Throat problems quitting weed

Postby Cali-Detroit » Fri Jun 22, 2018 8:57 pm

This may sound strange, but can anyone help me with information on how quitting can affect your throat, vocal cords, etc. I've been clean almost 3 months, and I have had difficulty with my voice, all crackly and craggly sounding, like and elderly person, and lots of hacking and congestion. Oddly enough, smoking pot would relax me and I would breathe easier, speak and sing much better and not have the usual tension and tightness, as well as the other symptoms. Now I feel like I'm choked and my voice is pinched and strained. I take allergy pills and drink 80oz water a day. Any thoughts or personal experience on this? Thanks

It could be just mucous and phlegm that's been suppressed by smoking that's loosening up. But, and it's a small but. It might be worth seeing your Dr if it doesn't become 'productive' as in you can cough it up. Smoking can damage the throat so keep an eye on it or see your Dr for reassurances.
