I used to smoke heavy. Sometimes would cough up green globs. Never black tho, you might be dyin.

I cough up black stuff all day.
I couldn’t figure out whether the mushroom is the alien or the mushroom is some kind of technological artifact allowing me to hear the alien when the alien is actually light-years away, using some kind of Bell nonlocality principle to communicate. The mushroom states its own position very clearly. It says, ‘I require the nervous system of a mammal. Do you have one handy?’- Terence McKena

Sport, I've smoked weed for over thirty years [but, NEVER Tobacco!]- and, for the past two I've been stoned 18 hours out of every 24 [it's my ONLY "medication"] and I've never coughed up anything, green, red or black... NADA! Sounds like you have much deeper issues to deal with than pot-smoking.

Re: Quitting weed, how long to until no longer coughing up black stuff?
I smoke cigarettes daily and cough up this brown/black shit all the time. I smoked weed almost constantly for a few years and it's been about 3-4 months since I've smoked green.

Wonder why then, if the chemicals in cigarettes restrict the lungs from being able to expell much of anything, I cough up this stuff several times a day. (I should add that I smoke hand-rolled cigarettes in case that makes any difference)

I bet your weed was contaminated.
"Clean weed" is hard to come by, as commercial growers all use accelerators & pesticides.
Very often it is grown in a dirty rotten stinkhole.

If you are coughing up black stuff, it isn't because of weed. Or cigarettes.

See a doctor.


It's called tar, genius.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1078350



So where's all the tar in MY lungs? I gurantee I smoke more than the OP (and on top of that, I smoke cigarettes too) and I have yet to EVER cough up anything black. I've also had several chest colds over the years, still no black stuff. Explain that one to me, genius

You have a great cardio-vascular regiment. Stop you physical activity and give it time to let the tar build up. You'll be coughing the crap out in no time.

Re: Quitting weed, how long to until no longer coughing up black stuff?
I quit cigs 5 years aog, and relapsed into on/off again cig smoking last year for 8 months. I bought maybe 5 packs over 8 months.

Since when does weed (bong as the method) not deposit resin in your lungs? If that was true the bong wouldn't accumulate... black stuff.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 750833


I have to believe you are not being completely open. If you are coughing up black stuff you have a problem that goes beyond smoking weed through a bong. Do you live in a highly industrial area? Do you work in a coal mine? You should save that black stuff and speak to your physician about getting it analyzed. Coughing up black stuff is one sign of an number of very serious pulmonary problems, none of them nice, most eventually fatal without appropriate treatment.

Could be old dried blood.
Could be cancer.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1171377


Both are possibilities. If it is old blood then there is likely also scar tissue in the lungs, which needs to be dealt with.

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.
 Quoting: Dr. House


Thank goodness some common sense. Without a proper check it is impossible to say exactly what is going on. There is also the possibility of fungus infection, which is not nice.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 750833


Do you drink? I get that when I sleep with my mouth open all night (mostly after a pint of bourbon). I get extra phlegm in the back of my throat and it catches all kind of dust. Happens whether or not I'm smoking weed. I don't smoke anything else but the VERY occasional cigar. I can stop smoking for months and it doesn't matter. It was kind of scary until I figured out what it was. Sounds alot like what you describe.

Dude, you dont have to quit weed, you have to quit SMOKING weed.

Just Vaporize the THC and do not Burn the weed.

What you do is Sublimate the THC into Vapor from the bud.

Geez noob.

That black stuff is only from combustion.

Its NOT from the THC.

You will be much happier with a Vaporizer.

OR

At the very least remove all the plant matter by turning your bud into Hash.

The Combustion of the Plant matter is the source of your black spit.

Stop combusting plant matter.

You only want to sublimate the THC.

Re: Quitting weed, how long to until no longer coughing up black stuff?
I quit smoking cigs about 7 years ago, but I kept smoking mary jane until a few weeks ago when I decided that chapter of my life was no longer sustainable. I coughed up tons of tar/particulate when I quit cigarettes, and now I'm coughing up tons more since I quit pot. I just wanted to get a consensus on how long other folks experienced the same thing (which it sounds like it takes anywhere from 6 months to a year depending on use), but I have to say that some people here are very ignorant on both ends of the spectrum.

If you currently smoke pot and/or cigarettes you need to understand that it literally paralyzes the cilia in your lungs, thus preventing much of the particulate you inhale from being expelled. When this happens tar builds up on the air sacs in the lungs, which inhibits the ability of the air sacs to expand when breathing, and can causing the air sac to explode. It's like trying to blow up a balloon with tar stuck to it, and when enough of these sacs finally deteriorate, emphysema has officially taken hold and your pretty much screwed. I ignored this fact for a long time, but realized I wasn't kidding anyone except myself.

Now with that being said I also know that the human body is amazing at healing itself when given the opportunity. Whoever says your lungs won't heal doesn't know what they're talking about (unless of course you've already brought on emphysema or cancer), but it's definitely going to take time. Make sure to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, and I personally recommend taking some sort of supplement with omega-3's to help reduce inflammation and improve blood flow. 1000mg of high quality fish oil is okay, but new research is showing krill oil is much better since it's easier for your body to absorb and doesn't have that fishy aftertaste. 1 x 300mg of Schiff brand Mega Red Oil seems to be a great alternative.

I hope this helps those who have basic questions, and here are a few short videos to reinforce my points:

this isn't as uncommon as others on here are making it seem....i mean, i've heard on many weed forums that this is not uncommon, anyway.

i've been smoking for over 10 years and about 3 or 4 years in i had a (ill admit, don't hate, people make mistakes!) crack habit for about a year.

i don't know if i was coughing up black shit before that, when i just smoked weed n cigs....but its been over 7 years without crack and i still cough up black or grey stuff sometimes.

then again, when i get sick i cough up specks of blood, so maybe you should at least get a clear from a doctor! <3

While it's definitely true that a bong is super tar heavy you shouldn't be coughing up any particulate besides phlegm unless something else is wrong...
