Affect of cannabis on a post transplant kidney recipient. Prolong life span?

I have read a lot of contraditory information on the internet. I am looking to validation. I ve done quite a bit of research recently on the use of cannabis but haven t found any solid information on it s effects on a post transplant kidney recipiant. Many public forums give mixed signals but the knowledge level of the posters is unknown, and WebMD claims that it could help prolong the lifespan of the transplant. What are the effects?

Hi,I guess you are desperately trying to use Cannabis but also are concerned being a renal transplant patient.
I would like to inform you authantically to take this idea out of your mind for ever.
Cannabis is used for many medical conditions but certainly not in Renal Transplant individuals.There are all sorts of informations/misinformations available,do not pay any attention to these half-baked stories.
Please take your condition seriously & forget about all these addictive substances
best of luck
