Does Smoking Cannabis Worsen COVID-19 Symptoms?

 

Does smoking cannabis worsen COVID-19 symptoms?

The coronavirus is a respiratory illness. This means that if you contract the virus it will affect your lungs and respiratory tracts severely. 

Not only this but it will cause severe illnesses in patients with a smoking history. So, you have to make sure that you are not smoking regularly. 

Moreover, you have to understand that these are crucial times and strong immunity can help you fight the coronavirus. But the bad news is that people with a smoking history do not have strong immunity. This also means that if you smoke marijuana, you are under the radar of the virus. 

In fact, a study recently published in the New England Journal of Medicine analyzed the medical condition of coronavirus patients. 

There were interesting findings and the most crucial finding was that patients with smoking history were more prone to severe illnesses from the coronavirus. 

In addition to this, if you already have coronavirus you need to quit smoking cannabis now, because it may cause the symptoms to worsen over a short period of time. 

For those who do not have the virus and they smoke cannabis, I feel this is the right time to switch to cannabis edibles and other forms of cannabis consumption. 

And the ones consuming medical cannabis ensure that you use telemedicine to take medical supervision before smoking marijuana. In fact, it is best if you consume cannabis in forms other than vape and smoke.
