Your virus (level) migh get high as well. LOL.
Which is definitively NOT what you want
More seriously, I doubt smoking is going to harm much or help clearing the virus in any way but since you're getting good resolutions about your health (since you are treating), you might as well drop the hashish consumption as well!

Hi Sambo,

You started a discussion here that has been made many times before.

There are people who will point to studies that show smoking pot (hashish) lower your chances of being cured by a few points.  Others will discuss the whole smoking is bad for you issue (which it is by the way).

I treated twice.  Once unsuccessful and the last treatment cured me.  During both treatments, pot was a relief from symptoms and helped me get through taking the HCV drugs.  After the work day was done, the kids were in bed, a little pot really helped me relax and feel at ease.

Smoking anything harms the lungs.  Many people have purchased vaporizers that don't burn the hashish but make it into a vapor to be inhaled.
