It usually goes away in about a week

Re: Quitting weed, how long to until no longer coughing up black stuff?
Seriously, there are too many idiots here sharing their opinion rather then facts; much like some of my mates who still smoke, daily justifying it.

1. When you quit smoking, your lungs begin a phase of repair, regardless of what you smoke. Weed will paralyze the cilia in the lungs/throat as they cant handle the smoke, tobacco does the same. The function of these hairs is to shuffle bad stuff slowly out of your lungs, so it can then be either swolled during sleep or coughed out.

2. From my experience stopping, i was only planning on stopping so i could pass a job drug test, ended up starting to cough shit up after 2 weeks when my cilia were properly repaired (im 20 and have smoke 1-2g of good New Zealand and Australian grown buds daily since 16). Im majoring in boimedicine at uni so i had my research all sorted before i took my break, which stopped me overreacting to the black stuff which people usually do. Bottom line is, when you quit, and have been smoking heavily, youre going to hack shit up, alot of it and feel much better 3-6 months later. The process is slow, but so was the damage process. I like to think of it this way, how hard is it to clean a bong after a good week of smoking through it? Imagine your lungs after years of smoking with them.

3. The reason i remained quit is because like another post i read, i felt unreal, at first after i quit i felt brain drunk for a few days, but then i was remembering stuff much better, had no issues with cardiovascular fitness like i use to, quility of health and life was just better. Generally speaking, smoking the green was some of the best times of my life, but like all things, it needs to be done in moderation, too much of a good thing is nearly always a bad thing. Dont justify daily smoking to yourself like i did for 4 years and a lot of my mates are still doing. Im not going to sit here and hypocritically tell people what to do, but as someone who quit, only from 4 years of heavy smoking, its really not too fun haha.

peace

That's because you are still smoking, when you stop the cillia in your assophagus start to function and expel the accumulated tar.

Re: Quitting weed, how long to until no longer coughing up black stuff?
Smoke inhalation is a problem. Doesn't matter if its pot smoke, tobacco smoke or smoke from a burning building.

Most likely OP your lungs are coughing up a mix of tar and other debris. Each time you inhale you inhale whatever is in the air from dust to ash (microscopic stuff).

Smoking anything on a regular basis will cause your lungs to hold on to 'junk'. Phlegm will often form, for most smokers (who smoke anything) the act of smoking will keep down the phlegm

When you quit suddenly you start hacking up all the stuff that resides deep in the lungs.

Again, I doubt the black stuff is pot tar, its a combination of everything you breathed over the last few years.

Black and brown phlegm can be dried blood. Blood in the lungs can happen with infections (cold, flu, etc) or it could be a symptom of other issues such as cancer.

If you have recently had a lung infection (cold, flu, whatever) it could be left over from that.

Texture is also important in determining cause. If the black bits have obvious texture like finely ground pepper, then you need to see a doctor as this could be signs of a current bit of hemorrhaging.

If it more like talc powder (very fine) then it is most likely dust and debris from your environment that has been sitting around waiting for the smoke to clear in order to come up.

If the black specks are about the size of coffee grounds, then it is highly possible that it is granulomas being coughed up. Yeah that would be cancer.

Mind soot inhalation from a dirty bong could be the real culprit. While the glass will catch some of the black (soot) once the glass is covered you will be inhaling a lot more soot.

Dear Debaser. Because you smoke cigarettes, you don't cough up black gunk. The chemicals in cigarettes cause your airways to constrict, along with paralyzing the cilia in your lungs. Because of this, you are not able to cough up any of the irritants. People who just smoke pot are able to cough up said irritants because there is no paralysis of the lungs, and a lot of the tar that enters is therefore able to exit. pigchef rockon

Re: Quitting weed, how long to until no longer coughing up black stuff?
Wow the stuff said here makes me laugh. It's resin in your lungs I went and seen a doctor about it said it is in fact tar from your bronchioles, more specifically your smallest ones which are your terminal bronchiolioles). IF it was in fact lung tissue i can assure you there would be blood and/or noticable symptoms along with it (shortness of breath, chest paint etc) because lung tissue doesnt just slough off like that especially not from long term thermal damage and tar buildup... that being said its still obviously not a good thing however it should eventually cease. Now long term smoking of any substance can still lead to things like chronic bronchitis where you could still be coughing up sputum for the restof your life, although if that was the case within a year or so maximum the black specks would at least disappear from it... If your getting any chest pains, shortness of breath on exertion (more then normal) feelings of pressure on your chest, coughing up blood or anything brown,yellow,green etc , then definitely go to the doctor. There has been no deaths to mj and that it actually cures cancer. People need to listen to the fact instead of being haters and saying shit that ain't true get over it we live in the 21st century people there needs to be change.yoda

Re: Quitting weed, how long to until no longer coughing up black stuff?
Smoke contains particulate matter. Be it pot, tobacco, wood smoke, coal smoke, etc.

Smoke inhalation (any smoke) will result in black to grey, even brown material being mixed in the sputum (phlegm) you cough up from your lungs. This depends on the composition (chemical) of the smoke inhaled.

How much and how long depends on how deep you breathed and how much stuff is in your lungs.

Even simple particulate household dust that you breath in on a daily basis will lead to the phlegm containing particulate matter that colors it.

Figure at least a year to clear out the lungs of debris (smoke, dust, whatever has been inhaled). Longer if you smoked for years at a time on a regular basis.

Smoking pot means you most likely took huge deep breaths, getting the smoke deep in the lungs, then holding the breath letting the particulate matter sit there. Smokers (tobacco) take quick inhale, and rarely hold the smoke, thus they get less smoke than a pot smoker.

If you smoke both pot and tobacco the problem arises where you start acting like you are smoking pot when smoking tobacco (deep draw, holding, then release) building up a lot more particulate matter in the lungs faster.

Why you are coughing now depends on several variables. If you have a cold you most likely are getting far deeper particulate matter than on a regular non-infection cough.

You should see a doctor and get the sputum checked. Infectious diseases (cold, flu, walking pneumonia, etc) can lead to cells 'exploding' then bleeding into the lungs. While this is on the microscopic scale and each blast won't kill you, it is accumulative and can lead to serious lung problems down the road. Thus getting the sputum checked for viral/bacterial infections and getting that dealt with along with checking for blood could save your breathing 10, 20 years down the road.

I have smoked weed for many years.... I have quit smoking for various amounts of time due to legal issues.....Never have I coughed up black shit..... Nor do I smoke tobacco products.......Could it be the initial buildup or residual buildup of the tobacco that traps the black shit. I didn't notice any non tobacco smokers saying they've had this problem. And I mean non as in never smoked a cigarette in their life.

you will eventually start to cough up black and brown shit. Marijuana has a ton of tar in it, but also has anti cancer properties which seem to negate this.

My doctor told me he has never heard of marijuana causing lung cancer, but it can cause all the other smoker related issues if abused.

If you are legally smoking medically i would youtube BHO. Good purged boh is basically 100% thc. since i started only medicating with BHO I don't cough, and my bong water is crystal clear and hasn't been changed in more than 1 month.

stay concentrated.
