Smoking marijuana worsens tinnitus. Every year hundreds of thousands of people around the world die from diseases caused by smoking. It is the major cause of lung cancer, heart attacks and stroke.

It also narrows your blood vessels which supply vital oxygen to your ears and their sensory cells.
Sometimes, withdrawal from marijuana and nicotine is easier said than done but tinnitus will give you no option if you want to reduce the ringing in the ear. QUIT SMOKING, live healthy and tinnitus free!
