weed bad for broken bones?
    #5589185 - 05/04/06 08:58 AM (8 years, 2 months ago)

my wrist has been broken since october. i recently had surgery and they put a screw in there, and i've also been using a bone stimulator to try to help it heal. the problem is, i still dont think its healing. is this because of smoking? i smoke daily, but most of the time not even a gram.

Weed is not bad for broken bones, absorbing THC will not make your bones gelatinous, and at those doses even if it did, there would be no effect. Broken wrists are a BITCH and take a very long time to heal, its slwo going buddy, but u will get there in the end, best of luck and all good vibes to you.

IMO it may slow down your healing process but I'm sure not by a considerable amount. Or who knows it could speed it up like you say?

I had a broken wrist many years ago, and I was a regular smoker,
I dont really remember how long it took, but it was a few months
of wearing that cast.
This site talks about how long some wrist take too heal. broken wrists.

Good luck, I know its a bitch.

Smoking weed can only help, not hurt.

Did you break both your radius and your ulna? I broke both, right in half, when I was in first grade.

no i hit a tree at about 30 mph on my fourwheeler and the impact split my scaphoid completely in half.  i was told the scaphoid is the worst one to break because it does not get good blood flow at all.  here's a scaphoid fracture FAQ
scaphoid fractures


i didnt think i broke it at the time, and i kept riding that day.  i didnt even go to the doctor for a month and a half.  now ive been in a cast since before thanksgiving. :sad:  im used to the cast, but now im just hoping that i dont have to have my wrist fused or live in pain for the rest of my life. 

thanks for all the advice everyone, im smokin a fatty when i get off work today

Hey all, i know the thread was made a while ago but its all still relevant.

I recently broke my leg which sucks balls cos it means i cant go to thailand this year just before the summer. Anyway, there are very few studies done on this, but I did find one from 2008. They discovered that marijuana delayed bone healing around titanium implants. And so if your like me and had a titanium implant then you should be a bit cautious. The odd joint or bowl is fine im sure. But recently when i have been smoking it causes me a lot of pain in the leg.. It almost is like it nullifies the effect of the painkillers.. and then it draws my attention to the pain due to its abnormality and the discomfort of the cast. So for me thats a bit of motivation to lay off it for a bit and save some cash. Especially as im not working cos of it!

Here is the link for the study done: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19077584

Cheers

I'd guess the ataxia/wasting that plagues most tokers plays a role in that; lack of blood flow isn't good for any injury.

I have broken many bones while heavily toking and healed fine, FWIW. I had issues with my torn ATF (ankle ligament) healing, but I wasn't staying off my feet.
