Cannabis for Hepatitis

Studies and Information on Cannabis for Hepatitis

Hepatitis is inflammation of the liver and can be characterized as acute or chronic. Acute hepatitis usually lasts no more than a couple of months. Chronic hepatitis can be a lifelong debilitating disease.

Most commonly, the liver becomes inflamed as a result of the hepatic viruses A, B, C, D, or E, which are a major health problem worldwide. Viral hepatitis is contagious, while non-viral forms of hepatitis are not.

In some cases, toxins, alcohol, and many pharmacological medications such as acetaminophen and ibuprofen can also produce hepatitis.
