Hi, As you might be aware that Cirrhosis is a medical condition of Liver and Marijuana is a common abusive drug which is banned in almost all countries worldwide. The active ingredient is Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which is a psychoactive compound leading to hallucination and central nervous system depressant which could be hazardous to liver as well since this passes through after metabolism. Hence it is not advisable to take in any form that would be helpful in your health condition. I hope it helps.
