Many people associate the very act of smoking with something dangerous and stigmatized because they immediately imagine their lungs destroyed by cigarettes. However, smoking marijuana certainly doesn't have much to do with smoking. As everyone knows, while cigarette smoking causes serious lung damage and can cause many other health problems, cannabis has very different effects.
Of course, we must bear in mind that by smoking marijuana, the plant material is burned, so all the chemicals it contains are burning, many of which can be harmful to health when they exceed a certain temperature. The process produces the most obvious by-products of combustion, such as carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, and soot.
The act of smoking involves creating an open flame and burning, which unfortunately destroys some of the valuable compounds in marijuana. This process produces about 88% of useless matter and, on the other hand, removes many cannabinoids that are less resistant to high temperatures.
