No. Exposing lung tissue to any inhalant, not indicated as a medication, may cause continued damage. There is no safe way to smoke.
The disease components of COPD are Emphysema and Chronic Bronchitis. Emphysema is the destruction of lung tissue; this results in less surface area availability for oxygen and carbon dioxide to exchange in the blood.
Chronic Bronchitis is inflammation and increased mucous production in the airways; both of which "obstruct" airflow.
Inhaling anything other than air, and medication, may continue the progression of these conditions.
