I'm HIV + and would like to use
Jan 28, 2011

Marijuana b/c my meds at times give me nausea. I heard very recently that Marijuana is not good for people like me who are HIV +. Is this true and why? Thanks.

Response from Dr. Henry

Moderate use of marijuana generally has no proven direct negative effects on HIV disease and has been used effectively to stimulate appetite or to decrease nausea caused by medications or other conditions. KH
