Weed vs Tobacco Smoke

Marijuana, aka weed, has become an increasingly popular form of smoking that has gained attention worldwide with the legalization of this drug for both medicinal and recreational use in many states throughout the United States. The more and more use of marijuana (weed), the more issues that are brought to the forefront about the risks to human health and the impact that it can have on indoor air quality and air quality in general, especially grow facilities that are emitting chemical compounds into the surrounding air. During the promotion of legalizing weed use there have been many comparisons to that of weed vs tobacco. Tobacco is another form of smoking that has also been labeled as a threat to both public health and to the environment, but is this comparison an accurate one?

In this article we are going to discuss weed vs tobacco smoke and learn what methods can be utilized to mitigate the smoke of both weed and tobacco to improve indoor air quality and minimize risks to public health.

Is Weed Tobacco?

Is Weed TobaccoWeed is a psychoactive drug that comes from the Cannabis plant used for both medicinal and recreational purposes. This type of drug contains many different chemical compounds that include cannabinoids, nitrogen compounds, amino acids, sugars, hydrocarbons, alcohols, ketones, esters, terpenes, phenols, etc. Additionally, marijuana contains chemical compounds called VOCs that can be potentially toxic when released into the indoor air of a home and can impact the health of those who are exposed to higher levels of VOCs in their air.

Whereas tobacco smoke is made up of thousands of chemicals, including at least 70 known to cause cancer, according to the American Cancer Society. These chemicals are known as carcinogens, and some of these chemicals in the tobacco smoke can include nicotine, hydrogen cyanide, formaldehyde, lead, arsenic, ammonia, benzene, carbon monoxide, etc. The American Cancer Society also describes the health effects that tobacco can cause such as heart disease, lung disease, or other serious health problems.

Weed and tobacco smoke are similar, however, since they both are known for producing smoke and odors during the use of these different forms of smoking. The smoke and odors that are emitted from both of these different forms of smoking will have the potential to taint the entire indoor environment with their odors and even compromise the air quality of the space where emissions of smoke were released into the air.
