“Effects of Cannabis on the Microbiome, Endocannabinoids and Inflammation in HIV”

People with HIV (PWH) have persistent inflammation. THC and cannabidiol are anti-inflammatory in lab studies, and they affect the gut microbiome (bacteria in the intestines), possibly causing health problems. We are doing a short clinical trial comparing the effects of CBD and THC on these factors.   Thank you for the opportunity to speak.
