Cannabis for Jaundice

Jaundice is a condition where the skin, whites of the eyes and mucous membranes turn yellow because of the yellow-orange bile pigment, bilirubin. Hepatitis, gallstones and tumors are common causes of jaundice. Jaundice can lead to deterioration of brain function if left untreated.

When it comes to treating liver problems, cannabinoids like CBD may have anti-inflammatory and hepatoprotective properties at lower doses, but hepatotoxic properties at higher doses. This means that careful use of CBD may be useful for protecting the liver.
