To all the people who say Cannabis cannot affect your Kidneys: (You) They are wrong. Their opinions are invalid. Why would I make such a bold claim? That's a good question. Because no has has been able to back up that claim. Wheres your evidence ...besides your limited and subjective experience? Can you speak for everyone?
Anything you eat drink and breathe in , nay, ANYTHInG that goes into the body through mouth or bloodstream is processed by these things: Stomach, Intestines, Liver, and Kidneys. At least! Not to mention the very critical role the bladder gallbladder spleen and heart and brain and lungs take.
Did you know that even THOUGHTS and thinking , as insignificant as we have been taught to see them, affects your metabolism? How? Another good question. Because it takes away energy. Like excersizing, when you think, especially in large quantities, you are using stored calories. Because thinking requires actual physical synaptical activity. The more synapses are firing, the harder the brain works. Yes in tiny doses but it adds up over time. What's my point? Because even when you THINK , it is affecting your liver and kidneys. Because both of those organs are in direct relation to your blood stream and your ability to think clearly and strongly is directly dependant on the quantity and quality of blood that is coming into the brain. Therefore, everything affects your kidneys. ESPECIALLY your breath.
How do I know? Because I've had kidney pain and it hurts to breath fully without pain its so intense. It hurts to do anything. But simply put and to better illustrate my point, here is a simple truth: THE BODY IS A SYSTEM. A CHAIN. A NETWORK. and what affects one area affects all other nodes in the network. Meaning that what affects your hands will also affect your feet in some way. When you have failure in your body the rest of your body works harder. Because its a system. Even your skin is an organ. And Kidney health directly affects skin health and vice versa in different degrees in different situations.
Look at the skin of a Cirrhosis patient.
Look at the skin of someone with chronic or acute kidney issues.
Now look at the skin of a "healthy" adult.
It all relates.
So to say that smoking anything doesn't affect your Kidneys is a very ignorant pipe dream of a statement.
