Hi and thanks for the query,
H. Pylori is involved mainly in causing gastritis
and peptic ulcer disease
. It actually has no direct relationship with Marijuana consumption. However, in case you got H. Pylori infection associated with active peptic ulcer disease, other factors need to be considered here. Stress
is an aggravating factor in gastritis or active peptic ulcer disease. I believe those who take Marijuana with this condition are actually using it to manage stress.
Marijuana has been allowed to be used legally mainly in oncology settings, to manage chronic pain
in cancer patients. Even under such circumstances, strict control measures with respect to the allowed doses are still well monitored. I would suggest you check on the legal requirements with respect to drug use in your country. I am afraid Marijuana use is no indicated in peptic ulcer disease, and even if its allowed, you might be able to get the drug.
I suggest you consult your internist/gastroenterologist for a proper clinical review. there are very effective drugs today to treat and eradicate H. Pylori. Thanks and hope this helps.
