To spit, or to swallow? That is the question

I post this question here because I'm deferring to those with more medical knowledge than me... Which isn't hard. Now, I don't need to see your medical degree, I just hope you're somewhat medically knowledgeable.



What I'm wondering is whether it's healthier to spit or swallow the phlegm I cough up after smoking. Are these thick salty loogies something my body is naturally rejecting for good reason, or am I spitting out the resin I just smoked, or the beneficial mucus I've heard our systems are lined with?



Instinctively, I spit when I cough, because I feel like if I swallow, I'll just cough it up again.



What do you med students think?

when mucus risez from the lungz into the throat, the body is likely trying to remove it. Spitting it out is healthier than swallowing it. unless you have tb.

about 40 years ago a comedian did his best Reagan impersonation at an SF nightclub, then started taking questions from the audience.

my brother yelled out, "does Nancy swallow ?"

the comedian went off on a tangent about the swallows (i.e. birds) of San Juan Capistrano.

I would think you would want to get rid of it ...your body just spent all that work trying to get it out ..
so spit it out ...

Just from the point of grossness who would want to swallow it ?

Most of the mucus gets swallowed actually, it's a way to recover the liquids of the body. However the "after smoke" mucus should be expelled via sputum. Possibly with elegance

When you say "...with elegance.",
do you mean like the way I've practiced for over 50 years to spit a fat loogey at a chain-link fence, hoping to hit one of the wires and watch it spin around?

And if I'm lucky, watch it spin with such force that it stretches and catches another wire, and spins around that one...

PS.. by the way, in answer to the OP's question; spit it out one way or another...
it won't kill you to swallow it, but why put it back through your body for another cycle, this time through the digestive system?
It's not gonna get you higher by swallowing it...

Actually Bud there are certain substances (Like ketamine for example ... >>> if it was a salt-based synthesis & extraction) which secretes themselves through the mucous membranes and you can actually get high off it again if you re-consume it...If you are in tune with your own body system and are inclined to do so...I don’t do it personally...but I have noticed that it can be done..

I love the feeling of hacking up some sticky crap from my lungs. Of course it gets spit out, hopefully onto the sink so I can evaluate what my lungs have rejected. No pinkish color, or bright green - good sign. Chunks of blackish tars and oil from smoking dope for decades, also good. Dust, pollen, dander come out also.

Vaping off the terps has allowed my lungs to loosen and reject that kind of crap, so now the spit is sticky and clear. Lungs feel lighter, if that makes sense.
