Marijuana, Cannabinoids, Rhinoplasty and Wound Healing
I think it is highly unlikely that marijuana edibles would have a significant effect on wound healing following rhinoplasty. However, I am not aware of any scientific studies that have specifically examined the relationship between cannabinoid ingestion (THC and CBD) and wound healing. Best wishes.
Rhinoplasty - impact of medical marijuana
Although there is no formal information on this, I don't think there is any effect on wound healing with marijuana edibles. BTW smoking is usually ok with Rhinoplasty surgery due to the great circulation of the head and neck areas which would lead me to believe it would be ok. I must warn you though that this information is what best described as "off the record" as there are no studies to support the claim. Best Wishes though!!
