    So i'm on anti-biotics for tonsillitis. I was wondering can I still toke, or will it mess with the anti-biotics/ have any odd side-effects?

    Nope. You'd be FINE

    Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) the active substance in cannabis, the thing that makes it illegal has anti-biotic properties... So i use cannabis to treat things like infections, espesh chest infections, gets rid of them alot quiker than 500mg tabs of penicillin anti biotics.

    If anything it make you recover quicker and get you high while doing it.

    Well, yeah, but personally I'd wait untill Sunday. Drinking doesnt actually do anything bad, but it cancells out the anti biotics, so they'd be no point in tkaing them.

    Smoking MJ irritates the linings of the nasopharangeal cavity as well as the lungs.

    Most Dr's will recommend that you eat it instead of smoking if you must.

    MJ does not contradict antibiotics BUT, the irritation could leave you susceptable to a secondary infection or lengthen your current healing process despite the antibiotics.

    I have avoided the use of antibiotics for 12 years. There are different ways to treat infection. Homeopatic medicine and herbals. Drink alot of water and be sure to take acidophilus anytime you have to take them.

    Just remember that your heart speeds up, comparable to going for a jog, and then slows down in moderation as you're getting high.

    Whatever the antibiotics do to your heart will exacerbate it. You won't need much to get all paranoid.
