Brief Answer:
THC and CBD have anti-inflammatory activities.

Detailed Answer:
Hello again

Marijuana has two components THC (tetrahydrocannabidiol) and CBD (Cannabidiol). Both these substances possess anti-inflammatory and healing properties. So we can say medical marijuana or cannabis has anti-inflammatory properties. So medical marijuana helps in inflammation. But street marijuana has less content of these substances.

Dear doctor, I have a dear friend close to me whom recently had heart surgery and is not recovering great.!! We used to smoke weed/marijuana every day together. I know smoking in general is bad for your health. However I found out I can extract the THC from weed and place it in an edible substance. Thus we could both eat a cake with THC in it. Would this pose a risk to his health. Comparing without in general or comparing it to drinking alcohol?? THank you very very much for your responds!!

I have been diagnosed with PVCs. They only occur a couple times a week and are always isolated, never more than 2 in a row. I really want to start smoking marijuana or drinking alcohol again but I am unsure of whether either of those things will exacerbate the PVCs and also lead to something more serious. What information can you provide me on the effects of THC and alcohol on PVCs

i quit smoking marijuana about three (3) months ago and since then i ve had a kind or rash ... not clusters like a normal rash... but small bumps on my forehead and both sides of my nose (not on my nose but on my face below my eyes but above the line of my beard... nowhere else on my face... where my beard grows is not affected even after i shaved it off) and my chest , back and upper arms... i used elocon cream and they disappeared but they always return within a week... is it my body ridding itself of the THC or can it be something else like a fungus?
