Cant really say the exact amount, would be based on how much you smoke, what method, and even what quality bud you are smoking.
Also THC and other cannabinoids prevent cancer through apotosis(programmed cell death). Cancer is causes when cells mutate and do not die when they are supposed to.
Lastly, smoking your pot pure is a good idea, as far as i know weed doesnt have anything which inhibts your smoke from passing mucus.(which cigerattes do).
Lung cancer is the most common cancer among men and women in United states and 90% of the cases are caused by cigarette smoking. The bad news is that only 12-15% cases are being cured by treatments available today, mostly because of late diagnosis. In this article we discuss about how smoking affects the lungs in different ways.
Cigarettes are a euphemism for a cleverly crafted product that delivers nicotine in just the right amounts to keep the user hooked for life before killing the person - stated by WHO Director Harlem Brundtland.
One in every ten chronic smoker is killed by lung cancer, but the rest are not let off either - they suffer from other lung diseases like emphysema, Asthma, chronic bronchitis and other forms of COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)Pictures of damaged lungsWant to know what does smoking do to your lungs?

If you are a smoker, just imagine the foolishness of self-inflicting such damage to your own precious lungs. Breath is the foundation of life and this makes your lungs one of the most vital and irreplaceable organs in your body. A chronic smoker does not gamble with life, he invites death voluntarily. Smoking can destroy your lungs permanently.How does smoking hurt your lungs?Loss of lung elasticity - When you inhale the lungs expand and they are pulled back to their original state by the elastic tissues lining their inner walls. When you smoke, these elastic tissues get damaged due to deposits of tar. After a period of continued smoking, these tissues get so rigid that they fail to perform their function, so the lungs stay in an expanded state making it difficult to exhale. This condition is called emphysema.
Mucus clogging - The cigarette tar sticks to the thin hair like cilia along the nasal and throat passage causing them to get clogged. The function of cilia is to push the dirt accumulated mucus onto the mouth or nose for disposal. Once the cilia gets clogged it can no longer perform its function properly leading to mucus accumulation in the throat and nasal passage. Smoker cough is a common symptom among regular smokers, which is an attempt by the body to forcibly release the clogged mucus. This is how smoking affects your lungs by clogging up its protection from impurities and chemicals.
Reduction in dirt filtering - Another side effected of clogged cilia is that they fail to filter out the harmful chemicals in the cigarette smoke, with time these chemicals start accumulating in the linings of aveoli (air sacs) in the lungs. A clogged aveoli is dangerous because it hampers the oxygen and carbon di-oxide exchange with blood leading to decreased oxygen supply to the heart.
Air sacs malfunction - The air sacs lose their elasticity because of tar deposits and hence fail to expand and contract with each breath leading to congested air pockets. Many air sacs rupture because of undue pressure caused by these air pockets.
Carcinogenic deposits in the lungs - Continued deposits of tar along the linings of the lungs leads to cell degeneration. Most of the chemicals present in the tar are carcinogenic in nature and hence are toxic to the living cells in the inner walls of the lungs. With time the accumulation of toxic chemicals forces the body to create a tumor around the affected area inducing lung cancer.
ANDThe tar in tobacco cigarettes is a major cause of lung cancer, emphysema and bronchitis. The toxins from the tar can damage lung cells that keep tumors from forming. Cigarette tar also damages cilia in the lungs, which protect the lining of the lungs. In addition to the discoloring of teeth, tar can cause periodontitis, a gum disease that can result in the loss of teeth.
yes, just go to the doctor at first to check out how much tar is in them and then you will know that how much you have, depending on how much is in them how determine how much time it will take for the tar to leave your lungs
The effects that tar has on your lungs are lung cancer that's all i know J.T
Tar will be completely removed from your lungs about a decade after you quit smoking, depending on how much you have smoked.
It clogs up air vents and clogs up your lungs. This make breathing harder and can eventually lead to lung cancerr... not good ):
It causes tar to build up on the lungs and it can cause serious injuries and maybe even death.
It damage your lungs and you may eventually get lung cancer due to the build up of tar in your lungs.
Kurayami: Tar enters your lungs when you smoke and can build up.
Chronic smokers have tar built up in their lungs. The lungs try to clean pieces of tar out, so when you cough or sneeze pieces of tar come out of your lungs.
