Would smoking weed make a thyroid problem worse?


  • TheRealAcid9

    It depends on the thyroid problem. The three most common thyroid conditions are thyroid cancer, hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism.

    If you have hypothyroidism, that means you have an under active thyroid gland – which usually results in uncontrollable weight gain.

    Smoking marijuana with hypothyroidism can actually make the condition worse.

    On the other hand, if you have hyperthyroidism, where your thyroid gland is over active and its difficult to maintain a healthy body weight, then smoking marijuana can increase your appetite and help with the condition.

    As far as thyroid cancer, it just depends on how advanced it is and how its affecting you. But medical marijuana is recommended for most major types of cancer just because it can help ease nausea associated with chemotherapy.
