May accelerate if...: There is no evidence that marijuana slows healing. CBD, a component of marijuana, has many healing benefits, including reducing inflammation-see https://www.projectcbd.org Animal research shows CBD enhances fracture healing- see http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25801536 Some strains have high CBD but some have relatively low levels so best to use CBD-rich strains. But medical use illegal in GA.
