For Chronic Pancreatitis can you smoke Weed As Pain Relief

Another email I received this week is can you smoke weed for pain relief if you have chronic pancreatitis. The simple answer is no. While it may make you feel better and ease the pain, it is causing more damage for your already effected pancreas. Smoking marijuana or also known as weed during chronic pancreatitis is risking your health even further. It is highly likely your condition will deteriorate quickly if you continue to smoke weed.

Marijuana like all other forms of smoking involves toxins entering your body. Marijuana unlike tobacco smoking can cause pain relief, however the pancreas is scarred already and the toxins that enter the pancreas from smoking weed can cause even more damage. You might feel better instantly however the next day your pancreas will be struggling even further. I can't be strict enough in emphasizing the importance of not smoking or drinking at all if you have had pancreatitis, especially if you have chronic pancreatitis. Chronic pancreatitis can prove fatal, however it can be managed well to ensure no complications arise. By managing your chronic pancreatitis you need to cut out all your toxins, no drinking or smoking, no fast food and no soft drinks. Eat healthy, live a clean active life and stay positive.

I am not a medical expert however i have had several bouts of acute pancreatitis. This is the lesser form before having chronic pancreatitis. If you have any more questions or concerns i advise you to go to your doctor straight away. If you have chronic pancreatitis you can still live a normal life. You just need to take extra care of your health to ensure no complications arise. Do as much research as you possibly can on these subjects. Look at some major sites, this site also directs you to a popular electronic pancreatitis help kit which has great customer feedback. Apart from that i wish you great health.

Smoking Weed with an Inflamed Pancreas? What does Weed do to you?

A common question being asked through email is can you smoke weed with an inflamed pancreas or after having an inflamed pancreas. I am shocked by the number of weed smokers, i get more emails about this then from those with alcohol related questions. I have some strong advice, which i hope you take on board.

Any form of smoking carries toxins. Marijuana also known as weed is extremely bad for your pancreas as it is full of toxins. I would advise you not to smoke marijuana. Also don't smoke tobacco or any form of cigarettes. The truth is you need to stay away from marijuana (weed) and every other toxin. My rule is no alcohol or recreational drugs. However my condition has been acute pancreatitis and on special occasion i do have a couple of drinks.

So once again i advise you to see a medical professional. But the simple answer is don't smoke weed, if you do ask your local doctor or hospital attendant. If you can't quit but want to then seek help from an addiction facility, these can be of great help. Try avoid consuming any toxins. This is much better for your body and pancreas.

Similar to acute cases you will need to clean up your diet. You will need to eat low fat, healthy foods such as fruit and vegetables.
