Hello everyone. My husband is post transplant and it will be a year this mionth . Hes been having issues with his stomach for months now. Everything is looking good ,except that small issue that he's been having . He's been having some pain due to stomach issues. I would like to bake  brownies or give him some wed. Does anyone know if that would make matters worse ? The doctors said no weed because it can give him fungus , but we if is brownies i dont see how that can happen. Please help me ..

Not sure what a transplant patient needs to be wary of?  With that said, I'm on chemotherapy for brain cancer.  Anti-nausea meds seriously back you up, so I try to limit them to one per night.  Asked radiation Onc. about medical marijuana, he said it might be useful alternative.  He registered me into state system, though I have yet to get my license.  I might ask another doctor, as some old school docters and alot of patients for that fact still see it as taboo.  I brought it up at my brain tumor support group and everyone seemed wide eyed and surprised, even the group facilitators.  Like anything else research it properly, make an informed decision that you and your husband are comfortable with.  Good luck,

Dodger

I'm not a doctor. When I smoked weed for entertainment you got all sorts of odors and flavors, some that were very fungus like. I think brownies are a great idea. You get a better dose by eating it and you don't abuse your throat and lungs.

Weed not only treats nausea, stimulates appetite, controls pain and relaxes your anxiety but it also has cancer preventative and curative properties. Docs, do not know crap about it. The DEA has been doing evrything in their power to hide it for years. Do some research on your own its been proven in reputable universities around the world for 6-7 yrs now. 

About fungus it depends on what state  ur in. Buying from a legal professionally run dispensory should be safe. Street weed could have a fungus but its very rare. I do not think you can clean or sterilize or in any other way treat the weed. If it has any visble mold or fungus or smells moldy or off I would toss it. I took the risk. It helped A LOT and although I may have got 1 or 2 more colds/infections I'd use it again if going through treatment for sure. DONT smoke it. Smoking anythng increases cancer risk. Use a VAPE or make butter/ candies , cakes etc. GOOD LUCK I hope yourfelling much better soon

For those who may be interested in this subject. If you do a little research you will find eating cannabis leaves is said to have many bennefits but the leaves have numerous tiny thorns that will irritate the stomach for some people. A good juicer will eliminate that issue if you have fresh leaves. No fresh leaves, look into using cannabis oil, great for edibles.
