Cannabis for Hepatitis (Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C)

Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver caused by a viral infection, drugs & alcohol, or liver damage. 325 million people globally live with a hepatitis infection. Types B and C are the most dangerous, and together are the most common cause of liver cirrhosis, liver cancer and viral hepatitis-related deaths. Hepatitis typically affects the liver. CBD has shown to be effective against hepatitis C in particular, but not necessarily hepatitis A or B.
