should it be used or not especially the two weeks before surgery
Answer 1 Well it is recommended not to use marijuana before or after lap band surgery. Marijuana is a common form of drug used by the Americans and other people of the world which is an stimulant and have adverse effects on the body. When it comes to lap band surgery and the side effects caused by the consumption of marijuana then in the recent study it have been detected that marijuana stimulates the endocannabinoid system of the body and an overreacted endocannabinoid system leads to obesity as well as slow down your metabolism.
Lap band is a weight loss surgery and the main motive of the surgery is to reduce your body weight by limiting excess food supply and by burning excess body fat. But a continuous consumption of drugs like marijuana does not help for the purpose. Marijuana increases your body weight by increasing endocannabinoid enzymes and you are not able to control your weight and the lap band becomes a total failure. It is good not to take the drug before surgery because it can get you a negative certificate for the surgery. So better quit the bad habit...!!!
