I had a CT scan recently and the doctor called me in to say I have a very small mass on my liver about 1/2" in size. She didn’t want to alarm me (of course she did anyway) and said I’ll be sent to a specialist for some additional tests.
I tend to think of liver damage as an alcohol related disease, and also a problem for hepatitis carriers, but I’m sure this is a much broader scope than I stated. I have been tested for Hepatitis and was found to be negative. I enjoy a drink, but consider myself a drinker in moderation. I maintain a 2 drink a day maximum goal, and will have a beer or two several times a week. By no means do I feel the need for alcohol, so leaving it alone is no issue at all.
But I’m not explaining my drinking habits, rather I am looking for advice on edibles and how they impact my liver. I have read that edibles are processed by the body (and liver) differently than smoking pot. Since I have a suspect spot on my liver, should I simply avoid any THC consumption at all? I’m not in a state (US) that allows medical MJ use, so no doctor is going to say to go ahead and partake. What is the word among cannibas users regarding THC and liver damage?
