My brother has HBV and is taking viread and hes und, doing pretty well but he never drinks. He does smoke weed atleast once or twice a week. Is weed bad with HBV? Is it as dangerous as alchohal?

Is weed bad with HBV?

viread is stopping virus but weed s not going to make his immune system much stronger.
the part which is most affected with weed is mind...as regards liver i have no idea, try to google oxidative stress and weed, if weed can increase oxidative stress it is definitely bad

Is it as dangerous as alchohal?
no, alcool can be much more dangerous than hbv itself even on those with no hbv.alcool is definitely a pure poison for him
