Is It Okay to Consume Medicinal Marijuana After Subcision?

I am not promoting illegal activities. I am a medicinal marijuana patient. I heard that blood thinners should be avoided however I do not know if marijuana is a blood thinner.

Marijuana can cause vasoconstriction and it has been shown to have 3-5 times the amount of carbon monoxide than smoking cigarettes. This could effect your healing by limiting the amount of oxygen that gets to the wound. Poor healing and infection risks are much higher.
