Link between drugs and ulcers?

Iíve had mouth ulcers ever since I was young, but recently Iíve been curious about the correlation of weed and these ulcers. Iíve heard that smoking causes inflammation in the mouth and I think heat and dryness slows down the healing process. I donít think smoking weed is the cause of these sores but I do believe that it may worsen the state of the ulcer. I still smoke, but lately Iíve just adopted some good habits to try and calm my ulcers while smoking. I usually just drink a lot of water and I try not to take so many hits at a time. So far I havenít seen much improvement in how many ulcers I have but the pain has been reduced, which is what I expected since I have grown up with these annoying and very painful ulcers practically all my life.

weed i thinked acted as a catalyst on my throat but never really got them on my tongue until after i quit. wierd. like dom said it was the cottomouth that made them hurt when i smoked during an outbreak.

I have found that smoking weed actually causes mouth-ulcers, I suggest you steer clear of the weed when you have ulcers. You might sleep (or pass-out) for a few hours when stoned, but youíll wake up feeling even worse. Take a look a the the Ē my mouth-ulcer cureĒ topic. I can really swear by it.

I used to enjoy a toke or two, did most definitely cause a dry mouth though, I recommend you deliberately drink extra water before hitting the sack.

totally connected as far as i can tell. Its like a nasty circle. Whenever i used t smoke i always used to wake up worse off the next day.

Ive been having ulcers for the past week or so and have been getting high before going to bed to help ignore the pain so i can fall asleep. However, i seem to wake up with more each day that i smoke before sleeping. Does anyone else see any relationships like this?
