On recovery process of head injury, contusions on frontal lobe, still has loss of taste and smell. How will pot affect brain injury?

HI. My boyfreind had a serious head injury about 2 months ago, very serious, two large contusions on the frontal lobe . He was hospitalized for a month. He is recovering well, but still can t taste and smell. He really likes his weed and hasn t been smoking it, but is starting to crave it and claims that he has researched it and that pot is safe with his head injury. He is also on a lot of antidepressants, an antipschyotic and more. How will pot affect his brain injury?

Good evening. Well personally speaking he should avoid pot till he is off medications. Combinging it with antidepressants and antipsycotics can be harmful for the brain as it is gonna cause even mre sedation and hallucinations. So keep it away from him as much as u can
