Viral hepatitis is a health condition primarily marked by the inflammation of the liver. The condition is caused by a viral infection, which itself can result from the action of no less than five different viruses. In addition, viral hepatitis can be caused or complicated by other viruses that do not necessarily fall into the “hepatitis virus” category. In any case, viral hepatitis is a serious matter, and it can be potentially life-threatening when it begins to affect the liver.
Marijuana can be an essential aid in helping patients deal with viral hepatitis. Although the herb itself does not treat the condition per se, it can be invaluable in pain relief during the treatment process.
