Customer Question

Can I smoke weed afeter my thyroid gland surgery

Thanks for this question. Smoking of any sort post thyroid surgery or any major surgery is NOT advisable for atleast the first 4-6 weeks after the surgery. This is because smoking can interfere with healing of the wound as well as cause problems breathing. This holds true for marijuana as well. Once the above stated time period passes, you can safely resume smoking marijuana.
