Facts about vaping cannabis

Limited studies show that cannabis can reduce nausea in those receiving chemotherapy treatment for cancer and help relieve pain. However, just because non-medical cannabis is legal, doesn’t mean there aren’t health risks associated with it. It's important to think about how to decrease the risks, and how using cannabis can affect your day-to-day life, well-being, and long-term health.

What if cannabis and nicotine is vaped together?
  • Teens and young adults have a higher risk of becoming addicted to nicotine.
  • Stopping vaping may be harder for people who mix nicotine with cannabis because the combination may make nicotine withdrawal stronger.
  • People who vape cannabis and nicotine together have more breathing problems than those who use only nicotine vape because of the increased exposure to harmful chemicals, including vitamin E acetate.
  • There can be more problems with memory and learning.
