Snorting: How much in the nose, and how much in the lungs?

I've heard some people say that no material goes into you lungs when you snort something, but I find this hard to believe as when people snort that is where all the air ends up afterall. I expect that many factors will effect this, how hard you snort, how clear your nose is, how fine the powder is, etc.

Anyone know if this has been studied at all? or if there are publications that have measured percentages?

Re: Snorting: How much in the nose, and how much in the lungs?

SWIM can testify that some does go in your lungs from personal experience.

SWIM back when he was only snorting heroin, ended up with a REALLY bad problem for a while. Some of the shit was getting into his lungs, and he was highly allergic to whatever the cut was. Of course he wasn't stopping, so for about 2 weeks he could barely move 10 feet without becoming completely exhausted. His breaths were really shallow and wheezy, and he was constantly coughing shit up. That was during the worst, but he had lung problems for about 3 months.

He went to some clinic, and the doc said his blood oxygen level was really low from it. He had actually told them about his heroin use, but they didn't even think it was that and gave him some anti allergin rx and antibiotics. SWIM knows it was that, because the exact same thing happened to his brother, who went to this doctor that said he sees that all the time in heroin addicts.

It was probably because SWIM's tolerance was at his highest and he was needing to snort so much powder every day. SWIM solved it by switching over to injecting.

swim definatelly thinks some of it accumulates in his lungs.. he didnt use to have this problem but the uhhh old wear and tear on his right nostril and his heavilly practiced skills at reducing pills and powders to fine lines eventually changed that.. on several occasions extremelly well crushed pills would leave a residue in his lung for several days that resulted in a productive, constant, and painful cough, innability to smoke his bud, AND a raw blistered throat from the pices of pill constantlly bouncing into his throat when he coughed whih also resulted in a hoarse rough voice making freestyling impossible for him and also inhibiting him from snorting more pills meant for oral consumption or drinking alcohol as well and in one case even stopping him from being able to swallow his methadone

so in conclusion.. swim believes he has permenantlly damaged his respiratory system slightlly and says yes residue from snorting things can indeed wind up in swiys lungs

but this is based purelly on swim and other swimmers anecdotal evidence

Yeah, SWIY will physically feel it if SWIY inhales deep enough for matter to go into the lungs since the tissue there is so sensitive and thin.

Re: Snorting: How much in the nose, and how much in the lungs?

The best way to avoid getting powder in your lungs is to snort barely hard enough to get the powder off the table. This make it so most or all of the powder becomes stuck in the mucus lining of your nose and/or sinus.Then when it dissolves you can hawk it back into your throat and taste the beautiful drip

Re: Snorting: How much in the nose, and how much in the lungs?

Thought about this the other day, as my mate snorted some MDMA really hard up his nose and got a really bad instant sting in his lungs. It was burning him for about an hour, and in a very specific spot. I cant imagine that strong chems like MDMA burning away at your lungs can prove healthy. Lung tissue doesn't repair very well does it?

I bet there's a corelation between the strength people snort, the fineness of the powder, and the chances of them getting a bad lung condition or lung cancer.

When pacman used to snort heroin he ended up with pneumonia so some must go to the lungs.

for this reason, my raver friend always cautions people that they barely have to inhale to snort things effectively.

Re: Snorting: How much in the nose, and how much in the lungs?

Swim agrees that some goes into the lungs. When swim snorts the yellow percs he can blow a yellow cloud out of his mouth with the first big exhale after the line is done. This would conclude that the powder went up his nose, into his lungs, and back out his mouth right?!?!

Re: Snorting: How much in the nose, and how much in the lungs?

I know this is an old thread but I stumbled across in whilst doing tagging requests and realised that it had not yet been fully answered or studies included as the OP asked.

When you snort a drug it goes through your nose which is designed like that to trap as much as it possibly can before it reaches your lungs. So very little of it is deposited there and its deposition is dependent on how hard you snort and how fine the powder is. As with snorting the idea is to get as much of the drug into the nose where it can be absorbed through the nasal cavity the idea is to snort with as little force as possible to maximise how much drug goes into the throat and lungs.

Because of this every drug meant to be delivered to the lungs is done through an inhaler by mouth which is where the following measurements came from:
Anything greater than 10 micrometers will not make it into the lungs and then below that particles begin depositing in the lungs however at a certain size particles will be so small they'll be exhaled again and won't just sit there. Given that the nose will stop more particles from reaching the lung we can assume that the percentages in the the following figure are all even less in terms of how much is deposited in the lungs.


dia = diameter. Image from Distribution and deposition of the inhaled particles in respiratory tract NOTE: since i uploaded the image from that paper recently its pending approval still so I'll come back and update this when it uploads
