What you want to know after getting vaccinated includes smoking marijuana, is it? It doesn't matter what you would be smoking. Be it marijuana, tobacco or vaping, there is no known interference that is directly linked to the efficacy of the vaccine.


Currently, there are no extensive studies of cannabis use and the effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines. However, according to William Schaffner, MD, a professor of preventive medicine and infectious diseases at Vanderbilt University, there is no cause of concern as it will not influence the immune system in any way. On the other hand, an associate professor of pharmacy practice at Cedarville University, Zach Jenkins, PharmD, said that weed could possibly alleviate or worsen the side effects of the vaccine. It is possible to be helpful with pain, nausea, and headaches but it could also make fatigue worse. A disclaimer that it can vary from person to person was reminded by him too.


Legalization activists even offered free joints to newly vaccinated people.

The key is moderation and knowing your own body. After vaccination, a person can approach weed the way they always do with the understanding of possible effects.
