Does smoking pot / marijuana help reduce outbreaks?

6 posts in this topic

I'm curious if anyone has tried smoking pot to reduce their daily stress and possibly reduce outbreaks? I seem to have had more CS outbreaks lately and I am pretty sure they are stress related. Would love any feedback/opinions on this. Thanks so much.

Marijuana has a negative affect on your immune system, and anything that hurts your immune system helps this virus.

If you want to reduce the stress in your life, take up yoga.

Thanks, that makes sense. And I agree yoga is wonderful, I have been doing it for years. Namaste.

Ive been known to smoke a lil doobage every so often. I dont know that I would rely on it purely as a tool to prevent possible outbreaks, but I dont think will be too bad if you like to imbibe every now and again. Sometimes I like to have a little bit at the end of the week once all my priorities are taken care of, fire up the PS3 and just chill.

I've been wondering the same thing but for a different reason.. When I was first diagnosed a year and a half ago I already smoked occasionally but picked it up much more frequently..Like..all day every day.. eventually I came down to just every other day.. and now it's about every few days.. i wouldn't say i've seen much of a difference in it making it worse or better and i definitely wouldn't rely on it .. buuttttt... It does keep me from emotionally breaking down. Which I've noticed I get irritated 'down there' when I "go off the deep end" from emotional stress..

So... it did help me ..does..

I get irritation "down there" too when I am emotionally breaking down! Its amazing how QUICK the virus reacts to how your body reacts!

And I partake...oh yes.

      They were using the same scare tactics when Reagan first started running for president and he turned out to be one of the best leaders our country has ever had.   JB

      @fixme1Correct. He is creating a preventative. Sure could've used that about six months ago. What I'm praying for is a cure for the already infected. I want this thing out of me.

      Hi all,  Any fellow hsv2 suffers experience constant prodome (tingling in penile region) and pain in (right) testicle also feels hot/warm there ?  Not sure if this is herp related or something else?  Any advice ?

      I directly relate my sciatica to an impending OB as that is the only time I have a problem. If I am fighting the OB the sciatica will stick around until either the OB flares up or disappears. Makes sense as that is the area where the virus hides out. I have learned from my own experiences if my body is stressed because it is working on another issue the HSV will become the predominant problem. I used to believe HSV was the root of the problems. Now I understand it is the indicator that my chemistry is off balance or dealing with something else. Good reason to keep myself on track to keep my body in a position to fight back so I don't have to. HSV is my health barometer! It sounds like your body is dealing very well with the HSV under normal conditions. Nasty to get poison ivy with such similar symptoms to HSV you get a double whammy! I truly Hope that resolves quickly for you!

      Hopefully if it comes out in one country it will get licenced for use in other places too? I think the main thing is that someone somewhere develops the capability as that's the starting place.  Can someone just clarify for me: Is this for use for HSV1 initially?  If so will that be both oral and genital? Thanks Lucy

      Yea, but... this is in Germany. How does that help us here in the USA?

      It's great to have this site to ask these personal question though! i hope it has rested your mind Hayitsmay, I have always been cautious about passing my friendly H on from a dirty towel. It makes me panic if a friend needs a shower and wants to borrow a towel, I start worrying in case I never washed then at a high enough temperature to kill the H virus. These posts have helped me on my understanding, thanks WilsonInAus

      Put it this way the way people contract genital herpes is thru sex or oral sex ie a person with a cold sore give you oral sex and infected you with genital herpes.  You can however contractor infections through contaminated toilet
