Question about low tunings

I have a guitar with a very thin mahogany neck, and I was wondering if frequently tuning between standard and drop b would damage my guitar.

Re: Question about low tunings

Tuning from standard (EADGBE) to Drop B with the same strings?

First, the string would be too lose or to tight to be playable, the harmonics will be off and the tension would be too much of a change to make it viable.
