    I recently had a collapsed lung 40% and I did the research and it turns out weed can collapse your lungs because of residu etc etc does not mean everyone will get a collapsed lung but I guess i am more prone. Will a vaporizer collapse my lung? is it smoke is it safe? I love weed but I dont want to die or hurt my body is this a reliable safe method of smoking my herb?

    Certainly more healthy than smoking, but don't know if I'd go that far.

    Cig smoking makes it more likely to have a collapsed lung. As for vaping, it has to be easier on the lungs. Stay away from very deep, lung filling breaths.

    The problem lies not in what you inhale but in how hard and deep you inhale. Pot smokers often take hits that are much larger than the amount of air they'd normally inhale. This can, under the right (or wrong) circumstances, create the kind of internal injuries that lead to a collapsed lung.

    When you vaporize, you are simply heating the herbs at a much lower temperature versus smoking. By doing this, you are avoiding many of the dangerous side effects that are associated with combustion (smoking).
