Reduced Risk of Alcohol-Induced Pancreatitis With Cannabis Use.

Publication cover image

“Pancreatitis is an increasingly common clinical condition that causes significant morbidity and mortality. Cannabis use causes conflicting effects on pancreatitis development.

We conducted a larger and more detailed assessment of the impact of cannabis use on pancreatitis.

Concomitant cannabis and abusive alcohol use were associated with reduced incidence of acute and chronic pancreatitis (AP and CP).

Our findings suggest a reduced incidence of only alcohol-associated pancreatitis with cannabis use.”
