smokin' weed!  
Hi...I've had a hard time finding whether or not it is bad to smoke marijuana while trying to rid yourself of a candida overgrowth..I partialy gathered that tabacco is bad for you during treatment of candidiasis...right?  ...but does anyone know about weed? I smoke a lot right now just to feel okay...my whole body hurts...and if I don't smoke a TON of weed, my body pain is about an 8 out of 10. Really high...really painful..I'm on the diet now..and supplements and anti fungals and all that jazz..but i need to know if I need to stick it out and give up the weed or if it's safe to continue smoking it?

Have you been tested for Lyme?

Is pot bad for those with Lyme or are you asking because of their pain level? FYI I have Lyme and probably Candida (not yet confirmed). I found that I react to it a lot often. It worsens most of my symptoms. Pot can contain mold, likely due to the fact that it's often kept moist, etc... Before I quit altogether, I put it in the oven at 350 for a while, which is supposed to kill the mold. I seemed to react better to it after that.

Marijuana is very highly medically beneficial, so I don't think it should be bad for your candidiasis just as long as you follow that one poster's advice about putting in the oven to kill the mold.
