Cannabis for Kidney Disease / Kidney Transplant

Cannabis contains plenty of anti-inflammatory compounds that can help reduce inflammation as well as heal scarring of internal organs. Cannabis does not seem to affect kidney function in healthy individuals, but renal function should be closely monitored in those with CKD. The lowest effective dose should be used, and smoking should be avoided.

Also, due to cannabidiol’s (CBD’s) ability to dampen the immune system, it can potentially be useful in the reduction of immunosuppressant intake in those with a kidney transplant.
